The right destination at the right time

Experience an autumn of relaxation in Salento

Autumn is the season of a thousand colors, and of a thousand perfumes. Salento offers naturalistic views in which to rest the mind and the spirit: the red of the leaves that slow down on the ground, the bright green, the grass in the fields … The earth is faded with an intense brown creating chromatic contrasts worthy of a painting. The wind is beautiful, but not too much. There are days, in fact, still so hot that it is possible to swim thanks to the Mediterranean climate, heating up to San Martino. In fact, on social media are jokes about the long summers of Salento and posted photos on the beach with the hashtag #neverendingsummer: a summer that never ends, to put it with the Negramaro, the famous group of Salento, one summer softened by the colors that fade into each other: red, orange, magenta, white, blue.

It’s time for afternoon walks, for romance, for watching the waves crashing on the rocks, for admiring the power of nature, as in a painting by Friedrich, and for getting lost in the immensity. Looking for yourself, in Gallipoli you will find an excellent opportunity to combine exercise, reflection and silence and achieve well-being. During the first two weeks of November, the “Mediterranean Meditation” course will be held in the unique and inimitable location of the Castello di Gallipoli. An opportunity not to be missed!

Autumn is a metaphor of life: the Italian poet Ungaretti used to say, “It’s like autumn leaves on trees”. Life is short. So take a suitcase on the first flight to come on holiday in Salento, and enjoy the sea, the silence, the quiet, the fresh and light air, the scents of bread and a fireplace, and the wind and flowers.

Autumn, for those who can, is the best season to travel. Salento is an ideal destination, quiet and dynamic at the same time. Not only because of the sea, but people find new ways of being together. Autumn evenings swarm with parties, drink new wine, peel roasted chestnuts, chat, and eat lots of local delights.
