Heart of the Salento; Very peaceful, light an airy, recently restored old village house down a side street in the middle of this quaint well-located village (pop. 3,700). Live the Puglia dream from this romantic hide-away. Both oceans are a short drive away giving access to numerous sandy and rocky beaches as well as picturesque little ports - take your pick. All around there is fantastic food and wine to be had with some favourite recommendations in the leaflet in the house. Supermarkets and deli in the village as well as a wonderful bars selling a vast array of cakes and pastries, bank and chemist. More shopping can be done in the unique baroque city of Lecce, the regional capital, a 1/2 hour away or take advantage of market. The evening passagiata where you can see and be seen can be enjoyed in the village, in Lecce or perhaps in Gallipoli, the magnificently located walled city to the West. Failing all else the Queen (aka Helen Mirren) is close by!

The house was great with lots of character! (loved the vaulted ceilings and the cacti)
We had breakfast in the small courtyard and afternoon drinks on the roof while the sun set over Miggiano. The outdoor shower was super for an after-beach shower.
The village is relaxed (sleepy, friendly and very Italian) and great location for excursions both to beaches and the small towns of Salento. We even got to experience a village festival the last evening while the Pizza madam at Borgo Vecchio urged us to eat and drink more :)
Bruce gave us really good recommendations and was a great host!
Herman, you were a joy to host and certainly fell happily into the Salento way. I hope you come back and experience more of what the Salento has to offer - perhaps for the light festival in Scorrano at the beginning of July?
All the very best
Charmant maison au cœur du Salento
La maison de Bruce est parfaite pour découvrir le Salento. Située dans un petit village typique et proche de la mer, la maison est jolie et très agréable. Décorée avec beaucoup de goût, elle également bien équipée. Bruce n'habite pas sur place mais vous donne toutefois de précieuses adresses pour découvrir le coin. A recommander
Grazie Sophie. Era una piacuto conoscerti e speriamo che siamo in contatti nel future.
Charming house in the Salento
The house is very nice, comfortable and calm. It is clean and well maintained. It has a roof-terrace and a cellar, and the rooms of the house are connected by a small courtyard decorated with cactus (without spines) and with stone benches.
We stood there during a very hot period and enjoyed its equipment, the air cond. We appreciated the welcome and the help of Bruce to facilitate our life there. I am in a wheelchair and preparation is important. The village of Miggione is located closed to pretty villages and nice beaches. We actually enjoyed our stay very much. I would highly recommend it for vacations in the Salento.
Thank you Isabelle for your kind words. I am very glad you enjoyed your stay and am delighted that after all our discussions and preparations the house worked well for you. We hope to see you again in the Salento sometime soon.
All the best
Casa molto accogliente, comoda e spaziosa. Arredamento nuovissimo, ideale per 2 coppie.
Bellissima esperienza e vacanza fantastica. Eravamo 2 coppie di amici e siamo rimasti molto contenti sia per l'ospitalità ricevuta sia per la bellezza della casa. Pur non essendo sul mare ti permette di raggiungere molto facilmente le spiagge più belle del Salento: Castro, porto miggiano (costa adriatica) gallipoli (costa jonica). La casa era molto pulita e disponeva di tutte le comodità necessarie: aria condizionata, lavatrice, angolo cottura, TV e soprattutto una magnifica terrazza. Vi consiglio fortemente la casa di Bruce, non ve ne pentirete!
Carlo.... thank you for your kind words. You were a pleasure to know and host. I am very glad you enjoyed your time at the house as well as more generally your time in Salento. I hope you will come again. All the very best Bruce
Schönes Haus, unkomplizierter Vermieter, keine Parkmöglichkeit da sehr zentral in Altstadtgasse
wir haben den Vermieter nicht persönlich getroffen, lief alles unkompliziert über Mail / SMS. Bettwäsche etwas muffig und für Hausstauballergiker problematisch. Parken ohne Italienischkenntnisse manchmal etwas schwierig. Wir haben eine sehr schöne Woche verlebt.
Die Wohnung ist sehr liebevoll renoviert. Durch Beibehaltung der alten Bausubstanz sind die Räume selbst im Hochsommer auch ohne Einsatz der vorhandenen Klimaanlagen angenehm kühl. Das zweite Schlafzimmer liegt separat und ist über den Innenhof zu erreichen. In dem Hof haben wir jeden morgen gefrühstückt und den Tag ausklingen lassen. Optimal ist die Wohnung für zwei Pärchen oder eine Familie mit zwei Kinder, da der große Wohnraum mit zwei bequemen Schlafsofas sich nicht abdunkeln lässt. Das Meer ist ca. nach 30 min in drei Himmelsrichtungen erreichbar und sehr abwechslungsreich (Fels mit Grotten und Klippenspringen oder Sandstrand). Alles Wichtige (Bäcker, Lebensmittel, Bar, Restaurant, Apotheke, Bank) ist fußläufig und auch ein Parkplatz lässt sich sogar im August problemlos finden. Das gilt jedoch nicht für die Strände, die dann sehr gut besucht sind.
Thank you for your kind words about the house. I am very glad that you and the family had such a good time and got to enjoy Miggiano as well as the nearby beaches. We hope to see you again.
All the best
Very easy to find. Miggiano is located just 0.5km off the main road from Brindisi to Santa Maria di Leuca, at the end of Italy. There are many fantastic beaches and restaurants nearby as well as sites of historical interest. The price includes all services, such as heating or air conditioning as well as cleaning before and after your stay.
