Last autumn was so hot in Salento, it seemed more like summer, also because there were still people sunbathing and swimming in the sea, and we were not an exclusion)) At the beginning of November a company of my friends from Ukraine came to visit me, so we rented a villa near the sea in Torre Suda and in order to spend more time together and to have more fun, we also stayed there with our friends, even if there were 10 of them, there was no problem with the space, as there are 5 bedrooms in the house, each had a conditioner, and the parking area was absolutely spacious, we had 3 cars and there was still place for one more).
