Lovely palazzo

This is a lovely palazzo in a quiet village, but only 5 minutes drive from Castro. We were out of season so many of the local restaurants were closed, however the palazzo restaurant Casa Di Angelo, was fantastic & excellent value, obviously used by locals too. We would highly recommend eating here, especially their 6 course Fish starter selection. The palazzo is a little difficult to find as there is only a very small notice by the doorbell. Overall a lovely place with good facilities & a beautiful cat!

Amazing base to experience Puglia

A beautiful oasis located close enough to all the must see experiences within Puglia. Whether your interested in beaches, the history, the food or the wine, it’s all at your fingertips here. The team at the hotel are always on hand to help where required. Highly recommend a stay & hopefully one day we will stay again.

Quiet and peaceful

Lovely small hotel in centre of very small village square; car essential if you want to get around as just a couple of bars, restaurants and supermarket in village. Sea nearby. Hotel exactly as described serving wonderful breakfasts with excellent home made cakes. Our room, Edoudo had its own private garden but plenty of places to sit quietly in the gardens and roof top Terrace. Wonderful free spa. All Staff totally superb always friendly, smiling and helpful.

Probably the best hotel we've stayed so far! It's beautiful! We even extended our stay by one more night and would have extended for another if the room was available. The location was perfect for us - in a tiny village but within walking distance to Castro - bigger town (around 20min walk on the roads). Hotel provides bikes at free of charge if walking is not an option. We had Suite Tito - two bedrooms with a huge bathroom and shared terrace. The hotel itself has a Jacuzzi tub on the roof so anyone can enjoy it. Also a spa room with turkish baths and the thermal pool which are also free of charge for hotel guests. Outdoor pool too with sun loungers. Big garden and also the rooftop area where everyone can relax and catch last bits of sun. Also private car parking. Huge variety of breakfast options - fresh fruit, different kinds of cheese, meat options, vegetables, cereals, bread (also gluten free option) and cakes too! The staff is very friendly! Would also like to thank hotel manager Mauro for taking care of our needs prior arriving to the hotel! Will recommend this hotel to everyone and would definitely stay there again!
