Excellent stay in lovely house with cool high-vaulted ceilings. There is a rooftop and garden to sit out ( beautiful aroma coming from the lemon tree!). Private, clean, comfortable and spacious, with all amenities.
A peaceful, relaxing village location. Just a few steps to the local shops (with fresh bread from the bakery) and couple of bars.
There are great walks in and around Marittima village, taking in ancient churches and Roman remains, with amazing wild flowers in abundance. Lots of fantastic fresh vegetables are being grown here (with acres of olive groves), which you can buy off the back of the farmer's truck every day.
The rugged coastline has plenty of coves and bays with boat excursions to the caves below. Numerous pretty marinas and Porto Tricase is particularly attractive. Near Castro, the interesting rocky outcrops are popular with the local fisherman.
Further south the sandy beach Santa Maria di Leuca is perfect with it's clear blue sea.
