A combination of B&B/nature/wildlife photography, factors which denote not only the desire to spend leisure time in contact with nature (especially common among stressed-out city dwellers), but also the great revival of interest in photography in view of the advantages of digital images. This makes us stand out against the crowd of "ordinary" B&Bs. We offer something different devised, above all, for people who love nature, who appreciate peace and quiet and are interested in anything to do with ecology and a balanced relationship between people and nature. Podere Papilio's added value is precisely this vision of nature as something we are privileged to be able to see, to perceive its most evocative aspects and cherish them now and for the future. A protected place where people may live in harmony with respect for their surroundings. That's why we have taken all precautions to avoid polluting as much as possible. Our electricity is generated by solar panels; rainwater is collected in a cistern then purified for domestic use and irrigation. Podere Papilio is a zero impact establishment.
She was a teacher, he was a journalist and photographer. After crossing the threshold of their fiftieth birthdays they decided it was time to change their life. They looked for a place with authentic values where they could live at one with nature, at a slower, easier pace. This is how Podere Papilio came into being. The name was already settled: Podere Papilio (Papilio Farm), a place where the focus is on butterflies, which were a great hobby of his since childhood and, later, hers too. They both love nature, animals, plants.
If you venture just a little further afield there's no lack of nature reserves, towns steeped in history (Magna Graecia included part of Apulia), archaeological sites, clean beaches and crystal seas. You're truly spoiled for choice: from the Castellana caves to Castel del Monte (a UNESCO World Heritage site), from Taranto to Ostuni and the Salento region, there are endless opportunities for enjoyable day trips, especially if you consider the huge number of special events, local festivals, fairs, concerts etc.
