Bright and quiet room in spacious flat on the 4th floor of modern building, with access to balcony with sea view.
You will be sharing the common areas with a friendly typical Southern Italian family: myself, my husband and a lovely granny!
20 squared meters room with brand new king size sofa-bed, which sleeps 2 adults very comfortably.
You will have balcony access and wide windows which let a lot of light in, but with blinds and design curtains to protect your privacy.
Home made breakfast (plus lunch and dinner on request, with strong focus on authentic Puglia dishes prepared my myself with local ingredients) with organic ingredients, quality fresh bed linen and towels are provided, as well as shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, soap, tooth paste, body lotion and hair dryer.
Guest will have the exclusive use of a private design bathroom (just renovated) in this apartment situated in Taranto city center.
And they will share with us the kitchen and the spacious living room... and the long sunny balconies of course!
Something about the area (we will provide you with a house&area guide once here):
- there are various authentic pizzerias, bakeries, cafes, butchers, supermarkets, cinemas and shops in the area, just a few steps from the flat.
- you are a few blocks away from the waterfront promenade (Viale Virgilio)
- the old town and the castle can be easily reached with a pleasant 30 mins walk along the waterfront promenade or on public transport (13 mins on a bus)
- there are numerous buses that will take you the amazing white sandy and rocky beaches of the Ionic coastline
Taranto can be a perfect base for you to drive around Puglia and discover the beauty of the country side and the marvelous beaches of the Ionic and Adriatic Sea.
Let us give you some inspiration already:
- Lecce (so called the Florence of the South)
- Ostuni (the white city)
- Martina Franca and Valle d'Itria (for authentic meat and BBQ lovers)
- La Baia dei Turchi (literally "the Turkish bay" just North of Lecce, a stunning secluded beach with crystalline water)
- Alberobello (with its peculiar "trullo", little stone houses)
Other Things to Note
HOME COOKED MEALS: at your arrival we will propose you a menu prepared by us with the typical local Pugliese ingredients, if you decide to stay in and enjoy a lunch or a dinner at the flat!
Simply the basic rules of respect toward other people.
You are not allowed to smoke normal cigarettes in the flat, but you can take advantage of the wide sunny balconies for this. Electronic cigarettes are welcome indoor.
Un soggiorno bellissimo! Stanza accogliente, spaziosa, luminosa e fresca a pochi minuti sia dal mare che dal centro della città. La signora Vincenza, suo marito e la nonna sono persone disponibilissime e discretissime. Chiacchiere, consigli, risate e soprattutto una colazione fantastica. Siamo stati a nostro agio da subito.
Se dovessimo tornare a Taranto sicuramente la scelta ricadrà di nuovo su questa struttura.
Grazie di tutto,
Paolo e Roberto!
Siamo stati accolti nel migliore dei modi da Vincenza e dalla sua famiglia che si sono dimostrati allo stesso tempo molto disponibili e non invadenti nonostante utilizzassimo molti spazi comuni.
Abbiamo molto apprezzato la colazione abbondante e sempre con prodotti freschi e fatti in casa.
La signora Vincenza si è spinta ben oltre i suoi "doveri" di host insegnandoci i segreti della cucina tipica e offrendosi addirittura di farci il bucato.
Il divano-letto era comodo e molto spazioso e tutti gli spazi a noi riservati erano nuovi e ben tenuti.
Taranto è una bella città posizionata in maniera strategica per chi come noi vuole visitare tutta la Puglia, inoltre non essendo molto turistica ha anche il vantaggio di essere piuttosto economica.
Consiglierei a tutti di soggiornare da Vincenza e dalla sua famiglia per vivere un'esperienza che non sia solo una sterile visita turistica ma un ricordo duraturo nel tempo.
What else can I say about our stay that haven't been already said by the other people? Vincenza is just a great host! We felt at home with her husband, daughter and mother. It was like being part of her family. She made sure we were confortable and took care of us like a real italian "mama". From all the place we have stayed during our holidays, Vincenza's place was simply the best. My boyfriend was really impressed by the complete breakfast that she served us! So if you want to discover Taranto and its district, don't hesitate to visit Vincenza and Gianfranco! You won't regret it.
It was absolutely great to have such a caring and wonderful host! It was a pleasure to spend some days with Vincenza and her lovely family. The room is nice and clean with a sunny balcony and great seperate bathroom. Especially the breakfast was really really good and full of home made cakes, fruits etc.
The appartment is in a nice area and well connected to the city center and some beaches. We really enjoyed our stay, because Vincenza was so hearty and caring and we almost felt like being a part of the family. Thanks a lot for this wonderful experience! !:)
È stato assolutamente grandioso di avere una ospite così cordiale! Ci è piaciuto molto di vivere alcuni giorni con Vincenza e la sua amabile famiglia! La stanza era come promesso, abbiamo avuto un terrazzo e un grande bagno proprio. Specialmente la colazione era meravigliosa!!!
Grazie mille per questa grandiosa esperienza! :)
TOP NOTCH! if you are visiting Taranto, this is the place where to stay! a lovely couple welcomes you, their children (meanwhile out of flat & town) prepared a great guide (restaurants, sights, beaches) in written form, with gianfranco you can talk about football (!!!) and vincenza surprises you with the probably best breakfast in town!
What an absolutely wonderful place to stay!!! Would 100% recommend to anyone wanting to visit Taranto!!
The room was bright, spacious, and comfortable, the private bathroom large and clean. the apartment is lovely and very easily reached by bus and a fine walk to the waterfront and castle. Good restaurants and a supermarket very near as well.
The hosts were gracious and hospitable beyond words. They made their own guide to Taranto for us, helped us with public transportation to a beach outside of town, and drove us to the train our last day. Breakfasts...were amazing! Large, with a variety of fresh food.
We could write a lot more to describe all the kind things that they did for us; in short, they made the place feel like a home away from home, and we felt more like well loved family than guests, while still maintaining all the privacy we wanted.
We cannot them highly enough!!!
è stato un rilassante e divertente soggiorno, tra la bella e attenta accoglienza in casa, a partire dalla colazione con ottimi prodotti pugliesi e fatti a mano, la comoda stanza da letto, il fresco e luminoso balcone, nonchè il bagno con quella comoda doccia spaziosa! ottima l'ubicazione dell'appartamento, per le lunghe passeggiate a mare, per l'economico shopping in centro e le gite fuori (website hidden) torneremo sicuramente!

Sono una mamma che lavora, ho quattro figli sparsi per il mondo.
Vivo in una casa grande e confortevole, con mio marito e con mia mamma 97 enne autonoma ed in ottima salute.
Sono io stessa una grande fan di Airbnb: lo uso ogni volta che viaggio per incontrare i miei figli in Olanda, Inghilterra ed Australia.
E' sempre piacevole e vorrei fornire ai miei ospiti la stessa esperienza positiva.
Mi piace ascoltare la musica, fare pilates e giocare a tennis, ed adoro cucinare piatti deliziosi con ingredienti semplici e freschi per la mia famiglia ed i miei ospiti.
I am working mum with 3 daughters and 1 son who are all spread around the world!
I live in a big apartment with my husband and my lively 97 mum.
I am a big fan of Airbnb, which I use each time I travel to meet my kids in the Netherlands, the UK and Australia.
I always had a pleasant and positive experience, and I am keen to give the same to my guests. I love music, pilates and tennis and obviously I enjoy cooking typical local dishes for my family and guests.
Our English and Spanish are very basic, but there will be an English and Spanish house manual printed for you, and we can always find a way to communicate thanks to technology, a bit of intuition... and to my kids (on (website hidden) or over the phone) who are all perfectly fluent!
