Masseria San Giovanni is located in the Itria Valley, the heartland of Puglia that is home to an immense expanse of ancient olive groves, very close to the Regional Parc of Dune Costiere and to the Adriatic beaches of Savelletri and Torre Canne. The Masseria was built in the second half of the 19th century following the traditional architecture of a fortified Masseria, or farmhouse.

New to Long Travel in 2023,  Masseria San Giovanni, an idyllic retreat nestled in a captivating landscape adorned with ancient olive trees, fragrant orange groves, flourishing vegetable gardens, and vibrant Mediterranean flowers. Dating back to 1600, this enchanting Masseria showcases the distinctive architectural style of fortified farms that are synonymous with the region. Imbued with historical significance, our property has been meticulously restored in accordance with local traditions, using authentic materials and preserving original details. This dedication ensures the safeguarding of the farmhouse's monumental value within the annals of architectural history.

Within the Masseria's grounds, you will discover a modest church from the early 17th century known as Chiesa "Madonna della Madia." Once a spiritual sanctuary for residents, workers, and visitors, this sacred space provided solace for agriculturalists seeking moments of prayer and gratitude. Today, the church remains a venue for festivities and contemplation, inviting our guests to immerse themselves in its serene ambience and find solace in silence.

Throughout the property, picturesque areas beckon guests to unwind and revel in the tranquil atmosphere. Bask in the shade of towering trees as you indulge in a leisurely lunch or our bespoke "couture picnic." Find serenity amidst the fruit orchard, engage in literary adventures within the cosy nooks of former stables, or luxuriate in the saltwater pool, seamlessly blending with the majestic surrounding landscape. Our philosophy of hospitality aims to create an environment where you feel genuinely at home.

Stepping inside, you will be greeted by interiors exuding warmth and hospitality. Our suites are elegantly furnished, each possessing its unique character and style, as we embrace the ethos of simplistic elegance. Within the communal spaces, relish the refreshing air, savour delectable snacks and beverages, and explore a carefully curated collection of books in the former olive oil pressing room.

Situated in the fraction of Montalbano di Fasano, Masseria San Giovanni resides on the historic Via Traiana, an ancient Roman route that once connected the Holy Land to Rome. This wonderful location invites you to embark on a journey through time, tracing the footsteps of ancient civilizations while immersing yourself in the captivating essence of the region.
