The history of the Masseria dates back to the 17th century, during which the Knights of Malta and Benedictine monks stayed here.
The renovation to turn the building into a vacation villa, which begun in the mid 90s, took place with respect of the formal and structural elements of the Masseria, perfectly integrating the original features with the refined decor and furniture throughout.
