After many years of travel, the owner looking for a quiet retreat, and finds it in the family home, called 'fairy' to a legend created by his grandfather while building the house.
The child then loves this house and made it a place of travel memories, handcrafted furniture, furnishings and trunks that are particularly from South America. To evoke the past of the house were recovered old cabinets and objects belonging to the family, together with other restored by the owner. The master bedroom, spacious and bright, equipped with air conditioning, has a beautiful family bed iron. The dresser is from crafts Indonesian.
A large '800 cent. trunk contains wooden household linen, finely embroidered by hand. The second bedroom has a romantic alcove with a wrought iron bed (XIX cent.) and a view of the hill behind which stands a charming farm of the '500 and a pajara. The third is designed to contain objects and elements from places lived by the hosts. The bathroom - simple and comfortable - has an old taste. The kitchen has a practical pantry where everything is placed, a refectory and a shelf recreate past atmospheres. The white tiles have been enriched by a delicious drawing made by the owner. The kitchen opens onto an outdoor area with a lovely iron gazebo. A huge hand-crafted table is perfect for convivial meetings. Strongly backed by the landlord, a huge barbecue ''asador 'Argentine style makes possible stunning grilled meat. The owners like the white, but the landscape and the light that changes during the day convinced them to introduce a touch of blue to create colour games and more intense reflections. Besides having a beautiful sea nearby, this place also offers the possibility of lovely walks, away from the hustle of the city.
In the bright dining room blue and white chase on chairs and walls, and old scraps of English chintz reinvent two armchairs from overseas. In the living room beautiful furniture made by local craftsmen with skill and wisdom, here an old bus, there a bunch of old keys: many delicate details that reveal the soul of the house. A table (XIX cent.) with marble top, chairs upholstered in English cloth with floral pattern that recalls the countryside, next to a fireplace that during the days of autumn and winter recreates a warm atmosphere. The large windows overlooking the patio with a nice sofa, and then the large garden surrounding the house.
A strange gazebo wanted by the landlord and built with chestnut poles evokes travel atmospheres and gives a pleasant shade to the patio area, used as a relaxation area. When the heat starts, the patio becomes the stage of the celebrations with friends. In the garden, a corner recreates a pleasant atmosphere of the forest, with two splendid examples of Mediterranean pine. A wide hammock under the two trees is the ideal place to relax and read on sunny afternoons of Salento.
The rest of the garden attracts the surrounding countryside with fig trees and prickly pears. This home allows you to enjoy the atmosphere not only during the summer, but also throughout the year. In late September and early fall, grapes, prickly pears along with the newfound peace of the sea offer an atmosphere of thorough relaxation ; the sea becomes even more beautiful because it is typical of this time of the night that north wind makes the waters and the colours are truly unique: it is possible to swim until October, but those who really love the sea can imagine how this place is lovely during winter or autumn. The house offers the opportunity to experience all seasons in full.
It 's a house equipped with all comforts - including a practical outside bathroom and a convenient laundry room with everything you need to iron - to spend a very pleasant stay not only in summer but also in winter and the warm spring of Salento.
The dwelling of the fairies is the house that the owner's father built in 1974 to rally his large family during the summer holidays sweet time.
The choice of the fishermen village reflects his old love for the sea passed down through generations. The current owner, after spending several years abroad, wanted to renovate this delightful family home in which he preserves memories of childhood: the raids with friends on the beach and along the legendary 'channel', the sunny afternoons at the shade of the fig tree, the memory of the children who grew up in the same corner of the house.
The dwelling represents the happy moments of the family. Now that the children are grown-up and the family is scattered throughout the world, the owners have decided to share this lovely home with guests. From the outdoor dining area you can enjoy a wonderful view of the surrounding countryside and on two buildings typical of Salento: a "pajara" and a fortified farm of the XIV cent..
