It was very clean, well maintained and very well equipped. The owner Francesco was very helpful and friendly and he left us some treats in the fridge for our arrival. Due to the time of year the town was very quiet but there were enough restaurants and shops open. I would not hesitate in recommending this apartment or staying again.

The apartment is spacious and well-equipped. It is served by a private lift and offers a basement lockup for the car. Vincenzo could not have been more helpful and responded to our occasional questions very swiftly. Gallipoli is a real pleasure with lidos and beaches within walking distance. The apartment is about half an hour's walk of the old town with its many restaurants. We would certainly return to the town and the apartment in the future.
