Welcome to Villa Odetta
Villa Odetta is the ideal holiday home in the Salento region for those willing to spend their holidays by the sea, surrounded by pure nature in a peaceful and small village called Torre Colimena, a seaside town part of the Manduria district, near the famous beach of Punta Prosciutto.
The holiday home consists of 3 levels with a total of 5 apartments but totally independent from one another. Each apartment has bedrooms, dining kitchen, living-room, bathroom and a spacious outside area.
Through a spiral stairs you reach the solarium where you can enjoy a 360 degree of a splendid panoramic view. You can appreciate the Jonio sea, the Mediterranean scrub, the small port, the ancient sighting tower, the Natural Reserve protected by Salina dei Monaci (a natural salt pan) and the beach of the same name and all that surrounds Villa Odetta, making sunbathing without leaving home.
In 1992 I was invited to New Canaan, an hour by train from New York to visit the masterpiece of architect Philip Johnson.
This place struck me so much that I never forgot it.
Well in 2001 I met in Cotê d'Ivoire a group of nice Apulians with whom I spent some wonderful days. The group sang their land and the year after my wife and I decided to visit them. They found us a room at the Tabù baths of Porto Cesareo. We stayed for two weeks and then we moved to Galatina. Practically every afternoon we changed places of discovery. Lecce, Nardò, Taranto, the seaside villages including Torre Colimena. And right there the Glass House of Philip Johnson appeared to me, but close to the sea. So in 2015 it became ours and after two years it was ready to receive guests too.
We were knocking down the garage when we found traces of an ancient building of which the only one who knew something was an old fisherman of the place who told me about when he was a child and with his family lived in a portico. All during the passage of tuna. He also brought me the photo where you could see a 200 kg tuna hanging from the ceiling. The tuna was washed, quartered with a huge knife and then beheaded with a cleaver. The man involved in this job was his dad. The work took place quickly, the refrigerator did not yet exist.
