Villa Pizzorusso has been a true restoration of love by its American/Italian owners and every detail has been thought of to create an atmospheric yet highly luxurious home. One enters into Villa Pizzorusso through the grand arched entry portal and beyond to the barrel-vaulted foyer with large fireplace and a cantina/wine cellar that was discovered during renovation and is accessible through a trap door in the floor.
The vast salon is the most glorious room – once the former stables the salone is the main indoor living space, with an open kitchen, dining table for 16, and living area with a large couch and comfortable chairs around the fireplace. A part of an old olive press that was found in this room has been incorporated as a decorative element as the mantle over the fireplace. Three large French doors flood this room with light and connect it with the farmland surrounding the villa.
Villa Pizzorusso is a historic “masseria” located in the heart of Puglia within easy reach of Lecce, the Ionian and Adriatic coastlines and the famous white villages. This impressive property is situated on 15 acres in the midst of olive groves and five minutes from the town of Mesagne with medieval castle, butchers, bakers, cafes and restaurants.
