I remember when I was a child my grandfather would host friends and relatives in our home during the summer months.
In those days the term “agritourism” (farm house) was completely unknown to my family, but we had a strong desire to share the beauty of the land and its landscapes.
Vigna sui Laghi consists of several self-catering apartments, located within the winery Lanzolla Masseria, which has been run by my family for over forty years. The term Masseria is common in the south of Italy meaning ‘fortified farm’.
When my grandfather purchased the land it was planted with tobacco but later he decided to plant a vineyard and create conditions to be able to provide adequate irrigation for the fields. As a result two lakes were created from a natural source.
Today, the Masseria consists of 110 hectares of which 25 hectares are vineyards, ten are citrus groves and five are olive groves. The remainder of the land is left uncultivated so that the natural vegetation of the area, consisting of Mediterranean scrub and oak woods, can develop freely.
Alongside the main farmhouse there are Tibetan goats that live together with the hens in an ancient olive grove; you can see wild horses that roam freely in the gullies and whilst walking on the farm, our faithful dog Baldo will accompany you,
Thanks to the wonderful natural environment and Vigna Sui Laghi’s comfortable apartments, our farm is appreciated by travellers from all over the world.
My name is Enrica I am 32 years old and together with my two older sisters live in a wonderful corner of Basilicata, between vineyards, citrus orchards and olive groves with the Mediterranean ocean on the horizon.
As well as producing wine, I have a diploma in piano and I love to share my passion for nature, for good food, and of course …art.
I like swimming, travelling and hosting people from all over the world. I love to provide a haven for guests who are looking for a relaxing and stress free environment.
Join me, here, the air smells of orange blossoms and the Mediterranean.
