No Single Supplement

We never charge a single room supplement.

Small & Friendly Groups

Our group sizes are usually between 8 and 10 people.

Sights to savour along with the turquoise sea and long sandy beaches of Puglia include the handsome Baroque cathedral in Otranto, with a mosaic floor to rival Ravenna, and the city of Lecce’s more than 40 churches and a noble palazzo built in the 17th and 18th centuries. South of Lecce, the landscape flattens and the sky opens out.  Acres of olive groves and vineyards extend between dry-stone walls.  The coastline of turquoise sea and red cliffs combine to form a dramatic backdrop – the perfect spot for a week to relax, rejuvenate and improve your Pilates .
