Authentic and white

Since the year 1500, for over 5 centuries, farm in the countryside; today Charm-hotel and biological farm immersed in an atmosphere out of time, where culture and tradition mingle and weave together with research and modernity. A place where we love to listen and tell old and new stories.
Located in the country near Ostuni, surrounded by thousand-year-old olive trees and gorgeous landscapes, Masseria Il Frantoio is that corner of Puglia and of the Alto Salento region that you always wanted to experience, to bring back home the most authentic essence of a people and a land with strong contrasts and a myriad of facings.

Vivere un’esperienza autentica e raffinata

Our motto ist: “Puglia, only Puglia, very strongly.. Puglia!” because guests from all over the world travel thousands of kilometers to visit it and we select the best experiences and activities to guarantee you to come home enriched and relaxed.
The Masseria Il Frantoio everyday offers to its guests biologic fruits and vegetables that are cultivated and finished inside on the estate, but especially a great variety of Slow Food products and over 35 different wild erbs that are being picked under the thousand year old olive trees.
A slow, otiose experience, in contact with the flavors, fragrances, colors and sounds of a wonderful land.

“You gave us a little corner of paradis!”

This is how, usually, the guests greet us before leaving. Care and courtesy, attention and refinement, rest and serenity but also entertainment, culture and pleasure are our daily recipe in the art of hospitality that we offer every day to our guests.
We wish accommodate you in our “country house” to let you seize the deep sense of big and small details of tradition and to breath in the ancient atmosphere of an authentic Apulian manor farm.
In this video just a small foretaste of this timeless place and of its atmospheres, in expectation to accommodate you and to let you discover the soul of the Alto Salento.


The good awakening

The breakfast of the Masseria is a special cuddle for our guests. Every day at 4am our confectioner rings at the door and, after a good coffee, begins to prepare the 10 different cookies that you will find on the table at your awakening and the good-morning cake (always different). 3 extra biologic jams turn every morning depending on the products of the season. Fresh biologic fruits, milk products, cold puts and eggs of chicken bred on the ground complete this magic moment.

The good daily breaks

In every moment we love to cuddle you with a special coffee of the Masseria, a glass of wine selected from the over 75 rigorously Apulian labels in our wine cellar, 20 biological tea and infusion or the special aperitif made out of 7 secret ingredients that you can enjoy with sundried almonds, 4 types of olives in brine or lime, fried fava beans (no Clipster in our house), taralli and… something more!

The good homecoming

Every evening your guardian angel of the night will receive you at the door, offering you one of of the 35 liquors produced by the farmstead, and he will accompany you to the fireplace during winter and to the salon in the open in summer.
