This is a lovely home in a nice area outside of Bari with everything you could need for a restful holiday. Enzo and his parents go out of their way to make you feel welcome and you really feel that you are in a friend’s vacation home. Enzo (who speaks perfect English) greeted us warmly and there were treats, coffee, wine, water, beer and juice all waiting for us as well as maps, brochures and advice on what to see. Enzo recommended the town of Matera which had not been on our itinerary and was one of the highlights of our trip. The WiFi was perfect and their TV service has German, French and English channels. There is gated parking for your car (we rented from Europcar - a good experience) and it is very convenient to the Bari airport. We had several good meals at L’Incanto (within walking distance - charming owner, amazing olive oil). Enzo’s parents came to see us off and we felt as if we had made new friends as well as enjoying our holiday!
A great property and a lovely area.
As two older couples travelling together we all thought this property was excellent.
Firstly, the owner came and retrieved us when we couldn't quite find the place, though we were only just round the corner. Enzo and his mother were very welcoming and he had lots of very good and useful information for us His English is excellent. They had generously left food and snacks for us that we enjoyed.
The bungalow was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed, including a kettle which English guests appreciate. There is loads of outside space and lots of seating andthe garden is attractive. There are playthings for children as well. We happily sat outside after a tiring day out. The seafront is just at the end of the road, though you cannot swim here. We walked to a choice of restaurants every evening, about 15 minutes walk. A car would be a definite advantage here , though you are not far from Bari airport and we did use the bus to go into the city but there are lots of attractive towns along the coast or inland that you would need a car to visit.
We recommend the property, the owner and the area.
Brilliant place to relax!
The house was spotlessly clean, with all possible necessities provided as well as numerous extra snacks. The position so close to the water, yet extremely quiet, is perfect, with restaurants, bars and supermarkets within easy reach. We walked to dinner several times, enjoying the coastal atmosphere and the sea breezes. The house was spacious, light, sunny and very secure, and the outside area was just as spacious, with sun lounges and room to park our car safely behind locked gates. We were greeted with warmth by Enzo and his mother, and given a great deal of information about the local area, which contributed enormously to the enjoyment of our stay. We discovered that Santo Spirito was a great base from which to explore many other places of interest within reach, by both car and train. Gwen and Geoff, Australia
lovely well presented villa
Ideal place to stay good facilities and close to all restaurants shops and public transport. Expect a very warm and friendly welcome by Enso and his mother. Highly Recommended.
A very well equipped and located villa
A very well equipped and located villa in the former fishing village of Santo Spirito. The hosts are very welcoming, the hospitality tray was abundantly filled with tasty delicacies plus, tea bags, breakfast cereals, sugar and a 'nespresso' coffee machine with an ample supply of coffee pods. Like a great hotel, there were loads of clean towels, a hair dryer plus all the beds were made up. There are even bottles of shower gel and shampoo. Detergent was available for the washing machine. All in all, a very well equipped villa at an excellent price. Highly recommended.
Wonderful in every way!
We spent 5 nights here and loved it! The house is very clean, quiet and comfortable. It feels just like a family home and everything you could possibly think of has been provided. The small but functional kitchen is well-stocked right down to herbs, garlic, onions and olive oil. There are breakfast cereals, tea, coffee, packets of cakes, chocolates and even some liqueurs in the cupboard! The welcoming tomato focaccia, pastries, cheeses and bottle of wine was especially appreciated!
We loved the space to spread out here after 4 weeks of travelling and staying in B&B rooms. The garden is a lovely spot to sit in the sun with tables and chairs dotted around the garden and outside terraces. We ate outside and enjoyed the chance to buy food from the local shops and prepare our own meals. There are also great places to eat only a short walk away along the sea front, or buy fresh fish from the fish market in the afternoons.
Enzo is an amazing host. He provides lots of information about the local area and places to visit. His warm and friendly mother welcomed us when we arrived (such a lovely lady and I loved the way she used Google text to speech to translate for me!). Then Enzo came to greet us after work. He speaks excellent English and was quick to respond to emails when I made the booking and sent detailed information about how to find the property. He is incredibly kind and helpful and easy to contact if you need anything.
Staying here is like staying in your own home in a nice, peaceful area close to the sea. It is the perfect place to relax and also very well set-up for families with small children.
We really loved this place and highly recommend it!
