"Le Pezzate" is the ideal location to admire uncontaminated places, taste the authentic, intense and genuine flavors of the Salento culture and also the refined traditions that go from the ancient Greeks to the Byzantines up to the present day. Only one in its kind, the Masseria, offers a great variety of environments, places, and services suitable for a relaxing holiday immersed in the colors and sounds of nature.
The Masseria "Le Pezzate", which dates back to V-VI sec, has been used until the 1800s for the breeding of sheep and goats. Located in the countryside south of Maglie, halfway between Otranto and Gallipoli, it has been completely renovated preserving the authenticity and the atmosphere of the past, while offering all the comforts necessary for a comfortable stay, and above all warmth, thanks to the familiar atmosphere.
The farm is developed in the shape of an "L". Through the entrance door you enter the courtyard, the center of the farm, where the rooms overlook.
