La Fogge

  • 5 of 5

Ada and Martino are perfect and generous hosts. They live next door yet are discrete but available if any problem or question should arise. We were also the grateful recipient of some of Ada's amazing baking when she kindly brought round some pizza and a delicious chocolate cheesecake for us.

The property has certainly been given the designer 'makeover' as you will see from the photographs so has lots of ornaments and quaint touches to give a very impressive appearance although because of this the practicality of living in the house as a holiday home and some of the available surfaces was occasionally compromised.

There is a discrepancy with the facilities quoted on the HomeAway English version of the website however. There is no washing machine but there is a launderette in nearby Fasano if you need. The sofa bed is more accurately just a bed. So it actually means there isn't really somewhere to sit comfortably (i.e. a settee) in the living area only the kitchen chairs.

Outside the patio was well shaded - very necessary as the temperatures were consistently in the low/mid thirties during our late July stay - and had good furniture for eating outdoors (the table was actually replaced by a new larger one while we were there) together with sun loungers plus a hammock. There is a sun terrace on the first floor just outside the bedroom which we found perfect for the first coffee of the day and again at night with a glass of wine to watch the sun set over the hills in the distance.

The area has lots to see and the nearest coastal village of Savelletri is a beautiful setting for a great array of restaurants clustered round a quaint harbour- much like a Cornish fishing port only warmer! By contrast we found the other coastal town of Monopoli a disappointment: Fairly ugly and modern with not much of a beach to speak of. The 'trulli' village of Alberobello is a must and the many tourist souvenir shops have been well integrated into the setting so visually it remains pretty much unspoilt. Lecce is also worth the longer trip to see a good example of a typical old and well preserved Italian town.

'Away from it all'

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovey, peaceful week staying at this splendid property. We just couldn't praise it enough. It was all we wanted and more...........

Our hosts were lovely welcoming people and the cake was to die for.

Beach, supermarket, restaurants all close by. ( it was great to have use of beach umbrella ).

It was very hot during our stay so we spent lots of time swimming so didn't get to visit all the places of interest on our list.

We would love to return sometime in the future in early summer or autumn.

Peaceful and great location

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back home from this lovely house in Fasano, and we would love to go straight back! It was a very nice house with two really good patios to chill on. The house is in the country but minutes from Fasano and close to many places you will choose to see in the area. It is about 10 minutes from the beach too. We found it very peaceful and the owners Martino and Ada were there but very discreet. If we needed anything they were there to help. Ada brought us cakes which was a nice touch. There is no washing machine but otherwise the house is very well equipped. We found the bed comfortable and the two bathrooms were lovely. It has a bbq outside which we used, but there are many restaurants very close to the house. There is lots of choice. Supermarket is very close, only a few minutes away. The house was very nicely decorated and the hosts were lovely people. There was no problem in conversing with them. We would love to go back. A very nice property to rent. Really enjoyed the stay.

Fijne plek!

  • 4 of 5

Wat een hartelijke ontvangst in dit mooie huisje!

Je ziet dat de eigenaresse oog heeft voor detail, de ruimtes zijn met veel smaak aangekleed.

Wij vonden de 2 terrassen erg fijn. Beneden kun je lekker zitten of luieren in de hangmat en boven kun je heerlijk genieten op het grote dakterras.

Fasano zelf lijkt op het eerste oog niet bijzonder, maar heeft een verrassend historisch gedeelte.

Eigenaren geven goed advies over adresjes waar je lekker kunt eten.

Wij voelden ons erg welkom!

STUPENDO !!! MERAVIGLIOSO!!!

  • 5 of 5

Ubicazione perfetta per visitare tutta questa parte incantevole della Puglia. Locorotondo, Cisternino, Polignano al mare , Monopoli, Alberobello, Torre Guaceto ecc.....

La dimora è incantevole, curata nei minimi particolari, l'Host è sempre presente e disponibile senza essere invadente, in poche parole non mi rimane che consigliare a tutti di soggiornare in questo piccolo paradiso.

Ho viaggiato parecchio ma devo dire che Host così attenti, scrupolosi e gentili li ho trovati raramente.

Grazie di tutto.

Très jolie location

  • 5 of 5

L'aménagement de la location est parfait : Les volumes sont bien utilisés, les deux salles de bain et les deux terrasses sont appréciables et Ada a beaucoup de gout en ce qui concerne la déco interieure et exterieure.

Le logement est idéalement placé pour visiter cette magnifique région des Pouilles.

Nous remercions Ada et Martino pour toutes leurs delicates attentions.

Nous recommandons cette location où nous avons passé de merveilleuses vacances.
