Puglia experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent six weeks in the countryside outside Martina Franca which turned out to be an inspired choice. The apartment was everything as advertised, comfortable, clean and tastefully furnished with a well equiped kitchen.

For us the location was superb as it is situated between the two coasts of Puglia, only three miles from town and yet set in the picturesque countryside where one can walk for miles along stone walled country lanes. Location is ideal as there are a number of hill top towns with interesting historical town centers within easy driving distance.

Last but not least is the bonus of our hosts, Luigi and Julie, who went the extra mile to make our stay memorable. Having someone who can speak your language and living on site is a tremendous advantage in a foreign country. We also appreciated the fresh greens from the garden but were too early for the fruit trees.

We strongly recommend this apartment for anyone wishing to experience the real Italy in Puglia.

Italy By Choice

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 months staying in this property. It was over summer and warm to hot almost the entire time. It is located about 3km south of Martina Franca and having a car was essential. The area is about 500 meters above sea level and is therefore slightly cooler than at sea level. The garden was terrific, with fruit trees dotted throughout and with tomato and capsicum in abundance. Our hosts, Luigi and Julie, were delightful - helpful and friendly. From our base we traveled throughout the Puglia region, took a language course at Accento in Martina Franca and generally enjoyed the warmth and friendliness of almost everyone we met - despite not much English being spoken in the area. The apartment is not airconditioned, but fans provided relief overnight. A swimming pool was made available at one of the local hotels, about 2 km away. We would love to return and would not hesitate to stay with Luigi and Julie again.

Relaxing Appartment

  • 5 of 5

The appartment is spacious, well maintained and clean. There is the opportunity to use the pool in a nearby hotel. The owners are very welcoming and could not be more helpful.
