Beautiful and quaint agriturismo, with a great view of the Tower of Emiliano which you can walk/hike up to from the place. Rooms were clean and comfortable and the food was amazing. Highly recommend getting the breakfast/dinner along with the room, what a great value. Close to Porto di Badisco and Otranto, Lecce and other attractions. We stayed there 3...

The Tenuta is set in a lovely peaceful position overlooking the sea and offers a simple, clean, hospitable and delicious retreat from the coast. The young staff are warm and kind and generous. The restaurant is clearly a destination for locals and tourists looking for, and finding, genuine food from their farm. Don't miss the opportunity to eat here. Incredibly...

Value for money, genuine food and hospitality, amazing location! Unfortunately we stayed only one night, but we had the chance to taste their "cicoria" and their cheesecake. They're incredibly kind. When we left I forgot my jacket there and they sent it to Barcelona where I live! We fell in love with Salento.

This agriturismo is located in one of the best spots along the Otranto-Leuca coastal road, just south of Otranto. Accomodation and food are very good, and personnel friendly and helful. Views are beautiful. The place is very relaxing and quiet. Rooms are large. To be recommended.

The first thing you notice about Tenuta Sant'Emiliano is the breathtaking view of the sea, beyond the lush grean fields. On the left, there's the famous Saint Emiliano Tower, which the masseria is named after. The owners couldn't have been more warm and welcoming. Antonio and Giusi made sure we felt comfortable and shared stories of the local history. Her...

We spent six days at the Tenuta Sant'Emiliano near Porto Badisco on the Salento coast at the end of June. The setting is beautiful in an area that is minimally developed. The view over the fields leading to the sea a few hundred meters away was a joy to see at every mealtime. Our room was very comfortable and furnished...

“We were in room 1 at the back but were fine - perhaps rooms near the main car park had sea views”

“In the tourist season, I'd imagine the room we stayed in (directly across from the back of the restaurant) could be noisy at the weekend.”
  • The sunset view. How could you not feel inspired?
  • The front of the restaurant and the patio area.
