An ‘event-ful’ holiday Santa Maria di Leuca
For a fun-filled holiday of memorable experiences, Leuca in May is the right place to get the feel of the whole area and discover the true spirit of Salento.
As we all know May is the month that already hints at the heat of summer but still holds on to all the sweetness of springtime. Salento is brimming with trees in blossom, and the sun nearly always shines; the temperature is perfect, the wheat ripening for the first harvest and the Leuca sea is already warm enough for bathing while still free of the crowds.
This luxuriant month brings with it lots of festivals and events to make your Salento holiday something you’ll always remember.
It is a time when there are age-old, traditional fairs selling typical products of all kinds, from crafts to food items and livestock, such as the feast of Santa Maura in Corsano, near Leuca. This fair is held every first of May, a lovely alternative destination to take advantage of on what is ‘Labour Day’, a national holiday.
Then in our Leuca, on 12th and 13th May, there is the well-loved and long-awaited annual event “Ville in festa”, during which the nineteenth-century villas of St. Maria di Leuca, that we’ve already mentioned, are open to the public and can be admired in all their splendour.
Not far from Leuca, in Salve, in May we celebrate the ‘Maggio salvese’. This is a whole week dedicated to the celebration of nature, when we enjoy the town’s medieval centre, its traditions and gastronomy. There are guided tours, live performances, day trips and much more.
In short, in case you still have any doubts, book your holiday right away and come to Leuca in May to enjoy the beautiful Salento landscape. We’re sure that you will love it here. All of us here at the Montirò Hotel look forward to welcoming you, so that we can enjoy together the Salento May, here in the heart of the countryside.
