Holiday House 920

It was built in the old “stable” of the house, a place used for the residence of animals and wagons for the transport of wheat. A large entrance door allowed access, now transformed into a large light point in the kitchen.

The house has:

Five beds, including a double bed and two single beds positioned on the mezzanine;
Kitchen with hob and sofa bed;
Air conditioning;
Heating system;



It is a real dive into the peasant past where as soon as you enter the kitchen you can see the old grandmother’s cupboard (1920s) where you could smell the scent of freshly baked bread preserved in squared tea towels; the roof is completely in light wood where the baskets have become special chandeliers. The plate hung on the wall was made from the horizontal cut of an EPAL platform in which there are old plates, jugs and ceramic cups from the early 1900s when they were used as a “common plate for the whole family”. Going up the stairs to go to the sleeping area, small boxes appear which frame the canvases where you can admire glimpses of the historic monuments of Massafra. The bathroom was born on the ancient cistern-well attached to the house (now brought to light: a large tromp-ail that reproduces the water of the stream has been positioned on the bottom of the same), on the ceiling you can see a lantern from the 1920s which acts as a chandelier and a box of old ammunition that becomes a soap dish. Opening the bedroom door, you can see the pure white of the flanders blankets and the head of the bed obtained from the portals of a chicken coop set in the wall and completed with an old iron door from the 1920s, immediately give an idea of ​​what means recovery and recycling; this, especially when you look at the desk and bench made from the headboard and footboard of a wrought iron bed called “crstìdd”. On the mezzanine you can see the two single beds adorned with crochet blankets with lace and lace and a small bedside table obtained from the restoration of an old crate for the transport of “Dreher beer”. The color points are given by the woolen shawls that the grandmothers used to warm up during the winter months and which surround a scenario completely suspended in time !!
