In the ancient Terra d'Otranto, where Italy has an end, FINIBUS TERRAE, opens on the Ionian Sea, a verdant plague made of ancient olive trees that have been there since before Christopher Columbus discovered America, between Ugento and Santa Maria di Leuca:
the heart of the uncontaminated Salento that preserves intact the signs of peasant life (trulli, liame, pajare, masseria etc.) and ancient traditions. In the center of this tongue of land, stands the Antico Borgo di Presicce, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, whose millennial history is testified by numerous artifacts (palaces, dovecotes, underground oil mills, etc.) dating back to the X-XII century .
The Farm Masseria Pescu
Between a forest of oaks and Mediterranean scrub, at the top of a modest hill near Presicce, is the Masseria Pescu dating back to the seventeenth century and with its hypogeal trappeto (huge hand-mill in the rock) of much older age .
The Masseria, whose restoration carried out in compliance with the original construction and finished in spring 2006, offers a B & B service, providing guests with comfortable Junior Suites (with maxi double beds) and Lodges with independent entrance and shaded outdoor veranda, equipped with tables and chairs.
The location of the Masseria, given its centrality in the area, allows you to easily reach the historic center of Presicce on foot, and within a few minutes drive the most beautiful beaches of southern Salento, including tourist destinations of significant cultural importance.
From the Masseria our guests can enjoy a wide panoramic view in a natural and suggestive environment, pervaded by peace and silence. The large private pool available, complete relaxation.
Walking through the woods of the Masseria, among the plants of scrub you can see, in addition to the underground mill, also the ancient quarry from which the tuff was extracted, material used in the local building.
The Antica Masseria Pescu is run by a local family, with Bartolomeo and Maria Rosaria, who will welcome you with cordial friendship and will be happy to provide you with any useful information on excursions, sporting or cultural activities as well as to report the premises near the Masseria , which offer at fair prices the best of the typical dishes of land or sea.
