Valle Rita

Ginosa, Taranto
Bed & Breakfast

Relish the sunny pleasures of tennis, ping-pong, a spin on the bikes, a dip in the pool...a lazy lunch on the terrace, jazz, film nights...


15 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 - 5


Here is a rambling but beautifully maintained organic estate where citrus groves, ubiquitous olives, grapes for the table and swathes of seasonal fruit and veg flourish. Families and couples will flourish too – happily whiling away a week dipping in and out of the prickly pear-fringed pool, playing tennis and ping pong or borrowing bikes and shooting around the tracks of the estate. So much heat-drenched activity will surely warrant a lazy lunch on the terrace of the super restaurant with its seasonal, home-grown delights and wines from the owners’ other estate in Basilicata – locals flock in too (always a good sign). There are pleasant enough rooms for B&B while a series of traditional one-storey apartments and houses with little gardens and barbecue areas for DIY-ers dot the estate (note: from 2012 all prices will include breakfast). The owners don’t live on site but manager Giorgio is hugely helpful and weekly film nights and occasional jazz evenings in the old stables sound like fun. No need to be nonplussed by the slightly featureless landscape en route: breathe a sigh of relief at your lucky find.
