Description from manager

At only 8 minutes distance from the Ionian coast – Salento, in Puglia, you can find a modern country house located in a fenced in park, among all sorts of trees, such as olive trees and aromatic herbs. What was once a peasant house, today it has been transformed into a beautiful villa perfect for weekly holidays. Furnished with an eclectic contemporary style, both living rooms and the kitchen have glass walls that create, with great ability, a sort of continuity with the open spaces of the exterior.

Itaca is located near the village called Sava, situated between Lecce, Taranto and Brindisi, not far from the sea of Campomarino (more or less 10 kilometres), characterized by crystal clear waters.

This villa has 5 double bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, A/C and a fridge. When going out of the villa, there is a short path of a few meters leading to the swimming pool area, next to the pool there is a gazebo used as an outdoor massage area, a small gym and the guest house.

Being on flat land, Itaca is an ideal starting point for cycling tours to discover the caves, churches, farms and much more. Also many guests will like to the possibility to pick up organic fruit and vegetables in the garden of the villa. One particular detail; the grounds of the villa still have traces of past ages. Since it was completely submerged by the sea, you can still find presence of marine fossils.

Sava is located at the center of the triangle formed by Taranto-Brindisi-Lecce and other smaller villages, but full of history. Such as Oria, a medieval town, Manduria the largest center of the Messapi and the Ionian sea with its coastlines enlivened by beautiful dunes and crystal clear water, like only few in the world can offer. The nearest airport to get to villa Itaca is the one of Brindisi.
