About Jennifer Walbridge
I am a Californian who has lived in Italy for close to thirty years. My Italian husband and I bought this house after years of loving Puglia and wanting to be part of a world beyond just a few weeks of summer holidays. The sheer beauty of the landscape, the local traditions, and elegant squares and villages have been a pleasure for all these years.
Jennifer Walbridge purchased this House in 2007
Why Jennifer Walbridge chose Presicce
We loved Salento and had been toying with the idea of purchasing a place of our own when a friend called and told us a "For Sale" sign just went up in the village. We saw pictures and bought it without even seeing it!

Salento is becoming the new place for discerning tourists- while the greater region of Puglia has natural beauty and countless places to explore, Salento is the area between Lecce and the most south-eastern tip of Italy, Santa Maria de Leuca. Salento has it all- incredible beaches, local music and dance festivals, a strong gastronomic tradition including mozzarella, burrata, pasta and an emphasis on both fish and meat dishes, while not ignoring offerings of produce and fresh fruit often sold straight off the fields from an old local farmer.
Presicce is one of southern Puglia's most charming villages. It is extremely walkable with a few restaurants and many local shops to buy produce, basics, local wine and olive oil. There is a supermarket very conveniently located just a few steps away.
Presicce boasts many summer music and dance festivals, with traditional foods and dancing by local artists. https://www.iborghiditalia.com/italia/puglia/presicce/
The best beaches in southern Italy are an easy drive, and there are various spots to choose from. Most beaches have well-organized parking areas and restaurants. Many guests stay for two weeks, fully indulging in Apulia's beauty and landscape.
Since the location of Presicce is ideal for sightseeing, you can enjoy day trips to famous Baroque towns such as Gallipoli and Lecce, with their stunning white-washed palaces and numerous places to dine. The entire coast is dotted with one amazing beach after another- our family likes diving from the rocks in Ciolo, followed by an aperitivo overlooking the sea. On the opposite coast but equidistant are sandy beaches with free public access or places to affordably rent beach umbrellas and sunbeds. I will provide a long guide of places not to miss- from food to sunsets to secret, hidden beaches.
