The B&B Il Gelso is a quiet villa in the Salento countryside, not far from the city, but in the tranquility of the countryside. Our main idea is to provide tranquility and respect for the nature. We have started a long and non-trivial journey towards the attainment of a passive structure, which does not take away resources from the environment, but the journey is still very long. Our structure produces fruit of all kinds, homemade organic jams according to ancient recipes and without the use of preservatives or solidifying chemicals, and allows us to accommodate animals. Within a few years we will complete a project for the construction of a structure equipped for the stay of animals, so that they do not necessarily have to follow their owners during the holiday, but can be welcomed in a green area.

Pur adattandomi a qualunque situazione sono piuttosto esigente, ma da Massimo e Roberto non ho dovuto adattarmi a nulla, la struttura era bellissima e dopo un piccolo problema per trovarla (i navigatori inviano gli utenti alla fine della vita, converrebbe segnare via Tiziano) abbiamo apprezzato la posizione che permette di scegliere all'ora di colazione quale luogo della puglia visitare non appena si ci alza dalla sedia. I gestori hanno un comportamento squisito e l'unico problema relativo alla colazione è il dispiacere che si prova ad alzarsi da tavola per abbandonare le marmellate realizzate con la frutta del parco e le torte preparate di giorno in giorno! L'unica accettabilissima pecca da segnalare è una bassa pressione dell'acqua della doccia al piano tavernetta, ma la cito soltanto per consigliare, da tecnico quale sono, di programmare l'installazione di una vasca con autoclave per servire una struttura che pur con sole 6 camere è veramente molto grande! In generale posso dire che Il Gelso è un'ottima struttura gestita in maniera eccellente!

The answer from the host:
Gentile Piergiuseppe, grazie della sua generosa recensione e dei suggerimenti. È un piacere leggere che si è trovato bene da noi ed anche leggere che il voto più alto è stato dato alla voce "gestori". Ci riempie di gioia sapere che il nostro lavoro è stato apprezzato. Per quanto riguarda l'errore dei navigatori, è vero, alcuni non riconoscono ancora la Strada Comunale Sant'Oronzo, che è il nuovo nome della vecchia via Tiziano. Su google, però, scrivendo bed and breakfast il gelso viene visualizzata una mappa corretta che conduce direttamente da noi, e che riconosce la strada comunale sant'oronzo. Per noi è difficile decidere come procedere, perché l'indirizzo esatto è Strada Comunale Sant'Oronzo. Auspicabilmente entro qualche mese i database dei navigatori si aggiorneranno ed il problema sarà risolto. Per quanto riguarda la pressione dell'acqua, la casa, come lei dice, è molto grande (due piani). Esiste già un'autoclave che interviene quando la pressione è bassa, ma ci mette un po' ad arrivare a regime. È qualcosa che conosciamo, e che non ci è stato mai segnalato come problema, ma ci stiamo già pensando, ed elaboreremo una soluzione quando ultimeremo la conversione dell'impianto al solare termico, cosa che richiederà un intervento piuttosto importante. Grazie di tutto. Ci auguriamo di poterla ospitare nuovamente in futuro. Massimo.

Posticino molto tranquillo, locali puliti, situato strategicamente per chi desidera visitare il Salento, buona, naturale, abbondante e varia la colazione da segnalare la cortesia e le disponibilità dei proprietari massimo e Roberto.

The answer from the host:
Buongiorno signora Lapolla, grazie di averci visitato e di aver trovato il tempo per lasciarci una recensione. Lei è stata una delle primissime clienti di pacchetti emozione 3, cofanetti per viaggi, con cui lavoriamo molto poco. Il suo pacchetto aveva un costo di 109 euro, e lei l'ha utilizzato nel periodo pasquale. Le siamo venuti incontro, pur essendo "chiusi rispetto ai cofanetti" in quel periodo, perché il suo buono scadeva. Al netto delle commissioni di emozione 3 (il 40%) l'importo che noi guadagneremo sarà di 65,40 euro totali per le due notti, circa 16 euro a notte a persona. Difficile immaginare un rapporto qualità/prezzo più alto, e ci dispiace che i due voti più bassi che ci ha dato siano stati dati alla struttura (ci ha scelto lei) ed al rapporto qualità/prezzo. In ogni caso è stato per noi un piacere ospitare lei e suo marito in occasione di questo breve soggiorno, e ci auguriamo di riaverla presto da noi. Massimo.

Area Campagna

The Valley of Cupa is the new tourist destination of northern Salento which includes the territories around Lecce (Squinzano, Surbiton, Trepuzzi Novoli, Arnesano, Monteroni, San Pietro in Lama, San Cesario di Lecce, Lequile, San Donato, Cavallino Lizzanello). Territories that maintain intact their genuineness expressed through the typical rural buildings, the secular olive trees and a natural and healthy landscape. Very characteristic are the historic centers, which with their architecture, crafts and gastronomy tell the ancient traditions and the rural identity of the territory. We are in the land that links its history also the flavors and knowledge, a history made by skilled craftsmen of taste and Crafts. The villages of the Valle della Cupa pullulan, in fact, of brilliant artists that have always been engaged in the processing and transformation of simple materials. Through laboratory experiences teach master craftsmen to shape the clay, sculpt and shape the soft local stone, creating works in papier mache using the materials available on site. Simple are also the products of the earth - wheat, olives, grapes, vegetables, fruit - that skillfully worked, according to ancient techniques, make it unique culinary heritage of the Valley of Cupa. In particular, there are two cultures that characterize the economy of the Valley of Cupa, its facilities and the residents themselves: oil and wine.

Moving in the Valley of Cupa land campaigns you are immersed in endless fields of olive trees, which impress with their twisted trunks as evidence of their centuries-old system, a reality to be preserved, because it tells the story of the territory, as well as churches, palaces and many architectural structures that make the Salento an important historical and artistic destination. And over the olive tree is the vine that characterizes the area: grape varieties, such as Negroamaro and primitive, which for centuries characterize the local production, but also national and international varieties, in recent years become part of our productions. A story is told by the ancient places of production, the many mills scattered throughout the territory, and the many wineries, as a backdrop to any itinerary that takes place in these lands. The enchanting land of the Valley of Cupa, rich in artistic and cultural sites, farms and villas, rural churches, the pagghiare and stone walls, involving tourists in festive rhythms of festivals and festivities received from the excitement of the heat local people.
