Experiences

Salento, a land of enchantment
Stay in historic buildings and typical farms Masserie

You’ll stay in an ancient building in the center of Lecce which, thanks to a restoration work, has recovered the ancient beauty and all the original charm of the building. Precious feature of the Palace is the luxuriant American vine that surrounds the internal courtyard and the magnificent terrace, from which guests can admire, and almost touch the monuments of the city. Then you’ll move to a typical Salento farmhouse. Immersed in the green of the holm oak woods and the fields of ancient olive trees, the Masseria is an ancient residence which, thanks to a careful renovation, has regained its original splendor. Here, in addition to enjoying the splendid salt-water pool, you can rediscover the well-being and harmony that comes from the balance between mind, body and spirit through poolside yoga classes. Personalized massages and trekking routes in a unique land surrounded by unspoiled nature.

 

 

Salento flavors
Olive oil tasting and typical products

Visit to a farm that has a lot to tell, many anecdotes handed down, many historical figures who have been linked to this place. Even kings and saints have visited this company in the past, but the story they like most is the one linked to the land: it has been cultivated for almost a thousand years. The farmer is believed to be the custodian of the Apulian agricultural heritage. The wines, oils, cereals, legumes and preserves that are produced here reflect the character of the area and speak of sun and sea, land, passion, history and hospitality. Following the guided tour of the cellar, tasting of typical products: two wines to choose from a wide selection, some Evo oils, citrus and other products of the local gastronomy accompanied by the typical friselline and tarallini. Throughout your stay you will be delighted by dinners with typical products grown in this land.

A land of culture

A land full of culture, you can get to know this ancient territory through guided tours with dedicated professionals, who will make you retrace the customs and history of the ancient tribe of the Messapi, the splendor of the ancient villages, the art of beautiful cities such as Lecce, Gallipoli and Otranto .
