Our verdict: “Traditional trulli married to a thoroughly modernist masseria section with great pool, Masseria Settarte provides a great holiday home for a medium sized group or a large family close to Cisternino”.
Set on the gentle slope of a beautiful unspoiled valley surrounded by ancient olive trees and vineyards, Masseria Settarte although being conveniently situated only 5 minutes drive from the picturesque town of Cisternino offers a haven of quietude and tranquility with enchanting views over its 17,000 sq M of land. Comprising a ten coned trullo built more than 200 years ago and the adjoining square white building, the roof terrace offers 360 degree views over the surrounding countryside.
Beautifully restored by Daniele Corsaro a successful young Italian architect, it has views over the central piazza and salt water pool and double pergola offering comfortable shaded seating beside the kitchen garden. The interior combines the classic and traditional with modern and elegant style. The trulli hark back to an older era but with all modern conveniences, while the modern section gives much light and space.
