Immersed in the red land of Salento, among olive trees, Indian figs and fruit trees, situated in a privileged position on a hill, Masseria Uccio enables to enjoy the silence and calm of the countryside.
Entirely realized with local stones, the ancient building shows the signs of the time gone by. A small wooden main door leads to a large quadrangular courtyard from which the places once destined to the farmer's various activities develop: the rooms where he slept with his family, the stalls, the sheepfolds, the tool-sheds and a kitchen with a large fireplace for the production of cheese. It is an overall harmonious and pleasing building with its rural characteristics, enhanced by the beautiful star and barrel vaults and by the dry walls built with effort by the peasants only with inserted stones.
A light renovation intervention enabled to revisit these areas maintaining their ancient essence. The architectural shapes and the geometries of the place have remained unchanged. Everything has been preserved, respected and enhanced. The work of skilled local artisans enabled to preserve the stone fireplaces, the niches dug out in the walls, the water tanks and the ancient vaults, signs of a humble peasant life which is now far away.
