Masseria Fontanelle is located near Ugento, between Gallipoli and Santa Maria di Leuca, on the splendid promontory of the Serre Salentine. From this privileged position, you can admire the magic scenery of the Ionian Sea and breathe air scented by the salt and the Mediterranean scrub.
The oldest part of the compound was built between 1600 and 1800. Initially built as a convent, today Masseria Fontanelle lives a new life, thanks to a respectful and careful restoration. Within its walls, beauty, peace and tranquillity. Just outside, the thriving greenery of the Litorale di Ugento Natural Park, with its magnificent pinewood and a paradisiacal white beach stretching for over 8 km, protected by uncontaminated dunes. A location also known as the “Maldives of Salento”, for its crystal-clear sea with marvellous shades of turquoise, emerald and blue. Imagine the bliss of plunging into these waters every time you want!
To ensure guests top comfort and relax, the rooms can accommodate maximum two guests, with the exception of the three Junior Suites which can accommodate a third occupant in the second bedroom. Please note, given to our “unwind in peace” philosophy, children are admitted from age 12. Parents, we beg your pardon, and hope you understand this choice.
Should you be looking for an award-winning Family Resort, Vivosa Apulia Resort is just a few meters from Masseria Fontanelle. An Eco Resort with Spa, private beach and an infinite number of sports and activities for all ages. The perfect place for families to have fun together… and separately! Usually kids prefer the latter, and “ditched” parents enjoy relaxation and precious time for themselves!
