The property was built in the XVI century. The land around it is full of antique olive trees. The mission of the five star resort that will derive from this restoration work is to bring back the guests to the antique natural life. This kind of Masserias are in fact sighting towers against the attacks of the Turks pirates and they are all in the same line approx. 1 km from the sea in order to see first the attack. With the passing of time they have been used for the production of the green gold: the olive oil, in fact we are in the biggest producing area of high quality olive oil in all of Italy. Also in the Masseria were bred many kinds of cattle, donkeys of the murgian race, horses for work, pigs for making splendid Parma ham or capicollo that are still produced at the masseria and milk by products from goats an cows the famous burrate and mozzarella.
M11612 has 33 rooms all with their own private little garden deep in the olive trees territory of the fasano planes, 2 rooms are in the antique caves, one of which is a very large suite with its own private 200 sq mt antique orchard. Orchard in which, out of an antique water reservoir we have built a little private pool for this special room even with the latest Jacuzzi. Meanwhile there are rooms in the antique tower were they used to hang to dry the cherry tomatoes for the winter and you can see the blue sea from the little spy - windows. Some other rooms are placed inside the courtyard of the M11612 and one has its own antique orchard garden also and its also next to the main "Erbarium" that makes you dizzy with all the perfumes that emanates.
