A farmhouse turned luxury vacation rental, Masseria Petrarolo in Puglia combines rustic warmth with elegance. Nine bedrooms in the villa and pool house are set in olive and citrus groves.
How would you describe Masseria del Vigneto in a nutshell?
It’s a beautifully restored farmhouse with outbuildings set in the stunningly unspoiled Canale Di Pirro. Guests at Masseria del Vigneto can enjoy a two-hectare private garden with a pool and tennis court, plus over 30 hectares of vineyards, pastureland and wooded hills.
What is the story behind Masseria del Vigneto, what was your inspiration to create it?
I knew about the masseria from visiting the area for over 10 years. Sitting in a prominent position in the valley and suffering from neglect, I knew it could be a stunning renovation project.
How would you describe the atmosphere and the interior design of Masseria del Vigneto?
The farmhouse and outbuildings have all been completely and lovingly restored by Puglian craftsmen. The interiors have been designed to an incredibly high standard by my long-time collaborators — Anthony Filmer of Tully Filmer and James Waterworth of Thurstan Design.
To you personally, what is so special about Masseria del Vigneto?
The history of the building, its stunning location and the property’s access to nature (plus all of the amenities) make this a very special place to holiday.
What do you particularly like about this part of Puglia
The colours and contours of the Valley D’Itria are stunning. Horses and cows roam in its green pastures bordered by stone walls and Mediterranean oaks. It’s a landscape of pretty architecture, beautiful nature and charming local culture.
