This masseria for sale near Lecce in Puglia is a historic testament to 17th-century architectural art. Meticulously restored between 2008 and 2010, it stands majestically amidst centuries-old olive groves, prickly pear cacti, various citrus trees, and a variety of fruit trees, all set against the enchanting backdrop of the Ruffano countryside, 127 meters above sea level. The central structure of this farmhouse is a fortified tower that once served as the main nucleus around which a small farming community developed. This historic complex includes quarters for the settlers, an ancient stone oven, and enclosed inner gardens dedicated to citrus cultivation. The main house boasts six bedrooms, some standard and others superior, each equipped with air conditioning, heating, a minibar, and a private bathroom. In addition to the bedrooms, the farmhouse offers a spacious breakfast room, a generous lounge, and a well-appointed porch, perfect for enjoying the summer months.
