The small bathing resort of Torre Pali in the Salento is located between Gallipoli and Santa Maria di Leuca. Due to its fine white sands and emerald green waters this coastal stretch 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.
Your holiday apartment is located on the ground floor of a apartment complex and accommodates two adults and up to two children. Via the roofed terrace you enter the bright apartment, whose plain, yet tasteful interior 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 functional and small, but fine kitchenette, which includes gas stove, oven, refrigerator with freezer compartment, dish washer as well as espresso-maker, is separated from the living area by a half-wall. There is also a high chair for small guests. The apartment includes Sat-TV in the living area and free WIFI access.
The two friendly bedrooms of the apartment are accessible from the living area. The larger one is furnished with a double bed, the smaller one with a bunk bed for two. A baby cot is provided upon request. Spacious wardrobes with sliding doors complete the well planned layout.
The bathroom is equipped with shower cabin, WC, bidet and hairdryer. All the rooms are furnished with air conditioning as well as fly screens in the windows.
A washing machine in the outdoor area and an outdoor shower complete the functional conveniences of the beach apartment.
Parking spaces free of charge are found along the street running past the complex.
The highlight of the apartment is, without doubt, the spacious sea view terrace, which is furnished with a table as well as a barbeque and where you can spend pleasant evenings with family and friends.
In July and August, Torre Pali with its paradise-like, gently sloping sandy beaches is 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 your door kilometers of gently sloping, fine sandy beaches await you and your family. Free beach sections alternate with “lidos”, the bathing beaches with parasols, sunbeds and beach bars, which are very popular with Italians.
200 meters 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 your apartment.
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.
