Masseria Marvicino

Just outside the hamlet of Speziale, a place which has been named the “most delicious crossroad of Italy”, lies Masseria Marvicino in an ideal position between the sea and land of Puglia. Once a working farm, this holiday home is located in the Plains of Olives (declared a UNESCO world heritage site), a stone’s throw from the picturesque Valle D’Itria and the Adriatic coast, which showcases some lovely sandy beaches. The area is also ideal for cycling as it offers cycle paths though the olive groves starting just a few metres from the house. The hamlet of Speziale, with two excellent restaurants and a wonderful cheese dairy come grocery store, can be reached on foot.
The Masseria is absolutely private and serene, with gorgeous views onto the olive groves and the Selva di Fasano (the verdant slope of the Murge) as a soothing backdrop. From the roof top that climbs above the olive trees you can rejoice at the view of the blue Adriatic see.
The owner has restored the Masseria with her expertise as an Interior Designer and deliberately preserved the simplicity of the old farm house. Not surprisingly it has been featured in the press, magazines and books on interiors.
Original elements were preserved whenever possible, including the nails in the ceiling that were previously used to hang up the tomatoes grown in the Masseria’s garden. The furniture was sourced locally and much of it is the work of skilled local artisans: almost everything is made in Puglia! The 4 bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as the living area and kitchen, spreading over a total of 250 square metres, have a very elegant flair. The colour palette is soft and soothing: greys, whites and sandy tones dominate the picture.
Outside the pool is sheltered by an impressive Indian fig on one side and the centuries old olive grove on the other. The vivid colours of the plants’ green, the pool’s deep blue and the red of the clay-rich Apulian soil come together effortlessly. Just at the other end of the pool is the covered veranda with the dining table and outside lounge with sofas. A beautiful spot any time of day!
To add to the list of unforgettable experiences is showering outside with a view onto the giant witnesses of history, the beautiful olive trees.
Masseria Marvicino touches all senses and allows for a true Apulian experience in comfort and style!

“It truly was the trip we had imagined. Incredible properties… Again… thank you for all of your help. We will be coming back for years to come.”

“Wir haben uns sehr, sehr wohl gefühlt in der Masseria und hatten sehr viel Freude mit dem Haus und dem Pool. Maria Lucia hat ausgezeichnet gekocht und wir haben das gute Wetter, die schönen Städte, die Landschaft und das Meer genossen. Es hat alles hervorragend geklappt und wir danken Ihnen ganz herzlich für den tollen Urlaub, den wir dank Ihnen haben konnten! Es gibt tatsächlich nichts zu verbessern!”
(Fam. Hörmann, Deutschland, Juni 2018)

“Es hat uns in der Masseria Marvicino sehr gut gefallen – das Haus hat einen unglaublichen Charme, war sehr sauber und ist mit dem Pool und dem Garten sehr schön. Wir haben die Zeit am Pool, am Esstisch oder der kleinen Lounge sehr gut geniessen können. Auch von den Tipps haben wir einige besucht – es waren so viele, dass wir in einer Woche gar nicht alles machen konnten.
Was wäre noch gut gewesen / was könnte man noch besser machen: der Grill ist super – sehr gross, viel gutes Holz, aber wir hatten kein “Grillbesteck” – so mussten wir einfach ein paar Gabeln nehmen, geht auch, aber Grillbesteck wäre noch besser.
Zuletzt möchte ich noch den Kontakt zu Ihnen loben – immer sehr schnell in den Antworten, vorrausschauend, mitdenkend,…tip top.”
