Barbara's apartment was bright spacious with fabulous panoramic views of the Adriatic from the extra large south facing terrace and interesting urban views from the bougainvillea shaded corner terrace. We were greeted by Gianni who showed us around the property and presented us with a gigantic bowl of fruit and a lovely bottle of wine. Gianni came to our aid on a couple of occasions during our stay ..when key got stuck in lock.. and he very kindly sourced a car for us for three days when none seemed available in Otranto. I'm guessing the property may have been new to the letting market as whilst there was quite an" eclectic "selection of kitchen items there were a few "gaps" e.g.a kettle, a tea pot, a coffee pot,decent sized cups. The bedrooms were spacious, high ceilinged and pleasantly furnished though my travelling companion remarked that they may have been more suitable for children than adults.Both bathrooms were spotless and bright. The old town of Otranto and the lovely port area were a most pleasant 20 minute walk from the apartment passing the crescent shaped sheltered beach on the way. The water was quite shallow making it very safe for all age groups. A left turn outside the apartment brought you to 2 smaller beaches where the sea was more tidal and also was the starting point to an amazing coastal walk. There was a very well stocked supermarket within 10 minute walk and the restaurants and coffee shops in and on the way to the old town were friendly and of a good standard. For travelling around Puglia a car is necessary. Outside of high season the trains and buses are not reliable Only we are fond of walking and we liked the idea of getting our daily exercise walking to and from the old town we would have been very disappointed that we could nt hire a car in the town. A lovely destination that definately merits another visit !

Giuseppe was kind enough to allow to have a booking from Tuesday-Tuesday. We did pay for the extra days though. Apartment is clean and new built. Sebastiano was great help and a wonderful help to anything we needed. The downstairs bedrooms were hot without aircon, but they supplied us with 2 extra fans. Pool area was clean very clean and spacious and the pool water was fantasticly clean. Apartments are close to supermarkets and easy enough to walk to into Otranto. Otranto was great with great food almost everywhere. There is the odd disappointment in what you order. The only thing I would have changes was the pool hours. The pool was closed between 2-5pm. Most of the time we were at the beach anyway so it wasn't a bother. However, the days the kids were too tired to travel it would have been nice to be up there and taking it easy. Great place I do recommend it and I loved Otranto as well. I will definitely return again. Don't order the insalada Verde (green salad) unless you want a bowl of lettuce only, lol.
