The History

Since 1841, when it was built, Masseria Corte degli Asini has soberly stared at the blue sea, protected by the verdant embrace of Cisternino’s mountains. Inhabited for decades by the knights of Malta, feudal lords of Fasano, in 1929 the Masseria became property of the Cisternino family, who has taken care of it for five generations, and still keeps devoting its time to the cultivation of olive and almond groves that cover the estate, as well as to the cattle breeding, which includes Altamura sheep, Murgese horse, and Martina Franca donkey.

The white lime and the luxuriant green countryside colour the linear figure of the Masseria: its name pays homage to the donkey, symbol of the sophisticated simplicity and carefree that are typical of the rural life.
