Casa Goccia is an immaculate white washed house situated within the small ancient town of Tiggiano, about 3,5 km from the seaside. The house has all the picturesque, distinctive features of a traditional Salento house, with its inner courtyard and small garden, and its stone stairway which gives access to a magnificent furnished terrace with a small masonry dippingpool. The owners personally took care of the renovations and did their best to preserve and enhance the original features of the building, equipping it with all the conveniences that modern technology provides for today’s homes. The love for details and particulars give it a unique touch of charm and character.
