Muro Leccese, Puglia, Italy
A Pair of 16th-Century Palazzi Transport You Back In Time

An oasis of peace and refinement, these villas for rent in Puglia transport you back in time into a hidden and unexpected inner world just outside of the main square in the medieval village of Muro Leccese. 

Dating back to the 16th century, the compound of two historic palazzi were constructed by the Apulian aristocracy at the time, and inhabited for centuries by generations of the same families.

Lying abandoned for years, the restorations have thoughtfully updated the villas with modern comforts and understated style.

All of their graceful features have been preserved and restored, with each room revealing its regal past combined with a seamless integration of modern amenities and a stylish collection of contemporary and vintage furnishings, decor and fine art.

Occupying almost the entire length of a beautiful town square, the villas are an indelible part of the village's history and offers the opportunity to immerse yourself into Salento's traditions and local culture. 

The gardens have lovely spots for al fresco dining and the swimming pool is located on an upper level of the garden with a beautiful view on the old town.

 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, cable TV, stereo system, kitchen and bath essentials, laundry facilities, baby bed and high chair on request.

 

AROUND

With history dating back to the Greek Empire, the small town of Muro Leccese is strategically located for access to some of Puglia’s most beautiful and fascinating sights. The town is designed around quaint squares with beautiful Baroque architecture and a slow village vibe, and the villa is a short walk to some of the town’s best restaurants and shops.

The stunning Baroque city of Lecce, known as the Florence of the South, lies thirty  minutes to the north and the lovely UNESCO fortified port town of Otranto is just fifteen minutes east. 

Some of the region’s best beaches along the Adriatic including Le Cesine and Nature Reserve, Baia dei Turchi, Torre Del Orso Santa Andrea and Alimini as well as those of the Ionian coast like the small Santa Maria al Bagno village are within a short drive. 

An hour south are the luxurious seaside resorts of Leuca and Santa Cesarea Terme.
