Beautiful, charming villa near Otranto. The large courtyard is adorned with a beautiful design pool (just renovated) and a pergola with a 4 m table for dining outside. Ideal for two families.

The space

Beautiful, charming palazzo in the Otranto area. The summer nights are normally cool and dry, full of pleasant scents. The silence of the place is quite impressive even in the busiest August nights. The large courtyard is adorned with a beautiful design pool. Here, all the house guests gather at sunset for drinks or dinner.

Part of the charm of this house is the construction that reflects the style of an Old Masseria. The Milan based architect reproduced the same design of Masserias using all local stone and material. It has a loft style living room with a fireplace and a big table that can sit 14 people. Hanging on the walls large art works belonging to the private collection of the owners and many design objects. There is private use of the pool.

The first floor includes a large dining area with island kitchen, well equipped, and two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. There are three more bedrooms
downstairs and one bathroom.

Some of our clients' comments:

"We had a fantastic holiday in Palazzo! We love the house, it is very comfortable and nicely decorated. The bedrooms are spacious with comfortable beds and bathroom ensuite. They provide towels for the bathroom and also for the swimmingpool. The open plan kitchen is well equipped and provided everything to serve a lunch or dinner...

The garden with pool is in real much bigger than you would expected from the photos. There is a lot of space to play for children, in and around the house, safe because of the walled garden.

The place is so relaxed, that you almost forget that it is situated in one of the best area's of Italy. There are lots of things to see and do and everything within one hour ride, like Lecce, Gallipoli, Leuca and Santa Cesarea. The village Giurdignano has supermarkets, bakerys and some nice restaurants within walking distance.

Priscilla and Daniele are amazing hosts and were very flexible when we decided to stay longer, we didn't want to leave the house and wanted to explore more of Puglia...see you again next year!

I would like recommend the house to everyone who likes a holiday in a stylish environment within a typical laidback and authentic atmosfere that Puglia has to offer." (client quote)

"what an atmosphere and design in the house. You have done a really great job with the architecture and the material. Fantastica relaxing vacation" (client quote)

"thank you so much for the lovely house, great pool very entertaining for the kids. daniele was so kind and helpful in everything, he also organised a wonderful boat trip in Leuca and a wine degustazion in a small towm. the best is the courtyard and the garden of the house, so relaxing and stylished.. the art works are amazing. we cooked a lot outside on the grill and had very pleasant dinners on the big table outiside with all the family. we loved also the people of giurdignano so kind and helpful. the best caffé with ice and mandorla ever at Bar dello sport! hope to come back soon and try all the other houses" (client quote)

Car is necessary. Grocery stores, restaurants, shops, coffee bar, etc, at walking distance.

Giurdignano is one of the smallest towns south of Lecce, never too crowded but also never too empty (e,g, in the winter). Very safe. The sea of Otranto, just 5 minutes, is one of the finest in Italy. In Otranto there is a private beach with shaded area and a small restaurant which we normally suggest. Otherwise, there are many places that you can discover if you are more on the adventurous side.

This is a lovely and deceptively spacious house in a beautiful village just outside Otranto. It has everything you want for a relaxing stay with all the benefits of being able to walk to shops, bar and some lovely restaurants. The pool, whilst not enormous, is brilliantly designed so that you can have a proper swim and the outside pergola is a wonderful place to sit an eat. Priscilla and Alessandro were very quick to respond to any queries and gave many helpful suggestions. Thoroughly recommended. Thank-you!

La Romantic Villa è davvero risultata perfetta e spaziosa per ospitare un gruppo numeroso come il nostro, ognuno poteva tranquillamente trovare il suo spazio. Grazie anche a Daniele per averci offerto l'aperitivo di benvenuto e per la sua disponibilità. La cucina è il luogo più fantastico, arredata con gusto, molto ampia, con tutto il necessario per poter cucinare, vettovaglie in abbondanza per la nostra "Big Family". Le camere sono ampie, con letti abbastanza comodi, come pure i bagni e docce. L'area esterna con il barbecue è meravigliosa, la piscina per rinfrescarsi dal grande caldo è stata di vitale importanza.

Soggiorno da favola lontano dal trambusto e dalla confusione del Salento. A pochi chilometri dalle spiagge di Otranto, in un paese tranquillo in stile barocco pugliese, la casa è una palazzo storico ristrutturato con tutti i comfort senza perdere l'autenticità che si ricerca in un viaggio in Puglia. Spazi enormi adatti anche a grandi gruppi di persone, piscina da sogno e facilità di parcheggio di fronte all'ingresso di casa. Ottimo il servizio di accoglienza e di assistenza per ogni necessità da parte del casiere Daniele.
