International Chess Open - ALIMINI VILLAGE

Haven't you decided yet which tournament to choose or where to go for a holiday? What about enjoying them both in Italy?!
The organizers of the International Chess Tournament - Alimini Village 2011 have the pleasure and honor to invite you all, between 21st and 28th of May, in a splendid location, for an event to remember.

The Village of Serra Alimini 1 is located north of Otranto (loc. Alimini lakes) in the pristine nature of the Adriatic coast of Salento: a fragrant pine forest separates it from a fine sandy beach and clear blue sea from the Caribbean colors. In a superb 4 stars resort you can enjoy a 9 round Swiss tournament, an unmissable opportunity for high-level chess, cultural events and different sport activities. All in the beautiful setting of Otranto and Apulia region, a unique landscape of rugged, reddish territory, villages of white-painted houses, with magnificent churches and palaces, witnesses of the historical heritage of crossroads of cultures. Also the local cuisine shows traits of the Arab, Spanish and Greek dishes, and the local dialect has many similarities with ancient Greek.
