Salento exclusive seafront villa – Positioned a few steps away from a rocky shore on the Adriatic sea, just a short walk from Castro Marina’s town centre, its shops, restaurants and beautiful seafront promenade, Le Arcate is a typical Apulian holiday villa affording spectacular sea views; an ideal setting to enjoy Italy’s slow pace of life. A series of large terraces overlooking this rocky stretch of coast provide the ideal outdoor living space to unwind, dine al fresco or just soak up the inspiring scenery all around. A long archway creating a very Mediterranean look is the architectural hallmark of this property, hence its name. Built in the Seventies and modernised in more recent years, Le Arcate is simply furnished with traditional Italian furniture and boasts lovely vaulted ceilings and cool ceramic floors. Enclosed by the typical Apulian dry-stone walls is the lovely Mediterranean garden featuring a profusion of agaves, palm trees and colourful bougainvillea. Among them is a charming guest cottage, with its own terrace and lawn, ideal for families with children. The location of this villa is simply perfect; within a mile or so you have Castro Marina, which is a lively seaside resort with an array of restaurants, shops, an attractive hilltop old town featuring an ancient castle and a Romanesque cathedral. Just a few minutes’ drive from Le Arcate is also Puglia’s most famous sea cave; so called for its ragged stalactites and stalagmites, Grotta Zinzulusa offers visitors a mesmerizing spectacle of shimmering lights and colours among the rock pools where you can even swim! Dramatic cliffs, hidden coves and sandy beaches can be found all along this rugged stretch of Adriatic coast. Further north, within half-an-hour's drive along the scenic coastal route is Otranto, a charming historic port town. If you happen to visit during the summer months, you will enjoy the festive lights, the gastronomic delicacies and the lively atmosphere so typical of Salento.
