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 :-)

We decided to stay in this beautiful estate. Excellent welcome, lovely place. Large, cozy, air-conditioned room, exceptionally clean, comfortable bathroom and linen set that also includes towels for use in the pool. Inside the structure there is a private swimming pool surrounded by greenery and olive trees that can be enjoyed without limits throughout the day, as it is also illuminated at night. At the poolside there are enough sun loungers and umbrellas to accommodate all guests. The owners are very cordial and extremely available, always ready to satisfy every request in the best way. Breakfast is genuine, the fruit offered is collected daily by the owners and is all coming from the fields surrounding the structure including homemade jams. In addition, every day homemade sweets prepared in the buffet are prepared in addition to other delicacies that are then served at the table during breakfast. The location is ideal, is located in the open countryside a few kilometers from a small town that offers essential services such as pharmacy and is a few miles from the best beaches of the place as well as from Leuca, Pescoluse and Torre Vado. Recommended for those who want to spend a few days of relaxation, nature and the sea in this wonderful area of ??Salento.

Beautiful structure in the Salento countryside and a few steps from the sea. We were greeted by a young couple with their children. Everything perfect: abundant breakfasts with products of their productions (a positive note to homemade fruit juices!), Delicious cakes and vegetables and fruit of the garden in the farm. The rooms are wonderful, spacious, bright and super clean. The pool is superb, a place of true relaxation. Good guys, keep it up. With love. Patrizia from Milan.
