Masseria Rauccio can be reached through a country road bordered by dry stone walls, and is surrounded by an expanse of olive trees, a typical rural landscape of Salento. The property is located not far from the silvery beaches and crystal clear sea of the small seaside resort of Torre dell'Orso, one of the most popular destinations in the marine area of Melendugno, along the Adriatic coast of Lecce.
Its location allows guests to easily reach the nearby towns rich in history and culture: 8 km away is the small town of Melendugno, while just 25 km away is the baroque atmosphere of the historic centre of Lecce; about 20 km away is Melpignano, famous for the Notte della Taranta, and the Greek-Roman town of Martano; 30 km away is the maze of baroque alleyways of Maglie and 18 km the ancient seaside town of Otranto.
The nearest airport is Brindisi, 170 km away.
The typical courtyard building of Masseria Rauccio preserves the original aspects of the 16th century. The structure, wisely renovated and enlarged, offers the guests the bright and elegant interior spaces of the rooms harmoniously mixed with the original parts of the ancient building, where the Lecce stone, the ancient fireplaces and the quietness of the countryside take you gently back in time.
The 30 rooms are located in the complex to the west, shaded by eucalyptus trees, and are the result of the renovation and expansion of the old stables. The rooms open onto the courtyard with a cosy covered patio. The Lecce stone and natural wood furnishings offer guests a bright and welcoming atmosphere, rich in history and modernity. They are all double rooms and the different types are suitable for families with children, couples and newlyweds.
Masseria Rauccio guests who request a place at the Lido Zenzero Beach can enjoy the beautiful beach of San Foca, on the Adriatic Sea, with its crystal clear water (limited availability, service bookable on site).
Just 5 km from the hotel, the small town of San Foca offers visitors a wonderful, well-equipped coastline that boasts one of the largest marinas in Salento, from which tours to discover the coastline and caves depart. The fine sandy beach with calm and transparent sea is suitable for families with children and the spectacular rocks of San Foca are a must for breathtaking dives and snorkelling.
Open for dinner, Masseria Rauccio's restaurant offers guests a unique sensory experience, where traditional flavours and the scent of the sea come together to create a creative take on local cuisine.
