Estate of the 14th century surrounded by a high stonewall with chapel, pergola, olive- orange-lemon and figtrees, pomegranates ... in the heart of the mythical Negroamaro. Passing two gates you are reaching a large scale courtyard with historical buildings and wonderful gardens.

The space
Loft-like and light-flooded apartment (approx. 85m2) with terrace and its own staircase available on the upper floor. This consists of 1 bedroom (with double bed), 1 bathroom and an open kitchen with baroque fireplace and adjoining living/dining area (cross vaulted ceilings) with pull-out sofa, suitable for another 2 guests.

In the courtyard other two bathrooms, washing machine and barbecue.

High cross-ceilings and vaults. Please have a look under the following advertisement "Estate (Masseria) - Flat with 2 sleeping-rooms". You'll find it also on this platform.
P.S.2
With both apartments the offer of the Masseria is extended (space for approx. 10 persons), ideal for groups of families and/or friends. Please have a look under the following advertisement on this platform: "Estate (Masseria) - with 2 spacious apartments".

Guest access
Beside the Loft Apartment in the first floor (85qm) all our guests have access to the whole grounds in between the enclosure, which means: courtyard, two bathrooms in the outbuildings, pergola, olive-/orangegarden and all the other gardens including fruits of the season as well as herb garden. The accessible area has about 6000qm.

Other things to note
When booking, our guests have the entire area to themselves! Even if, as in this case, you occupy only one of two existing apartments, the second apartment will not be assigned during your stay. Only Giovanni visits the gardens with his many plants and trees every now and then after prior appointment.

Als ich im Jahre 2003 das erste Mal in diese Gegend gekommen bin war ich gleich so begeistert, dass ich mir hier eine Arbeit gesucht habe. Ich liebe historische Gemäuer und so hat sich ergeben, dass ich gemeinsam mit Giovanni seinen wunderschönen Gutshof (Masseria) in Guagnano herrichten konnte und kümmere mich seit der Fertigstellung von Österreich aus um dessen Vermietung, während Giovanni mit seiner Familie die Gäste vor Ort betreut. Durch Zufall bin ich in dieser Zeit auf ein kleines, leerstehendes kleines Haus in Gagliano del Capo gestossen. Ich hatte ursprünglich nicht die Absicht und auch nicht die Mittel ein Haus zu kaufen, aber ich wusste sofort, dass dies "mein" Haus war und habe alle Hebel in Bewegung gesetzt mir diesen Traum zu erfüllen. Ich war begeistert von den hohen Räumen mit Kreuzgewölben, dem alten Mosaikboden, dem grandiosen Ausblick von der Dachebene, dem Eingebundensein in einen historischen Ort und der Möglichkeit, das Meer zu Fuss erreichen zu können… Weiters: dem Gefühl, am Ende der Welt zu sein und doch die Möglichkeit zu haben, alles für den täglichen Bedarf bekommen zu können, ohne dass man ein Auto benützen muß, wie es überhaupt auch möglich ist, hier insgesamt ohne Auto leben zu können, denn Gagliano ist öffentlich gut angebunden. Und dann liebe und schätze ich in dieser Gegend die freundliche Art der Menschen und das angenehme Gefühl so selbstverständlich angenommen zu sein. Seit einigen Jahren stelle ich das Haus Gästen zur Verfügung, die all diese Dinge ähnlich schätzen wie ich und hier ihren Urlaub oder auch eine Auszeit verbringen möchten. Meine Hausbetreuerin Marilena sorgt in meiner Abwesenheit dafür, dass alle meine Gäste gut aufgehoben sind. Sie wohnt in der Nähe und ist in sämtlichen Belangen ansprechbar. Ich persönlich bin gut und gerne über Telefon oder Email erreichbar. Wir heißen Sie Alle herzlich willkommen, ob auf dem großzügigen und mitten in der Weingegend von Apulien liegenden Gutshof von Giovanni in Guagnano oder in meinem kleinen Haus mit Meerblick in Gagliano del Capo! ------------------------------------------------- Quando sono arrivata la prima volta qui nel Salento, nel 2003, sono stata cosi entusiasta che ho cercato un lavoro qui. Amo posti storici e ruderi e cosi andava che potevo aiutare a Giovanni di ristrutturare la sua bellissima Masseria a Guagnano. Dopo aver completato i lavori e tornata a Vienna mi occupo anche del affitto mentre Giovanni con la sua famiglia si occupa degli ospiti sul posto. In questo periodo per caso ho trovato una piccola casa non abitata a Gagliano del Capo. Ne era la mia intenzione di comprare una casa ne avevo i mezzi di poterlo fare ma sapevo subito che questa era la „mia“ casa e ho fatto di tutto per poter realizzare questo sogno. Sono stata entusiasta dalle stanze alte con le volte a Stella, dal pavimento con il mosaico originario, dalla vista magnifica dal tetto, dal coinvolgimento in un luogo storico e della posssibilità di poter scendere al mare a piedi.... Inoltre: dal sentimento di stare alla fine del mondo pur avendo la possibilitá di trovare tutto il necessario per la vita quotidiana senza dover prendere una macchina, com’è possibile affatto di poter stare qui in tutto senza macchina, siccome Gagliano è collegato bene con i mezzi pubblici. Poi amo e apprezzo nel Salento in gegnere la gentilezza degli uomini e il piacevole sentimento di essere accettato cosi naturale. Siccome dopo la ristrutturazione della mia casa posso scendere a Gagliano solo 1-2 volte al anno la metto a disposizione a degli ospiti che magari apprezzano come me tutte queste cose e decidono di trascorrere qui le loro vancanze oppure un time out. Marilena, la mia governante di casa, si occupa degli miei ospiti sul posto. Abita molto vicino e nella mia assenza è abbordabile in tutti gli interessi. Noi diamo il benvenuto a Tutti, che sulla grandiosa Masseria di Giovanni nel cuore del Negroamaro a Guagnano, o nella mia piccola casa con vista mare a Gagliano del Capo! --------------------------------------------- When I came the first time in the Salento in 2003 I was so enthusiastic that I decided to look for a job here. I love historic places and ruins and so it happend that I could assist Giovanni to renovate his wonderful estate (Masseria) a Guagnano and since the completion I also handle the renting from Vienna while Giovanni and his family is looking after his guests on-location. In this time by coincidence I found a little unoccupied house in Gagliano del Capo. Originally I did not have the intention nor the resources to buy a house, but I immediatly knew that this was „my“ house: I moved heaven and earth to realize this dream. I was fascinated because of the high rooms with cross ceilings, the ancient mosaic floor, the incredible view from the roof level, of being integrated in a historic place and the possibility to reach the seaside on foot... Further: the feeling to be at the end of the world but to have the possibility to get everything for the daily needs without the need of a car how it even is possible to live here without a car, because Gagliano is quite well connected to all means of public transport. Then I love and appreciate in the Salento on the whole the friendly manner of the people and the pleasant feeling to be accepted so naturally. But after the renovation of the house I only could stay here once or twice a year because of professional reasons. That’s why I decided some years ago to offer it to people who appreciate all the things similar like me and who want to spend their holidays here or just want to take some time out. My cartaker Marilena will make sure that all my guests are well cared. She lives nearby and will be open for conversation in all matters. We look forward to welcome you All, whether in the generous Masseria of Giovanni in the heart of the Negroamaro in Guagnano or in my little ancient house with seaview in Gagliano del Capo!
