Located in the historical center of Gagliano del Capo, close to the fascinating rocky coast line, S.M. di Leuca and not far from the sandy beaches between S.M. di Leuca and Gallipoli as well as other sites of interest.
From the main square, through one of the many little roads, one reaches Casa del Palmarancio, a typical salentine house, enclosed within its own beautiful old walls.
A large old wooden door opens up onto the inner courtyard partially shades by and old palm tree and an orange trees, are the presage of the atmosphere and the charm that the house will present us with. The furnished courtyard is the anteroom to the kitchen and the living room both with large glass windows, the guest bathroom, a double master bedroom with en suite bathroom with a connecting single room as well an outdoor staircase which leads us to a terrace above where another master bedroom with an en suite bathroom is to be found.
The warm colors of the stone, the wood color of the furniture and the whites of the fabrics and details, create a peaceful and serene atmosphere, ideal for those who wish to live a relaxing and private holiday without giving up the pleasure of going around the Salento and its sea, of course!
Outdoor areas: equipped courtyard and terraces with outdoor furniture

“I saw Salento and I don't regret it”
Salento: “Doorway to the Orient”, land where in each corner there is an elusive “levantino” (eastern) flavour. Everything is a mystery, freed from the rest of the peninsula. And yet we are – almost -- still in Italy.
Local characters and ambiance are, to say the least, surreal and arriving all the way down here one truly has the feeling of a land without time.
“Welcome to the land of slowness”
… is what I would write in capital letters under “Arrivals” at the Brindisi Airport.
It’s a therapeutic land where whoever is under stress forgets everything and immerses himself in the “Salentitudine” of the place.
Should you ask a Salentine friend to get together the following day, he’ll answer: “Ci ‘ole Diu” which in local dialect means “Inshallah”: you will realize how close we are to the Orient!
A land full of surprises where it is impossible to be bored, each small town centre has its castle, its baroque church, its untouched square as well as its historical centre, and moreover the patron saint holidays with the wonderful decorative lights that illuminate the town as though it were day: one of these celebrations takes place every two days with music groups playing from the large wooden gazebos called “Cassarmoniche”.
A land full of many other surprises, where the hospitality and good food don’t have anything to do with the professionalism of the hosts but with the level of satisfaction that they have serving their guests; and where the basic local ingredients are able to give a strong personality to each dish, a place where even the seaweed perfectly closes a seafaring dish.
Nothing here is perfect, in this land that still doesn’t know the meaning of “cosmopolitan democracy”, but which always conveys a feeling of heartfelt hospitality.
We are undoubtedly touched and fascinated by an innate kindness, by now lost in other places.
It is a truly special place, to be experienced firsthand.
