The Casa di Giò Bed & Breakfast: the perfect location for your adventure in Salento

Salento is a fascinating sub-region of Puglia that enchants its visitors with its sunny climate and the crystalline waters of the Mediterranean Sea. But that’s not the only reason that Salento is such a special place. Its rich culture and art tell of a millenary history.

To discover all that Salento has to offer, there is no better place than the Casa di Giò. This bed and breakfast is located in a privileged location, which allows you to easily reach the most famous places and tourist attractions in the area.

Among these, Pescoluse is undoubtedly one of the most popular destinations. Here you can admire white sandy beaches and a crystal clear sea that seems to have been painted by an artist.

But Salento is not just the sea. The area is also rich in history and culture, as evidenced by the numerous watchtowers that dot the coast dating back to the 16th century. Among these, the Tower of Masseria Borgino is one of the most famous and can be visited. But that’s not all: the characteristic dry-stone houses, called “pajare”, which are found among the centuries-old olive groves of the area, represent another unique attraction.

The coast is known for its karst phenomena and natural caves, including the famous Grotta Zinzulusa in Castro. But there’s more: many other smaller caves arise on the Ionian and Adriatic side, which can be visited by boat. Among these, the Grotta delle Tre Porte and the Cala dell’Elefante, located in the Tricase area, represent two obligatory stops.

In short, Salento is a magical place, which offers a wide range of attractions for all tastes. Thanks to the strategic location of the Casa di Giò, everything is easily accessible and close at hand. Don’t miss the opportunity to discover one of the most beautiful areas in Italy!
