The most obvious thing about this apartment is the sea. The view from the large and well equipped terrace is amazing and ever changing, from the rocks to the old town and the hills beyond it. We spent hours here eating, sipping the local wines or simply soaking in the feel of the town.
The apartment itself is very comfortable and well equipped. Both bedrooms have ample storage. The shower room was great and the kitchen has everything you need. Although there were so many options to eat out we only cooked one meal.
The apartment has air conditioning but being so close to the sea there is usually a nice breeze and the traditional Italian shutters mean that the flat is well ventilated.
There is ample free on street parking and we always found a space immediately outside the apartment. There is also a garage under the block, but we didn’t use it.
There a plenty of specialist shops in the town and a supermarket about 300m away.
Otranto is a charming and popular holiday town. The old town has beautiful narrow cobbles streets lined with shops, bars and places to eat. The castle, cathedral and town walls are all impressive and there is plenty to see.
Access to the town is easy- the first bar and beach is just a 10 minute stroll away, and another 5 minutes puts you in the heart of the town.
Otranto has plenty of free beaches as well as paying service beaches with beds and umbrellas for hire.
We had a great time here and will probably come back to Otranto -and this apartment- at some point in the future.
Grazie Pino! For being such a great host.
We were met by Fernanda who gave us a tour of the apparent and presented us with some delicious pasticciotto.
The apartment itself is absolutely huge, something that maybe doesn't come across in the photos. All rooms are very tastefully decorated, furnished and air conditioned.
The kitchen is very well stocked with not only all utensils and cutlery you could need, but also some breakfast items.
The terrace was perfect for a morning coffee.
The location was ideal for us and it was the perfect mix of quiet and convenience, being only a 5 to 10 minute walk from the old town. Parking on the street is free, although it is quite busy, we never had an issue finding a spot.
The only reason we could not score our experience 5 stars was that there is an issue with the apartment that while Fernanda did everything she could to help, was not resolved during out stay and meant that we could not fully access the gas cooker or hot water.
Overall, we had a great experience.
