The garden of temptation
Large, quiet spaces...like our garden, with its flower-lined paths and the scent of lavander, rose, and citrus. If it's hot under the sun, retreat to the shade of the porch or take a dip in the pool at the center of the garden. In the evening, settle in to watch the spectacular sunsets from the elegantly furnished terrace.
At Don Totu, we take care of mind and body: escape into our intimate hammam, open only to guests, or work out your travel kinks in our fitness area with the best Technogym machines overlooking the garden.
A scrumptuous breakfast in the outdoor courtyard under the vaults of the portico or in the internal hall lined in Lecce's famous stone: you'll find a vast assortment of breakfast tortes and cakes, juices, jams, fresh dairy products, and cold cuts. At Don Totu Historic Residence, you'll be able to sample all the flavors of Salento.
For wine- lovers, we organize tastings led by a sommelier once a week!
