Masseria Alto Salento, Lizzano, Puglia, Italy

$13,500,000 USD



The Masseria was inaugurated as a restaurant-hotel facility in 2010, following a renovation process lasting about 5 years. Located in a district a few steps from the sea, the original structure was a farmstead with the first records dating back to the late 17th century and was operational for many decades. The current owners decided to transform it into a hospitality facility, preserving its original form while adapting it to the times and the desires of the contemporary tourist clientele.

The project's idea was to keep the historic building intact in its parts, transforming the spaces that were once used for farming work and living into functional areas for accommodation. The old animal shelters, called "suppenne," have become Deluxe rooms and Suites; the old warehouses are now a Wellness Center and Restaurant; the oldest structure, the "pagliara," has been transformed into a prestigious Cellar. Despite the modernization, the Masseria has never abandoned its past, and the owners have not altered the sense and identity of this place, guiding the renovation in a direction of modernity and functionality.

The Masseria has a central body with an elegant restaurant, and the rooms are arranged in an amphitheater around the large swimming pool. Additionally, there is an ancient structure called "paiara," where a charming cellar has been built.
