The best way to experience this is by renting self catering accommodation in Alessano.

Lacking a few essentials in the kitchen, such as a microwave and the little things at home you take for granted. But overall a nice place that can easily house a family of four-six. Terrace, roof terrace and not too far from the sea (20 min drive).

The bedrooms are a generous size (easily fitted the travel cots and other baby paraphernalia) and the bathroom and kitchen are clean and modern. The living space is minimalist but was ideal for the kids to toddle around. Loved the outdoor eating space especially - lovely for a shady breakfast and evening drinks. The pool is also ideal for kids as it's raised, meaning it's very safe. It's a very quiet peaceful spot with hardly any traffic. Cutrofiano (nearest little town) is very pretty and highly recommended for dinner or a gelato in the square. It's only 20 mins from Galipolli which has a lovely historic centre and beautiful beaches. On the opposite coast Otranto was also gorgeous. The owner (Rory) is super helpful, as is the local contact Dave. I would definitely recommend this villa if you are looking for value for money.
