The villa is extremely well-appointed, with modern facilities throughout and a huge terrace surrounding the entire property, ideal for eating, relaxing and sunbathing. The whole villa has been insulated to keep it pleasantly cool even during the hottest months, with ceiling fans in all living areas and free air conditioning in the bedrooms for those who prefer it - all to ensure a good night's sleep. There is a washing machine, a very well-equipped kitchen with dishwasher, a large flat-screen TV with hundreds of recent English-language films to enjoy (as well as Italian TV!), a built-in wood or coal BBQ next to the terrace, solar panels for hot water, and an additional outside shower. We have a hectare of land with olive groves, fruit trees and a vineyard, and we are developing a garden with lawn and local flora. A swimming pool with its own dedicated terrace is available for guests' exclusive and private use. The villa is peaceful and secluded, with the owners living only 100m away and always on hand to provide any advice or assistance. We are conveniently located in the middle of the Salento region, 20 minutes from the nearest beach and within striking distance of the entire peninsula. Salento has remained unchanged for generations: it is covered with thousands of acres of olive trees, has historic towns and villages, a spectacular coastal road, and countless beaches and coves. Although popular with Italian holidaymakers, it is seldom visited by foreign tourists and the locals will invariably give you a warm welcome. We are also less than half an hour from the wonderful Baroque city of Lecce, probably one of the most beautiful, atmospheric and yet least-visited of major Italian cities. A holiday in Salento is ideal for people who enjoy beach life, or exploring little-known corners of the Mediterranean - or who just want to relax in comfort, soaking up the summer sun. *More

About the neighbourhood
The villa is situated in the province of Salento, the south-easternmost region of Italy and surrounded by the Adriatic to the east and the Ionian to the west. The coastline is within easy reach and is exceptional, with every kind of seascape from small rocky coves to long sandy beaches. During July and August, the northern Italians arrive – often staying in the same apartment year after year – and suddenly the coastline is buzzing day and night, transformed by the Italians' love of sun, sea and sand. Inland, the summer evenings are filled with festivals – sometimes there seems to be a 'festa' every evening, with fireworks and partying late into the night. One to catch is the 'Tarantella' festival, featuring a series of performances of this energetic and mysterious local dance, accompanie...
