Guests often search for this popular amenity
Exclusive accommodation and spectacular views can be found at this beautiful penthouse in Gallipoli's historic centre. Recently renovated, it maintains many traditional Salento design features but offers all modern amenities. If you're looking for a tranquil, family-friendly place that combines stunning scenery and well-preserved historical buildings, Gallipoli has it all.

The space
This beautiful 100 m² apartment in the historic centre is situated on the 2nd floor (no elevator) of an 18th Century building. The light, spacious rooms all have exquisite vaulted or starred ceilings along with resin flooring into which old Salento cement tiles are embedded. The apartment offers every kind of comfort like air conditioning in all rooms and Wi-Fi. It is equipped with a heating system and working fireplace; therefore you can rent it even in the coldest months, when old Gallipoli is very charming.

The main living/kitchen area is open-plan, with the sofa and dining table grouped around the fireplace creating a cosy atmosphere. The kitchen is fully equipped: fridge, freezer, hob, electric oven, dishwasher, Nespresso coffee machine, toaster, kettle, blender and various cooking equipment.

There are 3 beautifully decorated bedrooms and 2 modern bathrooms. The master bedroom has a plush double bed, fireplace, walk in shower and sink, with a WC in a separate room. The second bedroom has wide bunk beds (120 cm each) that are sure to be a hit with younger family members, while the third has a comfortable double sofa bed. The last two bedrooms have a dedicated bathroom with a large walk in shower. A cot for babies under 2 years can be provided on request as well as all the necessary for children of all ages.

The split-level full-width rooftop terrace is what makes this apartment truly exceptional. The panoramic views from here will take your breath away, creating an unforgettable holiday experience. The terrace is equipped with a gazebo-covered kitchen area (sink, fridge, stove, a second dishwasher, Weber gas BBQ, crockery and pots for cooking and eating directly on the terrace), a table for 8 people, a stunning covered seating area, plus a solarium with sunbeds and a large outdoor shower. Take in breathtaking panoramic views of the sea and the island of Gallipoli by day, then relax with a drink by sunset. Dreamy!

There are 3 flights of stairs to reach the apartment with handrail and another one, a bit steeper, to reach the terrace.
During the summer, you can park at the harbour, a few 100 meters away. Car access and parking is restricted in the historical center during the summer season.

Where you’ll be

Gallipoli, Puglia, Italy

The exquisite Old Town of Gallipoli is a true undiscovered gem, inhabited by friendly, welcoming people.
Right below the apartment there are some of the best fish restaurants in town, along with more informal trattorias. Don't miss the delicious fresh fruit and vegetables with their unique flavours typical of the area. Visit the fish market in the heart of the historical centre in the early morning, or go directly to the port when the boats return to get the catch of the day. In the evenings, tour the picturesque hinterland villages.
The colder months are the perfect time to explore Gallipoli's ancient charm. It retains its lively atmosphere throughout the seasons, and is particularly vibrant around Christmas time and New Year when there are amazing pyrotechnic displays to be seen! Over the Easter period, evocative and fascinating processions take place, winding their way through the narrow alleys of the very centre of the town.

There are a number of beaches reachable by bicycle, scooter or car. A few metres from the apartment is Purità beach. In the Old Town there is an exclusive location with a terrace on the rocks and easy access to the sea. On the south coast there are Lido San Giovanni and Baia Verde. We recommend exploring further to the beaches at Punta Proscuitto, Torre Lapillo, Porto Cesareo, the famous Maldives of Salento, and Torre San Giovanni (Ugento).
We are happy to provide more information on sight-seeing, eating, shopping and beaches in the area.

I was born in Bologna but since many years I live in Milan with my husband and our three kids. I worked for many years in marketing. Since some time, I have decided to take what I have built over the years, and to put it into a project of my own. This is how @lecasedivalentina was born. These kinds of decisions are often the result of a meeting that somehow changed our lives. I am no exception. I met a place. Puglia. A land that embraces you, and adopts you. Where history and traditions are never forgotten. Where people with hands ruined by work, look at you, smiling. Where the “painted blue” of the sea and the sky play with the sun and with the silver green of olive trees. I invite you to fall in love with my Puglia.
