Charming and Spacious Villa in Spongano

  • 5 of 5

Il Giardino degli Aranci is a charming villa, tucked away at the end of an alley, located centrally in the small town of Spongano. The villa is spacious; the accommodation is of a high-standard as described; and it is well furnished both inside and out. There are two internal courtyard gardens, one of which extends on another level to a pool area, both containing mature citrus trees. The bedroom accommodation is in three separated parts: two bedrooms in the main building, another two separated by the courtyard, and another on the rooftop above the main building. Altogether, it is spacious and functional.

The owners have renovated the property to a high-standard, and maintain it very well. It retains its attributes as a charming old stone villa equipped with modern conveniences, such as hi-speed wifi, dishwasher, washing machine, two fridges and numerous lights. As occupants are responsible for utilities which are expensive in this part of Italy, we were vigilant in ensuring that all lights and appliances were turned off overnight.

The kitchen area is very well equipped with appliances, crockery and cutlery, suitable for self –catering for part or all of the time. We spent much of the time dining alfresco using the large table in the main courtyard. This is also a pleasant area for pre-dinner drinks. From time to time, we had a few mosquitoes but, with the use of repellent, these were not too much of a problem.

We stayed there as a group of friends, consisting of three couples and three singles from Australia and the UK. We made numerous day trips to the nearby towns of Maglie, Castro, Tricase, Lecce, Otranto, and Galipoli. A car is essential. Navigating around the local roads and towns, and for that matter through the one-way systems of Spongano, is not easy without a smart phone. This part of Puglia is very authentic and not frequented by hordes of tourists. Although not overly scenic, it is an interesting destination with its own history, architecture and interlocking rural areas, two coastlines, and closely separated small towns. There are numerous pizzerias and small restaurants nearby, all with delicious food and good local wine.

Our host and hostess, Roberto and Patrizia, were very helpful. They are readily accessible and keen to help. For example, we arrived on a public holiday when all the local supermarkets were closed. To help us get started, Patrizia arranged for one of the nearby small supermarkets to open just for us.

Cosy and comfortable asylum with friendly owners

  • 5 of 5

The house is decorated with great care and offers a really high standard. The patio with a pool is a highlight, you can eat fruit straight from the trees. There's a cafeteria 50 m from the house, perfect for morning cafe and cornetto. Owners were very hospitable and helpful, gave us a lot of information about what to see and where to go. Having a dinner at Masseria Le Stanzie near Supersano is a must, for typical everyday meal I'd recommend an old style restaurant & pizzeria close to the railway station in Spongano. Unfortunately there's no sandy beach nearby, but it's worth to take a 30-40 km drive to beaches at Ionian sea or Laghi Alimini. I hope to be back in Salento someday!

Una bella casa salentina

  • 5 of 5

La casa è molto bella ed è come appare nelle foto. Oltre che per la bellezza delle diverse stanze da letto, la casa è meravigliosa per la qualità degli spazi aperti: piccoli cortili ombreggiati da alberi di arancio e di fichi collegano le varie parti della casa e sono spazi dove poter rilassarsi leggendo un libro e cenando con gli amici.

Patrizia è un'ottima padrona di casa, è sempre disponibile e dà ottimi consigli per ristoranti, spiagge e luoghi da visitare.

Heerlijke week in gezellig huis midden in Spongano!

  • 5 of 5

Wij hebben met 2 gezinnen een prima week gehad in dit gezellige grote huis. Je moet de eerste dagen even de weg vinden maar e.e.a. wijst zich eigenlijk vanzelf. Er was een (klein) zwembad met fijne ligstoelen om van de zon te genieten. Ook hebben wij gezellig buiten gegeten (bbq).

Leuk is dat je op loopafstand een koffiebar, bakker en andere gemakken om de hoek treft. Iedere gast adviseer ik de tour langs de prachtige kustlijn naar het Zuiden te rijden.

Tot slot, er is een vriendelijke en behulpzaam beheerster!

Gorgeous stay in Salento

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in  Patrizia's beautiful villa in Spongano which she has refurbished to very high standards. We want to leave a note to thank Pat and Robi for their warm welcome. Even though it was 'only' April the children enjoyed the pool and we were able to eat out in the wonderful garden a few times. Thanks again for all the good advice so we could make the most of our stay. I would not hesitate to recommend this villa for a holiday - spacious, beautifully decorated and furnished, well equipped. A great location too, a short walk to the caffeteria and the shops. We also enjoyed the beautiful cities of Castro (a few kms away), Galipolli, Lecce and Otranto. Wish we had had more time to see them all! Thanks again and arrivederci!

Calorosa e romantica casa in pieno centro

  • 4 of 5

Abbiamo soggiornato una settimana in questa bella villa, la cui

struttura é tutt'altro che quadrata. Con le sue camere tutte diverse, dei bagni decorati con gusto, due cortili, i limoni ed una piscina, il Giardino degli Aranci é una gradevolissima proprietà dove ci si sente subito "a casa".

L'unico difetto, direi, é l'assenza di un parcheggio privato ... ma non é troppo difficile trovarne uno per la strada adiacente.

Detto questo, le informazioni indicate sulla pagina web sono precise,

e le foto danno una giusta immagine di questo gioiello nel centro di Spongano.
