Villa Capozza is a historic residence among the most prestigious of Salento, located in Casarano, in the centre of the Salento peninsula about 15 km from the famous Ionian coast and the beautiful towns of Gallipoli and Santa Maria di Leuca and about 45 km from the enchanting town of Lecce, easily reachable via the highway. The structure consists of 2 units, the main villa and the annex. The first, main building is an Art Nouveau-style villa with 7 suites, all with en-suite bathroom with shower, as well as numerous living areas where you can spend moments of absolute relaxation, while the second unit is a large annex carefully renovated in pure Salento style, with a large, bright living area and with two suites on the first floor, both with en-suite bathroom with shower and private terrace.

MAIN VILLA: The 3-storey main unit is an Art Nouveau-style villa dating back to the early 18th century, restructured and enlarged in 1918 by an Austrian architect, full of precious friezes, mosaics, decorations, columns and capitals in Lecce stone that give it a timeless charm. On the ground floor, a large entrance hall with fountain served by a dressing room leads into the hall of Wisteria, large and bright thanks to its balconies overlooking the pool; there is also a guest bathroom here. Following this is the hall of Fishes that invites you to the majestic winter garden, spectacular with its Art Nouveau windows. The hall of Flowers is a delightful dining room with an impressive fireplace in Lecce stone. A hallway leads to the large, functional kitchen and to a small kitchen with attached storage room. Also on the ground floor are two large suites, one with a private sitting room with two additional extra sleeps (on request) and both with en-suite bathroom with shower. An elegant staircase in Lecce stone leads up to the first floor with five luxurious suites, all with en-suite bathroom. From the more reserved Provençal suite, furnished in the style from which it takes its name (en-suite bathroom with shower), we move on to two, more modern, suites characterised by crystal walls (both with en-suite bathrooms with shower), then on to the master suite (king size bed and en-suite bathroom with shower), furnished with fine, early 19th century furniture and with a sitting room and then, finally, to the Panoramic suite (French size bed and en-suite bathroom with shower and whirlmassage tub) tub and stunning views of the pool area. On request, the villa also has, in the basement, a large champagnerie furnished in modern style: the ideal location for organising private parties. ANNEX: The second unit is about 30 metres from the main villa and has also undergone careful renovation. The entrance is located in front of the entrance to the main villa and leads into the large, already-mentioned, living area characterised by large windows that brighten the rooms and highlight the characteristic finishing touches of an environment that preserves a strong Salento soul. In the same area is also a guest bathroom and a characteristic stone staircase that leads up to the first floor with two suites, both with en-suite bathroom with shower and private terrace. Spectacular the loft with glass balustrades that from this same first floor overlooks the ground floor and ideally combines the pure Salento style of the living area with the more modern style that characterises the suites on the first floor.
Air conditioning only in the bedrooms.
The fenced-in outdoor area extends for about 10000 sq m. Close to the main building, and more precisely to the right of it, is the large solarium area, paved with large slabs of local stone, with the elegant infinity pool. Guests can reach this area down the flight of steps that connects the elegant portico characterised by imposing columns of Lecce stone, where you can have dine while admiring the elegance of the villa reflected in the crystal-clear water of the pool. Numerous tall trees such as pines and cypresses stand in various points near the buildings ensuring lots of natural shade in the parking area as well as in the areas next to the solarium. There are also various areas of lawn adorned with flowering plants and, in particular, next to the pool area is a small citrus grove with seating from where you can enjoy the view of the whole majestic property while reading a good book or sipping an apéritif, perhaps at sunset when Villa Capozza beautifies itself in preparation for an evening with its guests.Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.
The elegant, refined infinity pool characterises the large solarium area and its considerable size (16 x 8 m) guarantees guests ideal comfort. To get to it, you go through the large windows of the hall of Wisteria that lead out to the external portico and down the flight of steps. The pool, lined in turquoise PVC with chlorine purification and Roman steps for access to the water, measures 16 x 8 m with a constant depth of 1,20 m. The many seats around the pool guarantee guests the ideal place to relax completely with the show put on by Villa Capozza that is mirrored in the crystal-clear water waiting for the evening, when the pool lights up, enhancing the enchanting atmosphere of the surrounding area. Near the pool are two cold-water showers. The pool is available to guests from the first Saturday of May to the last Saturday of September.
