NEW THIS YEAR. Ostuni Council have now extended the network of CYCLE TRACKS in our coastal area. The tracks start right outside our front gate taking you by the historical olive groves and mills, along part of the old 'Via Traina' - Roman Emperor Trajans' road from Rome to Brindisi - and past ancient habitations. In the well appointed rest areas along the routes are maps and local information. Borrow one of our bicycles and explore the quiet lanes around Masseria Impisi.

Visitors to Masseria Impisi can now buy our own produce - extra virgin olive oil, made from hand-picked organic olives, freshly laid eggs from the chickens you can see wandering the gardens, jams and liqueurs from our own fruit trees, fresh pesto and a hot and spicey Ferragosta salsa. There are many herbs in the garden free to gather.
