Salento Guesthouse is a b&b run by Giuseppe. The b&b is housed in the family home where his grandparents lived until the early 2000s, in Carpignano Salentino, in the heart of the Salento (Apulia).
Giuseppe experienced firsthand the wonders of the family home and then decided to transform it into a holiday home, making spacious apartments with attention to every detail. Each apartment is named after one of the women who lived in this house in Carpignano, in the
heart of the Salento.
