The small bathing resort of Torre Pali in the Salento is located between Gallipoli and Santa Maria di Leuca. This coastal stretch with its fine white sands and emerald green waters has been adorned with the appealing by-name "Maldives of the Salento".
The charming village is named after its landmark Torre Pali, a historic 15th century watchtower, which, like many of the still preserved Saracen towers in the Salento, is a reminder of the area´s turbulent past. Today, only the foundations of the historic watchtower are left to be caressed by the waves, a picturesque setting for many a holiday photo.
Due to their excellent water quality most of the beaches in the Salento fly the Bandiera Blu, the Blue Flag. It is for this Blue Flag, which is also found at the kilometers of beaches from Torre Pali up to Marina di Pescoluse, that owner Alessio has named his small holiday apartment by the sea.
Especially families with children are sure to love the gently sloping, fine sandy beach at Torre Pali.
Holiday apartment Bandiera Blu is located on the ground floor of an apartment complex on the edge of the village and accommodates two adults and up to two children.
Via the roofed terrace you enter the apartment, whose tasteful, functional furnishing and floors are held in warm earth colors and cool shades of gray and blue, which reflect the colors of the beach and the sea.
The cozy living area is furnished with a dining table and chairs as well as a sofa, which can easily be turned into a comfortable double bed. The kitchen unit (incl. gas stove, oven, refrigerator with freezer compartment, dish washer, espresso-maker) is separated from the living area by a half-wall.
The apartment includes two friendly bedrooms (double bed; bunk bed), which are accessible from the living area, and a bathroom (shower cabin/WC/bidet, hair dryer). You can store your belongings in spacious wardrobes with sliding doors.
Furnishing of Bandiera Blu also includes: SAT-TV (living area); free WiFi; fly screens in the windows and air conditioning in all the rooms; washing machine in the outdoor area.
A children's bed and a highchair can be provided upon request.
The highlight of the apartment is, without doubt, the spacious sea view terrace, where you can spend pleasant hours out in the open. An outdoor shower and a grill are also at your disposal in the outdoor area.
Parking: Parking spaces free of charge are found along the street, in the immediate vicinity of the apartment.
In July and August, the beautiful sandy beaches of Torre Pali are very popular with beach vacationers from all over Italy. Outside these two months, however, you can look forward to relaxing holidays there.
Just a few steps from Bandiera Blu, kilometers of gently sloping beaches await you. Free beach sections alternate with "lidos", the bathing beaches with sunshades, loungers and beach bars, which are very popular with Italians.
About 200 m off, there is a small mini-market, more shopping facilities are found at nearby Marina di Pescoluse (2 km off). Restaurants and bars are also found in the immediate vicinity and within walking distance of Bandiera Blu.
A special recommendation by Alessio is "Ristorante Stella del Mare", where fresh fish, bought at the local fishing harbor, is found on the menu every day.
During season, boats depart for the island of Fano, also known as Othoni, the westernmost Greek island, from Torre Pali harbor every day.
The small coastal town of Santa Maria di Leuca about 17 km from Torre Pali awaits you with an impressive Baroque basilica and colorful, partly oriental-like Art Nouveau villas.
"Café du Port" at the fishing harbor is where locals like to meet for a coffee and a chat. Do try a "caffé affogato" – an espresso with vanilla ice cream!
From October to May, you can try a very special delicacy there, as well as in many other places in Apulia: I Ricci, the salty-sweet inner part of sea urchins is a favorite with locals. Our tip for a culinary go at those spiny marine creatures is Bar da Carlo at Porto Badisco 45 km off.
Nearest train station: Salve-Ruggiano (ca. 12 km)
