We stayed at the wonderful villa for 2 weeks. Beautifully located in a quiet and peaceful setting. Fabulous home and very well equipped. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Local town is full of surprises - delightful bar and restaurant in the Square. Local bakery, food shopping all excellent. Weekly market in Martano definitely worth a visit. Many local places to go - especially perfect is Lecce - every street is full of stunning buildings.
Food - we ate in many local towns and all were wonderful. Beach - you do need to drive but not far. The public beach in Alimini is very good and the local beach bar has fabulous fresh calamari and delicious bruschetta.
