Where we are

Via San Giovanni n. 7/A - Otranto (Lecce)
+ -


The apartments are located 200 m from the beach, to the north of the modern part of Otranto and just about ten minutes’ walk from the old town.
The area is well provided with shops lying just next to the apartments, supermarkets, a chemist, the post office and a cash point.
Guests will enjoy the cool, magnificent pinewood, located inside the residence.

Just a few metres from the apartments, on Strada San Giovanni, lies an ancient underground oil mill, in the central hall of which stands a large pillar with several niches about one metre deep. According to some scholars, this rocky environment has medieval origins, dating back to the period of Italo-Greek monasticism originating from the east. It was, however, used as an oil mill, a fact confirmed by the traces of the Calabrian press and by container tanks which were used to store olives and olive oil.

Such underground mills, also called trappeti, were very popular in Salento during the period and form part of the rich cultural heritage of the area.
