Taking various back roads, I finally managed to find this lovely place in the middle of nowhere and even stayed a day longer than anticipated.
This was not only due to the great countryside surrounding the Masseria, or the delicious traditional food served, but most of all the outstanding hospitality of the owner. Especially since travelling alone I appreciated the company of the family for breakfast and dinner and enjoyed getting a deeper insight into the Italian way of life, or the one of the South respectively ;-)
The very traditional former house of the nobles has been well preserved as such and one feels taken back in time – easily a few centuries. Farmers share the bottom of the house and take care of the fields and animals, which not only guarantees the freshest ingredients for the food served, but adds to the very original atmosphere created.
From here various sights, like Martina France, Alberobello and even Monopoli at the Adrian seaside can easily be visited; especially since the ways to get there are precious by themselves already.
Now the only question remaining is when I will be back, not doubting that I will be back for sure…
