We're happy to offer you a wonderful typical italian old style house! The house goes from the "heart" to the "sky" through four floors. You'll discover what living in the "borgo antico" mean. The house has any comfort for an unforgettable vacation!
We are pleased to offer you a beautiful building with sea view, located in the heart of Bari Vecchia.
Our house is on three levels, has been recently reconstructed respecting the traditions of Puglia and the surrounding area. The old house , with its stone walls and original floors of the early twentieth century , has a unique character and atmosphere .
Entering the house you will find the living room with a sofa bed, which becomes necessary in two small but comfortable single beds. In this floor there is a small bathroom, ready to go!
Going through a stone staircase, you arrive at the first floor where there is a comfortable bedroom with a double bed and a balcony. Once upstairs you will be greeted in the dining room, where in the attic, there's a fully equipped kitchen. For those who have breath, you need just another flight of stairs and you come to the beautiful terrace overlooking the port of Bari, where you can enjoy yourself during warm summer evenings!

Since our family moved to Rome, this is the house where we spend our time when we are in Bari. Living in the old part of the city has allowed us to know and appreciate better and more deeply, the city where we are all born.

There is a belief in the dining room with dishes that belonged to our grandmother. They have a sentimental value and are very important to us, so we will ask you not to open it.

We had a great and unforgettable vacances in Puglia and Bari vecchia in the second half of August. Thanks goes especially to our super hosts Serena, Francesca and their father Michele who made our stay at their House »Earthsky fabulous.
Serena was very polite and giving us all the information we needed to explore Bari and the most beautiful sights of Puglia, before our arriving. She also suggested us where to taste some delicious puglia food, how to find vegan restaurant for my daughter, where to buy fresh, good and cheap fruit and vegetables from local people. She provided us with maps and all the informations how to reach lovely puglian towns from central railway station and what to visit in all this amazing places. She even informed us that they have some problems with the boiler in the house, but they fixed all before our arriving.
Serenas father Michele and sister Francesca even came to the train station and gave us a ride to their home, they invited us for a coffee and had a short walk with us in Bari vecchia and his surrounding.
Their home is realy perfect and amazing place to stay in Bari! We immediately felt comfortable. What a pleasure to have breakfast and dinner on the roof breathtaking terrace... after exploring Alberobello, Lecce, Matera Pulignano a mare and Monopoli. The house is perfectly clean and well equiped in a perfect location for exploring the old town, just a few minutes walk from the Basilica and the old city walls. There are lots of nice little restaurants nearby and it's only a 25 minute walk to the railway station.We also found free Wi-Fi (email hidden) just in the square next to the house where Paolo and his family serve nice cappuccino and fresh orange juice. All the people in surrounding are very polite and frendly, Bari vecchia has a great heart and soul…. we simply adore this place.
Dear Serena, Francesca and Michele. Thank you for wonderful holidays and a warm welcome in your home. You are amazing superhosts and we hope see you again.

siamo stati ospiti della palazzina "terra cielo" per un fine settimana. è situato nella città vecchia, ed è quindi un po' complicato trovare parcheggio.
a parte questo la casa è molto bella, lo stabile è signorile si fa tanta ginastica su e giù per le scale. il letto è molto comodo e la vista dal terrazzo molto bella.
qualche pecca: sarebbe stato bello riuscire a mangiare in terrazzo se solo la tovaglia non fosse totalmente impregnata dalle spine dei fichi d'india lì presenti.
l'acqua calda è venuta per un giorno solo. la caldaia ha fatto le bizze e non siamo riusciti a risolvere il problema. ergo ci siamo lavati con l'acqua fredda per il resto dei giorni.
presenza di biscotti avariati in cucina.
a parte questi piccoli difettucci serena e sua sorella sono state molto gentili e disponibili. il soggiorno è stato tutto sommato piacevole.
Ciao Valentina! Grazie per aver scelto di stare da noi! Purtroppo il terrazzo è soggetto alle "intemperie" ed alla presenza di piante. Basta uno straccio e la tovaglia torna come nuova. Per quel che riguarda l'acqua calda, se ci avessi segnalato nuovamente il problema avremmo inviato qualcuno per risolverlo prontamente se le indicazioni che avevamo fornito non erano state (website hidden) dispiace per i biscotti, evidentemente dovevano essere stati lasciati da qualche ospite precedente, poichè noi ci curiamo sempre di lasciare qualcosina per la colazione che sia fresca!
L'accueil fut très convivial et l'appartement est encore mieux que sur les photos ! En amont, Serena et Francesca nous avaient envoyé diverses informations utiles sur Bari : comment se rendre à l'appartement de l'aéroport, les coins sympas à visiter, les restaurants où se rendre, etc. De plus, en cas de besoin, elles sont restées disponibles et à l'écoute tout au long du séjour.
Enfin, l'appartement, qui est situé dans le centre historique de Bari, donne l'impression d'être dans un petit village : l'ambiance y est chaleureuse et les habitants sont très serviables.
Ce fut un séjour très agréable !
The atmosphere around the house is charming! Everything what we were dreaming about before our visit to Bari, confirmed absolutely. The location of the house is excellent: in the old town of Bari, but not on tourist path (by the way, very close to all sightseeings). For us it took not more than 7-8 minutes to reach almost every part of the town.
The house is old but seriously renovated some years ago. We found there quite modern furniture, shower room, sinks, etc. Staying there satisfied all our needs. The roof is very useful, we spent plenty of time there.
The owners Serena and Francesca provided perfect support of our holidays. Their recommendations were useful, replies on our messages where fast and informative. Special thanks to their aunt, a person who showed us the house.
We (me and my wife) strongly recommend the house for staying in Bari, especially for 1+ week.
We were absolutely satisfied. The flat looks even better than we expected, so better than you can see on photos! Location is excellent, Concita explained us everything.
We had a great trip. The hosts always replied quickly and promptly to our inquiries, within a few hours. The house perfectly matched the photos and the description. It is a traditional, old house in the historic part of the city. When we arrived we were welcomed by members of the family, they were very kind, explained everything we needed to know about the house, the neighborhood and the region. We spent 6 days in Bari, and also visited some other nice towns nearby. It is very easy to get around by train or bus. It is nice that this area is not so crowded by tourists so much, so you can actually see how local people live there. The only difficulty for us is that traditional restaurants open very late, so it's not easy to get good home made food during the day. I recommend this trip to others as well.
A perfect place to stay in Bari! Located in the heart of old Bari, cozy house with a wonderful terasse on the roof and a beautiful site. We loved having diner on the top. 100% recommendation for this wonderful place. And thanks for the nice welcome!
