Tucked away in a beautiful residential area just a few minutes' walk from the local village shops and restaurants, and within ten minutes' drive of Lecce, Villa Palmira is a fine Apulian country villa with air-conditioned bedrooms and a good size pool set in a lush Mediterranean garden.
This is a substantial family home offering all modern comforts and privacy within its splendid grounds. Ideal for a family holiday, it is very easy to relax in such an idyllic setting; either by the pool surrounded by palm trees and scented shrubs, or under the pergolas where you can dine al fresco (and you can buy your fresh ingredients from the local shop, just a stroll away!)Being one of Italy’s most famed regions, Puglia has much to offer its visitors. Lecce, the capital of the Salento, is in itself a spectacular work of art. Wandering around the old town centre you will discover richly decorated Baroque churches and buildings, elegant boutiques and gourmet restaurants. Night life is exciting here, as music festivals, markets and cultural events take place inthe town’s squares throughout the summer. Villa Palmira is located at the very heart of the Salento region so you can easily reach both the Ionic and Adriatic coasts. You can enjoy the long sandy beaches at Porto Cesareo or Gallipoli, swim in crystal clear waters, and marvel at the striking seascape of rocky cliffs and prehistoric grottos at Santa Maria di Leuca and Otranto. Driving around Salento is pleasant too; you will be surrounded by olive groves and fields dotted with stone-built olive oil mills and ancient rural dwellings – the typical scenery of this very appealing part of Southern Italy.
