Nestled within the peaceful Canale Di Pirro, Masseria Pistola enjoys panoramic views of a valley of vineyards. The property is a charmingly restored masseria, or farmhouse, dating back just under 300 years with many original features still intact. Each of the ten en-suite bedrooms showcase different historical characteristics, from conical trulli ceilings typical to Alberobello to the cumsera or gable-roofed arches of the main farmhouse. Stunning ceramic roll top and carved stone bathtubs are found throughout the property, some tucked in private outdoor terraces. Three kitchens, spacious living areas and the grand Mangatore dining room, with seating for up to 20, offer ample space for guests to gather.
Outside, multiple stone courtyards, private gardens and an expansive pool deck make for magical al fresco experiences throughout your stay. An additional plunge pool is perfectly positioned beside the two garden suites and the home sits adjacent to the estate’s Giardini Pistola, featuring four hectares of glorious terraced gardens.
