The historic center is characterized by elegant churches in Baroque style and buildings built in Pietra Leccese, the typical stone of this area. Among the monuments to visit, do not miss Piazza Sant’Oronzo with its “Sedile” and the column with the statue of the Patron which gives the name to the square, the Roman amphitheater, the church of Santa Croce and the Duomo.

In addition to visit the numerous bars, restaurants and shops, do not miss: the Aragonese Castle, where very important art exhibitions take place every year; the Cathedral of Santa Maria Annunziata, with its mosaic on the floor, dating back to the mid-twelfth century; the chapel dedicated to the martyrs of Otranto, with the bones of those who died in the massacre by the Turks in 1480.

QUARRY OF BAUXITE

This site is an ex-quarry of bauxite extraction, abandoned in the ’70s. Located near Otranto, the place is one of the most famous in Salento thanks to the lunar-like landscape with the greenish pond that offers a striking contrast with the red of the hills of bauxite.

GALLIPOLI

The old town of the “beautiful city”, as the Greeks used to call it, is one of those things worth visiting: surrounded by the sea, the heart of the city is enclosed within fortified walls. With an all-oriental charm, Gallipoli is influenced by the Byzantines, Norman Swabians and Angevins.

Grotta della Zinzulusa

The cave is invaded by both sea and spring waters and it is divided into three parts: entrance, crypt (inhabited by a large number of bats) and bottom.

They are among the most unspoiled places of Salento, with an ecosystem that hosts various animal and plant species. The two lakes are located at north of Otranto and take their name from the ancient Greek and Byzantine.

The beach of the Alimini

Alimini seaside

In the oasis of the Alimini lakes, it is worth visiting, on the coast, “La baia dei Turchi”, a wild and uncontaminated beach, a place where – according to the legend – the Turkish warriors would have landed in the battle of Otranto in the XVth century.

CIOLO

Paradise for lovers of trekking, the Ciolo canal is one of the deepest ravines of Salento.

Il Salento sbarca in Norvegia: Apprezzate le ville di lusso per vacanze!

7 Gen

Dal 12 al 14 gennaio CaseSalento e VilleSalento saranno presenti alla Telenor Arena per l’edizione 2018 di Reiselivsmessen Oslo, la fiera internazionale del turismo, in Norvegia.

COS’È?

La fiera, che nel tempo si è affermata come una fra le più importanti del settore, è uno snodo cruciale per l’incontro fra espositori – provenienti da tutto il mondo e da differenti rami del commercio turistico – e visitatori, appassionati di viaggi e curiosi di conoscere mete sempre nuove per sperimentare culture diverse.

Le ville di lusso del Salento sbarcano nel mercato scandinavo

PERCHÉ PARTECIPARVI?

Rivolgersi ad un pubblico internazionale, e, soprattutto, disposto a spendere tempo e attenzione per scegliere la meta del prossimo viaggio, fra circa 200 espositori, è una sfida che siamo pronti a raccogliere e che dà alla nostra terra, il Salento, un importante stimolo per crescere e consolidarsi nel settore dell’affitto di ville di lusso.

Non solo. Partecipare alla tre giorni norvegese ci permette di posizionarci in un mercato strategico, come quello scandinavo, che ha:

  • un’elevata propensione per i viaggi all’estero
  • una preferenza per le destinazioni balneari
  • un’attitudine a viaggiare anche nei periodi fuori stagione
  • un ottimo tenore di vita che consente di soggiornare in immobili di target medio-alto

In questo scenario, il Salento rappresenta una meta ottimale per soddisfare le richieste di tale mercato e CaseSalento e VilleSalento si propongono di intercettare al meglio questa domanda, offrendo ville di lusso e masserie con piscina o vista mare, per far vivere agli ospiti un’esperienza unica, da provare in ogni stagione. Non solo il mare d’estate, dunque, ma anche la cultura e le tradizioni da scoprire durante tutto il resto dell’anno.

Rivolgersi al turismo proveniente dalla Scandinavia assicura, inoltre, indiscussi vantaggi anche per i proprietari che affidano alla nostra azienda le loro ville di lusso.

In primo luogo, si punta a destagionalizzare l’offerta, portando clienti anche in periodi considerati “fuori stagione”; in secondo luogo si ha la possibilità di avere nelle proprie ville, con piscina o vista mare, turisti selezionati e rispettosi.

Il tutto viene gestito dalla nostra agenzia che si occuperà dell’affitto degli immobili con professionalità e senza stress per garantire il migliore servizio per i proprietari.

I NUMERI DELLA FIERA

Cinque sono in tutto le categorie che si potranno visitare alla fiera del turismo: “The big world”, “Residenze all’estero”, “Destinazione Norvegia”, “Crociere” e “Spa”.

Circa 42mila i visitatori che hanno fatto sosta fra gli stand della fiera nella passata edizione.

Numerosissimi, infine, i paesi rappresentati nella tre giorni norvegese: dall’Europa, agli Stati Uniti, passando per il Sud America, la Thailandia e l’Oriente.

Gli stand nella scorsa edizione della fiera di Oslo

Senza dubbio una vetrina e un’opportunità imperdibili per mettere in risalto l’ospitalità salentina rappresentata dalle ville di lusso, esclusive, con piscina o vista mare, da cui ciascun visitatore potrà godersi le bellezze paesaggistiche, culturali ed enogastronomiche della nostra terra.
