While the above-referenced price of $3,350.00 / person is based on double bedroom occupancy for 6 nights, it is also possible for three people to share a room (at a lesser cost), as well as for one person to have his/her own room (at a higher cost). Additionally, in the event guests wish to arrive a few days early, or remain at the hotel for a few days after the trip ends, it is also possible to arrange this with Italian Enthusiast Tours so you can secure the group rate for any extended stay. Please discuss your desires with an Italian Enthusiast Tours team member.
The Masseria we utilize on the Salento Sensation Tour is located in the heart of the province of Lecce. Masserias, which are like plantations, are common in the south of Puglia, and historically, they were self sustaining, in the sense that they grew their own vegetables, made their own wine, housed their own livestock, and often even had their own school and church on the premises. Today, many Masserias have turned into hotels, and many still operate in similar ways.
The Italian Enthusiast, Anthony Barbuto, will be present with you for most of your trip, to participate in all the fun and excitement.
