We received a warm welcome from Marina, who was waiting for us at the apartment, which overlooks the small Piazza Porto and the picturesque port. The attractive old building in which the apartment is situated faces the large Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II surrounded by oleander trees, which really comes to life at night when crowds come out to enjoy the comparative cool of the evening. The apartment itself is very well equipped and has lots of information about the area and details of restaurants and other amenities. We shall long remember breakfast on the balcony and the breathtaking view of the small port with the ever changing colours. We cannot speak too highly of Marina and her husband Lino who were readily available to help but never intrusive. We really appreciated the home grown apricots and cherries together with home made jam and cheese which they kindly provided in such abundance.As keen gardeners we enjoyed being taken to the area where the various fruit trees grew together with tomatoes and courgettes. To sum up Giovinazzo is not a tourist area in the accepted sense, is relatively quiet and the old town has a charm of its own. It was lovely to see the local people and families coming out at weekends in large numbers to enjoy various locally organised events. Thank you Marina and Lino for a truly memorable two weeks.
The house was spotlessly clean, with all possible necessities provided as well as numerous extra snacks. The position so close to the water, yet extremely quiet, is perfect, with restaurants, bars and supermarkets within easy reach. We walked to dinner several times, enjoying the coastal atmosphere and the sea breezes. The house was spacious, light, sunny and very secure, and the outside area was just as spacious, with sun lounges and room to park our car safely behind locked gates. We were greeted with warmth by Enzo and his mother, and given a great deal of information about the local area, which contributed enormously to the enjoyment of our stay. We discovered that Santo Spirito was a great base from which to explore many other places of interest within reach, by both car and train. Gwen and Geoff, Australia
