Furnirussi Tenuta is a wonderful new addition to our Puglia portfolio. Located in the heart of the Salento close to the little town of Serrano, this impressive Tenuta is set amidst 4500 beautiful fig trees – the biggest biological fig orchard in Europe!
The striking building welcomes you as you enter the grounds through the gates and the typical white washed walls,
dazzling in the bright sunshine, remind you that you are in Southern Italy.
The entrance into the Tenuta leads in to a lovely lounge area with comfy sofas where you can relax and plan your day with a cappuccino or perhaps an espresso. A walk in the glorious grounds will take you along shady and sunny paths, passing an array of fruit trees, the wonderful vegetable gardens and of course the amazing fig trees.
The fantastic pool sits in front of the Tenuta where there is a selection of sunbeds and gazebos to enjoy. Few hotels have such a large pool and it will be easy to while away a day or two, simply unwinding in the peaceful surroundings and taking a refreshing dip every so often.
Recently opened, Furnirussi Tenuta offers a high standard of accommodation with a choice of Junior Suites and Suites – all slightly different in size and décor but all spacious and furnished with great flair. WiFi, air conditioning, sofa, safe, fridge, kettle, TV sat, private outside area and a wonderful selection of bathroom products, made of course from figs, is common to all rooms.
The super restaurant, Il Ficheto, is the perfect place to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner on a shady terrace close to the pool. The chef uses predominantly fresh and seasonal produce straight from the gardens and offers some tasty local and traditional dishes, often with a bit of a twist. You may choose from the á la carte menu or perhaps try one of the taster menus with an array of dishes to tickle your taste buds.
A small spa area is open to hotel guests where there is a great selection of treatments, massages and relaxation therapies. For those wishing to stay in shape, there is a techo-gym hidden amidst the olive trees and jogging tracks that take you through the fig trees – a long way from pounding the urban streets in the rain!
Furnirussi Tenuta promises to be a wonderful base in the truly glorious Salento and we know you will have just the best of times.
