About the Owner

My name is Patrizia, my roots are in this land I call magic, as my website "salentomagico." After 32 years of living abroad and then to Milan, I decided one day to come back here, among these wonderful people, simple, hospitable to relive the atmosphere of other times that I have always carried in my heart. A life surrounded by nature, the scent of orange blossoms and flavors, the tastes of genuin food. A splendid sea at your doorstep. My partner follows me excited. We bought a farm and other historic homes, we have restructured and we thought to know this land to the world by providing our home and according to direct our guests the best in tourist itineraries, cultural and gastronomic was our best and heartfelt mission.

Magnifique maison parfaitement rénovée en plein coeur du village de SURANO, où nous avons eu la chance de séjourner pendant deux semaines au moment de Noël. Accueil très chaleureux de Patrizia et Roberto nous ayant donné d'excellents conseils et sont restés toujours très disponibles tout au long du séjour. La maison est superbe et très agréable, l'aménagement est parfait. Toutes les chambres sont bien chauffée et climatisées, chacune est bien indépendante des autres, avec sa propre salle de bain. La maison est grande, avec ses petits coins tranquilles, ce qui convient parfaitement pour trois familles. Les habitants de Surano sont réellement adorables et accueillants. À déguster absolument à moins de 100 m de la maison : le pain et les gâteaux du boulanger du village. Séjour pendant la fête de Noel avec ses illuminations et ses feux d'artifices très sympathiques. La Nativité vivant dans la belle et à proximité Specchia, les cheminées à la maison et dans les restaurants. Une belle atmosphère. Le temps chaud et ensoleillé avec des pics de 21 degrés nous a également permis d'aller sur les plages et découvrir le littoral et la mer des Caraïbes et sable blanc . Les agrumes plein de fruits dans les jardins que nous avons recueillies chaque jour pour faire un bon jus pour nos enfants. Fantastique! Le marmelades de Patrizia, excellent! Déjeuner à l'extérieur dans le jardin avec un soleil chaud en Décembre ... ce était super! La région du Salento est très belle ! À voir absolument : - Longer la côte de Castro à la pointe - Otranto pour son histoire - Santa Maria Di Leuca et la pointe Ristola et le plages de Pescoluse pour le coucher de soleil et ses eaux cristallines véritablement étonnantes . Les champs d'oliviers à perdre de vue - Lecce (la "Florence" du sud) - Alberobello et ses trullis (certes, un peu loin mais ça vaut le coup d'œil) En bref : séjour dans une magnifique région où tout est fait pour passer d'agréables moments pour petits et grands... Prévoir une bonne voiture pour rayonner sur l'ensemble du sud des Pouilles.

Merci encore pour tout Patrizia et Roberto

Amazing property for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

The property had been decorated and equipped to a very high standard. It contained everything we could have wanted and was exceptionally clean and well maintained. The terrace and pool were stunning, providing a wonderful outdoor living space. With 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms the accommodation was perfect for our family reunion. Patrizia met us on arrival and was extremely helpful. She advised on places to visit and even made reservations on our behalf. I would definitely recommend this property to everyone.

Great Holiday in Puglia

  • 5 of 5

The property is even better than it looks in the pictures. Beautiful decor and spacious environments ideal for family and friends holiday. The house is right in the middle of Surano, which is a beautiful town to walk and have a chat with locals. Location is good as the main beaches are at 15 to 35 minutes drive. Patrizia has been a great, trustful host and manager, all details were made clear from first contact. I highly recommend this property for an amazing holiday and Patrizia as a trusted owner in this website.

Un'indimenticabile vacanza in famiglia

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo trascorso al molino Santo Spirito una splendida vacanza in famiglia. La struttura è bellissima, rinnovata di recente, funzionale, curata nei dettagli e idealmente concepita negli spazi per il piacere di condividere preservando al contempo privacy e tranquillità. Surano è un piccolo paese molto piacevole e situato in posizione centrale per scoprire l'intera regione del Salento, che ci ha incantato per la bellezza di mare, entroterra e villaggi. Patrizia e Roberto ci hanno accolto con grande professionalità, la comunicazione è sempre stata ottima e grazie ai loro consigli la nostra vacanza è stata ancora più bella. Un'esperienza da raccomandare totalmente.
