Nature reigns supreme in the beautiful farm of Otranto and the owners are trying to live respecting it: not using fertilizers for their garden, or herbicides against insects and prefer to have worms, snails and some mosquitos but also many butterflies, dragonflies, frogs, caterpillars. Masseria Prosperi is a boutique hotel surrounded by nature which offers its guests all the amenities needed for an unforgettable holiday, but adds a very personal flavor, which get a hint of the “life” of Mercedes and Antonio,
“Masseria Prosperi is a house where different thoughts and cultures meet and match with each other. But those who choose us has a common spirit. All this, you can enjoy it in the evening during a dinner together, and then meet again for breakfast or afternoon under the porch, between a glass of rosé and a vinaigrette prepared by Antonio – my husband – accompanied by lupins, bagels and our olives Celline. I do not know what makes us so special … maybe the love with which we do our work, perhaps the simplicity that surrounds us, or maybe just the need to find a contact with the earth and nature, of which we all need. ”
Puglia is always beautiful (said from a former ex-Milan) but Mercedes shows us three special moments to visit her:
Summer for those who love the heat, the sea, the good food and the friendliness of this land.
In spring and autumn for those who love a trip tied to the territory, its treasures and its history. For those wishing to experience a Puglia more “desolate” but extremely charming and real, in a mild, welcoming climate.
At Christmas, if you like the idea of long walks on the beach, coffee at the bar in the main square or a trip to Lecce between decorations and Christmas markets, and then retreat in the Masseria during an afternoon where you have a hot tea around the fireplace or relax between the heated swimming pool and turkish bath.
