A beautiful spot in the olive groves
We stayed at the Grove in the "Oak" room for three nights and wished we could stay longer. Upon arrival we were given grapes and melon and watermelon and vegetables and delicious baked treats. We spent each breakfast and some lunches and dinners at the outdoor table, in gorgeous leafy surroundings. Everything needed to cook was provided. The kids went across the yard each morning to feed the goats grass (there are goats, bunnies, a pony, a pig, and cats). It was a short drive to Locorotondo and Martina Franca, both towns worth visiting, and it didn't take more than 30 minutes to get to the beach at Torre Canne or to Ostuni, which is wonderful. It was cool in the trullo at night even though we were there in August -- we didn't have to use the AC. There were a few mosquitoes, but there are screens and shutters on all the windows. We made friends with Tufo, the fluffy gray and white cat, or she made friends with us: she came to our door every morning to say hi. Thank you, Mimmo and Erminia, for your warm hospitality!
You are very special! Thanks a lot for this well description and words. We hope see you again! You are welcome!!
Beautiful house, kindest hosts, astonishing paese
We travelled to Cisternino after a week in Salento. When we arrived, we were welcomed by a family whose warmth and hospitality is extraordinary. On the first day, Erminia told us something like “Oh, I thought you were arriving later! I’m so sorry! Just wait until 4, then the focaccia will be ready!” (besides welcoming us with a fridge full of beverages, milk, organic fruit, fresh bread and a home made cake.) The location is ideal to make short trips around the region. The kids made friends with the cats! (not to mention the cow, pig, bunnies and goats!). Such hospitality is hard to come by, and the house had everything we needed for our family of two adults and two teens. Thank you so much, Erminia, Mimmo and the whole family, for the most wonderful stay! Can not wait to come back!
Oh we are really happy to read these words, fill our hearts with joy. We always try to make our guests feel at home and taste local produce. We are happy to have succeeded!
You have a beautiful family, we hope to see you again!!
This property is amazing! We were arriving late at night and were concerned we would get lost but the owner Mimmo sent us a google map link which was perfect and the house is easy to find coming from Brindisi - just past a small village and a few minutes walk from a really lovely restaurant. There were some homemade cakes and biscuits and fresh fruit waiting for us when we arrived which were delicious!
The communication when we were arranging the booking was very responsive and we were so pleased when we arrived - It is very comfortable and well equipped, and spotlessly clean. There are lovely gardens with hammocks, tables and chairs, swings and a slide for the children, and our daughter loved seeing and feeding the goats, rabbits and horse!
The property is very near to Alberobello and just driving around near the house there are so many trulli buildings which are so pretty. It is close to Martina Franca which is a beautiful town, and also to Ostuni which we liked a lot. Matera is a longer drive - I think it took about 1.5 hours - but was really worth it and was a pleasant journey through the national park.
I will definitely recommend all of my friends to stay here if they are planning to visit Puglia and we would love to come back. Thank you all Mimmo and family!
Your comments and wonderful description were delightful and we are truly grateful. We intend to continue working in the same way – and maybe even get better as time goes by! We hope very much to see you again – you were fantastic guests. Hopefully we shall welcome others such as yourselves in the future. We send you all our best wishes from Puglia.
We want to be back!
We have just returned from our trip to Italy. We stayed in Grove in the Valle D'Itria in two bedroom unit for 3 weeks. I wish we could have stayed longer, in fact I wish we were still there! Thats how welcome Erminia & Mimmo made us feel. I also wish we spoke more Italian. The property is awesome, it has everything you will ever need, plus all the baking that Erminia delivered. The property was cleaned every Friday and the bath towels were replaced twice per week. It is located close to some of the most beautiful and untouched Puglia towns. there is restaurant 200 meters walk which had great food and service, we went there twice (closed Tuesday). We had breakfasts and a few late night wine 'tasting' session on a wonderful veranda. Erminia & Mimmo thank you very much for your hospitality.

Bella casa, ottima pulizia ed accoglienza
I miei punteggi sono sempre misurati: perciò le cinque stelle sono meritatissime e l'appartamento vivamente consigliato!!!
All'arrivo abbiamo trovato una bella casa con giardino e spazio fruibile dai bambini intorno (con annessi docili animali che hanno reso il soggiorno dei figli sicuramente più movimentato ed allegro). La casa era molto pulita, comoda come punto di partenza per gite in diverse località turistiche e dotata veramente di tutto (olio, zucchero, caffè...) compresi alcuni dolci fatti da Erminia che abbiamo trovato all'arrivo! Nei nostri viaggi abbiamo avuto modo di soggiornare in diversi appartamenti ma non abbiamo mai trovato una tale accoglienza!! Grazie ancora di tutto!!! Siamo stati veramente bene e speriamo di tornare presto!!
Per tutti semplici parole, per noi parole da portare nel cuore sempre, come soddisfazione personale, come auspicio nel migliorare continuamente e come gioia per aver soddisfatto il viaggio di una famiglia. Infinite volte, grazie!
Nella speranza di rivedervi, un caloroso abbraccio dalla Puglia!
Reizendes Häuschen in dem man sich auch gut aufhalten konnte, perfekt für die Kinder mit den Tieren, reizende Gastgeber, die einen mit selbstgebackenem und köstlichem Mozzarella begrüßt haben und sehr hilfsbereit waren. Wir können es nur empfehlen.
Thank you very much for the nice words, hoping that you have been well, we invite you for an upcoming return!
