Wine Experience

a pochi km dal mare

Leone de Castris Wine Hotel is located in the “DOC Salice Salentino” area, few kilometers from the “DOC Primitivo di Manduria” area, hinterland of Salento, in the province of Lecce, only a few kilometers from the most beautiful beaches in Italy, such as Porto Cesareo and others along the Ionian and Adriatic coast. Here, the hospitality is enriched by new value and meaning, with experiential pathways characterized by the combination between food and wine, territory and history. The Hotel, son of the oldest winery in Apulia, Cantina Leone de Castris, is composed of 24 large and comfortable rooms, each one connected to the history of the most important labels of the Company. Lovers and enthusiasts, as well curious people and conscious travelers, will find in our Wine Hotel, in addition to simple accommodation offers, stories to live through the senses: flavors, aromas and visual suggestions that only the territory of Salento can give to visitors; all involved in authentic tales with vivid colors.

Das Hotel liegt circa 20 km von Lecce entfernt. Damit hat man eine sehr gute Ausgangslage für Erkundungen in der ganzen Umgebung, ohne jedesmal erst aus der Stadt herauszufahren und für Lecce selbst reicht ein Tag.
Das Frühstück war für italienische Verhältnisse in Ordnung, die Küche selbst von hoher Qualität.
Das Personal kümmerte sich vorbildlich um alle Wünsche.
