    History

    Ancient roots

Once a countryside monastery, which probably Masseria San Francesco is named after, then owned by a wealthy family of farmers and breeders, the Masseria has been renovated into a charming residence. The renovation work has preserved the essence of origins: a small village of Trulli. Nothing has been touched from the past: you can still see the dark walls of the trullo -oven, the original barn beams where cheese wheels were hung for seasoning, the farmyard, the mangers, the ancient stone paving, warehouses, once a place where traditional dishes were prepared and where women get together regularly to prepare fruit jam and tomato sauce and to knead bread, frise and taralli.
The original name "Masseria San Francesco" has been kept. The Masseria dates back to 1730 and probably the name comes from the small church located in front of the structure, observer and protector of life that revolved around. One thing is undoubted: all the inhabitants of the area know it as "San Francesco"!.
