After the successful courses held between 2011 and 2016 we are pleased to welcome back the tutors from 'Chalk the Sun'. Guests can explore their creative potential in seven intensive days of writing, eating delicious home-cooked food, drinking local wine and swimming in the natural rock pool or simply sun lounging. Places are limited so click the link to the Chalk the Sun website for full details.

In 2016 Ostuni Council 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 Traiana' - Roman Emperor Trajan's road from Rome to Brindisi. 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, 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.
