5 Bedrooms – Pool
With its plentiful play areas around the pool, Villa Letizia makes an ideal holiday destination for larger families with children.
Location and Surrounding Area. Villa Letizia is set in a magical area of Puglia in the southern heel of Italy. It is about 10 km south of Lecce and only a couple of kilometers from the renown blue flag, white sand beaches of Torre dell'Orso and San Foca. The coastline offers caves and hidden sandy coves for the adventurous and well-equipped beach bars for the less adventurous. San Foca was once a fishing village and its picturesque harbour is an important tourist port as it lies roughly halfway between Brindisi and Otranto.
Beautiful baroque Lecce has to be seen to be believed. It's the perfect destination for wandering around little lanes and admiring the distinctive 17th century architecture. It has a delightful historical centre and an excavated Roman amphitheater.
The city of Otranto is about 20 km away and offers all the splendours of an original Greek settlement. The city's story is perhaps best told in the cathedral with its large-scale mosaics dating back to the 12th century and the bones of the 813 martyrs displayed behind the altar.
The nearest international airports are Brindisi (70 km) and Bari (200 km).
