About Davide Barletti
I’m a film director. I know very well this region and its traditions.
Why Davide Barletti chose Arnesano
This manor house is a typical Salento building where our family has been living for generations. During the cold season our family lives here, so the house is equipped with all comforts and technologies to enjoy a relaxing stay. The house is 2 km away from a small but welcoming village, Arnesano, just few minutes from the centre of Lecce. The manor farm is at walking distance from all the main sites of Salento, and this is a quiet location especially in summer. It is situated in the centre of the Salento peninsula, so you can get to the sea (both the Ionian and the Adriatic seas) in not more than 15-20 min.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
This house is made of stone and was built using traditional methods. It is cold in summer and surrounded by over 200 trees and a garden of over 13000 sq m. It is immersed in the silence of the countryside. This house features a magnificent stone oven of 18th century and a round room cut out of the rock, where once they made bread. If you are searching for an house overlooking the sea, this is not good for you. This house is beautiful because it is surrounded by nature and immersed in the quiet countryside, at walking distance from Lecce town, far from mass tourism! Both the Ionian and the Adriatic seas are 18 km away and you can reach them in 20 min along roads with little traffic.
