We had the best vacation ever. Gaetano was really helpful and a great host. The villa is amazing! Beautiful Beach is in front of the villa. Saint Andreas cliff hike overlooking the ocean is to the right and Rocca Vechio swimming hole is to the left walking distance. Both amazing views. The beach is crystal clear water. Grocery store and restaurants across the street. We are definitely going back. Very romantic as well. A vacation I will never forget. The local people are super nice also.
Amazing house, amazing loaction
We are just back from a sunny and warm November week at Villa Cappello. We were amazed at the size of the villa and the kind of secret garden feel of the garden. Our four children, age 10-5, loved it, and so did we.
The villa is really on the beach and we brought our morning coffees to the beach and sat and watched the children playing and swimming. Such a treat when from a dark, cold Nordic country.
The interior of the villa is great. It has personality, style and charm, and is nothing like the cheap vacation complex that one can find in the Mediterranean. It's not new but cool.
The town itself was kind of empty as it was off season. But there were two small groceries across the street that were open, and the sweet and ice cream shop Dentoni's were open( and packed) on weekends.
The hotel bar and restaurant is open everyday, which is a short walk from the villa.
There are many places to visit in the surrounding and we managed to go to Lecce and Otranto, but the kids preferred staying at home or being at the beach.
We could recommend walk to the small beach at Torre Sant'Andrea. The walk(or run) is beautiful and so is the Sant'Andrea beach.
Gaetano and Angiola welcomed us upon arrival with a home made lasagna. They helped us quickly and gladly whenever needed, but never in an intruding way.
I would gladly go back, but with more friends- the house is huge!

Great holidays with friends
My friends and I spent a very good week in the villa ! Prior to our arrival I had a very good contact with Gaetano by emails. We were warmly welcomed when we arrived, we parked 2 cars safely inside. Everything was OK then : the location close to the "city center" (small shops, restaurants, bars) and to the beach (crowdy in summer), the villa is clean, big, but hot due to the weather (each bedroom has a little air conditionner). I have to say it's a bit loudy, the villa is surrounded by bars. We enjoyed the barbecue in the garden and playing tennis (is it possible to renew the tennis court ?). We were happy to discover the pugliese, very nice place.
Siamo stati nella villa in 9 persone, pulitissima, attrezzatissima, comoda per qualsiasi spostamento, si trova di fronte ad un mare meraviglioso nella baia di torre dell'orso. abbiamo avuto un'accoglienza dal signor gaetano molto amichevole ed ospitale. Consigliamo la villa a tutti per una vacanza indimenticabile!! speriamo di rivederci il prossimo anno!! saluti da Donatella e Martina da Roma.
Nous avons passé une semaine en octobre 2015. Nous étions 2 familles, c'était l'idéal, un étage par famille. La maison est grande et spacieuse, très bien entretenue. La proximité de la mer et du village est très arrangeant pour tout faire à pied. L'accueil était formidable, nous arrivions tard mais le propriétaire était là pour nous accueillir, ils avaient prévu du lait et un petit encas car nous avions des enfants en bas age. Merci encore ...
Beautiful house and perfect guests
We spent one week in this house, and enjoyed a lot our trip there: the house was beautiful, so close to the beach, and we even had a tennis game in the garden!
A good point is that the house is very calm, and not far from nice cities of Salento.
The guests were very nice, Gaetano even went to Lecce to bring back the phone my mother has forgotten in a restaurant some days before!
