Opening by Summer 2019
Tenuta Donna Maria is an organic farm of about 180 hectares of woods and arable crops. Vegetables and fruits are also grown, with specialized productions of olives, almonds, pomegranate, figs, quinces and various vegetables typical of the area. The entire structure is fueled with clean and sustainable energy thanks to a photovoltaic and solar thermal park.The farm is located in the splendid setting of the natural reserve of San Giuliano, just a few minutes’ drive from Matera and a few meters from the reservoir of San Giuliano. Built in the 1950’s to provide water for the intensive farms of the Metaponto plain, it progressively transformed into a natural habitat for dozens of different birds and wild animals, and a rich natural vegetation which is a mixture of native and non-native species. All this has created a unique landscape in our region, an oasis of peace and wellness just a few kilometers from the European Capital of Culture 2019.
The newly renovated “Il Melograno” farmhouse comprises 10 rooms, each with its own bathroom, and can accommodate up to 25 people. Although the hotel has been conceived for nature and country lovers, modern facilities such as internet, hairdryer, underfloor heating and air conditioning are present in all rooms. Prices include full breakfast and free access to our SPA and other facilities. There is a disabled access room with bathroom. Breakfast is included in the price.
The restaurant “Il Rosmarino” serves the typical vegetarian and vegan cuisine, using strictly organic products from the farm, and catering the rest from nearby farms. Our main focus is on freshness, seasonality and especially on the origin and quality of the produce. Our restaurant is available to our B&B guests. External clients should book in advance, with priority to those using regularly our SPA and pool and other facilities. It is also reserved for those attending any of the activities offered at the Tenuta, such as workshops and seminars.
