Not far from the beautiful sea of Otranto, Palazzo Ferras is an elegant house, which has been restored so to enrich the original characteristics of a XVI century palace with the modern comforts; a swimming pool in a vast garden featuring also a furnished pergola add up to its charm. Placed in the historic centre of Muro Leccese, one of the most charming little towns of Salento, Palazzo Ferras benefits of a privileged position, in so far it is just a few steps away from the centre, while at the same time offering the privacy of a villa.
The house is full of pieces of art and design, and features a beautiful swimming pool area in the garden, where the furnished pergola with a 20-seat table allows enjoying lunch or dinner al fresco in a very fascinating atmosphere. The house is built on two levels.
Ground floor: living area, comprising a large and fully equipped kitchen, and a particularly bright living room; 2 double bedrooms (separated by a door) and 2 bathrooms with shower (both not ensuite).
First floor: a very spacious suite composed of 1 double bedroom, 1 triple bedroom (adjoined to one another; this suite can thus be a perfect accommodation for a couple with children) and 1 bathroom with shower; 1 large double bedroom; 1 bathroom with shower; a sitting room with sofas and fireplace.
Outside: very well-kept garden, with an equipped pergola and beautiful swimming pool area (that is at sufficient distance from the house, so to be safer for babies and kids).
Muro Leccese is one of the finest towns in the southern area of Lecce, never too busy. The beautiful sea of Otranto, one of the most amazing coastal places in Italy, is only 10 minute drive away. Palazzo Ferras is close to the lovely main square of the town, and just a few steps away from delicious patisseries, fine restaurants (“Nonna Rosa” for instance is renowned for fish specialties and an excellent selection of wines), grocery stores, bars, etc.
The authenticity of this historic palace has been preserved through its careful restoration, enhancing its pristine beauty and architectural characteristics with the modern comforts and an exquisite touch of design in its interior décor.
