The accommodation

Masseria Galatea is a family run agriturismo close to the best localities of salento: Otranto, Gallipoli, Santa Maria di Leuca, Lecce

It is surrounded by nature, where you can experience the beauty of Salento, its cultural and culinary richness, its wholesome soul, a place to relax and feel right at home!

Only 4 double rooms (Levante, Tramontana, Mezzogiorno and Ponente), each one 35 square metres, with all the home comforts you could need, from private bathrooms with walk-in showers, to mini bars, air conditioning, Wi-Fi, bath and pool towels and access to the farm's beautiful courtyard.

You'll wake up to generous and hearty breakfasts, with sweet treats, homemade jams, natural drinks, and other farm produce such as the organic extra virgin olive oil, tomatoes, typical bread and seasonal fruit.

Upon reservation, our guests can enjoy in our restaurant dinner with a menu full of typical delicacies, 0 km and of biological origin.

If you are interested in staying for dinner in the farmhouse, our cuisine is homemade, typical Salento. We are very careful to use seasonal products, mainly from our fields or local farms.

We will be open for dinner, and in any case our guests can freely decide to dine with us by reserving a table day by day.

Outside you'll find an infinity swimming pool exclusively for guests, where you can relax and read in total peace and quiet, or admire the intense Mediterranean colours of the surrounding countryside.

Visitors to Masseria Galatea can admire the soul of the farm, a pomegranate grove, an age old olive grove, a large caper area and an educational vegetable and herb garden.

The educational farm is open to children and adults, and offers workshops, educational gardens, outdoor games, cookery classes and show cooking, and activities with animals, for participants to experience the simple and genuine life of the countryside. There are also initiatives that connect guests with the region's people and traditions, in a continuous exchange of knowledge and visions, such as guided tours of other local farms.

In your free time, Masseria Galatea offers activities to explore Salento's beauty such as boat trips, bicycle hire, trekking and other outdoor fun.


We also offer horse riding, a way to live the area in a sustainable way. The riding school is located just 3 km from the farm, in Alessano.

Masseria Galatea is the ideal agriturismo for families or couples looking for a rural break, for total relaxation and privacy, just a few kilometres from the sea.

Hi, my name is Angelita and I am 38 years old.
In this photo I am with my husband, Pasquale
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.
