Mediterranean Style with large furnished terraces, breathtaking views overlooking the sea.
This is a wonderful apartment in an interesting building right on the edge of the old town of Otranto. It is extremely well-appointed and furnished, well equipped and exceptionally clean. The bedroom with the vaulted ceiling must be the most impressive room, if not the largest, that I have ever slept in. It has private parking underneath the building. It is in an ideal location opposite the castle and 30 seconds walk from the old town. It has a large shared balcony with other apartments, although we didn't use it while we were there. Luigi is a very good host, even giving us a large bag of home-grown tomatoes and a huge melon! Highly recommended.
We highly recommend staying here on your next trip to Otranto!
We had a great 7 nights stay in Otranto at Luigi's charming apartment. The place was as cosy and well-refined as it looks in the pics and it lies right by the entrance of the old town, the heart of the city. The garage was very practical as it is a hassle in Otranto to find a place for the car.
Very welcoming host as well who among others helped out when we needed a car service. The town is very well positioned in the area of Salento so it was easy for us to travel around to other towns nearby. The old town of Otranto is very nice.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Residence Castello!
The apartment no. 4 is gorgeous, spacious and beautiful. It is fully equipped with everything you might need during your stay. The location is great too, right in the center with the castle just outside and only a few minutes away from the restaurants, shops and a nice beach.
We did not get a chance to meet Luigi himself, but his parents were very kind and helpful, and showed us everything.
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.

Highly Recommended.Luigi and his parents are very friendly and helpful. The apartment, very spacious and clean, is in a perfect location, right in the centre of Otranto, so that you can easily visit the Old Town and go to the seaside. We really enjoyed our time there and we hope to go back soon.
Siamo stati benissimo in questo residence.
Abbiamo soggiornato per una settimana.
L'ubicazione è ottima in quanto si puo' raggiungere il centro storico in pochissimi passi.
We enjoyed our stay at Otranto in the appartment nbr.3!
Luigi and his father were very helpful provinding us all information we needed to spend a great holiday in Salento!
I would recommend it!
Very comfortable appartment, clean, fully-equipped and very convenient location. Unfortunately, we didn't get to meet Luigi, but his parents were lovely and super helpful. Highly recommended!
Highly recommended! - Sehr empfohlen!
Die Wohnung ist sehr sauber und zweckmässig eingerichtet, sie ist nur wenige Schritte vom historischen Zentrum entfernt. Wir wurden von Luigis Eltern Nini und Ginetta herzlich empfangen. Dank ihren Geheimtipps haben wir magische Orte gesehen und die typische Küche Apuliens entdecken können.
Nini und Ginetta hatten für alles eine Lösung und es wurde uns jeder Wunsch erfüllt. Die freundschaftlichen Gespräche in der Garage vermissen wir :-)) Herzlichen Dank auch an Luigi für seinen grosse Hilfsbereitschaft.
Wir haben einen fantastischen Urlaub genossen und die Gastfreundschaft von Familie Raffaele bleibt uns in bester Erinnerung.
In Otranto you can have a greeat culinary, cultural and beach-life experience. It is even better if you spend your holiday at Luigi Raffaele's beautiful apartment. There is very clean, has everything you need, it is very well decorated and furnished, and it is only 5 minutes walk to the beach. The staff is super friendly and useful. Always ready to give you advice.
I strongly reccomend this.
