Here you can develop work, research or simply relax and recover lost energies in a creative and nurturing atmosphere.

Casina Settarte is located on a hilltop with breathtaking views over the Itria Valley, on one side, olive trees, cacti, tradition stone art and Italian homes called ‘Trulli’ and on the other horizon the glittering blue Adriatic sea.

Residencies can take place whenever the space is free, these times vary year to year depending on the courses and activities we have already booked in. Please contact us to discuss possible times for your residency.

Reasonable fees for hire of activity space, accommodation and provision of food apply, please contact us for details.

We are more than happy to write letters of support to be used in funding applications etc.


Please note: We run differently to traditional accommodation (Hostels, Bed and Breakfast etc.) staying with us requires a different approach, flexibility and respect for nature are absolutely necessary.

With this in mind we have put together some Essential Information for potential visitors which you must read before you arrive. Please click here.
