“Peace and tranquillity with views to die for”
Reviewed 6 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This was our second visit - we were there just last September and couldn't keep away. That says it all, really! The apartment is superbly equipped and beautifully situated. Ian and Margherita cannot do enough to help and the welcome pack is second to none, with Margherita's delicious home-made jams, a bowl of fresh fruit, eggs, bread, milk, tea, coffee, wine, beer etc etc. There is always some of Ian's home-produced oil too! The affectionate pet dogs and cats make it a home from home: they are always there to welcome you home at the end of every day! The area is unspoilt and utterly beautiful - and relatively undiscovered. Go there as soon as you can!

“Oleandro in October”
Reviewed 30 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

This is a great apartment. It is superbly well equipped and the welcome pack is just about the best I have experienced. The interior is a delight and has the feel of a real home. There's lots of space. The kitchen is a generous size and has everything you might need.
The outside space is fabulous and provides lots of choice with a great pool in a beautifully designed setting.
Margherita and Ian are excellent hosts who look after their guests and ensure their comfort and help them to make the most of their stay. They are available if needed but are very discreet so it seems as if the space is yours alone.
The views across the valley are splendid and the quiet location guarantees peace, quiet and rest from a busier life at home.
Foresta Umbra is well worth a visit and Monte Sant’Angelo is a delightful hill top town.

“A Fantastic Find”
Reviewed 29 July 2011 for a stay in July 2011

This was our second visit to the wonderful Villa Oleandro and intend to return in the future. We loved our first visit and this year was even better with the fantastic new pool.
The apartment offers everything needed for either a peaceful relaxing holiday, by the pool or nearby beaches, or for exploring the beautiful Gargano countryside, unspoilt towns and coastline.
Ian and Margarita are wonderful hosts and made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. They also provided all the information on the local area, shops, restaurants, events etc. The kitchen is very well equipped and the fridge was full of food on arrival.
The apartment is surrounded by a fantastic well equipped outside terrace offering views down the valley to the sea. There was a choice of four outside dining locations. The apartment and outside area is private and we always had the pool to ourselves.
The location of Villa Oleandro does mean you need a car but you are only 10 minutes form Vico de Gargano. Lovely beaches are also only 10 minutes away.
A must experience is to try the local seafood (recommend Miki's restaurant in Vico) and a visit to a Trabucco (fishing platforms, some with restaurants).
This has been a fantastic find for us and would not hesitate in returning.

“A naturalists' paradise”
Reviewed 22 July 2011 for a stay in April 2011

On our visits to Villa Oleandro we have always received a very warm welcome from Ian and Margherita who have a detailed knowledge of the area. We have rented the apartment 6 times, usually in April, as our interest is photographing the wild orchids for which the Gargano is famous. We have also visited in October - the autumn colours were magnificent, particularly in the Foresta Umbra which has extensive well marked footpaths. we will definitely return as there is still lots to see and do.
The apartment is comfortable and very well appointed with an exceptionally well equipped kitchen and large shower room. The log burning stove and a plentiful supply of olive wood gives a very cosy atmosphere on cooler evenings in the early spring and occasionally the central heating has been welcomed. On warm days we really enjoyed dining on the terrace with a view along the valley to the Adriatic.
Shopping is easy and fun in Vico, the ancient local hilltop town with a good food market and several shops, making self catering very easy. Our hosts have introduced us to some excellent restaurants, especially the local Trabucco - an ancient fishing platform.
