VILLAS TO RENT

Masseria Bougainville

A contemporary Apulian country house

Masseria Bougainville is more than a villa. This contemporary Apulian country house is a tranquil oasis, nestled in over two hectares of ancient olive groves, overlooking the Puglian countryside. 

Only 15 minutes from Salento, it is ideally located to discover and delight in an authentic Puglian experience, from the coastal scenic routes and paradisiacal beaches, delicious food, red Primitivo wine, to Italy’s largest production of the finest extra virgin olive oil.

Masseria Bougainville was completely restyled under the supervision of Apulian Architect Raffaele Centonze, and crafted by master artisans using the local Pietra Leccese. The result is an astounding and unique masterpiece of arches with soaring vaulted ceilings and massive arched windows

As you enter the main gate of Bougainville, you are instantly immersed in the estate’s private, secluded and luxurious world through a vast courtyard, which is the pulsing heart of the Masseria.

The main entrance boasts an impressive metal and glass arcade, and a sizable corridor that connects the day and night quarters. The Masseria is composed of the main building and a separate guest unit in the traditional ‘pajara’ style, with a total of 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, accommodating 10 guests.
