Agriturismo L’UPUPA is an ancient olive grove overlooking the Ionic Sea. Here we will offer unique holidays where you can share our passion for great food while relaxing in our beautiful unspoiled piece of paradise.
On July 15, 2018 we successfully ended our Crowdfunding campaign with the backing of over 100 supporters. We are very touched for the widespread help and all the great feedback we have received, thank you!

With the support of over 100 L’UPUPA friends, we are working with more energy and more ressources towards opening a sustainable and beautiful Agri-Camping in Salve, LE. At the same time, we are fighting the unstoppable Xyllella Fastidiosa Bacteria that is sweeping over our peninsula.
If you have missed our campaign and would like to fight with us to help our hundreds of year old olives trees to survive this natural disaster, you can now sponsor an olive tree. Contact us for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
