The Property

Set in the heart of Puglia’s Salento peninsular, on a vast ancient olive grove, Masseria Calavaggi combines traditional design and craftsmanship with tasteful furnishings and modern comforts.


View property details
Built in the local 'pietra leccese stone', the main building comprises three large en-suite double bedrooms – one of which includes a separate ‘children’s’ bedroom. In addition there is a large fully equipped, open plan kitchen and utility room as well as dining and living area. Rustic marble floors and high vaulted natural stone ceilings epitomise the interior of a traditional masseria while both underfloor heating and air-conditioning ensure complete comfort throughout the year.

Each room of the main building opens into a walled courtyard featuring vaulted cloisters on either side and provides a shaded, tranquil area for lunch or evening cocktails. Two olive trees surrounded by lawn and an abundance of climbing Wisteria, Begognia and Bougainvillaea make for a very pretty setting.

Large shuttered doors to the back of the masseria open up onto a vine covered pergola patio area offering a substantial outdoor dining table and a stunning marble infinity saline swimming pool with seamless, sweeping views across both the landscaped garden featuring lavender, citronella, fig and citrus trees and beyond to the ancient olive grove. Vincent Sheppard furniture and large sun shades allow for wonderfully lazy days around the pool while the garden also offers both a traditional stone and gas barbecue, organic vegetable garden, outdoor shower, Bose outdoor speakers, and a river-sand filled ‘bocce’ court.

Stairs to the flat roof of the ‘masseria’ offer views of the five acre property, the nearest village of Carpignano and mile-upon-mile of olive grove providing a wonderfully romantic star-gazing spot at night.

The property offers further accommodation in the form of a pietra leccese stone-built studio adjoining the masseria comprising a double bedroom and en-suite bathroom as well as a traditional-style ‘trullo’ overlooking the pool that offers a double bedroom and bathroom. Like the main masseria, both these units are fully air conditioned.

Surrounded by a stone wall and with electric gates, Calavaggi offers complete privacy and tranquillity while satellite TV and WiFi give you access to the wider world should you need.

How to get there
A quick drive offers easy access to the supermarkets, pharmacy, banks, shops and cafes of nearby villages, Carpignano and Martano, and the property is a short distance from some of Puglia’s finest sand and rock beaches. The region offers some of Italy’s most delectable cuisine and there are numerous restaurants within close proximity of the masseria.

Less than thirty minutes car drive north of Masseria Calavaggi stands the delightful, baroque city of Lecce, known as ‘the Florence of the South’, while fifteen minutes to the south east lies the enchanting historic coastal town (and UNESCO World heritage site) of Otranto. In addition, the coastal road between Otranto and S.Maria di Leuca is one of the most breath-taking and scenic routes in Puglia; the historic town of Gallipoli on the western side of the peninsula offers spectacular sunsets.
