The Masseria has 15 rooms, some of which are located in the ancient tower Torre Cimino and others in the old farmhouse. The rooms are furnished in a mediterranean rural and authentical style. Some of the rooms have a beautiful fireplace and others have a large terrace overlooking the patio and golf course and with a view of the nearby Adriatic sea.
Masseria Cimino Hotel Restaurant
Like the rest of the hotel, Cimino’s rustic restaurant is furnished in white with lots of candles… how romantic! And the food suits the decor – a set menu of proper Pugliese pasta dishes and fabulous foccacia, all made with fresh vegetables grown on site. Also the fish dinner is excellent: Enjoy Italian style antipasto, primo and secondo. Delicious! The only worry is not to eat too much of every course or you won’t make it to the next ;-)
