Description

Palatial Town House over looking the main square of a baroque village on the out skirts of Lecce (Puglia) Italy.
This handsome house has recently been renovated and has all the necessary modern comforts and amenities.
The downstairs rooms all have the traditional star shaped ceilings and are very luminous. From the two principal rooms one has a spectacular view of the town's 'Palazzo Ducale' and the 'Duomo'. The upstairs living room has a functional fireplace and leads on to a large open air terrace with extended views.

Lecce, often referred to as the Florence of the south, is Puglia's answer to the baroque; a glorious architectural confection of palaces and churches intricately sculpted from the soft local sandstone. It's a lively, graceful university town packed with upmarket boutiques, antique shops, restaurants and bars. Both the Adriatic and Ionian Seas are within easy access and it's a great base from which to explore the Salento.

These coast boast streches of glorious beaches which accommodate both sand and rock lovers. The waters here are crystalline clear. The area is also mainly flat and therefore a mecca for cyclists both foreign and local.

Gastronomy is high on the Puglian agenda and is known for its diversity and mediterranean authenticity. Traditionally 'contadino' food the local dishes are both rich in earth and sea based products. Over the years both the local 'Primitivo' and the 'Negroamaro' have become favourites among wine lovers.

Location description from owner

The Puglia region

The Salento is the perfect place to enjoy the best of the Southern Italian lifestyle, enriched by ebullience and a heady mix of traditions.

The remains of Greek and Roman temples and pre- historic monuments are scattered all over the dry sierras, popping up amid cactuses, olive groves and vineyards

Until the recent past, Salento was quite poor and isolated but is now enjoying a cultural renaissance and celebrating its spicy mix of ancestors and influences.

Add to this some pretty impressive beaches, baking sun and a general desire to party to musical styles from pizzica to house, and you can see why the Italians themselves love the place so much.

A visit to the stiletto of Italy is a must!

San Cesario di Lecce

Salento's capital, Lecce, is a baroque marvel. As well as the castle, the marvellous churches of Santa Croce and Chiesa del Rosario and the Palazzo Vescovile, there's a market on Mondays and Fridays around the central Piazza St Oronzo with local produce and ceramics and majolica from Grottaglie, the original home of terracotta.

Gallipoli is an architectural gem. The old town is on an island, reached by an arched bridge which is flanked by a spectacular Graeco-Roman fountain. Reminiscent of Trieste, Gallipoli's buildings pick up a subtle reflected light from the sea in the sunsets.

The east coast of Salento is mainly rocky with many old fortifications, while the west is flatter with sandy beaches.
The biggest resort is Otranto on the east coast, a grand fortified town important in Roman times but now dedicated solely to seaside fun.

Down the coast from Otranto is Santa Cesarea Terme, a spa since Roman times. The spa today, open for treatments, is a huge 19th-century Moroccan-style edifice right on the seafront, painted in jaunty shades of blue, raspberry-pink and moss-green.

In summer beach clubbing is the order of the evening. Prepare to dance till dawn then crawl on to a beach-lounger and watch the stars shine and the waves roll in.

Due to its relatively flat terrain cycling is very popular in the area as is golf . The Salento boast a variety of 18 hole clubs with equally stunning locations.
