About the villa

Le More is set on as private country estate of 24 acres, close to the coast, mid-way between Otranto and Santa Maria di Leuca, just 2km from restaurants and shops in the village of Spongano. Formerly a hunting lodge, the lovely old house has been transformed to offer high standards of comfort. Beautifully furnished in traditional style, its creamy white walls form a blank canvas for tapestries, rugs and eclectic paintings. Big sofas and quiet lamp-lit corners adorn the living areas, a charmingly rustic kitchen diner is fitted with modern appliances, and wrought iron beds bring character to stylishly simple but spacious guest rooms, with five in the main house and two in a separate garden suites, each complete with air conditioning and its own shower room. Affording equal emphasis to al fresco living, the house boasts a romantically styled dining terrace set in garden courtyard, a roof-top gazebo overlooking the gorgeous gardens of 4 acres, and a sail-shaded sitting area, gazing out through the olive grove. A pergola pathway, cloaked in roses, crosses the lawns beside the large swimming pool, and a private tennis court shares the grounds with citrus and cherry trees. The charming village of Spongano is approximately a flat 20 minute walk from the property for energetic walkers.

This fascinating property is much appreciated by CV clients for the consistent standard of the bedrooms and shower rooms, the privacy and the quiet surroundings, the excellent service offered by the villa staff and the excellent inexpensive restaurants in Spongano, in the surrounding villages and at the coast.

About the area


Average weather

Italy’s sun-kissed south is remote and quiet, with a gorgeous coastline and perfect summer weather that make relaxing in your villa that teeny bit better. Go beyond the lazy villa days, and this southern beauty has a wealth of culture and history that’s just waiting to be explored. Towns here are UNESCO-listed and its tiny trulli houses are world-famous. Discover an olive-tree studded countryside, relax in rural masserias, admire mysterious works of architecture and spend every day indulging in the most simple, but soul-stirring, food.


Please note that there is a European tourist tax payable on arrival. Further details will be advised prior to arrival.

Having a barbecue in Italy is one of the best ways to cook your food but you may find that due to long drought periods in high season barbecuing may be restricted in some areas. You will be informed if this happens by your house staff or local representative.
