In the heart of Valle Della Cupa, in the immediate vicinity of the baroque Lecce, stands one of the most beautiful country mansions of the early 1900s. Designed by the architect Giuseppe Anguilla, Villa Ida welcomes us through a large entrance gate bordered by elegant columns; the path follows through a tree-lined avenue with numerous citrus trees that during the year alternate color and smell of orange blossoms. Two ornamental false pepper trees open onto the square, where we can admire the skilled work of the stonemasons who, in line with Baroque art and Moorish nostalgia, decorated the columns, arches and balustraded terraces with floral decorations. The large porch leads to the small private church and to the caretaker's house on the ground floor and to the main house on the first floor. The ground floor apartment consists of a living room, a kitchen-dining room with fireplace overlooking the internal patio, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms; on the first floor there is an entrance hall, a large room with exit to the veranda, a study, a living room-kitchen with fireplace and terrace, 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a laundry-pantry. The property is completely fenced and has approximately 2 ha of land. The land was once planted with vineyards and the storage of grapes, must and tanks are a fascinating testimony to this. Today the land, which is in perfect condition, is also ready for olive grove cultivation. Although the property is in good condition, it needs modernization of the facilities and revaluation of the delicate preciousness of this noble form of rural architecture.
