A timeless space of comfort and well-being for your holiday.

A late-18th century mansion designed to send you travelling back in time between granaries, fireplaces and cisterns, now cleverly transformed into a modern Turkish bath and swimming pools. Ancient star-vaulted roofs open to skylights lit by the warm southern sun of Salento in the morning, and the magical starlight shortly after sunset.

Mansions of “Don Fernando 1938”

Don Fernando 1938.
An everlasting memory of a place that brings mind, body, spirit together.

A three-year long restoration and enhancement project coordinated by Grazia, “the lady of the house”, has given rise to the two mansions in which today we can finally pamper our guests. All the new spaces, renovated with nothing but passion, are witnesses of the rural life and economy where nothing was wasted.

Discover Salento

Welcome to Salento, an enchanting place where the sun kissing your skin and the wind blowing through your hair merges with the charm of art, the excellent Mediterranean cuisine and a warm hospitality, guiding each visitor through their journey from the splendid Adriatic coast to the beautiful white beaches of the Ionian.
Where you can breathe a scent of oriental atmosphere: in the Medieval Santa Cesarea Terme.
A mystical land surrounded by olive trees and stone walls, where dolmen and menhir show the way through the Salento countryside, reaching Castro and Santa Maria di Leuca, where nature gives its best with marine caves of unforgettable beauty.
After that, a journey within a journey begins with a stroll through Lecce, exploring the Baroque, between churches and palaces embedded in stone, courtyards, secret gardens, with a surprising Roman amphitheatre in the heart of the city.

Una meravigliosa magia!
Siamo stati 4 giorni in questo splendido posto … e che dire, siamo stati trasportati in una realtà altra fatta di dettagli ed accortezze che sono un piacere vero per gli occhi, il corpo e il cuore. Tutto è curato…è una dimora che esprime qualcosa, non banale, e poche se ne trovano così!
Meg, Roma
