Gelso (Italian for "mulberry") is a 2 bedroom apartment (sleeping four people) that was converted from part of a barn storing grain and machinery when the Masseria was being used as a working farm.

The apartment has access to both the main internal garden (surrounded by a 2 - 3m high wall) to the west and our small olive grove to the east, allowing guests to follow either the sun or the shade during the day when using the outside space.
You enter the apartment into the central dining and kitchen area of the apartment. On the right is the kitchen equipped with a 4 ring gas hob, electric oven, large fridge/freezer and fitted cupboards. The kitchen boasts fantastic views of both the garden and the olive grove to offer some Mediteranean inspiration whilst you prepare the evening meal.
To the left is a large, glass top dining table and four chairs, arranged to make maximum use of the views to the front and back of the property through the patio doors. However, if you would prefer to eat alfresco style, there are also facilities on both terraces.
The rear terrace has a coffee table and seating for four and makes a wonderful setting for breakfast or an evening drink. The main patio area to the front of the apartment has an outside dining table and chairs underneath a wooden portico with a sail cloth cover which provides a lovely shady spot to enjoy lunch or dinner.
Beyond the kitchen / dining area is the living area which includes a comfortable sofa, which is easily big enough for two adults and two children, armchairs and a coffee table. The layout works perfectly for discussing the next day's adventures, enjoying a family DVD on the wall mounted flat-screen TV (we have a library of DVDs available) or curling up after the kids have gone to bed to enjoy a quiet nightcap of local limoncello (delicious!).
On the left of the central family space is the master bedroom featuring a king-sized bed, large wardrobe and bedside tables for storage. It benefits from a large east-facing window which provides great views of the iconic olive trees that are so synonymous with this region of Italy. The bedroom is served by a very spacious en-suite bathroom equipped with a walk-in shower, wash-hand basin, toilet, bidet and a practical storage system for towels, toiletries and cosmetics.
To the right of the central room is the second bedroom featuring two single beds, chest of drawers, storage unit and a bedside table. It also has a spacious en-suite bathroom which is an almost mirror image of the other bathroom and includes the same facilities.
Both bedrooms have remote-control air conditioning units, providing either cold or warm air.
Wifi is available throughout the apartment and also extends out throughout the garden and the pool area.
