Masseria Valle dei Ciliegi apartment
The owners have completely restored the property and have furnished it in a unique Victorian style to a phenomenally high standard. As you enter the property, you step into a living area. This has the original tiled floors which provide a stunning base for the beautiful, high quality furnishings in this room. Doors lead from here to each of the bedrooms, bathroom and family kitchen. Each bedroom is a luxurious, welcoming space. The first bedroom has a stunning four poster bed with luxurious cream drapes whilst the other bedroom is equipped with wrought iron kingsize double bed. Both have substantial wardrobes which cleverly hide a large modern TV. The bathroom is a good size and has a large shower, bidet, sink and toilet. Fluffy bathrobes and slippers are provided as are toiletries. The kitchen has bespoke units and is well equipped with everything you should need during your stay including a fridge, hob, microwave, toaster, coffee machine and dishwasher. Pale blue units provide a calming space to cook. Again, the wall mounted TV is cleverly disguised to retain the original feel and character of the building.
Doors lead from the kitchen to a spacious roof terrace. The roof terrace is a superb space and offers the perfect setting to enjoy meals and enjoy each others company. It enjoys views over the swimming pool to the front and to the vegetable gardens and orchard to the rear.
Outside, the property is set in immaculately tended gardens and enjoys use of a large communal swimming pool. This is open from 1 May to 30 September each year. 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.
