Masseria Petrarolo


Monopoli, Puglia | 8 + 1 Bedrooms | 9 Bathrooms | 16 + 2 Guests


€1,925 - €5,360 /night


Dating back to the 17th-century, this beautifully restored masseria sits in over 50 hectares of ancient olive groves and lavender fields. What was once a historic fortified farmhouse is now a luxury retreat finished to the highest standard. The picturesque gardens surrounding the home are complemented by two swimming pools, one of which appears to blend perfectly into the Adriatic Sea beyond. The various terraces and the historic chapel, maintained in all its glory, offer moments of contemplation and calm.

With an interior curated by top London interior designers, Masseria Petrarolo seamlessly pairs authentic features and rustic touches with superb modern finishes, allowing guests to truly immerse themselves in the history of the region. Vaulted ceilings and open fireplaces characterise the refined living areas and the grand Trajan dining room, with seating for up to 20, features glorious exposed brick and wooden beams. Impeccable quality is carried throughout each of the nine ensuite bedrooms, some of which boast open-air baths and showers.

Masseria Petrarolo can be rented alongside the nearby Trullo Petrarolo to accommodate up to 24 guests and for the more adventurous, the estate can also be offered with the on-site Airstream which sits a short drive from the masseria.
