A haven of peace & tranquility

  • 5 of 5

A lovely house in the countryside close to the Lecce - Gallipoli motorway making exploring easy. The house, whilst, simple is deal for those seeking peace, quiet & solitude. Our kids loved playing outside with no traffic/cars around. Luca, the owner, goes above & beyond to help. Highly recommended for people who prize enjoying life over the mod-cons of urban life.

Vacances paisibles

  • 4 of 5

C'est d'abord le parfum du grand pin réchauffé par le soleil, puis ce formidable vent léger malgré le gros soleil d'août, enfin la vue sur les oliviers tout autour et sur la terre rouge du Salento. On se sent merveilleusement bien ! Depuis la terrasse ombragée on rêve qu'on est chez nous, et que les vacances dureront toute la vie. Merci à Luca, notre sympathique propriétaire, attentionné et chaleureux, qui a eu à coeur de résoudre très vite les moindres petits problèmes qu'on a pu rencontrer. Les chambres sont grandes, les nuits sont calmes, on dort très bien! A 10 minutes des belles plages de sables et de Gallipoli. Emplacement idéal pour visiter le Salento !

Salento 2015

  • 4 of 5

Ciao a tutti,

ho avuto il piacere di soggiornare presso la "Terra degli Ulivi" dal 9 al 23 Agosto 2015.

Che dire? La casa è situata in aperta campagna, in un'ottima posizione per raggiungere le spiagge più belle del Salento, ed è circondata da un ampio giardino che rispecchia la vegetazione tipica salentina. Secondo me un luogo ideale per le famiglie o comunque per chi viaggia in gruppo, in quanto, avendo molto spazio a disposizione e quasi nessuno attorno, ci si può rilassare e godersi delle meravigliose serate all'aria aperta.

Luca, il proprietario, è una persona gentilissima e sempre disponibile nel caso in cui si dovessero verificare dei problemi.

Io personalmente ho passato delle splendide vacanze, e consiglierei, a chi ne avesse l'opportunità, di trascorrere le proprie vacanze in questa struttura che offre tranquillità e relax, il giusto mix per staccare dalla vita frenetica di ogni giorno.
