How wonderful it was to return to the Villa Elisabetta this summer (our 3rd stay)! It is still the calm, comfortable and welcoming place it was when we first stayed there 12 years ago. It was a bit like coming home after a long absence. Villa Elisabetta has two sites; one is in the historic center of Galatina (two rooms) and the other in the countryside about a 10-minute drive from Galatina through stone-lined roads and olive groves. The first time we came to Galatina (with our then 16 year old daughter), we stayed in town and went out to the country property to swim. It was great fun to be in the town, have breakfast in the local café and get a feeling for local life. The second time we visited, we stayed in the countryside and were delighted to be in a calm green oasis when we returned from long sunbathed days full of sightseeing. Enrico Inguscio, the "maître des lieux", has created and maintained a delightful B&B: calm, green, comfortable, and very welcoming. It is a small structure, just 6 rooms for the moment, with all the comforts of home including a lovely swimming pool, a well-kept tennis court, and parking inside the gates. The rooms are spacious and well appointed as are the bathrooms, and are organized for privacy. Everything is meticulously clean and well kept. Enrico is energetic and friendly - there when you need him or want to talk but discreet and respectful of his guests' privacy. The Wi-Fi and A/C work perfectly, so no worries there! Villa Elisabetta is great for couples and families. It is a perfect place to stay as a base when visiting the Sud Salento (Lecce, Otranto, and all of the Piccola Grecia). It's very central and not far from the sea. There is a "trullo" room in the garden if you want a romantic setting, a very spacious suite with an enormous terrace on the first floor of the main house, two rooms on the ground floor, and two large independent rooms in the garden as well. Enrico is building 5 new rooms on the other side of the property (it looks like they will be fantastic). Villa Elisabetta is open most of the year, so you can also stay there in the spring or the fall. What more can I say? If you are travelling to the Salento and are looking for an excellent B&B, STAY AT THE VILLA ELISABETTA!

A wonderful oasis in the centre of the Salento peninsula putting Gallipoli, Otranto and Santa Maria di Leuca all within easy reach Enrico was a superb host and great cook very helpful, even accompanying us to buy local wine. His cats also put up with our dog who was accommodated by moving us to a larger room without any extra cost After the two nights we spent at Villa Elisabetta we have resolved to return for a longer stay with friends

I generally don’t write reviews very often, but this time I must - and with pleasure - as we really had a wonderful time at Villa Elisabetta. Ideally located for the best sights and beaches in Salento - Lecce and Gallipoli less than 20mins away. Furthermore, Galatina itself is very pretty. We stayed at the “Suite”, a very large room with its own kitchen and massive terrace from where you could see all the surroundings. Nice and clean swimming pool and garden, with beautiful palm trees. One of the best parts is definitely the silence and peace. You could only hear birds, literally nothing else. So, if you are after a relaxing and peaceful holiday, this is the place! Above all, however, we would like to thank Enrico, the owner, who made us feel like old friends – really helpful, he always left us with a smile with his wit and kindness. I truly hope we will be going back to Salento very soon, and staying at Villa Elisabetta again.

Gentilissimo e carissimo Flavio di Londra , ti rispondo in italiano perché so che lo parli molto bene . Voglio ringraziarti con il cuore in mano per aver definito il nostro Hotel Villa Elisabetta un piccolo Paradiso.Avere Ospiti d'eccellenza come Voi , ci sprona ad andare avanti e mantenere la struttura esclusivamente , riservata ai nostri magnifici Ospiti nel silenzio e nella pace che il luogo merita. Villa Elisabetta l'abbiamo concepita così, lontano dalla città caotica, dai rumori e dagli occhi indiscreti, vogliamo che gli Ospiti si sentano a casa propria, nella totale privacy ed indipendenza, godere il massimo della libertà nella campagna salentina e risvegliarsi col cinguettio degli uccelli. Un saluto ed un abbraccio , Enrico.
