My wife and I and our two friends stayed here for 3 nights in mid-June. The house has been beautifully and creatively restored, with fine craftsmanship and attention to detail. With a loft sleeping area above, and queen bedroom plus trundle-beds room below -- each level with its own bathroom -- it's perfect for a family or group like ours for whom a cozy arrangement works. The kitchen is well-equipped and there are convenient grocery options. The place is in a quiet neighborhood toward the lower end of this steep hillside town, with friendly neighbors but plenty of privacy. Lia was great to work with at every step of the way. She and her family gave us a warm welcome, and any questions were quickly addressed. (When we needed new batteries for the AC, our email promptly brought a visit from an English-speaking neighbor who fixed us up; she then helped arrange the delivery of our friends' lost luggage that night!) Mattinata is a maze of narrow, winding streets, often connected by steps going from one level to the next, with lots of shops and restaurants. (Jalant is a wonderful place for dinner, just around the corner from the house.) Don't miss the evening stroll, especially weekends, when it seems like everyone in town is out walking and socializing. The Gargano region of Puglia is stunning and varied and has much to explore; we wished we had more time there than the 3 days we did. When we return, we will definitely try to book this property again!
