Isabella writes: The magnificent and picturesque piazza in Vaste – tucked away in the heart of the Salento region in southern Italy – was only the beginning of our wonderful holiday at the guest house La Tana del Riccio.

Elegant and warm hospitality , spacious suites each dotted with unique objects and decoration, the Guest House was the perfect spot to start and end each day of exploration of one of the most beautiful coastlines in Italy. Within just a few minutes and up to one hour’s drive maximum, we were able to reach great beaches and typical villages.
The main room at La Tana del Riccio enabled us to meet and chat with the other guests, some of whom we are still in contact with today.

Definitely easy living! (And may I add that my three teenage daughters did not complain once!!).

One last note: let me stress the great beauty of the whole region which can be explored really any season. The coastal road from Otranto to Santa Maria di Leuca (on the very tip of the hill of the italian boot) is an experience one can never forget. Silence and Peace with incredible landscapes wherever you turn your look.
