Villa Specchia is one of the most desirable homes in the Salento peninsula.

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.

"The villa was exactly as billed - beautiful... we loved our stay... It was an overall experience that was lovely. I especially enjoyed the village and the ability to walk into the center and get whatever we needed." Malcolm McAuley, USA, July 2013

About the Property


Inside: accommodation 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). Near the front door is another double en-suite room and the staircase leading to a first floor with a fourth en-suite double bedroom. Beyond the living room is the kitchen, the laundry room and the fifth en-suite double bedroom. The house-boy lives in a room down the corridor off the kitchen. 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

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 Peculose 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.
