Really make sure you go: just the atmosphere for a foodie and history lover like myself: the three thousand year old tree others 1,000 and 2,000 years old what they must have lived through. The wild rocket growing on the ground. A lovely, lovely place then to visit the Masseria and taste the produce. Well worth the visit, so enjoyable.

We visited the farmhouse early evening, with Pietro as our guide. He was very friendly, informative and very sweet and funny with the children around. The visit started with a tour of the ancient olive oil mill, then some oil tasting, and to follow, he guided us through the fields with a clear description of some of the olive trees... More

Here we are again - because we just "had to" come back..! Having been so lucky as to have had the opportunity to live in Italy for five years, we have indeed visited many extremely beautiful and interesting places here. But if we were forced to pick only ONE (hard as it may be) place among all these, we all... More

Very friendly reception and a interesting tour of this ancient olive tree farm. This one dates back to the Romans. Old trees of 2000 years proved by carbon dating. They are 60 feet apart so the sun and rain sustain these trees for ever. Nice explenation how the oil was made over the centuries and what it was used for.... More

We really enjoyed this experience and would really recommend it. Its that nice feeling you get when you're getting the tour from people who really love and live what that do. The quality of their product is unquestionable! There's a fascinating historical aspect to the tour too. We bought a small bottle and enjoyed it in a home-cooked meal at... More

3000 year old trees overseeing the Messapian, Greek, Roman and Medieval times - WOW! Call the owner in advance for a visit (possible in English) to this impressive Masseria and directions how to get there. During the visit you can see some of the oldest olive trees in all of Italy and the guide explains not only why this place... More

Well worth a visit. Some of the olive trees are unbelievably old. Tasting the different types of oil was good too.

We enjoyed an interesting tour of the ancient olive tree plantation and historic olive processing underground 'factory' with the charming and enthusiastic Anna Rita. She was lovely with our children (who can be challenging!) and we learnt a lot. The oil was delicious too as was her recommendation for lunch in nearby Ostuni.

We stopped at the masseria on the recommendation of a friend. It was one of the most incredible places I have ever visited. We learned all about the olive trees, how they were planted (the spacing), the collection and production of the oil. The history that surrounds this masseria is magical, it was a very moving place. The oil tasting... More

This masseria is very impressive, there is very much history in all aspects: the buildings, olive trees and landscape. Taking a tour is a must do for better understanding of history in making olive oil but also history of the whole region. Besides the location and tour, the masseria also have several rooms for B&B. We stayed for 2 nights... More
