The masseria is located in the very center of Muro Leccese, one of the finest towns, not far from the beautiful sea of Otranto.
The house is full of art/design, and has a design swimming pool, table tennis area, large gardens and 20 people outside dining.

The space

Located in the center of Muro Leccese. XVI c. palazzo, a beauty to be seen. In the middle of the village, but very private. Amazing gardens, dining outside. Fully equipped kitchen.
On the first floor a very spacious suite composed of two bedrooms (normally one double bed and three twins, ideal for a couple with children) and one bathroom, and another large bedroom (double bed) and one bathroom (not ensuite) with both inside and outside showers, plus a large sitting room with fireplace. Two bedrooms and two bathrooms, not ensuite, on the ground floor .

Two additional rooms with ensuite bathrooms, terrane, kitchen and one additional bathroom are available in a separate apartment in the same property and may be added for larger groups (NOTE: extra fee required).
Large kitchen and large living room, full of light, on the ground floor.
Brand new swimming pool in the garden, should be at a sufficient distance from the house if you have babies and small children, for increased safety (please do not leave kids unattended under any circumstances).
Another palazzo with swimming pool is owned by same owners next door. Together they can sleep up to 30 people.

Great dining al fresco. Fantastic architecture, very large rooms. Spacious gardens. Fully equipped kitchen. Great place for hosting people.

Muro Leccese is one of the finest towns south of Lecce, never too crowded but also never too empty (in the winter). Very safe. The sea of Otranto, just 10 minutes, is one of the finest in Italy. In Otranto there is a private beach with shade area and a small restaurant which we normally suggest. Otherwise, there are many places that you can discover if you are more on the adventurous side.

The house is in a beautiful square which is almost "private" (our house takes the entire square front), and is 100 m. from the main square. In the vicinity you will find excellent sweets and cakes and some fine restaurants, really affordable.

No problem with parking your cars.

Car is necessary. Grocery stores, restaurants, shops, coffee bar, etc, at walking distance.

We had a very pleasant stay at the Ferramosca. The house is very atmospheric and has a large, idyllic garden.. We enjoyed having breakfast and dinner at the large dining table outside. The house and the bedrooms are very specious. However, some of the bedrooms are separated only by very thin doors so there is not much privacy. Alessandro was very responsive; he checked in with us during arrival/departure times and responded promptly to our e-mails. We were a big group with kids and had a good time at the house. The kids loved running around in the garden.. We weren't able to use the pool much due to weather conditions but it looked really nice. It was also somewhat out of the way, so no danger of kids falling into the pool! All and all, great place for big groups and groups with kids!

Response from Alessandro:
Aysel, many thanks. I believe your comments are fair. I am trying to give more details regarding the floor plan and inform prospective guests about the thin door separating the two bedrooms downstairs. I am sure that you would provide an even better review if you had enjoyed better weather. I am sorry the weather was not really good. Many thanks again. Alessandro

My friends and I had a really good time at Masseria Ferramosca. The house is wonderful, very well decorated and peaceful, even nicer than in the pictures! We especially enjoyed the pool and the large dinner table outside: it is the best place you can find to relax with friends. I would strongly recommend this palazzo! Communication with Alessandro was very good, he even sent us some tips to visit Puglia by email a few days before our trip, vying to put us in the right mood. There was a little misunderstanding regarding the size of the house and the number of beds: the pictures in the ad are showing the 2 houses that Alessandro owns in the village (next door), but depending the number of guests, you will get one palazzo or both. As we had last minute additional guests in our trip, we did not have enough beds, but we managed easily to find an arrangement, thanks to Alessandro’s reactivity and to Daniele’s availability. Last but not least, the region of Muro Leccese is very nice and rich. The village is nice and typical, and we were able to visit the great city of Lecce, to swim in the beautiful creeks around Galipolli, and to enjoy very good Italian food. Thanks again for this wondeful experience !

Response from Alessandro:
There was no misunderstanding, dear Tiphaine. We have had quite a discussion because you made a reservation for 5 people, got a good price and then wanted to bring 8 people instead of 5. Because you asked it so kindly, I accepted. Then I was a bit upset because upon arrival you were 10 (instead of 8). Please do not say my ad is unclear. Just for the airbnb community: it is the second time Tiphaine does it, according to her Airbnb records.

Un piacevolissimo soggiorno in una dimora unica. Se non fosse per gli eccezionali luoghi e sapori del Salento, non ci saremmo mossi da lì. Amate l'arte e la bellezza? Un altro motivo per scegliere tale oasi di pace e serenità. Alessandro, il proprietario, pur non essendo fisicamente presente, è stato sempre disponibile. Per non parlare di Daniele e la moglie Paola che con la loro discrezione tenevano casa e piscina perfettamente in ordine. Ci torneremo sicuramente. Spero presto!
