Casa Gelsi is a gorgeous 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 lies right beside the beach and is the ideal place for a carefree summer holiday. The house has been completely renovated and stylishly furnished with colorful accents and pieces of art, which together with the Moroccan decorations, form an charming whole.
The walled garden offers privacy and has marvelous spaces to unwind or play like on the lawn in the shade of the large wild mulberry tree (Il Gelso). On the attractively decorated and covered veranda, you stay cool on hot days, while at the back of the house you can dine under the vines (from which you can pick the grapes in autumn). The staircase at the side of the house leads to the roof terrace, the perfect spot to enjoy a delicious breakfast, a siesta, and breathtaking sunsets accompanied by a warm breeze. In between these moments of relaxation, walk to the fine sandy beach where the children will find hours of enjoyment in the shallow water.
Casa Gelsi is also very conveniently located for sightseeing trips in the area. The baroque town of Lecce is only a 20-minute drive away. Also, you can explore the Valle d'Itria with its famous Trulli. Drive the coastal road south to the seaside resort of Otranto or explore the quiet villages inland. Casa Gelsi has all the ingredients for a holiday in a summery ambiance.
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!
