Wow Wow Wow - Much more than you think

  • 5 of 5

Without question this is the most impressively equipped rental that we have had in 25 years of coming to Italy (and many rentals in the US). A week is hardly enough time to take advantage of everything that is on this property.

Now if you're an American (or any foreigner) looking at this, congratulations for finding Puglia and the Salento. You are way off the beaten track. This is an area of Olive trees and backwater italian towns. There are no gorgeous hills like Tuscany, but the land has it's own charm. The drive from Otranto down to S.M. Leuca is very beautiful (the drive up through the center back to the villa is not).

The villa is on a fast road at maybe 25 minutes from Lecce which is a beautiful city. 15 or 20 minutes to Otranto on a road that is currently under construction, but will be very fast and easy when it is done.

So let's talk about what the villa has to offer:

* The pool is a full lap pool of 17 meters if you believe Giuseppe's description, but we think it's longer. It's a fine pool to play in, but it's also a real pool to swim in.

* The grounds around the pool as you can see a gorgeous with 10 or so Lettini chairs for lounging. It has all the makings of a hotel pool.

* The tennis court is full sized, well fenced, with lights for night play. There are a few ripples in the surface, but in two matches, we had exactly one shot go astray as a result of the surface. Two buckets of balls, 4 rackets, a changing house with two showers and a toilet.

* The volleyball court is marked with boundaries down with cloth tape or something. We used it for badmitton, although it's really a volleyball net

* The foosball table has it's own patio and you don't have to put a dime in.

* The gazebo is huge with a table that sits a dozen easily and more if you wanted.

* The barbeque is olive wood. When you use it, as I did, Giuseppe cleans it all up the next morning and has it ready for you to go again.

* There are five bicycles, three of which are adult size. The back roads along the property provide a very safe and easy place to ride

* The pool table in the basement is first rate and the basement itself is very well done. I say this as someone who owns my own $2,500 pool table, so my standards are high. The pockets have an interesting shape not like US pool tables that make some shots particularly tricky.

* OK, the rook on the chess table is broken, work around it.

I've run out of characters. Look for part 2

Owner's Response: Thanks for the fine words and the careful analysis. We are glad that you enjoyed your vacation at Villa Le Crie. Every time you want to return to Salento you will be welcome. PS: We will repair the rook on the chess table.

Amazing villa and hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 10day stay at tenuta le crie ,we could not have asked for anything more , it exceeded our expectations in every way , Guissrppe and his son Mateo could not have been more welcoming kind gracious and generous hosts ,

The villa was amazing and immaculate , it was the most well equipped villa we have ever come across , it has a huge swimming pool with water polo nets and inflatables an outdoor whirlpool , sun beds with Canopies and parasols ,a wonderful outside eating area with fires BBQ and facilities that were replenished daily , it has a flood lit tennis court with changing /equipment building , baules lane ,badminton volleyball ruins ,books and a lovely resturant just down the track , karting is near by and otranto beach is 15 min drive away , we as a family of five , three young men with two girlfriends and great aunt could not have wished for more ,in the basement there is also a games room with an excellent pool table and chess !!

We did not have enough time to enjoy all that was on offer ,

The price also included a linen change and end of stay clean !

And as if this wasn't enough , Guisseppe would arrive around 6am every day to very quietly go about cleaning the pool and gardens etc all done and gone before we woke , it was as if the fairies had been ,Magical ,򒠠Thank you 😊

"An excellent villa, all ...

  • 5 of 5

"An excellent villa, all of fixtures and fittings and furniture were of very good quality. Clean, spacious, lovely pool, no chlorine taste or smell. The garden around the villa is very attractive and well maintained. The owner came every morning, cleaned all the surrounding area, the pool, barbecue, and even replaced charcoal and insect repellents, a wonderful service. It is ideally placed for exploring Salento, close to both Maglie and Otranto, my only reservation is that the main road is nearby, which is handy, but traffic noise is occasionally intrusive, you soon get used to it. An excellent villa with an attentive and conscientious owner. Highly recommended.

Bravo Giuseppe, complimenti!"

  • 5 of 5

"Very well organised and located property ideal for families. Flexible and helpful owners made the stay easy and great fun, perhaps some attention could be paid to provision of some more information on places to go, beaches even so Giusseppe was always very helpful with such advice and even provides a mobile phone to this affect a great touch."

Ottima location per vacanza di gruppo

  • 4 of 5

Splendida villa con spazi ampi, ben attrezzati, bella vegetazione, molto confortevole e rilassante, ideale per stare insieme a familiari ed amici numerosi per giornate intere. Viene voglia di non uscire e restare lì e sfruttare tutto quello che offre: piscina, volley, ping pong, tennis, bocce, biliardino, biciclette, biliardo, idromassaggio. Per il costo elevato in alta stagione, basterebbe poco di più per arrivare all'eccellenza: qualche riparazione in più, wi-fi e TV più moderni e efficienti, elettrodomestici più affidabili (lavatrice e frigorifero), più cura nei particolari. Comunque bellissima vacanza.

Owner's Response: Siamo contenti che finalmente qualche cliente abbia trovato qualche difetto e qualche recriminazione sulla nostra struttura. Solo ci dispiace che durante il soggiorno non ci è pervenuta nessuna segnalazione di problema, con il Wi.Fi. (installato due mesi prima) purtroppo abbiamo avuto problemi di segnale non dipendenti dalla nostra volontà e per il quale richiederemo un risarcimento danni. Per quanto riguarda il costo per altro scontato in quanto presentato da amici e rapportato al numero di persone che hanno soggiornato ci sembra abbastanza irrisorio. Un saluto Matteo e Giuseppe
