La Rosa dei 4 Venti is a 15-hectare property situated on a small hillock in the heart of the Itria Valley in the heel of Italy's boot. (Nearest international airport is Brindisi). The landscape is rural and dotted with beautiful olive trees and vineyards, divided by pretty dry-stone walls. The main building is a 16th century masseria (farmhouse) that has been elegantly restored in typical, old apulian style with many of the authentic features still in place.
The grounds contain lovely gardens, a swimming pool, a wild forest and fields, and a tiny church. There is plenty of space to walk and be free.
Food: Vegetarian meals are cooked to an excellent standard using local produce. You will sample some of the traditional recipes of Puglia. If you have any special dietary requirements please notify us at the time of booking and we will do our best to accommodate these.
Treatments: There is a massage room where a range of massage treatments are offered at very reasonable rates. Sessions should be booked at the beginning of the week.
Accommodation: All rooms are en suite with shower, toilet and basin. Each room is a different shape and unique is its own way. Furnishings and fabrics complement the building and create a calm and very comfortable environment. The masseria comfortably accommodates 10 students and close by there are another 5 rooms in the trulli houses. These small, white conical buildings are one of the most magical aspects of the Puglian landscape. It's not a hotel; it's a unique, comfortable, family-run specialist yoga destination.
