It is a nineteenth-century building that collapsed in the 1970s and was rebuilt.
The real farm in Salento!
In the land made of oil, wine and courtesy, you will be hosted in an ancient farmhouse surrounded by olive trees and organic farming products. In 2022 we built a splendid swimming pool. We are 3 km far from Santa Maria di Leuca, “The Pearl of the Two Seas”.
Fabrizio and the Staff are waiting for you!
It takes its name from the characteristic vault of Lecce that has been highlighted in this accommodation.
It is the result of an expansion carried out in 2002 and takes its name from the type of stone cladding.
Il Vecchio Forno
Inserted in the oldest building, it was used as an oven for drying figs.
An integral part of the original body, it was a small shelter for farmers engaged in agricultural work.

What they say about us
We only visited for dinner, driving up from Leuca for the evening. The atmosphere is gorgeous, would have loved to see the farm in the daytime. The dining terrace is surrounded by olive trees, there was a cat walking around, idyllic! The service was excellent and the gentleman spoke fluent English. Set menu style is very easy to understand and the food was excellent in taste and quality. Our evening was made by a visit from the 91 year old owner who took the time to speak to us despite us understanding zero Italian and him having very limited English! Make sure you try the homegrown olive oil – its the best I’ve ever had!
Spend two nights at Serine, enjoying the silence and the peace. An old mansion, surrounded by olive trees, a short distance from Leuca and the sea. Very nice atmosphere. Good clean rooms, nice hosts and good simple food cooked according to local tradition.
Lovely hotel, lovely food, lovely location
We stayed for a week at Agriturismo Serine and had a great time. The room was very comfortable and spacious, the restaurant was always delicious, the agriturismo was a charming establishment and the location was very convenient for spending days at the beach. The owners too were very helpful. Overall I’d have to say the highlight was the food – superb fresh ingredients cooked in a number of imaginative and delicious ways to show off the best of local produce.
We rode our bikes up out of Leuca to this wonderful agriturismo . Our room had a kitchen/sitting room, bedroom, bathroom and a shaded terrace. We enjoyed some of the wine produced at the farm. Dinner was great with much of the food grown on the farm. The olive oil was excellent. I wish I could have bought some but it was too heavy for the bike. We were close to a supermarket and bought some beer and snacks. Another guest told us about Torre Vado and we went there on our bikes to the beach. The dinners were excellent-fried stuffed zucchini blossoms as an app, pasta with fava or turnip greens as a primi and a secondi of lamb grilled. Breakfasts included home made jams and jam tarts. People were very friendly even with our poor Italian.
Quiet, comfortable, good food, stress free.
Agriturismo Serine is a traditional farm (masseria) growing citrus, olives, vegetables etc at the tip of Italy’s heel. Our room was comfortably sized, with modern bathroom, and opened onto it’s own small terrace, partly shaded. There are mesh screens over the doors and windows, though in October insects didn’t seem to be a problem. Dinners were tasty traditional food, much locally sourced. Breakfast included a selection of home made preserves and honey which were particularly delicious. These are available to buy, together with their own olive oil. Salento is a beautiful area; rugged coast, footpaths among the olive groves, beautiful towns, quite a different atmosphere from further north. Italy running at half speed.
