Plunged within the renown olive groves of the area of Salento and few miles away from the Natural Reserve of Torre Guaceto, the “Ovile di Scilla” rises where sea, earth and sky come together in perfect harmony.
An ancient sheepfold with a long and unique restoration, had been transformed in this natural retreat in cooperation with the most renown local artists and artisans, being able to enhance the regional tradition and history.
During relax time, guests can use the “wellness area” with jacuzzi and steam bath set up in a unique and enchanting scenario atmosphere surrounded by olive trees, bouganville, 2 hectars of Mediterranean maquis.
The architecture merges the typical style of Salento with a light Arabian touch given by the white domes and the huge internal courtyard.
In the Mediterranean vegetation of our Natural Retreat, you will find the salt water swimming pool of the Ovile di Scilla:a particular area with a refined style, in which you can regenerate between sun, trees and earth.
Trees, a organic vegetable garden and vineyard allows all guests to taste the true flavors of this fascinating territory. In this Masseria is given a special attention to nutrition: all products like vegetables, olive oil, marmelades, bread and cakes will be “km 0”.
Leitmotiv of the Ovile di Scilla menu is the valorization of local products with a “fusion” touch, creating a unique and tasty kitchen with dishes like: “chicken tandoori” on a turnip greens and broccoli bed; fava beans puree with organic olive oils, kamut slives, mussels and Tropea red onions.
Local wines like Negroamaro and Primitivo, rich in resveratrol (strong anti-aging) and “home made” products tasting, is the final touch of this unique kitchen.
For those who love nature in combination with style, culture and wellness, the “Ovile di Scilla” is the place to be…!
