Lecce Salento Castro charming house with private garden

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

In Salento respect for the simple country meets contemporary rigor within the walls of an old carriage house tastefully renovated.

The guideline of this small home is the contamination of local tradition with colors and furnishings of metropolitan taste. In fact larger than the use of materials with the use of local stone and in the workforce, where we made use of the experience of local artisans.

So here in the bedroom, served by a bathroom with whirlpool tub, the mattress was laid on top of a masonry structure that serves as a bed and also incorporates two bedside tables. An old door reveals and access to the veranda covered with terracotta tiles, ideal place to think and dream lulled by the breeze scented with lavender and rosemary.

The living room is the second master bedroom with the sofa bed and the furniture deliberately essential. Some items sometimes alluding to the local culture are mixed with pieces of contemporary design, giving it a taste of artifact ever lived.

The kitchen and second bathroom a perfect blend of the interior with the exterior and bright thanks to large windows that lead to the view between aromatic and medicinal herbs, surrounded by the lush greenery of citrus. The kitchen also opens onto an outdoor dining area defined by prickly pear and old stone walls which together with the large fig tree supporting the tent sheltering from the hot sun.

Finally, it is exploited in a sustainable rainwater flowing in an old tank cut in stone, through a system of ducts need artificial irrigation of the vegetation.

The environment inside and outside the home is therefore intense and at the same time with minimal additions of the past that combines the best of modern technology, thus proving to be the best retreat for relaxation and freedom.

relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 nights at Dimora Cavalieri and I wish it could have been longer. Booking and getting a spacious and very elegant apartment with a pleasant garden is what I call a great deal! This is a beautiful, cosy, colourful hideaway, just out of the city centre - a real joy to stay and feel you at home.

Charming room as well as the bathroom, very nice kitchen too, with all the amenities you could need – tea and coffee capsules to enjoy at any time. A special mention for the delicious food and homemade speciality offered by the owners, delightful people: organic extra virgin oil as well as marmalade, stone baked rustic bread, wine and least but not last the lovely pasticciotti cakes offered as a welcome in the house.

The owners are very kind and helpful and made every effort to make us feel at home. All in all, a jewel of a place to stay in the beautiful Salento. We would love to come back soon and enjoy the unfinished beauties of Lecce and surroundings, also the lovely company of Monica and Sergio.

Many thanks indeed for the lovely time we spent together.

Freundliche Unterkunft abseits der Touristenziele

  • 4 of 5

Gute Lage am Ortsrand, sehr freundliche und aufmerksame Besitzer, gute Betten, großzügige Bäder. Einzige Einschränkung: die etwas zu schmale Küche . . .

Wir empfehlen diese Unterkunft gerne weiter.

Una bellissima residenza

Tranquillità, comodità, ottima accoglienza da parte dei proprietari e una corte interna con un magnifico albero di fico dal quale è stato difficile separarsi.

Grazie a Monica, a Sergio e a Ginevra per il bel soggiorno nel Salento!

Andrano is one of the smallest and oldest towns of Salento, with its hidden cave churches, the mysterious Byzantine crypts, numerous watch towers created to prevent the incursions of the Saracens-turkish. Characteristic of the cycling routes between carob trees and old olive groves that unfold in the wilderness like many "sheep tracks" along the roads from the age-old origins of the land stretching towards the sea with its rocky coves scented myrtle. Everywhere in this village there are traces of history, told and is jealously guarded in his castle Spinola-Caracciolo, the seat of the regional natural park "St. Mary of Otranto-Leuca-Tricase Forest ", is one of the tiny houses and traditional courtyard houses, where the local stone stands in all its glory and where housewives perpetuate a tradition of orecchiette and poor sublimated products in delicious recipes semplicità.In few minutes you can reach the beautiful cliffs of Castro, or those of S. Cesarea Terme renowned spa since 1899 with numerous sulfur springs. For those who love diving do not miss the Ciolo, an inlet spectacular four kilometers from Leuca, without forgetting Porto Badisco surrounded by prickly pear and patches of myrtle, known as the first landing of Aeneas from Troy and the Deer Cave, one of the most important prehistoric sites in Europe. Driving along the scenic coastal road to say the least, we come then to Otranto with its castle on the sea and the great mosaic of the cathedral that tells all the imagery of the era. Particularly striking the neighboring villages of Andrano, more and more praised as Tricase, Mirror, Preston, Giurdignano with its garden of Italy rich in megalithic 7 Dolmen and Menhir 18 and others encountered moving from the Adriatic to the Ionian Sea, between the ruins messapici of Large and stairways of the Roman amphitheater in Lecce, between the medieval castles and baroque cathedrals, because as he said Piovene in his "Italian Journey" the "Salento is a land of mirages, windy; it's great, you plan sweetness. It remains in my memory more like an imaginary journey that as a real journey. "
