The four star Relais Valle dell'Idro Hotel is immersed in the classic coastal Mediterranean vegetation of the Salento coast near Otranto.
The slight high plain also means the hotel is situated at the most panoramic point in the zone for breathtaking views of the turquoise sea below.
This is the bay of 'La Castellana', the same bay where the pleasure yachts are moored and are available for hire courtesy of a convention with Relais Valle dell'Idro.
The light sea breezes also refresh the visitor and give a sense of clam and relaxation.
Whether you choose a standard or luxury room, each is furnished in a late 18th century style. Some suites still have the original mosaics and every room is different, enhancing the Grand Tour feel.
Nevertheless, the Relais Valle dell'Idro boasts air conditioning with remote control for guest comfort, TV-Sat, minibar, mini fridge, bathrooms with shower or hydro bathtub and direct line with web access.
