For 15 years, this establishment has specialised in country holidays, and a warm welcome from the host family guarantees guests a relaxing stay in the countryside of Apulia. This 18th-century manor farm has been carefully restructured, maintaining its original stone architecture. Until the last century, it was used as a salt deposit for salt shipped to the old port of Villanova from all over the Mediterranean. Over the years, it grew in importance until it became the centre of agricultural and social life and a reference point for the local farmers. Inside the grounds of the farm, guests will find a little old country church with a cobbled floor, a vaulted ceiling and a stone altar. Renovated in 2007, this family-friendly country house hotel comprises a total of 10 rooms, including 5 apartments. Facilities on offer to guests at this air-conditioned establishment include a 24-hour check-out service, a TV lounge and a children's playground. It also offers a restaurant, WLAN Internet access, a car park and bicycle hire.
