It is situated on the top floor of a beautiful palazzo, with a lovely terrace with a pretty outdoor dining area (there is also an indoor dining room). The apartment is immaculately clean, tastefully furnished, very comfortable and is well equipped. Even beach towels, a beach umbrella and sun block are provided. Donatella and Francesco seem to have thought of everything you might need to enjoy your stay. Given the proximity of the Duomo, the large opening doors onto the Duomo square are all completely soundproof, you hear nothing of the hustle and bustle, or Duomo bells once they are shut. The air conditioning works well so there is no need to leave windows open during the night. The apartment exceeded our expectation and we would highly recommend it. We used a hire car, which we were able to leave conveniently in a public car park about 8 minutes’ walk from the apartment. It was open 24 hrs and only 5 euros per day. We made a block payment so could come and go as we pleased. Francesco kindly met us at the carpark and drove us and our luggage to the apartment, and did the same on our return journey (only registered cars can enter the old city where the apartment is located). There are 62 steps up to the apartment from street level, which are easy enough going up and down, but may be a struggle if people have difficulty with stairs.

The apartment is situated in a quiet location just off the main piazza and we were able to walk to all the main sites of interest and many excellent restaurants. Maurizio was the perfect host, he met us at the bus station when we arrived from Brindisi Airport via the Pugliairbus and very kindly took us back to the train station when we left. He made us very welcome and it was a perfect start to our journey round Puglia. Thank you, Maurizio, for all your kindness.
