Frantoio is a compact, and recently refurnished, modern ground floor apartment in a pleasant architect-designed private home in the countryside.
Two ground floor apartments in a pleasant architect-designed private home in the countryside. Unlike the vast majority of homes in the countryside we have recently been connected to mains water. This means the water is potable - no need to buy bottled water, or carry water from public standpipes in town.
Coratina is the principal of the two, having two bedrooms, a bathroom and exceptionally large, open plan, living, dining and kitchen area. Sleeping accommodation is for a maximum of 4 adults, plus two children, or 2 adults with a maximum of 4 children. This makes it an ideal choice for a luxury family holiday.
Both bedrooms are equipped with air conditioning. The bathroom has a full size bath, wash hand basin, toilet, bidet, and a separate shower cubicle.
The living area has two comfortable sofas, digital TV, DVD player, and CD player. There is a large selection of DVD's, CD's and books for our guests to use.
There are two wireless access points for guests to use free of charge, on their smart phone or computer, and computers can be provided for guests who'd rather not pack their own.
Frantoio, the one bedroom apartment, sleeps two adults. One child can also be accommodated by prior arrangement.
Although regular-sized it has everything a couple would need for a relaxing holiday.
The compact kitchen is equipped with hob, oven, microwave, fridge, kettle and toaster. For those who want to cook there is also sufficient crockery, cutlery, glassware and cooking utensils.
The compact bathroom has a wash hand basin, toilet, bidet, and shower. There is a heated towel rail, which is much appreciated for Winter Breaks.
Our stay at your house was sublime. Each day we think and talk about Puglia and our dear friend, Alfie.
Next year, we would like to come again in september for a few days. 7 days would be too long for us.
Is that posible?
Kind regards to you, David and of course Alfie
This property is a great find. The apartment was more spacious than we had expected. The welcome was a true welcome, with a welcome gift and time taken to share with us all the information we could need. Everything was beautifully clean, and there was a nice atmosphere. An absolute delight was the truly half olympic length pool, which felt completely olympic to us, and which we could - and did - use day and night!
This apartment is very spacious and well furnished and has everything you need for a good holiday. We enjoyed a relaxing two weeks here seeing the sights of Puglia and relaxing by the pool. The pool is the best in any holiday accommodation we have ever rented and is on a par or better than many hotel pools. The grounds of the house are very well kept and shade can always be found around the olive trees.
The hosts are very helpful if you need anything, the gardener kept us supplied with delicious produce from the garden, we had a relaxing holiday and would recommend this apartment.
A final few words - "What's it all about Alfie" ;-)
We enjoyed a relaxing week at Frantoio, the smaller of the two apartments at the beginning of August 2013. The apartment was clean, well-maintained and equipped and the extra touches such as provision of beach towels and the offer of shopping were welcome. The owners, Margaret and David are excellent hosts and Alfie, the resident dog, is a star! During the week the gardener provided two vegetable/fruit boxes which were welcome. The outside areas, including pool are spacious and clean and we know that Margaret and David intend to further enhance them.
Abbiamo alloggiato nel frantoio per una settimana. E' stata una vacanza perfetta: tra le nuotate meravigliose in piscina, relax e pace all'interno della proprietà, sapori della frutta e verdura del giardino regalataci dai proprietari e tanta cordialità. Non poteva andare meglio. Grazie!
Finding places in Puglia's, narrow, winding roads can be difficult - especially so when it's dark and you are tired after a long journey. 'No problem' with The Olive Grove, as the long main drive joins the totally straight Appian Way North-South. In fact almost the entire quick run from Brindisi Airport is on two segments of the ancient Via Appia.
