Harriet, Kate L and Victoria are here to help give you the inside track.

The 24 spacious, contemporary suites spill out onto private gardens or terraces, permitting each guest to bask in their own secluded little corner of beautiful Puglia. King-sized beds and luxuriously-appointed bathrooms offer ultimate indulgence, each with enchanting views over the surrounding 5,000 fig trees and the fields beyond.

Guests can dine alfresco on the terrace, sampling delicious fresh fare based on traditional Salento recipes at the Il Ficheto organic restaurant, or cosy up inside, savouring seasonal produce from the resort's farm after a day in the sunshine. Tuck into a coffee and homemade cakes in the shade of grove of camphor, or sip a cocktail by the pool at the Grecía Bar in the evening.

Begin your day with an early morning yoga session in the serene Mediterranean garden, lounging by the enormous swimming pool (designed to look like a small lake) or soaking up the scenery from the Jacuzzi. Alternatively, relax at the well-equipped spa - try the Mediterranean fruit packs treatment for something a little different. For those looking for a little more action, the gym has floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Mediterranean garden, so you definitely won't be missing out.

The resort also offers regular transfers to the nearby palm-fringed beach, where you can sink your feet into the sand and sit with your nose in a book, or paddle in the azure waters. For those looking to explore this beautiful corner of Puglia further, trips to the nearby village of Salento, surrounded by olive groves, or to Otranto (the mosaic-floored cathedral is well worth a visit) and the surrounding coastline, as well as numerous other local sites can be arranged through the hotel. Yacht excursions are also available for those wanting to get out on the water.
