A holiday for nature lovers & gourmands alike.

The property is in the Costal National Park Otranto-Leuca at the centre of the beautiful Salento region of Apulia, famous for the beauty of its towns, countryside and sea. The house is on 2.5 acres of land, rich with olive, fig, orange and almond trees, as well as an organic vegetable & fruit garden. All food growing on the land, as well as our home-made olive oil & tomato sauce, is available for our guests to enjoy. The Marittima di Diso centre with cafes, a pharmacy and 3 grocery stores is just 1km away. By day you can lie on the beach, go sailing, biking and scuba diving in the natural caves or take a break at the spas of Santa Cesarea Terme. By night you can get lost in the beautiful architecture of Lecce (the Florence of the South) or have fun in the nearby medieval villages of Otranto, Gallipoli and Castro with their restaurants and nightlife.

The 150 year old Pajara is a typical example of "vernacular architecture" developed by local farmers of the Salento region. At a time when every meter of land mattered, families expanded their farms by pulling stones out of the rocky ground until they created viable soil. They found a use for those stones, in building Pajaras for the purpose of having a refuge from the summer heat. Form followed function, as the builders conceived of a barrel vaulted ceiling to help hot air escape through the top, making the inside naturally cool and fresh. In 2007 the house was renovated for modern comforts, while maintaining the original design and rich historic elements. The pajara has two rooms and a large (60 square meters) shaded patio overlooking the vegetable and fruit garden, the olive trees and the sea. The main room with high vaulted barrel ceilings has a double bed and a bathroom with a shower. The second room next to it is a fully equipped kitchen. The patio has a large wooden table with chairs, a cooking area with a stone sink and a fire place with barbecue, and two hammocks to enjoy and watch the stars at night.

The Puglia region

Puglia has everything to offer in a sunny region with warm people, amazing landscapes and great food. The summer weather is always beautiful, warm and breezy.

The Salento region has Lecce as its artistic capital with its unique Baroque architecture. Around Lecce there are many cute, little towns surrounded by the rolling hills of the countryside with olive trees, stone walls and vineyards.

There is over 150km of coastline of long beautiful beaches and high cliffs dotted with sea caves.

Castro Marina

Marittima di Diso and Castro Marina are the towns closest to the property. Marittima is a lovely village of 3,000 people, 1 KM inland, immersed in nature. Castro Marina is a medeival village on the sea. It has a touristic harbour where you can rent a boat and go to see the worldwide famous Grotta Zinzulusa.

There are two beautiful squares on the sea with bars, restaurants, artisanal craft shops, and other amenities. Both towns have sport facilities. The sea is easily accessible and most of the people go to the beautiful Insenatura Acquaviva, one of the many local coves of the area.

"A fantastic experience in a wonderful setting!"

From the exceptional communication prior to the holiday; to the wonderfully warm welcome in beautiful Puglia, the Arseni family could not have done more for us. The property was truly amazing; the buildings themselves and the bountiful vegetable and fruit garden which we really made great use of! The olive wood BBQ on the patio made great fun of cooking the local freshly caught seafood and meat from the local butchers. The local beach Aquaviva was stunning and a refreshing place to swim in the gorgeous Adriatic Sea. We had a fabulous holiday and fell in love with Puglia!
