The Location of our Workshop:
Montesano Salentino 
Our Workshop is located in the geographical and cultural heart of Salento: the possibilities are virtually endless whether you choose the sea, the hystorical places or the natural beauties. If you want to discover customs and traditions, if you love the contact with nature, the award winning golden seasides, the spectacular cliffs overhanging the sea, if you want to taste genuine food and get lost into the old flavours, Montesano Salentino is the ideal starting point for visiting this wonderful land and getting to know, appreciate and love it.
Salento is an unspoiled stretch of land between the western Jonian and the southern Adriatic indented coastlines with high cliffs, lovely fjords, hidden "calette", long white beaches and a transparent sea with coastal fisheries, deep sea fishing. Salento is a peninsula of the Italian peninsula, it is" The Heel of the Boot" floating on the Mediterranean sea. It is often quoted in epic poems such as the Odyssey and the Aeneid and it is placed in the cradle of Western civilization.
Salento begins at Lecce and ends on The Heel of Italy. It is said that the peninsular tilts to the east because a Greek God, to enjoy himself, had wanted the boot for his own.
