Prima di tutto il padrone di case e una persona gentilissima molto accogliente e premurosa e fa onore alla zona. LA casa e bella, larga e pulitissima, con tutte quello che protrebbe serviver per un soggiorno stupendo. E in una posizione tranquilla a due passi dal mare ( noi eravamo senza macchina). Santa Maria di Leuca e stupenda, ben servito da mezzi e negozi vari che sono perfetti per il soggiorno, viste favolose, mare bellissimo con spiaggetta, rocce, ombrelloni e una serie di ristorant e cafe semplici, di buon gusto. Noi abbiamo avuto un soggiorno fantastico grazie all'ospitalita del padrone di casa,l'appartamento stupendo, il mare bellissimo, e la localita molto bella... e anche i residenti sono favolosi. Una vacanza perfetta per coppi, famiglie e giovani!!!
First of all... it might be tricky for english people to reach this website and read everything in italian, but the place are worth it. This is the authentic italy, the host was kind and efficient still leaving complete freedom to your own choices so that you felt completely at home. The apartment is great, os actually rather large for british standard and at good price. It is located no more that 10 min from the sea and its serviced by 3 supermarkets, cafes, general shops that easily can provide for everything you need at real cheap local prices. The beach is small but perfect for children and on july it is a joy as everything seem still with low season price. The food is good reasonable priced, few quite a few choices. We did not have a car so for us was perfect... if we had a car we would have explored around as the full area offer unspoilt beauty. Said this there is a really good link transport with salentobus that runs from villages to villages and it was really efficient and on time and has quite a few option with wonderful scenic view.... considering the location it is wonderful prices and allows quite a fairly mobility (obviously it is not london transport system)
Dont miss the big square that looks like a painting of De chirico, the big villas with the old italian aristocracy ( you can meet some wonderful characters that come out right from Mr Ripley books) and the yummy restaurants decently priced.
And the owner of the house is really sweet and welcoming... it would go an extra mile to help you!!!
