                                              We loved this apartment - it has everything you need for your holiday. It's beautifully decorated, well equipped, spotlessly clean and there's even bikes for pottering around on. Giusy and Tomasso are great hosts, from the moment we arrived they were so helpful and friendly with loads of tips for places to eat and visit. Otranto is beautiful and this apartment has a great location and is also great value. Slainte!

                                              It gives me great pleasure to write a review on our lovely apartment in Otranto. My sister and I travelled from Australia and I must say that we were a little nervous booking and paying for an apartment so far away, but we need not have worried, everything was superb! The apartment itself was spotlessly clean, all the necessities of life were provided and a good range of books and DVDs in English. Audrey and Davide could not have been more helpful. They only live a few kilometres away and encourage their guests to contact them at any time. My sister and I stayed for 2 weeks and Otranto itself is really beautiful. The old city is lovely with really nice shops. Restaurants are excellent and there is a supermarket 10 mins away for those nights when you want to stay in. We did not have a car but this was not a problem as the train station is only 15 mins away providing a good service to Lecce. We caught the train up to Alberobello for a few days as there was a religious festa there and it was spectacular. We had to change trains a few times but it was really easy. Because it was the end of the season (we stayed mid September until the end of September) a lot of activies had been suspended for the season, but that was no problem, as Davide stepped in and drove us to Leuca at the tip of the heel and another day he drove us to Gallipoli. Davide is charming and very easy to talk to and we had two lovely mornings with him learning all the history etc. I can not recommend this apartment, or the owners, strongly enough as there is not one adverse thing that I can think of - they even provide a toaster! - unheard of in Italy. Otranto is a beautiful, peaceful place and I was really sad to leave. We had a little beach about 5 mins walk away with lovely sand and clear water. On the walk into town there is also another beach which was very popular for swimming. We used to walk down to the bars just outside the old city and have a couple of drinks before dinner and watch the passing parade in the park opposite. I would definitely recommend this apartment, Otranto, Audrey and Davide and the whole experience to anyone who wants to discover the real italy away from hordes of tourists! Thank you Audrey and Davide for a really lovely holiday in Otranto!
