All problems sorted immediately by Luigi who is a lovely man and very welcoming. Appartment spotlessly clean. Garage close at hand - which was invaluable. Local Italians all very friendly and helpful. We loved Otranto and would not hesitate to return to the apartment.

Good to have a separate kitchen rather than the open-plan kitchen/living area that you get in so many holiday lets. The historic centre of Otranto is really nice (about 10 minutes walk away) - lots of restaurants to choose from (but it helps if you like seafood). While we were there, there was a "Sounds & Tastes Festival" (1st to 4th of June) which we enjoyed - heartily recommend that. Long sandy beaches north of Otranto (Alimini for one) and, to the south, Porto Badisco is a good spot for snorkelling.
