Puglia Farmhouses, the ancient Masseria Brigantino










When travelling along the road in Puglia, it’s very easy to come across large farmhouses that sprout above the tops of ancient olive trees or between the rows of vineyards: these are the Apulian, ancient farms of Puglia.
Over the centuries, various uses have characterised every one,
making each masseria a unique incarnation of our agricultural landscape.

Its story starts with the foundation of a monastery by the Basiliani monks during the VII – VIII Century A.C. It was later used as an hypogeum olive press (or (trappeto).
On this site the current farmhouse was built, and in the 17th century, it became a rest home for old monks and a place to retreat, and lately used as a shelter by bandits thanks to the numerous surrounding caves.
In more recent times it became a summer destination for noble Neapolitans, and over time the Masseria has continued with agriculture: the production of oil, cotton, wheat and citrus fruits, as reported by the testimonies of the time.

THE RECLAIM OF THE ORIGINAL STYLE OF THE APULIAN MASSERIA










The hotel was recently acquired by the Fasano family, who have carried out restoration work maintianing the traditional style and using local techniques. The original appearance and soul have been kept intact, through the use of stone, mortar, tuff,
wood and wrought iron, and the building has been restored in the original style of Apulian Farmhouses.

Currently Masseria Brigantino, situated near the smalll hamlet of Torre Spaccata, looks like a period structure, surrounded by Medierannean scrub,
reeds, carbo, and olive groves sloping towards the nearby Adriatic sea, and retains its agricultural vocation.

The farm still actively produces extra virgin olive oil, citrus fruits and jams which you can sample over breakfast.
