This is a magical place - a grand 17th century manor house (masseria) surrounded by a cluster of beautiful round stone buildings with cone shaped roofs (trulli), all located on a gentle hilltop overlooking the surrounding countryside like a sentinel for the splendid Itria valley. Local craftsmen have restored the buildings to their original beauty, using original plasterwork, fittings, and materials.
In the masseria, there are two good size double bedrooms on the ground floor (one with double bed, one with two bed singles). Both rooms have access to a private sitting room, a kitchen/breakfast room, and a bathroom with bath. Upstairs on the first floor are three double bedrooms (one with double bed and two with single beds). The three bedrooms have access to a large sitting room with high ceilings, a galley kitchen, and a bathroom with shower.
Additional accommodation is available in the cluster of trulli cottages that have been skillfully converted into comfortable apartments, each with its own private garden area and kitchen. The private grounds are mostly meadow surrounded by a dry stone retaining wall. There is also lovely swimming pool (12x5m) and a spa hot tub for up to 6 people.
This beautiful apartment is on the ground floor of the manor house. Bedroom 1 has a large double bed and would suit a couple or a single person. Good size separate bathroom (bath with shower) is shared with bedroom 2. This apartment also has a tranquil, private garden with views of the grounds. There is a large kitchen and spacious sitting room.
Primo Nobile is a large apartment in the first floor comprising a long living room with vaulted ceilings and stone balconies, a bathroom with shower/WC and an additional cloakroom with WC. There is also a kitchen. Bedroom 1 is a large room two single beds which can also be made into a double. With lovely views, this is a good room to share with a friend, or share with a friendly solo traveler.
This traditional group of Trulli has 2 bedrooms, each with 2 single beds. There is a kitchen-living space and a bathroom with shower. Private garden with table and chairs.
In addition to first class yoga tuition and mouth-watering cuisine, you can book a healthy cycling or walking excursion, depending on the season.
Halfway between Locorotondo and Martina Franca, the venue lies in the heart of Puglia, an area which is not only the home of baroque, but also one of the most fertile regions of Italy, producing more olive oil than the rest of the country combined, most of its fish, 80% of Europe’s pasta, and more wine than the whole of Germany.
Here in the deep, south-east of Italy, nature and history are powerful influences. The locals still wink cheekily at authority, and the relaxed and communal way of life is in harmony with the sunny dry climate. There remains a deep rooted and historic suspicion of rule from afar, engendering a relaxed atmosphere perfect for ‘getting away from it all’.
The health giving benefits of a Mediterranean diet are well known, and at Kaliyoga we love the flavors of hearty Italian cooking. We buy fresh organic ingredients every day from the local markets, offering you a choice of fine vegetarian home-cooked delicious cuisine three meals per day. If you prefer to avoid animal protein, we are very happy to create vegan variations. We can also adapt recipes to most dietary needs.
