OPPORTUNITY! The historical Masseria San Giuseppe is for sale. It was purchased some time ago in a state of ruin and has been partly restored. Regional grants was then approved for the entire restoration and the masseria was granted a commercial licence to be developed into an exclusive boutique hotel with anything from 8 to 18 bedrooms ensuite. This impressive masseria is now for sale as the owner has developed extensive business overseas.
New high walls over 450 meters in length have been built and the inside area is approximately 7,000 sq m. There are two entrances and passing through the olive grown to reach the main, eastern entrance.
Inside the wall is the traditional two story masseria building with sea view from the top. There are two separate wings, currently as separate 1-2 bedroom apartments and in addition a third apartment on the ground floor. The old farm rooms in the ground floor- for animals, storage and masseria oil and farm production are suitable for conversion to residential units. Two tower-like buildings represent the old days with falconry and planned to be converted to smart two residential units of two bedrooms ensuite each. All project plans would be made available to the purchaser which means a great saving in time and cost as relatively easy to reactivate and adopt the plans to the new owner’s needs.
The floor are on the ground floor is 632 sq. m and on the first floor 100 sq m, totaling 732 sq. m. In addition, there are two underground rooms of about 45 sq. m with access just outside the east entrance.
The Masseria is valued at 1,25 million, including land with olive grove of 5 hectares, which is the asking price for this unique property.LIFESTYLE AND WHAT DO DO IN THE AREA

Nearby Torre Guaceto is a nature reserve of 22.000 sq. km and Serranova 4 minutes away only is the center of the reserve. Torre Guaceto offers a wonderful light and noise pollution free environment. Still within ten minutes you can be in the lively seaside resorts of Torre Santa Sabina and Specchiolla. The beaches are ideal family places. Shallow coves and protected areas make the visit to the beach a pleasure. There are also many beach clubs and water sports are offered, including kite surfing. The beaches are deserted in the winter and very rarely busy at other times than July and August, the main holiday months.The ancient forest of olive trees surrounding Serranova are magnificent and it’s fantastic to cycle or drive through.
Unlike most other areas of Apulia, Serranova and Torre Guaceto have mainly flat land. There is one main dual carriageway down the coast and the rest of the roads have been unchanged for hundreds of years.
The olives are harvested in December to February and are handpicked to ensure they produce the best grade of extra virgin olive oil.
Serranova is a versatile area ideal for families looking for a holiday of sun, sea and activities. Santa Sabina and Specchiolla are sea side resorts full of fish restaurants and shops. Northern Italians choose Puglia as the most popular destination. Walkers and Bikers can enjoy the wonderful sand dune beaches of Torre Guaceto, Lecce, Brindisi and Alberobello. Those looking for more modern history can visit the WW2 landing sites at Gallipoli or Taranto.
Holiday in southern Italy in April and May is amazing The warm temperature combined with the evening rain turns the hedgerows and fields around Torre Guaceto and Serranova into a spectacular site of colours. Wild flowers of all shapes and sizes.The beaches are small and exclusive and there are no hotels or fast food places in site for 20 km.
Apulia rises in altitude the further north you go. The area around Torre Guaceto from the very southern tip of the heel up to Serra Nova is very flat. Once you get to Ostuni the landscape changes.
