The resort: a charm of colours and scents
No one comes to Salento and leaves without first filling their eyes with this beauty. From Gallipoli to Punta della Suina with Sant’Andrea Island in the background to Punta Pizzo passing through the beautiful Torre del Pizzo, the coast alternates Mediterranean scrub with fine white sand and rocks that plunge into the sea.
You can try all kinds of aquatic sports activities, snorkeling to discover our wonderful seabed and trekking, bike trails and horseback riding to discover the hinterland. Our holiday village unfolds over a vast expanse of rich vegetation where even a simple walk can instil a feeling of calmness and well-being in this natural wonder.
You can watch the spectacle of the sunset over the bay each day from the terrace bar of Punta della Suina, a palette of different colors every evening which you can watch as a privileged spectator from the front row.
Your holiday will be an experience to be lived with all 5 senses as the special guide we have created to reveal all its wonders suggests. We will take you to discover the Salento we love and want to share with those who reach this land and are willing to understand its nature to the fullest, rich in history, flavours and traditions.
This is the child-friendly resort you need for a family holiday. The mini and junior clubs will get children and teenagers to experience new things about nature, with creativity and in a perfect spirit of sharing with many new friends. Our resort is the perfect destination for your escape from the city, away from the chaos, to slow down and finally let yourself go along with the rhythm of the crashing waves.
