Luxury apartment in Puglia








Apartment Gelso is an absolutely beautiful apartment in the Masseria Valle dei Ciliegi, close to Polignano al Mare. This is a lovely seaside town with Blue Flag beaches and a number of excellent bars and restaurants. This property definitely feels more like a five star hotel more than a self catering holiday rental.


Inside the property has two stunning bedrooms, one of which is is a double room and the other a twin. Both rooms have patio doors which open up to the gardens and which enjoy views over the pool area. The apartment also boasts an open plan living, dining and kitchen area. The colour scheme is wonderfully neutral with shade of cream, biege and pale blue. And there are a host of amazing artistic touches throughout the property, all of which create a truly unique space.

Outside, the property is set in immaculately tended gardens and enjoys use of a large communal pool. This is open from 1 May to 30 September each year. The outside space is simply beautiful... so many wonderful touches that have created a truly relaxing space in which to switch off and unwind. For those with children, there is a lovely play area. And there are plenty of areas to sit and relax, whether it's on one of the luxurious loungers that surround the pool, in the shade under the pergola adorned with vines or even in the hammocks under the trees. Subject to availability, guests are welcome to help themselves to the delicious produce grown within the fruit and vegetables garden on site. There are plenty of fruit trees including figs and lemons whilst there are a number of vegetable and salad beds. There is even a small farm on site with miniature pot belly pig, rabbits, goats and chickens.

Finally, there is a massage room where individuals or couples can enjoy a massage. The owners have plans to provide full spa facilities from 2018 onwards. And, for those who would like the ultimate holiday, we can also arrange a chef for you during your stay.

This truly is an idyllic setting for any stay in Puglia... a return to nature in the most luxurious of settings. In fact, the property feels much more like a five star hotel than a self catering apartment. Rooms are cleaned daily and a transfer service to and from the airport and into the local town of Polignano can also be provided should you wish not to hire a car during your stay.

The nearest restaurant is just 3 km drive away and the nearest beaches just 6 km away. Polignano al Mare is a lovely base for your holiday in Puglia, boasting some excellent Blue Flag beaches as well as a host of wonderful restaurants, many of which specialise, perhaps not surprisingly, in the superb seafood that the Puglian coast offers.

For those travelling as part of a larger group, there are another two 2 bedroom apartments in the masseria. Please contact us for more details.
