 Would you like to know more?

BioMasseria Santa Lucia is an authentic ancient Masseria steeped in history, where it is possible to dive into a past when human life and work were shaped by the passing of seasons and influenced by the weather. The Masseria, which is located in Alessano (Lecce) near an archeological settlement inhabited in ancient times by the Basilian monks, has been submitted to a careful and respectful conservative restoration. The building has been brought to new life using ancient, simple and natural materials such as lime, stone and wood, in a minimalist way so as not to spoil the ancient harmony. Today it is possible to plunge in the serenity and harmony of the past, hosted in sober but comfortable and welcoming guest rooms, or relaxed in the Masseria’s courtyard , coddled by the owners Luciana and Danilo, who live in the Masseria all year round. There are eight guest rooms inside the Masseria, all set up in the old premises, they have an outdoor area dedicated to relax in an aromatic herbs garden or facing a large lawn shaded by olive trees. In the room the guest disposes of wifi, mini-bar of juices, local wines and typical liqueurs, small attentions such as the corner dedicated to herbal teas and coffee, the bathroom and bedroom courtesy sets and the pool set.
