About us

Li Surìi is a holiday complex situated within approximately ninety acres of olive groves, vineyards and Mediterranean vegetation, nestled on a hill over the sea between Manduria and Avetrana, just a few steps away from the crystal clear waters of the Ionian Sea. Cradled in Salento, a distinguished region rich in history, the estate consists of a farm and two beautiful historic structures, "La Masseria" and "Trappeto". The Trappeto is a building from the 1700’s that spreads over three levels. At one time, the underground part was used for the processing of olives for the production of lamp oil destined to light the city of Paris; meanwhile the first floor was used for all other stages of processing – for storage and loading, and to house the many workers employed. The farmhouse, “La Masseria”, is undergoing renovation of its workspaces, the courtyards, the sheepfolds and the large manor house, which presents top floor suites of rare beauty.

The unique atmosphere of the Salento area, the sea and the gentle landscape of Puglia offer the ideal conditions for any event. Li Surìi is an elegant choice. Years of dedication and extreme professionalism make this resort an inspiring haven. Centuries of history and farming traditions serve a selected clientele: our food, our halls and high attention to detail are the result of years of planning, determination and love for high quality.

The olive trees

Li Surìi is situated in a working farm of about ninety acres. Thousands of olive trees, often monumental, a characteristic of Puglia, testify to the great agricultural vocation of the territory. Even today, the generous production of olives allows you to enjoy very high quality oil. Li Surìi cares and is devoted to organic farming, which allows the production of oil to maintain the original sensorial and organoleptic characteristics of the area, Puglia, known for its permeable soils and its welcoming climate throughout the year.
