A wonderful hostel. It is such a beautiful place to relax and unwind. You have to see it to believe it, the gardens are just stunning. We stayed in the newly constructed room near the river, an absolute haven. It is easy to get into Salento with buses stopping on the main road about a 10 mimute walk from the accom. Ed is a lovely and attentive host, helping whenever and however he can with booking tours and offering local advice. We booked for 3 nights and stayed for 5, it is hard to leave!

Great place to stay at! Amazing hosts, great food and amazing atmosphere. My only complaint was that there was no more hot water twice during our stay, but as an ecological farm, that is understandable.

Perfect for a relaxing stay! Pictures do not do justice for how beautiful this property really is. You can’t capture the peaceful sounds of the river or birds in pictures. The dining area is beautiful and the breakfasts/dinners were delicious!!! The property is about 10 min from town but very easy to get transportation. I took the bus into town a couple times. I also took an Uber at night to play tejo as well as to the airport. No issues getting Ubers! Amazing place to stay! Thank you!
