The villa is set in the heart of the Salento countryside, a wonderfully rustic and timeless part of Puglia in the deep south of Italy. It is extremely well-appointed, with modern facilities throughout and a huge terrace surrounding the entire property, ideal for eating, relaxing and sunbathing. The villa has been insulated to keep it pleasantly cool even during the hottest months, but there is also free air-con in the bedrooms and ceiling fans throughout. There are two double bedrooms, 2 shower rooms (one en-suite), free wi-fi, and a family-sized kitchen with dishwasher and washing machine. The living area has a TV with a large library of recent films, and a sofa bed providing extra sleeping capacity for 2 further guests.
We have a hectare of land with olive groves, fruit trees and a vineyard, a stone BBQ, and we are developing a garden with lawn and local flora. There is a swimming pool (June - September) with its own dedicated terrace available for guests' exclusive and private use. The villa is peaceful and secluded, with the owners living only 100m away and always on hand to provide any advice or assistance.We are conveniently located in the middle of the Salento region, 20 minutes from the nearest beach and within striking distance of the entire peninsula. Salento has remained unchanged for generations: it is covered with thousands of acres of olive trees, has historic towns and villages, a spectacular coastal road, and countless beaches and coves. Although popular with Italian holidaymakers, it is seldom visited by foreign tourists and the locals will invariably give you a warm welcome. We are also less than half an hour from the wonderful Baroque city of Lecce, probably one of the most beautiful, atmospheric and yet least-visited of major Italian cities. A holiday in Salento is ideal for people who enjoy beach life, or exploring little-known corners of the Mediterranean - or who just want to relax in comfort, soaking up the summer sun.
