About the property

the fifteenth century farmhouse just a few km from Lecce and the beaches of Salento

A few km from Lecce tries a rare and pleasant sense of detachment from reality: surrounded by the Salento countryside, but a few steps from the sea, is Falcon Home Resort, lovingly restored farmhouse dating back to the sixteenth century.

Once farm land with a rich extension of ownership, now is an elegant resort. Will be welcomed by the owner, architect Lecce with passion and dedication has restructured and taken care of every detail to make you spend a holiday of comfort and relaxation in an environment that will immediately feel familiar.

The structure was born with a green vocation, as it was designed entirely with low-emission glass, to isolate it from heat, wind energy panels and blades.

The four masonry rooms are designed to create a real harmony between the interior and exterior of the structure.

You can choose to sleep in the suite, surrounded by the warm yellow that recalls the Earth, or in double bedrooms Wood, Fire and Metal, each of which will transmit its own peculiar energy.

A very special Colonial with four comfortable rooms, a swimming pool integrated perfectly into the rural setting and large common areas for the exclusive use of guests, both internal and external, to enjoy breakfast, strictly local produce, or even just a glass of wine and the reading of a good book.

The context of Salento, the refined furniture and refined details, such as the paintings made specifically by local artists housed in the structure, will make you live a stay surrounded by a special magic, which will return peace and prosperity to the already too busy life everyday.

Wow!! Unbelievable experience!!! We loved this house!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely AMAZING!! The hospitality we received from the moment we arrived till the moment we left was first class. I learned the phrase "casa tua" meaning "your house" and that's exactly how Vincenzo, Carina and Emmanuel made us feel during our stay. Because of the central location, we were able to visit so many beaches and towns on both coasts and saw so much of what puglia had to offer. There was more than enough sleeping room for my family (2 adults, 4 kids) and friends (2 adults , 1 kid) and 1 of the 4 bedrooms was not even used. Breakfast Made fresh every morning by Emmanuel was a great surprise and the spread was outstanding. I can't say enough good things about this trip. Gratzie, Gratzie, Gratzie a te Vincenzo!

Lovely spot in Puglia to unwind

  • 4 of 5

Lovely masseria (farm home) about 10 minutes from the center of Lecce. Pluses are that it is quiet and a bit off the beaten track, but also an easy drive to many of the Puglia sites. The main bedroom is very spacious and the other 2 bedrooms are adequate. Negatives are no washing machine, kitchen is a bit small , and pool is unheated (so that swimming in early June can be a challenge). Furnishings are adequate but not high end. The owner Vincenzo makes a great effort to be accommodating and the folks who manage the property for him are very available to answer all questions and help out. . He arranged a chef one night for us who was fantastic.

un endroit charmant

  • 5 of 5

Immense propriété, chaque couple peut avoir son intimité. S'il y a un problème, le service est rapide. Julia est très efficace. Les personnes responsables sont très accueillantes et charmantes. Nous recommandons cette location sans hésitation. Nous avons passé un séjour merveilleux en famille, il n'y a rien à redire, tout est positif. Bravo.

très joli gîte

  • 4 of 5

Le gîte est splendide, immense et très calme. Les chambres sont très spacieuses et décorées avec beaucoup de goût. La pièce à vivre est très conviviale et chaleureuse grâce à la chaîne hifi et au large choix de CDs. Vincenzo est un hôte accueillant et très serviable. Un tout petit bémol cependant mais lié au fait que le gîte est ouvert depuis peu , l'équipement de la cuisine est incomplet: couverts de service, casseroles et poêles en nombre insuffisant; nous l'avons dit à Vincenzo. Nous recommanderons ce gîte à nos amis

Un ottimo inizio

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo avuto il piacere di inaugurare questa splendida struttura in occasione delle vacanze di Capodanno, siamo stati i primi ospiti!! Venivamo da Roma e abbiamo affittato l'intera proprietà.

Il livello complessivo della struttura è perfettamente corrispondente alle aspettative suscitate da quanto offerto e descritto sul sito, addirittura superiore, L'accoglienza e l'assistenza sono stati di piena soddisfazione e la cortesia e la disponibilità di Vincenzo, l'architetto proprietario e ideatore della ristrutturazione dell'antico complesso, ci hanno consentito di passare delle bellissime giornate nonostante i rigori del clima della fine dell'anno (ottima la climatizzazione).

La struttura coniuga ambienti architettonicamente molto piacevoli tra tradizione e innovazione, a funzionalità, modernità e efficenza (notevole l'impiego di fonti energetiche rinnovabili fotovoltaiche ed eoliche, fibra ottica). Belli gli arredi.

Gli spazi esterni privati dei mini appartamenti e gli spazi esterni comuni, bellissima la piscina esterna che dato il clima non abbiamo però potuto utilizzare, disegnano e si immergono nell'ambiente rurale tipico del Salento tra muri a secco, olivi, fichi, piante grasse e vegetazione tipica della zona.

La zona soggiorno comune, in gran parte dotata di spledide vetrate che danno continuità con gli spazi esterni, è molto amplia e consente sia di socializzare che di svolgere attività in autonomia. La cucina è attrezzata con apparati industriali che abbiamo utilizzato per il cenone di Capodanno (eravamo, compresi gli ospiti, 28 persone comodamente sistemate nel grande soggiorno!).

La localizzazione: nella campagna salentina, sotto le stelle, a 10' dal centro di Lecce, a 15' dalle spiagge di San Cataldo sull'adriatico e a 25' da quelle joniche di Porto Cesareo e a mezz'ora da Otranto.

Cosa manca? Tornarci in primavera e in estate!

per la ristorazione consigliamo tre "must" della zonache abbiamo rivisitato per l'ennesima volta :

Le Zie - Cucina casareccia a Lecce (cucina salentina) - circa 27-30 euro

Zia Ferdinanda a Otranto (pesce e cucina salentina) dall'antipasto al dolce con buon vino della casa 37 euro

Osteria del pozzo vecchio a Cavallino (cucina salentina di carne, pesce e verdure) 35 euro. Nuova splendida gestione con attenzione speciale per materie prime a vero km 0
