Agritourism Malapezza

The farm was founded in the municipality of Melendugno in 1960. It is located in a unique atmosphere for relaxing in the shade of centuries-old olive trees. It has a strategic position: at 2 kilometres from the shore of Sant’Andrea, at 4 kilometres from Torre dell’Orso bay and at 8 kilometres from Otranto. Since 1983 it has become a welcoming and lush Agritourism and Agricamping.

The simplicity of hospitality of Salento

Agritourism Malapezza” takes its name from the namesake ancient farm. It has its roots in the hospitality offered by Salento people. The simplicity, care dedicated to the preservation of traditions, the typical local cuisine of Salento, music and conviviality are the beating heart of the entire Salento area and they reach their maximum expression levels in the ”La Notte della Taranta” that is Italy’s biggest music festival and one of Europe’s most important events dedicated to traditional culture. The Festival tours around Salento, normally culminating in a grand finale concert in the nearby town of Melpignano in August.
