— Please tell us a bit about the history of the Masseria.

— Please tell us a bit more about your vacation villa.
One of the many remaining original features, the embrasure, found in the walls of one of the upper floor suites reminds us of times in which enemies were repelled from above, by a bath of hot oil.”
— What kind of services and facilities do you offer to your vacation guests?
Our services include a chef who will indulge any request and would be particularly delighted to prepare you one of our typical Pugliese specialties, or offer a private traditional cooking course for those looking to try their hand at some of the best dishes in the world.
On the villa grounds you can enjoy badminton, ping pong, archery and jogging or blissful relaxation in the Finnish sauna or on the outdoor massage beds at the back of the pool area.
Butler, baby-sitter, personal trainer or dry cleaning services are also on offer and we can even organise special excursions, a hired driver or a private boat.”
