Dating back to the first half of the seventeenth century, the imposing Masseria Ciura, built in the seventeenth century by the homonymous Barons, is an important structure in every sense: for the majesty of its interior spaces and the nature that surrounds it; for its enviable position in the countryside of Massafra, about 7 km from the sea, in a hilly area characterized by Neolithic settlements and rock churches; for the richness of its history, and for over three centuries it has been a witness to important events and a fundamental reference point for the territory.
Taken over in 1958 by Francesco D'Agostino, the masseria and the connected farm, which has an extension of about 48 hectares planted with citrus fruits, olive groves and table grape vineyards, today represents a state-of-the-art structure in the field of farms.
Olive oil has been produced since the XVII century and there is still the ancient oil mill with the Genoese presses.
This olive oil is of excellent quality and obtained numerous national and international awards. In addition to the farm's crops, on the land surrounding the Masseria there are fruit trees typical of the Apulian territory and aromatic plants of every variety, making the experience of those who visit the Masseria a real journey into the culture of the territory.
To complete this landscape of great beauty, we find a river that crosses the property and a pond, where over the years many species of migratory birds have stopped and where other sedentary species have settled, thus making possible interesting bird-watching activities.
Recently renovated, the noble villa, with its surface of approximately 2000 square meters and 8000 square meters of private park, preserves the architectural structure of a typical seventeenth-century "Villa di Delizia", where objects and materials from different eras harmonically blend. The structures and equipment are very modern, designed to maximize comfort, still keeping the authenticity of the territory and the contact with nature.
Inside, large rooms with barrel and rib vaults, accommodating up to 400 people, are directly connected to the crystal "Kubo" overlooking the beautiful swimming pool and perfectly integrated into the ancient "lemon house".
On the first floor, there is a large private apartment. The property is surrounded by a centuries-old park which also houses a small church where you can celebrate intimate ceremonies immersed in the scent of orange blossoms.
The old stables, the sheepfolds, the ancient oil mill, with their approximately 3100 square meters, lend themselves to being transformed into spacious suites and charming convivial environments.
