Masseria Alchimia is a charming boutique hideaway located on the coast of Puglia, with just 10 beautifully designed self-catering holiday apartments.
The apartment was designed in cooperation with local artists and designers — the moment you step in you can feel the Italian touch.
How would you describe the apartment in a nutshell?
It is a boutique apartment in the heart of Milano, which was created with the goal of being a space where guests could feel like they were temporary residents of the city and experience the hidden Milanese lifestyle.
What is the story behind the apartment, what was your inspiration to create it?
The apartment was formerly a studio of a very well-known and talented Milanese photographer. We took inspiration from the energy embedded in the spaces and Valerio Olgiati’s book “Architettura Non-Referenziale”.
How would you describe the atmosphere and the interior design of the apartment?
The architecture is a tribute to Milanese traditions, with minimal, well-finished and highly elegant interiors that reflect the cultural and life paths of the owners.
To you personally, what is so special about the apartment?
It allows you to breathe the atmosphere of a wealthy Milano. The space is infused with peace and tranquility while being in direct contact with a sober and joyful garden, which provides a filter between you and the city’s melting pot of creative energies.
Offering direct access to the apartment, the exclusive entrance leads to the heart of the house: a place of conviviality that can be intimate and perfect for a relaxing chat on the leather daybeds or provide the setting for dinner on the one-of-a-kind, art piece floral table.
Separated by a hallway, the bedroom features a typically Milanese entrance that has been transformed into a wardrobe. The hallway allows access to the bathroom, with its proportions and colours creating a little nook.
Aside from a little table where guests can work at their computers, there is high-speed Wi-Fi throughout the apartment.
We also have a small spot in the sun-drenched garden which is a beautiful place to have breakfast or enjoy a glass of wine (or a Hugo perhaps) in the evening, breathing in the atmosphere of an untouched 1920s garden. Inside we love the round table designed and made by the amazing young artist Victoria Episcopo Pignatelli di Spinazzola who lives between Salento and Rome.
The apartment is located in the Isola district of Milan. From the street you can see the Bosco Verticale, an architectural icon, there are a lot of new places such as restaurants (serving Milanese, Italian and ethnic cuisine), bars, the iconic Blue Note (for jazz lovers), art galleries and studios. But at the same time, the quarter has an incredibly peaceful atmosphere.
