Lovely quiet place and stunning view

  • 5 of 5

It was my family's first visit to Puglia and we could not have landed at a better place. The house is new and fresh, garden is beautifully kept and pool lovely. You will immediately feel relaxed here as there is absolutely peace and quiet. Our boys age 8 and twelve enjoying the two friendly small dogs which was joyful. The surrounding beaches are among the cleanest we have ever visited. you find fish swimming around your feet! We are returning in 2017 for two weeks. Looking forward to visiting the place again.

1 semaine magnifique !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été enchantés par nos vacances, au printemps dernier, dans la région du Nord des Pouilles !

Lle Parc de Gargano est incroyable, ne ratez pas les excursions possibles en bateau de Vieste, qui permettent de découvrir les grottes marines de la côte et pour se rendre aux Iles Tremiti, l'eau est turquoise, c'est magnifique.. (Nous reviendrons sûrement, car hors saison et avec notre bébé, nous n'avons pas profité comme nous aurions aimé de toutes les petites criques et lieux de baignades du coin )

Rien à dire sur le gite, il est vraiment très agréable, surtout la grande terrasse ombragée où on peut déjeuner en admirant la baie et les oliviers à perte de vue, c'est magnifique !

Les enfants ont également beaucoup apprécié le contact des animaux du voisinage (les chevaux dans la pâture, les chats du voisin, les lézards qui bronzent...) ainsi que la piscine que le propriétaire a ouvert expréssement pour notre fils aîné !

Les propriétaires sont des gens charmants. Ils sont venus nous chercher dans Mattinata pour nous conduire au gite alors que nous arrivions très tard, puis nous ont prêté une poussette car nous avions eu un souci avec la nôtre. Ils nous ont invités plusieurs fois autour d'un café pour parler de tout et de rien et ce fut très sympa (Le domaine est dans leur famille depuis des générations !) Le plus drôle, c'est que nous ne parlons pas italien et eux pas français, mais nous avons quand même réussi à nous comprendre !

La seule chose à savoir : attention, tous les commerces de Mattinata, la petite ville du coin, très typique, ferment entre 13h et 16h30, donc pensez à flâner dans le centre ville avant d'y déjeuner ou en fin d'après-midi. Heureusement, nous avons quand même réussi à trouver des gelatoria ouvertes pour les enfants ! ;-)

Bref, vous l'aurez compris, nous sommes un peu nostalgiques d'être rentrés et aurions bien aimé y passer une 2e semaine !

Bonnes vacances si vous y allez !

Just like in the photos!

  • 5 of 5

Super relaxing place: great facilities, lovely lawn, stunning view. A beautiful location to explore the Gargano. It's a 5 minute drive one way to the beach, and the other way you're in the Gargano National park.

The beaches up and down the coast are stunning - next time we'll rent a boat and check out the entire coastline from the sea.

Thanks to Maria and her parents for making us feel very welcome!

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled we my 5 children from busy London to visit this spectacular region of Italy still fairly untouched but the massive tourist invasion which Italy is well known for during the summer season. We found a modern, easy manageable and peaceful house on the adjacent hills of Mattinata, a pictoresque town right on the sea surrounded by centennial olive trees and beautiful waters.

The house had amazing views of the coast, extremely welcoming neighbors which happen to be the owner's own family with great addresses for fresh ricotta, baby size figs, good wine, seafood restaurants and you name it!

Rooms were clean and ideal for a beach holiday, garden and patio perfect for early morning breakfast and siestas which is a must as the heat becomes unbearable around lunch time, and just moments away from great walks in the natural park of the Gargano. Perfect for active people, cyclists, hikers or even lazy strollers to unwind from the winter's blues. Car is absolutely essential, if one enjoys exploring, the baroque region of South of Puglia "Salento" is not too far. Will definitely go back.

Séjour idéal

  • 5 of 5

Très bien situé pour visiter la région magnifique du Gargano, mais aussi des beautés architecturales de la région plus au sud de celui-ci, cette maison nous a paru idéale pour profiter de la forêt ,de la mer et des monuments. L'accueil de Mattéo et de sa famille est parfait: il est venu nous chercher à Mattinata et la chaleur des échanges restera pour nous un souvenir fort. L'entourage de la maison, avec ses chiens sympathiques, ses chevaux crée une atmosphère de simplicité chaleureuse, qui est caractéristique de cette région des Pouilles. Merci pour tout et nous aimerions bien revenir!

Mattinata is a quiet and friendly town surrounded by olive groves, in the Gargano National Park: a unique Mediterranean destination, that offers historical and natural attractions. It’s the place to get away from it all, savour one of the best cuisine of the region, visit Monte Saraceno Bronze age settlement or the close-by Medieval towns, lose yourself in the silence of the Umbra Forest or simply lay on its stunning beaches. Travellers enjoy walking or cycling on its beautiful natural trails, where they can experience a real wild orchid paradise with its 54 different species. Founded by Greeks, became fairly important in Roman times (when ships loaded with oil and wine set out from its harbour). it is still possible to see the ruins of a villa discovered near the marina.

Mattinata is well connected to the International airports of Bari and Pescara (2 h and half drive) and the national airport of Foggia (45min drive).
