This lovely house in Puglia was the perfect answer for our 3 week stay in Puglia. While the characteristics of the house are unique, comfortable and truly memorable, it was the interaction and attention we received from both the hosts as well as the caretakers which will be our most cherished memories. Questions about local stores, sights and restaurants were answered immediately and we enjoyed as many of the suggestions as we could fit in. The caretakers were wonderful in translating and interpreting my poor attempt at Italian and we enjoyed dining at their family's restaurant in the nearby village as well as being treated to a tour of the olive oil cooperative in our own village. All in all, we felt as though we have gained some wonderful new friends. The house was better than what is shown in the pictures, the grounds very well kept, and it is very well located for exploring both the Ionian and Adriatic coastlines.
We arrived in Gallipoli by train and were met by Vicenzo who kindly drove us to the apartment, which was light, spacious and well decorated. A real bonus was the lift, which takes you right into the apartment and a lovely touch were the bottles of wine and soft drinks awaiting us.
The 3 bedrooms were a good size with comfortable king sized beds. The bathrooms were fine, particularly the chic shower room on the top floor. The kitchen was well equipped with a dining table. There was good AC in all the rooms. However, the real delight were the 2 large terrace areas, surrounding the apartment, with dining, sitting and sunbathing areas, offering great views of the sea and old town, which is 20/25 minute walk away. There is a small supermarket very near and a hypermarket within walking distance. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend it for a great holiday in a most attractive town.
