Masseria Salamina is set back 7km from the Adriatic Sea in the Puglian “heel” of Southern Italy in a grove of olive trees dating over 400 years old. In the 1600’s, Joseph Salamina extended and fortified the farm buildings for protection from the Moors. The result today is an extraordinary structure that the current owners continue to restore, maintaining much of its original works to preserve its history and integrity.
Currently a working farm, the Masseria produces mouthwatering olive oil, balsamic vinegar, primitivo wine and jams and spreads. These products are only a small part of the delectable cuisine produced in their restaurant.
More than charming, Masseria Salamina is an ideal place for relaxation, exploration, and incredible food. Being a family-run business, the hosts were warm and welcoming, making our stay in Puglia a memorable one!
