Villa
Serene Villa Ilaria is nestled in the heart of Puglia's incredibly fertile Val di Cupa, a valley once referred to as the Tivoli Gardens of Lecce and now known as the Florence of the South. Embedded in the wonderful aromatic foliage of the Pugliese countryside, Villa Ilaria is 8 mins from the exquisite historical Baroque City of Lecce and a mere 20 minutes from the sandy beaches along the pristine waters of the Adriatic and Ionian Seas. The villa itself, is a bespoke home, using local finite stone and marble from historical quarries throughout. With its impressive 16th Century vaulted ceilings, walls in Pietra Leccese, white stone floors from a family quarry in Ostuni and large fireplace in the central drawing room, Villa Ilaria is a wonderful retreat for groups of Friends, Family and Lover...Serene Villa Ilaria is nestled in the heart of Puglia's incredibly fertile Val di Cupa, a valley once referred to as the Tivoli Gardens of Lecce and now known as the Florence of the South.

House Rules
Pets Allowed: Yes

Smoking allowed outside; pets allowed outside. Additional cleaning costs for a full house and for guests's pets due to future guests with animal allergies. Though we have a strict Cancellation policy - we are willing to refund deposits based on compassionate reasons, though we do ask guests to consider our position if peak season bookings are cancelled, as this results in much needed loss of earnings for our family and that is why July -Aug cancellations are not refundable.

About the neighbourhood
So many types of beaches to choose from, beautiful walking trails, scenic cycling routes and stunning spots for painting enthusiasts. There are different markets on at different times of the week, month and for specific items (antiques, cheese and wine, carpets & tapestries etc) in neighbouring towns. Endless restaurants, bars, cafés, Italian street markets and typically Italian chic and stylish shopping.
Getting around
Very easy to rent a car directly from Brindisi Casale Airport or in almost all nearby villages. However, to avoid disappointment of insufficient supply in the villages, safest is at the airport - the rental office is attached to the airport terminal and is a 2 minutes walk from arrivals. You can also hire bicycles and motorcycles from Lecce itself.
