“Smart Agriturismo”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

This is a really smart agriturismo. It is a working farm with 74 hectares of olive trees owned by the Azzolini family for generations. Nonna still lives in the big house and her daughter and grand-daughter, Francesca, look after the farm and hotel. It is lovely with comfortable rooms and grounds and pool. There is restaurant on site, but be warned, the antipasta is huge - don't order anything else! Food is excellent. This is a great base from which to explore beautiful Lecce or visit the deserted beaches (deserted in September anyway). We loved this place, but work on farm starts at 6 am, so there can be some early morning noise, but get up early and enjoy a refreshing swim!

Room Tip: All rooms are equally nice

Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

We spent a week here . Francesca met us and was very helpful and pleasant . The apartment was clean and spacious , simple but we had everything we needed. We liked having our breakfast in the little garden ,looking out onto the pool - lovely peaceful surroundings . The pool was very nice. The restaurant was open a couple of times and was good , the other nights we ate in Lecce or in the other towns we visited . There is only one other restaurant nearby and we weren't very impressed with it. Lecce was very beautiful , well worth visiting but a bit disappointed that the coastline near badessa wasn't very attractive- but we did find some nice beaches north of Brindisi, about forty mins drive.
I would definitely recommend Badessa if you are looking for a peaceful relaxing break , it was very quiet in June and the weather was good.
