Under the Salento sun...

The Villa is located in a unique position 15 miles north of Lecce, the jewel of the Salento region. Situated on a ridge overlooking miles of olive groves and vineyards, it was the country residence of a noble family from Lecce built in the early 1800’s with its own chapel and gardens. We purchased it from a retired priest who had turned the house and grounds into a boy scout camp, filling the house with bunk beds and transforming part of the lawns into a soccer field. After a two year renovation project, the villa has been fully restored and partly reimagined to become a 6 bedroom, 6 bathroom vacation home. The gardens have been rejuvenated and expanded. The original orange garden has been rebuilt and returned to its former glory. We have also added a beautiful infinity pool that takes full advantage of the magnificent views of the surrounding area. Tenuta dell’Alto is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the country life of the Mezzogiorno as well as to explore the beauty of Puglia, and especially the rich and vibrant nearby Salento region. Our special concierge services and our attention to every detail will make a vacation in our home a very special treat to any family or group of friends. Let us spoil you .... Puglia style!
