Olive trees, forming the wealth and pride of the Salento peninsula, extend beyond the famous white stone walls of the Baroque town of Lecce. Their green gold was extracted for centuries on the impressive fortified farms known as masserias, which also acted as palaces for the local aristocracy and great landowners. This property, dating back to the 16th century, can be reached via an umbrella pine tree lined alleyway that goes under the perimeter wall and up to the main 2,700 m² house. With vaulted ceilings and old ceramic tiled floors, the large rooms hold much promise. Select renovation works could transport visitors to the height of the Sicilian Baroque period. The outbuildings also bear witness to the size of the masseria, which has a dovecote, a chapel and an outstanding oil mill in the basement. This property would be ideal for an agritourism or rural hotel and catering project.
