Peaceful Puglian countryside property
Only when you book with Chic
Ensconced in the largest organic plantation of fig trees in Europe, Furnirussi Tenuta is the place to come for a relaxing break in the beautiful countryside of Puglia. Although Otranto and Lecce are close, you’ll likely spend the majority of your days basking in the Mediterranean sun beside the expansive, lake-inspired pool, or wandering through the extensive gardens. There's an impressively equipped spa for those that want a bit of pampering, and the hotel’s restaurant serves up delicious meals, using ingredients sourced from the attached working farm.
A delicious breakfast is served daily, featuring figs grown on the grounds. The hotel’s restaurant, Il Ficheto, produces Puglian dishes using seasonal fruits and vegetables from the estate’s farm. Meals can be enjoyed on the terrace during the warmer months for a romantic setting. The poolside bar serves light bites and refreshments throughout the day.
The rooms at this all-suite property have elegant, contemporary décor, with a light palette. They feature a living area, views to the estate, and local stone en-suites.
The huge pool blends perfectly with the surrounding natural beauty. Lounge on the spacious sun beds, or find a peaceful spot in the lush gardens. And the spa features massage rooms, hydrotherapy and relaxation areas, as well as a hammam carved into the rock.
The hotel is an excellent base for exploring the unspoiled charms of Puglia, with many pretty towns and villages close by. Explore the Baroque beauty of Lecce, or uncover the history of seaside Otranto, besieged and captured by the Ottomans in the 15th-century.
