Anyone looking for a holiday home in Puglia for a summer holiday usually wants to be right on the coast, or on the beach. There are lots of beaches in the Salento area: despite being just a small peninsula Salento has lots of rocky coves and kilometre-long beaches. In general there are not many hotels in Salento, so the main way of finding accommodation is to take a privately-owned holiday house or apartment or one managed by an estate agent or travel agent. In my opinion, having an apartment for your holiday is much better than staying in a hotel: it saves you money, it gives you a holiday just as good as one in a hotel, and you have total independence. Naturally, I should point out: there are often cases when the accommodation is not up to it, or perhaps the offer is a scam; another thing, if you are looking for an all inclusive holiday with full board, then better go to a hotel. But for us at StayCiao Vacation Rentals, over the past few years we have selected a number of holiday homes and apartments right on the sea, in our area which stretches from the beaches of Porto Cesareo, going from the bay of Torre Lapillo to the beach of Punta Prosciutto. Here are a few of our seaside accommodation offers for your holiday in Salento and managed by our estate agency ThePuglia Real Estate!
1) Villa Luciana, Torre Lapillo beach (ID: TL43)
A fantastic villa right on the beach at Torre Lapillo, in the southern part of the bay, near Torre Chianca. This villa, as well as being on the beach, also has a beautiful sea view. This is a real one-off, for a holiday right on one of the most beautiful parts of the Salento coastline.
2) Two-roomed apartment in Villa, beach of Torre Lapillo (ID: TL34)
A two-roomed apartment within a larger villa which also contains another apartment to let. It is just 20 metres from the beach in the centre of Torre Lapillo, near Bahia del Sol and Orange Sun. A great place for anyone who wants to step outside right onto the beach.
3) Villa Solaria, beach of Torre Lapillo (ID: TL26)
A lovely villa with 3 bedrooms, again right on the beach in the same area as the previous 2-roomed apartment. Here, too, step outside and you’re right on the sandy beach! The garden is lovely, too, for quiet moments of relaxation between bathing and other things.
4) Casa Elisena, beach of Torre Lapillo (ID: TL45)
A family cabin behind the dunes at Torre Lapillo, near Lido La Pineta. Casa Elisena is less than 50 metres from the dunes, still right on the sea. Moreover, thanks to its location right near the centre of Torre Lapillo, it is really close to all the main amenities you need for a good seaside holiday.
5) Two-roomed apartment, beach of Torre Lapillo (ID: TL31)
A recently-refurbished, all-new, two-roomed apartment on the first floor less than 50 metres from the main beach of Torre Lapillo bay. Ideal for a couple with or without children this accommodation, too, is a great choice being near to every amenity: park the car and in just 50 metres you have the beach and everything else you need!
6) Apartments behind the dunes, beach of Punta Prosciutto (ID: PP03A)
In the area near Punta Prosciutto we have apartments that sleep 4 located right behind the dunes near Lido degli Angeli. They are located in a complex with a garden that has direct access to the beach: just walk through the dunes and you come to the beach.
7) Sea-view apartments, beach of Punta Prosciutto (ID: PP03M)
Still in the same area as the previous apartments, we have two apartments both with spectacular sea views. These, too, are ideal accommodation for a family, and have direct access to the beach and the sea.
8) Casetta Sole, beach of Punta Prosciutto (ID: PP04)
A lovely comfortable cabin with enclosed external space right close to the beach. Recently completely refurbished. It is located on a property with its own grounds, so once you’ve driven into the complex and parked up you can then set off on foot to explore this beautiful part of the Salento coast.
9) Sea Apartment, beach of Punta Prosciutto (ID: PP05)
A spacious apartment with 3 bedrooms, Wi-Fi, large outside area with well-maintained garden, terrace, sun-bathing area, shaded car park … and direct access to the sea.
10) Villa della Luna, beach of Punta Prosciutto (ID: PP08)
A wonderful, luxury villa with 3 bedrooms and private direct access to the beach. What more could you want?
Let me end with a little advice. You need to consider that holiday homes and apartment right on the beach are not easy to find here, for two main reasons: a) they are few and far between b) many places are in poor condition because of damp – being right close to the sea. This is why we, rather than simply choosing the places we offer, we also select places that belong to owners more willing to undertake annual maintenance. If you don’t mind being another 50 metres from the beach, we have lots more places on offer. And believe me, the difference between 50 and 100 yards from the beach isn’t that much.
