Beautiful ancient home, dated 1795, in Ortelle, a small and charming town in Salento which is only 4 km from the Adriatic
coast. Castro and Andrano are 2 lovely sea villages close to Ortelle.

The house measures 160 sqm and is composed of 3 double bedrooms with star-vaulted ceilings, 2 bathrooms, a living room, an
ample, completely fitted kitchen and a further room currently used as a studio. The house has 2 courtyards from which
to reach large roof terraces (ca. 100 sqm) by way of external staircases. The roof terraces feature a BBQ, a sink, a table and
chairs for "al fesco" dining, stone benches with comfortable removable cushions and sunbeds.
One of the courtyards has an external shower. The house has central heating, therefore it can also be used during the
winter months, and 5 fireplaces as old as the dwelling. In the basement there are 3 rooms used as a storage for a total of 20 sqm,
all with external access.

Ortelle is home to several festivals attracting people from all over Puglia, Italy and not only: the "Sagra della Pirilla"
in August, the festival of San Giorgio, Patron Saint of Ortelle, held at the end of April and the "Fiera di San Vito",
a festivity which goes back for centuries, takes place late October.

The town of Ortelle is part and parcel of the Natural Park including/encompassing the area that goes from Otranto to Santa Maria di Leuca
and the Tricase Wood. This area was established by the Puglia regional authorities to safeguard the Eastern part of Salento,
rich with cultural, architectural and landscape heritage.
