Property:

Location:

La Casa Del Curato , sleeps 4

Ortelle Castro Marina

on the terrace

This property is located on the south tip of Apulia, a few km from Otranto. The Salento is an attractive land, rich of history, culture and with a tourist potential still to be discovered, tourist reception being still not yet developed in this non industrialized area. The result is uncontaminated sand beaches and rocks in incredibly unpolluted blue Seawater.
This property, a real off the beaten truck, is located 2 km from the Sea.

Children under 20 are not accepted.

The house, dating from the end of 17th century, as engraved on a stone in the “Hall of The Vaults”, belonged to a prelate living in Ortelle.
The first room was built in the early twentieth century, as appears from the style of the façade on the entry and was a carpenter's workshop until a few decades ago, as testifies the old front door on which the old paint have been waxed to preserve the memory of the place.
court

double bedroom A working fireplace and three splitter on/off heating or freezing make the first room very cosy. From here you access the rest of the house and through a typical old staircase with a glass floor on the first step, which allows the display of the typical basement, you enter the terrace.
The interior of the house consists of a first room with large vaulted ceilings, typical of the Salento and Lecce stone finished. Each room is equipped with a splitter on/of.


The room leads to the room of the tub – the two rooms are also connected through a window - where there's an old stone basin that was used for the storage of oil or grain, now used as a bath bathroom.
The room has an old tiled floor of the early twentieth century.
The room with tub is in facts a separated room, a living room with vaulted ceiling and an antique bathtub lined with Bisazza mosaics in various shades of purple eggplant, as well as the exterior of the tank. The floor of the room is made of concrete coloured eggplant as the bathtub. A door window access to a small courtyard and another door gives access to the kitchen.

On the terraces on the first floor stands the guest room with a bagno. The room has a large window framing the cathedral.
Under the house with access from the street is a clean store where you leave the bins for waste separation, as requested by local authorities.

kitchen Since the mid-17th century Ortelle was enriched by developments in Baroque style, o f excellent appearance. The Church of San Giorgio (seventeenth century) in Baroque style, has a rich portal carved in 1633. The interior has three naves with baroque altars and the church facade is in white stone of Lecce. The frescoes in the crypt, houses, alleys, churches and palaces made of local stone, are worthy of being watched carefully.
