We loved this apartment! We parked our car in the nearby free lot (as suggested by Andrea) and met Andrea's parents who live downstairs to the flat. The most loving and generous people - providing toys for our children, fruit on arrival, allowing us to use their own terrace area for our children to play and even offered fresh basil from their garden for our cooking!
The apartment was beautifully clean and well equipped with high quality appliances. Comfortable bed and an additional single bed to accommodate our 3yo son. The outdoor shower was perfect after spending our mornings on the beach. And we ate our pizza dinners outside on the terrace with a glass of wine - just bliss.
We definitely recommend the apartment and we plan to stay here again on our next visit to Puglia. The only thing I would mention is that people with mobility issues may find the staircase leading up to the apartment a little difficult - it didn't bother us - but may be an issue for some.
Andrea's mom made checking in simple on-site and showed us the free parking lot nearby. Very sweet to have water and fruit on our arrival. Loved our stay here. Roomy for a couple. Small shower. Clean apartment. Lovely outdoor terrace on which we enjoyed dinner. Great location in centro storico but quiet. This apartment has many steps, so it is only for those without mobility issues. Great roof-top view. We felt secure in the building. Wifi worked perfectly. Responsive host. Grazie, Andrea!
As described, Andrea’s flat is welcoming, cozy and well-appointed in the centre of Gallipoli’s old centro storico. It is located within 5 minutes to the center’s beautiful beach and even closer to the main drag, grocery stores and restaurants. The store directly below the flat was particularly convenient and offered fair prices –try their burratini which is a locally prepared soft cheese (amazing!).
Upon our arrival, Andrea's parents were very welcoming. Elsa had fresh fruit ready for us in the fridge which was perfect after a hot day of traveling. Elsa and Dino are great people and amazing hosts!! We appreciated their grocery, fish market and restaurant recommendations. It was great to take in the culture and pretend to be temporary residents rather than visitors passing through.
We were very comfortable in this flat with 4 adults. We are "Italian sized" so that helped - but it is surprisingly spacious with ultra high and artistic ceilings. The kitchen is well stocked with new appliances, pots, pans, plates, table cloths, wine glasses, cups, etc. - it has absolutely everything you need to make a full fledged meal.
The bedroom is spacious and comfortable - with lots of room for clothes storage, etc. It is quiet at night so don't worry about street noise. We did not experience any problems with our WiFi connection - no complaints! WiFi even worked on the rooftop terrace. One of the most memorable parts of my trip was sipping on a glass of Negroamaro wine while watching the sun go down - what a great view. Serenity and privacy like no other!

You will love this place and immediately feel at home.
Grazie mille - Elsa and Dino!
The apartment was great and contact with Andrea and his wife and Son too! We had a great time in this beautiful apartment at a great spot: only a few footsteps from The beach and in The old town. Andrea was a great host and he helped us out when our car was towed. I loved The outside shower soooo much!
Parfait! Super appart avec une vue à couper le souffle et une énorme terrasse (cerise sur le gateau: la douche extérieure) ! L'appart est situé au coeur du centre historique et à quelques metres d'une plage magnifique. Nous avons adoré notre séjour chez Andrea et sa femme!
About the Host, Andrea
After living in several parts of the world in large cities, doing very demanding and intense jobs, we moved back to Italy (I m Italian..) in Gallipoli, a town where quality of life is superb and stress is just an unknown word...
