Via Salice Avetrana sp 107 km 5,500, 73015 Salice Salentino (Lecce)
Immersed in a stretch of olive groves, the Ancient Masseria San Giovanni stands only 9 km from the beautiful sea of Porto Cesareo and from other famous seaside resorts.
The building dates back to 1709 as it is registered in the Catasto Onciario of Salice Salentino of that age. The plan retains the typical plant with inners but the building is unique for the big octagonal hall which offers an unusual eight ribs vault and an original and stately fireplace, today made into a restaurant dining hall.
A suggestive chapel dating back too to the beginning of 1700 originally used by all the workers around there in order to celebrate is another singular feature. Today the building called Casale S. Giovanni-holiday farmhouse- Residence negli Ulivi has 17 flats with private bathrooms with all modern conveniences, with a reception room and two little rooms with typical stellar vaults which preserve their ancient beauty.
The old farmhouse is surrounded by a large park, lawn with beautiful cocus, two swimming pools, one for adults and one for children, with a large solarium with sun beds and umbrellas, lush pergolas, a pond of water lilies and a roaring waterfall.
At 10 minutes from the house, at an affiliated riding school, you can make magnificent horseback riding immersed in the Mediterranean and the sea shore. For children are available pony rides with horse-drawn carriage.
Available in the structure, at guests' disposal, mountain bikes, foosball, table tennis.
In the beautiful city of Lecce, 20 km from the structure, you can make routes to discover the beautiful Baroque Leccese. Near the capital, visit to the Natural Park of Cesine, the picturesque town of Acaya, the fortified city and other beautiful sites.
