About this listing

An old 19th century building in the local stone (pietra leccese), the house has been recently restored.
The house consists of a living-room with kitchen, a toilet with shower, two bedrooms (the master's bedroom and one with three beds).
A nice terrazzo with a view to the sea and a garden are the highlights of the house.
At only a few steps from the beach, the house is 12 kilometers from the Lecce and at about 10 kilometers from Torre dell'Orso and 20 from Otranto.

The space

The house has two bedrooms, one master bedroom and a small one, with three beds. A fireplace has been recently built in the kitchen. Furniture is simple and comfortable. Being a traditional house with wide walls, the place is fresh even in the hottest summer days.

Guest access

The complete house will be available for you. You may accede the Internet by connecting to the local ifi network (Lecce Città Wireless).

Interaction with guests

I will personally give you the keys. I may be contacted through the airbnb website. My mobile number is available.

the house is a perfect place for a quite and romantic vacation. it is very well planned and desighned it would especialy perfectly suite for a family with children- every one would have a prived zone, playing zone for children and relax for parents. it has a really huge terrase with a see view, little but nice garden- perfect for outdoor breakfast or a dinner. the house is decorated with care and love- you feel like at home here. San Cataldo is a very quite place but has everything you need- restaurants, supermarket, water sports. the beach is very nice especially for children and for non-confident swimmers ( like me) the water is warm even after rain. San cataldo is close to Lecce (15 min by care, 40 with a public bus) and there are a lot of interesting things to see if you have a car ( if not- with public transport is also reachable). Marianno is a perfect host! he showed the area with useful advices and send me a lot of usefull links about sight seeng and how to get them by public transport. I did not managed to see all of them- the area is so reach for it, but I hope to come here again!

We had a great time at Mariano's beautiful house! He received us warmly and was helpful and reachable when needed! Great location to get around different spots in Salento with the car. Would definitely suggest and/or stay again!

We had a wonderful time in San Cataldo, the house is even nicer then on the photos, Marziano was a great host, the beach was really close. We felt like being home!

Mariano e la moglie ci hanno accolti in modo fantastico facendoci trovare tagliata di frutta, pizza e bevande fresche. San Cataldo è lontana dallo stereotipo del Salento affollatissimo, e di notte c'è un silenzio fantastico. Un piacere occuparsi del giardino. Ogni tanto Mariano ci ha inviato utilissimi suggerimenti turistici (graditi ed affidabili). Non granché il wifi ed un piccolo problema alla doccia. La posizione è ottima, consente di raggiungere Otranto e Gallipoli in 30-40 minuti (Lecce, meravigliosa, in 10 minuti).

Tutto perfetto, anche gli spazi esterni e il lastrico solare esclusivo con vista mare, distante una cinquantina di metri cioè un minuto con le infradito! Consigliatissimo. Il paese è tranquillo ma ben servito, può anche servire come base per le numerose escursioni possibili.

Grazie alle attenzioni ed alla disponibilità di Mariano la vacanza è stata piacevolissima. Appartamento accogliente, pulito, ordinato, provvisto di panoramicissimo terrazzo e molto vicino alla spiaggia. È stata una esperienza estremamente positiva.

I have recently started using Airbnb and it has been a positive experience. Living in real houses gives you a nice feeling. The old house you may see in my listing has belonged to my family since 1912. It is a place of the heart where I live only some weeks in August. Since I think it is a wonderful place, I want to share it with other people, giving them the opportunity to live in a small piece of history.

Ho cominciato da poco ad utilizzare airbnb e mi sono trovato benissimo. Abitare in appartamenti che altri mettono a disposizione è una bella esperienza. La casa al mare che metto a disposizione appartiene alla mia famiglia dal 1912. E' una casa a cui sono molto legato, che uso in genere solo ad agosto. Allora perché non condividerla, dando anche ad altri la possibilità di vivere in un piccolo pezzo di storia?
