Lama di Luna is a unique farm located close to Bari, Puglia (Italy). The farm was built during the 18th century and was inhabited by Coloni and Mezzadri, (Farmers and Share-Croppers). Today it is totally restructured after three years of work, with techniques of bio-architecture and feng-shui in the total respect of the place and its history. It is deep in 190 hectares of natural landscape, olive-groves, cherry orchards, almond groves and vineyards, all biologically cultivated and certified AIAB-ICEA. The guest-rooms are the old residence of the farmers; today they are spacious and bright.
Each room has a fireplace, that looks on to the farmyard and are provided with warm water and heating, thanks to 48 solar panels; that are dated back to the 1800’s . The beds are made with heart-wood of pine or olive-tree or brass-made, with natural latex mattress, unbleached cotton sheets and towels, olive-oil soaps; each detail has been meticulously studied to let the energy move on to permit the guests to feel the ancient savours. In the total respect of the old structure and of our great rural building tradition, the farm has been restructured with mortars and all natural materials.
Recycling materials such as; old planks, bricksand frames that are dated back to the 1800’s and other material such as the red and yellow clay. Beds are northern placed and the sharp edges have been replaced with rounded edges, because in the natural state everything is round, everything is harmony and everything comes back to everyone. The forty chimney-pots, the scattered ‘trulli’ and the cave, they all tell the story of the people that lived, worked and rested in this beautiful and magic place. There’s a large library hall that invites reading and relaxation. While on the veranda, which looks on to an infinite landscape, guests can have breakfast with the typical products of Lama di Luna.
