Yet again stunning Salento has worked its magic on people from the silver screen. Italian news agency Ansa reports that French actor Gerard Depardieu is so besotted by the Puglia paradise that he wants to buy a house near Lecce, dubbed ‘the Florence of the South’

Depardieu is a frequent visitor to Salento, and has spent many happy hours as the guest of friends who own properties in the area. According to reports he is also a great fan of cucina salentina Salento cooking and loves visiting the restaurants of the area.

For an actor so rarely out of the papers, the beautiful Salento peninsula is a perfect choice and would allow him the peace and quite he craves as well as the chance to enjoy the beauty of the landscape and the warmth and hospitality of its people. And should M. Depardieu be considering a masseria for his dream home, then we would be only too happy to help!
