Liamandrea a Torre VadoApartment - via Enrico Fermi n 15 - Torre Vado
It was a single large room, with solid walls, with two sober and decent rooms, divided between them by a neat colored curtain, shaded to the west by the pergola.
The "liama" (lámia in other areas of Salento) was initially intended as a shelter for agricultural tools, used by the settlers during plowing, sowing and harvesting, and to dry figs, tomatoes and aubergines during the summer season. . A vertiginous stone staircase, open in the void, led to the terrace (the liama, in fact), and from there the amphitheater of the sea opened, boundless to the view, surrounded by figs and the grandfather's vineyards, laden with robust grapes and black.
On moonless nights, an oil lamp cast long shadows over children's tales and the game of cards, while voices bounced among the thyme and rosemary shrubs, announcing the visit of a friend, with a bag swollen with frize, taralli with fennel and possessed peppers.
The "liama" is no longer there, and neither is the staircase that communicated with the stars, but the spirit of simplicity, hospitality and welcome of those who started this story in a memorable and distant time still lives.
Liamandrea is located in the center of Torre Vado, in via Fermi n 15, in a quiet area and close to a large and convenient parking, a few tens of meters from the summer emergency room, the pharmacy and the Services Area which, with the Lungomare Cristoforo Colombo hosts a bi-weekly market in summer and numerous food and wine, cultural and musical events as well as games and attractions for children.
The apartment is just under 300 meters from the rock, 700 meters from the beach and 500 meters from the "Spiaggetta", a very popular strip of sand not far from the tower and the port. Equally close, the Springs, a natural pool of fresh, cold and invigorating water. The beaches are all variously equipped.
