In Puglia, in the heart of Salento, lies this charming 4-star resort surrounded by nature and tinged by the green Mediterranean maquis and olive trees, turquoise sea, ochre earth and yellow sun. At Acaya it seems as if time slows down to make room for rest, relaxation and wellbeing.
Next to the resort is the natural oasis of Le Cesine, with its extraordinary biodiversity, which covers 620 hectares along the coast. The beautiful 18-hole golf course has been built right next to the reserve and is completely surrounded by nature. Amid the greenery is an ancient and picturesque farmhouse dating back to the sixteenth century, home to the club house.
The rooms faithfully convey our sense of hospitality. They are elegant, comfortable, spacious and functional. The two outdoor pools and the exceptional spa, covering 1,200 square meters, offer just the right mix of water, freshness and wellbeing. The food is great, a cross between Salento tradition and culinary innovation, with a food concept designed by Michelin-starred chef Ribaldone. The cuisine is close to fine dining, but without affectation, and is accompanied by fine wines and produce from small local wineries. Don’t miss an aperitif by the pool, which at sunset becomes pure magic.
Lecce can be reached in just 10 minutes by car and Brindisi Casale airport in about 40 minutes.
