From the first hole of the San Domenico Golf Course, one can already catch a glimpse of a red tower in the distance, which stands out against the intense blue of the sky and the sea that surrounds it.
One is driven by curiosity while approaching it and only at the 8th hole you reach it. It’s the Masseria Cimino, a 18th century building, now consigned to San Domenico Golf as its guest House, for those passionate golfers who can’’t envisage being too far away from the course.
In 2005 Masseria Cimino, surrounded by expanses of vegetable gardens and century old olive groves, was completely restored. Great care was taken to preserve the original architectural features, building materials, and colors of the old farmhouse.
The Masseria has now 15 guest rooms, some of which are located in the ancient tower and others in the old farmhouse adjacent to the archaeological site, which has just recently been unearthed and which form part of the slaves’ dwellings in the ancient city of Egnatia. The walls of this ancient city form part of the boundaries of this property.
The rooms have been furnished in a fresh Mediterranean style and are equipped with all the comforts one would expect.
