Discover our structure

Witness of the passing of time, now shines with love, Peace and Hospitality.

The story of the Padulicchie Farmhouse, nowadays known as “La Turrita”, is unraveled trough centuries, leaving tangible traces of its past and reliving in modern times in a whole new guise. Originally built in the sixteenth century, the structure has undergone significant transformations over the course of time, turning from a simple facility into a majestic, fortified tower lookout during the Renaissance. Over the centuries, several architectural details and historic symbols melted with the rocks, telling the story and the evolution of this place.

Nowadays, thanks to a thorough renovation work, the Farmhouse looks like an enchanted oasis, in which every corner is permeated by a magic and welcoming atmosphere, full of details celebrating its rich historic heritage. The light colors, the embracing scents and the suggestive lights harmoniously blend together, creating a timeless scenery that mesmerizes visitors. The calm and beauty of the surrounding nature are the calling-card of our authentic and welcoming Salento, which embraces its guests with the warmth and the hospitality typical of home.
