Charming and Spacious Villa in Spongano

  • 5 of 5

Il Giardino degli Aranci is a charming villa, tucked away at the end of an alley, located centrally in the small town of Spongano. The villa is spacious; the accommodation is of a high-standard as described; and it is well furnished both inside and out. There are two internal courtyard gardens, one of which extends on another level to a pool area, both containing mature citrus trees. The bedroom accommodation is in three separated parts: two bedrooms in the main building, another two separated by the courtyard, and another on the rooftop above the main building. Altogether, it is spacious and functional.

The owners have renovated the property to a high-standard, and maintain it very well. It retains its attributes as a charming old stone villa equipped with modern conveniences, such as hi-speed wifi, dishwasher, washing machine, two fridges and numerous lights. As occupants are responsible for utilities which are expensive in this part of Italy, we were vigilant in ensuring that all lights and appliances were turned off overnight.

The kitchen area is very well equipped with appliances, crockery and cutlery, suitable for self –catering for part or all of the time. We spent much of the time dining alfresco using the large table in the main courtyard. This is also a pleasant area for pre-dinner drinks. From time to time, we had a few mosquitoes but, with the use of repellent, these were not too much of a problem.

We stayed there as a group of friends, consisting of three couples and three singles from Australia and the UK. We made numerous day trips to the nearby towns of Maglie, Castro, Tricase, Lecce, Otranto, and Galipoli. A car is essential. Navigating around the local roads and towns, and for that matter through the one-way systems of Spongano, is not easy without a smart phone. This part of Puglia is very authentic and not frequented by hordes of tourists. Although not overly scenic, it is an interesting destination with its own history, architecture and interlocking rural areas, two coastlines, and closely separated small towns. There are numerous pizzerias and small restaurants nearby, all with delicious food and good local wine.

Our host and hostess, Roberto and Patrizia, were very helpful. They are readily accessible and keen to help. For example, we arrived on a public holiday when all the local supermarkets were closed. To help us get started, Patrizia arranged for one of the nearby small supermarkets to open just for us.

Cosy and comfortable asylum with friendly owners

  • 5 of 5

The house is decorated with great care and offers a really high standard. The patio with a pool is a highlight, you can eat fruit straight from the trees. There's a cafeteria 50 m from the house, perfect for morning cafe and cornetto. Owners were very hospitable and helpful, gave us a lot of information about what to see and where to go. Having a dinner at Masseria Le Stanzie near Supersano is a must, for typical everyday meal I'd recommend an old style restaurant & pizzeria close to the railway station in Spongano. Unfortunately there's no sandy beach nearby, but it's worth to take a 30-40 km drive to beaches at Ionian sea or Laghi Alimini. I hope to be back in Salento someday!

Settimana indimenticabile

  • 5 of 5

Siamo arrivati dalla Germania (5 coppie, adulti) per visitare il Salento.

Siamo rimasti attirati dalle foto poste sul sito de "Il Giardino degli Aranci" ed abbiamo prenotato sperando di non rimanere delusi. Posso confermare che quanto abbiamo trovato é stato ottimo. Le foto rispecchiano esattamente la bellezza di questa casa. Nonostante l'etá della casa, abbiamo trovato tutto in ottimo stato e non ci é mancato nulla. Ma fin qui é tutto scontato per quello che si paga. L'unica cosa da perfezionare é il sistema di assortimento dei rifiuti. Non é molto chiaro per un ospite che si ferma poco tempo. Di eccezzionale c' é il servizio fornito dai proprietari: come fossimo membri della loro famiglia si sono interessati quasi giornalmente affinchè la nostra vacanza procedesse nel migliore dei modi. Utilissimi i loro consigli per le varie escursioni, per cenare o pranzare, ed ovunque eravamo, era sufficiente dire "ci manda Patrizia" per ottenere un servizio speciale. Da Spongano siamo arrivati senza problemi sia a Santa Maria di Leuca che ad Alberobello. Sono distanze che si possono consumare senza problemi. Un centro storico da visitare è Locorotondo (vicino ad Alberobello). Un altro consiglio che potrei dare sarebbe di arrivare a Calimera presso la Masseria San Biagio. Oltre ad assistere a come si produce la mozzarella (di bufala), si mangia da Dio. Ma bisogna andare con tanta fame siccome le porzioni sono enormi. Se poi si arriva a Corigliano d'Otranto, un altro ristorante da visitare é il "Ristorante dei Mille". Un'ottima cucina con i prezzi giusti. Per concludere, la migliore colazione si gusta naturalmente presso il Bar da Rocco, situato sul retro de "Il Giardino degli Aranci". Il barista più simpatico del Salento. Ciao Patrizia e Roberto e grazie per tutto.

Luigi e Adriana

Nice house and super warm welcome from the owners

  • 5 of 5

We had a really nice stay in Spongano. The house is spacious and the garden very cosy. It is a town house with all the specifics attached to it but it is fun and the kids loved it as everything was nearby. Patrizzia and Robert were super helpful to suggest the best places to visit, restaurants and beaches. They made our stay so much better. a keeper

Charming Villa!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful home and tastefully decorated. It was nestled in the old town of Spongano, which is lovely and relaxed. The villa was very spacious and perfectly accommodated us as were 2 families with children. We felt instantly at home. We loved exploring the Puglia region with old coastal towns and beautiful beaches that were pure and inviting at every turn. We were avoiding the industrialized tourism of the Amalfi coast, happily so. We could have spent more time in this region. We enjoyed al fresco dining for breakfast and dinner most days. It was idyllic.
