This is a striking example of a Masseria, an 18th century fortified farm, and is in a great location looking down towards the Adriatic coast. It used to house over 20 families (farmers and share croppers) who worked on the farm . Our comfortable one-bed room with its fireplace was probably occupied by a whole family.
The rooms form a rectangle around the expansive central courtyard containing an old well and oven . It is very picturesque both in the daytime and the moonlight.
The Masseria produces wine, almonds and fantastic olive oil. The red setter who lives there will accompany you on a walk through the olive groves. Pietro, the owner, who obtained the masseria from a relative, is very warm and helpful. He joined us at the breakfast table (served on the kitchen veranda with views to the coast ) and talked about the area and the masseria. We had eaten lunch at Masseria Barbera and didn't need an evening meal but could have easily driven to a nearby town if we had wanted to .
