The 4-star Villa Raffaella is a charming 19th-century villa on the Adriatic coast in Puglia, "Italy's sun-bleached heel" (Lonely Planet).

The hotel is two minutes' walk from the beach in Santa Cesarea Terme, a coastal town known for its thermal baths, which are open from May-November. The hilltop town of Castro, where there's a ruined castle and a cathedral that dates from the 12th century, is less than 15 minutes' drive away. You can also explore the cities of Otranto, Santa Maria de Leuca and Lecce -- all within 50 minutes' drive. 

The property is surrounded by large gardens and has a sea-view terrace. All rooms have air conditioning, heating, a safe, a coffee machine, a TV and free Wi-Fi.

The hotel has the potential to be a nice, it would mainly need to make some effort on warming the atmosphere, the view is amazin and hotel building has a lot to offer if it is refreshed and thought as a welcoming hotel
Other Comments
Very empty room, no comfort, doesn’t look welcoming, cold atmosphere, no decoration, the room was too big and we had the impression to be in an hospital.
