About Massimo

Hello, my name is Max and I am 47 years old.

Born and living in Galatina collaborate, together with my relatives in the management of the family business that deals with 25 years of treatment and coating of metals. I'm a sports guy, I love football, swimming and being in touch with nature.

This passion has strongly influenced the choice of family homes to the sea and in the countryside.

He began my father who found this house built in local stone in the middle of a beautiful red earth burned by the sun and it was love at first sight.

From that moment began the great adventure, that even today, we are involved with the rest of the family, in trying to bring back to the heyday, this beautiful farmhouse. I am a sociable and friendly person. I really like the music, good food (I can cook quite well), I love the spices and fine wine.

Married and father of Julia and Joseph twins of 9 years.

Massimo purchased this villa in 1980

Why Massimo chose Lecce province

Villa Edda is a wonderful villa, immersed in the green of the Salento countryside where my children spent the beginning of each summer season. Even on the hottest days, the bedrooms are always fresh thanks to the construction features of the house, the stone from Lecce, and the vaulted ceilings. Pleasant and joyful are the moments for children and adults alike, especially starting the next spring of 2016 when they will be able to enjoy a splendid swimming pool. A piece of heaven where you can spend a serene holiday without giving up joy and fun, by participating in the countless events organised around the communes of the Greek Salento.

What makes this villa unique

This dwelling features all the modern commodities and services. There are many spaces (a large living room, 3 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms) for being used by many people. It is ideal for families with children or friends wanting to spend time together, maybe by cooking on the barbecue in the garden. Still, the house’s kitchen has everything needed and a good household equipment such as an oven, a dishwasher, a fridge with freezer. Chatting and dining under the large and cosy veranda, or sit around the pool while listening to some music or reading a book. You will fully live each moment ,maybe by walking along the country lanes under a starry night.

Wonderful stay at Villa Eda

  • 5 of 5

We, a family of 5, have spent 3 weeks at Villa Eda in Galatina. We enjoyed every minute of it ! The house is beautiful and very well equipped. The brand new swimming pool is fantastic and on top of this there is a tennis court which we enjoyed at the end of sunny and warm afternoons, as well as during the evening. Our host Massimo is so welcoming ! Upon your arrival he offers fruits, vegetables, juices and wine as well as several specialities from Puglia. Massimo is taking care of his guests, in a very gentle and discrete manner.

Galatina is ideally placed in the Salento area (south of Puglia). Beaches can be reached in less than 30 minutes drive on either side: the sandy beaches near Gallipoli (or a bit north Porto Cesareo) on the west coast, or Otranto on the Adriatico sea, more rocky but spectacular ! The extreme south (Santa Maria de Leuca) is also very beautiful. Wake up early in order to avoid the crowds.

Our stay in Villa Eda is one of the most exciting as well as relaxing experience we have had for our family holidays.

Highly recommended !

Anne and Alain from Paris.

The sky is always blue

  • 5 of 5

From the first moment (arriving late and tired) Massimo welcomed us warmly in Piazza San Pietro in Galatina and in three minutes we arrived at the villa. We were immediately struck by the spaciousness and ambience of the villa.We were charmed by the decoration of the villa and we felt in an atmosphere of holiday from the start.The private pool and the tennis court have given hours of endless pleasure and enjoyed the villa so much that we rarely venture far.However we visited the wine cellars of Salice Salentino, the magnificent Cathedral of Lecce and the beautiful village of Specchia. Exquisite pasticciotto and ice coffee with almond milk.There are a lot of good quality baby equipment and 2 kitchenettes one internal and one external.We could not have asked for a better holiday and would highly recommend a stay here.

Great holiday between the countryside and the sea

  • 5 of 5

Today last day in villa Edda; is exactly as described, very clean and immaculately maintained. It is in an enclosed garden which makes it ideal for a family holiday. There is ample parking and two locking gates. The pool has an automated cleaning device so is pristine and the covered garden terrace is so luxurious. It is furnished with a dining table and chairs, recliners and deck chairs. The house has been restored and refurbished very tastefully, retaining most original features but also adding all mod cons. Everything worked which does not always happen in a holiday home! Massimo is delightful to meet and is very helpful. We drove to visit nearby Galatina and some coastal resorts. The house is so comfortable and easy we ate at home. I would wholeheartedly recommend this property to a friend.

Splendida dimora immersa nel verde!

  • 5 of 5

Vacanza unica in un posto magico.. il Salento!!!

Accolti da Massimo e Alessandra, gentili e disponibili per tutta la durata del soggiorno, abbiamo cominciato a godere delle meraviglie paesaggistiche, artistiche e culinarie del Salento.

La casa, grande, luminosa e confortevole, dotata di ampi spazi esterni e di una meravigliosa piscina di acqua salata completa di area idromassaggio e zona bimbi, ci ha consentito di trascorrere splendidi momenti all'aria aperta tra una gita fuori porta e l'altra.

La gentilezza del proprietario e i suoi preziosi suggerimenti sui posti da vedere, le cose da fare e le pietanze culinarie tipiche da degustare, hanno reso la nostra permanenza in Salento un'esperienza indimenticabile che ripeteremo senz'altro.

Non sappiamo quali altre meraviglie scopriremo del Salento, nè quali altre spiagge e suggestive scogliere ci attenderanno ma una certezza l'abbiamo ed è il rilassante, divertente e genuino soggiorno presso Villa Edda.

Un caloroso saluto a Massimo e Alessandra,

a presto!

Alessandro e Alessandra

Owner's Response: Grazie per i complimenti!!! Siamo felici che la posizione, i servizi ed i nostri consigli siano stati utili; in piscina l' adozione dell' elettrolisi salina permette di nuotare in un' acqua priva di odori svradevoli e composti chimici aggiuntivi favorendo un benessere psicofisico; un servizio in più per una migliore qualità del soggiorno. Ancora grazie e speriamo di rivedervi presto Un abbraccio Massimo ed Alessandra

Galatina is the belly button of the Salento. From here, it is very easy to reach all the best destinations for fully enjoying your holiday. Just to mention some:

1. At least see the sunrise one at Otranto, which is the first sunrise in Italy. We mainly watch it on January 1, but also in summer. It is very charming because of the crystal-clear view of the Albanian mountains.

2. Eat a "rustico". Typically from the Salento, the "rustico" is one of the most popular dishes among locals and tourists. Every summer, it turns out into a feast of fry food that can be found in every bar and fry shop of the Salento.

3. Visit Lecce and admire the beauty of its Duomo at night: the lights, the atmosphere, and the bell tower.

4. Eat a "bruschetta alla sagre" prepared with the "Ricotta Scante" with anchovies on top. Taste it to believe it. Go dive from the Poesi di Roca and the nearby cliffs, only for daredevils.

6. Watch the sunset at Porto Cesareo or at Gallipoli. Sunrise has to be seen at the Adriatic side.

7. Sip a mojito in a small wooden bar at the beach and enjoy the peace of the moment.

8. Go to the Maldives of the Salento, with crystal-clear water and a fabulous beach.

9. Visit an evening dancehall at the beach, a gem of the Salento summer nightlife.

10. Make at least one stop at the Notte della Taranta. In August, there are more than 15 of these festive nights. You have to try it at least once: let yourself go to the rhythm.

11. Spend the whole day at the beach: breakfast, a packed lunch, and even an afternoon with a nap included. Return after having watched the late sunset. This is relaxation!

12. Eat a "pittule salentine" (doughnut). This is a typical autumn dish, but reinvented in Salento style.

13. A must: choose to visit the Ionian or Adriatic, depending on where the wind blows. Just wake up and pick the one you want.

14. Walk through Lecce’s alleys at night. To many, it is more beautiful than during day.

15. Eat in a typical trattoria in the centre of the Salento’s inland. Be conquered by the generosity of these dishes and the humbleness of the trattoria’s owners.

16: Eat linguini with sea urchin in a seaside restaurant and let yourself cuddle by its scents.

17. Go visit the basilica of Santa Caterina.

18. Drink ice coffee with almond milk, but be careful: it might create a habit.

19. Listen to the stories of the small villages’ senior citizens: they narrate the stories of their youth while comfortably sitting at their doorstep.

20. Go visit Otranto’s cathedral.

21. Listen to a live concert on an outdoor location in the centre of Lecce: summer is pretty and has to be lived in downtown.

22. Visit Santa Cesarea Terme and admire the beautiful villas making up the centre.

23. Eat the original pastry of Ascalone.

24. See the world-renowned illuminations of the Festa di Santa Domenica in Scorrano.

25. Visit the cave of Bauxite of Otranto

26. Visit the Soffio Cave, a gift from nature in S. Maria di Leuca.

27. Eat some "frisella", a typical snack food with tomato and basil.

28. Visit the village of Specchia: one of the most beautiful villages of Italy.

29. Visit Acaya and its castle.

30. Eat watermelon at the beach.

31. Walk through the old town of Otranto, between the small white houses and the city walls.

32. Eat and drink at the Gusto di Maglie market.

33. Let the kids play in the water all day long.

34. Take a tour to Lecce’s churches; one even more beautiful than the other.

35. Visit Castro.

36. Taste some "Christmas" ice cream in Lecce.

37. Visiot the Notte della Taranta in Melpignano.

38. Togo Bay Beach

39. Dance until sunrise in the Dancehalls of Mamanera.

40. Eat shrimps in a seaside restaurant.

41. Walk at the beach during the first hours of the morning, when everything is quiet and peaceful.

42. Visit the heel of the boot: Santa Maria di Leuca.

43. Eat squid meatballs at "La Sagra de lu Purpu" in Melendugno.

44. Enjoy a summer downpour at the beach.

45. Enjoy water group dances.

46. Plunge into the Ionian Sea at Selvaggio Harbour.

47. Visit and taste some good Salento wine in a winery.

48. Do a "ronda" (a circle street dance to popular Salento music).

49. Go bathing in Ciolo and many others... Thanks to God, the Salento is a magical mix of earth, sun, and sea. It is unique for its history, its enotourism culture, its arts, and its traditions. Enjoy your stay!
