Framed by a fabulous sea and ringed with beaches of
incredible beauty, Apulia is the heart of the Mediterranean.
It is a region sculpted by time and traced by the wind,
which blows the sweet, rich perfumes of the Mediterranean
meadow over a land whose atmosphere is unique in the world.
It breathes 5000 years of history….. and mystery.
granite formations, groves of cork oaks and ruins of ancient
cities, uninhabited valleys and lively towns all fit
together like tiles in a mosaic. A land of discovery. In the
delicacy and beauty of its craftsmanship; in its culinary
tradition; in its strong aromatic wine; in its folk
festivals; in the character of its people, reserved yet
generous, can be traced ancient traditions passed down from
generation to generation, and still with the ring of
authenticity. A region that deserves to be loved and
explored, all year round, not only in the summer.
The southern point of Apulia, which includes the area from
Brindisi to Saint Maria of Leuca is called "Salento". One of
our primary necessities these days is to be able to find a
location where harmony and balance between development and
uncontaminated nature is a reality.
Il Salento offers this.
The air, with the constant breeze, continually
renovates the atmosphere, also helped by the fact that
factories do not exist here.
The land, offers an original and fragrant vegetation
where protected animals abound.
The sea is not polluted, thanks to the beneficial
substances of an indented coast, the sea currents create a
balanced and protected eco-system.
Quality of life is achieved by the low density of
population, by the modest size of the villages and towns, by
the vast spaces available to man.
