Valentina and Giuseppe met by sharing the love for the past and the passion for archeology, for which they have studied and worked. Now the past revives every day and their Agriturismo is for them a means to convey their knowledge and passions. The promotion of the landscaping context in which the Masseria stands and where they have chosen to return living is their mission. In this view of development and regeneration of Salento rural heritage, they start to restore ANTICA MASSERIA AGRESTE.

It is still today a harsh area, burned by the summer sun, beaten by the south and north winds, where people have had to struggle to create a life prospect, a barrier-free frontier site hardly modifiable… and that is precisely why of a unique and uncontaminated beauty. In all seasons there are different shades of light and color, the smells of Mediterranean plants are inebriating and the birds of prey are loyal companions of walk marking the step from the sky ..
