  • There are no words to describe this place, I state that the holiday made in June is considered the most valid, because, certainly in high season will be very crowded.

  • The union between the Sea of Salento and this historic resort with beautiful stone palaces and suggestive alleys is a winner. Especially in the evening the resort has an irresistible charm.
