The property, with more than 6ha, is used as touristic facility and consists of an historical residence of 2.496sqm, dating back to the end of the seventeenth century, with independent apartment for the owners, annex composed of large restaurant and some bedrooms, church, independent villa and large area used, until not so long ago, as horse-riding centre with stables (about 99sqm), barn (about 467sqm) and other annexes dedicated to the activity (about 321sqm).
Within the historical residence, we find the reception, the restaurant (about 40 seats), the kitchen, some common living areas, 36 bedrooms with private bathrooms and an independent area used as owners’ house with 7 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms.
Next to this main building, we have an annex with reception hall (400 seats), perfect for events and banquets, kitchen and a total of 19bedrooms with bathroom set on the two sides of the restaurant.
In front of the restaurant we find a wide park, perfect for summer events, alongside with the other external areas, like the citrus grove, the small square in the middle of the historical residence and the wisteria arch, for a total extra capacity of 300seats.
The villa, of about 215sqm, includes a large kitchen, a living room and three bedrooms.
In the past, the property used to host an important horse-riding centre with stables, in which the athletes were prepared for national competitions too.
Thanks to its central position, between important historical centres of the Salento area and close to the sea, its large dimension and its layout, this property would be absolutely perfect as touristic facility. The presence of 2 restaurants and spacious and versatile outdoor areas makes it perfect for meetings, events and banquets. Also interesting is the possibility to reactivate the horse-riding centre, making the property a privileged place for the organization of important horse events and competitions too.
In a strategical position, equidistant from Otranto (25km), Gallipoli (26km) and Lecce (30km), and from the renowned beaches of both the Ionian and the Adriatic coast (reachable in 20minutes by car), the property is immersed in the typical Salento countryside. The closest airport is Brindisi, reachable in less than 1 hour (about 80km), while Bari airport is reachable in about 2hours (189km).
