About Cecilia Nobili

Hello, my name is Cecilia and I am a reseracher in Classics at the University. I live in Milan with my husband Fabio and our two children but we spend our summer vacations in Puglia, the most beautiful region in Italy. The beaches and the history of thi counrty are unique.

Why Cecilia Nobili chose Gagliano del Capo

We love spending our summers in Salento. This is the reason why in the course of the year my family bought several houses in this area. When we are not there all together we give the Fico d'India for rent to our guests and friends.

What makes this house unique

The Fico d'India is a lovely house, restored in accordance to the Salento tradition. It's cool and friendly and from the roof terrace you can enjoy an amazing view over the roofs of Gagliano del capo (the so called Kashba) and the surrounding countryside. The sea is easy to reach: in 5 minutes drive you swim in the clear and rocky waters of the Adriatic sea; and in 15 minutes drive you can reach the long and sandy beaches of the Ionian coast.

Car: recommended

Gagliano del Capo is a lovely village, located 3 km away from Santa Maria di Leuca and 2 km away from the beautiful Adriatic coast.

From its overhead position you can enjoy an amazing view over the sea and the surrounding countryside. It is a very lively village, with shops, restaurants and the typical saturday market.

Our house is located in the old town, in the quite and pedestrian via Tasso. Its old houses have been recently refurbished by the owners with great attention to the traditional style, and are now charming and fascinating holiday houses.

In summer Gagliano offers a lot of cultural events (exhibitions, shows,  concerts, "sagre"), but the old town always remains very quite and peaceful.

Far from the mass-tourism of other locations in Salento, Gagliano hosts some élite visitors, who stay in the old palaces now converted into bed and breakfasts, and in the exclusive villas.
