The strategic position of our estate, situated right in the countryside, offers an excellent starting point for excursions to historic and cultural sites of Apulia, like Lecce Alberobello, Ostuni ecc., as well as for walking, cycling or donkey trekking. On request, we organize individual excursions to interesting tourism locations of the region, food and wine excursions and trekking, possibly accompanied by Ute. She will share her experience as a tourist guide for the Apulia region.
In each period of the year we offer cooking lessons guided by the expert hands of Mario's cousins and aunts. You will learn how to prepare the typical orecchiette or the focaccia pugliese (a variety of stuffed pizza).
The apartments for guests of the Giardini di Marzo are in the country house. The main entrance opens to a room with the accesses to the two apartments. The smaller apartment Rondinella has a very spacious bedroom with sofa and can accommodate two persons . The floor of the carriage-vaulted bedroom is tiled with ancient stone. Two steps lead to the original room with fireplace, which invites you to spend some time reading or having a glass of wine in front of the wood fire. Another step gives onto the bathroom, equipped with a masonry wash basin, a bidet, a toilet and a shower. The bathroom is flooded with light thanks to the transparent carriage vault.
The Asinelli apartment, the most spacious one, has a bedroom for two persons with carriage vault and floor tiled with regional stone, as well as a room that has a barrel vault with exposed stone walls, a double bed on the mezzanine level and a futon sofa. This room can accommodate another person, or two children. The large Zen bathroom with barrel vault and exposed stone walls has two wash basins, a bidet, a toilet, a wash basin for the feet, a bathtub and a spacious shower in masonry as well as a series of stone steps that serve as benches, and offer enough place even for a large family.
Our apartments are equipped with air conditioning designed following an organic and intelligent method so as to guarantee (both in summer and winter) a temperate, healthy, optimum ventilation. The rooms have been renovated in traditional style, with barrel vaults or cross vaults, little niches, masonry benches and floors tiled with regional stone.
The large common room is available to all guests for breakfast or for reading. You will find books on Apulia and there is a WIFI zone. Outside there is a parking area, a covered terrace and of course the garden itself, breathing relaxation with stone benches and deck chairs under the olive trees, in the midst of flowerbeds.
