The farmhouse is a typical building of the end of 19th century. It is located near the sea in the warm countryside of South Salento. After having been home to farmers and breeders for many decades, the Masseria has recently been restored and now welcomes everybody who would like to spend a pleasant holiday in direct contact with nature.
The farmhouse is a typical building of the end of 19th century. In the past its main function was to give accommodation to farmers who worked in the nearby countryside. Many farmers' families lived in the Masseria. They lived together, cultivated the land and grazed their herds.
After many years of carelessness the farmhouse has recently been restored. The current owners have tried to give the building its old charm back, respecting its original architecture as well as possible.
All the rooms of the original farmhouse have been saved: the cowshed has been turned into a restaurant-room; the vaulted barns with their old wine-tankers have been transformed into a reception and breakfast-room; although they offer all modern comforts (private bathroom, fridge, air conditioning and TV), the bedrooms are still as they were in the past.
The farmhouseis located in a 15-hectare field, in which are cultivated olives and wheat. Beside the farmhouse there is a small pine wood, from where you can hear the buzzing of the cicadas in the heat of the summer days. Behind the Masseriathere are some citrus trees, from which you can get delicious marmalade. Finally, in the territory of the farmhouse you will see a few examples of Pajareof Salento, typical old stone houses.
The farmhouse is located near the sea in the warm countryside of Salento. The beaches of Pescolusewith their crystalline waters are only 4 km away and can be easily reached by bike. The Masseriawill provide you with everything. From the farmhouseyou can easily reach the main places and towns of Salento: Santa Maria di Leucais only 10 minutes by car, Gallipoli 20 min., Otranto 40 min. and Lecce50 min.
