The house is located in Otranto, via dei Pioppi, 350 meters from the castle, 400 meters from the port, 700 meters from the first beaches, 50 meters from the entrance of the bypass port Otranto, strategic because it allows you to avoid the traffic peak season.

Several times winner of 5 sails of the Blue Guide of Legambiente and Touring Club for the cleanest sea in Italy, Otranto is also on the list of most beautiful villages in Italy.

Not to miss: the mosaic floor of the Cathedral (1088), the bishop's chair, the sanctuary nineteenth century martyrs, the Byzantine basilica of St. Peter, the Aragonese Castle, the Roman church, the underground Messapian in the Valley of Memories and the enchanting maze of streets and shops of the historic center.

The port bustles with life in the summer: besides fishing boats and welcomes pleasure boats, ferries, cruise ships.

As for the seaside stations, the nearest beach is 10 minutes away (on foot) from the building. A beach nearby is served and the Punta, you meet along the waterfront to the north; equipped and picturesque beaches of Alimini (the Bay of the Turks is the jewel seaside), indicated for surfing; the Conche Zone Specchiolla, however, are small bays where it promotes a more solitary bathing. Along the coastline itself meet the beaches of Frassanito and Sant'Andrea (10 km), Bear Tower (15 km).

Along the south coast we can stop in Porto Badisco, Santa Cesarea Terme, Castro and Castro City, then the Ciolo Bridge and Santa Maria di Leuca.

We recommend guided tours to the oasis of Gesine, a walk near Punta Palascia which is the easternmost point of Italy and near which there is the Red Lake, a natural lake that has formed in recent decades in bed an old quarry bauxite.

Appartamento centrale, rispondente alla descrizione, con ampi spazi e climatizzato

  • 5 of 5

L'appartamento si trova a pochissima distanza dal centro, raggiungibile a piedi in 5 minuti, in un quartiere tranquillo. Climatizzato, camere da letto ampie, nuovo e ben tenuto. Disponibile un box auto doppio, indispensabile durante l'alta stagione. Il proprietario ci ha riservato una splendida accoglienza e ci ha fornito numerosi suggerimenti su luoghi, eventi e prodotti tipici. Consigliatissimo.

Come da titolo l'appartamento di Gaetano è L'IDEALE per chi ha voglia di trascorrere un' ottima vacanza in Otranto, in un luogo centralissimo, in una zona tranquilla, e sopratutto senza lo stress di cercare parcheggio! Di fatti l'appartamento è sito a pochi passi dall' ingresso del centro storico, è fresco, dotato di 3 camere da letto, due bagni e un ampio salone con cucina, il doppio box (dove entrano comodamente due auto: yaris e clio le nostre) è veramente ottimo! L'appartamento riesce ad accogliere fino a 10 persone, noi lo abbiamo vissuto in sei per una settimana e non ci è mancato nessun confort!

Gaetano ci ha accolti al meglio con dei pasticciotti e bibite fresche e una splendida guida redatta da lui sui posti da visitare sia per trascorrere giornate di mare che serate liete!

Appartamento situato a 100 metri dall'ingresso principale del centro storico di Otranto ,dove c'è il castello Aragonese, in una tranquilla palazzina.

Come descritto nell'annuncio , è un appartamento molto accogliente,pulito e funzionale. Dotato di ogni confort e di un garage nel quale è possibile parcheggiare due auto (cosa molto importante ad Otranto).

Gaetano, il proprietario, è stato davvero gentilissimo e disponibile per qualsiasi cosa. Ci ha fatto sentire come se fossimo a casa nostra fin dal primo istante in cui siamo entrati in casa. Ci ha dato numerosi consigli su spiagge,città e posti da visitare durante tutta la nostra permanenza, sia per il giorno che per la sera.

Consiglio vivamente a chiunque voglia trascorrere una vacanza in tranquillità e relax ad Otranto e visitare le bellezze del Salento!

L'abitazione corrisponde perfettamente alle foto ed era in eccellente stato di manutenzione e pulizia.

Il proprietario e' stato disponibile e accomodante e ci ha fornito anche gli elementi per orientarci nelle nostre escursioni (sono disponibili nell'appartamento molte giude su Salento e Puglia e lui stesso ci ha datto ottimi consigli anche sui ristoranti).

Ho trovato la casa comodissima e razionale (divano, spazi, cuscini, sedie...nulla di trascurato), ariosa (grazie alle finestre disposte in parallelo) e molto tranquilla. La posizione rispetto al centro e' ottima (una decina di minuti a piedi dal bastione) e la disponibilita' del posto auto coperto un lusso (a Otranto ci sono strisce blu ovunque e ci risparmia di trovare l'auto bollente sotto il sole).

Consiglierei la sistemazione a parenti ed amici, sia per una tranquilla vacanza di mare sia come base di partenza per le escursioni nel Salento ed in tutta la Puglia del sud (le strade sono ben tenute).

Grazie Sig. Gaetano! Speriamo di tornare
