The 'Franchina' Cottages are two gracious little houses, made out of dry stone, called 'trullo' or 'pajara' but different from the Alberobello Trullo.We rent the cottage "mare verde" that has a covered veranda equipped with bbq,dining table, chairs, outdoor shower,and an hammoch under an old olive tree.

The rustic garden, located on a terraced down hill that reaches a pristine reef, is filled with secular olive trees, holm-oaks and Mediterranean plants. It's equipped with outdoor barbecues, pizza-oven & hammocks, offering to the guests splendid shady corners to relax.

The common terrace is equipped with sun beds. The sea below, visible from the covered verandas where one may spend a comfortable portion of the day, is crystal clear. You can easily access the sea by stone pathways leading directly to the living reef. There are no sand beaches at this particular portion of the coast, however sand beaches are accessible 13 km away at Santa Maria di Leuca, the extreme point of Italy (finibus terrae).

The Puglia/Molise region

Salento is a peninsular region of south-eastern Apulia bordering on east the Adriatic Sea and on west the Ionian Sea. A territory with a natural tourist vocation capable to stimulate and transmit different messages enchanting with the myths and signs of ancient peoples, to interest with the testimony and cross-breeding of cultures of the Mediterranean.

Along the coast, you can admire the continuous alternation of soft sand and a low rocky coast on the sea, high and steep on the Adriatic coast, low and soft on the Jonian. The inner part of the territory, you can see huge fields of olive trees, interspersed with vineyards, which product fine wines and oils.Who discover the Salento appreciates the magical atmosphere, the many wonders to discover, the hot sun, the blue sky, the cristal sea, the Baroque art. A mix of art, culture, tourism and traditions that makes this land unique for those who live there and great for those who visit it.

Trekking: For hikers there are many beautiful trails along the cliffs overlooking the sea, from which you can access the crystal clear sea in many isolated places.These trails and paths were mapped by smugglers of salt that long time agò, gathered salt in the numerous pools of the cliff.This area is famous for this salt routes“vie del sale”and the newspaper" Bellitalia" has even dedicated a special insert in June 2013

Then there is that part of Greece called Grecia Salentina: situated in the heart of the Salento peninsula is an area where lives a community that preserves the language, culture and traditions of Greek origin.

Tricase

Feast and festivals in Salento: The rituals, festivals, sows and the memories of this earth that combines culture and tradition, sacred and profane, Christianity and Paganism and that found in the patron saint the item to venerate and worship.

These events are a deep and vital as is the tradition of Salento, how far are the sources, so old that it lost in the mists of time

During the period from 15 July to 31 August all the villages of salento celebrate their festivals, some sacred (religious procession), others pagan with music and dancing.

In these festivals you can eat foods cooked by the women of the village, but what is more surprising is that all (old, young people and children) are in square dancing to the rhythm of overwhelming pizzica (an ancient dance of courtship).

To see the “pizzica dance” or “la notte della taranta a Melpignano” go on 'youtube'.
