      The gated entrance to this three bedroom property leads you into the living room with a central log burner and traditional, exposed stone walls. To one side of the living room you will find the restored Lamia which now houses the quaint kitchen complete with dining area. To the other side you have the three double bedrooms and two bathrooms. One of the bedrooms has doors which open out onto the garden - 9000 sq. m. of land with olive and fruit trees surrounding the property.

Lecce can be reached in 40 minutes and has countless medieval churches and a great richness of architecture. In town there is also the famous Roman amphibian theatre 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 socialise 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 daytime and nighttime. The townhouses 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.

Surano has a small town centre 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 cost from Santa Maria di Leuca to Gallipoli has many fine sandy beaches. The villages are perhaps not the prettiest but room for the beach life, pizzerias, and restaurants and disco music summer time.
    • Santa Catarina well known also for its many fine villas in the area, some antique.
    • The sea outside of Porto Cesareo further up the coast is probably the most beautiful and fantastic sunsets.
