A spectacular property...
We were looking for a relaxing spot to get away from it all for a week. Il Bosco does not disappoint. Osvaldo and Daniela have created a beautiful property which has been sympathetically restored and decorated extremely thoughtfully. Everything you could need to prepare meals is there and with the wood fired barbecue you really never have to leave!
The location is so peaceful and quiet with beautiful grounds and a unique pool for cooling off after a hard day on the sunbeds.
this is a great base rom which to explore both the Ionian and Adriatic coasts with Santa Maria di Leuca only a ten minute drive away (and would recommend a boat trip to see the caves with Leuca Explorer). The local beach at Felloniche is a five minute drive and is very nice.
I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this property for anyone looking for a retreat and our only regret is that we could only stay for one week as we would have been happy to stay for much longer.
Communication with Osvaldo and Daniela was excellent and the list of recommended restaurants, markets etc was very welcome. Thank you both so much.
Wonderful place! Relaxing starts immediately when you get there!
Wonderful! Awesome and so relaxing place! Awesome owner!
Paradise in an olive grove! .
The house is beautifully furnished and very clean. The pool in a cave is very unusual and was far more refreshing than an outdoor pool. The perfect place to unwind, would definitely come back.
Lovely friendly people
Lots of space, plenty of shady areas, great views. Leuca is lovely, go on a boat trip to the caves and swim into the gold and azure cave.Galipoli a must for a good wander. Lots of great beaches and places to eat out. Not enough days to sample all of the ice cream. Fantastic. Osvaldo is very helpfull with lots of information on hand if you need it.
What a place! Beautifully designed, everything you need for a comfortable stay! The kids had so much freedom to explore in a safe place! Easy drive to stunning beaches, Can't wait to go back!
A perfect holiday!
We spent a fantastic week with our two little daughters in this amazing, truly beautiful house. We enjoyed the huge garden with its olive trees, watched the sunset on the rooftop and enjoyed the warm summernights with a lovely dinner on the beautifully decorated perch. The interiors of the house are perfectly chosen and it matches the styles of the house and its surroundings. We we're lucky to have met Osvaldo the owner. He was always very helpful and friendly and brought us delicious olive oil from the trees in the garden. We would definitely recommend this property to everyone and we will probably book it for another time in the near future.
COMFORT and PRIVACY TWO STEPS FROM THE SEA.
The area of Capo di Leuca where the house is located enjoys good weather most of the year. And each month has its own charm and many reasons to be visited.
Time runs by taking a bath from April to November, from the beach, from the rocks or from the boat ... browsing through Markets, Cultural Events, Country Festivals and Singing and Dance Shows under the stars.
In November the Harvest, the Spremitura delle Olives and the harvest of the Myrtle Berries; in December the typical and traditional atmosphere of the Christmas festivities; in January the clear winter days are the prelude to the flowering of Mimose, Mandorli, Peri and Albicocchi, the collection of Wild Herbs, Asparagus and Wild Fennel, the explosion of colors for spring blooms that invite to walks and bike rides. And throughout the year, great food and excellent wines.
And even the occasional rains, lived in our countryside, are full of charm!
