Breakfast on the porch

You can have breakfast outdoor under a portico, between the scents of rosemary and lavender, facing a centuries-old olive tree. In case of bad weather, breakfast is served inside in a small room with a barrel vault of Lecce stone. Don Totu offers its guests genuine flavors and Mediterranean colors.

It is a feast for the eyes and a joy to the palate: from fruit tarts to all sorts of cakes; from homemade biscotti to muffins; from freshly squeezed orange juice to fruit blends; from small pastries to oven baked bread; from local Indian fig, blackberry, tangerine, grape jams to honey; from fresh ricotta to local farm cheese; from eggs any way you like them to cold cuts.

Cold beverages and homemade ice tea and fruit salads wait for you as you come back from a day at the beach. At dusk, Don Totu serves an aperitif on the terrace and, once a week, a tasting of local quality wines with an expert sommelier.

As the land steward found peace and quiet in the palazzo after a long day at work, so the guests will find peace and quiet after their tiresome day spent exploring beautiful Salento.

The palazzo is unique because it combines the perks of luxury & charm “masserie”, with garden and swimming pool, with those of historic homes, with ample common spaces – halls, library, terraces and internal courtyard – where guest can still have their privacy and enjoy the palazzo as a whole. All in a modern format, with hammam, gym and many exclusive services.
