Location: Calma, recently restored, is located in the historical centre of one of the most charming villages of Salento, Muro Lecce, close to Maglie and the sandy beaches of Otranto. I have named this house Calma (Calm) as the owner , with the aid of his brother architect, has transferred is way of being into the house. It’s the ideal solution to live and experience the are: in a nice village, a beautiful simple but elegant home, private, with modern comforts and where to retrieve after a long day at the beach or having been round and about .
House: Through an old wooden, we enter the property under an high vaulted entrance hall. The courtyard is in common use with the one neighbour . Calma develops in an L shape. Left to the entrance the first double room, followed by the living room in which a staircase leads to what once was the cellar of the house now a large and amazing bathroom. Following the living room, the dining room from which: right the double room and straight the kitchen. From these two rooms the French doors open up onto the equipped terrace, garden and pool area. Going back to the double room, a door leads us a charming small staircase where: right the small bathroom and mid-way another tiny twin/double room with a sink in front a charming little window overlooking the down stair terrace, and to the roof equipped terrace, ideal for sun set aperitivi. The small double room has a small terrace and staircase which leads to the terrace/garden/pool area.
For larger groups (max 9 persons) Calma can be rented out together with Calma Guest house (ideal for 2 people) which privately lies at the end of the garden near the pool area, behind an old stone wall with two small gates. This unit also has an independent access from the road.
Personal note: The light colors, the elegant atmosphere, the high vaulted ceilings, the outdoor areas, the Salentine life at walking distance… what else can one what? … dream.

We had lovely stay! We enjoyed 100%!

Especially the interior design and garden. We also liked the size of the house! The small town of Muro Leccese felt like a pristine italian small city - which tourism has not yet discovered- so if you are looking for souvenirshops & party right outside - its not the right place - but within 5-15min drive you can have it all!! we would reccomend Esmeralda as a holiday house rental 5 star!

La maison est magnifique

Les photos de la maison sont moins bien que la réalité, la maison est magnifique, en plein coeur du centre ville, peu de touristes, les commerces vraiment proches et la chance d'avoir un sublime café et un bon restaurant à proximité. L'accueil fut impeccable, très gentil et très soucieux de notre bien-être. Merci

Nous avons été chaleureusement accueillis

Nous avons été chaleureusement accueillis par Esmeralda à notre arrivée, et avons passé un merveilleux séjour dans sa maison. La maison était encore plus belle en vraie que sur les photos. Spacieuse, décorée avec beaucoup de goût et très bien équipée. Nous nous sommes sentis chez nous pendant 8 jours. Les enfants ont bien profité du jardin et de la terrasse sur le toit. La petit ville de Muro Leccese est très agréable, avec tous les commerces à proximité, et à seulement quelques km de la mer.
