One of Puglia’s most unique stays, Masseria Cervarolo is a shining example of traditional Apulian hospitality, within the delightful environs of a sprawling country estate. The true essence of a typical Apulian masseria (country house), the property features original 16th century trulli structures and a charming stone farm house, which have all been masterfully restored using authentic materials and with great attention paid to preserving the property’s historic architecture. The property’s enchanting grounds also include an 18th century chapel featuring a Baroque altar with original frescoes that have been lovingly restored.
Located just six kilometers outside of Ostuni in the area’s gentle countryside, the estate features 18 guest rooms dispersed between the farm house and the property’s series of conical-shaped trulli structures. Each room is decorated with handcrafted textiles and furnishings, many of which have been restored from vintage pieces, that honor regional design traditions and accentuate the unique character of each room while cultivating a warmly inviting atmosphere. Every guest room is outfitted with a flat screen television, safe, mini bar, radio, Internet connection and air conditioning. The hotel’s deluxe amenities include an expansive outdoor pool with bar and a restaurant that pays homage to traditional Apulian cuisine using only seasonal homegrown produce and locally sourced ingredients. Masseria Cervarolo is also distinguished by its commitment to environmental sustainability, exemplified by the generation of its own power through solar panels, and its eco-friendly practices. For its efforts the Masseria has received EU Ecolabel certification.
