All was fine. The villa is beautifull : we like so much the Design inside and the architecture outside. The Region is Amazing. We love the architecture with the White and the pastel coloured squrarred Houses villages. The géographic Position is perfect to discover the salento Region. The Village Giurdignano where the Villa is Situated is ideal : very quiet But near to a nice town Otranto. You have all your need : an artisanal bakery, fish Shop, fruit & vegetables itinerant Shop and a supermarket. The Swimmingpool is a dream. The rooms are very Nice and big enough with all Equipments you need. In the evening you can eat outside on the Terrasse and it’s great.

The house was more than spacious enough for two families (4 adults and 5 kids), with a beautiful garden with outdoor dining table, grill, and pool. The location is superb - quaint little village, a world away from August tourist hordes, and yet close enough to everything we wanted to visit during our week in the area. Hosts are equally superb - easy to communicate with and responsive.

My husband and I stayed as part of a larger group in this gorgeous newly renovated 16th C palazzo in the charming Puglian town of Muro Leccese. It is just off the central town square and hidden away behind closed door is a paradise of walled gardens and tempting pools. The renovation has been done with wonderful taste and comfort – strong water pressure in the showers, effective air conditioning, comfortable beds and even a commercial icemaker! The house was well cleaned and dealing with the owner was a pleasure. There was easy safe parking just opposite the main entrance. We spent days by the pool and evenings outside under the stars. Mid morning we often visited charming Caffe Miron in the nearby Piazza del Popolo for coffee and their special local pastries. Sometimes we returned in the early evening for an aperitivo - on offer is an incredible selection of hot and cold canapes to go with drinks. Cooking was easy after we were directed to Valentino Pedio Grocers a short walk away in via Salentina. Everything you could want including the freshest fruit and vegetables, bread, some delicious homemade prepared dishes and the best salumi and cheese. The... Read more

The best chocolates and cakes are a short drive away at Maglio in Maglie. I have never tasted anything as delicious as the chocolate covered fruit. Ever. I even brought some back to London to remind us of our wonderful holiday. I can’t begin to list all the wonderful excursions we went on and restaurants we visited but you will be able to choose yourself from the information left for you in the villa. My husband found it the perfect place to cycle. My favourite was hanging out at La Dolce Riva beach club in Otranto. Great people watching, lovely lunch and an easy place to swim in the sea. We can’t wait to return!

We were two families with grown up children - together 10 people. We stayed one week at Ferramosca and were totally under the spell … The province of Lecce is known for its baroque monuments and at times it can all become a bit too much … Muro Leccese however is tempered, its delicate baroque is all concentrated on the central square … Already there the spell begins … But then you enter Ferramosca, through a proud steel gateway, and you are overwhelmed by another enchantment … For these blessed moments you will live in a house full of light, joy and delight… Pure poetry also ... It is clear that it has been meant this way by the most charming owners. If you will have to forget about standard bathrooms, you will enjoy the splendid swimming pool, the generous garden and the most convivial outdoors. There is something indefinable about the house. Maybe it is because of the many different levels and shapes, the massiveness of its seemingly rough though so calcareous and soft warm stones … Seemingly contradictory, nature and art rule together in this environment … you just have to surrender.

Cette maison est exceptionnelle, très spacieuse,elle accueille facilement 10 personnes. Très beau couloir de natation Les chambres sont spacieuses. Nous avons adoré utiliser la grande cuisine. Très bien située dans le charmant village de Muro Leccese , la demeure est à proximité de tous les commerces Nous avons passé une semaine idyllique. Notre seul regret , devoir partir.

Alessandro's and Priscilla’s house in Muro Leccese is simply stunning. The property is historic and retains the district feel of the region, but it is finished with tasteful modern details. Our large group was housed comfortably in the height of summer. The pool is spectacular. If you want to experience authentic southern Italy with all conveniences located nearby, this is an excellent choice. The town of Muro Leccese is quaint but has all of the shops you need (salumeria, wine store etc) to provide for a large group. Additionally, our group hired Maria and Valentina as chefs for 5 nights and we were very happy! The food was authentic southern Italian and very delicious. Luigi was a very responsive and helpful contact for the host. We want to go to this property again!
