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 Brindisi area

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).

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.

Beautiful place !

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks in August - 4 adults and 4 kids. The house is beautiful, the charm of the old trulli and all the conveniences of the modern equipments (air conditioning which was more than welcome as it was really a hot summer, washing machine, dishwasher) We each had our own bedroom and bathroom and spent hours in the swimming pool. Marco was a great host and always available for questions and advices. Marco refurbished the house with a wonderful taste.

Très bel endroit maison magnifique séjour idéal

  • 4 of 5

Une semaine idyllique en famille: chaque couple avait sa propre chambre et sa salle de bain. Seul souci: pas de lit pour un enfant de 6 ans.

Déco de la maison très belle.

La maison ( trullis traditionnels réaménagés avec beaucoup de goût ). L'environnement ( oliviers à perte de vue et murets de pierres Sèches) est superbe et la localisation par rapports aux lieux touristiques incontournables des Pouilles est idéale.

Le propriétaire Marco est tout prêt à aider en cas de souci ou de simple conseil.

Excellent séjour dans une habitation rafinée entourée d'oliviers et d'aloès.

  • 5 of 5

Pour des citadins à la recherche de calme et d'une expérience "nature", cette habitation est idéale. Construite dans le style traditionnel des Trullis, elle jouit d'un environnement remarquable au milieu des oliviers et des figuiers. Décorée avec raffinement, son plan est parfait, et la lumière circule remarquablement sans pour autant manquer de fraicheur. Belle piscine fraîche à souhait quand il fait bien chaud. Les hôtes sont charmants. Petit bémol : la literie est un peu souple pour les amateurs de matelas fermes. Très bon état général. Un grand merci au propriétaire d'avoir conçu un lieu aussi agréable et ressourçant à 1h à peine de l'aéroport de Brindisi, lui-même à 2h30 de Paris par EasyJet. Commerces à 10 minutes en voiture.

Sopra ogni aspettativa

  • 5 of 5

Inizierei con il dire che siamo stati accolti con grande cortesia e disponibilità, la signora Stefania ha provveduto ad illustrarci la villa fornendoci le primarie necessità.

La villa risulta essere estremamente curata nei dettagli rispettando l'originalità dei Trulli.

Le stanze arredate con gusto e con ogni confort.

La pulizia impeccabile.

La piscina molto suggestiva circondata da pietre locali.

Tutta la struttura è veramente immersa in un parco di ulivi.

La pace e il silenzio regnano sovrani.

La posizione rimane comunque strategica perche nell'arco di Max 40 minuti si raggiungono mete turistiche molto ambite, Ostuni, Alberobello, Polignano a Mare e la Baia di Torre Guaceto riserva naturale, con un mare da togliere il fiato.

Detto ciò grazie alla signora Stefania grazie al signor Cristofori.
