The space

Serene Villa Ilaria is nestled in the heart of Puglia's incredibly fertile Val di Cupa, a valley once referred to as the Tivoli Gardens of Lecce and now known as the Florence of the South.

Embedded in the wonderful aromatic foliage of the Pugliese countryside, Villa Ilaria is 8 mins from the exquisite historical Baroque City of Lecce and a mere 20 minutes from the sandy beaches along the pristine waters of the Adriatic and Ionian Seas.
