Monte Sant' Angelo - The Gargarno, an uindiscovered gem

A UNESCO world heritage site, Monte Sant Angelo is an exciting and unique place to visit. The town itself contains remarkable features as to both its unique architecture and the historical and artistic sights. It is regarded as one of the most interesting examples in Apulia of a "settlement" perched on the crest of a hill; its buildings follow the level curves of the mountain without affecting the integrity of the landscape.

Nearby attractions are equally stunning. As you leave the town to the west you travel into the Foresta Umbra National Park, (or Forest of Shadows) which stretches right across the centre of the Gargano massif - 11,000 hectares of pines, oaks and beeches, hiding a rich variety of wildlife, roe deer and wild boar especially and is the last remnant of an ancient forest which once covered most of Puglia. The area was designated a national park in 1991 and there are various marked walks through the forest and a Centro di Visita (visitor centre) in the middle which hands out advice and information.

To the south, you travel down within 20 minutes to some of the quieter untamed beaches in Italy. Particularly outside of August you will find that you will have roads and beaches to yourself. Food in this area is absolutely fabulous with many restaurants and agro-turismos serving fresh local dishes. Local delights include lamb, kid, eel, orange and lemons salads, stuffed morsels, cheeses, broad beans, snail soup, grape and fig cordials, macaroni with goat's meat sauce...I could go on, but you must find out for yourself.

The house is new and fresh, garden is beautifully kept and pool lovely. You will immediately feel relaxed here as there is absolutely peace and quiet. Our boys age 8 and twelve enjoying the two friendly small dogs which was joyful. The surrounding beaches are among the cleanest we have ever visited. you find fish swimming around your feet! We are returning in 2017 for two weeks. Looking forward to visiting the place again.

A spacious, well-equipped and very clean house, just 3 minutes’ drive out of the town and uphill. A quiet and relatively secluded location (despite being so close to the town and beach), with a stunning view from the large terrace over the wide bay below. Antonia and Raphaelo, the local owners, were friendly, generous (fresh fruit from their trees, herbs from the garden and invited us for lunch on our last day) and were sensitive to our space and privacy. They own the attached flat next door, but remained in their house in the town during our stay. They spoke limited English, but their son Antonio, who lives in England, was always available by text or phone for any translations. He was also very helpful beforehand, sharing local knowledge and managing the initial booking. We were lucky enough to be there during a full moon which shone out over the water each night and, the one night we ate out at a beach restaurant, rose up out of the sea, a gorgeous deep orange. We had a wonderful time here. Mattinata is a fairly small, quiet, friendly town. The beach is stony - but small, easy to lie on, stones at the far south, public end. We parked in an olive tree grove/field marked for parking. When we aksed if we should pay before or after they waved us off and said we could leave the car for free. Just one example of many generous and friendly experiences we had in Gargano. Lovely walks from the house up into the surrounding hills, (after a short drive) through gentle woods and flowers up to Mont Sacro (orchids) and (after a longer drive) out from Monte San Angelo (a busy and touristy hill town) in the surrounding hills.

The apartment is great and the views are spectacular. If you can drag yourself away, the Gargano peninsular has lots to offer in the way of scenary, food and wine. The owners are very helpful and friendly and provide some excellent recommendations for visits and restaurants. Absolutely recommended.
