Salento Sunset Holiday Villa

Flytosalento: The best value Sunset holiday rental property is only few steps (200 meters) from the trendy chic beach and the crystal clear sea of Baia Verde, a holiday district close by Gallipoli that is only a couple of kilometers from the old centre.

Both of the two floors boast three bedrooms, comfortably giving lodging to six (5+1) people on the ground floor and 7 people (6+1) on the first floor. While on the ground floor there are two full bathrooms with shower, there is only one full bathroom on the first floor. What is more, most of the furnishings in both apartments are pretty similar. A long pine table with chairs and a cupboard are into an adorable living room with a relaxing sofa-bed next to the fireplace that can be used also as BBQ. Pine sliding doors divide the dining area from a wide kitchen equipped for self-catering. A lovely sun-porch is the proper place for toasting your Italian holiday in a good local rosé wine and mouthwatering, Mediterranean flavoured appetizers.Right over the gate of the villa a short foot-path leads straight to the beach.

Salento Dolce Vita on Caribbean Gallipoli Beach: The best value Salento Sunset holiday Villa is ideal escape for both romantic honeymoons and also for amazing family vacations:the CHIC BAIA VERDE BEACH is almost out of doorstep, so while children enjoy swimming,diving,playing beach-volley for the whole day,adults can finally free their mind from job activities, attending amusing Latin-American dance lessons or relaxing sunbathing, drinking something cooler.At sunset beach is gorgeous, it is peace and quiet everywhere and it is ideal time for yoga training,kayak,kitesurfing or for long tonic walks in Caribbean warm waters,indeed you can walk for miles.At night,in a fashion restaurant-disco-pub in the pine-wood,in front of the beach, PRAJA,people enjoy DOLCE VITA dancing and appreciating our Mediterranean mouthwatering local food.Excellent FISH MARKET is in Gallipoli for your BBQ dining at the villa.All around Salento area, spectacular lighting projects to honour religious feasts and typical gastronomy carnivals called SAGRE.

Charming sea places to visit: From the panoramic motorway Lecce-Gallipoli-S.Maria di Leuca (ss101-274), that is situated at the back of Baia Verde, you can explore the most beautiful places of Salento. A gorgeous natural park, for example, on the Ionic coast ,from where, after a twenty minutes walk through the maritime pine-wood, you will discover a tiny beach in front of a blue-sky sea: it is a paradise! Little villages of fishermen,where you can taste delicious fresh fish and from the hill, at night, you can admire the charming lighted gulf of Gallipoli that seems like a nativity scene. Leuca, the extreme part of the Salento Peninsula, is very easy to reach through the picturesque seaside road. From there, at sunrise, you can watch the suggestive scenery of the pink Albanian mountains. Otranto, on the Adriatic coast, is the historic town of martyrs. They can be visited in the cathedral, where there is also an antique precious mosaic floor representing the tree of life.

Fly to Salento: A toast to my guests!: May the road rise to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face.

And rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.

Swimmer's delight!

  • 4 of 5

The villa is situated in an ideal location. Short stroll to beautiful beach with crystal clear water. We enjoyed swimming early morning before breakfast (lovely croissants bought locally) days on the beach and evening swims. The villa is very well equipped for a self catering holiday. The outdoor shower was great to use after visits to the beach or for an instant cool down! The local shops are within walking distance and supplied everything we needed. Lovely man selling fruit from his truck, the most beautiful figs we have ever tasted!

The owner, Guisy was full of suggestions about places to visit. We visited Lecce, a beautiful historic city, Santa Maria di Leuca (right at the southern tip where the adriatic and ionian seas meet),Torre San Giovanni (more swimming), Punta della Suina(lovely snorkelling and swimming)

Grazie mille Guisy for the local cakes and beautiful tomatoes, grapes and melon and the opportunity to explore the beautiful Salento area.

Excellent location, great amenities

  • 4 of 5

This apartment occupies the ground floor of a 2-story villa, and comprises of parking facilities (gold dust!), a nice spacious terrace and outside shower, great when you return from the beach, which is less than 5 minutes walk away. The inside is spacious and functional, with a nice kitchen and lounge, which includes an indoor barbecue. The 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms were perfect for our family of 4. The location is very convenient, just outside the picturesque town of Gallipoli. Baia Verde, where the villa is situated, includes a small selection of essential shops, including a great tavola calda, which sells delicious freshly cooked snacks, dishes and pizza for either lunch or dinner. For eating out you need to go into Gallipoli, and Giusy, the owner of the villa will provide plenty of suggestions for restaurants in different parts of Puglia. Giusy has been extremely helpful and always available, on hand for any queries. We used the villa as a base from which we visited many parts of Puglia and we had a wonderful time.

Ottima base dal quale visitare il stupendo Salento

  • 4 of 5

Questa villetta e' estremamente conveniente da un punto di vista posizione, appena fuori la bellissima cittadina di Gallipoli. Per noi e' stata una base perfetta per visitare varie parti della Puglia su ambedue i lati della penisola. È anche vicina a negozi e un'ottima tavola calda nel tranquillo quartiere di Baia Verde. L'appartamento occupa il piano terra di una villetta e quindi ha una bella terrazza. L'interno e' spazioso con una ampia sala e cucina, e tre camere da letto con 2 bagni. Per una famiglia di 4 come noi è stato perfetto. La proprietaria Giusy e' stata molto cordiale e sempre disponibile, e ci ha inoltre dato degli ottimi suggerimenti sulla zona che consiglio di seguire, se come noi non conoscete bene il Salento. Siamo stati molto bene e speriamo di poter tornare il prossimo anno. Grazie di tutto Giusy!

Helpfull tips

  • 3 of 5

The villa is in a really good location with easy access to the beach that is only a short walk away. The villa was clean yet basic. A welcome pack with basics like toilet paper and washing up liquid would have been nice after a day of travelling. If it was a family going, i would make sure that bathing towels are packed as the towel supplied are very small, and the advertised washing machine is a table top small version, only good for light use if any. The pation furniture could do with updating as most of the chairs are starting to rust on the joints and could be dangerous if left another season.

The local supermarkets are very good with all the items that you need, and the local restaurants are good and not expensive. All in all it is a fantastic area to travel around and any small niggles with the villa could not even begin to taint your stay in this great part of the country.

Owner's Response: Hi guys, many thanks for your review. I really did appreciate your honest words even though I think you should have done personally while you were here..Indeed, as far as I can remember about the day of your leaving, last Friday,you were loughing all the time long at the check out...Anyway... I suggest you to read more carefully ads next time: firstly, we never provide toilet paper or soap to guests in arrival..Secondly, we do provide a couple of towels for each guests, but we do not provide large beach towels...the reason is that most of guests in the past used to leave them totally full of sand and tar. Thirdly, as for washing machine, we do provide weekly change of bed linen and towels (in addition to this, all utilities..gas, water, is all inclusive in the price you paid you well know) so this is the rason why we have rightly thought that a washing machine (1,5kg) is enough for small washings. As already said, it is all written in my ad, and all you need is just to have a more carefull look at it. Lastly, patio furniture and all other furnitures inside, walls, etc...we restore all house and garden every year before the beginning of tourist season...we can't do works while our guests are here..don't you think? All I can suggest you is inviting you to come and visit us next year right at the beginning of good season and see all our works in progress... just before all our guests come to stay and live their sea holidays...Thank you again guys and...see you here around...Best regards!!

Fly to Salento - Fine taste for classical music

  • 5 of 5

Some friends told us about their holiday in a special area almost off the beaten tracks in Puglia, Italy, suggesting us the “carribean” sea of Gallipoli because it was a perfect idea for our family bank holidays with two children (9 and 11), who wished to spend most of the day playing and swimming in a turquoise clear sea. Our expectations were totally fulfilled by the efficient directions of our guide, Giusy, who smartly contributed in order to provide a remarkable cultural track to our holiday and to make us feel home away from home in her elegant villa "Salento Sunset" near the beach. By the way, it was such a real unexpected pleasure for us to go to theatre in Southern Salento and to listen to the best known in UK amazing Benjamin Britten music. Even for my children it was an exciting experience watching, in the same background, other children performing the story of Babar, the elephant. Back to London, our friends joined us at Stansted Airport and we drove straight to the beautiful Suffolk coast just for extending our holiday a little more with a short escape to Aldeburgh, the place that inspired Britten’s life and work. This enjoyable overseas adventure happened to us last year but we still think most often of it and maybe we will repeat it some day.
