MICHELLE HOUSE 8 sleeps, elegant villa with park and pool close to Salento Sea



Updated: 21-Oct-2016

PRIVATE STRUCTURE. Michelle House is an elegant, classical-style villa in Torre Suda (a district of Racale) on the Ionian coast road that leads to Gallipoli, 300 metres from the sea. Extensive, continuous Gothic arches characterize the exterior, enhanced by the porch overlooking the beautiful pool which, at sunset, becomes the star attraction. The interior, refined and precisely laid-out, welcomes its guests into an elegant atmosphere. Its location allows guests to take advantage of the whole Salento coast from Gallipoli to Santa Maria di Leuca, the main towns which are just a few minutes' drive away.


The single-storey villa has two entrances, one on the coast road which leads directly into the large and bright living room and the other, more convenient and functional, at the back of the property, leading directly to the private parking area. From the porch overlooking the pool you go directly into the spacious kitchen with functional peninsula and to a multipurpose room with incorporated laundry which has direct access to the outside area. In the sleeping area you come first to a double bedroom with adjoining bathroom with tub then, continuing along the corridor, to a twin bedroom and a double bedroom with shared bathroom with shower and finally to a further double bedroom. The marked classic style and the refined furnishings characterize all the rooms, making Michelle House an elegant and welcoming villa, ideal for a holiday just a few steps from the sea and from the neighboring Salento towns where you can sample the meat and fish typical of the area.


The outdoor area, that measures about 1000 sqm is completely enclosed with a perimeter wall made of local stone in harmony with the magnificent Gothic-style arches. The external garden is concentrated mainly near the pool area and is characterized by tall palm trees and other ornamental plants that are reflected in the beautiful pool, framing it at sunset and creating the ideal setting for a cool, convivial drink. Next to the elegant porch overlooking the pool is the stone barbecue where you can prepare the typical delicacies of the area and spend the evening in a pleasant, refined atmosphere.

Swimming Pool

The beautiful infinity pool is clearly visible from the porch next to the kitchen and is the star attraction of the outdoor area. Rectangular in shape, it measures 6.50 x 11 m with a depth from 1.90 m to1m; the inner lining is in sky-blue cement and it has chlorine purification. Access to the water is by ladder. The paving around the pool is in local stone in harmony with the surroundings and, being an infinity pool, lending a special charm to the evening setting, ideal for unforgettable moments of relaxation. Adjacent to the pool is a convenient cold-water shower.

great villa, facilities, area, result = super hols

  • 5 of 5

I just want to take the time to send on some feedback on Michelle house 8 in Torre sud in puglia. We had a fantastic holiday and the villa was superb for our needs. On arrival, Marino the owner, met us and was excellent. The house is great with a super pool, grounds, bed rooms and catered for all our needs. We had a few great bbq's and all facilities were available as required. We would recommend that the bathrooms could be updated slightly, but this did not take away from our holiday.

The area is just fantastic and our vacation was a mix of relaxing, travelling to all the local areas of interest , including Gallipoli, Otranto , and many more, what a great place to base ourselves to see this beautiful area and experience the wonderful culinary delights of the region

In closing we would definitely like to return in the future, the villa was great and the area is fabulous and Marino was very helpful when required. Looking forward to a return visit soon and we would give it a 5 star rating! Thanks for a great holiday !

Regards, pat

Torre Suda is a district in the comune of Racale, in the province of Lecce and takes its name from the circular-shaped coastal tower built in the 15th century, 13.5 m high, erected as a bulwark against the raids of the Turks. It communicated visually to the south with Torre Sinfonò, in the comune of Alliste and to the north with Torre del Pizzo, in the comune of Gallipoli. The origin of the name, Torre Suda, is thought to date back to the fact that the watch tower, once its military functions had ceased, was sealed and used as a water cistern for the inhabitants of the district. Because of the infiltration of moisture, the walls of the tower seemed to "sweat" (sudare). The crystalline sea that bathes the coast of low rocks and small natural bays and the proximity to the many localities of Salento and to the well-known town of Gallipoli make the Ionian coast a summer tourist destination. A few kilometres away are fine, characteristic local restaurants where you can enjoy the typical Salento cuisine of land and sea and sample the excellent local wines. The first Sunday after Ferragosto (August 15) is the feast of Our Lady, Star of the Sea with the traditional Cuccagna a Mare (greasy pole over the sea).
