Luxury Historical Villa in Monteroni di Lecce - An Elegant Oasis of History and Beauty

Situated in the tranquil countryside of Monteroni di Lecce, a short distance from the bustling city of Lecce, this charming English-style villa is a rare opportunity. The property extends over one hectare of lush garden, offering an unparalleled living experience.

With a surface area of approximately 726 sqm, this historic mansion is spread over three floors. The ground floor welcomes guests with a spacious entrance hall, a spacious kitchen and two bathrooms. A majestic wooden staircase leads to the first floor, where you will find four bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. On the second floor, two more bedrooms and a bathroom complete the spacious layout.

Villa Saetta boasts a fascinating history. Originally a masseria inhabited by a religious hermit, known as the monk Saetta, it was transformed into a sumptuous country residence by the Duke of Taurisano and Baron of Monteroni di Lecce in the last century. The mansion is embellished with details that tell its story, including the coat of arms of the noble family that owned it and the inscription 'Fluctuat nec mergitur' ('it floats but does not

sink'), a motto that recalls the city of Paris and has special meaning for the family.

Over the years, Villa Saetta has served as a refuge for important American and German soldiers during World War II, as well as a meeting place for family and their guests. The villa secretly hosted those who could not be accommodated in the main residence in Lecce. Tales of forbidden loves and extraordinary discoveries are intertwined with its history, making every corner of this mansion full of charm and mystery.

Today, you can transform Villa Saetta into your oasis of luxury and history. Imagine dining and holding soirees in the stately salon, as the owners did at the time, while sharing these fascinating stories with friends and family. The English-style wood panelling and spacious, finely manicured woodwork create a unique atmosphere.

Your family can enjoy the outdoor spaces, run among the ancient trees in the garden and create precious memories. Our specialised estate agency is ready to turn your dream into reality. Contact us today for a viewing appointment.
