We were please with the apartment, fresh and comfortable and with the smooth arrival and departure. The apartment was well situated in Otranto to both beach and the historical center. Otranto was a good base for enjoy southern Puglia.
Luigi upgraded us to Apartment n.8 which is a similar apartment to n.7 but with a HUGE private terrace overlooking the castle. It really is a fabulous space with giant cacti on one side and giant shells on the other (plus table and chairs and sun loungers).
Our 1 yr old had a fabulous time commando crawling around and pulling himself up to shout at the traffic below whilst we enjoyed the sun loungers and watching the late afternoon sun colour the sandstone of the old town and castle.
The whole building is kept spotlessly clean including the terraces (and cleaning and drying equipment are kept in an outside cupboard in case, like us you have a messy eater to clean up after).
Otranto is a beautiful place and we very much enjoyed our spring break. Luigi and his parents (who live in the building) were very helpful with providing baby cot etc and we would recommend the apartments.
We arrived at the Residence Castello a bit later than we thought having misjudged the time it took to drive down from Bari but we were welcomed by Luigi's wonderful mother who showed us around the apartment.The apartment was spotless with two terraces - one with a fabulous view over the castle - and well equipped with all that we needed for our stay (though a couple of wine glasses would have been nice ;-) ) The bed was very comfy and air conditioning is there if you need it and a small safe is provided for any valuables. There is also private parking under the building which was very useful. Wifi connection was included and very reliable.
The apartment is just five minutes from the beach and just a couple of minutes from the old town where there are some superb and very reasonable restaurants. We will certainly come back one day.
We would like to thank Luigi's mother for the kind gift of a big bag of delicious home grown tomatoes and for making our stay so enjoyable. We cannot recommend the Residence Castello highly enough and would like to thank Luigi and his family for such a lovely, relaxing experience.
