Villa Gallone is a delightful Mediterranean residence of great charm. Its unique style is a mix of elegance and originality, the result of an extensive effort in restoring and highlighting ancient typical architectural elements that were included in the original structure. These elements were then combined with oriental and contemporary furniture, creating a stunning, yet comfortable, interior.

Situated within the historic center of the laidback hamlet of Specchia Gallone, Villa Gallone is less than 10 km from the seaside resort of Porto Badisco and only a few additional kilometers from the stunning sand beaches of Otranto, the quaint seaside town of Santa Cesarea and the medieval village of Castro.

This fully-renovated home can be divided into 3 units (A, B & C), perfectly located within the garden boundaries so as to provide privacy and tranquillity to individual families or friends.

UNIT A: spectacular double bedroom with a wood ceiling, a double bed with a stonework canopy, a private bathroom/shower and access to the garden.

UNIT B: this is a two-level unit. The ground floor features two apartments, each with its own independent access via the garden. The first apartment includes a huge (approx. 40 m2) master bedroom (B1) with a beautiful barrel-vaulted ceiling, a large living room with two star-vaulted ceilings and a stonework fireplace, a private bathroom/shower with a small patio. The second apartment includes a double bedroom (B2) with a star-vaulted ceiling, a large living room with an independent access via the garden and a private bathroom/shower. The first floor can be reached via an internal or an external staircase, providing access to two additional double bedrooms with wood ceilings, a shared bathroom/shower and a series of large porches, one of which overlooks the garden and others with a view of the old town’s roofs.

UNIT C: a bright, spectacular open-space living area provides a cozy sitting area with a stonework fireplace and a couch, a fully-equipped contemporary kitchen with stainless steel cabinets, and a dining area with a large table seating 10 guests.
Large glass windows open into a patio with a pergola and a table, a masonry washbasin and a BBQ, where meals can be enjoyed while admiring the view of the pool area, with the surrounding lawn and the citrus trees.

The property is situated in the center of Specchia Gallone which, together with Cocumula, is a hamlet of Minervino di Lecce, a small town in the Otranto inland. Specchia Gallone takes its name from the Latin word “Specola”, meaning “look-out”, while “Gallone” was the name of one of its lords. It is a quaint little village just a few kilometres away from the gorgeous town of Otranto with its lovely beaches, its Aragonese castle, its cathedral with the relics of the martyred saints and its historic center, acknowledged as being one of the most beautiful in Italy; in the renowned spa resort town of Santa Cesarea (with its spectacular Moorish and eclectic style villas) where boats, pedal boats and canoes can be rented, and excursions to the grottoes or scuba diving lessons can be booked. A few minutes’ drive will take you to the stunning coves of Acquaviva and Porto Badisco, where swimming in crystal clear waters is an experience not to be missed. Villa Gallone is a 70-minute drive to the Brindisi airport and 35 minutes to the town of Lecce, renowned for its Baroque architecture.
