An introduction to Masseria Dagilupi

What was the inspiration behind Masseria Dagilupi and how did it all start?

We’re from Strasbourg but my father is part Italian, so I was always drawn to the country and we’d been to Puglia a few times on vacation. It was only two hours by plane but it felt like another world, with strong values around family, sharing and hospitality that I think are similar to Northern France.

I feel like we all live three lives - our childhood, then our working lives while raising children (which can be very stressful), then our retirement years where we get to live the way we really want and appreciate the rest of our life. Following a change in my husband’s work, we knew that we wanted to escape the pressures of the big city and embark on a new opportunity.

When we bought the old farmhouse, it had no electricity or running water and the restoration was not easy. Our initial intention was to create more rooms but we had to adapt to the history of the building. In the end, we decided that space = luxury, so we created fewer rooms (suites really) for guests to spread out. When you travel, you want to have a spacious room with flair, which is what we tried to achieve.

How would you describe the atmosphere at Masseria Dagilupi?

It’s peaceful, relaxing and quiet — all you can hear are the crickets chirping! The property is set in the middle of an olive grove, so you don’t hear any noise from the road or other people. We’re positioned in a very agricultural area and you have to follow a small road through the olive trees before the building suddenly appears. It’s somewhat of a hidden gem.

We’ve tried to retain as much of the old stone walls as possible but have given the house a contemporary flair, with a white, minimalistic design.

Masseria Dagilupi rooms & rates

Masseria Dagilupi is set amidst four and a half acres of olive trees, which create a special feeling that makes the property different from other places. The old farmhouse has been converted into three suites - two on the ground floor and one on the first floor with a terrace overlooking Ostuni. This is the master suite while the two ground-floor suites are slightly smaller.

The ground floor also features a kitchen and breakfast room, as well as a wine bar and an additional bathroom. Outdoors is a courtyard framed by a stone wall that’s typical of Puglia and there’s a wood-fired oven here for making focaccia.

Next year we will be adding two additional rooms to the property and a swimming pool.

  • Deluxe Room Limoni for 2 people / 35 m²
    150 / night
    • 1 Double bedroom
    • 1 Shower room (ensuite)

    A jewel of white stone with vaulted ceiling that overlooks the courtyard of the Masseria and singularized by a lemon tree that gives the evening air a typical Mediterranean fragrance. This room is located on the ground floor with direct access to the olive grove.

  • Garden Suite Ulivo for 2 people / 50 m²
    190 / night
    • 1 Double bedroom
    • 1 Shower room (ensuite)
    • 1 Living room

    A secular olive tree offers its shade to the terrace of this suite of 50 sqm with direct access to the olive grove. In the past, this piece communicated with the mill through a hatch through which the barely pressed oil was transported. The stables were metamorphosed into a large open shower, a bathroom and a dressing room. The 1-meter thick stone walls protect this room from the summer sun’s ardors.

  • Terrace Suite Ostuni for 2 people / 70 m²

    • 1 Double bedroom
    • 1 Bathroom (ensuite)
    • 1 Living room

    Located on the first floor of the Masseria, this suite of 70 sqm has a private terrace of 25 sqm that offers an exceptional view of the expanse of secular olive trees and the foothills of Ostuni, white during the day, rosé at sunset and shining of thousand fires at night.

    This suite was once a living room and storage place where each niche allowed families to conserve their oil. The niches have been preserved to restore the typical atmosphere of an Apulian Masseria.

    The 20 sqm bathroom with double shower, bathtub and double washbasin offers a view of the Adriatic Sea and the olive trees.

Things to do in Puglia & Ostuni

  • Art / Culture
  • Shopping / Markets
  • Massages / Treatments
  • Yoga classes
  • Golf
  • Hiking

Highlights are the “white city” of Ostuni, which has retained an old-fashioned atmosphere, as well as Locorotondo that can be reached in just 40 minutes. I’d also recommend Lecce for its Baroque architecture and if you continue to the far south of Puglia, you’ll arrive in the Salento region, which is completely different. We’re also not far from Bari and Matera, which has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

There are also some beautiful beaches in the region. One of our favourites is just 10 minutes’ drive from the property and quite wild — you won’t find sunbeds or beach umbrellas here. The water is incredibly clear and it attracts more of a local crowd, rather than tourists. A little further away and there are plenty of beaches with sun loungers if that’s what you prefer.

The location of Masseria Dagilupi

We’re just two kilometres from Ostuni and five kilometres from the sea, with Lecce around 15 minutes’ drive from the property. The airport is 20 minutes away and Bari can be reached in around an hour. We fell in love with the area because of its proximity to Ostuni and the trees, which are among the biggest and oldest in Puglia.

When is the best time to visit Puglia?

May and June are both wonderful times to visit, as are September and October as it’s still warm enough to swim and there are far fewer people. July and August can be quite crowded in Puglia and it’s a completely different atmosphere. If you visit in November, you’ll probably still experience some nice weather and (unlike many properties in Puglia) we stay open in December, with heated floors and a fireplace in one of the rooms to keep guests warm. We are only closed in January and February but open the rest of the year.
