The House of Tobacco is a wonderful place. The pictures do not give justice to the location! It is very well furnished, the atmosphere is relaxing and it is equipped at best for a very pleasant holiday. Arturo is a very welcoming host. He is kind, always available, prompt and helpful. We wanted to organize a dinner in the house (which has like 200sqmt of common part to be enjoyed) and he promptly arranged it. A lady came to prepare the most tasteful local food for me and my friends. The place is located in a typical Puglia village and it is only few km away from the nicest beaches in the area. I will definitely come back and strongly recommended it!

I work in the field of the international cooperation, therefore I traveled a lot and I speak a few languages in addition to my own: Italian.
One of my main interest in life is to preserve and promote local differences and peculiarities with special attention to old traditions, gastronomy and cultural heritage.
I discovered Salento a few years ago, in 2004, and decided to buy an old stone-tabacco factory where me and my wife Emira have made renovations in complete respect of the local style and features. We decided afterwards to open the old factory to the public and share with our guests the beauty and charm of this unique area.
