Our story starts like this: we would love to have our wedding party in Italy in a dream place. Guess what? At Tenuta Giardini Nuovi it became a reality! Together with our friends we stayed there for 3 days and everything was extraordinary. Gift baskets were waiting for us in the rooms, which contained all kinds of goodies, including wine from their own production. The rooms had everything you needed, including the kitchen, and everything was very clean. For the party, we had the help of Liana and Marco, who suggested both catering and music and we also had the chance to serve our guests Tenuta's wine. I can't express in words how delighted we all were with the vast property and how beautiful the event turned out there by the pool. I wholeheartedly recommend Tenuta Giardini Nuovi for such events as well as for relaxation or why not at the beach which is 20 minutes by car.
Thanks again, Tenuta Giardini Nuovi.

For those seeking a refuge that combines history, patina, unpretentious luxury, and natural beauty, Tenuta GN stands as a destination that has the full capacity for a super pleasant escape. Our apartment, with a private gazebo, was a minute away from the spacious, crystal-clear pool. As our stay coincided with the peak of the season, the pool became an oasis of relaxation, offering respite from crowded beaches. It was a refreshing contrast, and we found ourselves spending more time there than we planned. The staff was a delightful blend of attentiveness and subtlety. It was their dedication that truly elevated the overall experience. Have in mind that the allure of Tenuta extends far beyond its touristic amenities. The estate boasts a landscape reminiscent of a carefully crafted movie set, featuring sprawling vineyards, olive trees, almond groves, lime, and orange trees. The heart of Tenuta is undoubtedly its 19th-century villa, a masterpiece that evokes a sense of cultural reverence.
We really enjoyed our stay here! We came here in the middle of the summer but could always find a way to escape the heat. Either by using the lovely communal pool (every apartment has their own little area with sunbeds and chairs etc.) or by going to one of the many nearby beaches. The hosts always had great recommendations for us and even made dinner reservations for restaurants in Lecce. We recommend this place to anyone visiting Puglia!
If you are looking for a place to come to rest and relax, look no further. This apartment and the swimming pool are an oasis of tranquility and calmness that you've never experienced before. Very clean and cozy!
