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.

I'm almost tempted to write a bad review just so the house doesn't get fully booked up for the future. The host was very helpful and I would like to thank her for letting us stay at her beautiful house.

Used as a base to explore the Salento peninsula - Lucca, Gallipoli, Otranto, Porto Cesaro, etc etc. Favourite restaurant, a must visit, is Percuoco A Santa Caterina, several minutes walk from the apartment. Highly recommended.
