Gallipoli and Salento

Masseria Li Capperi is located a stone's throw from Gallipoli, a picturesque Ionian coastal town in Apuglia, built on the western coast of the peninsula of Salento, in the Gulf of Taranto. Gallipoli is divided into two well-defined areas: the "old town" and the "new town". The charming historical old town, rich in ancient buildings and frescoes, is a limestone island connected to the mainland by a masonry bridge.

It is not difficult to reach some of the most beautiful tourist and seaside resorts of Salento, which are just a few kilometers from the Masseria: Baia Verde (5 km), is the best destination among the nearest beaches, suitable for young people and families. Punta della Suina (6 km), can be the alternative if you are looking for the peace of a free beach.
