Beautiful place with lovely views.

  • 5 of 5

We spent five days here at the end of May which was the perfect time to visit. The apartment was clean and well maintained and as we were the only occupants in the block we had the large shared terrace and the sun terraces down near the sea to ourselves. Alessandro although unable to be present himself maintained good contact with us via email and phone, his parents and their interpreter were friendly and helpful throughout . The town itself is very pretty and has some lovely bars and restaurants also a supermarket within 10 minutes which is a bonus for self catering guests. Nearby Castro a little fishing village is also worth a visit and the fresh fish we bought there was delicious.

When we were able to drag ourselves away from our apartment we visited a number of local towns and cities. Lecce and Ostuni are both beautiful and entirely different from each other. Also Otranto with its stunning and unusual cathedral. The unesco heritage site of Alberobello is an hour and a half away and well worth a visit, pop into the gelato shop on the outskirts of the main tourist area, lives up to its BBC reputation as the best in Puglia.

Thank you Alessandro for your suggestions and your hospitality, we look forward to visiting again one day.

Beste Lage und wunderschöne Aussichten

  • 5 of 5

Die Lage direkt am Meer, mit einem eigenen privaten Badestrand sind die absoluten Highlights dieser Unterkunft. Natürlich war auch die Unterkunft und das gesamte Gebäude nahezu perfekt. Auch die Organisation und die Kommunikation mit dem Vermieter war unkompliziert und sehr freundlich.

Magnifique vue sur la mer, accès privé à une mer cristalline, hôtes sympathiques

  • 5 of 5

Les photos sont conformes à la réalité, seule la terrasse est en fait à partager avec bcp de voisins - mais vraiment sympathiques. Accès privé à la mer est important car bcp d'autres accès sont payants. La mer magnifique avec des accès par la mer à des grottes tout aussi somptueuses. Résidence calme avec tout ce qu'il faut. Pas d'accès à internet car difficile d'accès pr les fournisseurs d'accès? (Mais la 4G passe). Nos hôtes, les Quarta ont été très accueillants et nous ont fait découvrir les merveilles culinaires et maritimes de la région. Il faut un peu comprendre et parler italien cependant, car sinon la communication est impossible.

Santa Cesarea di terme est parfaite pr visiter Salento (Lecce, Otranto...) mais pr les Pouilles (Ostuni, Alberobello, Bari, Brindisi, ...) c'est un peu loin, 2h de voitures juste pr l'aller.

Mais la tranquillité du lieu, la beauté de la mer, la gentillesse de nos hôtes, vaut vraiment ce petit inconvénient. Nous avons passé un séjour de rêve, trop court.

Grazie Mile à nos hôtes.

Très belle location parfaitement située

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cet appartement. Alessandro s'occupe de la location pour ses parents qui demeurent dans l'appartement voisin. L'appartement correspond parfaitement aux photos, la terrasse et la situation sont vraiment magnifiques! Les parents d'Alessandro nous ont fait découvrir les grottes situées dans les environs et qui sont accessibles à la nage, la mer et la côte sont superbes!

Une location très bien équipée et très confortable, la chambre principale a vue sur la mer, et l'accès à la baignade se fait par des marches taillées dans la falaise, ce qui permet d'aller se baigner à toutes heures.

Un grand merci aux parents d'Alessandro pour leur accueil et leur sympathie,

un seul regret: devoir partir!

ampio appartamento, molto confertevole e molto pulito

grandiosa vista sul mare (è direttamente sulla scogliera)

molto tranquillo (solo una notte siamo stati "disturbati" - si fa per dire - dalle lampare al lavoro al largo)

completo di tutto, ottimamente arredato, cucina attrezzatissima

terrazzo enorme


un po' buia la 2^ camera da letto (ma tanto ci si va solo per dormire...)

manca parcheggio privato, ma a fianco del palazzo vi è un ampio parcheggio pubblico (a luglio mai pieno)

Car: recommended

A few miles south of Otranto, on top of a green rugged plateau overlooking the emerald sea, stands Santa Cesarea Terme, characterized by the typical architecture of the early twentieth century with numerous villas and summer residences monumental and luxurious at the same time frivolous and extravagant. They were built in the early twentieth century by the bourgeoisie from Salento, in search of pleasant resort, immediately appreciated the well-being provoked by thermal treatments. Among these, the beautiful villa Sticchi built in the late 1800s.

Do not miss the walk along the path between the pines of Aleppo that leads to the top of the village where you can enjoy a magnificent view on the Salento coast to the tip of Santa Maria di Leuca.

The coasts on which stands the village have the phenomenon of thermal springs with sulphurous water, which flows out at temperatures ranging between 27 and 30 degrees in four natural caves along the cliff, thermal springs particularly suitable for the treatment of arthritis, rheumatism, skin diseases and respiratory tract, as well as beauty treatments and anti-stress.

In addition to relaxation and well-being, the town offers numerous activities, opportunities for recreation and entertainment, as well as long walks in one of the most fascinating places of Salento. Within 2 km from the village there are three very famous nightclubs (Malè, Guendalina and Blue Bay), as well as numerous local and lounge bar by the sea.

Santa Cesarea Terme is also a good base for exploration of the many small towns in the lower Salento, characterized by picturesque old towns and evidence of Neolithic culture, classical and early Christian, but also of the large towns such as Lecce (40 min drive) , Maglie (20 min) and Otranto (15 min).

From a meteorological perspective Santa Cesarea Terme is part of the territory of Salento, which has a Mediterranean climate, with mild winters and hot humid summers. Based on the average reference, the average temperature of the coldest month, January is around to +9 ° C, while that of the warmest month, August, is about +35.1 ° C. The average annual rainfall, which are around 676 mm, have a minimum in spring and summer and a peak in autumn-winter. These climatic characteristics allow a pleasant stay at any time of year.
