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 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. 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.
The farm owns almost 30 hectares of land planted with centuries-old olive trees (that produce extra virgin oil), vegetables, durum wheat and particularly kamut.
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 you can also reach on foot or by bike (available at the Masseria) in less than 10 minutes. The property’s apartments – 7 in total, obtained from the original spaces of the old building – all have two bathrooms, kitchenette, a private garden and pool. There are almost 40 beds in total.
The most exciting show? That of nature with its unforgettable dawns and sunsets.
