The Ionian coast between Santa Maria di Leuca and Otranto (Regional Natural Parc since 2006) is spectacular for its breathtaking views, for the very nice towns of Novaglie, a little fishermen town with an emerald green sea, Castro an old town situated on a high cliff, Santa Cesarea Terme with many examples of eclectic architecture (more examples can be found in Santa Maria di Leuca), Porto Badisco which is thought to be the place where the epic Enea disembarked, and Cape Otranto, the more oriental point o Italy.
Otranto is important for its historical centre, for the castle and for the Cathedral, like a jewel box containing the famous tree of life mosaic.
Be sure to visit the sea caves along the coast around Santa Maria di Leuca and Zinzulusa Cave near Castro Marina.
If you prefer to relax we recommend the white Ionian beaches of Pescoluse, Torre Vado and Torre San Giovanni.
Further up to the North there is the picturesque fishermen town of Gallipoli, than Santa Maria al Bagno, Santa Caterina, up till the Natural Parc of Porto Selvaggio.
Very important to visit are Lecce for its Barocco architecture and the Church of Santa Caterina in Galatina, for the colorful frescos. The Sistema Museale in Ugento will tell you about the ancient Messapi civilization that populated Salento.

Masseria Saint Lucia, organic farm, wellness holidays, healthy eating, relaxation and eco-sustainability.

The Masseria is an ancient structure dating back in part to the fifteenth sec. dc, whose premises were used as stables, farm storage space, processing of tobacco, and included the house of the farmer or the settlers. A skilful eco- restoration supervised by the owners, Luciana and Danilo made it possible to give hospitality and tourism in this picturesque place steeped in tradition.
In addition, six acres of land belonging to the farm have been converted into a park and cultivations treated with biological methods.
Into the Farm’s kitchen the company produced vegetables, cereals, olive oil and fruit, are skillfully transformed into culinary delights for the guests.

The farm is located in the furthest edge of Salento, a few kilometers from the beautiful sea and the panoramic Capo di Leuca, in an area covered with olive trees, with ancient stone walls and quaint rural houses

The fortified farm consists of a spacious open court where in good season it is possible to have dinner and breakfast, of a tall tower where the owners' house and the reception office are, of two small cozy by two small rooms used as breakfast and dinner rooms and by a large reading room with tall star vaults (typical in this region).
Two double rooms for guests (all with private bathrooms and air conditioning) are located near the court and onto a fresh lawn, while four other bedrooms and the master bedroom suite is at the back of the court, shaded by a pergola overlooking a scented herbs garden.
All rooms have their own relaxing outdoor space with comfortable lounge chairs, table and chairs.
Outside the walls, with a nice walk, you can visit the park, the garden, the orchard, and the small wood where you can relax in the cool hammocks and deck chairs. Climbing the hill of Montesardo, without leaving the farm, you can visit the ancient oil mill located in a cave.

Un autre monde, l'authenticité de ce lieu restauré avec respect par Luciana et Danilo associée à la qualité de leur accueil nous ont permis de passer un séjour inoubliable. Nous avons été séduits par la cuisine de Danilo réalisée avec les légumes du jardin et par la gentillesse et le sourire de Luciana toujours prête à répondre à nos questions. De ce séjour, nous avons ramené quelques produits de leur cru qui nous permettent de prolonger notre rêve, dont leur fameuse huile d'olives. La variété des paysages du Salento, la plage Baya Verde de Galipoli avec ses eaux turquoises semblables à celle des Caraïbes ont largement contribué à notre bien être. Merci à Luciana et Danilo de nous avoir, un peu, fait partager un moment de eur vie. Translate this text

Wir erinnern uns sehr gerne an diesen Urlaub, obwohl er schon länger zurück liegt. Leider war das Wetter z. T. ungünstig und das Meer noch kühl, dafür hat in dieser wunderschönen Landschaft viel Schönes geblüht. Ein voller Ausgleich waren auch die herzliche Gastfreundschaft und Engels-Geduld von Luciana und Danilo, auch bei technischen Missgeschicken unsererseits...Völlig unaufdringlich werden einem Tipps für Touren oder kulinarische Genüsse in der Gegend gegeben. Dabei bietet schon Küchen-Zauberer Danilo ein „Programm“, für das man sicherlich länger suchen müsste. Wir wüssten nicht, bei welchem Urlaub der Geschmack der Köstlichkeiten und das Ambiente immer noch so viel Raum in der Erinnerung einnähmen. Nicht an alle Details, aber es bleibt ein angenehmes Gefühl bestehen, dass sich auch mit dieser Gegend unseres Planeten verbindet. Wer es transparent möchte oder sich dafür interessiert, der kann den Weg der Zutaten vom Garten bis in die Küche genauer verfolgen und ggf. auch selbst Hand anlegen. Fachkundige Erläuterungen von A wie Apulien bis Z wie Zwiebelstecken werden gerne gegeben. Vielen herzlichen Dank an Luciana und Danilo für diese wundervollen Tage! Irmi und Andreas Translate this text
