What makes this House unique
The view of THE ENCHANTMENT is unique! Being on the old sourrounding walls of the Village, although you'll be in the hearth of the historic center, you will enjoy a fantastic sight. Waking up, you can see the sun rise beyond the horizon, the olive trees and the stone figures that adorn the ancient roofs. Under the reeds that shade the terrace, you can enjoy this amazing show, but you can also read a good book or chat with each other, with a good aperitif in your hands. The view is not only a feature of the terrace, it can also be enjoyed from the living area, as well as from the sleeping one. Mine was a love at first sight! I followed the restoration of this house carefully, taking care to respect the traditional architectural choices, without however renouncing to functionality and comfort. In a few steps you are in the main square of the village, to enjoy the many cultural events, or the famous pastry Martinucci ('pasticciotti', ice cream not to be missed!), or the delicious cuisine at 'La Bettola'. Under the house you can park your car, with which you can reach the beautiful beaches of fine sand, or those between the high rocks that rise from the water, where the sea is crystal clear and shades from turquoise to emerald green.

Beautiful Salento house in a great location
A beautifully restored traditional Salento house with a modern twist in the glorious small town of Specchia. The property is exactly as seen in the photographs, light, cool, airy and immaculately maintained by the owner Maddalena who met us on our arrival to show us the property as well as some of the delights of Specchia. Views from the terrace are second to none, a great place to enjoy a sundowner whilst watching the aerial mastery of swifts. Internally the space is cleverly designed to provide a comfortable yet dramatic setting with all of the fittings and facilities what you'd expect to find in the very best boutique hotels.
Our stay of one week in Maddalena's house was memorable and relaxing as well as providing a great base to explore the area including both of the very different coastlines of Southern Puglia which are within easy reach by car.
Inland villages, including the very special Specchia, were a constant surprise with nearly all having historical centres with squares containing beautiful churches and traditional houses, coming alive as temperatures drop into the night.
Specchia has a number of restaurants and shops to suit a variety of tastes including the fantastic Martinucci for excellent gelato and Trattoria da Coppuledda with it's panoramic terrace overlooking the rural landscape below the town.
We highly recommend our host Maddalena's beautiful house as a place that you should stay if in the region or if you are not, then make a special trip to experience it's delights and of course the stupendous Specchia.
Casa molto confortevole e fedele alle foto.
Cosa aggiungere a quanto scritto nel titolo?
Che la casa si trova in un bel Borgo Antico ed in posizione "strategica", per raggiungere i più bei luoghi della costa Adriatica ed Ionica nel Sud-Salento.
Le persone sono cordiali ed i servizi quasi sempre soddisfacenti, motivo per cui ho dato 4/5 stelle alla mia votazione, nella speranza che questi luoghi possano continuare ad essere preservati e migliorati.
Infine, ringrazio la Sig.ra Maddalena per la sua cordialità e professionalità, dal primo contatto Mail all'ultimo saluto.
La ringrazio molto sia per il giudizio condivisibile, che per la puntualità e correttezza mostrate in ogni momento. Siete sempre benvenuti nelle mie proprietà! Maddalena
