Cà Mì is your ideal holiday home if you want to experience the Salento territory by living the true rythm of a small town of Southern Italy while enjoying your stay in a truly special place, where the original stones and finishings meet a more contemporary interior design. The owners found in Salento the ideal Mediterranean location for their holiday house. After a door-to-door hunt in the historic centre of Galatone they opened the door of this unique house of 60 sqm with 80 sqm of terraces on three levels, and made it their own in 2008. With 9 months of patient remodeling with local contractors and craftsmen, this house now features exquisite antique and handmade furniture and finishings. The well, the niches, the fireplace, the amazing stone vaulted ceiling of the living area were brought back to life in a more contemporary interior design. The huge master bedroom was rearranged to sleep comfortably 4 people with a newly designed mezzanine, and to create a large bathroom with double sinks and a floor-to-ceiling tiled shower room. The house has fully equipped kitchen, air conditioning/heating, TV with DVD, a large canopy with 2 sun beds on the upper terrace plus a fabulous open-air shower to end up your summer day in the best possible way. Sip your “aperitivo” in the front terrace. Take a walk and awe at the beautiful architecture of the historical neighborhood. Take the car to explore olive groves, ruins, beautifully preserved villages, beaches and to discover the simply great food this land has to offer. Make your own Best of Salento!

About Sandra Casadei
We are from Faenza, a lovely town in the heart of the Romagna region of Italy. We love to travel by taking time, exploring and getting lost, and that's pretty much how we found this house. Life has brought us to a city very far away, so now we share our vacation home with all the fellow travelers that prefer experiencing over visiting.
Sandra Casadei purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Sandra Casadei chose Galatone
Some years ago we grew friends with a lot of people originally from the Lecce province. Their flamboyant enthusiasm for their roots and their stubbornness in declaring that Salento was the most beautiful place in the world was almost annoying, so we decided to travel there to prove them wrong. From that time, we never went anywhere else to spend our summers. We discovered Galatone thanks to one of those friends, and we decided that this very southern and friendly town was the perfect place where to finally find our future "buen retiro". Not only it is ideally located near all the main local attractions while far enough from the madding tourist crowds, Galatone is also an architectural gem with great, simple restaurants where to enjoy the true local recipes.
What makes this Apartment unique
While walking to Santino's Trattoria (unfortunately now closed) for a drink with our friends, we noticed the clearly abandoned property just next door and what seemed to be the nicest little terrace overlooking the narrow street. Thanks to Santino, the word of mouth started and the following day we were able to visit the house. Its unusual and unique configuration and the incredible amount of terrace space instantly captured our imagination and our hearts. A few months later, we were starting its restoration and counting the minutes separating us from our first toast on the terrace.

Abbiamo alloggiato in questa ottima casa - climatizzata - gia' la seconda volta e davvero il ns soggiorno e' stato piacevole e rilassante. La casa e' situata nel centro storico di Galatone, curata e ben attrezzata.
Ci godiamo questo posto situato tra mare e cultura, in piu' l'ottima cucina salentina.
Grazie a Sandra e Valerio, i proprietari della casa, ed Ilaria e Luigi sempre molto disponibili ed accoglienti sul posto.
Insomma, tutto perfetto e speriamo di tornare in Salento! Constantin e Heike
Grazie di averci scelto ancora una volta, caro Constantin. Ci fa davvero piacere che il Salento sia entrato nel vostro cuore, fatelo conoscere!
We had a great time in this stunning holiday home. It was cosy but quiet and had everything we needed. My husband loved lying in the sun on the roof top terrace, reading a book all afternoon. Galatone is a beautiful little town with delicious local cuisine, especially the Trattoria da Santino which is one door away and makes the most fantastic home cooked meals you could ever imagine. We loved our stay here and will be back soon :)
Dear Nadja, we are really glad you had a lovely time in Galatone. Too bad it was such a short stay... Thanks for your kind words and hope to see you soon!
" FANTASTICA CA' MI' "
Abbiamo soggiornato in questa casa la seconda settimana di agosto e devo dire che è stata una vacanza meravigliosa. Tutto è curato nei minimi dettagli, superaccessoriata e arredata con molto gusto. Anche i terrazzi sono carinissimi e la doccia all'aperto è una vera chicca. La posizione è strategica. ..a Galatone non manca nulla..è vicinissima alle spiagge più belle del Salento e dista 20' da Lecce e 10' da Gallipoli. Un grazie speciale va ai proprietari, gentilissimi e disponibili per qualsiasi informazione e a Ilaria e Luigi per la loro pazienza. Contentissimi!!! Serena e Mirko
Beautiful and cozy house in the historical center of Galatone, tasteful and fully furnished. Galatone ia a little gem away from the august’s mad crowd, but only 10 minutes away from Gallipoli and the main attractions. It was a beautiful vacation, we will be back.
Thank you so much for your lovely comments, hope to have you back!
Pretty little house
Nicely furnished little townhouse in an unspoiled town not far from Gallipoli.
Double bedroom and mezzanine with 2 singles but most comfortable for a couple.
Helpful owners and Ilaria on hand as a local contact, we enjoyed Puglia
Glad you enjoyed your time in Salento, thank you for staying with us!

Cà Mì is in the historical centre (Centro Storico) of Galatone, a town conveniently located along the main highway that from Lecce brings to Gallipoli and S. Maria di Leuca. Galatone is one of the few towns of Salento showcasing masterpieces by Giuseppe Zimbalo, the artist behind the most renown sites in Lecce: beautiful churches, palazzi, portals and ruins are all at walking distance from Cà Mì. Galatone is an ideal starting point to explore the beauties of Salento: the Ionio coastline has such gems as Gallipoli, Santa Caterina, Porto Cesareo and Porto Selvaggio. The sightseeing drive all the way down to S. Maria Di Leuca and Otranto is a must. Lecce (renamed the Florence of Southern Italy), Galatina and Nardò, all featuring gorgeous examples of Barocco Leccese, are just a few minutes away. Or you might just want to drive around and get lost in the fantastic rural landscape to discover - and taste! - your own 'Best of Salento'.
