About the property

A lovely cottage, composed of one bedroom in the Trullo style with an ...

You will experience the most authentic side of Salento,

with its simple but genuine traditions: you will love the sunsets lulled

by the sound of cicadas, the slowed-down time, reading a book

surrounded by century-old olive trees.

This place is where you’ll be able to truly experience Apulia and its magic, far from the modern-day chaos.

Choose it for:

living Salento like people from Salento, with their most authentic traditions

a relaxing and regenerative vacation

the exclusive experience of living in a pajara 

The house is a typical Salentine pajara in the small village of Sternatia, in the heart of Grecìa Salentina, where pizzica, Taranta and the traditional local music were born. It’s a few km far from Lecce and the beaches of the Adriatic coast (Otranto, San Foca, Torre dell’Orso).

The stone, the true protagonist of the farmhouse

One of the strong points of the property, is the olive grove that surrounds it, with 20.000 square meters

of Mediterranean vegetation that guarantees full privacy. Once you

arrive in the heart of the estate, what captures your attention is the

majesty of the local stone that covers every corner of the house and guarantees fresh and aired spaces.

The farmhouse keeps some of the typical objects of the peasant’s culture, like the sink made in stone and the wooden plate rack.

The vine bower

In the front there are a vine bower and a covered patio that

guarantee a shaded area even in the hottest hours of the day. There,

you can find deckchairs where you can read or listening to music close

to nature.

The interiors

The house develops itself on 120 square meters that consists of a large living room with sofa bed and a pouf/bed, the habitable kitchen, a master bedroom and a bathroom.

The bedroom in a trullo


house is completed and made perfect by the characteristic trullo, made

with the typical stones of Salento. The trullo consists of a master

bedroom, a pouf/bed and a bathroom with shower.

The house is equipped with air conditioning and it’s the ideal for families or small groups of friends.

Outstanding property . See my comments below regarding location . Website needs to be updated ...

  • 5 of 5

The house is just as charming as portrayed on the website . Actually it’s a lot more than any pictures can portray. The house is in an abundance of space, olive trees, herb and vegetable garden all available to be utilized. The scent of lavender and rosemary was breathtaking .... The couple who met us at the house were kind and very knowledgeable of the region and always available, I rate them very highly. I wish my stay was longer and I could have shared the beautiful house with more friends and family.

The only question mark is the location and address posted on the VRBO is website is NOT the address and location. Not even close! The house is not in Roca Vecchia it is in Sternatia. A good 30 mins drive inland away from the beaches . Very misleading as we wasted a couple of hours finding the place ....

Once we did locate the house via several “international “ phone calls all was well. Sternatia is actually a charming village with an outstanding restaurant. Porta Antico is without doubt one of the finest in the region.

Thank you Puglia ! Bellisimo .....
