Fantastic! Great flat with lots of space and super nice.

5 of 5
Usually bookings are done from Saturday to Saturday. 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.

Ottimo soggiorno in Otranto

5 of 5
La valutazione massima data all'appartamento deriva dal fatto che lo abbiamo trovato del tutto corrispondente alla descrizione inserita nell'annuncio, apprezzandone soprattutto la grande terrazza, dove abbiamo praticamente passato tutto il tempo in cui siamo stati in casa, salva le ore di sonno, ovviamente.
