Perfectly situated nice house and garden

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful 10 days stay in this nice house in Torre dell Orso in July 2012. There was a calm rocky beach 100 m from the house where we had our daily morning swim. The big sandy beach was also very close to the house so we could easily walk home for lunch.

We were two small families sharing the house and there was space enough for us all. We especially liked the garden where we could choose whether to stay in the sun or in the shadow during the day. The garden also had a shower that was perfect to use after the beach as well as for morning or night shower. And the sea view was really amazing!

We think Torre dell Orso is a perfect place to spend a summer holiday in. Many restaurants with different dishes and small shops with fruit and food stuffs for your daily needs.

During our stay we only heard Italian so this is a place still not discovered by tourists from other countries.

Vacanze memorabili

  • 5 of 5

Se la “buona stella” ti segue anche in vacanza………allora hai la fortuna di incontrare la meravigliosa Sig.ra Elisa che con Villa Xanadu’ può rendere memorabile la tua vacanza in Salento.

Torre dell’Orso è un posto incantevole, situato in un perfetto crocevia con altre località note e meno note del Salento ma comunque degne di interessi di vario tipo.

La struttura della villa è molto gradevole, lontana dai rumori, semplice e lineare situata sul belvedere della cittadina ed è resa particolarmente originale da riprese di mosaici blu e celesti che si intonano perfettamente con i colori del mare, quel meraviglioso mare che si può in ogni attimo della giornata e in tutte le condizioni metereologiche ammirare dalla splendida vetrata del salone che sembra precipitare direttamente sulla scogliera antistante.

La spiaggia super attrezzata è situata a soli due minuti di passeggiata dalla villa. Girato l’angolo, invece, ci si trova immediatamente nel centro storico della cittadina perfettamente servito da tutto ciò che può necessitare ad una famiglia in vacanza, giostre incluse per i più piccoli. Che altro dire?

La villa è fornita del “necessaire” per una comoda vacanza dal bbq alla doccia esterna, dal tavolo da giardino per 8 pax, dalle comodissime sdraio a tutti gli accessori utili per la cucina, dall’asciuga capelli a tutta la biancheria morbida e profumata come asciugata al sole in aperta campagna: insomma c’è proprio tutto.

Il salone è molto vivibile con comodi divani e tavolo da pranzo allungabile. Le stanze da letto sono tre, semplici ma funzionali. I bagni sono due e molto comodi. La cucina è vivibile, in muratura, creata con buon gusto dove ci muove liberamente senza interferire con gli addetti ai fornelli.

La Sig.ra Elisa pensa proprio a tutto permessi per entrare nel centro storico inclusi: anche l’auto ha il suo proprio posto nel giardino!!!

Siamo stati molto bene e spero proprio di poterci tornare la prossima estate.

La consiglierò a parenti e amici, ovviamente.

Una vacanza da ricordare

  • 5 of 5

Siamo un gruppo di sette persone, tutti parenti di età diverse, dai pensionati ai ragazzini.

Abbiamo deciso di passare una vacanza insieme a Torre dell’Orso nel mese di giugno e dopo una lunga e scrupolosa ricerca tra le varie offerte su HomeAway, la nostra scelta è ricaduta su Villa Xanadù. Essendo sette persone, occorreva appunto una struttura comoda e capiente.

Mio cognato a contattato Elisa, la proprietaria e fin da subito si è istallato un rapporto di reciproca fiducia e simpatia, il che ci ha fatto ben sperare per il buon esito della vacanza.

Elisa gentilissima, ci ha organizzato addirittura il trasferimento dall’aeroporto di Brindisi fino alla villa.

Certo che arrivare a villa Xanadù, con un comodissimo Van Mercedes, perfettamente climatizzato, in una splendida giornata di sole, trovare Elisa che ci accoglie nel salone che ha una strepitosa vista sul mare non è cosa da poco.

La villa è ben tenuta, pulita e ordinata e completa di asciugamani e lenzuola per tutte le persone che prenotano il soggiorno, come dicevo prima, noi eravamo in sette e la biancheria era sufficiente per tutti. L’arredamento è elegantemente essenziale, senza fronzoli inutili.

Le foto che si vedono su HomeAway corrispondono alla realtà ma vivere la casa è ancora meglio di come si vede. La villa ha una posizione panoramica e tranquilla, non per niente la via in cui si trova si chiama “Bellavista”.

Punti di forza, oltre alla posizione panoramica sono le 4 sdraio imbottite in veranda e la possibilità di cenare fuori fino a otto persone, potendo scegliere quale lato della casa è il più riparato dalla brezza marina e se anche dovesse capitare, come a noi, un giorno di vento, basta spostare il tavolo sul lato riparato e il problema è risolto. Certo che cenare la sera sul lato che guarda il mare è senz’altro fantastico.

Un ringraziamento ad Elisa, la proprietaria, per averci fatto vivere una vacanza da ricordare.

Vittorio, Franco & C.

A cozy place for a wonderful break

  • 5 of 5

Villa Xanadù is located on a magical cliff by which you have access to a powerful sight on the sea.

We were 5 people and the house was perfecty equipped for our staying: the rooms are wide and bright, the kitchen has all want you need as at your own home and from the sitting room you can enjoy a wonderful panorama. Outside, there's a BBQ and an external shower that is really comfortable.

I would reccomend Villa Xanadu since it is quiet, cozy, close to all main services in the city and Anna and Elisa are really great hosts.

Comfort e relax nel cuore del Salento

  • 5 of 5

Insieme ad una coppia di amici abbiamo voluto anticipare le nostre ferie a maggio e ci siamo concessi una settimana di vacanza a Villa Xanadù: la casa offre tutto il necessario per un soggiorno confortevole ed in pieno relax. Abbiamo sfruttato il BBQ per cene a base di pesce freschissimo e buon vino. Le proprietarie, disponibili e cortesi durante tutta la nostra permanenza, sono state prodighe di informazioni utili e, sfruttando le bici a disposizione degli ospiti, abbiamo organizzato escursioni nelle zone limitrofe di Torre Sant’Andrea e Laghi Alimini. Torre dell’Orso è una vera perla e torneremo certamente a trovare Elisa ed Anna. Grazie di tutto! Daniele

The country, very nice and well maintained, offers a variety of services, all just a few steps away from the villa: numerous beaches, restaurants, bars, pubs and disco pub. Also within walking distance: tennis courts, children's playground, shops, clothing stores and souvenir shops and lots of traditional food.

Nearby: Bear Tower is located at the center of Salento, halfway between the beautiful cities of Lecce, Otranto and Gallipoli. A few kilometers: riding, golf, cycling, sailing, windsurfing and kite surfing.
