Very Good

“An April escape in Salento!”

Reviewed 19 Apr 2018

We wrote this review on our final day at Pierangelo and Elisabetta's lovely villa near Castro. We started the day with breakfast on the terrace, looking out over the Adriatic and then we moved to the shady lower level to enjoy the filtered sunlight and spring fragrances. It is a very special place...difficult to leave. A few years ago, when we stayed at Elisabetta's amazing B&B in Lecce, she told us about her plans for this villa. We knew it would be a "labour of love" for her, and we knew we would return to Puglia, so we kept her villa in our minds. Then, when some of our friends expressed an interest, we contacted Elisabetta to arrange a week-long stay in mid-April. Two couples joined us, for 3-4 days each, and all three couples were here for two of those nights. (Each couple had a chance to enjoy the "room with a view" on the upper terrace.) It was very comfortable, even with six people, and Elisabetta got us started with one of her famous baskets of local treats, including some wonderful marmalade and limoncello. As other reviews indicate, the villa is in a private, secluded area, between Castro and Marittima. Groceries, shops and restaurants are a short drive away, so we enjoyed both cooking together and dining out. At this time of year (April), the scenic coastal road north to Otranto and south to Santa Maria di Leuca was a pleasure to drive, and our cyclist friends loved it.The villa also positioned us well for day trips to local archaeological treasures (Cripta di s. Maria deli Angeli, in Poggiardo), frescoed churches (Santa Catarina d'Alessandria, in Galatina) and prehistoric menhirs and dolmens (near Giurdignano). There is so much to explore in this region, and we found mid-to- late April a perfect time to come. Throughout our stay, we enjoyed the warm and sincere attention of Pierangelo (who met us and oriented us to everything) and Elisabetta (who was always so quick and warm and responsive from the time of our booking right through to this, our final day.) This is a wonderful holiday setting in a fascinating area of Apulia - the Salento. We know we will return - to enjoy the rich cultural history, the celebrations, the cuisine...and the exceptional hospitality of our hosts. Lon & Val & friends from Canada

We spent a splendid time in this marvellous and spacious house with a charming garden very close to the see. The view on the terrace is beautiful. Elisabetta had prepared for us a basket with food and drinkings : olive oil, fruit, coffee, tea, cookies, beers... And we enjoyed the very beautiful area, there is much to visit and discover... and the see of course is sublime... This is really a very, very good address.

“Lovely home, beautiful area”

Reviewed 27 Jul 2013

We had a wonderful time at Salento Stone Cottage. Elisabetta and Pierrangelo were really lovely and incredibly helpful - from giving us a great tour of Lecce to examining my husband's ear to see if he had an infection (Pierrangelo is a Dr) to arranging with a local hotel for us to use wifi. The house is very well equipped -- even with sharp knives!! -- from beach towels to plenty of cooking equipment. The welcome basket was delicious and incredibly useful (the strawberry jam and olive oil were amazing). The beaches are incredible -- crystal clear water and plenty of coastline to find uncrowded beaches (mostly rocky coves nearby). We found a few restaurants in the area that were quite good and not touristy. In all, a wonderful, relaxing holiday. Thank you so much Elisabetta and Pierrangelo!!

“A fantastic stay”

Reviewed 16 Jul 2013

We had a fastastic stay in Elisabetta and Pierangelo's cottage at Acquaviva near Castro. The cottage is exactly as described. Beautiful walled in garden plus large terrace overlooking the sea, perfect places for having breakfast, a chat or just for chilling out. Elisabetta's recycling skill has made the whole place very very special: wooden pallets have been turned into bedheads, cable spools into garden tables, an old ladder in one of the bedrooms can be used to hang up clothes and everywher are wicker baskets of all sizes. One in the main kitchen was full of yummy delicatessen from Elisabetta! Beds are very comfortable, living room spacious and shady, the studio upstairs very stylish and with an unforgettable view. Both kitchens are fully equipped but we used just one, mainly for making breakfast, as our hosts, as well as many friendly locals, recommended excellent restaurants and agriturismi. Casa mia and La Locanda del Levante in Tricase, Aria Corte in Marittima, Agriturismo L'Aia in Vignacastrisi and the bakery Protopapa should not be missed! The location is also perfect for making coastal and interior day trips. Galatina, Otranto, Gallipoli, Nardò, the ecletic villas between S.Caterina and Cenate, Specchia (the best ricotta ice-cream I've ever had!), Scorrano with its astonishing dance of millions of colourful lights when the patron saint is celebrated, are all musts. All in all, Elisabetta and Pierangelo, friendly, generous and helpful at any time, their cottage and Salento with its people exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend this house to others. Grazie Elisabetta and Pierangelo for pampering us with a successful combination of Florentine and Salentinian warmth Miriam, Guido, Irene, Mariella and Davide
