Casa Alessio


Serene and simple in design, this elegant, pared-back apartment offers a chic urban retreat in an ancient town, close to the rocky coves and sandy beaches of the beguiling Salentine peninsula


Casa Alessio is a stunning renovation of the upper two floors of a town house in historically and culturally rich Nardó, close to the Ionian coast on the Salentine peninsula.

A thoughtful design has kept the old soul of the apartment and imbued it with a modern touch that maximises the light and offers a simple yet stylish sanctuary where guests are invited to enjoy a slower pace of life.

Comfortably sleeping four guests in two double bedrooms, each with their own bathroom, the star of the show is the elegant roof terrace with its dining and sitting areas either side of the internal kitchen.

Casa Alessio is perfectly placed for guests to enjoy the immediate convenience of its town location, and it would be easy to while away days on the roof terrace delighting in the region’s stunning food and wines. But given that the apartment is just a few kilometers from the beautiful Ionian coastline and not far from other pretty Baroque towns, it would be a shame not to explore a little further afield before returning to the simple chicness of this fabulous property.

Rooms description


Bedrooms

The apartment has two double bedrooms on the lower of the property’s two floors, located either side of the living room. The deliberately minimal look showcases the clean lines and muted colour palette while offering a calm and comfortable place to sleep.

Bathrooms

Each bedroom has its own bathroom – one with a bathtub and the other with a large shower occupying an original arched niche. Both are luxurious in their simplicity.

Kitchen

The fully equipped kitchen is on the upper floor that was, originally, just a roof terrace. Occupying the central space and framed by Critall-style windows and doors that open wide onto the beautifully appointed outdoor living and dining spaces on either side, the kitchen combines form with function. White, floor-length curtains frame the view and contrast with the incredible sunsets, while the beautiful stone floor continues from the kitchen to the terrace.

Living rooms

The apartment is entered through the spacious living room on the lower floor. Lit by a skylight that guarantees soft and natural light throughout the day, this calm space is simply decorated and offers an elegant and cool refuge for reading and relaxing.

Your villa and Covid-19


To prevent any possible spread of Covid-19 and to enable you to enjoy a safe and relaxing holiday, all our villas are cleaned to the highest standard possible, and according to the latest Italian health and safety regulations.

Perfect hygiene: to ensure an exceptional level of hygiene in all our villas, we’ve worked with our owners to create a Covid-19 villa management protocol. Based on recommendations from the World Health Organisation, and in compliance with current Italian national law, this protocol goes above and beyond our usual rigorous cleaning standards.

Prior to arrival, your villa will have been fully sanitised, including all surfaces, objects, kitchen items, curtains, sofas, throws, pillows, toys, and in and around the pool. You are welcome to ask for a detailed list of the entire cleaning procedure we do after each departure and before welcoming new guests to the property.

The owner of this house has complied with the following standards:

  • To ensure the necessary information concerning social distancing and the use of masks is available to all guests
  • To guarantee availability of and accessibility to hand hygiene systems with hydro-alcoholic solutions and soaps in all inside areas of, and pertaining to, the villa
  • To guarantee cleaning and disinfection of all areas according to national authority guidelines. Further information is available on request
  • For the swimming pool: to guarantee the efficacy of the water treatments, while respecting legal limits (the parameter for free active chlorine in the pool is between 1.0 – 1.5 mg/l; combined chlorine ≤ 0.40 mg/l; pH 6.5 – 7.5 or equivalent oxygen)
  • For air conditioning systems: to guarantee the air re-circulation function is switched off and, according to the manufacturer’s instructions, with the plant in off-mode, to clean the air filters of the heating/cooling plants that use heat pumps, fan coils and convectors, at the end of each stay
