Apulia Calabria and Basilicata - Specchia
Location and Surrounding Area
Located halfway between the Ionian Sea and the Adriatic Sea, this exceptional five-bedroom masseria is ideally situated to offer complete relaxation and privacy to its guests, providing an opulent escape for those who want to explore this exclusive area. Famous for its whitewashed towns, excellent food, dramatic coastal cliffs and beautiful beaches, this area of Southern Apulia features all the ingredients for the perfect vacation.
On the Adriatic side from Castro to Santa Maria di Leuca there is the rocky coastline made of cliffs, coastal dunes and wonderful coves. On the Ionian side, from Santa Maria di Leuca to Gallipoli you will find some of the most beautiful sandy beaches such as Marina di Pescoluse, Porto Cesareo, Torre Lapillo and Punta Prosciutto. All these beaches are easily accessible by car. Traveling by car is also a very pleasant experience as the countryside surrounding Specchia is covered with centuries-old olive groves and vineyards.
Santa Maria di Leuca boasts one of the biggest and most fascinating tourist ports in Salento, with 760 mooring places that can accommodate boats up to 40 meters long. The coast, surrounded by Punta Ristola and Punta Meliso, alternates cliffs and beaches, with the characteristic “bagnarole” made of stone. In Leuca, you will also find the fascinating marine caves that can be visited via boats: the marine life and crystal-clear water underneath the caves make them a perfect hotspot for snorkeling and scuba diving.
The city of Gallipoli, Greek for Beautiful City, is a pearl in the blue waters of the Ionian Sea. The port has established it as a maritime town for centuries and it still has an active fishing trade. It was a trade port with ties to Orient, as seen in some of the decorations and touches around town. The elegant old center hints at its once important past.The beaches are known throughout Italy as some of the cleanest around, with colorful rows of umbrellas and bright seafront bars and restaurants decorating them in the summer.
The villa is also a few kilometers from Otranto, a natural bridge between the Mediterranean and the East, and a charming land where the ancient atmosphere of the historic center goes hand in hand with a lively nightlife. In less than forty minutes by car, you can easily reach Gallipoli, whose name means “beautiful city”: before exploring the narrow and paved streets of the historic center, from where you can catch an occasional glimpse of the sea, stop off at the fish market and mingle with the crowds.
