Architect Valerie Van Der Put designed the Apulian holiday home Masseria Antonio Augusto, which is located in Salento. She created an oasis of Belgian and Italian design and the house thus combines the best of both worlds. On the edge of the vineyards of Leverano, we discover Masseria Antonio Augusto. This centuries-old building was once used as a flower market, among other things. Under the watchful eye of Limburg architect Valerie Van Der Put, it was given a new function, namely that of luxury private resort. It became an oasis of Belgian and Italian design in the cosy Salento. The subdued colour palette of beige-white, wood and grey with a touch of black gives the Masseria a certain peace and restraint, whereby the objects of the Limburg designer bring a sense of recognition. In filling in the public part of this renovation, Valerie has adopted the concept of a walk through a museum with a mix of art, design and authentic elements: a nod to the rich past of this region.
An oasis of Belgian and Italian design.
The organic swimming pool, like a mirage, is the heart of the property, for guests who rent the Masseria exclusively to fully enjoy their holidays in Apulia. You can enjoy the successful blend of old and new all year round on request. Masseria Antonio Augusto is a special meeting of Italy and Limburg, from the spaciousness and sober elegance that Valerie has made her trademark.
