Surrounded by 50,000 olive trees, with a wonderful pool & not far from the coast. The excellent restaurant means great choices for food-lovers!
Masseria Bosco has huge character and personality, massive popularity with clients, and amazing abundant cuisine. It is just fabulous, that's a fact!
This Masseria is in one of the lesser-known parts of Puglia, in a rural setting, surrounded by 50,000 olive trees, and with a wonderful swimming pool. 2km from Avetrana and more or less equidistant (43km) from Brindisi, Lecce and Taranto, it is perfect for exploring some of Salento's "hidden " Puglia, as well as its important historic cities. The beautiful Ionian sea, with its sandy beaches, is also only about 8 km away.
A great choice for food-lovers, the cuisine, based on local and Pugliese recipes, is superb, plentiful and flavoursome. Very well-known locally, the Masseria has a well-deserved reputation for the fantastic seasonal food it serves, which is often quite unusual and always with the focus very much on 'slow food'. Still a working farm, with 100 hectares of olive trees, lemon and orange groves, an uncle cultivates mostly organic vegetables, which end up on the table, in the restaurant.
