We had a wonderful 10 day holiday at the Garden of Citrus, it really was just what we needed.
Maria Rosaria and her husband were there to meet us and showed us where everything was and how things worked; there were maps of the local area and recommendations for things to see. Maria Rosaria was contactable by text throughout our stay and when we had a problem with the lock on the gate her husband came out almost immediately to resolve the issue.
The accommodation was spotless on our arrival and everything was of a high specification, but it still felt homely; a perfect space for the two of us (although it could accommodate four people if you used the sofa-bed). The garden was a great space to have for eating or sitting in the sun, and the whole area was ours to use. The garden was also handy for parking the car off the road at night.
The house is approximately ten minutes by foot from the centre of Nardo, a town steeped in history with a number of beautiful buildings. There are also supermarkets, Conad and Eurospin, within five minutes walk in the opposite direction to the town centre. On Friday mornings, there is a very large market held on the car park outside the Eurospin. Nardo is also a good place to use as a base to explore Salento.
We loved Nardo and the Garden of Citrus, thank you Maria Rosaria for providing us with somewhere beautiful to spend such a memorable holiday!
This is one of those places that you would prefer to keep private but that would be unfair to the wonderful work that Gerrit and Claudia have put in to create this special space. The property is just as good as it looks in the photos and for our tastes the location was absolutely spot on. We really enjoyed the countryside location which also had good access to beaches together with access to numerous culturally interesting towns and cities.
