In Salento the sun kisses you all year. The charm of art, the excellent Mediterranean cuisine and sincere hospitality welcome you to a dreamlike landscape, from the Adriatic coast with the marinas of Melendugno, Santa Cesarea Terme and Otranto, to the Ionian sea that bathes San Pietro in Bevagna, Campomarino of Maruggio, Torre Colimena, Porto Cesareo, Portoselvaggio and Gallipoli. Here the Middle Ages are colored by the Orient and old nursery rhymes in “griko” resound in Grecìa Salentina, as in Melpignano, where ancient rhythms become contemporary music on Notte della Taranta. You are in the green peninsula between two seas, a magical land where mysterious dolmens and menhirs point the way, hidden among olive trees and dry-stone walls in the countryside, where ancient masserie rise today and become fascinating accommodation facilities. At the pace of trekking, go to the discovery of early Christian churches and underground oil mills. In the villages the artisan papier-mâché and stone shops are revealed and on the table are all the flavors of Salento, to be accompanied with excellent local wine.
