From an ancient hamlet born around a fortified watchtower, adjacent to the Castle of the nearby town, this Masseria develops over the centuries, enclosing open spaces, animal shelters, homes, workplaces and sacred buildings, later becoming the summer residence of a local aristocratic family who also built a thriving farm there.
The charm of the long history of the ancient Masseria still lingers in the ancient workspaces, where the stables, closets, old warehouses (which still have their original layout with star and barrel ceilings) and mangers are located around the building.
The property, of over 6 hectares, is used as an accommodation facility and within it there is the historic residence of about 2500sqm, dating back to the end of the 17th century, converted into a hotel, with an independent apartment for the owners, an adjacent building that houses a large restaurant of over 1,300 sqm and other rooms, the small church, an independent villa (200 sqm) and a large area, used as a riding club until these days, with stables, racing fields and barn.
A large park, the citrus grove, the small square inside the historic house, the wisteria arch are just some of the suggestive corners that the estate offers, poetic backgrounds that are perfect both for a prestigious private residence and for a niche accommodation business.
In a strategic position, at the same distance from Otranto (25 km), Gallipoli (26 km) and Lecce (30 km), and also from the famous beaches of the Ionian and Adriatic coasts (both reachable in 20 minutes by car), the Hotel with riding club Terra d'Otranto is immersed in the typical Salento countryside, less than an hour away from Brindisi international airport.
