Dating back to the 16th century, the farmstead became a fortified complex with watchtower in the Renaissance. Since then, decorative details and symbols from the past have accompanied the development of this place, today a striking, quality accommodation facility.
The rooms take their names from characteristic places in the area, have air-conditioning and en-suite bathroom with spacious shower cabinet.
The salt-water swimming pool, evocatively lit by night, is a relaxing corner where guests can eat fruit, sip cocktails, sunbathe on the sun loungers or enjoy the shade of the parasols.
Ancient traditional recipes are offered in the homely atmosphere and pleasures of breakfast: the unmistakable aroma of the typical local pastries, the wholesome jams, the fragrance of friselline pepper biscuits, bread, cakes and fresh fruit.
The agriturismo is about 2 km from the shores of the Alimini Lakes and the 4 km of white beaches at Torre dell'Orso. Lecce, capital city of Baroque Salento, is just 25 km away and Otranto, the city of the martyrs, is at just 9 km.
