Historic house in Otranto

Castle -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Otranto, Province of Lecce, Puglia
As part of a group of typical Salento houses, this dwelling – renovated by a famous local architect in 2004 – is reachable through the picturesque narrow streets of the historic centre of Otranto, in a peaceful pedestrian area.

About the neighbourhood
Otranto is a small seaside town in the extreme eastern point of Italy. Due to its ideal geographical position, Otranto has always been the place where different civilisations, cultures and traditions have come into contact. If you go walking in its historic centre, you can easily discover its ancient origins by admiring its Messapian, Greek and Roman architectural testimonies.

Far from the noisy and polluted industrial areas of Italy, nowadays Otranto keeps on looking East. This heavenly place, where it seems time has stood still, shows the traces of an ancient history on both its land and its extraordinary people's faces. Don't give up the pleasure of enjoying the unique atmosphere of this enchanting town!

Otranto, a town rich in waters, where even the majestic walls which forti...
