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.

Mono "Laurieddhu"
average rating of 4.8 based on 10 reviews

Suggestivo tranquillo e posizione strategica

  • 5 of 5

Il Castello, che si trova nel cuore di Morciano di Leuca, offre la possibilità di trascorrere le proprie vacanze in totale tranquillità e relax grazie alla posizione strategica che ti permette di raggiungere le più belle spiagge del Salento in poco tempo ma anche di visitare le vicine cittadine sia sul versante jonico che su quello adriatico.

Il monolocale in cui abbiamo alloggiato ha l'esposizione su un incantevole giardino segreto ed è provvisto di tutto ciò di cui una coppia ha bisogno in vacanza.

Grazie alla cucina accessoriata è possibile poter cucinare il pranzo da portarsi in spiaggia, cosa che per noi era indispensabile.

La struttura di epoca medievale offre spazi comuni molto belli e suggestivi molto ben curati e comodi.

Il proprietario, il signor Giuseppe, è una persona molto cordiale e disponibile.

Ci ha fatti trovare un grazioso cestino di benvenuto in cui erano confezionati delle prelibatezze tipiche del luogo, in modo anche da facilitarci la permanenza grazie a delle accortezze che solo un buon proprietario di casa ha.

Insomma, abbiamo trascorso una vacanza bellissima grazie anche alla scelta di soggiornare in un posto così bello.

Historic, tranquil and value for money

  • 4 of 5

#6638042 - Moricano Di Leuca

We spent ten days in the castle of Morciano at the height of the summer. The room is simple, but comfortable and clean. The sense of history surrounding you in this castle is incredible. The walls keep the

rooms cool whereas other buildings would have to resort to air conditioning. Morciano allows you to visit incredible beaches within half an hour. The restaurants that our host Giuseppe suggested

were all treasures for the high quality of the food and their great value. In addition, Giuseppe organized a tour of Lecce for us with a phenomenal guide who spent two hours with us revealing its

rich history through churches and ancient structures. Morciano may not be an obvious holiday destination but if you are looking for quality and value for money with an insider's perspective on this area of Puglia it is well worth the trip. Also of special note is the fruit and vegetable shop opposite the castle run by two wonderful women, and Il Pasticiotto for the most amazing patisserie.

Un posto incantevole per le vacanze

  • 5 of 5

Il fascino senza tempo del castello di Morciano e la cordialità del padrone di casa hanno reso il nostro soggiorno unico ed indimenticabile.

Io ed il mio ragazzo abbiamo scelto il mese di giugno per visitare il Salento, sia perché c'è meno affollamento e più tranquillità rispetto ad agosto, sia per l'impareggiabile mare cristallino.

Abbiamo trascorso una settimana fantastica!

Il nostro alloggio era confortevole, per i momenti di relax avevamo a disposizione un'ampia terrazza oppure ci rifugiavamo in un incantevole giardino segreto che, con il suo profumo di gelsomini e caprifoglio, ci ha trasportato in un'atmosfera magica.

Il padrone di casa è stato gentile e disponibile e ci ha dato molte informazioni utili. Ci ritorneremo sicuramente!

Fascino antico confort moderno

  • 5 of 5

Felici: abbiamo alloggiato in un castello medioevale, ancora abitato dai proprietari, molto gentili e prodighi di informazioni utili per migliorare il nostro soggiorno (spiagge ristoranti siti artistici e artigiani locali).

Si dorme sotto le antiche volte, godendo la vista del giardino di agrumi (ovviamente tutto è pulito ed ordinato).

Il paese è piacevolmente tranquillo e a pochi minuti d'auto si raggiungono le spiagge ed i borghi più gettonati/affollati.

Il tutto a prezzo modico: Lo consigliamo

A perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

Great escape in medieval 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.

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.
