In the heart of the Apulian Romanesque
The ancient horse court, the keep, the tower for carrier pigeons, the high stone walls make one think of tough knights but also of a noblewoman like Maria Amalia D’Urso, the charitable and very rich lady of the “maritaggi”, who three centuries ago he secured the dowry to hundreds of poor girls.
Today this farm, which has been restored according to rigorous conservation criteria, has become a charming residence with hospitality that has not affected the specific essence of the place.
OVER 500 YEARS OF FAMILY HISTORY
The current owner is Avv. Emilia D'Urso, coordinator of the Slow Food "Mandorla di Toritto" Presidium.
A large organic farm, dedicated to ecological management practices that respect the strict Slow Food regulations, surrounds the ancient stone structure. The interiors of the farm are characterized by stone arches and barrel vaults, apotropaic sculptures, arcane-shaped passages and cult symbols handed down for generations. Crossing the threshold leads to being immersed in an atmosphere imbued with ancient, austere and refined flavors but full of domestic warmth, taste and personality.Varcarne la soglia porta ad essere immersi in un'atmosfera impregnata di sapori antichi, austeri e raffinati ma pieni di calore domestico, di gusto e personalità.
