About the property

The Cactus:

Typical House is located in the historic centre of Casarano. It is an independent Studio with a mezzanine and a large terrace with city views. We have renovated it in the respect of the tradition with a modern twist in the decoration. Casarano is a town where there's everything, including supermarkets and the hospital. It is located in the heart of Salento a few km from the Ionian coast and the Adriatic Sea. It is also close to the most important places of interest such as Gallipoli, Santa Maria di Leuca, Otranto

Charme, calme et authenticité

  • 5 of 5

Studio dont la surface est doublée grâce à la très agréable terrasse ombragée, sans vis à vis direct et avec une très jolie vue sur les toits-terrasses pittoresques de la petite ville de Casarano et les collines avoisinantes. L'appartement est situé dans une petite rue très calme de la vieille ville et on peut accéder à pieds au principaux commerces. Un parking gratuit est disponible à 200m de L'appartement. Les plages les plus proches sont à +/- 2o min et Gallipoli est facilement accessible par une voie rapide. L'emplacement de Casarano permet d'échapper à la foule estivale des côtes. La propriétaire est à la fois discrète, sympathique et disponible au besoin en se montrant très conviviale. Le voisin pourra même peut-être vous faire découvrir son trésor souterrain.... demandez-lui !

Abbiamo soggiornato in Casarano dal 12 al 20 Agosto 2013.

L'appartamento era veramente ottimo, carino, disponeva di ogni cosa, ottima la pulizia e l'ordine e corrispondeva perfettamente alle fotografie presenti sul sito.

Gentilissimi e molto disponibili i proprietari che ci hanno consigliato alcuni posti da visitare e che erano sempre a disposizione per ogni richiesta.

Consiglio a tutti questo grazioso appartamento, può sembrare un po distante dalla città più importante (15/20 minuti da Gallipoli) e dalle varie spiagge (max 30 minuti di auto), ma proprio il fatto di essere in un paese tranquillo e non affollato come Gallipoli, è stato determinante.

Fantastica vacanza!
