Space 2,690 sq. ft.
Property type villa

About the property

Our Masseria is surrounded by 20.000 square meters of private land, guaranteeing therefore privacy and quiet and it is tastefully decorated, with a large Swimming Pool, near to many beaches and beautiful and tipical little villages as Ostuni, full of charming shops, restorants and night life.

Ideal for three couples or a family group.

Each of the bedrooms has its own distinctive character and it's own large private bathroom with shower.

The kitchen is well equipped with hi-spec appliances (oven, fridge-freezer, dishwasher, washing machine).

In the living room there is a large dining table comfortably seating 8 persons.

In front of the living room there is a covered terrace with a round table seating 6 people.

The living room, kitchen and master bedroom, all have large glass doors.

The 16m x 4m private swimming pool is fringed by the olive grove and set in a large terrace with comfortable sun loungers and deck chairs.

There is also a large barbecue with wheels.

Space, privacy and tranquility can be enjoyed in secluded areas around the house, within the surrounding olive grove, terraced areas.

During your stay, please help yourself to the plentiful figs, pears and almonds when in season.

Puglia's whitewashed ancient towns rising from acres of silver olive groves, to some make it look more like Greece or even Spain than other parts of Italy. Here you can have an authentic experience of southern Italy. Towns and villages stud this landscape, often upon rocky outcrops. Among the most striking and worth a visit, are nearby Ostuni, Cisternino, Locorotondo, Alberobello, Martina Franca and Ceglie Messapica, all have beautiful old cathedrals, churches and ancient houses and many music or food festival in season.


For swimming and sunbathing you are spoilt for choice with two coastlines nearby, the Ionian and Adriatic, both with crystal clear water and sandy beaches.

The closest and one of the best is Torre Guaceto, a nature reserve, with it's sweeping bay of pale, fine sand and backed by beautiful sand dunes and pine forest.

Many beaches have facilities where you can rent sun beds and umbrellas, buy drinks and delicious food. Try the laid back White Beach Club at Monticelli.

Horse riding and cycling can be arranged – through olive groves, woodland and sand dunes.

Important note to parents: The swimming pool and the staircase to the roof are left open with no barrier or fence, so please be vigilant and look after your children.

About Marco Cristofori

I'm builder and interior decorator. My city-home is Bologna but I like Puglia very much because is culture rich, hospitable and famous for the quality of its food. In the photo I'm with my daughter Diana who does not live with me.

Marco Cristofori purchased this villa in 2007

Why Marco Cristofori chose Ostuni

In the serenity of a secular olive grove, our Masseria Zumpicchio has been built around 4 ancient “Trulli”, using the traditional materials of the zone and respecting the local style, but adding all the modern comforts.

The living room with fireplace looks out onto the large Swimming Pool, surrounded by a stone terrace of 40 square meters, and there is an internal dining area and an external one, an open Veranda covered from the shed, offering therefore the possibility to have supper inside or in the coolness of the open space. The kitchen is well equipped (oven and dishwashers), there is an annexed laundry and a graceful bath with washbasin, wc and bidet. In the living room you have a modern television and in all the house you have WIFI, and the Masseria got 20.000 square meters of private land with olive and fruit trees, granting the most absolute privacy and tranquility. The main room with double bed, the “Canopy Room”, has been obtained restoring the biggest Trullo, and has its independent exit and en suite bathroom, wide and with a great angular shower that can be used also like bath tub. The second room with annexed bath is occupied by the owners. Within a short distance from the villa and on the terrace that surrounds the swimming pool, there is one independent construction, annexed to an existing old little trullo, the “Trullino Room”, hosting a pleasant room with a double bed with canopy and a bathroom complete of shower. The Villa is located in Itria Valley, 10 km from the town of Ostuni, just 40 minutes from Brindisi airport and 1 hour drive from Bari. The loca

What makes this villa unique

Please note: the rate that comes out automatically is for the main house only (6 persons).

Lovely house

  • 5 of 5

A lovely house with a pool situated amongst olive trees. We were here for a week and although peaceful and quiet we were interrupted almost every day by the owner visiting for one reason or another, the pool cleaner and on two occassions delivery of water by a truck!! The house is lovely and cool and the kitchen is well equipped. There is seating for al fresco dining which we took full advantage of including cooking on the bbq. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Great place to relax and to visit Puglia

  • 5 of 5

We were there with our two kids (1y and 2.5y) and we had a great stay at Marco's house.

Marco was very welcoming and helped us on the first evening with our dinner. He was always not very far to help during our stay. He had kindly bought all the equipment we needed for our kids. He sent us back by mail something we had forgotten.

House is beautifully furnished with antiques; this is so much nicer than what you would expect in rented houses.

The inside of the house (bedrooms, bathrooms, dining room and living room) is big, well decorated and very comfortable. Lots of light throughout the place which is great (and unexpected) for a truli. Only the kitchen could be a bit bigger with more equipment.

Pool area is very nice, surrounded by Olive trees, shaded and sunny at the same time. You may find the stone steps not ideal for young children but we had no issue.

Nice outside dining area.

Ultra quiet place. Perfect for relaxing.

It's perfectly in the middle of 3-4 very nice villages. And convenient location to visit Puglia.

A perfect place for a lovely secluded holiday

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at this villa. The trulli conversion is spacious, clean and well furnished and equipped, and surrounded by olive trees as far as the eye could see; a perfect place for a lovely secluded holiday. A car is essential but the villa is within easy driving distance (7-10 km) of four historic towns with shops and many good restaurants. There is a small supermarket a few kilometres away. The owner, Marco, is friendly and helpful and lives unobtrusively nearby. He gave us several gifts of produce to make us feel welcome.

nous et la famille "gatto" dans la maison de Marco

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé des vacances inoubliables dans ce charmant trulli au milieu d'une nature magnifique peuplée d'oliviers, de noyers, d'amandiers... et d'une charmante famille de chats : maman chat et 3 chatons que nous avons vu grandir sur le toit du trulli, puis sortir dans la nature pour jouer dans les arbres. Nous n'oublierons pas cet endroit très dépaysant qui se prête merveilleusement bien à ceux qui ont besoin de repos et de calme. Le trulli est bien situé pour visiter la région sans faire trop de kilomètres. Un grand merci à Marco pour sa gentillesse et son excellent accueil.

Wenn Träume wahr werden.........

Alles war perfekt geregelt. Wir wurden von Marco(Besitzer) halbwegs im Empfang genommen und er hat uns zur Anwesen geführt und alles gezeigt. Früchte, verschiedene Getränke im Kühlschrank und einen Blumenstrauss standen zur WELCOME bereit. Mann fühlt sich HERZLICH wilkommen. DANKE Marco
