VILLA IRIDE 10+2

Puglia - Lecce - CASARANO

Description:

PRIVATE STRUCTURE (lease only). Villa Iride is an independent property located between the towns of Casarano and Melissano, with a good connection to the state road that leads to the most renowned seaside resorts in the province and also to places with enchanting historic centres where you can admire old buildings and works of timeless charm. Privacy and relaxation are guaranteed by the location of the property and by its large outdoor areas which are for the exclusive use of the guests: ideal, both in the solarium area and around the beautiful turquoise swimming pool, for relaxing in the open air and enjoying a cool drink or a good book whilst sitting comfortably in the shade of the adjacent portico. The lawn surrounding the solarium, together with the ornamental plants framed by architectonic elements in local stone, creates this enchanting atmosphere that Villa Iride reserves for its guests, both outdoors and indoors in the large, brightly-lit rooms.

Interior:

The large, brightly-lit interior of Villa Iride is spread over 2 floors. On the ground floor, embellished by wooden parquet flooring and architectonic glass elements, is an open-plan area with brightly-lit windows facing the outdoor areas, and composed of an elegant and comfortable sitting room with TV area and a dining area. On the same floor is the large, welcoming kitchen followed by a bathroom with shower and the laundry room. The corridor leads to the sleeping area with four bedrooms, two double, both with en-suite bathroom with shower, and two single sharing a bathroom with shower. A large, elegant wooden staircase, with balustrades and transparent glass elements, leads down to the basement where a hallway, furnished with a sofa bed, leads to a big open-plan area with large sliding windows facing the surrounding outdoor area. In this large, brightly-lit space is an elegant sitting room with TV area and a large, bright kitchen with dining area. On the same floor are also two bedrooms, one double, with en-suite bathroom with tub and shower head, and another double with a 1,40 m wide bed with adjacent bathroom with shower. Also on this floor is a mini gym equipped with multi-purpose equipment, a sauna, a whirlpool tub and a bathroom with shower and tub. All the bedrooms have air conditioning and mosquito nets.

Park:

The property extends for about 20,000 m and the park, enclosed partly with stone walls and partly with fencing, contains tall trees, some decorative and some providing shade, and numerous hedges that delimit the perimeter of the house and the large, level solarium area. The various shades of green, together with the beautiful floral colours that adorn various areas of the park, especially in spring, create a harmonious union with the architectonic elements in local stone that are present here and there and act as a frame for the beautiful turquoise-coloured swimming pool, inviting guests to enjoy a relaxing stay with maximum privacy. The villa is also furnished with a large paved external dining area with table, chairs, stone barbecue and external living. Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.

Swimming Pool:

The splendid swimming pool of Villa Iride lies at the back of the house and is the absolute protagonist of the park, with its location guaranteeing guests the highest level of privacy. MeasurIng 17,5 x 5,5 m with the depth varying from 1,2 to 3 m, it is lined in PVC and has chlorine purification; access to the water is via Roman steps on the side towards the portico and via a steel ladder on the opposite side. Near the pool there is also a cold-water outdoor shower. Comfortable deck chairs and sunbeds are set out next to the white wooden corner portico, the perfect spot for enjoying a cool drink or a good book in absolute tranquillity while taking a break from soaking in the enchanting swimming pool which, for dimension and colour, guarantees guests comfort and relaxation. The surrounding lawn blends in with the background of the walls in local stone and the adjoining park, creating a pleasant atmosphere both during the day and in the evening, when the lighting enhances the scenery, providing guests with unforgettable moments.

Location and distances


The town of Casarano is located in south-western Salento, 45 km from Lecce, the provincial capital, and 15 km from the Ionian coast. Its location allows you to easily reach the various interesting localities in the province of Lecce and, in particular, the renowned seaside towns of Gallipoli and Santa Maria di Leuca, and the towns of Maglie, Nardò and Galatina up to the enchanting town of Lecce, all reachable through the state road. The town of Casarano offers its visitors various sites of historical interest, above all the Crypt of the Crucifix, a natural hypogeum transformed into a place of worship by the Byzantines in the 11th century and in the vicinity of which are still present the ruins of the old monastery that belonged first to the Basilian monks and, successively, to the Olivetans, which represents an important prehistoric, historic and naturalistic site; the Mother Church, built in typical Lecce baroque-style in the early 18th century, is dedicated to Maria Santissima Annunziata. Its elegant façade is characterised by a balustrade and by the presence of three niches, with the first, central and above the portal, containing the statue of Saint John the Almoner, while the other two, at the sides, contain the statues of Saints Peter and Paul. Particularly felt is the cult of the town's patron saints: Saint John the Almoner (mentioned above) and the Madonna della Campana to whom the church standing on a 160 metre - high hill is dedicated and from where you have a view of the whole town and the surrounding areas. Other monuments include the Clock Tower and the Sedile located in the characteristic Piazza San Giovanni, the Column of Saint John the Almoner, the Winged Victory a bronze monument located in the William Ingrosso municipal gardens. And, in Contrada Cisternella, a medieval necropolis dating back to the 8th -13th centuries. The typical picturesque alleys of the historic centre provide visitors with the atmosphere of times gone by and among which you will find old buildings and typical trattorias where you can sample the flavours and detect the characteristic aromas of the cuisine of the Salento hinterland.

Michela was extremely kind, knowledgeable and supportive. Any time we had a problem, we know we could count on her to do anything possible to try solve it quickly, effectively, and gracefully. Check in and check out were easy thanks to her.
What factors made you decide to book with Emma Villas?
The villa: location of the villa, apparent quality of the infrastructure of the villa (based on photos), pricing. We had initially seen another villa, but the amount of rooms was insufficient, and an Emma Villas customer representative reached out to suggest this other villa. That turned out to be a very good move.
