Description

History: Falco is an ancient farmhouse, which was built between the 17th and the 18th century and was originally used as a hunting lodge by a noble local family. Abandoned for many years, part of the building has lately undergone a conservative renovation with the intent to maintain all the original architectural features. Natural materials, such as lime and hemp, have been used.

Location: Set in the middle of the hilly area of Serre Salentine, this old farmhouse is located in the countryside of Ruffano - Contrada Muto, in a strategic position to reach the sandy beaches of the Ionian sea as well as the beautiful rocky coast of the Adriatic sea.

House: the dining room welcome guests and gives access to all the other rooms. The build-in stone kitchen has its independent entrance from the terrace, as well as, from the dining-living room:

-on the left a double room with queen bed (150cm)

-on the right a double bedroom with its own bathroom/shower, a further double bedroom and a bathroom in common use with the bedroom with queen bed.

Vaulted ceilings and “cocciopesto” floors characterize the house which, having retained its original appearance. Furniture has been chosen due to its priceless materials referring back to the local tradition: the cupboards are covered in papier-mâché of Lecce, the bed in white linen and the chandelier is a piece of illuminations. The design of the furnishings adds, also, a note of innovation to the traditional values of Salento.

Part of the garden, which embraces the house, is paved with ‘chianche’ (tufo stones) and furnished with outdoor tables and chairs. Furthermore, a gazebo, sofas where one can sit, read and be caressed by the countryside breeze. In addition, a Jacuzzi (2x2mt) for those who prefer to stay home and relax or cool off after a day at the beach.

Personal note: Surrounded by the typical landscape of Salento, among little stone houses, rough-hewn stone walls and olive groves, Falco is a perfect location for anyone who wishes to spend holidays immersed in the tranquility of the countryside and in contact with nature.

The historical centers of the nearby villages preserve the Salento art and culture. Green itineraries are copious: excursions in the countryside, walks in oak and holm oak woods, cycling routes adorned by the Mediterranean vegetation and, one of the nearest attraction, the Astronomical Park “San Lorenzo”: less than a kilometer from the property, with observatory, planetarium and museum, it’s the biggest in Apulia and represents the perfect place for both children and adults.
