We have some experience in agriturismi in Italy and before arrival I have to admit we were not that sure about Specolizzi. After all it was considerably more expensive then other agriturismi we stayed in. But after one week we can say Specolizzi is excellent. The host Mario makes the difference. My advise is: consult him as much as possible. He can give you the best info about beaches, restaurants and things to visit. Also, the situation of Specolizzi is excellent: you can choose different beaches at less then 15 minutes by car, you can go to Gallipolli, Lecce, Otranto and discover the complete Salento-region. The appartments are comfortable, the swimmingpools are both similar to the ones you can find in a 4 or 5 star hotel. The daily brunch and weekly dinner is great. Even if it costs a bit more, do consider Specolizzi if you are looking for a quiet little paradise in the midst of the beautifull Salento.
