The property was beautiful, it has been freshly renovated and the decor is very elegant with great attention to detail. The kitchen had all the utensils we needed for cooking simple meals.The outside terrace is spacious and provides both shade and sun throughout the day. We felt very well looked after during our stay. Our host booked taxis to and from the airport. We loved the homemade biscuits that were waiting for us upon our arrival. We had no transport when we were there and they kindly bought groceries from the supermarket and delivered them to us. We felt the service provided was truly excellent.The apartment is in a great location with a shop selling bread, eggs, milk, salami, cheese etc within a 2 minute walk and also a bakery selling fresh croissants and delicious foccacia bread. There is a rocky beach 20 metres from the apartment and plenty of sandy beaches within a ten minute walk. Our two little boys loved playing on the beach and in the sea. There are beach bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. We visited at the end of May, it was very quiet and peaceful at this time of year and we had an amazing holiday.
We loved our stay at Casa Lorenzo, excellent location with two fantastic beaches on the doorstep (a stone’s throw away!), restaurants, beach bar and mini market all in close walking distance but this is still a very relaxed area where locals also enjoy peace and relaxation sitting outside their appartments, and gather in the evenings on folding chairs to watch the sea and chat, it’s fantastic for people watching! Just a short walk or drive to the lovely port of Villanova and many other areas of interest within short driving distance; Ostuni is the closest larger town and popular with tourists with its beautiful historic centre, excellent for strolling and meals in the evening.
As for the apartment - we loved it! Lovely, quirky decoration with all amenities we needed, over 3 floors with a steep staircase up to the terrace so reasonable level of mobility needed. The roof terrace was fantastic, large with a wonderful view of the sea, chairs and loungers provided (and owners kindly provided beach umbrella and chairs for us to use on the beach). Excellent air con in bedroom.
Marco and his mum are delightful people, so kind and helpful and it was a pleasure staying at their cottage. We’d highly recommend this accommodation and area and would like to thank Marco and his mum for a wonderful holiday! We hope to be back one day!
Grazie! Emma and Phil
