The estate was first built at the end of 1700, with an extension in the early 900s; it’s made up of nine trulli, typical rural houses of considerable historic-archaeological significance, quite common in the province of Brindisi. Due to its architectural features and its pleasant surroundings, the building could be converted into tourist accommodation.
Concession free of charge, with surface rights, for 99 years from the Municipality of Fasano – with touristic and cultural purposes.
The structure is made up of rubble limestone masonry. There are two types of façades: an ancestral one on the North-West side, that mirrors the old house; the other on the South-East side is more recent, built when the original nucleus was extended. The external area is grassland and is partially covered by tall pine trees. Its current purpose permits it to be used for touristic purposes, as stipulated by the City of Fasano. The estate was declared of historic and artistic interest by the MIBACT with the 07/01/2013 restriction decree, under article 10, comma 1, of the Legislative Decree 42/2004; it can be developed for authorised use for 50 years.
