After sightseeing for a week in Rome, Naples, Capri and Pompeii my friend and I decided to travelled East to Rodi Garganico to relax. We booked to stay at the Albergo 2 Pini resort for 7 nights and were made to feel very welcome the second we arrived at this Family run business. We were first greeted by the grandmother of the family; Rita who despite having very limited English was eager to talk to us, learning the English as she went along by pointing and using hand gestures.
We were then introduced to Rita’s daughter Lucia who speaks fluent English and was more than happy to show us around the resort. Nothing was too much trouble for Lucia who was always happy to help. We had booked a twin bedded room and upon arrival asked if it would be possible to swap to one of the self catering apartments. she was very accommodating and moved us straight away at no extra costs.
The resort itself is beautiful and very well maintained and the fresh water pool which is cleaned every day has stunning views overlooking the sea. As we were self catering we only used the restaurant once during our stay but the food was top quality and the service excellent.
The beach is about a 10 minute walk from the resort or a 2 minute drive. The hotel has its own section of the beach with beach bar and parking just for the residents of the Resort. Upon our arrival at the beach we were given a friendly welcome by Lucia’s father Antonio who manages this section of the beach.
There are plenty of picturesque villages and scenic sights nearby to visit; the two main attractions are the Isole Tremiti and the Grotte both of which are well worth seeing. Lucia was more than happy to arrange tickets for these trips for us and also gave us directions to other areas of interest.
This resort is in a fantastic location and is run by a friendly and enthusiastic family all of whom contributed to making our holiday in Italy special, we will be coming again.
