Welcome to the Masseria Bosco di Makyva

A unique place in the heart of Salento where you can relax by reading a book, strolling in the shade of leafy oaks or lying by the pool and where you can taste the typical products and recipes of the Salento tradition in our restaurant.

Swimming pool

The outdoor swimming pool, surrounded by the greenery of nature, offers the opportunity to relax, in an almost surreal peace, and enjoy a magical silence. This allows, even in August, to stay away from the noise of the crowded beaches and enjoy the cool relaxation of the countryside. Traditional dry stone walls delimit the swimming pool whose use is reserved exclusively for our guests.

An oasis of peace surrounded by nature!
I stayed at the Makyva Wood with my family, the staff welcomes customers with care and is really helpful. We with a small child were looked after and we did not miss anything! Excellent cuisine, beautiful pool area and garden. It is also a stone’s throw from the beautiful Salento beaches that are easily accessible. Highly recommended for both a romantic getaway for couples and families!
