An ancient mansion of the 17th century, converted into a hotel, with a separate apartment for the owners.

The estate includes a building with a large restaurant and other premises, a church, a detached villa and a large area, which until recently was used as a riding club, with stables (about 99 m²), barn/hay storage (about 467 m²) and other facilities. premises (about 321 m²).

The old house has a reception, a restaurant (for 40 people), a kitchen, guest common areas, 36 rooms with private bathrooms and a separate area for the owners, with 7 rooms and 8 bathrooms. In the building adjacent to the historical residence, there is a reception hall for about 400 people, which is ideal for banquets and ceremonies; kitchen and 19 rooms with bathrooms.

In front of the restaurant there is a large park — a great place for summer events, for which other outdoor areas can be used, such as a citrus grove, a small square inside the historic residence, a park with an arch of wisteria, which can accommodate an additional 300 people. The villa is approximately 215 m² and has a large kitchen, living room and three bedrooms. In the past, the estate housed a solid riding club with stables, where athletes prepared for national competitions.

The villa and grounds of the riding club and stables are in need of regular maintenance and some other work (painting). The barn/hay storage is in need of repair. Large spaces, both internal and external, being in good condition, can be expanded and improved.


The homestead has a convenient strategic location, large area and excellent layout make this property attractive for tourists/hospitality. The presence of two restaurants and large versatile outdoor areas create all the conditions for meetings, ceremonies and banquets. And the possibility of restoring the equestrian club can turn this estate into a privileged place for organizing important events, horse races.

Location and nearby infrastructure

The estate is strategically located, equidistant from Otranto (25 km), Gallipoli (26 km) and Lecce (30 km), as well as from the famous beaches of the Ionian and Adriatic coasts (both can be reached by car in 20 minutes), in countryside of Salento. The nearest airport is in Brindisi, which can be reached in less than an hour (about 80 km) and Bari (189 km) in just over two hours.

      How to buy property with Tranio

      Send us an enquiry with an approximate description of the property or investment project you’re interested in.

      Meeting the partners

      After clarifying your enquiry, we will introduce you to our partners and/or local agents.

      Offer selection

      We will help you to select suitable options. Tranio does not charge a commission for this — the property price remains the same as if you contacted our partner directly.

      Viewing tour

      You then view the property or properties you have chosen. Our partners or agents from Tranio's European offices will meet you in situ.

      Transaction closure

      Having chosen the best property, you will sign the sales or investment agreement (for development).

      • Can I get a mortgage abroad?

        It depends on the country. For example, German banks willingly offer mortgages to foreigners at 1.5-2 % per annum with LTV up to 70%. Spain offers less favourable terms: the minimum rate for foreigners is 2.5% per annum. The situation is different in Greece: although the law does not prohibit banks from issuing loans, in practice, Greek banks don’t issue loans to local nor foreign property buyers. You can learn about the mortgage terms in your preferred country by contacting Tranio’s local agents.

      • How does the purchase procedure work?

        The purchase procedure depends on the country where you buy property. Generally, after choosing a property you need to sign a preliminary agreement with the seller and carry out a due diligence of the property by checking the relevant documents and the property's technical condition. After that, all parties sign the sales agreement and the notary registers the transaction. As a rule, the purchase registration costs amount to approximately 10% of the property price.

      • Can a residence permit be obtained by buying property?

        In some countries it is possible. Residence-for-property purchase programmes are known as Golden Visas programmes. Greece, Spain, Latvia, and Portugal offer the most popular Golden Visas in Europe. The Greek residence permit is the cheapest and can be obtained by buying a property worth at least €250,000, while organising all of the documents costs about €19,000. Certain countries offer citizenship to property buyers — for example, an investor can get their hands on a Cypriot passport by buying a property worth at least €2M.

      • How does Tranio make money if your service is free for the clients?

        We share the commission, which the buyer or the seller (depending on the country) pays to our partners — foreign real estate agencies. The price of this service is the same as if you contacted the agency directly — this is an important condition and applies to all of our partnership agreements.

      • Who guarantees the transaction security?

        The transaction security is guaranteed by the notary who draws up the sales agreement and checks the information on the previous and current owners of the property, any outstanding restrictions, mortgage, and third-party encumbrances. Tranio is not responsible for the parties involved in the transaction.
