In Salento the coastline is fascinating and you can drive by car a few hours along the Adriatic coast line and passing many fine sea villages, like Otranto and Castro Marina. Continue to Santa Maria di Leuca and you are at the meeting of the two seas- the Adriatic and the Ionian.
Continue along the Ionian side for miles and miles of blue flag beaches. Gallipoli is fascinating city built on a peninsula and a marvelous old town. Further north east you find Santa Catarina which is a sophisticated place and many celebrities have holiday homes here during the hectic August summer time. A bit further comes the super Porto Cesareo with many seaside restaurants and a lovely bay with fishing boats.
Every were inland in Salento you see the vineyards and olive trees. Salento is a big producer with 40 % of wines and was 60 % of all Italian olive oil; you can buy 5 litres Extra Virgin oil for about EUR 35.
Inland Salento there are a number of historical charming villages with ancient history. The advantage to stay in a village is to be able to socialize with Italian neighbors, to walk to the cafe and buy a newspaper and a cup of coffee in the morning and having all amenities within reach day and night time. The town houses often come with a garden and roof terrace. You can stand in front of a simple door off the small street, when it opens you be surprised to find a mini palace inside, 50 sq m garden and a roof terrace with great views of the surrounding landscape.
In Stenatina and Martignano to the south of Lecce antique Greek is still spoken by the villagers.
Maglie is like a mini Lecce and with many fine buildings. Muro Leccese is smaller and also represent a small town/village with a fine architectural history. Cutrofiano popular for French holiday home ownership. Ruffano has many fine old buildings for sale, waiting to find new owners and to be restored. Surano has a small town center with very nice antique buildings for sale. Spongano again is a small village surrounded by olive groves. Here you can see secluded great villas and country retreats owned by foreigners and families from North Italy who come to relax in rural Salento.
The east coast of Salento is rougher than the south west and for people who enjoy the sea and fishing. Castro is beautiful with its location on top of the cliff by the sea and many villas with direct access to the sea. Santa Cesarea Terme is a spa resort, very popular with a beautiful setting and bay.
The cost from Santa Maria di Leuca to Gallipoli has many fine sandy beaches. The villages are perhaps not the prettiest but room for the beach life, pizzerias, restaurants and disco music summer time.
Santa Catarina well known also for its many fine villas in the area, some antique.
The sea outside of Porto Cesare0 further up the coast is probably the most beautiful with stunning sunsets.
