Our villa of 7500 s.f. is situated in 25 Hectares (62 Acres) of private walled gardens, and is perfectly secure and peaceful. Cars are left either 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 estensive gardens invite leisurely strolls, or simply long reading sessions in the shade of a tree. Undoubtedly a superb feature of Villa Specchia is its proximity on foot the 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 20 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.
