In the dining room there is also a sofa bed for 2 people.There is also a fully equipped kitchen.

The Puglia/Molise region
Puglia is in the south of Italy, a region surrounded by the Adriatic Sea and the Ionian Sea.It' s famous
for ancient history, the ruins of Greek and Romans temples and prehistoric monuments; for the marvellous rocky and sandy beaches, the beautiful and unique baroque style of its cities, and for the fertile land that gives oil and wine of excellent quality.
Penisola Salentina is rich with incredible towns: Lecce is the most famous. You can visit the castle, the marvellous churches of Santa Croce and Chiesa del Rosario and the Palazzo Vescovile. It's nice to see the market on Mondays and Fridays around the central Piazza St Oronzo, with local produce and ceramics from Grottaglie, the original home of terracotta. Lecce by night is amazing.
Otranto was a Greek colony which became subject to Roman rule. The town was a stronghold of Catholic civilization, resisting Turkish invasion on many occasions. Otranto was liberated by Ferdinand of Aragon who then fortified it. Today, you can visit the Aragonese Castle, the bastions and the gates to the town.
You can also visit the Cathedral of Otranto and its chapel where the bones of Otranto’s 800 martyrs are shown, as well as the crypt and mosaic floor (the biggest in the world) created by the monk Pantaleone.
One of the most ancient towns in Salento, you can see a prehistoric menhir towers over an underground Byzantine crypt.
Giurdignano is a small village of 1000 inhabitants situated in the beautiful country side surrounded by olive trees just 5 km away from the beautiful sea of Otranto. It is famous for the presence of megalithic monuments, such as dolmen or menhir, the early medieval ruins of the monastery "Le Centoporte", of several criptas, of which the most famous the church-cripta of San Salvatore, of two hipogean tombs of the eneolitic period (II millennium B.C.).
The coast is long and varied .The sea is uncontaminated and turquoise( TURK’S BAY is an incredible beach).
