Basiliani Resort & SPA is located in the popular tourist town of Otranto, in the province of Lecce. The resort revives an ancient district of the city, from which it inherits the volume and floor plan of the buildings, the play of solids and voids, recesses and ledges, the presence of terraces with pergolas, external stairs, small openings, stone cornices and other elements typical of the local architecture. The property is located about 800 metres from the centre of Otranto.

A meeting place between Western and Eastern culture throughout history, and an ancient crossroads of commerce and trade with the East, the city of Otranto is one of the most enchanting places in Salento. Otranto is located in the eastern tip of Italy and overlooks a beautiful bay that bears the city´s name. Those who decide to spend their holidays in Otranto find themselves immersed in a breathtaking natural setting. The view ranges from the hinterland, dominated by Mediterranean vegetation, and the clearest stretches of crystal blue sea in Italy. The days pass in a serene and carefree atmosphere among golden sandy beaches and clear blue sea. The cleanliness of the water is evidenced by the 5 sails award issued by Legambiente to the city of Otranto. For several years Otranto has been ranked at the top of the cleanest waters classifications by the environmentalist association. But Otranto is not only a charming seaside destination, the city also retains precious relics of its past and its rich artistic heritage. During your holiday in Otranto, take a walk in the old town: you will be charmed by the imposing walls of the Castello Aragonese, a structure dating back to the fifteenth century that overlooks the sea. Your tour should include a stop at Cathedral, the centre of worship and a reference point for the inhabitants of the city for centuries. Inside the Cathedral dedicated to Santa Maria Annunziata you can admire the unique mosaic floor dating from the twelfth century. Moving away from the city limits towards the north, just 8 km from Otranto you reach Laghi Alimini, two small freshwater lakes immersed in a luxuriant natural setting within a protected oasis.
