|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
The apartment is very spacious with large veranda and good sized bedrooms. The lounge is large containing seating for up to 6 people including a comfortable bed settee. The veranda which overlooks the swimming pool is large enough for a table and chairs as well as a couple of sun loungers. There is an electric point as well as a TV Aerial on the veranda so it is almost like another room and certainly as big. The kitchen contains a large fridge and reasonable size freezer so you can stock up for a few days. The apartment has air conditioning units that also double up as heaters out of season.
Outside the entrance to the complex are a few shops and a couple of restaurants. There is a small supermarket for everyday needs and a bar. We cannot guarantee that all these will be open before the middle of June and after the middle of September. A car is recommended.
There are two golf courses near the apartment. The nearest being about 10-15 minutes away at Metaponto and another one about another 10 minutes from there which is owned by the same people. They are open all year round. The Relais Du Golf is recommended by the PGA of Europe and the Puglia and Basilicata Open has been held there.
Live in Essex not far from Stansted Airport. We have two teenage daughters that love it here in San Basilio.
The girls have grown up coming here year and after year and feel it is home from home. As the Italians have come back every year we have got to know many of them including the people who own the shops and restaurants. They are all really helpful.
My daughters have always had there independence here as the restaurants are happy to serve groups of children and teenagers. This means we get quality time on our own as well as together as a family. The shuttle buses to the beach are great and the people who own the beach bars have also got to know us.
We have now visited this apartment twice and had the most relaxing break with beautiful weather. Our children, all teenagers, also loved it. The apartment is spacious, clean,well equipped and modern and overlooks the lovely large pool. The bars and restaurants are a couple of minutes walk away and there is a good variety of restaurants to suit all tastes(the butchers was our particular favourite).
We also walked to the beach several times and had lunch there which was also delicious. The beaches are clean and well kept with toilets close to hand too.
Would highly recommend this property.
Altogether a fantastic holiday, would definitely return.
We travelled to Italy full of anticipation and were not dissapointed. The complex was very safe which was reassuring as we have two young children. The location was in easy reach of beautiful places to visit, plus local amenities were enough fo essentials. The complex had entertainment for various ages, and the opportunity to nothing if preferred. The beach was clean and sandy, with cafes for your convenience. The apartment had shade on the terrace to relax during the hottest part of the day, and siesta was fantastic. The locals were very accomodating, and friendly, the lifeguards were attentive. My children loved the pool which is large and clean, and the weather although hot was comfortable, even for the fair skinned! We will return to the apartment at some stage as it made the holiday relaxing, yet with interest, and we didn't see all the things that area has to offer. The trip lefta lasting impression on ourselves and our children loved it.
Nous avons passé 2 semaines dans cet appartement.
Cet appartement est spacieux et contient tout le nécéssaire pour passer des vacances détendues.
La terrasse qui donne sur la piscine est sublime.
Le complexe propose de nombreuses activités et animations..
J'attends avec impatience de pouvoir y retourner.
De plus, la propriétaire est très sympathique et à l'écoute de tous nos besoins.
De très belles vacances !!!!
The house description is accurate and full. The apartament was clean and well furnished. Daughters towels and sheets were in good condition. The sea is near, and the swimming pool is a valid alternative.
The apartment is easily accessible from Bari. 40 minutes from the apartment is Matera that contains the Sassi where they filmed 'The Passion of Christ'. You can easily drive to the west coast through a National Park to visit places such as Maratea, Naples and Pompeii. To the east you have the towns of Alberobello, which contains the Trulli houses, and Locorotondo. The area is very unspoilt as it has not really become a tourist area and is mainly used by the Italians for their summer holidays. Although the coast is very flat it is only about 15 minutes before you reach the mountains and once at the top the views are glorious. There are several towns like Montescagliosa and Pomerico that are lovely and well worth the drive along the steep windy roads.
Other Activities: Other activities may be on offer in between June and September including pedalos and windsurfing
|Fees||No additional mandatory fees|
In the low season the pool will probably not be open. The beach will be extremely quiet but lovely although the first couple of weeks of June there maybe a few people around.
