Amazing stay at Casa Torchiano

5 of 5
We could not have asked for more during our stay at Casa Torchiano. The villa was incredible, with every amenity you could wish for. Trulli & Dimore provided everything that past villa companies have not even thought of, not to mention the lovely welcome bottle of wine and typical Puglian gift. Claudia was SO helpful. She went out of her way to secure a restaurant reservation that was not available to us without her help. She was constantly in touch with us throughout our time at the villa and helped to make our holiday fantastic. Thank you so much. We will be back next year.

absolutely fantastic

5 of 5
From the first contact with Louise until departure, everything was perfect. The apartment was exactly as described, the location wonderful in the centro storico in Monopoli, everything was clean and the apartment was well equipped. What we really appreciated were the beach towels, sun chairs and sun umbrellas for the beach so you do not have to rent in the Lido for a lot of money. Also washing machine and laundry rack on the terrace were perfect for us and the children. The contact person, Angela, was very friendly and helpful. Meeting at the meeting point and the receiving of the key was uncomplicated although our flight dates had changed. Louise provided lots of information before the trip so we already knew where there is a good bakery, which restaurant serves which food, where are lovely beaches and so on. For us it was the nicest apartment we had so far for our vacation and the booking was best organized. So many information are really helpful and we almost tried all in the two weeks of our vacation. Thank you very much Louise and saluti de Germania
