“Live the beauty of Salento.” With this motto travelers are greeted and treated to a 5 star luxury resort Furnirussi Tenuta, located in Serrano – the heart of Grecìa Salentina. Here’s another Argo preview of a marvelous stay, a hidden gem, not so many have heard of.
Furnirussi Tenuta is an exclusive place dedicated to wellness, organic food and relaxation in the middle of a 4500 trees plantation, the biggest in Europe. Only 12km from Otranto, Furnirussi offers 24 Junior Suite equipped with all luxury comforts. Of course the usual suspects are present in the bedrooms on the ground floor, which create a delicious court, embellished by a rich Mediterranean vegetation.
The hotel has also two elegant Suite Superior with terrace of 70 sqm, large bathrooms, cromo-therapy showers and panoramic bathtubs. However, what’s not “usual” is the surrounding countryside, the fragrances, and especially the wonderful nature which scents everything at the resort. And the food.
Furnirussi Tenuta offers its guests a culinary adventure powered by fresh local products, organic and seasonal fruits cultivated within the Furnirussi estate and fine dishes prepared by the master chef. Moreover the hotel has an exclusive SPA with massage rooms, Kneipp bath, Jacuzzi and Hammam build within the calcareous stone. Outside, the swimming pool with biodesign technology, is surrounded by a tiny camphor wood and is perfectly integrated with the surrounding landscape.
In case the imagery tantalizes you, it’s true, this is the ideal place to enjoy the bright sun of Salento, in the silence of the countryside, for a total wellness of body and mind. This is one of those places where the hype is actually less enthralling than the actual experience. After all, we’ve been here to the region before. Serrano, a small rural village surrounded by olive groves, overlooks the Adriatic coast of Salento.
Here, the same traditions that show devotion to St. George the Martyr, to this day hint at the deeper cultural mystique of this part of Italy.
For the beachcomber among you, you’ll find a blue flag of Europe 2013 beach to perfect that tan. Furnirussi Tenuta, you’ll find, is an unforgettable stay on the heel of Italy. We leave you appropriately with a taste of this magnificent stay, in Italian, of course.
