We planned a spur of the moment visit to Puglia to meet up with our son, his wife and their baby (who live in Sweden) and this wonderful villa was exactly what we were looking for...a peaceful, quiet and relaxing location in the bounty of the Gargano. The hosts were so wonderful to us; they shared their bounty in so many ways, with food, goods from their garden, their table, and their friendship, which we hope to maintain for years to come. The accommodations were perfect; the kitchen was exceptional and our son, who loves to cook, couldn't have been happier. This home has been perfectly restored to offer everything you may be looking for and the terrace above offered an eye-watering view of Lago di Varano and beyond to the Adriatic. Not far, you will find quaint villages with good markets and restaurants, sea-side walks and beaches, and a visit to Vico del Gargano and other Adriatic villages nearby should not be missed. It's a pefect location in the Gargano, and you are surrounded by ancient olive trees, and gardens, and just pure beauty. The outdoor space for children is perfect! Do not miss an opportunity to stay here. I know we will be back again - and soon, I hope! Thank you, hosts!
What a wonderful family run complex. Great location, easy to get to other places or just stay and never leave. Raffi runs the place with the help of his family and in-laws. The pizza chef is his father-in-law and mother-in-law runs the kitchen. His father runs the 'farm' and takes care of all the olive trees. Raffi not only runs the place but he has been adding more units and he builds them himself. They are all great units even the older ones. They are all separated with private lawn areas and BBQ. There is a great pool, too bad it was raining and we couldn't use it. There is also a play structure/area for kids and a laundry building with washing machines.
I wish we could have stayed longer and the weather had cooperated, but it must be a wonderful place during the summer for families with kids.
We will be back!
