Location and Surrounding Area. This marvellous masseria (farmhouse) is set in the middle of one of the most beautiful areas of the authentic Salento in Puglia. It is an area where the people still live traditional lifestyles and enjoy delicious, high-quality, local foods and wines. In addition to the stunning natural beauty and gorgeous beaches, the area is significant for its local archaeological finds.

The turquoise waters in the sheltered cove at Porto Badisco make for safe swimming and excellent snorkelling. According to Virgil, Porto Badisco was the site of Aeneas’s first landing in Italy after his escape from Troy but some historians dispute the fact and suggest the Roman harbour of Castro instead. Castro is a picturesque coastal fishing village with the historical centre up on the hill and the lively marina below. The nearby coastline is studded with pretty caves, perhaps the most famous being the spectacular Grotta Zinzulusa limestone caves.

The city of Otranto is offers all the splendours of an original Greek settlement. The city's story is perhaps best told in the cathedral with its large-scale mosaics dating back to the 12th century and the bones of the 813 martyrs displayed behind the altar. The city is set on the spectacular Adriatic coastline and also offers gorgeous, sandy beaches and lively beach clubs.

Beautiful baroque Lecce has to be seen to be believed. It's the perfect destination for wandering around the little lanes and admiring the distinctive 17th century architecture. It has a delightful historical centre and an excavated Roman amphitheatre.

The Masseria Poggiardo is just outside the village of Santa Cesarea Terme and about 15 km from Otranto. It is less than 5 km from both Porto Badisco and Castro. Lecce is about a half an hour drive (35 km). The international airport of Brindisi is about an hour's drive from the Masseria.
