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.
