Countryside and sea, beautiful coastlines and ancient towns, stunning landscapes and unique architecture: Salento is a destination where beauty is combined with authenticity and limitless hospitality.
Beauty, authenticity and hospitality are, indeed, found everywhere: in the incredible mosaic masterpieces and the baroque signature style; in the proud roots of the ancient farms and stately homes; at point where the Ionian and Adriatic meet; in the fascinating nearness of nature found in vineyards and olive groves.
Castello Monaci is the perfect starting point to slowly explore this wonderful land between two seas.
Guests can easily reach the Ionian coastline, with its Caribbean-like beaches with turquoise waters, some of them very popular and others wilder and hidden. Little beaches can also be found along the rugged Adriatic coast where caves can be visited by boat.
But Salento is not only about the sea and sand: it’s also home to delightful, dreamlike old towns with lovely squares where time passes at a gentle, yet steady pace.
The whole of Salento is an unmissable attraction, together with its unique food and wine culture.
