Sea, nature, wellness, good wine and excellent cuisine… what more could you ask for from a holiday?
This is what we found while staying in Masseria Fontanelle in Ugento, between Gallipoli and Santa Maria di Leuca, in one of the most enchanting corners of Salento. To welcome us, the intense scent of the sea of the Regional Natural Park of Ugento, with its white sandy beaches and the intense colors of the Mediterranean maquis but above all the warm welcome of the Director and all the staff of Masseria Fontanelle who literally pampered us throughout. our stay, from arrival to departure, with great professionalism and availability.
The Masseria, built between 1600 and 1800, recovered respecting the typical canons of rural architecture, is a real oasis of peace and well-being, with its well-kept gardens, welcoming rooms equipped with all comforts, 'area dedicated to sport and meditation, the swimming pool and the Spa created in an ancient cave where you can indulge in moments of pure relaxation.
The Le Serre restaurant, with its 0 km cuisine that uses the products of the organic garden cultivated within the Masseria, offers a unique culinary experience, made of authentic flavors and aromas, a legacy of ancient traditions but wisely renewed, with great care is also taken in the wine list proposal.
Let us advise you on the best wine to pair with your dishes, you will not be disappointed. For the occasion, we were recommended "Gloria", Primitivo di Manduria from the Vigneti Reale company, the flagship of the winery, with an intense ruby red color, the maximum expression of the most loved and appreciated native Apulian grape variety in the world. A wine that excellently enhances traditional Apulian and Salento dishes in particular.
And if you love to relax by the pool for a tasty aperitif, a sophisticated cocktail or a light lunch, the Pool Bar with Gin Corner will definitely win you over.
There is no shortage of proposals to spend pleasant evenings on the farm with live music, pizzica evenings, a cinema under the stars and a play room for lovers of board games.
