I have been going to Italy for years, and every time I go, I make sure to stay in an Agriturismo.
Agriturismos are family owned farms transformed into B&Bs and they really never disappoint! It is usually great value for money, you have the opportunity to try local cuisine and spend time with the family who will give you all the area insider tips! It is like stepping into a movie.
Tenuta Yala is lost in the middle of the vineyards and only a 15 minutes drive into Gallipoli which offers plenty of entertainment and restaurants.
The place is just dreamy…
It is good to note that the family doesn’t really speak English or French, so a lot of comical miming was necessary at times. But you will still make friends!
The rooms are big and beautifully decorated.
The swimming pool is the perfect place to make the most of the sun.
And the flat roofs of the farm are the perfect spot to enjoy the sunsets!
They also have a restaurant which offers simple but delicious local cuisine. Unfortunately I didn’t take any picture as I was too busy stuffing my face with pasta.
