Super Villa and excellent hosts - Will definately return

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Poggiardo, the villa is beautiful and split over 3 floors - ideal for 2 families sharing as there is lots of space and several kitchen areas. The pool is a great depth for swimming and also for children and the sails provide great shade.

The owners were really welcoming and gave us great advise on local resturants and cafes, they also recommended a local company for a super boat trip.

The Villa is in the centre of this beautiful small town and has all you need, a supermarket is walking distance, a couple of pharmacies, several great places to eat and an amazing coffee shop/ice cream bar.

There is the biggest street market I have ever seen in the town on a Wednesday and you can buy everything here. Other days there is a butcher, a fish monger and a cheese and cured meat shop in the town.

Within a short drive are some beautiful beaches and sea caves to explore.

There is plenty of secure parking, bikes to borrow, table football and a pool table. You could never be bored here.

We will definitely re visit.

Thank you Andrea and Mary for a super holiday.

Our favourite place in our year of travel!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Andrea and Maria‘s incredible home on our year of travel! It was our very favourite place! We loved the quintessential southern Puglia town. Andrea and Maria went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and at home. Their recommendations were spectacular. The home is gorgeous and completely redone. The home would also easily accommodate two or more families or a group of people .

Poggiardo is a fabulous little town 3 miles from the ocean. We loved the Wednesday markets in town. We explored the whole region which is definitely our favourite area in all of Italy. This magnificent home full of beautifully renovated character would be an ideal place to stay and explore Puglia. We can’t wait to come back. We not only have fallen in love with the region, the town and the home, but we have also made new friends. 💗

Beautiful house and a very friendly owner

  • 4 of 5

Lovely house and an extremely friendly welcome from the owner. They even delivered Danish pastries to the morning coffee Sunday morning :-)

We only have a few things to notice.

No heat in the house when we arrived and even after the owner had turned it on, it did not work well. There were also several days with problems with the hot water. Often there was not enough hot water for everyone to get a bath.

In addition, all garden furniture needed a good cleaning and oiling.

These few things meant that the house does not fully live up to the impression you get when you read the description and see the pictures.

Owner's Response: 2th november 2017 - Jørgen, Thank You for your review. Strangely this year we had an exceptionally hot october. In fact when You arrived It was 28 degrees and people were still swimming in the sea and so unfortunately did not think at that moment that you may need heating. I do apologise. However the temperature is a personal choice and although I arriveded immediately after your request to put the heating on, I didnt have time to explain you properly how to increase or decrease the heat in each room because you left quickly to go to the wednesday market. Each room has its own radiator and a A/C with heating pump. Unfortunately when we put the radiators on which work on a gas system to fill the radiators with hot water, when one takes a shower its takes a few minutes before the hot water arrives. 'Apulia' system Most sorry but outwith my control. Regarding the oil for our sunbeds we do in fact pass oil at the beginning of spring but this year we had an exceptionally hot summer peaks of 50 degrees and so being end of season and you were our last clients so maybe the wood was a bit dry. I sincerely hope It didnt ruin your holiday. Take care.

PARADISE

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay at this historic property! Even before we arrived, Andrea was incredibly helpful with information about the area and answered all of my questions. He greeted us (my husband, 2 young children, and parents) upon arrival and showed us around the house. And, the house is beautiful, spacious, beautifully decorated and furnished, well equipped. The location was fabulous, as we could walk to many different restaurants, caffetteria, bakery and supermarkets. Near the house, there are several beautiful beaches within short driving distance. I would absolutely recommend this property to others looking to get a taste of one of Italy's finest regions; it was relaxing and beautiful and all that we had hoped for. Thank you!

Willkommen im Süden - Benvenuti Al Sud

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren Ende August/Anfang September 2015 für 2 Wochen mit Freunden und Kindern zu zehnt im Palazzo Umberto und haben bis jetzt gezögert eine Rezension zu schreiben, damit es ein Geheimtipp bleibt ;)

Vorweg: unser Grundsatz ist, nirgendwo ein zweites mal hinzufahren, da es so viele schöne Orte zu entdecken gibt. Dieses Jahr kommen wir allerdings wieder nach Poggiardo und freuen uns jetzt schon riesig – das sagt eigentlich alles.

Als wir das erste mal dort ankamen, war es sogar noch schöner als auf den Fotos – unglaublich. Der wunderschöne Palazzo liegt zentral in Poggiardo. Sämtliche Einkäufe können zu Fuß erledigt werden. Einmal pro Woche findet ein großer, typisch italienischer, Markt mit Kleidung, Accessoires, Haushaltswaren und Lebensmitteln statt – sobald man aus dem Haus geht ist man schon mittendrin.

Der Palazzo ist unglaublich groß und geräumig – die Terasse mit dem Grill lädt zum geselligen Beisammensein und gemeinsamen Essen ein, man kann sich aber auch gut zurückziehen, sei es an den Pool, auf die Dachterrasse, oder einfach in eines der geräumigen Zimmer. Alles ist sehr gut ausgestattet und als wir ankamen stand schon Kaffee und Obst bereit – sehr nette Geste.

Der Pool ist richtig groß und mit einer Art „leicht gesalzenem“ Wasser befüllt – kommt also ganz ohne Chemie aus. Der gesamte Bereich ist sehr gepflegt mit vielen Liegen und Sitzmöglichkeiten, wunderschön bepflanzt und alles ist sehr sauber mit viel Liebe zum Detail. Der Poolbereich und der Garten wird von Personal gereinigt und gegossen – wir haben allerdings nie jemanden gesehen oder gehört – alles war einfach immer schön sauber – ich denke mal, sie kamen immer frühmorgens.

Wir sind fast jeden Tag eine andere Bucht oder einen Strand mit dem Auto (es gibt im Haus private Parkplätze, Garage und sogar 2 Fahrräder) angefahren und haben auch sonst sehr viel besichtigt. Ganz egal wohin man gefahren ist – alle kleinen umliegenden Dörfer und Städte waren wunderschön und man fühlte sich überall auch sehr herzlich empfangen. Es gibt sehr viel zu entdecken und auch zum Entspannen – Maria hatte für uns anfangs auch gleich eine Liste mit ganz vielen tollen Ausflugs- und Restauranttipps.

Die Gastgeber Maria und Andrea waren immer erreichbar, wenn wir etwas brauchten, aber ansonsten sehr zurückhaltend, damit wir unseren Urlaub voll genießen konnten und uns fühlten, als wär der Palazzo unserer.

Für uns eine wunderschöne Zeit und wir freuen uns schon riesig wiederzukommen.
