House with good potential in a great location
The house is in a great location in old Otranto and has beautiful outdoor space. We loved the terraces and spent most time out there. The hosts are vey responsive and helpful. However they do not live in town and that might be part of the problems that need to be fixed. The house feels a bit neglected , as for cleaning (kitchen and outdoor space) and maintenance of appliances (few examples: the refrigerator freezer door was broken, the kitchen cookware, dishes, glassware, cutleries were insufficient, the Nespresso coffee machine broke after first use, etc..). Finally the online listing misrepresented the availability of 2 bathrooms ( one of the bathroom is in a separate space at the first floor and is not connected to the main house, there is no elevator connecting the 2 properties as listed). We made a mistake as we thought that there were 2 double bedrooms (we did not pay attention while booking attracted by the photos of the outdoor!). The second bedroom has bunk beds. It is a home suitable for a family with kids , not to two pair of adults. We made it work and enjoyed our staying anyway, using the comfortable bunkbed mattresses on the couches. Overall the house has the great potential to become a "prestigious" apartment (as stated) but as for now is quite far from that.

5/5 Excellent

Superb rooftop terraces
We loved our holiday in Otranto. This apartment is in the best location with fabulous views from the terraces. We were given a friendly and helpful welcome by Andreas and the accommodation was clean, secluded and quiet yet just steps away from cafe's, bars, the Castle and the beach. We were particularly impressed by the quality and variety of food in all the restaurants and the service and friendliness of the staff there and by the rest of the community that we encountered. We also enjoyed buying freshly caught local fish and veg to cook in the outside kitchen. I'm looking forward to booking again in the future. Many Thanks to the owners.

Schöne Unterkunft mitten in der Altstadt mit herrlichen Dachterassen
Das Wichtigste vorweg : Die Dachterassen sind einmalig schön. Die Wohnung zieht sich über mehrere Ebenen hin,liegt mitten im Centro Storico und Gott sei Dank etwas abseits der touristischen Rennstrecke Via Garibaldi.Es sind 2 Eingänge da.Wir haben immer nur den oberen ( Via Piacentini ) genutzt.Wenn man dann rechts geht,kommt über kleine,ruhige Gassen schnell zum Meer,wo auf der linken Seite ein schöner Strand ist (Spiaggia libera und auch bewirtschaftete Abschnitte.) Die 3 Terrassen:Die überdacht,verfügt über eine eigene Küche ( Gasherd,Spüle,Grill ),Tisch und Stühle .Dort kann man immer Schatten haben.Die 2. Terrasse liegt ein paar Stufen höher und hat vor allem Sitzbänke.Dort kann man abends gut lesen.Ausserdem hat man eine gute Aussicht über die Stadt und zum Meer.Bei guter Sicht sieht man die Berge Albaniens.Auf der noch zwei Stufen höheren 3.Terrasse stehen einige Liegen.Auch von dort ist die Aussicht phantastisch.Die beiden oberen Terrassen bieten keinen Schatten.Wir haben eine Plane durch die Stäbe der Pergola gelegt ,die hoffentlich überlebt. Die Schlafzimmersituation ist nicht ideal : Das grosse Schlafzimmer ist ok.Das kleine mit dem 2-stöckigen Bett arg klein.Das dritte Schlafzimmer liegt ausserhalb der Wohnung und ist nur über den Aufzug erreichbar. Das Wohnzimmer und die Küche sind auch ok.Die kücheneinrichtung entspricht italienischem Standard ( d.h. wenig Geräte ) Die beiden Badezimmer ( eines in der oberen Wohnung,das andere bei dem dritten Schlafzimmer ) sind ebenfalls ok. Service und Information sind eher zurückhaltend,was aber nicht unangenehm sein muss.Italienische Grundkenntnisse sind sicherlich von Vorteil. Trotz der kleineren genannten Einschränkungen wegen der tollen Terassen und der schönen Lage eine absolut empfehlenswerte Unterkunft.

Il massimo in un centro storico.
Abbiamo trovato la casa di estremo comfort e estremante spaziosa. Gli interni sono molto curati ed estremamente puliti, ogni stanza è dotata di climatizzatore di alta qualità. Gli arredamenti sono decisamente nuovi e in ottime condizioni. Vi sono molto armadi dove riporre i propri indumenti. Stanza da bagno con doccia idromassaggio , tutto funzionale. Gli esterni sono eccezionali : 3 enormi terrazze (su 3 livelli ) estremamente illuminate e in una di esse c'è una grande cucina con cassapanca , tavolo da esterni e sedie. Sei in pieno centro storico , all'uscita della dimora sei nel cuore di Otranto. I proprietari francesca e andrea sono persone fantastiche , disponibilissime per ogni tipo di consiglio. Voto complessivo della casa : 9 Semplicemente GRAZIE ! Massimo
