-----------------------------------

The agritourism is located within the Alta Murgia National Park and is 3 minutes by car from Castel del Monte and 30 Km from the sea. The name chosen by the Pavan brothers, heirs to a large farming business of approximately 38 hectares, pays homage to a majestic pine on the property that is almost 300 years old. It offers accommodations, dining and public lounges.

The accommodation

The oldest part of the structure, at one time the rural dwelling of the owner of the entire manor farm, called Citula, is now broken up into smaller properties; it can be traced back to the XVII century and includes extensive additions and modifications dating back to the first half of the 1800s. During that era the region, which had been subject to the feudal rule of the Carafa family - the dukes of Andria and counts of Ruvo, was privatized and came into the possession of important people or representatives of the agrarian bourgeoisie, who built their summer homes here.

With due respect to its ancient architecture in local stone (the restoration work was well directed by Engineer Natalino Petrone of Corato), the building is composed of a ground floor with two lounges, a reception area and breakfast or lunch room, and a larger dining room which can comfortably seat up to 44 guests. All of the dining areas together can therefore seat up to a maximum of 70 people.

The upper levels, which are also accessible by the elderly and partially disabled by way of an elegant elevator (home-lift), are made up of 7 bedrooms, two of which are very large and allow for the addition of cots. There is also a sort of suite available (a bedroom and large sitting room with a bath attached) which has a private terrace that is almost 180 m². Various rooms are equipped with private baths, TV (upon request) and air conditioning. Hospitality is completed by the availability of a room with a small bookshop and two lounges.

All rooms are heated and most are equipped with period windows and door frames and family furnishings from the last 6 generations which lend an intimate and welcoming air to your stay, one of the main goals that the agritourism hopes to accomplish.

Activities and surrounding

Located about 600 meters from Provincial Route 234, the lodge, with its rock walls that are over 1 meter thick and with its rear garden, lends itself to reading and moments of peace and tranquility.
In the same spirit, on foot or by (rented) mountain-bike, guests can wander along the paths that lead away from the manor farm for interesting walks to discover flowers, plants and native wild greens or to admire the surrounding countryside with its varied panoramas due to the undulating terrain and its native fauna.

In the immediate vicinity guests can make arrangements for horseback riding or reserve flights on ultra-light aircraft. The lodge is conveniently located within a maximum one hour car ride from interesting artistic, archeological, historical, cultural and natural sights. Besides the nearby Castel del Monte (defined as “the secular sanctuary”), and the other castles of Barletta and Trani, there are the beautiful marine areas of Barletta, Trani e Bisceglie, Pre-Roman, Roman and Medieval ruins at Canne della Battaglia, Canosa and Ruvo di Puglia, as well as the spas at Margherita di Savoia, also known for its salterns which are the largest in Europe and where, for some time, there has been a Natural Reserve for numerous species of birds.

Other places to visit are: Andria, Corato, Terlizzi with its ancient monuments and palaces, Minervino Murge, Altamura, Gravina and, outside of the region, in Lucania, 70 Km., Matera (with its famous Sassi) which is characterized by historical-naturalistic and environmental excursions. Gravina and Matera are also known for their rock dwellings.

The cities of Barletta, Trani, Ruvo, Bitonto and Molfetta, all in nearby Bari, located 55 km from the lodge, constitute the most important Romanesque monument complex in Puglia. Other destinations are, to the north, Mattinata, Monte Sant'Angelo and San Giovanni Rotondo and, in the other direction, within nearby Lucania, Venosa, Melfi and the lakes of Monticchio.

    "Warm welcome and excellent culinary delights."

    08/01/2017

    We had a wonderful stay at this high level with many day trips in the area from culture to beach. The family reception was particularly good. The short walks into the fields of the house gave an insight into the fruit and vegetable cultivation. The entire property is very tastefully renovated and offers besides air conditioning and W-Lan everything necessary. In the evening, it is romantic, with a carafe "Rosato" in front of the house. The organic products spoiled our palate from breakfast to dinner and was always generously offered. We would like to recommend Agriturismo Il Pino Grande as a secret gem.

    "a big disappointment"

    04/18/2017

    I was in this farm on Easter Monday, 2017, and it was a very negativa.Un di45euro dining experience, disappointing both in terms of quality and quantity: a pasqualina cake that was not at all bland as appetizer which was followed by a piece of cod mignon three ravioli and a lasagna high 3.4, millimeters mignon and also very hard as an insole which in no way gave the flavor of a puff; He followed a frayed braised wild boar (never seen such a preparation like that) .Sinceramente from a farm I do not expect a kitchen that wants to look fine when it is not or when not know how to do.
