A Corner of Unspoilt Paradise.
Bed and Breakfast Zia Ni is a secluded tranquil retreat nestled in a Puglian olive grove , 5 km outside the small coastal town of Peschici. It is completely surrounded by the Peschici countryside: sprawling olive groves, lush fruit trees, and towering ancient pines.
It is the perfect hide away for weary travellers to relax in comfort, yet is only a short distance from Peschici and its amenities, and the surrounding beaches.
The owners, Mario Ottaviano and Lynsey Weatherill, dreamt of having a small luxury bed and breakfast, where guests could unwind in comfort in a peaceful setting. In 2007 construction began in the Valley of Sant Elia, amongst 6 hectares of lush green countryside, and in 2010 the dream was finally realised.
The structure is ecologically friendly, using solar power for most of its energy. The water supply comes from an artesian well bored on the property that is carefully purified at the source and bacteriologically pure.
The building has modern clean lines in keeping with the natural surroundings and the main structure houses the large kitchen, the dining room where patrons are served breakfast in the cooler months and the proprietors' private living quarters. There is also a large salon, surrounded by eight large windows, which offer a beautiful view of the valley.
We are incredibly proud of our vegetable garden and fruit trees at Zia Ni.
We don't use any fertilizers or pesticides, and our seasonal produce is fresh, flavourful and organic.
Growing your own produce allows you to harvest when the food is at its very best and so the fruit from our trees go straight to your breakfast table and the selection is abundant: apricots, medlars, mulberries, watermelon, peaches and pomegranates.
The four spacious suites are nestled under the veranda, and look out over the olive grove.
Each suite is 45 sqm.
Each has been named after fruit trees growing on the property and decorated accordingly: Olive, Fig, Pomegranate and Carob.
The swimming pool is black bottomed, to better fit in with the natural surroundings. It was built along eco friendly guidelines , and is sustained with water from our borehole.Read More
