Casa Dora - Guagnano - Lecce - Puglia



Casa Dora: a relaxing oasis in the heart of Puglia

 In Puglia, about twenty kilometers from the Ionian coast of Porto Cesareo and the art city of Lecce is the beautiful and comfortable Casa Dora. Strategic starting point for exploring the beauty of the region, Casa Dora is located in the small town of Guagnano. Immersed in the Salento countryside and surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, Guagnano is located in the territory of Arneo, the  land of the delicious wines from Puglia and particularly of the famous red wine Negroamaro. The location of the house makes it an ideal starting point to discover the natural wealth, historical, artistic and gastronomic whole Salento peninsula. From Guagnano is indeed quickly reach the marvelous sandy coast of Porto Cesareo (Torre Lapillo) or the rocky coast of the nature reserve of Porto Selvaggio and the charming Baroque old towns of Lecce, Nardo and Galatina, but also the most beautiful towns of northern Salento and Itria Valley as Ostuni, Cisternino, Alberobello, Ceglie, Locorotondo etc., and the most popular attractions of Salento, such as Otranto, Castro, Leuca and Marina di Pescoluse to name only the best known.


But Casa Dora is also a perfect place for those who want to retreat to a oasis of peace at the end of a long day exploring the region. Dating from the mid 800 the house is about 100 square meters and consists of a series of vaulted ceilings, typical of the Salento architectures, also known as "volte leccesi". Its main access is by a glass door that leads us into a spacious living room through which you are in the large master bedroom and kitchen with fireplace. Followed by the other two bedrooms: one double room with bathroom and the other with two single beds and one bathroom. The house can accommodate up to 6 people. Cool in summer, the house revolves around the shaded cloister from the large lemon tree, perfect for unforgettable breakfasts and dinners by candlelight. Through a simple scale near the boundary wall, it leads to the roofs with the hump (because covering the underlying domes). The roofs, situated on various levels, are as many terraces that invite you to lie down on the bumps of the domes to savor a good glass of local wine and enjoy the profume of summer looking at the stars in a magical night of South Italy. Welcome to Casa Dora!

Nous avons passé une douzaine de jours formidables avec notre fille chez Mario en ce mois d'août. Sans être exceptionnel, le village de Guagnano recèle quelques pépites (une très bonne pizzeria et un délicieux traiteur, où travaille justement l'assistante de notre hôte) et offre une position stratégique pour rayonner dans tout le sud des Pouilles. Une voiture s'avère toutefois indispensable pour bien explorer la région. La maison de Mario est vaste et fraîche, simple mais élégante et agréable à vivre de jour comme de nuit (air conditionné partout). Elle est équipée de tout ce dont vous pouvez rêver pour la cuisine et la table, le bain et le coucher, le confort de la vie quotidienne (parasol de plage, fer et table à repasser, etc.). Mario est un hôte prévenant et attentif, Ileana assure un accueil plein d'attentions et de gentillesse. Merci à tous ! Nous recommandons sans réserve. Bernard et Véronique

Maurizio - August '17

L'accoglienza di Mario e' stata perfetta, sempre presente e gentile prima e durante il soggiorno. La descrizione e le foto dell'alloggio danno un'immagine precisa di ciò che viene offerto. Guagnano e' un piccolo paese, di non grande attrattiva, dell'entroterra salentino che permette di essere sufficientemente vicini a molte ed interessanti località: Lecce, Ostuni, Otranto, Porto Cesareo....
