We Maurice and Gisella, and we welcome you in our home and in our small organic farm where we produce extra-virgin organic olive oil, fruit and vegetables.
The farmhouse Santo Stefano has the advantage of being in the quiet of the countryside and at the same time be close to the beach (just 1 km) and the city of Monopoli (3 km) accessible on foot or by bike through the bike path that runs just outside the our gate. This means guests can go to the beach, enjoy the quiet of the countryside and enjoy the city with a simple pedal.
Our farm consists of two houses, one of which is our home, and the other is dedicated to the guests, surrounded by a hectare of olive and carob trees, with twisted and gnarled trunks, and heady Mediterranean mastic and wild thyme. The architecture is typical of the rural houses of the coastal Puglia: simple shapes, thick walls made of whitewashed tufa, local stone floors, wooden windows with reeds shaded against the summer heat.
For our guests we wanted to store and reproduce all the features of country life of our grandparents furnishing the rooms with furniture and objects from the past that belonged to our families, ensuring every comfort for a relaxing and rejuvenating holiday.
The cottage dedicated to hospitality has three double bedrooms and a kitchen. Both the rooms and the kitchen have their own entrance from the outside.
Each bedroom has a spacious bathroom with a window and shower, exclusive veranda overlooking the olive grove and private entrance. Each bedroom is on a different side of the cottage ensuring adequate privacy. The rooms are equipped with cooling and radiant floor heating for the ultimate comfort in every season, safe, smart LED TV, free WiFi, bed linen and bath (antique hand-embroidered linen on request).
