The farm

In Melendugno, in the hinterland of the marina of Torre Specchia, in the heart of Salento and the land of oil, the " Masseria Borgo Segine " awaits you, the farmhouse of the Greco family which boasts the 5 Sunflowers classification.    


Immersed in an uncontaminated territory, crowded by migratory passages towards the nearby Cesine wildlife oasis, in the wake of the indigenous tradition and the rural economy of Salento, the Masseria rises in total harmony with nature .


Borgo Segine extends into the lands of Acaya and Roca, where the more recent history of Salento is intertwined with its most remote secrets, crossing the charm of antiquity and the beauty of nature sublimating them in a contemporary architectural synthesis inspired by the historical importance of medieval village around the castle of Acaya , called “Segine”.

Made respecting the typical architectural dictates of agricultural buildings which pervade the entire territory and the idea of living in perfect harmony with the landscape in which it is immersed, it is to be considered eco-friendly. Thanks, in fact, to the use of materials such as stone, iron and wood and to the innovative choice but faithful to the past of a construction, which sees the symbols of tradition as protagonists such as barrel and star vaults, the double load-bearing masonry, supported by modern tools that allow maximum eco-sustainability :  a powerful 10 Kw photovoltaic system, a 16 Kw solar thermal system for the production of sanitary water makes it entirely self-sufficient.
