At the heart of Salento, just 15 minutes drive from Otranto and less than half an hour from Lecce is the beautiful, historic residence of Don Totu.
Hidden from view in a residential neighbourhood of the quiet town of San Cassiano, Don Totu is an 18th century palazzo that has been elegantly renovated by its owners, University Professors, Mauro and Chiara.
Here you are taken away from the modern world and into an enclave of relaxation and freedom amongst calm and verdant surroundings. Don Totu is stylishly decorated, featuring local ceramics, luscious linens and lovely works of art, collected by the owners on their travels.
Guests will discover a delightful courtyard with an ancient olive tree, a lovely pool and an orchard. In addition to a beautiful lounge there are a number of well appointed guest rooms featuring four poster beds, calming decor and contemporary bathrooms. There is also a small hammam and gym. Details such as the use of robes, beach towels and Wi-Fi are taken care of and breakfast is included along with an afternoon snack. Guests can even enjoy a nightly aperitif!
Whether you use Don Totu as a base for exploring, want to relax by the pool or watch the stars from the candlelit terraces you will be made to feel at home by the charming and attentive staff.
Get away from it all to the peaceful beauty of Salento and this hidden treasure, Don Totu.
