In the heart of the Grecìa Salentina, near the astonishing Salento sea and surrounded by untouched countryside, the Masseria Bosco di Makyva has been carved from an antique rural building, dating back to mid 1800, to be transformed into a welcoming country hotel. A careful restoration was able to maintain the appeal of the antique vaulted ceilings and stone walls, while the extension of the building hasn’t hidden the true nature of the Masseria which has kept intact the archaic flavor of wood and stone.
It consists of 30 Standard Rooms and 5 Makyva Rooms, the latter being part of the original building. The rooms are equipped with all comforts and offer private garden or ample balcony, from which one can admire the green and silent stretch of olive groves raising mightly in the 25 hectares of the Masseria’s ground.
Traditional stone walls embrace the swimming pool which can be enjoyed exclusively by our resident guests.
Located btween Otranto and Lecce, it is only about 4 Km away from the seaside.
Spacious and elegant hall, large and bright drawing room with its characteristic vaulted ceiling, free internet wireless connection, library and TV. Our guests are welcome di take a walk in the grounds of the Masseria or relax reading a book under leafy oaks.
