Hello, my name is Max and I am 50 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. Father of Julia and Joseph twins of 12 years.
Massimo purchased this Villa in 1980
Why Massimo chose Galatina
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. 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 to live it in every season ( cooling with air conditioning and heating with radiators ). There are many spaces (a large living room, 3 bedrooms, 2 sofa beds and three bathrooms, one of which is located near the swimming pool ) 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.

Great home from home
The villa was lovely, very well equipped including tennis court, table tennis, archery and lots more. The villa delivers everything that it claims on the website and exceeds it. Massimo was very welcoming and attentive (even bringing us breakfast one morning) throughout our stay, I really loved staying here and have no reservations about recommending it.
So much for kids to do!
Property owners instantly replied to any emails and requests. Check in was smooth with no waiting. What separated this villa from others we have stayed in on previous holidays were the villa facilities. A huge pool. A table tennis table in perfect condition. Table football. Darts. Archery. Trampoline. Kids badminton kit. Tennis court in pretty good condition. Bikes of various sizes and the villa large enough for our kids to cycle around the property. The kids absolutely loved it and busy kids = happy holidays!
Thank you for having captured a very important aspect of Villa Edda.
If the holiday is peaceful and happy, it makes us feel a different perception of everything. The rhythms seem softer even if they are not. To have this you need to offer services that meet the needs of the whole family.
Greetings from Salento to you and your wonderful family.
Best price-quality in Salento! An outdoor paradise
Villa Edda is central in Salento, an easy drive to historic cities, beautiful beaches etcetera. But the villa and its garden are só gorgeous, that it's more attractive to stay there instead of going out ;-)
The villa was very clean, good matrasses. The garden is extraordinary spacious and green, very well-kept. A beautiful new pool, a tennis court, lots of seats in the garden or at the veranda. A new sauna cottage in the garden. Lots of outdoor toys, bikes, a BBQ, an outdoor kitchen. It's a Paradise!
The owner is a kind Italian man, who made our stay as perfect as possible. Easy communication by Whatsapp or telephone.
We will definitely return to the villa to have a relaxing family holiday (7yo to 70yo, we all enjoyed so much) in a beautiful region. Galatina historic center is nearby (5min drive, 15min bike), not discovered by many tourists yet. Lecce is lovely too. The beaches and sea are beautiful. Lecce and beaches can be reached in half an hour.
I have been in many holiday homes through Italy but this place and this owner are excellent!!
A slice of heaven, deep in southern Italy.
The gates swung open via remote control, and Villa Edda appeared before us, even better than in our dreams. We fell in love with this idyllic place on line from Australia, but the reality was even better. We travelled to Puglia to celebrate an important birthday, and over two weeks 15 friends and family spent time with us at Villa Edda. It was the perfect place... comfortable, luxurious, exceptionally clean and spacious. The grounds behind the wall are astonishing, dozens of mature trees providing shady spots to relax with a drink after tennis on the hard court or a swim in the dazzling pool. Everything is provided in this amazing resort...inside and outside kitchens, a terrific barbecue, tennis racquets, archery, books and hammocks...and bicycles to ride into Galatina to do the shopping or have a cappuccino and cake. We hired a car to take us out to the coast but chose to stay home on many days to simply enjoy the amazing facilities.
Massimo is an outstanding host...warm and helpful, kind and generous (he had the kitchen stocked with fruit, vegetables, wine and even homemade pasta sauce on our arrival). Wow...what a start to what became a truly unforgettable holiday.
We cannot recommend Villa Edda highly enough... truly a home away from home. Thank you Massimo from the bottom of our hearts...we will definitely be back. Bellissimo!
Ciao, Anne and Murray, Sydney Australia
Hello Anne and Murray, we had the pleasure of hosting you, but above all the chance to meet you and your friends. Your sympathy has hit everyone! (greets Dario the gardener). Thank you for the review. We hope one day to see you again!
Ciao, famiglia Giurgola Massimo
A fantastic villa for our (2 families) vacation
We spent 10 days at Villa Edda with 4 adults and 2 sets of kids - 10 and 16 years old, and we had a wonderful time. Massimo was the best host, giving us not only very precious tips on beaches to go to depending on the winds and nearby festivals, but spoiling us with local treats and fresh produces. The villa has all the comforts of a luxury resort - perfectly maintained garden, beautiful pool with all kinds of amenities, tennis court with raquets and balls, bow and arrow, a well-equipped kitchen and a great bbq. The house was comfortable for the 8 of us, and was extremely clean when we arrived. The beds are very, very comfortable. There is air conditioning in every room for the hot days, and even a perfecty built brand-new sauna complex for the colder season (but can be used any time) . The villa is located in a secluded compound at a few kilometers from a very lively town, and at easy driving distance to the best beaches of the Salento region and other lovely towns with lots of history and beautiful churches and monuments to visit. Thank you Massimo & family! We’ll be back soon!
Dear Mrs. Anna ... thanks for the thought and appreciation ... two beautiful families that I hope to see again soon.
A warm hug
Villa fantastica ...
Per chi vuole farsi inebriare dal verde e rilassarsi nella pace più assoluta, Villa Edda è il posto ideale.
La posizione nel cuore del Salento, una grande e pulitissima piscina a sfioro con acqua salata ( senza odore di cloro ), i gonfiabili, il campo da tennis, l'ampia e attrezzatissima pergola ricca di gelsomini, l' area relax ben appartata, un curatissimo giardino ed un bel parcheggio per le macchine fanno di Villa Edda un luogo speciale dove soggiornare.
Le camere sono ben arredate e con aria condizionata, tutte le finestre sono dotate di zanzariere, i letti sono molto comodi ed i bagni molto puliti.
Il padrone di casa Massimo è estremamente gentile e disponibile, pronto a consigliare su ristoranti, luoghi da visitare, scorciatoie per raggiungere i diversi posti. Divino il buffet di benvenuto e squisiti i prodotti locali dolci e salati che cia ha offerto durante il soggiorno.
Per chi ama la natura ed ha piacere a conoscere belle persone, Villa Edda è assolutamente da non perdere!
Un saluto ai tuoi figli Giulia e Giuseppe!
