About this listing
The property is composed by two villas, always rented together:
- Big villa (6 people), modern style
- Small villa (4 people), country style.
Both villas are in an enclosed property, surrounded by ancient olive trees, flowers and beautiful vegetation. Behind the villas we have a nice swimming pool and great common spaces, ideal for families and groups.
We are 15 minutes away from the most beautiful beaches of Salento, 5 minutes from pretty white-washed villages, restaurants and svcs
The property is practically a gated community for up to 10-12 people, nested in one of the most beautiful areas of Salento, in the middle of the countryside, yet only 15 minutes by car from the great beaches of Gallipoli, Santa Caterina, Torre San Giovanni, Torre Vado.
The two villas are always rented together, so you will be there with your family and friends, and no one else around.
You will be immersed in silence and peace, surrounded by ancient olive trees, pines, flowers, birds and cycadas.
The structures and facilities are ideal for summertime activities:
- white sand beaches are 15 minutes away by car. Just ask me or Maria Grazia for suggestions.
- swimming pool adjacent to both villas (there is a gate, but please make sure small kids are always with adults). The pool is surrounded by a grass meadow and is nearby a small pine tree area, where you can relax on hammocks
- in the evening, after the beach and when the temperatures get cooler, the areas around the house are ideal for getting together: on the lounge chairs by the big olive tree, by the wrought-iron BBQ, or around the dinner table.
The big Villa - in modern style - sleeps 6 people comfortably (1 master bedroom, 1 twin bedroom, 1 single bedroom), has a complete kitchen, a large living room, a large porch in front of the house, 3 bathrooms plus one external shower (perfect for back-from-the-beach cleaning), washing machine and all amenities.
The Small Villa - partly with vaulted ceilings - sleeps 4 people comfortably (one large bedroom with double-bed plus two single beds), has one bathroom plus external shower, a small kitchen, a nice living room and a front porch.
Both villas are away from the street and have plenty of parking spaces.
Guests have complete access to all parts of the property -- no one else is on the premises but our guests.
The area is 80% gated, so you can let your kids run free, climb trees and pick fruits.
Occasionally you may see the pool maintenance/gardener.
Interaction with guests
My friend Maria Grazia is 5 minutes away by car, and both Maria Grazia and I are always available on the phone.
Smokers are accepted but we kindly ask you to smoke outside of the villas so as to respect our next guests.
Other things to note
There is no Wi-Fi available. We think you will enjoy just spending time with each other in our beautiful property :-))
If you can't resist without connection, please being your own key or cube.
Currently our air conditioning system is not working.
We will provide sheets and linens, plus towels for bathrooms and pool. We do not have beach towels, hence BYO :-)
- i fumatori sono bene accetti, ma non all'interno delle case: il clima del Salento vi consente di fumare negli spazi esterni alle due case!
- Per favore NON non buttare i mozziconi in giro: rispettate gli ospiti che arriveranno dopo di voi, ed evitate pericoli di incendio
- l'utilizzo della piscina è sotto la vostra responsabilità: l'area è recintata e provvista di cancello per evitare pericoli per i più piccoli e per gli animali, però
- non attaccate contemporaneamente tutte le luci esterne (ce ne sono molte), per non far scattare il contatore. Se ci fossero problemi col contatore chiamatemi PRIMA di rimetterlo in funzione.
- godetevi la pace e la tranquillità del posto, rilassatevi e divertitevi ma evitate schiamazzi notturni: nei dintorni ci sono case abitate
