Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Tenuta Centoporte is surrounded by olive groves and landscaped gardens – here you’ll find yourself immersed in tranquil natural surroundings. Despite feeling away from it all in the countryside, the lovely seaside town of Otranto’s just a five-minute drive away.

If history and culture are something you love to experience while you’re on holiday, this place should spark your interest – the estate takes its name from the ancient Abbey that once stood here, which was an important centre for Italian and Greek culture. Today the hotels whitewashed buildings and traditional dry stone walls take its place, but you still get a sense of the history entrenched in this region.

In the hot summer, the cool breezy rooms are a welcome respite from the heat. We love that the comfort rooms all have their own private patio and entrance from the garden – it makes it that much easier to nip back from the pool for your sun glasses! Speaking of the pool, it’s surrounded Mediterranean plants, sun loungers and parasols - it’s a lovely area to chill out, read your book or soak up the sun after a swim. With tasty snacks from the pool bar or maybe even a cocktail, it’s easy to spend the whole day here.

When it comes to food the chef focusses on making the most of the delicious fresh local ingredients. We loved it so much, we booked a cooking lesson at the hotel (payable locally), so we could recreate the memories when cooking back home. Other activities like wine tours and horse riding excursions are bookable locally or you can simply hire an e-bike, take a picnic and explore the surrounding Salento countryside.

Car hire is recommended for this hotel. Tenuta Centoporte is approx. 1 hour 10 mins from Brindisi Airport.

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.
