A luxuriously appointed villa with stunning grounds and pool.

Villa Specchia is one of the most desirable homes in the Salento peninsula. Opulent interiors, extensive manicured gardens, a glorious pool and daily service combine to create an exclusive privileged atmosphere. Should you ever wish to leave the considerable comfort of your surroundings, however, a gentle stroll will take you to the bars and restaurants of the charming town from which the villa takes its name.

"A++ on the whole experience and the fabulous Villa Specchia." Ebaa Alawaji, USA, July 2014

Villa Specchia in the press:
City AM, 9th September 2012 >>

 


Inside: accommodation at Villa Specchia is all on one floor with the exception of one of the bedrooms. The entrance leads to a very large sitting room with three separate sitting areas. To the right, the dining room leads through to a wonderful covered terrace with views of the garden and the pool. On the opposite side of the living area are two double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms (one with Jacuzzi bath and shower attachment, one with tub and shower attachment). Near the front door is a double/twin bedroom with en-suite shower room and the staircase leading to a first floor with another double/twin bedroom, also with en-suite shower room. Beyond the living room is the large kitchen, the laundry room and the fifth bedroom, a double with en-suite shower room. The last bedroom, number six, is a double (which may be used as a twin thanks to the presence of a sofa bed), situated across the courtyard from the kitchen and is only accessed externally. It has an en-suite shower room. The interiors are all richly decorated with impeccable taste.

Outside: the villa is situated in 25 Hectares (62 Acres) of private walled gardens, and is perfectly secure and peaceful. Cars are left in secure parking inside remote controlled gates. Guests will be sure to spend much of their time between the wonderful covered and furnished patio and the green lawns surrounding the large pool. The pool furnishings are naturally of the highest quality. The internal courtyard of the Masseria traps the sun beautifully on a spring morning and the extensive gardens invite leisurely strolls, or simply long reading sessions in the shade of a tree.

Think About

The double bedroom accessed from the courtyard also has two divans which may become single beds on request (and for a small extra charge) bringing the total occupancy up to 14.

Please note that there is no real shallow end in Villa Specchia's pool, whose minimum depth is 1.6m

An extremely authentic and quality Puglian experience.



Exploring the local Area

Undoubtedly a superb feature of Villa Specchia is its proximity on foot to the centre of the charming village of Specchia from which the villa takes its name. The baroque centre of Specchia has been largely restored to a very high level, and has attracted a good selection bars and restaurants serving high quality Puglian fare.

Specchia is on an elevated knoll dominating the rolling Salento countryside. The nearest beaches around Ugento and Pescoluse on the Ionian coast are within about 25 minutes drive, as are the charming villages of Leuca, Tricase and Castro Marina. Lovers of culture will not want to miss a visit to the stunning baroque jewel of Lecce, the dramatic walled island of Gallipoli, or the defensive city of Otranto, all of which are within very comfortable "day-trip" distance.

Micah Hurt, United Kingdom, 18 April 2015
"We just felt like the whole experience was top quality from start to finish. We would definitely book through The Thinking Traveller again... The cook and maid were fantastic, absolutely wonderful and helped us a great deal around the villa without us even asking... We truly loved everything and did not want to come home."

Ebaa Alawaji, United States of America, 9 July 2014
