Located in a unique position 20 kilometers north of the baroque city of Lecce, in Puglia, Certosa overlooks vast fields of olive groves and vineyards. Once the country residence of a noble family and then the property of a retired priest, the villa has now become a 5-star luxury vacation rental retreat, perfect for all those wanting to experience an authentic and genuine Italian holiday.
The gardens have been rejuvenated and expanded and a beautiful infinity pool has been added. Nowadays, Certosa is with no doubt the perfect place where to relax and enjoy the countryside as well as explore the beauty of the Salento area.
The estate sits on the edge of a beautiful ridge overlooking a valley filled with olive orchards and vineyards. In the distance, you will see the town of Campi Salentina, Novoli, Guaghano and Salice Salentino, which are all renowned for their excellent wine production. The surrounding countryside is ideal for long walks and outdoor activities, from bike riding to jogging. The closest towns Squinzano and Campi Salentina offer all you will need for your stay and Lecce is just 20 minutes drive, with the best restaurants and great nightlife.

"Your team in Puglia is so thoughtful and took great care of us. We and our friends enjoyed every moment on you property and felt like we were in a dream. We honestly could not have been more happy. Your sense of design and of hospitality are formidable!"

"How lovely to have stayed at Certosa ! The house was beautiful as always and Francesco was great - informative and friendly. I think i single-handedly cleared your tomato patch, the children were very excited to see the chickens and were very pleased when a particularly enthusiastic magpie stole our eggs.
Puglia is so different from Tuscany/Umbria but it was good to be away from the hoards of tourists and explore a new part of Italy!"
