Nous avons été satisfaits de ce logement situé au rez-de-chaussée d'une jolie villa à 5 mn de voiture du centre-ville de Martina Franca (le stationnement dans le centre-ville est assez compliqué, comme d'habitude dans les villes anciennes italiennes). Le logement est confortable, tranquille, bien chauffé (nous y étions en novembre) et la cuisine est convenablement équipée.
L'accueil par Marcello (en français) a été très cordial et il s'est déplacé pour venir nous chercher car nous sommes arrivés la nuit tombée et avons eu quelques difficultés à trouver la maison, même avec un GPS (en fait, il vaut mieux ne pas essayer d'y arriver par soi-même et suivre la suggestion des hôtes de prendre rendez-vous avec eux dans un endroit déterminé de Martina Franca).
En résumé, une excellente solution si l'on veut, outre visiter Martina Franca même, également rayonner dans la région qui comporte de jolies villes (Locorontondo, Ostuni, Sceglie, etc.).
Nous avons adoré ce séjour dans les Pouilles. L’accueil de nos hôtes a été d'une grande gentillesse et nous avons apprécié ce logement situé au sous-sol de la maison, ce qui a garanti des nuits fraîches. A l'écart du village de Martina Franca, nous avons pu prendre nos repas à l’extérieur sous la charmille, dans un calme reposant. La région est magnifique et nous avons pu visiter de très nombreux villages. C'est un lieu de résidence que nous vous recommandons.
The apartment is very quiet and is situated in pleasant countryside and yet only a 5 minutes drive from the centre of Martina Franca. It is spacious, neat and filled with quality furnishings - I think the photos of the interior do not really do this apartment justice. Everything works well, there is effective central heating and a good shower. The kitchen is very small and is stocked with the bare essentials you would need to cook with - we were able to use it to cook a variety of meals however we had to use the dining table in the lounge room to chop our vegetables.
Martina Franca is a lovely town with a beautiful character-filled historic centre and lots of very expensive clothing boutiques as well as more affordable shops.
The apartment has 2 neighbours. There is a tenant who lives next door (we only saw him once during 5 days) and Giuliana and her family live upstairs. Giuliana was very responsive and accommodating on the few occasions we went upstairs to ask for something. She also gave us some vegetables and fruits from the garden and gave us a a large slice of a freshly made cake upon our arrival.
Being on the ground floor, the apartment is quite dark and we generally needed the lights on during the daytime. Conversely, in the mornings the bedroom became light early because there are no blackout shutters. There were also a lot of mosquitoes about when we stayed and we had to be vigilant in keeping the front door closed - the windows have flyscreens so no problem.
All in all, this is a nice apartment and we had an enjoyable stay.
What a lovely apartment, set in the garden of a charming villa, very quiet, very spacious , and we'll appointed . Giuliani was a wonderful host and nothing was a problem and we were made to feel very welcome. Martina Franca is a gorgeous town and the centro storico is very beautiful and lovingly looked after. We enjoyed our stay very much. We would recommend this "Charming apartment In villa" to any traveller.
We had a very nice stay in this apartment which is located on the first floor of this charming house. Perfect terrace for breakfast & lunch outside under the sun ; ). The apartment is very practical with everything you need - wifi, a nice double bed, a big living room and a pratical kitchen.
Many things to do in the area (grotte di castellana, alberello, locorotondo...) Just one thing there is another apartment next door which was also rented. Our neighboor was really friendly, he was Italian and was working all day long. It was absolutely no problem. Giuliana, her husband and daughter were really nice. Grazie ; )
Le giornate passate in questo appartamento sono state veramente rilassanti.
Silenzioso, in mezzo alla natura, nel contesto di una elegante proprietà, la base ideale per scoprire questa affascinante parte della Puglia.
Padroni di casa ideali, simpatici, estremamente discreti e disponibili.
La villa di Giuliana supera le aspettative derivate dalla visione delle foto pubblicate e la gentilezza dimostrata, anche dal marito e dalla figlia, hanno reso il soggiorno piacevole.
Ulteriore nota di merito è stata la disponibilità della lavatrice e del parcheggio interno.

About the Host, Giuliana
Hi! My name is Giuliana, I’m married and I have a daughter 23 years old. I live in an amazing villa in the countryside, composed by some different flats where I can host my friends from Airbnb. I’m a psychotherapist and I really love arts, music, theater, cinema and literature. I love travelling all around the world, visiting different places and meeting different people. But what I like most is host and to be hosted in cosy private houses!
