Wonderful holiday, Cisternino lovely town itself and perfectly located for visiting surrounding towns/villages/countryside. Markets wonderful, eating out a real pleasure, apart from Monday's when nothing open! Only issue with apartment was lack of wardrobe space.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of Casa Maria. Glad that you enjoyed your stay and we hope that you will visit again. Maybe staying at Trullo Stefano just 3 kilometres outside Cisternino in Marinelli contrada. This property is very spacious and can accommodate 6 people. Thank you for your comment about wardrobe space which we will review.

Wonderful Accomodation in Cisternino

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 10 day stay in Casa Maria in Cisternino. The apartment is cozy, spotless and very well located in the town -- steps away from the enoteca, forno, butcher, fish market, and restaurants... everything you need for immersion into the local 'scene' and culture. The market on Mondays was a wonderful window into local life. We were able to use the flat as our base for exploring much of Puglia including the nearby white towns of Martina Franca, Alberobello, Ostuni, etc. (which are generally less than 30 minutes away). We enjoyed hiking in the countryside through the olive groves and paths and in the small national park located on the road out of town, and noted that there are a number of small marked biking roads that would be fabulous to explore. The only issue we had with Casa Maria was that the wifi was very spotty. We needed to go to the local bar for fast and dependable wifi in order to download directions etc. as we did not have cell service from the US while vacationing. (Check out the Mozzarella Bar!). We much appreciated the central heat, as the nights were very chilly in April. The casa is very well equipped, and we even made a few meals from our purchases at the markets. Angelo, the caretaker, was very responsive and service oriented. We enjoyed our time in Cisternino at Casa Maria immensely, and have fallen hard for Puglia. Thank you for our home away from home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments about Casa Maria which future guests will find very helpful. Apologies about the wifi connection which there were problems with, but these have now been fixed I understand from Angelo. We look forward to welcoming you back to Puglia in the future and especially Casa Maria.

An absolute gem of a property, brilliantly restored.

  • 5 of 5

We are at risk of running out of superlatives to describe our stay in the historic centre of Cisternino. The standard of the property's restoration and the owners attention to detail in providing virtually every item, gadget or utensil to make our stay totally relaxing and effortless is commendable. My only concern would be being able to book again as Casa Maria merits a long long reservation list.

The owners ticked every box from our initial enquiry right through to the booking and beyond.

Thank you to Stephen & Kate for ensuring a wonderful holiday.

Really enjoyed our stay, what a lovely place. It all looked so brand new, we could not work out if we were your first guests.

Lovely town with lots to do and the rooftop terrace is perfect for evenings.

Thank you

Liebevoll bis ins Detail

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben eine Woche im Oktober in der Casa Maria verbracht. Die Wohnung liegt mitten in der Altstadt und doch absolut ruhig. Der Aufenthaltsraum mit der Küchenzeile bietet genügend Raum zum Kochen, Essen und Verweilen. Die Innengestaltung mit Sichtmauerwerk und weissem Putz ist äusserst sorgfältig ausgearbeitet und hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Der Schlafraum ist klein, das Bett aber sehr bequem. Der Ausbau der Wohnung ist von hoher Qualität. Sehr schön ist die Dachterrasse, die man vom Schlafraum aus über eine steile Treppe erreichen kann.

Wir haben die Wohnung sehr sauber angetroffen. Geschirrtücher, Badetücher und Artikel für den täglichen Gebrauch (Geschirrspülmittel, Zucker, Salz, Toilettenpapier) waren vorhanden.

Der Aufenthaltsraum verfügt über kein Fenster und ist darum relativ dunkel. Licht kommt nur über die verglaste Eingangstüre herein. Umso schöner ist es da, wenn man einen Teil des Tages auf der Dachterrasse verbringen kann.

Im Vergleich zu anderen Ferienwohnungen verfügt die Casa Maria über eine gut ausgestattete Küche, die es einem ermöglicht, mit den feinen apulischen Nahrungsmitteln selber zu kochen. Kleine Läden findet man gleich um die Ecke.

Wir können diese Wohnung wärmstens empfehlen. Ungeeignet ist sie nur für Personen, die Probleme haben mit dem Treppensteigen.
