The relatively high wind security in the Strait of Otranto offers optimal conditions for lovers of wind and kite surfing, especially during the months of spring and autumn.
ARE DOGS AND CATS ALLOWED?
We are happy to accept pets in general, especially cats and dogs (better if not great in size), not least because the owners themselves love animals and have got three cats and a dog. Because of their presence the dogs must be kept on a leash and wear a muzzled in the generally accessible area. The spacious area of the farm allows a well stay for our four-legged friends. We also offer them breakfast.
