Make a holiday apartment in Santa Cesarea Terme your home away from home

The beautiful seaside and spa resort of Santa Cesarea Terme lies on a stretch of the Adriatic Coast in southern Italy, famed for its prehistoric caves, natural woods and lush meadows.  The area is a favourite haunt of nature lovers and forms part of a protected regional coastal park.  Santa Cesarea Terme sits on a rocky outcrop overlooking the sea and is famous for its natural springs.  These are the biggest attractions: visitors come from all over the world to bathe in its sulphur-rich thermal waters and curative muds.  The town itself is an attractive location with seafront promenades lined with cafés, shops and restaurants.

To help guests unwind in style and keep them close to the main sights, HomeAway has a wonderful selection of apartments and holiday villas in Santa Cesarea Terme.  These are beautifully furnished and come with good facilities such as washing machines, freezers and coffee makers, and benefit from excellent locations in town or the surrounding countryside.  There are Santa Cesarea Terme holiday apartments that are close to the sea and enjoy gorgeous views.  For families after beach holidays there are some wonderful sandy expanses in the neighbouring resorts of Otranto and Castro Marina as well as a good selection of rental properties.

Things to do

-Relaxation: By far the biggest reason that travellers rent Santa Cesarea Terme holiday apartments is the town’s thermal baths situated in four grottos. The mineral rich warm waters are believed by some to cure skin and joint ailments, and respiratory diseases.  Massages, mud baths, hot humid inhalations and cosmetic treatments are also available at some of the spa centres.

-Outdoors: The Santa Cesarea Terme area is blessed by nature. Within a few kilometres of the town tourists will find the Grotto Romanelli and Grotto Zinzulusa with its sparkling waters and stalactite and stalagmite formations.  Also nearby is the Porto Badisco coastal park that charms with its unspoiled nature, superb beaches and snorkelling opportunities.  According to mythology the Trojan hero Aeneas landed here after fleeing Troy.

-Architecture: During the late 19th century and early 20th century members of the upper class and aristocracy from Salento used to holiday here.  They have left a rich architectural legacy with Art Nouveau and Art Deco manors and Moorish influenced homes with domes and ornate balconies.

-Nightlife: Santa Cesarea Terme has a good collection of restaurants, cafés and inns that serve regional and international cuisines.  Many stay open until late and offer sea views which are magnificent when there is a full moon.  The many warm evenings allow for al fresco dining for much of the year.

-Fiestas: Santa Cesarea Terme is situated in Puglia, a region known for its fresh produce and gourmet specialities.  Every Easter the resort hosts a festival dedicated to cuddrura, a deep-fried sweet. Though usually made at home it can be found in some of Santa Cesarea Terme’s bakeries.

Charming little house in a Paradise Garden

5 of 5
We are an early-retired couple with a dog & stayed at La Fraula for the last week of May. We like sitting & looking at the sea. Caterina was so kind and patient with our miscalculated early arrival. (Ideally we would have had a drink & just waited but we carry insulin & a hot car is hard to cope with). We were made to feel really welcome & given a tour of the overwhelmingly beautiful garden in which the house is set. Once settled we found the bijou holiday home just right for two. The bed is comfortable (so many holidays are let down by cheap, horrid beds, it’s disappointing to go home aching & tired but not here). The extra sofa beds could do with a few cushions for the limited times when one wants to sit indoors but that would be easily sorted & had we asked for any, I’m sure that Caterina would have been happy to oblige. The garden, as mentioned already, is a delightful haven where most of the day is passed. We aren’t sunbathers but there is ample opportunity to do so and there is proper shade for eating your BBQ (provided) at the table (also provided). The pool is a quirky shape and very deep but just right for a cooling dip when required. We wanted for nothing else to enjoy our time and would definitely stay there again. In fact, we hope to go back in September if possible.

Super Villa and excellent hosts - Will definately return

5 of 5
We had a great stay in Poggiardo, the villa is beautiful and split over 3 floors - ideal for 2 families sharing as there is lots of space and several kitchen areas. The pool is a great depth for swimming and also for children and the sails provide great shade. The owners were really welcoming and gave us great advise on local resturants and cafes, they also recommended a local company for a super boat trip. The Villa is in the centre of this beautiful small town and has all you need, a supermarket is walking distance, a couple of pharmacies, several great places to eat and an amazing coffee shop/ice cream bar. There is the biggest street market I have ever seen in the town on a Wednesday and you can buy everything here. Other days there is a butcher, a fish monger and a cheese and cured meat shop in the town. Within a short drive are some beautiful beaches and sea caves to explore. There is plenty of secure parking, bikes to borrow, table football and a pool table. You could never be bored here. We will definitely re visit. Thank you Andrea and Mary for a super holiday.
