About the property

Ideal for group of 10/14 persons or 3 families with children (dogs welcome)

The villa is ideal for a large group of friends or for two / three families with children: fresh, welcoming and full of new appliances, has parking, garden and above all a breathtaking view of the sea.

Although many guests space is not missing (over 200 sq.m.). In fact we have three double bedrooms, each with a bunk bed Ikea (they are very comfortable) and a ceiling fan.

Thus 4 beds x 3 rooms + the possibility of adding another 2/3 beds in large living room.

Two of the three rooms have a separate entrance, this way it is possible to reconcile the different needs of any time of entry / exit from home.

The villa has two separate bathrooms, each with shower (plus two outdoor showers), kitchen and an open plan living room of over 60 square meters; although I am sure that you will be all day at sea, the real attraction of this part of Salento.

Just across the coast Torre San Giovanni Gallipoli (Corso Annibale), and you can dive into the most beautiful sea of ​​Salento. The distance from the gate of the villa to the sea is less than 100 meters: there is a short path in the Mediterranean (in the middle of Natural Park of Ugento SIC) and leads to a low cliff, even very easy for younger children and, in addition all accessible to people with disabilities through a wooden walkway that is mounted in the summer by the city for some residents forced in a wheelchair.

The cove is a paradise for lovers of free diving, thanks to a truly fantastic flora and fauna.

only love the sand and do not want to take the car to go to sea? No problem. The trendy "Lido Crazy", with free beach + equipped beach is 500 meters from the house and is therefore accessible by walking for 10 minutes.

The esplanade of the beaches, over 10km of dunes of fine sand of coral (the so-called Maldives of Salento) is about 8 km in the direction of Santa Maria di Leuca (who is over 30km).

Along the coast the same in the opposite direction (to the north) you get to Gallipoli (15 km). The village of Torre San Giovanni is 3 km, but you will not go there for the daily needs. Near the villa there are in fact several mini markets, as well as bar, restaurant, pizzeria, church, newsagent, etc.

You can have lunch and dinner at home with total comfort: the kitchen has an oven, large fridge and all crockery. The large living room has tables and chairs for large tables (we we did in the past lunches of August 20 people!). The kitchen is still large enough to have breakfast, although we prefer to eat outside, in the front garden or on the raised terrace overlooking the sea or in the back garden which is equipped with a canopy in a well-shaded rods and, more distant than a great fig tree. Right here there is also space for the barbecue (you should not miss the grilled fresh fish to buy in the harbor fish market).

For eating out do not recommend Gallipoli (unique spenna-tourist resorts of Salento). I will suggest a bit 'of beautiful places in the medieval village of Felline (7 km away) in Ugento, Ruffano, Casarano, Lecce and Taurisano.

Great villa in front of the Ionian Sea in the south Salento (San Giovanni - Ugento Torre)
average rating of 5.0 based on 2 reviews

Great location, great holiday destination!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Mario's villa extremely tired after a 3 day car voyage but were made to feel very welcome on arrival. Mario had brought us some lovely cheeses, bread, olives and melons (and a bottle of Rose wine :) It was very kind and thoughtful for him to bring us a taste of the lovely local food. The villa is spacious and clean and only 50 meters from the sea - which meant that we could have a swim whenever we wanted without having to walk to a beach or take the car. Mario was a good landlord and was available if we had any questions. We had a fabulous holiday in a beautiful country!

Villa spettacolare, Mare da favola

  • 5 of 5

Una settimana da sogno nel salento, con una comitiva di 12 amiche e amici. Mare di fronte casa davvero spettacolare. Ogni giorno abbiamo cambiato spiaggia o scogliera, muovendoci quasi sempre a piedi. Unico difetto: Gallipoli è un po' lontana e bisogna prendere l'auto (che non avevamo).

La villa è grande e comoda. Tutto perfetto!

The equipment of the villa includes complete dinnerware for up to 14 people, all kinds of pot and kitchen utensil, large and small appliances. TV decoder (if you have the vs Sky card, bring it!). Upon request we provide linens. Also on request, Convention with breakfast restaurant 50 meters away.

It will give you two sets of keys, and you can manage the villa in full and autonomous management.

The sea is the most beautiful resort in the area.

In front of the house there is a low cliff and easily accessible for everyone (including handicapped thanks to a wooden platform). For sand lovers, 400 meters there is a small public beach and the elegant lido "Crazy" (for a fee, just in front of the homonymous small island).

There are many transport links in the surrounding area.

The ideal is to rent a bike or scooter and turn the north and south coast in this way.

The countries as required most beautiful and characteristic of southern Salento are all near Torre San Giovanni Ugento, Torre Paduli, Casarano, Gallipoli, Specchia. Santa Maria di Leuca is 20 minutes. Lecce is 50 minutes.
