About the property

The villa is 50 m from the sea, featuring a wonderful sandy shore and crystal-clear waters. It overlooks the main square of Torre Chianca with a market every Sunday, as well as shows and typical events in summer. It has a large garden with comfortable outdoor spaces to enjoy a meal and relax. All the materials are typical from the place and offer an evocative view of this small peninsula. The outdoor area features seats of local stone and wood, an appealing shaded veranda, a barbecue, and two showers. It is possible to park two cars in the outdoor area. Inside, there is an ample living room, an eat-in kitchen with a dining area, a double bedroom with bathroom, one master bedroom with a bathroom, washbasin and bidet, and a large bathroom with two showers. On its 140-m², the villa can accommodate six people (two in the living room). By a convenient staircase, you can go from the living room to the sunny terrace, which offers a nice sea view. It is ideal for children. The prices are all included. Booking deposit: 30% of the total amount. Check-in at 05:00 p.m. – Check-out at 12:00 p.m. Place to visit: the sunflower field around the tower. Thanks to UNESCO, at Torre Chianca, there is a field planted with sunflowers, which bloom in August. Another place to visit is the Idume River that flows into the Adriatic Sea. The basins are part of the spectacular Rauccio Park. A little further, in the direction of Casalabate, you can visit a historic monument.

About Agostino Guarascio

I am a painter, sculptor, and an architect. I graduated in Florence, but I have never forgotten the Salento Sea, so I came back to Puglia. I have personally refurbished this house, including the furniture and decoration elements.

Why Agostino Guarascio chose Torre Chianca

This is a house full of positive energy, built with imagination, respect for nature, and creativity. The owners are artists; therefore, beside the smell of the sea, you can breathe art in every corner. It has an enviable location and has been furnished with natural materials, some of which were found on Torre Chianca beach. It is ideal for those who love peace, silence, nature, and privacy.

What makes this villa unique

The sea is so close that you can breathe its smell at any moment. You will enjoy a panoramic view of the sea, absolute privacy, and a tastefully furnished house.

It is an artistic residence in all respects. Besides the stone, wood, glass, and other materials, there is an excessive use of recycled natural elements, reinvented, and given a new life. It breathes the scents of Salento, a few steps away from the sea that you hear from the house.

La casa è splendida ed originale. Così vicino al mare. Il proprietario e una persona discreta e gentile ed è l'artista che ha creato questa bellissima casa. Il mio voto è 10 su 10. Grazie ad Antonino, torneremo!

Absolut traumhaft und empfehlenswert

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren vom 27.05-07.06.2018 bei Agostino und es war traumhaft.

Die Beschreibung des Hauses ist weit untertrieben.In Echt ist das Haus noch toller

und größer. Da wir immer Selbstversorger sind habe ich meistens die wichtigsten Sachen dabei ,da man doch immer was braucht was es dann in der gebuchten Unterkunft nicht gibt.Hier ist jedoch wirklich alles vorhanden was man braucht und in Top-Zustand.

Die Küche ist rießig und man hat genug Platz alles zuzubereiten.Auch der Kühlsch-

schrank ist sehr groß und ein extra Gefrierschrank steht nebenan.

Die Schlafzimmer sind ebenfalls sehr geräumig und da wir nur zu zweit mit einem Hund dort waren reichte uns sowieso eines vollkommen.Ebenso die 2 Bäder ,jede

mit Dusche sind sehr sauber und alles vorhanden was man braucht.Das wohnzimmer

ist ebenfalls sehr schön das Agostino mit seinem handwerklichen Geschick geschmackvoll eingerichtet hat.Außserdem gibt es noch eine rießige Dachterasse

wo man einen wunderschönen Blick auf das Meer hat.

Das ganze Haus ist einfach super und durch Agostinos Liebe zum Detail auf jeden Fall

einen Urlaub wert und wir werden dieses Jahr wahrscheinlich nochmal kommen.

Ich wünsche Agostino weiterhin Alles Gute und wir sehen uns bald wieder.

P.S. einen lieben Gruß von unserem Hund Thunder.Das nächste mal erkennt er Dich wieder.

Bis Bald

Dieter,Anne und Thunder der Hund

Owner's Response: Grazie mille per la vostra recensione. E grazie soprattutto per la vostra bella energia, per aver apprezzato non solo la mia casa ma anche le mie opere, per aver condiviso tanti bellissimi momenti insieme, per i preziosi consigli di Marco, per la pulizia di Monica e per la vostra simpatia e allegria. E' stato bello conoscervi, un po meno salutarvi così presto. Ma tanto ci vediAmo a Roma. Un abbraccio a tutti e 4. A prestissimo.

L'incroyable décoration n'a d'égal que la gentillesse et la générosité des propriétaires

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé une très agréable semaine, les propriétaires s'assurant de notre bien être, le jardin bien entretenu, le citronnier couvert de fruits, les douches supplémentaires dans le jardin (très agréable le matin et au retour de plage), la maison bien équipée et les repas sous la tonnelle. Merci à Antonio, son épouse et leur fils Agostino pour leur accueil si chaleureux et amical.

Perfekt! Fantastisch! Herzlich!

  • 5 of 5

Agostino ist der perfekte Vermieter. Wir kamen viel später an als vereinbart, er wartete mit Wasser, Wein und regionalem Gebäck auf uns. Das Haus ist hervorragend ausgestattet, sehr liebevoll eingerichtet und spiegelt Agostinos Liebe zur Kunst wider Der wunderschöne Strand in Torre Chianca ist in Sichtweite von der großen Dachterrasse. Auch Agostinos charmante Familie durften wir bei einem Abendessen kennenlernen. Wir bekamen viele Tipps, was wir uns unbedingt anschauen müssen. Auch Reiseführer sind im Haus vorhanden. Alles in allem war es der perfekte Urlaub, in dem wir ganz besondere Menschen kennenlernen durften. Gerne jederzeit wieder ♡♡♡

Torre Chianca
Car: necessary

Along the Adriatic Sea coast, from Brindisi to Lecce, lies the Torre Chianca marina. This marina in Lecce takes its name from the tower, which was one of the most imposing lines of defence of Charles V. Torre. Chianca is ideal for a quiet holiday with long beaches and low cliffs alternating with the beautiful Salento Sea and a temperate climate. A good road network connects it to the main tourist destinations such as Otranto, Gallipoli Santa Maria di Leuca, among others. From Torre Chianca, you can reach the capital of Baroque, located 9 km away. In Lecce, you can visit the most important Baroque buildings in the city, such as Piazza del Duomo, the church of Santa Croce, the Roman amphitheatre in Piazza Sant'Oronzo, and much more. Armida Villa is located just 9 km from the Baroque city (Lecce), 10 km from the Lepore Airport, 20 km from the fortified city of Acaya (Headquarters of the Mediterranean Peace Forum and UNESCO world heritage), and 11 km from the only 18-hole golf course and spa in Salento. The building is close to the beaches and the protected natural park of Oasi Delle Cesine WWF. The old watchtower, whose construction started in 1569, is one of the most imposing structures on the Salento coast with an 18 metre height and 15.60-metre length. During World War II, it was used as an artillery location. The Idume and Fetida rivers are also interesting where algae and sago pondweed grow. Here, the underground Idume River flows into the sea. Along the banks, there are thick reeds, salty Salicornia steppe, and plants such as narcissus.
