Day Trip to the Murgia, 5

After our walk through the Alta Murgia, we stopped by the Masseria Modesti, a working farm that supplements its income by also operating as a restaurant/hotel. This kind of place is called an "agriturismo" in Italy.

The restaurant features local recipes and ingredients produced on the farm.

24 rooms are available if you would like to stay here and other facilities include a bar, a 25 meter swimming pool, a grassy and shaded playground for children and a bocce court.

You can also veiw the farm animals, which is something children love to do!



There is a small church in the local style, an area where campers can park, as well as a large parking area for cars.






It's in a truly lovely and peaceful setting...and you can't beat the view!

Wow, Saretta, what a post! I saw this in the portal and I'm glad I clicked on it. I especially love the shot of the fields, looking past the tile roof.

A nice set of photos, the place looks really beautiful. My favourite shot is the one through the window, but the roof tiles are great too.

Those parts on the roof just look like "Kawara".

Sounds like a fantastic place to visit.

Sounds like a wonderful and relaxing place! Definitely our type of vacation.

"Agriturismo" — I like the term. We can adopt it, I think, what with our Spanish heritage.
