Villa Pizzorusso is a historic fortified farm estate, masseria, located in the southern italian region of Puglia, the heel of the boot. The estate is situated next to the Via Appia Antica, the old Appian Way, which connected Rome to Brindisi, and set amidst olive groves, on 15 acres of cultivated wheat fields. Just five minutes from the towns of Mesagne and Latiano. Both towns have wine and olive oil coops, butchers, bakeries, cheese shops with mozzarella and ricotta made on the premises daily, local fruit and vegetable vendors, open air markets, cafes, restaurants. Villa Pizzorusso had been abandoned for over 50 years, when its restoration began around 2005 by its current owners, a Puglia native and an American. Its historical integrity has been preserved and integrated with modern design elements and amenities. The result is a harmonious blend of elegance and history. The oldest sections of Pizzorusso date to the 1500s and an owner’s wing was added in the early 1800s with Moorish and neo-classic design elements including the five cupolas, floor tile work, frescoed ceilings, and grand arched entry and windows. These elements give Villa Pizzorusso its current character. Villa Pizzorusso is central to many of Puglia’s top destinations. Within an hour of the stunning baroque city of Lecce; the white “Greek” city of Ostuni; Martina Franca, the trulli of Alberobello; the beautiful seaside city of Otranto with its distinctive cathedral, the undergound caves of Castellana Grotte; beaches on both the Adriatic and Ionian Seas.
