Le Capase Resort Salento is located inside the Regional Natural Park that stretches from Otranto to Santa Maria di Leuca along the eastern coast of Salento. Perched on top of a cliff, the resort offers guests breath-taking views of the Strait of Otranto.
Salvaged from a disused building from the 1970s, Le Capase Resort Salento has been renovated using high quality local materials and traditional craftsmanship, such as dry stone walls, leccese stone, Soleto stone and Trani stone, tiled floors and Cutrofiano capase. Capase – ancient terracotta urns used predominantly to conserve friselle, dried figs roasted with almonds and other foods – are one of the most symbolic icons of Salento culture.
Children aged 12 and over are welcome in the hotel.
The resort has 16 welcoming and bright rooms, all with terrace or private patio.
Classic – located in the main body of the resort, these rooms offer a terrace with sea or garden views.
Prestige – spacious and comfortable, these rooms have a sea view and a private patio overlooking the garden.
Superior – this room offers a large terrace overlooking the sea; sea view, garden view and view over the Spanish Minervino tower.
A varied buffet breakfast of fresh seasonal fruit, freshly-squeezed orange juice, home-made cakes, cereals, yoghurt, croissants and marmalades is served in La Terrazza. For lunch, guests can enjoy traditional dishes from the Salento region, all prepared using seasonal ingredients from the local area.
Services & Activities
The cliff-side terrace overlooking the sea offers guests a place to lie back and relax: the terrace is furnished with parasols, sun beds and garden sofas, as well as a stunning infinity pool surrounded by flowers and Mediterranean plants. First thing in the morning, part of the sun deck is reserved for yoga and meditation. Massages are available upon request; mountain bikes are available free of charge. Sea lovers and fishing enthusiasts can reserve the hotel’s boat. Bio-trekking can be organised – pick herbs along the paths used by fishermen and shepherds and then prepare herbal teas with them back at the hotel or at home. Horse riding excursions along the nearby bauxite lake can also be arranged. Lovers of the stars and the night sky can star gaze from the hotel’s terrace: Santa Cesarea Terme is one of the darkest spots in Italy, and the resort’s isolated location only serves to heighten the night spectacle.
