A further 10 minutes to the south is the beautiful nature reserve TORRE GUACETO by the sea. It offers an attractive escape from beach resorts as here you find unspoiled beaches and no cars allowed. The parking is at the visitor's center and there are organized nature walks, cycle trekking and snorkeling trips.
The villa has the advantage of being not far from main areas of world interest such as the mile long caves of CASTELLANA; the archaeological excavations of the Roman EGNATIA by the Adriatic coast line; the Trullo houses of ALBEROBELLO - an UNESCO World heritage site: the medieval town of ORIA; the wealthy baroque town of MARTINA FRANCA; the petite and charming CISTERNINO, the Zoo Safari Park of FASANO (lots of fun for children and adults alike); the caves of POLIGNANO A MARE, well known also for its tasty ice cream; GROTTAGLIE famous for its ceramics and old stone carvings; Matera, the ancient cave town and an UNESCO world heritage site< and last but not least the famous baroque city of LECCE which is called the Florence of the South. Lecce can be reached in 50 minutes and has countless medical churches and a great richness of architecture. In town there is also the famous Roman amphibian theater which is used for music and drama performances in the open during the summer season. Lecce is a wonderful town for long walks, enjoying the fantastic atmosphere, bars, outside restaurants and, naturally, great shops.
Further to the south, inland SALENTO have a number of historical charming villages with ancient history. The advantage to stay in a village is to be able to socialize with Italian neighbors, to walk to the cafe and buy a newspaper and a cup of coffee in the morning and having all amenities within reach day time and night time. The town houses often come with a garden and roof terrace and its fascination to open the simple door from the street - and inside almost like a little palace with a garden!
In Sternatina and Martignano to the south of Lecce antique Greek is still spoken by the villagers.
MAGLIE is like a mini Lecce and with many fine buildings. MURO LECCESE is smaller and also represent a small town/village with a fine architectural history. Cutrofiano popular for French holiday home ownership. RUFFANO has many fine old buildings for sale, waiting to find new owners and to be restored. Surano has a small town center with very nice antique buildings for sale. SPONGANO again is a small village surrounded by olive groves. Here you can see secluded great villas and country retreats owned by foreigners and families from North Italy who come to relax in rural Salento.
The east coast of Salento is rougher than the south west and for people who enjoy the sea and fishing. Somewhat more elegant than the east coast. CASTRO is beautiful with its location on top of the cliff by the sea and many villas with direct access to the sea. SANTA CESAREA TERME is a spa resort, very popular with a beautiful setting and bay.
