This historical agricultural cottage in a typical courtyard style situated at the entrance of Otranto’s historic centre overlooking the port, the castle and the Serpe tower, one of the most striking points of Salento. is home to Hotel Corte di Nettuno. The restoration of the cottage, carried out using the most modern construction methods while still respecting nature and tradition, brought about the creation of a receptive facility fitted with all the comforts. The sea is not simply a visual splendour, but is also savoured through the choices of matter and chromaticity, in the furniture and fittings, in the splendid collection of maritime objects, welcoming the traveller who stops in the “Terra d’Otranto” (land of Otranto) and giving them the sensation of being on a cruise along the Mediterranean coastline, the perfect harmony between land and sea. Like a modern Ulysses the traveller can pay homage to the god of the sea, who the hotel honours throughout the complex, beginning with the statue in the centre of the courtyard and after which the hotel itself is named.
A boutique hotel of recent construction, with views of the marina and just a few steps from the walls of the ancient city of Otranto. The beauty, the location and the comfort of the structure is well suited to a type of relaxing holiday but at the same time gives you the opportunity to visit carefully what is considered by many as the "most beautiful village in Italy" which has recently gained recognition as a "world Cultural Heritage" by UNESCO. The center is characterized by a continuous up and down alleys and cobbled streets that open squares overlooking the sea. The Aragonese Castle of Otranto, which hosts exhibitions and events of various kinds, overlooking the city center and is a show within a show, in the evening, then lit is one of the most romantic places in Salento. Finally, a nod to the Cathedral with its beautiful mosaic floor. Do not miss to stop for a sundowner at one of the cafes or bars present on the ramparts from where you can see a beautiful view of the harbor. Otranto is a great starting point for any excursions.
