The landlady "Ramona" welcomes guests well, making them feel at home! The property is nice and clean, lacks a swimming pool to spend some afternoons without having to go back down to the sea. Good value for money.

Immersed in the heart of Salento, in Aradeo, in the countryside rich in olive trees and fruit trees, Villa Silmona appeared to us immediately as the perfect place from where to start our excursions to the most renowned locations, such as Santa Caterina, Porto Selvaggio, Sant’Isidoro, famous for the clean and crystalline sea, and to reach towns and villages of great history and beauty like Galatina, Cutrofiano, Maglie, and Gallipoli. The accommodation was excellent, with our room equipped with air conditioning, fridge, and every other comfort, and an adjacent outdoor sitting area under a sturdy canopy, where you can engage in conversation, reading, and, for those who wish, using a computer. In addition to the carefully prepared breakfast by Ramona, the hostess, with Puglian sweets and cakes, we appreciated the possibility of using the adjacent kitchen and the tables under the porch where we refreshed ourselves upon returning from the sea. Pleasant the (voluntary) sharing with Silvio, Ramona's husband and co-owner of the property, of some moments of farm life such as the aeration of chickpeas and the processing of tomato clusters that, together with the large prickly pear leaves, adorn some corners of the pleasant building. The stay is also ideal for families with children due to the presence of a cheerful chicken coop – I myself had fun feeding the hens – and some cute pets. Giving a value judgment on the quality/price ratio, this is definitely more than positive. The friendliness of the hosts is such that, when leaving, you already know that if you can, you will return to Villa Silmona because Salento never ceases to amaze.

Stunning place, immersed in nature, exceptional hosts, unforgettable breakfast with pastries made by Ramona, and fresh local fruit. We were very impressed by the attention to detail and cleanliness throughout the property. Ramona and Silvio are two amazing people. Highly recommended.

We were welcomed by the warmth of Ramona and Silvio, always kind and helpful, ready to help you even with aspects not related to hospitality. They maintain the structure with extreme care and cleanliness; the room is comfortable but slightly spartan. The location requires moving around by car for anything. Good value for money. For breakfast: 'Ramona, with all the good things you prepare and sell: a little tasting for breakfast instead of packaged products: -) said with sympathy'.

Very pleasant stay, very clean and comfortable room. Bucolic and well-kept structure in detail, ideal for weekends or relaxing stays. Exemplary, friendly, welcoming and helpful managers for any eventuality. I would come back. Highly recommended.

Ramona and Silvio are excellent hosts. The room is cozy and well furnished, and the outdoor spaces are also managed with extreme care. Remarkable is the veranda built on the upper terrace: cool and breezy even in the middle of August, it can be used to relax during the day or have dinner at sunset. The small but well-equipped communal kitchen is very convenient. The location is ideal to enjoy the Ionian beaches and discover the inland villages.

We are on our way back from Salento and this year, just like two years ago, we chose to return to Silvio and Ramona who, with their simplicity and kindness, made us feel at home. Silvio's morning public relations at breakfast and Ramona's fantastic breakfasts will be unforgettable. We already miss you! A special greeting from Jessica and Fabio.

It's been almost a month since we left the wonderful Salento and not a day goes by without us remembering, with so much joy, our stay at Villa Silmona. Beautiful structure, very well equipped, located in a charming landscape in the Salento countryside among olive trees, orchards, and strawberries. In a strategic point to visit all of Salento. Ramona and Silvio are perfect hosts. They welcomed us with so much warmth, kindness, patience, humanity, and sympathy. Every corner, every gesture, and word gave us the strong feeling that everything is done with heart. How can we not return to Villa Silmona and Salento!

Bella struttura molto ben attrezzata: le camere sono ampie, fresche d'estate e calde d'inverno, dotate di frigorifero; sono disponibili anche un comodissimo angolo cottura comune, tavoli all'aperto e una lavatrice. L'accoglienza da parte dei gestori è straordinaria e le torte fatte in casa servite a colazione indimenticabili!

Struttura molto accogliente, alcune stanze hanno il bagno forse un po' piccolo, ma nel contesto soddisfacente. La gestione è fatta da Ramona e Silvio, che sono veramente eccezionali. Ho parenti nel Salento ed in particolare ad Aradeo, ma sono andato ed andrò sempre a Villa Silmona perché sono rimasto particolarmente colpito dalla struttura, dalla sua ubicazione (a pochi minuti dal paese) e dall'accoglienza dei proprietari.
