There are also many small towns off the tourist trail worth visiting for their unspoilt hisotirc centers and unassuming genuiness.
Cooking courses - classes can be arranged at the masseria
Golf - there are 2 golf courses within easy reach, one 20 mins and another 1 hr drive.
Beaches and Boat Tours - the coastline of The Salento is long and varied, including white sandy beaches, karstic grottoes, chalk cliffs and salt-water lagoons. The closest beach is just 10 minutes away. Boat trips can be arranged by your concierge.
With the landscape of Southern Puglia being predominantly flat, it is ideal to explore the countryside by bicycle. Small roads weave through the olive groves and small towns, making it a popular way to explore for tourists.
