Overlooking a beautiful cove and sparkling turquoise waters, this 6-bed, 5-bath villa in the lively and popular resort of Marina di Pulsano offers a large and luxurious retreat only a few steps from the calm crystal clear and turquoise sea.
Undiscovered by other Europeans, the Salento area in the south of Puglia (the southernmost part of Italy's heel), is where many Italians choose to holiday. Located on the western coast of Salento in the south of Puglia, its Ionian coast is much calmer and sandier than the better known Adriatic coastline on the eastern coast. Apart from its own natural coastal beauty, the area of Pulsano is at the heart of Primitivo wine country and provides the perfect base to explore the region’s coastline of Caribbean-style white beaches, pretty bays and coves, fabulous food and wine at amazing prices and stunning baroque architecture a little further afield.
The villa itself is great for large or two families, with lots of living space inside and out. Newly refurbished with architect designed interiors, there is sleeping for up to 12 in 6 bedrooms with 5 bathrooms (4 ensuite). There is a well-equipped kitchen, dining area with access to the terrace and living room all with sea views immediately outside. Outdoors, you can soak up the sun and share meals on one of three terraces, or cool off in the hot tub.
Who would need a swimming pool (even if one was allowed so close to the seaside) when you can step barefoot out of the house straight onto sandy beaches with crystal clear shallow waters lapping your feet. Ideal for toddlers learning to swim or sitting with your baby in the cooling seas, you can also launch our own kayaks from a little shallow slipway by the house and more able swimmers can swim through the waters going from totally clear to turquoise to deep blue beautifully refreshing waters.
Daily conveniences are also only a few steps away including, a bakery, cafe, bars and convenience store in the summer. In the mornings, you can grab fresh coffee, croissants and pastries just across the road.
Something for all the family with toddlers able to learn to swim, choice of games and kayaks for the kids, teenagers enjoying the lively resort during July and August, top up your tan from March-October, enjoy the delicious and wholesome food and wine for great value, enjoy the historic towns in the area and enjoy peace and tranquility September - June.
All told, whether you want to explore Puglia’s history-filled towns, dig into its fabulous food, or lounge on its sun-blessed beaches, this luxurious villa lets you have the Italian escape you’ve been dreaming about.
This luxurious beachside villa offers family groups or other special interest groups stylish living in a picture-perfect coastal setting. Step out of your villa straight onto the beach where you can paddle, snorkel, swim or kayak in the glittering clear blue waters of the Ionian Sea. The villa overlooks a sheltered rocky cove with large stretches of sand to sprawl out and relax.
Newly refurbished, the property itself features 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms with comfortable sleeping for 12, making it ideal for those seeking a spacious retreat right beside the sea.
On the ground floor, a bright living room offers a comfy chill-out space to relax after hitting the beach. Fold back the windows for all the sights and sounds of the sea and there’s a flat-screen TV/DVD for movie nights, while a log-burning fireplace keeps things feeling snug during cooler winter nights. In the rare cooler days there is a real fire to relax with.
A well-equipped kitchen makes it easy to whip up hearty group meals, while a large dining area with seating for twelve offers a relaxing spot for long and lazy Mediterranean lunches. You can of course lounge and dine outside on one of the three terraces. There is also a bbq.
The ground floor also has a shared bathroom off the spacious corridor, along with three separate bedrooms. The first bedroom has a king size bed and is ensuite with disabled bathroom facilities, the second bedroom comes with two twin beds, while the third bedroom doubles as a kids room and features a double sofa bed and flat-screen TV and x box.

This villa is perfection: a fantastic location footsteps to the beach, stunning views, lots of indoor and outdoor space, stylish and contemporary decor, really comfortable beds, quality appliances and it was spotlessly clean. We enjoyed meals on the terrace, paddle boarding in the calm bay, walking to the many restaurants and complete relaxation. It was a real joy to discover Marina di Pulsano and surrounds, a corner of Puglia beloved of Italians where we didn’t hear one other English accent!

We have rented the villa for one week at the end of September 2020. The house is fantastic, a lot of space, high quality furnishing, tastefully decorated and very well equipped. The position, a few steps only from the sea, is really the top for relaxing and enjoying this piece of Paradise. We could not ask for a better location. This is not our first time in Puglia and Pulsano and we knew this wonderful sea already, but being in this beautiful house added value to our holiday. The only thing I would suggest is to provide some more beach chairs, because there was only one available. But this is really just an optional. Natalia and Mariangela

The villa is beautiful, and well prepared with all possible amenities.
Seconds walk from the beach and the roof terrace shows off the stunning views of the region.
Also some great restaurants within walking distance.
Thanks so much to Cathy and Steve for an excellent stay.

Another fantastic year in this incredible villa. The stunning views and beautiful beach right on the door step just don’t disappoint. 10/10 stay yet again - thank you!
Salento is the southern part of Puglia spanning both sides of the heel of Italy. The Ionian Sea on the west enjoys very calm crystal clear waters and carribbean like beaches. Along with 500 miles of coastline, paradisiacal beaches and glittering bays, the region is dotted with medieval towns, sun-baked olive groves and vineyards belonging to the Masseria that dot the countryside. The delicious home grown and cooked local food will delight both palettes and wallets especially washed down with the strong and smooth wines of Primitivo and Negroamara.
It is no wonder that this is a favourite holiday spot for Italians yet quite undiscovered by other nationalities as yet.
Marina di Pulsano enjoys one picturesque cove after another all with sparkling clear waters. Pulsano’s old town is also a treasure trove of historical sights.
