Inside the small historical centre of Matino, in the South of Salento, rises a small ortale (vegetable garden) built on the top of an ancient cistern, enclosed by high and thick stone walls covered with white lime. The orchard gives light to a sequence of old vaulted rooms, creating an elegant Riad. The aim of the careful restoration work is to preserve the ancient charm of the original Apulian architecture, creating a comfortable holiday home. The small courtyard, completely paved with tumbled slabs of pietra leccese, keep on being the heart of the house, offering nice chilling areas and a place to have dinner. The warm tones of the pietra leccese and the local carparo are continuously mixed with white lime, spread on all the others walls, in order to create very relaxing atmospheres.
