About the property

Cottage in Mattinata, Foggia, Puglia, Italy - Peaceful Location, Close To Mattinata Town Centre And The Beach

This beautifully renovated early-1900s cottage is located on a quiet hill, from where guests can admire a stunning 360° view of Mattinata and its surrounding (on a clear day it's possible to see town from the other side of the gulf). The house is fully furnished at a high standard and is decorated with exceptional taste. The house has a large garden with a large variety of trees and plants. It's the ideal place for those seeking peace and rest and is handy for those who have pets or those in need of an outdoor space for their kids.

About Antonio Ciuffreda

I am an Italian software developer living in England with my wife.

Why Antonio Ciuffreda chose Foggia

I inherited this property from my family. It's been part of our family history for decades and I am very attached to it. The house used to be an old cottage but it's been gone under several phases or renovations in the past few years. I really like to spend my holiday there whenever I can because of the quietness and the amazing panorama and because of its proximity to the town centre.

What makes this cottage unique

Contemplating the amazing panorama. While the property is in the middle of the country, it's only 5 minutes by car from the town centre and 10 minutes from the beach, so it's very convenient for going out into town in the evening or going swimming during the day.

stunning view from large terrace over the bay

  • 5 of 5

Visited middle to end of May (before the main Italian holidays – so relatively quiet everywhere, but already sunny and hot).

A spacious, well-equipped and very clean house, just 3 minutes’ drive out of the town and uphill. A quiet and relatively secluded location (despite being so close to the town and beach), with a stunning view from the large terrace over the wide bay below.

Antonia and Raphaelo, the local owners, were friendly, generous (fresh fruit from their trees, herbs from the garden and invited us for lunch on our last day) and were sensitive to our space and privacy. They own the attached flat next door, but remained in their house in the town during our stay. They spoke limited English, but their son Antonio, who lives in England, was always available by text or phone for any translations. He was also very helpful beforehand, sharing local knowledge and managing the initial booking.

We were lucky enough to be there during a full moon which shone out over the water each night and, the one night we ate out at a beach restaurant, rose up out of the sea, a gorgeous deep orange.

We had a wonderful time here. Mattinata is a fairly small, quiet, friendly town. The beach is stony - but small, easy to lie on, stones at the far south, public end. We parked in an olive tree grove/field marked for parking. When we aksed if we should pay before or after they waved us off and said we could leave the car for free. Just one example of many generous and friendly experiences we had in Gargano.

Lovely walks from the house up into the surrounding hills, (after a short drive) through gentle woods and flowers up to Mont Sacro (orchids) and (after a longer drive) out from Monte San Angelo (a busy and touristy hill town) in the surrounding hills.
