Hi, I rent my little house in my little town, Peschici (Apulia). I offer this accommodation for short period during all year.
The accommodation is perfect for two persons, it is composed by one bedroom with a bathroom but the very surprise is the location, in front of Adriatic sea, into the mediterranean vegetation that we call "macchia mediterranea", a fantastic location above the cliff. The apartement is in my private property, near my house. The location is suitable to reach the center of town in 10 minutes walk . The closest beach is S.Nicola bay. There isn't a kitchen but I provide an espresso electric machine and a little fridge. You could taste the typical food in more restaurants of town and I can offer you a special price in the resturant of my family, it is not so far from the accommodation and with 15 euro you can taste all specialities of Southern Italy.
A little place in front of the sea is the best place to discover that "the life is a wonderful thing". Try to come back.
Notre séjour de 2 nuits chez Carmela a été une des plus belles expériences et rencontres de notre voyage de 6 semaines en Italie du Sud (de Palerme à Rome via la Calabre,le Basilicate,les Pouilles).
Primo grâce à Carmela et ses filles Antonietta&Alessia,si serviables,adorables et chaleureuses,bien que discrètes,donnant le sentiment d'être comme chez soi.Avant l'aspect commercial,Carmela reçoit dans un esprit d'accueil et de rencontre,assez unique sur ce site.
Secondo le logement indépendant de la maison familiale,avec un emplacement extraordinaire en bord de mer Adriatique,offrant un confort coquet et tranquilité.
Ce B&B convient aussi bien aux touristes "classiques" loueurs de voiture qu'aux voyageurs "sac-à-dos" circulant en transports collectifs (comme nous).
Merci donc à nos hôtesses et amicale caresse à Ercolès.
Carmela's home was one of our favourite accomodation during our 6 weeks South Italian journey.
First because of Carmela & her daughters,so welcoming,helpfull & warm and discret,whose main goal is meeting new people.
Second because of the independant appartment,pretty,comfortable and (website hidden) be mentionned,the location,on sea side,with amazing view.
This place definitly fits both casual tourists with rental cars and backpackers traveling by public transports (like us).
S'il vous plaît,sachez apprécier et respecter. ce .
Please, enjoy and respect this .
Carmela's home was located in a very peaceful and beautiful setting. The drive there (we were coming from Rome) was lovely. Winding road along the coast. The room was basic but clean; it had a small fridge, table and chairs, coffee and espresso maker, bed and a sofa. Carmela kindly provided with some biscotti and bottled water upon our arrival. The view from outside is quite lovely and there is a small patio with two lounge chairs available. We ate in town once and it was very reasonably priced.
We would have only two minor complaints. We were at Carmela's in March and the room was a little chilly. The room does have a heater but it doesn't seem to be able to heat the room completely. However, there were lots of blankets - so we were not cold in the bed - it was just a little chilly going to the bathroom! Perhaps if the heater had been turned on in advance it might have helped.
Our other minor complaint is that the directions to her house were poor making it difficult to find. Our suggestion would be to ask, by email in advance, for detailed directions upon arrival in town - ask for landmarks. That said, however, Carmela was available by phone and her daughter came and met us and led us to the house (and we arrived late - about 10 p.m.). Carmela does not speak much English, but we were able to communicate somewhat with the daughter who found us quite easily. Turns out we were not very far from the house!
Those two complaints are minor and we would highly recommend Carmela's house!
Upon our arrival it was a bit rocky as no one was there to meet us. We waited 2 hours, then found a cafe to make a phone call. We reached Carmela on the phone but could not communicate with her so we then went back and still know one was there. As it was getting late we went in search of new accomadation and while winding through tiny little streets we ran into a lady waving at us. We must have looked like tourists! It was Carmela! So we followed her back, she let us into the apartment and she was off, it was very brief and we didn't communicate with her the rest of our stay. But, her daughters were very kind, introduced themselves and gave us suggestions on places to go which was very helpful and appreciated!
Carmelas place is very beautiful, tranquil and relaxinig. You can sleep easy while listening to the sound of the ocean, it was nice to come back to after a long day. We sat outside everyday to enjoy the fresh breeze. We also made two new great friends, her lovely dog Erculi and cat Breta who made the stay very nice too.
You definitely need a car if you have heavy bags and want to go visit anywhere outside of the Peschici. The town was very quiet and nice but there are not many places open this time of year. But, we did find one incredible restuarant which we highly reccomend (10 minute walk from Carmelas) Restaurante Da Carlino! Go!!! The family is so kind and the food is to die for!!!!
Other than the arrival, lack of communication and having to be outside to use the internet our stay was great!
Un autentico paraiso! Dormir con el sonido del mar de fondo, desayunar en la terraza con vistas al mar, degustar el aceite de oliva casero de Carmela... (Una anfitriona insuperable, por cierto.) Fuimos a cenar al restaurante de su hermana también. Muy barato y riquisimo. El unico pero: Tener que irse!
We stayed 2 nights at Carmela's place, it was amazing, just as described, perfect little place to get away from the world, we will definitely return next year!
If you are not afraid of a little walking, it is totally okay to arrive by bus (except on Sunday, when there is no bus from Vieste to Peschici). It takes around 10 minutes to reach the old town, where Carmela advised us on some nice restaurant, which we also enjoyed very much!
Nous sommes restés 2 nuits chez Carmela. C'était très bien. Elle est très accueillante et charmante. On s'endort avec le bruit des vagues, c'était très agréable.
It was a little tricky to find but once there was an absolutely incredible rental. We wished we had more time to relax and enjoy the view. The room was small but comfortable. Hope to have the chance to visit again.
Fabulous location, amazing views
Carmela's apartment was lovely and the view just superb. Carmela had made a lovely cake that was waiting for us in our room and she was very nice and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and the it is a very beautiful part of the world, something for everyone. We would recommend Carmela's apartment to any couple.
