What Oliver loves…
- The outdoor spaces offer manicured lawns, luscious fruit trees, swaying palms, glistening pool, elegant dining spaces and striking courtyard offering the best of Italian architecture
- One of the bedrooms has a kitchenette, making it ideal for a nanny or au pair
- Stunning location - noted as one of the “prettiest towns in Italy” (Specchia) - whilst being close to the coast, a region rich with history and cultural heritage
Masseria la Chiesetta was originally built in the seventeenth century, formerly owned by one of the region’s most pre-eminent noble families, and following an exquisite renovation now blends the very best of old and new!
This stunning home is nestled alongside the church of San Nicola, in one of Italy’s most beautiful villages, Specchia, to provide a gloriously secluded and timeless home in the heart of the Lecce province.
Guests will know they are in for something special, from the moment they come across the restored Burmese teak grand front door, set in the ancient stone original architecture.
Beautifully restored, the owners have travelled the world and adorned this glorious home with artefacts from Asia and beyond, offering a peaceful, tranquil haven of style and simplicity.
Fully executed for family living, there is a dining table for twelve, whilst the kitchen provides all the modern touches such as dishwasher, coffee machine, to make self-catering simple.
The entire villa has floor cooling system making Masseria la Chiesetta a refreshing, secluded haven during the summer months.
Contemporary comforts and glamorous touches blend alongside the original seventeenth-century features, such as underfloor heating and cooling.
Ten guests can be accommodated across five sumptuous double bedrooms, each with an ensuite, one of which has its own kitchenette (making it ideal for a nanny or au pair.)
The outdoor spaces at Masseria la Chiesetta are sublime; this dazzling, verdant haven is set within striking tranquillity, offering acres of pristine lawns as well as palm trees, pear and orange trees, and glistening private, heated pool. Fully executed for stylish outdoor living, there is an elegant pergola, and abundant space for lavish meals al fresco, including a quaint cobbled courtyard.
When illuminated at night, the courtyard imbibes a sense of the history surrounding this home, the ancient and original stonework and elegant simplicity offer a beautiful backlit and magical atmosphere surround by fragrant trees and unspoilt tranquillity.

Specchia has been voted as one of Italy’s prettiest villages! Set within the Lecce province, this is a slice of genuine and unspoilt Southern Italy.
The nearest beach, Marina di Andrano is some fourteen kilometres distance. The closest restaurants and amenities are just a few hundred yards away.
Specchia is lined with elegant, imposing palaces and historic churches, whilst in the summer, bars and restaurants spill out onto piazzas and pavements, and small independent food shops tempt passers-by with their local specialities.
Specchia is in the “heel” of Italy, in the very heart of Puglia with its wonderful soft light and far-reaching horizons; with the Ionian Sea on one side and the Adriatic on the other, there are miles upon miles of golden beaches.
The region is known for its olive oil production, as evidenced by the surrounding stretches of olive groves as well as its distinctive white-washed hill towns, centuries-old farmland and hundreds of kilometres of Mediterranean coastline.
The capital Bari is a vibrant port and university town, whilst Lecce is the ‘Florence of the south’ - known for its baroque architecture and “trulli” - stone huts with cone-shaped roofs that were originally homes; today they can be visited in their preserved form, and provide something of a fairy tale-esque experience for younger members of the group!
The Valle d’Itria, another sought-after destination in the region, is known as being one of the most beautiful areas of Puglia where the cities of Bari and Brindisi can easily be reached.

There’s a reason Puglia is the region of the moment, or rather several: the excellent food, exuberant architecture dotted in the South, the breathtaking coastline and heaps more. Puglia is much bigger than you might first expect, but you’ll get both a wonderful and varied Italian experience here.Use our travel guide as a nifty sidekick (think of us like the Robin to your Batman) to help you plan the holiday of a lifetime.
And don’t forget we’ve got a selection of villas in Puglia that will add that extra special touch to your trip.
Specchia is a charming town to spend time in with children; surrounded by olive groves, it is about twenty minutes from the southern beaches. This is an ideals spot for family friendly leisurely lunches and a stroll down the promenade in the cooler evening air.
Puglia, the “heel” of Italy, is a family friendly destination; whether it be hilltop or coastal towns, long sandy beaches with clear waters and the beautiful coastline, as well as the sumptuous rustic local cuisine, children will be welcome!
Southern Italians are very family-minded, and highchairs and children’s cutlery will be provided in most restaurants, whilst the piazzas in the evening are full of youngsters roaming and playing together whilst their parents watch on from courtyard al fresco restaurants.
For days out, just a short trip from Bari, families can take advantage of the zoo safari, Fasanolandia. Children will be thrilled to be so close to big cats roaming free, with giraffes bending down to peer into the car windows and monkeys jumping on the bonnet.
For scuba diving and snorkelling, there are multiple water sports centres, including Scuba Diving di Levanto Stefano and Orca Diving. Underwater exploration is so accessible in the calm, warm seas of southern Italy.
