Welcome to Masseria
The property lies on a wide plain between the Murge hills (also known as ‘Serre’), and the sixteenth-century Torre Ovo that overlooks an inlet and the remains of an ancient small Greek harbour on the Ionian sea. Recently renovated, Masseria Pepe shows the true essence of a building typical of the Ionian manor houses built in the western part of the territory of Taranto. Far only 1 km from the nearest sunny beaches and from the crystal sea, it is the ideal place for a relaxed stay. It consists of two separate parts: one ‘palazziata’ and another ‘terragna’, with the old courtyards magnificently renovated and destined to accommodate guests. Masseria Pepe offers seven comfortable and refined apartments, and a variety of scents and the food specialities of Puglia. The property is completely surrounded by the wonderful Puglia countryside that is rich in centuries-old olive trees and Primitivo di Manduria vineyards, being this area the most suitable mainly for the cultivation of this grape variety. The ‘trulli’ – namely, the typical round-shaped houses made of stone – are also very evocative. Masseria Pepe is a place full of history; it belonged to an eminent member of the local culture, Gianleonardo Marugj, and is now property of his descendants, the Chimientis. You will spend a relaxed stay at Masseria Pepe in contact with nature and the bluest sea that is less than 3 minutes by car. The property’s apartments - 7 in total, obtained from the original spaces of the old building - all have bathroom and kitchenette.
