Lovely authentic Mediterranean village house with courtyard & terraces on a piazza in the old centre of a typical Southern Italian village. Quirky and full of character, renovated with love mixing original features with contemporary pieces. Step through the door into another world. A bit Greek, Moroccan, Italian. This is my home not a typical holiday house and would suit those who want to experience the real Italy, worlds away from life back home, who enjoy things that are beautiful and unusual.

The space

My house is surprisingly spacious and labyrinthine with plenty of inside and outside spaces and two sets of outside stone steps leading up to the bedrooms and terraces. You can walk around the house in a circle.
The main bedroom has a comfy double bed, stone floor with rugs and a nice view into the courtyard below and to the church bell tower. Air-conditioning
The second bedroom can be arranged as a double or twin and has access to the top terrace. Air-conditioning
The house easily accommodates four but there is more space and a further bedroom which could be available. Just ask if you are interested.
There are two bathrooms, one upstairs with a basin, toilet and bath and one downstairs with a basin, bidet, toilet and shower. Also there are several other rooms and outside spaces spread over two floors including a morrocan style dining area, rustic Italian kitchen, private sunny terrace with large dining table upstairs and a pretty courtyard as you enter the house from the piazza. Easy free parking right outside.

Guest access

There is a private room which I use as storage and keep locked. However, I do sometimes offer this to guests if extra space is needed. The whole of the rest of the house is accessible for guests.

Interaction with guests

There is a box full of guide books, maps, tips for restaurants and beaches etc. at the house and I am happy to advise on places to go and things to see.

Other things to note

The layout of my house makes it perfect for a couple, family or a few friends. Because of the nature of this old house with some uneven floors and steps it best suits older children. If you have young children do call me to discuss it.

This is a great base to explore Salento from - great beaches, restaurants and sites all a short drive away. The house is full of character and charm, near a useful and nice village centre. Jude is a lovely lady who knows how to make you feel at home - this is a great place for a family! Enjoyed our time in this special place.

The house it's very special, in the Middle of the old village of "Bagnolo del Salento". Everithing it's near the house and it's a good position to Travel around Salento.

fantastic house in a lovely village off the beaten track, full of very friendly locals. if your looking for something away from all the hustle and bustle of modern life look no further and it still has two wonderful restaurants and two local bars with local prices. Colm

This part of Italy is my favourite because of the light, the sea, the amazingly friendly people, delicious food and slower pace of life. I chose my house as it is very Mediterranean, full of character and the perfect place to live the Southern Italian life for a while.
