There are musical groups that come to practice and host events, we have hosted yoga and meditation events and also have food tastings.
At the moment we have a resident yoga teacher who runs her courses here.
We have a large property with various fruit and nut trees, as well as a vegetable garden, a few dogs, chickens and ducks, which all live in peace.
We are in the quiet countryside, a few kilometrs out of the city of Lecce, famous for it's baroque architecture, as well as a few kilometers away from the beautiful coast of the Adriatic sea.
