Since 1978, an area of over 30,000 square meters, 150 meters above sea level….
The Campsite is covered by the scents of the plants dotted in the surrounding countryside, and has a crystal clear sea, only 3km away. It is centrally located between two extraordinary characteristic landscapes: The Adriatic, with its charming, severe, rocky stones; and the graceful Ionian one, where the beauty of the pine woods reaches the sea, to keep company all those who in these seas are in search of times gone by or of an intense physical happiness. Suddenly the coast with the relaxing beaches of fine golden sand of Santa Maria di Leuca breaks into caves feeding the tourist’s imagination and evoking other fascinating places in the world.
Here Santa Maria “de finibus terrae" (The Virgin Mary of Leuca) communicates the sense of being in a part of the world where beyond the last stretch of land there is only the vastness of blue sea or the mirage of a land beyond this lovely and mysterious coast; in good weather conditions, the long chain of mountains on the horizon appears like a mirage.
Here from far and near charm and fantasies intertwine recalling early mythical and historical memories, and take you far away...
For the last 30 years the Campsite has welcomed its guests with great cordiality, the same with which you would greet family and friends. This is a distinctive management feature (as well as our way of living) of the Licchelli family. A lot of importance is also given to the protection of the environment and this has enabled the Campsite to be listed among the tourist facilities selected by Legambiente, the relevant environmental authority.
The Campsite has a photovoltaic system and solar panels, following the latest practice, adopting the appropriate measures in order to reduce the use of water and electricity, to improve recycling, and by choosing to use bicycles or other low consuming means of transport for trips and excursions, encouraging the active participation of the guests in all aspects of the "philosophy of the organization."
It is our concern to meet all the needs of the guests.
In the centre of the Campsite there are two swimming-pools: a semi-Olympic one and one for children.
In the area around the swimming pools many different activities are organized to entertain our guests: muscle toning, group dancing, competitions, games and aqua aerobics, it is also possible to simply relax, read a book or chat with the other guests .
A gazebo is set up for massages, physiotherapy and Shiatsu.
The Campsite offers comfortable mobile homes and fully furnished mini-apartments.
