Masseria Spina Resort is one of the oldest Apulian historic residences backed by a long and fascinating history, which began in the sixteenth century.
Back in 1500, the first owner, Francisco de Chiantera, bequeathed to his son Vito “ninety works in three bodies” located in what was then called San Basilio.In 1587 he took the name of “Spina”, after his marriage to Lucrezia Spina, who brought as a dowry “the plot with caves, olive presses and more”.
Again for marriage the Masseria passed to Ammazzalorsa family that owned the house until 1760, when it was sold to Vito Giuseppe Martinelli, Knight of Malta and Salerno noble, wealthy merchant and oil and silk manufacturer.
Starting from 1890 as a result of a wedding, Masseria Spina became the property of the old Meo-Evoli family who, in the late ’70s, made the Masseria Spina one of the first farmhouse activities of Puglia. Here, people can breathe the Apulian tradition and details within the walls of historic residences.
Il Nido is a fascinating panoramic apartment placed in the original fortified nucleus of Masseria Spina Grande, dating from the fifteenth century, with sea views.
La Filanda is a lovely apartment in a charming complex of Fortified Masseria Spina Grande (XI-XVIII sec.). Ancient building used for processing of silk in the eighteenth century, La Filanda is part of the structures of the second half of the ‘700, whose construction was boosted after its purchase by Carlo III° di Borbone del Casino di San Leucio in Caserta, later transformed into vanguard ‘directed-mill’. Masseria Spina is perfect for weddings!
