The Aia is a place to acclimate; to drop in and drop out at the same time.

The bed & breakfast is located in the heart of Salento: just a 5 minute drive to the historic center of Nardò and a 5 minute drive to the sea. The property is situated on 2 hectares / 5 acres of land which proudly grows a variety  of fruits and vegetables, as well as olives, walnut trees and more. The bed & breakfast has 7 rooms, all with their own private bathroom and all have a door that goes to the exterior of the house. 

Weekly events that occur at the Aia include yoga classes and outdoor cinema and wine night under the stars. Whether you want to stay back and stare into the Salento sky, go cliff jumping, lay all day in a hammock, go fishing, hiking, have an evening drink by the sea, or hop on a bike and explore- the Aia is it. Although, Salento is a strange and magical land, and personally I recommend exploring it all.
