The “Masseria Giustiniani” is a typical masseria of Salento and belongs to the typology of watch-tower masseria or fortified masseria.
In the sixteenth century fortified towers or watchtowers, both on the coast and inland, were built for the need of protection against the incursions of the pirates. They were built using ancient techniques which were typical of this land and still today we can admire fissures on the entrance and majestic thick walls, which join in star-shaped vault ceilings of rare beauty.
The Masseria Giustiniani is just 5 km from the Ionian Sea and its Caribbean beaches of fine sand of Torre Ovo, Campomarino, Lido Trullo di Mare, Lido Conche and San Pietro in Bevagna.
Four fully equipped independent rooms and an apartment (with two bedrooms and a living room) are located in the main building.
Four fully equipped independent rooms are located in a typical ancient Salento court, a plain building whose function was to defend the garden and the main building.
A careful restoration has preserved the original characteristics of the natural tuff stone walls, with numerous intact fossil shells, which create a special and evocative atmosphere of rare beauty.
