We can resume our activities given the guidelines for the reopening of social activities.
Some precautions and a little patience will be needed but …
we can dance, move and breathe, and we can do it together and in the full of the nature!


Casina Settarte is a place where the sun is reflected on the white roofs of the Trulli sprouting here and there amongst the green of olive groves.

Here daily life is marked by the principles of love for the land, attention and care for every living being and the search for our essential self.
