We stayed in the Villa Pirata for three nights and really enjoyed our time there. Although we were away most of the time to visit Bari, we felt very welcome and free to come and go as we wanted. Even though the house isn't close to the city centre, it is easy to reach while the autobus takes you in 20 minutes to the city. The room and bathroom were clean (as the rest of the house). It is a great place for students who are travelling in the south of Italy and who don't want to spend much on housing.
A Villa pirata ho passato 3 giorni perfetti: calda accoglienza, persone speciali, un paradiso per i bimbi: I MIEI FIGLI L'HANNO ADORATA!!!! Ma non pensate che io voglia contraddire le recensioni dei miei predecessori... è solo che organizzazione impeccabile e igiene irreprensibile non sono tra le mie priorità: i calzini sporchi in giro ci sono ancora, ma non ci si fa caso, perchè intorno a quei calzini c'è un mondo stimolante, creativo, generoso. Insomma Villa pirata, la consiglio a chi voglia fare un viaggio; a chi invece cerca solo un alloggio ben pulito dove appoggiare le valigie e si limita a pretendere qualche buon giorno e buona sera, suggerisco di cercare altrove. Ancora qualche dettaglio che riassume metaforicamente il mondo di Villa pirata: il pesante cancello su strada che barrica il comprensorio... è solo accostato; il secondo cancellone di ferro che protegge l'ingresso in giardino... è sempre aperto; da qualche parte c'è una solida porta blindata... ma nessuno la usa; l'unica reale chiusura della casa è una splendida porta a vetri in una splendida parete di vetro!
This place is probably the cheapest airbnb around Bari but I would not recommend staying here. The room was dirty and smelly. There is only a small window in the room so there is little daylight and hardly any ventilation. The villa itself was smelly of the many dogs living there. The bathroom was used by others, despite the promise it would be for our private use. The people who live in Villa Pirata are all very nice but they need to do more to make this an attractive airbnb.
Tout d'abord nous tenons à remercier Giuseppe pour son accueil et sa gentillesse. Ensuite malheureusement nous avons été très déçus, en effet en regard du descriptif annoncé nous ne nous attendions absolument pas à ce que nous avons découvert.
Tout d'abord le quartier, certes près de la mer et d'une ligne de bus (pratique quand on a pas moyen de locomotion) mais situé dans une zone désaffectée entourée de maisons abandonnées. Nous pensions même nous être trompés.
Ensuite, nous nous attendions à une ambiance chaleureuse, de partage tout compte fait, à part Giuseppe et Tomaso qui ont fait l'effort de nous connaitre, les autres nous ignoraient royalement, répondant au plus court à nos questions. On avait plus l'impression de les déranger qu'autre chose malgré notre discrétion.
Quant au jardin "où l'on peut se prélasser", il s'agit plutôt d'un dépotoir à ciel ouvert, et celà malgré les efforts de Giuseppe pour y remedier.
Enfin, point le plus dérangeant à notre avis, la propreté.
Nous sommes logés au rez de chaussée au meme niveau que le salon la salle à manger la cuisine et... Les animaux. Une odeur de tabac froid/joint/chien/crasse partout et à toute heure. Chaque matin, reveil avec besoin de faire le menage pour trouver un bout de table entre les bouteilles vides / assiettes sales / cendriers pleins / tasses de café sales / tabac à rouler etc. Idem le soir. La cuisine n'en parlons pas, vaisselle jamais faite, gaziniere des plus sales, c'était vraiment difficile. Aussi, les animaux peuvent rentrer dans l'habitation et vu l'odeur, ont fait quelques tours dans notre chambre.
Notre chambre, petite, fonctionnelle mais humide et avec une odeur de chien/ urine de chat forte. La salle de bain privée, pas si privée que cela et je vous passe les details. Les serviettes fournies ne sont quant à elles qu'une illusion.
Ce commentaire peut sembler dur mais nous avons plutot mal vécu nos 5 nuits à la villa pirata et cela malgré la gentillesse et les efforts de giuseppe. Donc pour 37€ par nuit, à 3 € euros près, ceux qui aiment un minimum la propreté, prenez plutot un hotel et passez votre chemin.
Thanks so much to the folks at Villa Pirata for having us! The room was nice and as described. Everyone was chill, laid-back and really friendly. The dogs are sweet, if a bit naughty, and the cat (we only met one, but there are more) was such a funny little guy! We had our own refrigerator and free use of all the common space. We were very comfortable! The only thing I would note is that there are a lot of people smoking inside. This was totally fine by me, and I chatting and smoking with Giuseppe and his lovely girlfriend. However, if smoke really bothers you, it might not be the best set-up.
As other reviewers noted, the place is a ways outside of Bari's downtown, but it is right on the sea. There is even a little beach area at the end of the street - it's beautiful! Also, the bus drops you right by the house, so getting to/from town is easy enough. Just take note that the are infrequent and don't always keep to a schedule, so you will want to leave yourself plenty of time if you are trying to catch a train in/out, for example.
Bari is also a good base for getting to other places. We visited Polignano a Mare while we were there, and it is easily one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen!
Thanks again to everyone!
We couldn't find a better accomodation for our holiday in Bari. Not only the hostes have been great, but also the villa is very spacious, there is a garden and the sea is just in front of the building. It's been amaizing spending 6 days in a house full of interesting and alternative people, they gave us brilliant advices about the city and the region. We were free to use the kitchen, the washing machine and wifi. The villa is 5 km far from the city center, so it would be better to rent a car because there is a bus only every 30 min.
I recommend this villa!
L'accueil de Guiseppe et de Elton John a été très chaleureux. Chambre propre avec 2 lits jumeaux, idéal pour moi et ma fille. A quelques km du centre mais bus toutes les 1/2 heures. Prix imbattable. L'ouverture du portail d'entrée pas facile mais ne nous a pas résisté! Bonnes chances à tous les jeunes qui partagent cette location et adoptent un mode de vie alternatif. Merci Guiseppe.
Very nice people and a cool place to stay. The bus stop is very close and also the sea. It's clean and frida the dog is lovely. The guys hellped us with every question that we had. Next time I will stay in the same place for sure :).
Villa pirata is a great place where to stay. Near by the sea and quickly reachable from the center.
We had acces to our own bathroom and fridge. We could use the kitchen. The room is really nice too!
The only thing is that the house is a little bit hard to find the first time. Also, transport is really difficult on sundays.
In general, our stay was perfect, we recommand !!
The place was ok, however not so clean and cold. We have been there in January and there was very little heating which was much needed for us. Guys there was very nice, that is for sure!
Another fact for us, it was not on the pictures, that the Villa is in a very bad place out of Bari with a lot of abandoned houses.
