STYLISH ART DECO HOLIDAY HOME IN HISTORICAL BAROQUE OLD TOWN PALAZZO, PUGLIA

Galatina House Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 2 to 8, prices according, near Ionian and Adriatic white beaches

Comfortably accomodating two to nine people,this spacious 5-bedroom art-deco styled town house was originally part of a 16th Century library and has since been renovated to an extremely high standard by award winning 'Puglia Estates' as seen on Grand Designs. The apartment spans back from a grand entrance and stair-case to reveal room upon room of living space. The modern kitchen is fully equipped with 5-burner gas stove, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge freezer However, the real heart of the cooking/eating area is the original kitchen where once wood burning stoves were located and which leads out onto a beautiful dining terrace for enjoying breakfast or an evening bottle of wine al-fresco. The townhouse consists of a large lounge, 4 double bedrooms (two en-suite) mean you don't have to struggle with sofa-beds and a large spectacular roof terrace combined with two further private terraces allow a variety of sunbathing options. The apartment has aircon in smaller rooms.

Additional information: As with many old properties in Italy, there are lots of steep marble stairs between floors (the ceilings are very high and the house spans over 3 floors), and very high roof terraces with waist high walls. As a result, the apartment may be unsuitable for people of reduced/impaired mobility or young children (under 10). It is the guests' responsibility to ensure the safety of their children. Having said this, the apartment is full of character and original features, and the high terraces afford spectacular views of Galatina and the surrounding area. Smokers are welcome, but we do request that guests only smoke outdoors on the roof terraces.

Foodpacks and local knowledge: You will be met at the house with the keys and shown around by someone who has lived in the area for a few years. This allows us to impart some very local knowledge such as the best places to eat, or the nicest beach to get your suntan. We are also able to provide you with a food pack should you arrive late and just want to settle in without having to find supermarkets open. If you would like a little something special, such as a nice fizzy prosecco, we can accommodate any request.

Wonderful apartment

We have just finished a weeks stay in this wonderful holiday home owned by David and managed by Cristiano. The information packet sent when we booked was fabulous in orienting us to Galatina and the apartment....nothing was overlooked. The apartment is very spacious and we were a party of three couples and never felt crowded. The bedrooms were very separated and we never were aware of outside street noise.....oh, except in the top bedroom a neighbors cat could be loud occasionally. Parking is an added bonus that is for sure and a car is necessary. The beds were comfortable....the kitchen very well supplied with cooking utinsils. David and Cristiano were very responsive to any problems we encountered and wanted to be made known of corrections that needed to be done. All were minor and I am sure resolved by now. We would definitely return. If you do come be sure to look up L'Astore Masseria and take there cooking class and wine and olive oil tour......a highlight of our stay.
Owner's Response: Dear Stephanie, it's been a pleasure to have you in the house as guests, and I am sorry for the little problems you have encountered during your stay. I can confirm the y have already been solved! Thank you for your precious advise and for your wonderful comments.
See you soon!

Again and again

When a couple of friends from Germany spend two weeks in the Salento and decide to return again in the forthcoming year, even before their current stay is over, a lot of reasons might apply: The beauty of Galatina village, the hospitality of the Salento people, the delicacies in the local restaurants, the pureness of the Ionian Sea, the oustanding wines of local Santi Dimitri vineyards – and much more. All of that is true when it comes to this outstanding region of Italy. But the cherry on the top was our “home away” in this beautiful palazzo in the historic center, where we truly felt at home. A perfect place for people who love to buy food at the local markets, cook and dine at home; (but as well for for those who prefer to have some aperitivi on one of the terraces – and then have dinner outside ;o) It was the perfect choice for our group, and will certainly be the perfect choice again next year. Galatina, we are coming!
Owner's Response: You will be wellcome back, Seb!

A lovely and spacious property

We arrived much later than expected due to flight delays, and Cristiano came to our rescue, finding us after we got lost and escorting us to this large, bright, and airy palazzo. The house is beautifully restored, keeping its antique feel while being comfortable and equipped with everything you need. We (two couples) were there for two weeks and enjoyed getting to know the charming town of Galatina. We had one unfortunate incident when a roof drain became clogged, causing a cascade of water from the roof into one of the living areas, but the cleaning crew came out immediately and made everything right in a short time. This accident could happen to anyone, and the quick response turned it from a potential disaster into an adventure.

Most tourists seem to visit this area for the beaches, but we were more interested in the towns, the castles, the art, the archaeology, etc. There are many easy day-trips from Galatina to fascinating spots (and we did an overnight trip to Andria to visit the Castel del Monte). Highly recommended for an off-season visit.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much to you all! I hope I'll see you next year (with a special discount!).
Ciao, Cristiano

A very nice surprise

A beautiful, quirky house. It really was just like home. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. Cristiano was very charming and helpful.
Given the date of our visit, parking was never a problem. Galatina has some excellent restaurants and we found the people so very friendly and helpful. It is perfect for exploring the many other towns and villages where the architecture and history is so fascinating.
We would return to this house in order to discover more about this part of Italy.
Owner's Response: Thank you very much! You will be always welcome back, and there is so much to discover!

Stunning, Spacious House

We were really bowled over when we first looked around the apartment which exceeded expectations. It is extremely spacious - we only had 4 people in it but could have comfortably had 5 more.

It is well furnished and decorated and we had a really comfortable stay in Galetina. One of the perks was the projector which we used to watch a couple of old movies on the terrace during the warm evenings.

The apartment is well located in the town with easy access to the surrounding restaurants and shops . Galetina itself offered a choice of coastlines although we favoured the Adriatic side where the beaches were a little more rugged.

All in all the apartment was the perfect location to explore the surrounding area and was cool and comfortable when we opted to stay nearby. Thank you!

Located in Centro Storico Galatina the apartment is within a few short steps to restaurants, cafes, bakeries, gelateria and shops. The town itself, being designated a Citta d'Arte, you'll find yourself surrounded by Baroque architecture with fine examples such as the beautiful frescoes of Basilica Santa Caterina. Further afield the bustling baroque provincial capital, Lecce, is only a 20 minute hop away, with it's Duomo and Roman amphitheatre, much more impressive than the larger northern Puglian towns of Bari or Brindisi. For sea, sand and gelato Galatina is also within easy reach of the Ionian (Gallipoli, Santa Maria al Bagno, Porto Cesareo) and the Adriatic (Otranto, Torre dell'Orso, Castro) coastlines. Find yourself amongst the Trulli at Alberobello, walking the old town of Ostuni, the White City, or gazing out where the Ionion and Adriatic meet at Sta. Maria di Leuca, the 'Lands End' of Puglia, all just a day trip away.

Golf: Acaya Golf Club, 20 minutes away.
