The Salento region in Puglia is home to the architecturally stunning art city of Lecce, the popular seaside cities of Otranto and Gallipoli, and the famous marina of Santa Maria de Leuca, among many other small traditional seaside and countryside towns and villages. Salento is delineated by Taranto in the north west and Brindisi in the north east and extends all the way down to where the Ionian and Adriatic seas meet – the very heel of Italy’s boot. Once a wild southern terrain, in more recent years the region has become popular with many travellers looking to escape to a traditional region with a slower daily pace. Whether you choose to stay at a Salento seaside villa, a beautifully restored luxury farmhouse (locally known as masseria) or a historic Palazzo, the Salento area of Puglia has many options for your next holiday in Italy. SopranoVillas offers a great selection of the best Salento villas for rent!
For those who prefer a seaside holiday, the cities of Otranto, Castro, Santa Maria di Leuca and Gallipoli are all great options. Santa Maria di Leuca is not only an important southern city because of its famous lighthouse, but it is also well-know for the beautiful marina where you can hire a boat for a day or even for an extended holiday on the Mediterranean. In addition to the plentiful accommodation options close to the main cities, one can also opt for a secluded Salento masseria, trullo or luxury villa along the coast with private access to the sea, for truly relaxing holiday. The best Salento villas are not only found on the seaside. Lecce is one of the largest cities in Salento and its unique architecture, known as barocco leccese, attracts many visitors from both Italy and abroad. Whether you choose to stay on the coast or more in land, Salento is sure not to disappoint!
