About Patrizia Carrone

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 them and we thought that renting our homes to tourists coming from all the world, could be a great way to let people know this wonderful land, rich in history, great nature, great food and with wonderful sea.

Patrizia Carrone purchased this villa in 2014

Why Patrizia Carrone chose Surano

I 'm sure that people here could really have relax, as the house is comfortable, charming, full of light and sunshine, rich of citrus and orange trees .

Restored with all comforts but paying attention to maintain all the original characteristics of the tipical ancient salentin houses, what people love to find in Salento. A bit of history as it was the old Mill of the village and this enchanted me !!

What makes this villa unique

Open spaces, citrus beautiful view of the countryside yet convenient situation in the old town with all the facilities and amenities at a few steps. The locals are warm and simple, the country is simply fantastic with ancient and magnificent olive groves and the sea is just a few minutes, caribbean! It 's full of light and sun with the most beautiful shade that you might have: the natural trees shade...

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 Holiday!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the absolute best week at the house in Surano! The house itself was perfect - beautifully designed, super comfortable for families and with an amazing set up with the kitchen and outdoor area right next to each other so the kids could play. Patrizia was so helpful all throughout the week as well - helping us with dinner reservations, babysitters and recommending the best beaches for each day. She really made us feel welcome and helped us to get the most out of visiting this incredible corner of Italy. We will definitely be back!!! One of the best holidays we have had for a long time! Thank you Patrizia!!

Bref un séjour réussi dans un environnement local bien marqué.

Wonderful family meeting at the stunning Holy Spir

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful family vacation at the Mill. It’s a stunning villa, recently renovated, functional, with a great attention to detail and ideally designed spaces for the pleasure of sharing while preserving privacy and tranquility. Surano is a small town very pleasant and centrally located to explore the region of Salento, which has enchanted us for the beauty of the sea, hinterland and villages. Patrizia and Roberto welcomed us with great professionalism, communication has always been excellent and thanks to their advice our vacation was even more beautiful. An experience to recommend totally.

High Standard

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Pat. I truly enjoyed my stay here and felt you have put together a most exceptional property. I also appreciated your personal attention and help in our requests. I will be happy to be a reference for you on the quality of the property. It would have been nice to get to know you and Roberto better and it is too bad time did not allow that. Do let me know if your travels take you to NY, Seattle or Los Angeles and it may be nice to meet again. I really recommend it to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday, with beautiful places, rich in history and surrounded by beautiful countryside and a caribbean sea. Again thank you, Best regards, Sara

nice house in Surano / Puglia

  • 5 of 5

A nice renovated house, suitable if you want to rent a house together with other families. Good kitchen and a nice patio with a dining area and pool. The pictures on the page correspond well with reality. Surano is a nice village with restaurants / grocery store within walking distance and is a good starting point for exploration of Puglia.

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.
