This is a gem and potentially a really great place to stay. Mariagrazia was really helpful throughout and quick to respond to our questions before and throughout our stay. We felt very welcomed by Mariagrazia's parents, who live on the grounds but speak no English. Given the altitude variations of the plot, privacy is ensured. The location is fantastic, the pool area very nice and the grounds are well thought out. We missed air-conditioning and wi-fi. More comfortable pillows and a better equipped kitchen would also have been a plus.

We had such a wonderful week in this house. We stayed in the independent cottage and would highly recommend it - spacious, clean, comfortable and complete with everything you could need. We ate lunch and dinner on the beautiful terrace every day and loved using the pool. Perfect for families. Nearby to some lovely beaches all a short drive away. We were very well looked after by Mariagrazia and by her parents, who live at the main residence.

We had a wonderful week at Mariagrazia's house. We were warmly welcomed by her lovely parents and sister who made sure that we were well looked after. The house was impeccably clean with a fantastic view of the sea. It was peaceful and very convenient to drive to many beaches. The swimming pool was also perfect for us and our two boys aged 6 & 8. We'd definitely recommend this house and location.

Wonderful location. Clean and functional cottage with a lovely terrace overlooking the beautiful view. Warm and gracious host family. We could not have asked for anything better.

We had a truly wonderful stay in Mattinata. Mariagrazia was a pleasure to deal with answering all our questions and providing her recommendations for things to do and see while we were there (including those not in the guidebook, like a trip to Trani-well worth a visit). Matteo, her father, made us feel incredibly welcome, patiently waiting for us when our sat nav malfunctioned, bringing us figs and tomatoes he had grown and checking we were OK during a particularly dramatic storm that knocked out all the lights. The cottage is perched in a secluded location on a mountain side and the generous terrace affords views of the bay below, Mattinata and the surrounding mountain range. It's a spectacular setting and our children loved the horses at the end of the garden and the ability to wander around in a stimulating yet safe environment. The cottage has all the facilities you would expect, including a good kitchen and spotless bathroom (with shower) but also has an outside shower which was great in the hot weather and a dedicated barbeque area, with seating and external lighting which we used regularly. The cottage also acts as an excellent base to explore the Gargano Peninsula and the Umbra Forest which is dramatically different from the rest of Puglia. In the immediate vicinity we enjoyed the friendly atmosphere of Mattinata and its beach, although our feet are still recovering from the pebbles! There is an excellent choice of beaches around the Peninsula; including Peschici and to the south of Vieste and fascinating towns like Vico del Gargano and Monte Sant'Angelo to explore however they are very demanding to drive in and the combination of an oversized hire car and a medieval street pattern led to some challenging moments. An unexpected treat was the drive between these two towns however; the fluctuating and twisting route through the Umbra Forest is as invigorating as it is beautiful. We'd like to thank Mariagrazia and Matteo for making our stay a relaxing and enjoyable one and would thoroughly recommend others to stay at the cottage.

Het zicht op de baai vanop het terras is prachtig en het huisje is goed uitgerust (zelfs een antimuggen apparaat met voldoende navullingen = heel bruikbaar). Heel vriendelijke ontvangst spijtig genoeg enkel in het Italiaans. Goed onderhouden en proper.
