A seductive, stylish villa with spectacular sea views on the southernmost tip of Puglia.

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.

"I had a time of a lifetime, so place a value on that." James Snow, UK, August 2015

Inside: accommodation at Villa Blanca is spread over the main house and a garden dependence. On entering the main villa, one's first impression 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 double bedrooms (two with en-suite shower rooms, the other with an adjacent bathroom with voluptuous sunken bath with shower attachment).

Accommodation at Villa Blanca is completed by the garden dependance, which houses a double and a double/twin bedroom with en-suite shower rooms accessed from the terraces near the main outdoor dining area. These bedrooms are less luxurious than those in the main house but comfortably furnished and welcoming.

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!

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.

Villa Blanca, luxury villa with pool in Puglia, Italy

James Snow, United Kingdom, 29 August 2015
"There is no doubt that Villa Blanca is expensive, but I had a time of a lifetime, so place a value on that."

Felicity Blunt, United Kingdom, 16 August 2014
"What did we most enjoy about visiting Puglia? The villa! We had the holiday of a lifetime, the kids are already clamouring to go back... The housekeeper was incredible. She's sweet, unobtrusive and incredibly hard working. The cook was superb."

Fabienne Napoli, Switzerland, 2 August 2014
"We considered everything excellent: the Villa, the housekeeper, ...absolutely wonderful!"
