Surrounded by the unspoilt countryside of Salento, a few minutes from the historic center of Alessano, and 10km from the strip of S. Maria di Leuca, the Southest town in Eastern Italy, the farm holiday is the ideal place to spend your holiday with tranquility and relaxation.
Around the 40s here tobacco was dried, now the farm holiday will welcome you with a cozy fully restored dining room and a large outdoor area where you will enjoy an intimate and familiar flavor.
The cosy rooms, next to the main building, are carefully furnished in ancient style and surrounded by graceful gardens.
In the dining room you will enjoy delicious traditional dishes from Salento, recipes handed down from generation to generation. At the farm, familiarity is a must and you can dine with our family once we dealt with our duties.
The Agostinelli's composed by Franco and Anne, who are the actual founders of the Agriturismo, and their two daughters, Laura the oldest and Mariantonietta (Mietta)
This farm is a family business so that for the whole stay with them, you will be treated as an integral part of the family.
Every evening, when commitments won't take all the time, you will have dinner together and Franco will tell you
about all the curiosities of the place and about the most beautiful places around such as marinas and the hidden
sea, places known only by people living here. Anna will
give you some precious suggestions about the delicious recipes, while Laura and Mariantonietta will serve you in a very friendly and polite manner, typical of the Salento region.
This family decided to undertake this activity with no hotel-like foundation, with no "protocol": love for this land, for the wonderful places, the pleasure and wish to make you taste the traditional delicious dishes, much friendly entertainment, passion in running their company that, year after year, is growing...
