A few hundred meters from the coast, there is our masseria, a short distance from the others called Nociglia (to the sirocco), Torre Nova (to the west), Càfari (to the north), Torsano and Sciogli (to the east), and from the well-known equipped park of Porto Selvaggio. We reach it from the Gallipoli-Porto Cesareo coast road (S.P. 286), just before the tourist village of Torre Inserraglio, or from the Tarantina road (S.P. 112), taking the road that connects this with the coast road. It is less than 6 km from Nardò. Half hidden by tree vegetation, it was once a fundamental point of reference for those who went down to the sea.
Masseria Nucci is a beautiful tastefully farmhouse renovated maintaining the rustic style that makes it so unique. The property comprises three main blocks: the tower where are placed the three Superior Rooms on the first floor (double and two quadruple), the family room called ‘il contadino’ which consists of a small apartment on the ground floor featuring a double room with sofa bed, a single room, bathroom, kitchen and outdoor patio; the Deluxe Double Room, also called ‘il custode’, located on the ground floor, consists of a double room with sofa-bed, bathroom and kitchenette. The common areas consist of a large garden, a large porch with facilities and a jacuzzi on request.
A newly converted farmhouse that feels effortlessly like home, surrounded by rural simplicity and red soil. In our place, hospitality is a natural attitude. As it has always been in constant mutation, Galeta Masseria offers the right setting for socio- cultural side activities, organizing workshops and events and supporting sports tourism to represent Salento not only as a destination for the Italian summer, but as a real place of growth and contamination where to live unforgettable experiences in every season of the year.
A colossal tower stands on the Arneo, is that of Giudice Giorgio, one of the most wonderful farm-towers in Salento, a magnificent example of a historical period fundamental for the agricultural development of this land. Mentioned by historical sources as early as the fourteenth century, it reaches its maximum splendor during the 1500s, in the most dangerous period for the inhabitants of the countryside, that of the Turkish raids.
