Nestled among the bright colours of the citrus groves and the green of the olive trees, the hotel building dates back to the end of the 19th century and has been given a new lease of life through the renovation of the spaces and materials of the past. The rural charm of the communal areas and guest rooms combine harmoniously with more modern and elegant features. The masseria has a wellness centre, restaurant and sports facilities. The masseria’s philosophy is eco-bio sustainability: the energy that supplies the building is entirely renewable thanks to its solar panels and the construction materials are mostly locally sourced. All the materials and cosmetic products used in the wellness centre, as well as the soaps and detergents used in the hotel, are organic and are produced from natural products.
