Hundreds of acres of ancient olive groves surround the lovely agriturismo, Tenuta Monacelli. The hotel is divided between the two manor farms that make up the historical olive growing estate, that dates back as far as the 15th century. The main reception, large swimming pool, bedrooms and restaurant are located at Tenuta Monacelli with more rooms a five-minute walk apart through the olive groves at Masseria Giampaolo. The simple, yet elegant rooms each have unique furnishings and retain the traditional features of the local masserie. 

This family-run property offers guests a friendly welcome and a chance to experience rural Puglia at its best. Take a walk through the unspoiled Mediterranean landscape that surrounds the complex with meadows, woods and olive groves. In a great position for exploring Puglia's surrounding sights, with the city of Lecce is just ten kilometers away and the wonderful sandy beaches and turquoise Adriatic are close by, under a mile from the hotel.

Salento is the name given to the southernmost peninsula of Puglia where the Itria Valley ends and is home to some pretty whitewashed towns such as Gallipoli and Ostuni. The beautiful city of Lecce is also well worth a visit to see the fantastic, flamboyant baroque architecture and Roman amphitheatre. As the peninsula is narrow the beach is never far away and here some of the best beaches are to be found with white sand and crystalline waters.

Inghams operate a telephone Rep service in Salento.
