MULINO A VENTO: more than a resort
Mulino a vento is a quiet and relaxing retreat in Uggiano La Chiesa, rich in intensely captivating history that began centuries ago, located just outside Otranto. Named after an underground oil mill, active from 1688 to the end of the ‘800s, it is shrouded in stories and brought to life with anecdotes and legends, such as those on the ‘striare’ (meaning witches in Salento dialect). Olive oil was produced here, then in the late ’80s the D’Alba family renovated the adjacent stables, converting them into a farm and a restaurant in 2003. There are eight buildings on the grounds, each with seven rooms, situated among olive trees and Mediterranean plants. It is the perfect retreat for curious travelers that are passionate about the area.
