Set on a 100-acre property dotted with vineyards, and olive, lemon and almond trees, the Masseria Marzalossa presents itself as a quiet retreat and an ideal base from which to explore the area’s attractions.
Old stone walls enclose shady courtyards accented by flowers, palms, and olive trees. One courtyard holds an inviting swimming pool, surrounded by interesting stone columns set among lemon trees and bougainvillea.
The elegantly decorated and romantic guest rooms in the main house feature flagstone floors, vaulted or beamed ceilings, and furniture typical of the region.
The masseria also produces many of the items offered on the menu, such as organic vegetables and wine. Specialties are olive oil and the jam served every morning at the country-style breakfast.
