Masseria Chicco Rizzo is one of the most ancient farmhouses of the Salento region. It is located in Grecia Salentina, between Lecce and Otranto, and has survived over the centuries keeping untouched the appeal of the rural world. In the Eighteenth century it was used as a staging post for the horses and now it welcomes all those who are fond of nature, organic farming, cultural and sustainable tourism.
Masseria Chicco Rizzo is a hamlet that develops on four sides round a large common green space. It is located in the typical countryside of the Salento region surrounded by 14 hectares with olive groves, from which an excellent organic olive oil is extracted.
