Make A Holiday Rental Apartment in Alessano, Italy, Your Home Away From Home

Situated in the Lecce province of Italy, Alessano makes a wonderful place to take a holiday. Relatively undisturbed by the mass tourism that has plagued other parts of Italy, life here still goes on at a more relaxed pace. The best way to experience this is by renting self catering accommodation in Alessano. This way, you will get more of a feel for this quiet town and its people far better than if you were staying in an hotel. A holiday rental apartment in Alessano comes with all the facilities that you would expect to make your stay a comfortable and happy one.

Things to Do on Holiday in Alessano, Italy

Alessano is ideally located in the countryside, but only minutes away from the coast by car. There are many beaches which are accessible from around the Salentine peninsula, where sunbathing and swimming are ever popular. During the summer, jet skiing, water skiing and diving also make pleasant diversions. Holidays in Alessano are all about experiencing a slower pace of life, and during the evening, a stroll around this historic town and dinner in a seafood restaurant is a wonderful way to end the day.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Alessano, Italy

There is much to see and do in the general area around Alessano, and so a hire car should be considered if you are thinking of taking a holiday here. Olive groves dot the landscape, and some of the small fishing villages can be very quaint. The larger city of Lecce is less than an hour by car, and is worth a day trip to see some of the Roman remains there. Add into the mix historic towns such as Gallipoli, and it may seem that two weeks is not enough time to fully appreciate the area whilst on holiday in Alessano.

Weather in Alessano, Italy

Alessano is blessed with the classic Mediterranean climate, which means there are hot, dry summers and mild winters. This means that a holiday in Alessano can be taken at almost any time of year. During the winter, the temperature very rarely dips below 10 degrees Celsius; whilst the summer top temperatures can be as high as the mid-thirties degrees. If you are thinking of taking a vacation in the height of summer, then it might be wise to choose a holiday rental villa in Alessano that has air conditioning. October and November prove to be the wettest months, with just over 19 inches of rainfall during the whole year.

Travel to Alessano, Italy

Whilst some people may choose to drive to their self catering accommodation in Alessano, most will fly. The nearest airport, although called the Lecce Papola Casale Airport (BDS) is actually located near Brindisi. Flights arrive here courtesy of Ryanair from London Stansted (STN). The airport is also serviced by easyJet, TUI and Air Italy. Hiring a rental car and collecting it from the airport is probably the best way to get to Alessano, and that will also give you the mobility and independence to get around the region at your leisure.

The villa is really spacious and the open plan kitchen/living area works very well. The pool provided welcome early morning and evening dips and it was also lovely to eat out on the patio and read/lounge under the trees in the garden. A great 'goody bag' greeted us which saved our lives when we arrived - many thanks for that! The villa is really well placed to explore the area. Highlights for us were Gallipoli, Lecce, Otranto, Castro (including a boat trip), Matera (a longish drive - wouldn't have done it with young children) and the many different beaches, from wide sandy ones to little rocky coves. It feels like real value for money in terms of the space that you get. Dave was very responsive and helpful too. Thanks for helping us to have a great holiday.

Our expectations were not just met but exceeded in every way. Eligio was an amazing, warm and generous host and nothing was too much trouble. The villa was immaculately clean, well appointed and set in an olive grove overlooking the sea. The atmosphere was tranquil and relaxing, a perfect setting to unwind from our busy lives. The nearest small town of Capilungo was very quiet but scenery quite captivating. Our favourite beach was between San Giovanni and Torre Mozza, a stretch of perfect golden sand and clear blue sea with few people there, only 20 minutes drive away and far better than the well known 'Maldives' beach. We drove to Racale most evenings to eat in a few of the wonderful local restaurants and enjoyed a weekend of festivities. We also visited the beautiful town of Lecce which was unmissable for the amazing architecture and cobbled streets. If you are looking for quiet stunning beaches, a warm welcome, fantastic food and an authentic Italian experience then this is the place to go! Thank you Eligio
