Cool holiday in a hot climate

  • 5 of 5

It is with great reluctance that I am posting this review, as it will probably mean that it will be difficult to book again due to popularity.

Sandra and Enzo have a wonderful home and have a terrific holiday flat. The rooms are wonderfully cool, even on the hottest days.

From the tasty welcoming treats in the fridge, lovely bottle of wine and a neat coffee machine, to the comfortable bed and lounge.

Gloria by name and gloria by nature. I especially loved the Cornish flag in the back garden.

Fantastic fortnight

  • 5 of 5

We found this a great location for one of our favourite holiday activities which is swimming in the sea, it really is a 5 min walk to the nearest safe, quiet beach. It is a good central base for visiting the Trulli and many other interesting destinations in Puglia, such as Lecce, Ostuni and many others.

The apartment was very comfortable and well equipped. The owners, Sandra and Nino, were very friendly and extremely helpful with lots of good advice about where to visit, eat, shop etc.

We had a great holiday and would definitely recommend this accommodation for a holiday to see the real Italy.

A lovely week

  • 5 of 5

We were in need of a relaxing break and this apartment was perfect for it. Within a few minutes walk from the sandy beach and a couple of beach bars, where you can also eat, but on the edge of the village, over looking a field. Also within a short drive of some great sightseeing spots, like Lecce (the Florence of the south) and Arbarello, where the Trulli houses are.

The owners (Italian and English) could not have been more friendly, welcoming and helpful to us. Nothing was too much trouble and they have a wealth of knowledge of the locality, which was really useful.

The apartment has a huge terrace, with table, chairs and a gazebo, as well as two sun loungers, so for a quiet day in the sun, you dont need to move. The apartment was beautifully clean and well furnished, with everything you need. I would really reccomend and hope to be back soon!
