I fichi bianchi
Bed & Breakfast
Welcome to I fichi bianchi, a gluten-free Bed & Breakfast. It is located in a lovingly refurbished old Liberty style villa, using only traditional local materials (pietra Leccese and cementine) and retaining the original vaulted ceilings, all nestled in this warm and tranquil part of Salento, the "heel" of Italy.
Here you can relax and enjoy a tasty vegetarian breakfast with fresh local produce, such as the eponymous sweet white figs ("i fichi bianchi"), white mulberries and many other delicious fruits of this fertile region. On request we can also offer you vegan or savoury options.
Breakfast can be enjoyed at your chosen time under the pergola, before heading out to explore and enjoy this beautiful and peaceful corner of the world.
