Both houses are beautifully furnished and well equipped and the garden has lots of little corners where one loves to sit down, relax and enjoy the peacefulness of the area. We were ten altogether and everybody - no matter what age - loved the site. Sandro and Ina were extremley helpful with all the questions we had concerning places to see, going out for dinner, horsebackriding a.s.o. They were always available and that made us feel very much cared for. The area is great and has many little towns nearby to discover. It was our first time in Puglia and we will come back for sure and then hopefully stay again with Ina and Sandro. Thank you so much! Nini
