Finishes and architectural elements also common to island and Hellenic peninsular locations. In the seventies, on the south side of the building (the most private), a large patio was built and annexed to the original building, where guests can spend time also appreciating a certain privacy guaranteed by the large surface area and architecture, from the small lounges and tilting deckchairs scattered there. The building falls within the courtyard area planted with olive trees, agaves and pittosporum, extending over 2,300 square meters, entirely protected by fencing. Guests can access the aforementioned area, by car via a remote controlled sliding gate (there is another gate with manual opening).

TO VISIT: MANDURIA The town, located in the northern Salento, is equidistant from Taranto, Lecce and Brindisi. it is also known as "Città dei Messapi" and "Primitivo". The name Manduria could derive from the Indo-European mandus which means "horses" (the Messapians were skilled horse breeders) or much more probably the etymology of the word recalls mand-Uria that is forward to Oria, a town bordering Manduria and political capital of ancient Messapia; according to this line of thought Manduria represented an outpost between the Messapian center and the enemy Taranto which was the capital of Magna Graecia. Founded by the Messapians around the 10th century BC and faithful to Athens, the attacks by the Spartan militias led by King Archidamus, who in combat in front of the walls, perished there in 338 BC (Plutarch, Parallel Lives), and later destroyed by Quintus Fabius during the second Punic War (mentioned in Ab Urbe Condita - Tito Livio), still bears numerous testimonies of its ancient past, including the megalithic walls (5th-2nd century BC), built on the moat that surrounded the city and the necropolis ( VII century BC).An important monument of the Messapian era is the Fonte Pliniano (surveyed in Naturalis Historia - Plinio il Vecchio). Among the main monuments in this area are the Romanesque collegiate church (better known as the Mother Church), the medieval Jewish ghetto , the clock tower, palaces with a noble appearance built in various periods and features of the ancient Messapian walls. Recently some excavations have brought to light tombs, vases and coins of the Roman period; this has happened also other times given the millennial history of the city. Of particular interest is the visit to the local wine cellars where it is possible to appreciate the famous "Primitivo" of Manduria. ORIA Situated in the hilly area of northern Salento on the border with the Murgia, it was an important Messapian and later Roman center, the city is known in the Middle Ages for its Jewish community. Oria is located on the highest hillsides of a hilly cordon of ancient fossil dunes in northern Salento, which give it a dominant position on the surrounding Salento plain. Not far from the route of the ancient Via Appia between Brindisi and Taranto, Oria is 35 km from Taranto, 32 km from Brindisi and 45 km from Lecce. Monuments and places of interest: Frantoio Ipogeo The oil mill of Oria or hypogean trappeto, represents the last traces of the flourishing rural civilization of the XIV century. Castello di Oria: it was a welcoming place for kings, princes and knights; in addition to those invited to Frederick II's wedding, we recall that Queen Maria d'Enghien (1407), her husband Ladislao king of Naples (1414), princess Isabella di Chiaromonte and king Ferrante of Aragon (1447) stopped by; the Oria Castle, declared a National Monument, was sold on 2 July 2007 to the Borgo Ducale srl company. Door of the Jews. Also known as Porta Taranto because from here we headed towards the Ionian city, it is one of the 3 city gates (one of which is no longer in situ). The door, which leads to the Giudecca of the Jewish community of Oria, gives access to a tortuous medieval quarter, with small houses, shops and hidden balconies. The Tournament of the Districts draws origin from the announcement that the Emperor Federico II wanted to emanate in 1225, during a period of permanence to Oria. Athletes and knights belonging to the four districts challenge each other in the tough medieval tests valid for the assignment of the "Palio" area. A wonderful show of colors and sensations that takes advantage of the high patronage of the Presidency of the Republic and that for some years has been combined with one of the national lotteries, thanks also to the twinning with the cities of Jesi and Palermo. An unmissable event that is repeated every year - from 1967, in the second weekend of August - to relive one of the most fascinating and mysterious pages of the history of Puglia. GROTTAGLIE Rich in history and natural beauty, about 25 km away, the municipality of Grottaglie (from the Latin Kriptalys, a name that emphasizes the presence of caves in most of its territory.) With the many sporting, cultural and voluntary structures present on the territory, is one of the most active centers in the Province of Taranto, but is famous throughout the world especially for majolica. The tourist attraction of the Ceramiche district is also strong. The ceramics craftsmanship is particularly important in the city, so much so that an art institute is also active which trains students in this work. Among the peculiarities of the Grottaglie ceramics are some objects including: the capasone (large container that serves to preserve and keep in good condition the wine or oil), the ciarla with lid (jug with two handles that originally had in the XVIII century) century an ornamental function), the srulu, a sort of ceramic jug in which it was used to put wine in water, and its variant "lo srulu a segreto", "the pumu" (pomo), an object in clay enamelled in the shape of a pine cone or bud, which is placed at the corners of the balconies of the Ionian town: this object often appears as an ornament on the corners of the balconies of the houses in the historic city center. Of great notoriety and collecting interest are the ceramics of Grottaglie from the 19th and 18th centuries. Noteworthy is the Ceramics District, located south of the historic center, it has been the main place of residence and work of the small ceramic artisans since the 18th century, today there are still some small artisan and manufacturing activities dedicated to the manufacture of ceramics. MARUGGIO The town was founded between 870 and 963 in a hidden position within a natural depression so as not to be very visible from the sea and therefore to defend itself against Saracen attacks. Maruggio was a feud first of the Catenian family and later, starting from 1130,year in which Roger II united the duchy of Puglia to that of Calabria, giving life to the Kingdom of Sicily, he was in possession of the De Marresio (or Marrese). With the 16th century a long period of wealth and tranquility began for the country. In the sixteenth century Maruggio was elevated by the Knights of Malta to a magisterial command and in the same century the observant friars and the Augustinians also settled in the country. In the second half of the seventeenth century, under the Commendatore Gregorio Carafa, the town began to expand even outside the walls and the new area was called "Borgo" or "Brulo". In the town two-storey mansions were built and the facades of ancient houses were embellished with balconies. On February 20, 1743 the Nardò earthquake also affected Maruggio, destroying the Romanesque rose window of the mother church, later replaced with a baroque style window. The Knights of Malta ruled Maruggio uninterruptedly from 1317 to 1819, when the commandery finally disappeared, after having already been suppressed on 2 August 1806. In 1819 Maruggio became an autonomous municipality.More
