Casa Gelsi is a beautiful beach house in an undiscovered part of Puglia, just 12 kilometers from the beautiful city of Lecce. This bright holiday home for 4-6 people is located directly on a local beach, and is the ideal place for true beach-loving families. The house has been completely renovated and stylishly decorated with colorful accents and art pieces, which together with the Moroccan decorations form an attractive whole.
The walled garden offers privacy and has wonderful spaces to relax or play, such as on the lawn in the shade of a large wild mulberry tree (Il Gelso). On the nicely decorated covered porch you can enjoy the coolness on hot days, while you dine at the back of the house under the vines (of which you can pick the grapes in the autumn). The stairs on the side of the house take you to the roof terrace; an ideal place to enjoy a delicious breakfast, a siesta and in the evening the sunset accompanied by a warm breeze. In between, walk to the fine sandy beach where the children will enjoy themselves for hours in the shallow water.
Casa Gelsi is ideally located to explore the authentic Salento region, the baroque pearl of Lecce is only a 20-minute drive away, while the coastal road to the south takes you directly to the seaside town of Otranto. Discover the quiet inland villages or the Valle d'Itria with its famous trulli a little further. Casa Gelsi therefore has all the ingredients for a holiday in a summer atmosphere.
All accommodations in our unique collection meet our high standards in quality, comfort, style and setting. We visit every place, meet the owners and explore the area, so we are sure that you will have a great holiday here!

Casa Gelsi is a detached holiday home at only a few meters from the sandy beach of the seaside resort of Torre Chianca. The beach is mainly visited by local families and has no facilities. So bring your beach mats, buckets, and scoops to simply enjoy the sun, the sand, and the calm water. In Torre Chianca you will find not only a public beach but also private beaches - such as Lido Kalu, Maluha Bay, and L'Approdo - where you can rent sun loungers and umbrellas during the high season.
A short walk from Casa Gelsi you will find a bar. For daily amenities, you can reach the village of Frigole within 10 minutes. It has an excellent cafe for coffee and breakfast, a good bakery, butcher, fresh fruit and vegetables, and a mini market for essential items. For the evening, there are several good fish restaurants and a pizzeria with a traditional pizza oven!
There is also a cozy restaurant on the beach of Lido Kalu - a 15-minute walk from the house along the beach - where you can also have a cup of coffee and a sandwich.
