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.

It’s a stunning villa, recently renovated, functional, with a great attention to detail and ideally designed spaces for the pleasure of sharing while preserving privacy and tranquility. Surano is a small town very pleasant and centrally located to explore the region of Salento, which has enchanted us for the beauty of the sea, hinterland and villages. Patrizia and Roberto welcomed us with great professionalism, communication has always been excellent and thanks to their advice our vacation was even more beautiful. An experience to recommend totally.

We want to leave a note to thank Pat and Robi for their warm welcome. Even though it was 'only' April the children enjoyed the pool and we were able to eat out in the wonderful garden a few times. Thanks again for all the good advice so we could make the most of our stay. I would not hesitate to recommend this villa for a holiday - spacious, beautifully decorated and furnished, well equipped. A great location too, a short walk to the caffeteria and the shops. We also enjoyed the beautiful cities of Castro (a few kms away), Galipolli, Lecce and Otranto. Wish we had had more time to see them all! Thanks again and arrivederci!

Barbara's apartment was bright spacious with fabulous panoramic views of the Adriatic from the extra large south facing terrace and interesting urban views from the bougainvillea shaded corner terrace. We were greeted by Gianni who showed us around the property and presented us with a gigantic bowl of fruit and a lovely bottle of wine. Gianni came to our aid on a couple of occasions during our stay ..when key got stuck in lock.. and he very kindly sourced a car for us for three days when none seemed available in Otranto. I'm guessing the property may have been new to the letting market as whilst there was quite an" eclectic "selection of kitchen items there were a few "gaps" e.g.a kettle, a tea pot, a coffee pot,decent sized cups. The bedrooms were spacious, high ceilinged and pleasantly furnished though my travelling companion remarked that they may have been more suitable for children than adults.Both bathrooms were spotless and bright. The old town of Otranto and the lovely port area were a most pleasant 20 minute walk from the apartment passing the crescent shaped sheltered beach on the way. The water was quite shallow making it very safe for all age groups. A left turn outside the apartment brought you to 2 smaller beaches where the sea was more tidal and also was the starting point to an amazing coastal walk. There was a very well stocked supermarket within 10 minute walk and the restaurants and coffee shops in and on the way to the old town were friendly and of a good standard. For travelling around Puglia a car is necessary. Outside of high season the trains and buses are not reliable Only we are fond of walking and we liked the idea of getting our daily exercise walking to and from the old town we would have been very disappointed that we could nt hire a car in the town. A lovely destination that definately merits another visit !
