Why Caroline Gennaio and Paul Gennaio chose Alliste
We recommend renting this villa as it gives you luxury of getting away from the hustle and bustle, especially during August. After a long day you can sit out in the evenings with a glass of the local wine. Children can play safely as the road is private.

For the perfect allround holiday!
I was instantly excited about my stay here as it was my first time to Italy and I was looking forward to stay in a traditional part of the country that was not over ran by tourists, this was exactly what I got.
After a pleasant drive down from the airport the sat nav had told me I had reached my destination which took me down a private road, this was perfect as there was no traffic!! My first impression of the villa was very impressive as it was a good size and everything was in good condition including the surrounding gardens.
Inside was just as pleasing, it was all very clean spacious and equipped with everything I would need for my stay. There was a choice of three bedrooms which were all equally as charming and very clean! After unpacking and exploring the villa including the amazing views from the roof top, it was time to take a wonder round the area and see the local town of San Giovanni.
Not even two minutes into my walk I came across a lovely restaurant called La Cisternella which turned out to be my favourite place to eat! Further on I was surprised to see how many little restaurants and bars there were tucked away on the way down. When I arrived I instantly knew I was going to love this town, even though it was dusk it was bustling with families and young couples with market stalls along the coastal path with food vans and a variety of bars and restaurants
As well as the sea side town of San Giovanni with a never ending sprawling beach of golden sands and water front bars, there was also many other places of interest to visit in the surrounding areas. Some of my favourite places in particular was, Gallipoli which takes approximately 30 minutes to get to and showcases some great shops to look round and some lovely restaurants to choose from and a harbour to walk round with market stalls and fish market. Otranto was as an enchanting town to visit, taking about an hour to get to but well worth the visit! Set by the sea this walled city has plenty of unusual shops and amazing places to eat. Another seaside destination I would recommend is Saint Maria D’leuca which is at the peninsula of the country and offers fabulous views at the top of a church which has even been visited by the pope!!
A little bit of Italy :)
Such good value for money set in a local tranquil surrounding, for a couple or a family with total security and peace of mind of outside shutters, easy to rent a car to visit local beautiful white sandy beaches or to rent bikes. Lots of places to visit with great history or local bars/restaurants. Friendly people and beautiful little unusual shops in the town. This is perfect to see real Italy :)
