Three hectares of gardens surround authentic Masseria Alchimia in Puglia, now available to rent through Welcome Beyond, a website promoting only the most extraordinary vacation homes and boutique hotels worldwide. Whenever owner Caroline used to feel lonely in her house, she invited friends who filled the empty rooms with laughter. This gave her the inspiration to open Masseria Alchimia, an apartment house for style-conscious travelers.
Masseria Alchimia is located directly between the airports of Bari and Brindisi in the middle of a beautiful rural landscape yet is close to the beach. Back in the 17th century, the Masseria was owned by nuns who taught young girls good manners. Today Caroline has transformed it into a special place to stay: “This is a very personal house, from the style and the way I run it, so if someone sees that, what the spirit of the house is, it means they have the same type of spirit,” she describes.
Masseria Alchimia offers ten rooms sleeping up to 20 people. Two of them are suites and can be divided into separate rooms: Whereas the Romantic suite is very private and offers breath-taking sea views, the Deluxe Suite impresses with its two terraces which include a small plunge pool in a rock. All of the rooms have a kitchenette and are equipped to be self-catering. They also have either a private outdoor patio or a big sun terrace. The interiors provide a unique mix of colorful furniture – some contemporary, some vintage – and changing art works on the walls. “I also have two neighbors who produce and sell food. They offer homemade breads, marmalades, olive oil, fruit, vegetables and cheeses. Many guests walk over to them to purchase food to prepare in their little kitchens,” Caroline states.
Since Caroline lives at Masseria Alchimia herself, she is always happy to share must-sees, recommend restaurants, book tables, organize babysitters or direct guests to the beach club. Whether it is the 7 summer months or the delicious food, Puglia is where people are always friendly. Roman excavations are close by and a 5 minutes’ walk takes guests to the beach. With its unique atmosphere, Masseria Alchimia not only attracts many architects and photographers but also anyone seeking a relaxing and indulging vacation.
