At the extreme south of the Salento peninsula where the land is covered by secular olive trees, where the Adriatic and Ionian Seas join together, a coastline of fine sand beaches and rocky coves take us to Santa Maria di Leuca. At a distance of 5 km. from Leuca, in the town of Patù, we find the Masseria Agrituristica San Nicola.

Our Olive Orchards Take a look

The agricultural complex of De Salvo is situated in the territory of Patu near the sea. It is a relatively small farming complex that was once part of a vast property that already existed in 1500. The present owner, Francesco De Salvo decided to plant a hectare of new olive trees in 1985 with "Nociara" olives that were a new variety for our area.

Another hectare was planted with an autochthonous variety called "Oliarola" nel 1990. In 1995 a hundred new trees were planted in the replanting of a secular grove. Pestacides and antiparasite solutions are not used on the olive trees.

The olives are mecahanically picked, separated, and cold pressed in the traditional method. The oil produced in this way has a low acidity level and it is stored in steel tanks which conserve the properties, taste and aroma of the oil. The suppliers send all orders by express courier throughout all of Italy. The goods are sent to destination with delivery expenses and transport risks charged to the client. The transport expenses are calculated and included in all confermed order statements.
