Casa Gelsi | Stylishly designed holiday home at 10 meters from the beach

White, bright, and airy with colorful and Moroccan accents

Guest1 - 6 Guests Bedroom3 Bedrooms Bathroom 1 Bathroom

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.

Location Casa Gelsi

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. 

More tips for day trips: 

  • Explore the baroque city of Lecce (12 kilometers). The tremendous artistic treasure of this charming city is its architecture; admire the facades and doors of the churches and palaces that are covered with extravagant decorations. Besides, you will find quaint shops, local products, and a wide choice of restaurants; perfect for those days you don’t feel like cooking at home.
  • Discover "Bosco e Paludi di Rauccio" Nature Park, a collection of forests, lakes, and marshes that stretch along the coast between Brindisi and Lecce. The park has several cycling and hiking trails, and after all these efforts you can relax on the beach Spiaggiabella (in the park). A beautiful place for a day out!
  • Visit the spa town of Santa Cesarea Terme (70 km), not only can you enjoy the hot springs, but also beautiful Moorish architecture, a lively center, and, of course, the sea.
  • Otranto (50 minutes away) is a small coastal town with a colorful and mixed history that is still visible in the streets. For culture, visit the cathedral and the imposing castle, stroll the charming streets, and enjoy the sun on the beach in the afternoon.
  • Drive to the town of Castro (65 km) and take the boat to the fascinating Grotto Zinzulusa. This spectacular cave resembles a rocky mouth that opens into the sea. In the maze of colorful stalactites and stalagmites, you can take a guided tour and learn all about this unique geological phenomenon. You can also swim and snorkel outside the cave in the transparent water.

Casa Antonetta is about 45 minutes away from Brindisi Airport and 2 hours from Bari Airport.

Casa Gelsi is a very nice and spacious house. Tastefully decorated and the surrounding garden is well maintained. The house exudes a real holiday atmosphere. There are several seating areas outside, with lots of shade. The house had many facilities. The house is right on the sea (pebble) and from the roof terrace you have a very nice view. The welcome was good and during our stay we could easily ask questions to the manager if needed. He also provided us with a lot of information about the area and eateries. Lecce is around the corner and the location is also a great base for the rest of Salento and its beautiful coast. Also to drive towards Gallipolli, for example. A number of beautiful sandy beaches can also be found in the immediate vicinity. The villages themselves near Casa Gelsi are not worth mentioning. All in all we had a very pleasant stay there.
