The Space

"LA CARCARA" HOUSE and surroundings, just outside the village of Corsano, is situated in full country side, about 200m above the coast of Ionio sea in Salento.
In the property there are two houses, near one to each other but independent, composed of 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and a kitchen/living room. In front a shady veranda where to enjoy your meals and relax.
One house is generally occupied by one sister (a couple with a dog). The care of privacy is a priority for us.

Guest Access

"La Carcara" is the best place to enjoy relaxing thanks to its silent and sheltered position. It's also a good location to visit many beautiful cities such as Santa Maria di Leuca (10 km), Castro, Gallipoli, Otranto, Lecce.

Interaction with Guests

so we can arrange meeting in the village of Corsano and show you the way to the house (it is not easy to find it the very first time). We will be at your disposal for any information and help you may require. We like to know new persons and we will enjoy sharing some time together but only if you want it as your need of privacy and quiet is a priority for us.

Getting Around

IF YOU LOVE wild nature you can enjoy bathing from gentle cliffs which are close to the house, whereas if you prefer sand, the beach is more or less 10 km away. You can reach the cliffs by car, but also walking along the ancient paths, left by the local country men, called "tratturi".
YOU CAN EASILY REACH the village of Corsano by car, bicycle or on foot. There you can find all facilities; a local market takes place on friday morning. "La Carcara" also offers the chance to taste the organic oil produced by Vincenzo (just ask him).

Other Things to Note

DURING THE SUMMER you can also choose many different kinds of amusement; local fairs where you can get to know and taste typical products attract tourists from all the world. A great new phenomenon which comes from local tradition is "La Notte della Taranta". A festival where people from all over the world meet for concerts that bring also big contemporary musicians.
It is also a very nice contest to practice sport and outdoor activities like walking, running, cycling, swimming ... Ask Milena if you like climbing and trekking.

ciao mi chiamo Loredana e sono un'organizzatore teatrale di mestiere. Questo mi porta ad essere in contatto con moltissime persone e a vedere molti spettacoli. Mi piace molto viaggiare, ma se sono in città, amo andare al cinema, passeggiare al parco sotto casa con il mio cane, uscire con gli amici per un drink e un'ottima pizza. Chi vorrà prenotare da me si assicurerà un ottimo soggiorno milanese, anche grazie alla posizione felice della casa in una zona molto comoda e al contempo tranquilla e vivace. A presto.
