What wonderful place. We stayed in the Buganville apartment of the Villa Morocco, the last week of September. It was perfect; clean, comfortable, well equipped, great beds! This traditional thick walled architecture villa, is situated back of the coastal road, just far enough for peace and tranquility but 5 minutes to beaches, towns and the road that takes you every where in the Salento region. We particularly loved the spacious covered porch in the morning and in the evenings, listening to cicadas and crickets. We had the best sleep in this very quiet place. What a gift for our souls! We loved Elisabettas very detailed information printout, which we called “the Bible”, and took her suggestion to eat at Trattoria Tatanka, along the road to Santa Maria di Leuca; we had Orecchiette allo Scoglio, marinated anchovies and scampi…yummy, not to be missed! It is also easy to reach Beautiful Gallipoli and the Adriatic coast from the villa. Silvana, the local manager, was very accommodating and helpful.
Overall a great experience and a perfect relaxing place. Well worth our long trip from New York.
My only regret, it was too short of a stay. We will be back!
We highly recommend Villa Morocco.
Truly a.lovely spot. This large apt fronts the building, overlooking a marina, and the sea. It subsequently has endless fresh air blowing through its many patio doors, and stays cool through the day without canned air. Parking is free in front of the building, and seems very safe. It's a short walk through a tunnel very close to the building, to the main street of Gallopoli, Via Roma. Lots of restaurants, shops, cafes within minutes of the apt, and a fantastic supermercado about 5 minutes away by car called "family" along the lungomare (left from the apt, through two roundabouts, keeping left each time. Good bread, cheese, meat, produce etc...and great prices.
I loved staying here. Gallipoli is charming, as are the very helpful owners of this apt..... Luigi and his wife are friendly and kind.
I could see.myself staying here again...its very pleasant overlooking the water, and taking in the fresh sea air. There are only two negative points I could possibly make and they are that the dogs guarding the marina by night bark constantly when they see or imagine motion, and, the beds are honestly not terribly comfortable. Pretty hard and unforgiving. A great shame, because the apartment is marvelous.
Nearby beaches are beautiful (lido gallipoli) and the old town (centro storico) is wonderful. Recommended!!
