About Sandra Casadei
We are from Faenza, a lovely town in the heart of the Romagna region of Italy. We love to travel by taking time, exploring and getting lost, and that's pretty much how we found this house. Life has brought us to a city very far away, so now we share our vacation home with all the fellow travelers that prefer experiencing over visiting.
Sandra Casadei purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Sandra Casadei chose Galatone
Some years ago we grew friends with a lot of people originally from the Lecce province. Their flamboyant enthusiasm for their roots and their stubbornness in declaring that Salento was the most beautiful place in the world was almost annoying, so we decided to travel there to prove them wrong. From that time, we never went anywhere else to spend our summers. We discovered Galatone thanks to one of those friends, and we decided that this very southern and friendly town was the perfect place where to finally find our future "buen retiro". Not only it is ideally located near all the main local attractions while far enough from the madding tourist crowds, Galatone is also an architectural gem with great, simple restaurants where to enjoy the true local recipes.
What makes this Apartment unique
While walking to Santino's Trattoria for a drink with our friends, we noticed the clearly abandoned property just next door and what seemed to be the nicest little terrace overlooking the narrow street. Thanks to Santino, the word of mouth started and the following day we were able to visit the house. Its unusual and unique configuration and the incredible amount of terrace space instantly captured our imagination and our hearts. A few months later, we were starting its restoration and counting the minutes separating us from our first toast on the terrace.
