In Puglia, along Italy’s heel and near the most newly fashionable of the Italian beach resorts, stands Masseria Petrarolo, a farmhouse built around 1690. Now the 35-acre estate has a new eight-bedroom villa rental following a four-year restoration by Alexander Waterworth Interiors (behind Annabel’s, in London, and Soho Beach House, in Miami). The property’s vaulted spaces were preserved while also making cozy rooms, like the ones in classical European country houses. Stone floors, walls, and ceilings are softened by muted pastel furnishings, Italian antiques, and Turkish rugs. Outside, there are two pools and, of course, olive groves. From $12,240 a week; Monopoli; masseriapetrarolo.com.
