Masseria Impisi was once a farm with an underground olive mill. The transformation into a tranquil holiday retreat by artists David and Leonie was the subject of one of ‘Grand Designs’ most popular television programmes. Kevin McCloud described the project as “a truly magnificent site that really does feel like the garden of Eden”.
There are two apartments for self-catering guests, connected by an arched colonnade and surrounded by landscaped gardens. A small swimming pool has been hewn from the limestone rock and sculptures and mosaics can be discovered everywhere.
Guests can borrow bicycles to explore the surrounding countryside, try their hand at archery or borrow a book from the small library and T.V room. The apartments can be rented at most times of the year. Organised Art holidays, Cycling, Walking and Sightseeing holiday and Creative Writing Courses are run at various times in the Spring and Autumn.
