Angelita and Easter are very good hosts. The farm is really well maintained, clean, of a unique beauty. Everything's perfect. Not to mention the magnificent dinners in the inner courtyard of the Masseria, where we were able to taste exquisite and well presented dishes of undisputed quality, all cooked day by day.
Thanks again, guys. We'll be back soon! Joseph and Serena

We spent 11 days in this magnificent farmhouse. Beautiful and quiet place with an excellent restaurant where the traditional dishes, made with excellent raw materials, are very well cared for.
Angelita and Pasquale are kind and attentive to their guests and their children are fantastic.
The farm is located halfway between the Adriatic coast and the Ionian coast, a few minutes from the beautiful sea of Salento.
We had a great time: it was our first time in Salento but certainly an experience to repeat.
Valeria, Sergio, Ludovica and Fara.

The place is lovely, surroundings were pleasants, the breakfast was delicious and our hosts were definately awesome. Go there without any doubt, this is the best option available!
We have been to other good places during our stay in Italia, but this "Masseria" was the best. The work which has been carried out, rebuilding the Masseria from scratch in 10 years is breathtaking. Pasquale and his family have put a lot of courage in it and the result is really worth it. Our room was cosy, the swimming pool perfect for a bath in the morning and the homemade juice for breakfast was real luxury.
Our only regret is not to have stayed there any longer :-)

I have been managing Masseria Galatea since 2014 along with my husband.
As well as we welcome the guests, we are responsible for communication, we take care of the crops.
It was a desire to to pursue a passion which led me to run an agriturismo.
Our guests especially like the warm family welcome.
