Superb rooftop terraces

  • 5 of 5

We loved our holiday in Otranto.

This apartment is in the best location with fabulous views from the terraces. We were given a friendly and helpful welcome by Andreas and the accommodation was clean, secluded and quiet yet just steps away from cafe's, bars, the Castle and the beach.

We were particularly impressed by the quality and variety of food in all the restaurants and the service and friendliness of the staff there and by the rest of the community that we encountered. We also enjoyed buying freshly caught local fish and veg to cook in the outside kitchen.

I'm looking forward to booking again in the future. Many Thanks to the owners.

Fantastic house in the old town

  • 5 of 5

My husband, three-year old son and I stayed in the house at the end of September for 10 days. The house was fantastic. We loved the outdoor kitchen and roof top terrace - it is really peaceful there, gets all the sun and made the holiday very relaxing.

The house is in a great location - very close to the castle in the old town and an easy walk to the beach and all bars and restaurants. We had hired a car and enjoyed a few trips out (Gallipoli is worth a visit) but also enjoyed spending time in Otranto.

The owner and her husband were really helpful. He met us and described where everything was and could not have been more friendly. He even helped us pay a parking ticket!

Would thoroughly recommend the house.

Il massimo in un centro storico.

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo trovato la casa di estremo comfort e estremante spaziosa.

Gli interni sono molto curati ed estremamente puliti, ogni stanza è dotata di climatizzatore di alta qualità. Gli arredamenti sono decisamente nuovi e in ottime condizioni.

Vi sono molto armadi dove riporre i propri indumenti.

Stanza da bagno con doccia idromassaggio , tutto funzionale.

Gli esterni sono eccezionali : 3 enormi terrazze (su 3 livelli ) estremamente illuminate e in una di esse c'è una grande cucina con cassapanca , tavolo da esterni e sedie.

Sei in pieno centro storico , all'uscita della dimora sei nel cuore di Otranto.

I proprietari francesca e andrea sono persone fantastiche , disponibilissime per ogni tipo di consiglio.

Voto complessivo della casa : 9

Semplicemente GRAZIE !

Schöne Unterkunft mitten in der Altstadt mit herrlichen Dachterassen

  • 5 of 5

Das Wichtigste vorweg : Die Dachterassen sind einmalig schön.

Die Wohnung zieht sich über mehrere Ebenen hin,liegt mitten im Centro Storico und Gott sei Dank etwas abseits der touristischen Rennstrecke Via Garibaldi.Es sind 2 Eingänge da.Wir haben immer nur den oberen ( Via Piacentini ) genutzt.Wenn man dann rechts geht,kommt über kleine,ruhige Gassen schnell zum Meer,wo auf der linken Seite ein schöner Strand ist (Spiaggia libera und auch bewirtschaftete Abschnitte.)

Die 3 Terrassen:Die überdacht,verfügt über eine eigene Küche ( Gasherd,Spüle,Grill ),Tisch und Stühle .Dort kann man immer Schatten haben.Die 2. Terrasse liegt ein paar Stufen höher und hat vor allem Sitzbänke.Dort kann man abends gut lesen.Ausserdem hat man eine gute Aussicht über die Stadt und zum Meer.Bei guter Sicht sieht man die Berge Albaniens.Auf der noch zwei Stufen höheren 3.Terrasse stehen einige Liegen.Auch von dort ist die Aussicht phantastisch.Die beiden oberen Terrassen bieten keinen Schatten.Wir haben eine Plane durch die Stäbe der Pergola gelegt ,die hoffentlich überlebt.

Die Schlafzimmersituation ist nicht ideal : Das grosse Schlafzimmer ist ok.Das kleine mit dem 2-stöckigen Bett arg klein.Das dritte Schlafzimmer liegt ausserhalb der Wohnung und ist nur über den Aufzug erreichbar.

Das Wohnzimmer und die Küche sind auch ok.Die kücheneinrichtung entspricht italienischem Standard ( d.h. wenig Geräte )

Die beiden Badezimmer ( eines in der oberen Wohnung,das andere bei dem dritten Schlafzimmer ) sind ebenfalls ok.

Service und Information sind eher zurückhaltend,was aber nicht unangenehm sein muss.Italienische Grundkenntnisse sind sicherlich von Vorteil.

Trotz der kleineren genannten Einschränkungen wegen der tollen Terassen und der schönen Lage eine absolut empfehlenswerte Unterkunft.

Excellente situation

  • 3 of 5

Points positifs : Superbe aménagement des toits pour la vie en été

Points négatifs : La maison ne dispose que de 3 chambres et non 5 (voir l'annonce)

- 1 avec couchage pour 1 couple

- 1 petite avec lits superposés pour enfants

- 1 dans une annexe avec 1 lit 1 personne ( chambre humide et sans chauffage)

les autres couchages sont des canapés 1 place, dont 1 dans la cuisine et l'autre dans l'entrée.

Cet ensemble est donc décrit à tort comme constituant 5 chambres.

Nous étions 7 dont 2 couples et 3 enfants. Un couple de parents a été obligé

de coucher toute la semaine de façon très inconfortable.

Difficulté aussi à prendre les repas à l'intérieur par mauvais temps; table petite ne pouvant pas recevoir 7 pers.

Nous n'avons pas eu à notre disposition les 3 vélos notés dans le descriptif.

Nous pensons que l'annonce est à revoir et aussi son tarif à cette période.

Fantastico soggiorno

  • 5 of 5

Ho soggiornato in questa splendida dimora, con mio marito ed i miei due figli, dal 9 al 15 agosto 2015. Il magico contesto in cui è situata ci ha regalato cene indimenticabili sotto un cielo stellato tra mare e storia.

L'ubicazione della casa, ci ha permesso di accedere direttamente al centro storico con tutta la sua movida, negozi e spettacoli senza avere ogni sera il disagio di cercare un parcheggio e nel contempo di godere dello splendido mare degli Alimini, raggiungibile in soli 10 minuti di auto.

Le tre terrazze esterne su più livelli ci hanno regalato cieli stellati unici, così come lo spettacolo pirotecnico del 14 agosto pressoché fantastico.

Il proprietario è una persona estremamente disponibile e gentile. La casa è dotata di tutti i confort, dalla lavatrice all'asse da stiro con ferro, dalla connessione wi-fi ai condizionatori.
