The one and only SWING CAMP!
“LE CALE D’OTRANTO” Resort is going to be the “base” of all the lindy-hoppers arriving for the weekend. Here’s where the lessons will take place and where the accommodation and the restaurant are situated. The location is called “Torre Santo Stefano”, Otranto, the province of Lecce in the spectacular Salento. The Resort is overlooking the crystal clear waters of a bay, palms and cypresses that seem to be touching the sky. It is immerged in the local vegetation, mostly antient olive groves, pine forests and the Mediterranean scrub, all that surrended by transparent waters where the Adriatic sea meats the Ionian sea. In case that wasn’t enough, there is a second cove on the inside of the Resort, called Rada della Caréula, which is very discreet and cozy, formed of the smaller coves and a cave. An amazing natural swimming pool where the beauty of this place reaches its peak.
NOT ONLY LESSONS!
That’s right, there is far more to do on the inside of this 55ha Resort area other than sunbathing or having a swim in the sea. You will have an opportunity (for free) to use the tennis courts, a football pitch or a swimming pool with its various water activities, or go hiking in the meadows, woods and pine forests, all of which overlooking the sea! There is something for everyone! And to make it happen, the lindy hop and jazz solo workshops will be held only in the afternoon (the time in which the temperatures are slightly lower).
The Resort has a close bond with the territory entirely built in "pietra Leccese" (* a light yellow, easily worked limestone present in many local historical buildings) and that is the reason why the Mediterranean style rooms of the Resort are built with the very same stone, on both the ground and first floor. They are all surrounded by the peaceful park, overlooking the main bay and the Resort square.
