COOEE (“come here” in Australian aboriginal language) Surf House is a 450m² villa surrounded by 1 hectare of nature in the typical Apulian countryside made of olive trees and eucalyptus. It’s located in North Salento, nearby the town of Lizzano, in the province of Taranto, between the village and the Ionian Sea.
From here it’s really easy to reach by car all the most beautiful and interesting places of the region, like Lecce, Gallipoli, Bari, Leuca, Matera, Otranto, Alberobello, Brindisi, Taranto, Vieste etc…!
We have recently renovated and furnished a part of our wonderful villa, in order to create a cozy apartment where we offer hospitality to our guests. The apartment is fully equipped with everything necessary for a pleasant stay; bedroom with parquet, living room with kitchen, private bathroom, indoor and outdoor shower, wi fi internet and a large private parking. Our guests can also relax outside, on the beautiful veranda and in our huge garden. Staying by us you will have all the privacy and tranquility you want for your holiday, and at the same time the security that comes from not being completely isolated as we live in another area of the same villa and we can help you for any need. Walking distance from the house you can also find some local restaurants where you can have breakfast/lunch/dinner and taste our great local food and wines!
In 2016 and on other occasions Apulia, our region, has been elected by “National Geographic” and “New York Times” as best value travel destination in the world.
“It is among the best travel destinations in the world, for rhythms of life, beaches, traditions and beauty of places. And these are just some of the good reasons to go there.” Lonely Planet about Apulia.
All year long warm and sunny weather, crystal-clear water, great food, wine, culture and traditions, magic places and gorgeous landscapes, historic ancient cities to visit… all this far away from the crazy crowds and heavy tourism classic destinations.
COOEE is also the home of A.S.D. Vivere il Tao Italia, who has been organizing surfing, tai ji, massages, Bates method courses since the ’90s. We are absolutely not a busy surf school focused on quantity instead of quality! Our surf lessons are especially dedicated to our guests and we work in a truly sustainable way, respecting the environment and the local community of which we are a part. Surfing for us is a pure passion and a way of life, and not a dirty business or a mainstream/extreme/action sport for “cool people” only!
You can enjoy with us your holiday not as a simple tourist. We will share with you all the love for our land and discover wonderful unknown places that only locals know!
