About the property

An impressive manor from XII-XIV century, romantic and full of charm, surrounded by green spots, night destination of barn owls, built by Gualtiero VI of Brienne in the upland area of Falitte range, only 4Km from the sea, where you will stay in an antique stable, in a quiet and cool location, and you will sleep in a majestic great tower. In this unique, untouched and suggestive setting, suitable for a couple or for a three- four people family, you will feel plunged into the history of the Castle, around which the life of the little village has developed for over 800 years with the “Towers” district, which in 1500 formed a fortified barrage able to face or discourage Saracen attacks, with the courtyard houses and more than twenty-one underground oil mills.

A courtyard, a large terrace and a secret garden are available for the Hosts who will be welcomed by the householders. Here, while you walk or read a book, time will stop and you will be inebriated by the scent of orange blossoms, magnolia, jasmine and honeysuckle: it’s a world apart hidden behind a thick wooden entrance door.

Thanks to its position, you can easily reach all the main centers: Santa Maria di Leuca (9km); Gallipoli (40km); Otranto (50km) and Lecce (65km); you will be able to chose between the Ionian Sea (only 4km far), well known for its sandy beaches (“Maldives of Salento”) or for its Marina di Salve acknowledged 2013 Blue Flag, and the Adriatic Sea (9km far) with its distinctive rocky coast, cliffs, crystal waters, bays and grottos.

Sogno realizzato

  • 5 of 5

Il soggiorno ha superato le aspettative. Il fascino di un appartamento, unico nella suo conformazione, in un contesto irripetibile. L'attenzione nei particolari, dedicata dal proprietario, rende omogenea la bellezza di tutto il castello. La cortese accoglienza e la tranquillita' del luogo completano l'unicita' del soggiorno. Imperdibile.

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

Great escape in medieval castle....at a few kilometers from the Ionian and Adriatic Sea!

Every day you can choose to explore another beach ( fine sand, pebbles, rocks)

Our stay at the castle in the center of Morciano di Leuca was wonderful, the apartment was very quiet and delightful.

The restaurants that the owner indicated were very tasty ( home made pasta, local cheese, ...) and au Bon Marché.

Giuseppe is an excellent host, I can only recommend.

Affascinante ed accogliente!

  • 5 of 5

Dimora Storica incantevole gestita con amore e cordialità da Giuseppe.

appartamento freschissimo e silenzioso sia di giorno che di notte e ottimo posizionamento per tutte le mete de salento. Il pasese offre tutte le aatività commerciali a prezzi molto più bassi rispetto alla vicinissima costa! Qui si respira il vero Salento! Chiedete a Giuseppe info su ristorantini locali e su artigianato e sagre locali, è una miniera di sapere e saprà indirizzarvi al meglio!

Un'atmosfera meravigliosa

  • 5 of 5

Ho passato alcuni giorni con la mia famiglia in uno degli appartamenti del castello di Morciano e devo dire che è stata una magnifica esperienza. Quando si varca la soglia dell'imponente portone di ingresso, nella corte di accesso, nella immensa terrazza e nel giardino si respira un'atmosfera fuori dal tempo, che ti fa sentire rilassato e entusiasta allo stesso tempo. L'appartamento è essenziale nello stile, ma curatissimo e accogliente, così come la calda cortesia del padrone di casa, sempre prodigo di suggerimenti su come godersi le ore passate al castello e di consigli sulle escursioni da fare nei meravigliosi dintorni.

Il sogno di un castello!

  • 4 of 5

La sistemazione è accogliente, l'appartamento pulito e gli esterni da sogno. I proprietari gentili e disponibili, anche solo per consigli e suggerimenti su dove andare. Posizione ideale per visitarte sia la costa ionica che quella adriatica del salento, godendo di un po' di fresco serale. Ci torneri.

SS 101 from Lecce to Gallipoli (about 32km).

Go on SS 274 to Santa Maria di Leuca (about 39km).

Get out at junction to Morciano di Leuca and follow the direction to the village centre (1km).

We will welcome you giving any useful suggestions to treasure every single moment spent in Salento, showing amazing places, main events, typical restaurants and producers, extraordinary artisans and much more.

Finally, if during your staying you’ll come across a “Laurieddhu”, don’t worry: it’s an annoying goblin who sits on the belly of sleeping people to spoil their rest; he knots manes and horse tails to irritate the stable boys; etc.; any way, he always protects children.

Have a nice holiday in Salento.
