Villa Blanca is one of the most desirable luxury coastal villas available for rent in the Salento! Everything, from the fittings and the furniture, to the living spaces indoors and out, to the superb pool and the mesmerising views, is of a very high quality. If that were not enough, glorious sandy beaches, excellent fish restaurants and the exclusive seaside resort of Santa Maria di Leuca are just a stone’s throw away.

“Exceeded our expectations. Excellent caretaker in Vittoria. Beautiful place... Wonderful family gathering in beautiful place managed by superb organisation." Virginia Windibank, UK, June 2013

About the Property

Inside: one's first impression of the interior is of calm luminosity, effortless elegance and unostentatious quality. The bright living areas extend over two large interconnecting spaces: a sitting room with fireplace and TV, and a drawing room. Both feature a mixture of antique furnishings, sumptuously comfortable sofas and some splendid designer light fittings. French windows lead out onto the shaded terraces overlooking the pool and the sea. The dining room, extending from the living areas, leads to a study and the top-quality modern semi-professional kitchen. The main sleeping quarters comprise three delightfully proportioned bedrooms (two with en-suite bathrooms, the other with an adjacent bathroom). Accommodation at Villa Blanca is completed by two further double en-suite bedrooms accessed from the terraces near the main outdoor dining area.

Outside: Villa Blanca stands in its own 4-hectare (10 acres) park, in which there are 2 other houses belonging to the same owner. Fully-furnished shady terraces flank the villa, providing guests with a dreamy Mediterranean outdoor living experience. The pool area is superb, offering uninterrupted views of Leuca and the sea, while the large, panoramic infinity pool incorporates a Jacuzzi corner. The beautifully tended gardens give way to the surrounding parkland, cooling pine trees and a green backdrop that sets the villa off perfectly!

Think About

The villa is located about 2km above Santa Maria di Leuca. You can walk into town and to the beach, though there is quite a steep climb back and sections of the road are without pavement.

The Area

Exploring the local Area

Leuca is at the southernmost tip of the Salento peninsular, where the Ionian and Adriatic seas meet. It has long been a magnet for the wealthy classes of Puglia, who came to build lavish seaside homes here in the early 20th century. The legacy of this is a superb collection of Liberty style buildings and a large marina that form a very pleasant backdrop for the visitor today.

There are many fabulous sandy beaches, coves and grottos to explore within a few miles drive of Leuca. These can be even better visited from the water, and it is easy to arrange boat or yacht rentals in the marina.

Within easy driving distance is delightful Baroque Lecce, the fortified island town of Gallipoli and lovely Otranto.

"Exceeded our expectations. Excellent caretaker in Vittoria. Beautiful place... Wonderful family gathering in beautiful place managed by superb organisation."

Donna Lutton, United States of America, 25 May 2013
"We loved Villa Blanca - it was everything it was portrayed to be, beautifully appointed, maintained & equipped. Vittoria could not have been more accommodating - she was so helpful, kind and pleasant and kept the house immaculate... We could not have been more pleased with our entire Think Puglia experience - from the initial phone call for the enquiry to our drop off at Brindisi airport. We would definitely book again with your organization for any house rentals in southern Italy or whatever regions you represent. The most professional travel company we have ever dealt with."

Paul Savidge, United States of America, 4 August 2012
"Outstanding in all respects. A beautiful villa with all modern conveniences and great style. Our family vacation was perhaps the best we have ever had. Phenomenal pool and views of sea and Leuca. Puglia is a beautiful, rural region with friendly people, great food and charming towns. Loved it all."
