Masserias are the soul of Puglia. For centuries, these imposing, often fortified constructions have experienced man’s hard work from dawn to dusk. Underlining the Apulian landscape, the Masserias emerge from the many olive groves. Today, the reimagined design invites this story to write a new chapter. The interiors use a subtle and refined décor to showcase the beautiful lime walls and create a real sense of continuity between the aged and the modern.
The Owner Story
In 2018, after many years of diligent work in France, their natural passion for food and strong appeal for the region of Puglia led Danielle and Jean-Louis to plant their roots in this incredibly beautiful pocket of italian countryside. Inspired by rolling landscapes and picturesque farmland, the couple knew instantly that this is a place they were complled to share with friends and strangers.
Enveloped by olive groves and the dusty hues of the Apuglian countryside, Masseria Dagilupi is a place of charm and pure relaxation. Guests are invited to sit back, relax and enjoy the beauty of this stunning farmland, the beautiful town of Ostuni and the Masseria's stunning contemporary renovation.
Masseria Dagilupi is a former oil mill surrounded by ancient olive trees, natural treasured monuments of this part of Puglia. The oldest part of Dagilupi dates back to 1600. Some discoveries in the mill during the renovation work are from the ‘ Magna Graecia ‘ era. History crosses this little gem nestled between the white houses of Ostuni to the West and the blue of the Adriatic Sea to the East.
