The Masseria is set in the most idyllic countryside. To the side is a delightful avenue of olive trees which yield the most delicious oil you have ever tasted! To the other side is an orchard of citrus, peach, plum and fig trees. To the front is the most immaculate and beautifully-kept vineyard you'll ever see.  There is a large courtyard to the front of the Masseria which leads to the private chapel. This courtyard has wonderful trees and flowers surrounding it. It leads to the gorgeous vaulted inner atrium which in turn leads to the very large inner courtyard which is set up for outside dining. It also has wonderful mature trees. An inner tunnel leads to the secret walled garden that houses our magnificent swimming pool. This is 10m x 6m and is hand-crafted with beautiful mosaic. It is surrounded by the ancient walls with a garden area with citrus fruits and prickly pears. There is  a pool toilet and shower. At the other end of the inner courtyard is the magnificent walled citrus groves. We have dozens of types of orange, lemon, lime, mandarins, clementines and avocados - all organically farmed, and irrigated via our private artesian well.
