Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Neviano - Villa Vacanze Paradiso
Self catering cottages with fully-equipped kitchens

The Villa Vacanze Paradiso is designed for your every need. You will be able to live the Italian way of life, outside in the perfect weather, and enjoy our accommodation at the same time. The complex sits amid a beautiful walled garden about 6000sq m with olive trees, lawn and flowers, an ideal environment for your family where your children can play safety. We can offer you both self catering cottages and rooms only. Our accommodation are perfect for various sized families, or couples on their own, or, because of the tranquillity and safe environment of Southern Italy, and the friendliness of our staff and the local people, someone on his or her own. There is a swimming-pool suitable for both adults and children in the olive grove. A solarium and shower with deck-chairs and sun-beds offer the added bonus of a beautiful view over the Apulian countryside.A short car journey will bring you to many of the important areas of culture, to enjoy the traditions of the Salento peninsula.

Pizzica express : Italians love Salento, in the unspoilt 'heel' of the country, for its great weather, beaches and party atmosphere. Sue Clayton lets us in on some of its secrets.

Most of us know Puglia only because of its trulli houses and Bari, port for the Greek island ferries. Few venture further south - yet Puglia's lower province, Salento, is pretty special, full of southern Italian ebullience and a heady mix of traditions.

The remains of Greek and Roman temples and pre- historic monuments are scattered all over the dry sierras, popping up amid cactuses, olive groves and tobacco farms.

The coast north of Gallipoli is heavily Arabic in architectural style. In villages around Castrignano dei Greci the dialect is still effectively ancient Greek. At Giurdignano, a prehistoric menhir towers over an underground Byzantine crypt, which is still used today for worship.

But go inland and there are some superb 'classical' Italian towns: Lecce, known as the Florence of the South.

Festivais: Every town and village has a yearly festa, so in summer there's a choice of several to attend every night. Check listings magazine QuiSalento or the local bar or tourist office for dates.

Many involve old religious rites, like the carrying of a Virgin Mary statue around Lecce (August 24-6) or into the sea at Otranto (September 6). Others, like Novoli have bonfires and spectacular fireworks (January 16-17).

Almost all will include the pizzica , a fast and compelling rhythmic dance done to the accompaniment of the tambourine, accordion and violin.

The atmosphere is pulsing, whether it's a modest village festa or the August event in Melpignano, which has international guest stars and attracts audiences of 15,000.

Thousands of lights and torches create a carnival atmosphere. The pizzica band will start playing at 11pm and when the whole shebang gets going, you'd be pushed to match the spacey atmosphere at any nightclub.

Towns: Salento's capital, Lecce, is a must. As well as the castle, the marvellous churches of Santa Croce and Chiesa del Rosario and the Palazzo Vescovile, there's a market on Mondays and Fridays around the central Piazza St Oronzo with local produce and ceramics and majolica from Grottaglie, the original home of terracotta.

Nearby is Oria, its steep winding streets leading to a massive Gothic castle and battlements. Below, next to a bizarre Renaissance-style gendarmeria, is Caffé Visconti (Piazza Mandfredi 26), a very superior enoteca - wine cellar - built into the old Roman walls. It serves simple food and over 50 local vintages - look out for Salice Salentino, much loved by the cognoscenti; ruby-red, slightly frizzante, but robust and full of fruit.

We (couple with baby) stayed here for 1 week in June. It was a very pleasant week, most of all because of the friendly hospitable people that run and own the property. They make you feel very welcome, give you good advices and make it a pleasure to be there. The house is complete and has a comfortable outside dining area. The garden is beautiful and there is plenty of shadow places. There is a nice pool, essential for cooling down in the afternoon. You need a car to go around in the area.

We stayed one week in Villa Paradiso and it was perfect! The house was very clean, well equiped, a quiet,relaxing place. But above all you feel the passion of the owner for this place, with the beautifull garden! It's hard to find such places and we hope that it will stay this way.
Very kind people who really make you feel their guest!

A place to come back........Anette en Hennie

We are from Australia and booked a villa through the internet. We simply wanted and villa close to both Lecce and Gallipoli. We were delighted to find that our villa was modern, well appointed and set in beautiful manicured
gardens. The complex is peaceful, quiet and very relaxing. It is also an artists wonderland with an exciting mix of flowering plants and brilliant colored walls and ornaments. The weather was pleasantly sunny every day. The owners and staff were friendly, helpful and committed to making your holiday a happy and rewarding experience. We loved it and we are sure others will too.

Sometimes you find a place where everything is perfect. Villa Vacanze Paradiso is such a place!We were there two times and we will return again for sure.
It is a place where children can play very safely, they can not leave the garden because there is a big gate. There is also a nice swimming pool (where both our children learned to swim)
The houses and the garden are beautifull!
Last but not least the people are all very nice!
Paolo, Louisa, Maurizio and all the others, thanks for your hospitality! Hopefully we will see you again soon!
