In addition, guests can take advantage of a special space to spread linen, costumes and clothes. Obviously sheets and towels are included in the service and nothing is due for cleaning the room. For those staying more than a week, sheets are changed. The room is very large and has four beds, so we can comfortably accommodate both a couple and a family with two boys. The whole estate is immersed in the peace and silence of the Salento countryside, one kilometer from the town and three from one of the most beautiful and fascinating seas of Salento, that of Porto Badisco. Ideal place, therefore, for those who want to rest and be in contact with nature. For those who love "night life", no problem since Uggiano la Chiesa is in an ideal position to easily reach all the towns of the coast or the interior. Surrounded by two gardens, pine and fruit trees (from which you can get a lot of hands: recommended figs and figs of india) for 3000 square meters, guests can enjoy hammocks under the pine forest on which to relax with a good book or for take a nap with the only noise in the background of the cicadas; Antonio and Dolores (the owners) put at the guests' disposal guides and tourist maps, a wide list of places of art to visit and gastronomic (all experienced in first person) to taste, games of society and small library for those who had not more space inside the suitcase. The animals are welcome, especially if educated (in the estate are also other guests and it is right to take this into account) and small size, bearing in mind that the house is in the country where they constantly wander wild kittens in search of food. During the summer we organize some evenings of PIZZICA in the pinewood with a Salento teacher

About Antonio Tresca
My name is Antonio and together with my partner Dolores we live in Vicenza, but about ten years ago we fell in love with Salento and Salento people. We decided that one day we would have moved to this corner of paradise (at least for us). We did what we did and we found what we now call Tenuta Volpesca (from the union of the two surnames). In this estate we have a lot of space, both inside the big house where we got the guest room, and in another mini apartment always devoted to tourists who also want the kitchen or the wider spaces. In addition, we have invaded PIZZICA PIZZICA, this dance that enters the blood and begins to slide in the veins until they can no longer do without it. When our guests ask for it, we organize with a dance-room teacher in our pine forest to allow a first approach to this overwhelming way of dancing. My profession is a trainer and a freelance practitioner in the holistic field or better in the field of alternative medicine. I lead a training school for holistic workers, I organize personal growth courses and I hold individual sessions. I am interested in all forms of art (from cinema, to painting, to photography I practice in person, to writing). My partner Dolores is a professional nurse. We are both hardcore readers. During the summer we organize PIZZICA in the pine forest with a Salento teacher
Antonio Tresca purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2010
Why Antonio Tresca chose Uggiano la Chiesa
The reason we decided to put our space at our disposal is the pleasure of allowing people to fall in love with Salento, as has happened to us. That is why we are excited to share our knowledge and experience. Also, without ever being intrusive and in the utmost respect for everybody's needs, we easily make friends with our guests with whom we end up sharing evenings, parties, food and dances.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
The room can be booked from 26 June. Depending on the needs and the wishes of the tenants, we are always present and eager to get to know the local beauties. Guests will also be able to provide the fruit of the trees in the surrounding grounds. Peace and silence interrupted only by grabbing the cicadas. The night sky starved to the unlikely. The air is healthy. The desire to live and to rejoice in the Salento population; Their cordiality and reception capacity make everything amplified. All the guests are always coming home happy and eager to return. For those who want music and movement, the land of the salento seems to have been born to meet this need: the TARANTA (or better known as the PIzzica) in the summer impacts and wherever you can listen and dance the crazy rhythms of this ancient culture completely revolutionized by interpretation Of modern singers and musicians. From the artistic point of view, the area offers continuous and enviable opportunities: from the fascinating beauty of Lecce with its Baroque architecture embellished with local stone, the richness of the churches of the Salento area (Otranto, Galatina, Brindisi), archaeological sites characterized by Mysterious Dolmen and Menhir passing through all the historic centers of every single village in the area. In addition, nature has been generous with this area and the inhabitants have been able to preserve it: the wild coast of the Adriatic is opposite the "Maldivian" beaches of the Ionian zone, from ornithological wealth to flourishing and lush vegetation. An exquisite gourmet quality characterizes the whole area, who wants to experience finds bread for his teeth

Accoglienza ottima di Antonio e Dolores. Stanza un po' spartana ma comoda.
Il posto è a pochi minuti di auto da Otranto e da Porto Badisco. Nelle vicinanze ci sono degli ottimi agriturismo. La stanza è pulita, con un letto molto comodo ma poco illuminata e un frigo un po' rumoroso. Il bagno pulito con box-doccia ampio ma non fornito di asciugamani per la doccia.
The room is surrounded by peace and nature. A beautiful pine forest with hammocks is available to guests as well as fruit trees from which guests can draw heavily. Just three kilometers away is the sea of Porto Badisco, one of the most beautiful in all of Salento, to be experienced both on the beach and on the rock. For those who want to leave the car aside, the distance can be filled either by bike or on foot with a half-hour walk. Just one kilometer away, the village of Uggiano La Chiesa offers what is needed for everyday life: supermarkets, bars, bakeries, newspapers, etc. The beautiful beaches (blue flag every year) of Otranto can be reached within 10/20 minutes by car. As for the sea, anyone who loves the rock, will have fun along the entire southern coast that leads to Santa Maria di Leuca, where they meet delicious places for bathing and / or to visit. From the quiet Santa Cesarea to the "ancient" Castro, and then to the Cholo and finally to Leuca. In these areas you can book boat trips to swim in otherwise inaccessible places or see the coast from a privileged point of view. Those who love the beach can take advantage of the territory otrantino (San Foca, Roca, Torre dell'Orso, Santo Stefano-Giorgio-Andrea, etc.), or go to the Ionian shore (Gallipoli and the Maldives of Salento, Punta Suina, Punta Prosciutto, etc) in about 45 minutes by road. Even in the middle of August, if you want and you are motivated, you can reach isolated places where you can get away from the throng of summer. From the logistic point of view Uggiano la Chiesa is in an ideal position because besides being very close to the sea, it is also close to the most interesting places to visit in Salento. Lecce, one of the most beautiful cities in Italy, is easily reached, Otranto is just a stone's throw away and all the other smaller towns, but no less fascinating, where in summer parties, festivals and the Pizzica are played, they are close at hand, including the town of Melendugno where the night of the Taranta takes place. Also in the area, for those who want a more cultural approach, there are archaeological sites and architectural itineraries linked to the Lecce Baroque and its stone, absolutely worth visiting. Finally, one of the attractions for which it is really worth coming, is the local cuisine. Masserias, farms, fish restaurants offer both high quality delicacies and typical Salento cuisine at prices that are more than affordable.
