Masseria Tagliente is located on the Murge, at 420 meters of altitude above sea level, covers about 180 hectares, in which will find maquis, oaks, mastic trees, arbutus, laurel, rosemary, oregano, broom, rock roses, sage, wild orchids, crocuses and cyclamen.
It is a rare testimony of the past, as it has maintained over time, seamless, its original use as a holiday place of the owner and as a farm. It’s a real Masseria, which means farm, in which they breed murgesi horses, cows, goats, sheep and poultry.
The house, with the adjoining chapel was built in 1849 on a much more ancient settlement, like the trulli, probably dating back to the ‘700, built completely dry.
In the apartment manor and the chapel are preserved the original furniture of the family; from the windows, you can see a lovely panorama that reaches the Gulf of Taranto and the Pollino mountains, Calabria.
Around the house, there are a lot of trulli, some of which have preserved the original ancient destination for animals and barns. The space, up to the forest, is cleverly divided by stone walls that surround the garden with ornamental plants, the terraced vegetable garden with old trees and pastures.
In the forest there are hiking trails that lead up to the Cave of the Hundred Rooms, to the viewpoint and Gravina.
