“I lived and worked in the city with my husband. Our secret dream has always been to move to the countryside, live a life in contact with nature and start a stimulating activity with more free time. When we found an ancient villa in the countryside of Ostuni, it was love at first sight and from there began the path that led us to create Terra Sessana. Nowadays it is a country resort made up of ancient houses with private swimming pools where our guests you spend holidays, but it is above all a place where we joyfully share, with them, the peace and serenity of this beautiful spot of Puglia. “
A few kilometers from the “white” Ostuni and the attractive beaches of the Apulian coastline , immersed in a beautiful country punctuated of trulli and secular olive trees, stands the enchanting Terra Sessana.
The name comes from the district in which it is located: from the latin etymology (sanus) which means healthy life in harmony with nature.
Terra Sessana is a quaint holiday resort that extends over 7 hectares of land. Within this resort there are four houses: the Blue House which is the most prestigious and spacious house, an ancient Trullo, a typical stone building that is traditionally called Lamia, and a Casale with a large veranda overlooking the gardens.
Each property has it’s own private pool, a lawned garden, and ancient olive trees, from which you can enjoy a marvelous view of the valley.
The interiors of each house have traditional flooring and vaulted stone ceilings. The furnishings are elegant and comfortable.
