PRIVATE STRUCTURE. Villa Manco is a charming villa located in the scenic area of Santa Maria di Leuca and is thus an oasis of tranquility in addition to boasting a wonderful view of the sea. The house stands in approximately 3000 m of well-maintained garden with palm trees and the typical plants of the area. The main attraction is the irregular-shaped pool in the centre of the park and behind which is a large porch ideal for relaxing in. The white of the façade and the Gothic-arched windows introduce the refined, exclusive rooms enhanced by the indoor pool with hydro-massage function.
The villa consists of a main building and an adjacent annex. A large glass entrance door leads into the main building and, in particular, into the bright dining room. This is characterized by a beautiful, 6 m long, wall kitchen and an elegant table in the same style, ideal for getting together and enjoying the renowned traditional Salento cuisine. To the right of the entrance is a hallway with additional areas that serve the kitchen and a ladder leading down to a basement storeroom. The kitchen leads on to the immense and bright open-plan room from which two different doors lead directly outside. This room is characterized first by a cosy TV and conversation area with sofas and comfortable chairs and then by the impressive indoor pool surrounded by large windows that do not obstruct in any way the view of the luxuriant park outside. The living area leads on to the sleeping area with four bedrooms and three bathrooms.

The annex located near the main house has a double bedroom, another double bedroom with queen size bed (1,40 m wide) and a very particular shared bathroom built in a finely renovated trullo (characteristic cylindrical house with conical roof, found in Puglia). The laundry room stands between the main building and the annex and has a separate entrance.
The fully fenced garden covers about 3000 sq m. It is enriched by numerous palm trees in harmony with the typical vegetation, flowering plants and lawn around the pool area. The large wooden porch is the ideal place for relaxing completely in the enchanting surrounding atmosphere.
