S.P. 358 Otranto-Uggiano, casella postale 36, 73028 Otranto (Lecce)
Surrounded by the colours and the scents of the Salento countryside, just 2 km from the beautiful historic centre of Otranto and the sea, the agriturismo stands on 20 hectares of farmland covered with olive trees, cultivated fields and Mediterranean shrubland.
Born 23 years ago from the Merico family’s love for the land and their roots, in addition to agriculture (the farm produces organic extra virgin olive oil, certified by Bioagricert), La Fattoria also offers a restaurant, classes on the environment and food, and a range of other educational activities.
There are a range of accommodation options available to guests: bedrooms with bathrooms, independent bungalows surrounded by olive trees or fully-equipped apartments/two-room apartments with views of the communal outdoor swimming pool. The salt-water pool includes a whirlpool and a spacious solarium.
The restaurant serves a variety of typical dishes from rural Salento, prepared using the farm’s own organic produce: from vegetables to meat and cheeses, from extra virgin olive oil to digestifs. Breakfast comprises fresh milk from the farm’s cows and tarts with homemade jams.
Guests can visit the farm's pigs and cows (and watch the milking), as well as the mini zoo with ponies, donkeys, horses, Tibetan goats, swans, guinea fowl, pheasants, peacocks, ostriches, deer and many other animals.In spring, the educational farm offers workshops for children.
Otranto is a popular tourist destination: old and rich in history, the town overlooks the Adriatic and offers some 25 km of coastline, a combination of sandy lidos and cliffs overlooking the sea. A trip to the Otranto-Santa Maria di Leuca Coastal Park is highly recommended, along with the Alimini Lakes, the Baia delle Orte with its bauxite lake, Porto Badisco, Santa Cesarea Terme, Castro and the Zinzulusa Caves, and Lecce.
Inform the agriturismo of any animals at the time of booking.

A visit to a restaurant in unique surroundings. You can choose to sit outside under olive trees or in picturesque tents.
The most important, great food from regional products. One tries to serve only from own production. The price/performance ratio is remarkably good!
An unforgettable evening.
We will definitely come for dinner a few times at the end of May, beginning of June this year; we are already looking forward to it!

It's been two years that I've been in apartments for weeks and I have to say that we've always had a good time. Although the apartment has a kitchen .. we have chosen to make colazilone and dinner in the farm. I highly recommend it ... homemade and genuine products of their land and abundant. You eat really well especially for those who want to eat salentine foods.
