“Our wonderful holiday in Puglia”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This was our 4th stay with Kathy and Ray and it was even better than before. We were met like old friends and after a hot drive from the airport the ice cold prosecco we were given, lifted our flagging spirits. Once again the fridge was stocked with local cheese, meats and local red wine. What a great way to start a holiday! The apartment was as lovely as ever and our raised courtyard outside, was dripping with many varieties of plants. Sitting outside, eating breakfast, lunch or dinner and bathed in the warm sun, was always a treat after dreary England. Puglia has much to offer and with Kathy and Ray's help we were able to discover even more than before. We will certainly return for our 5th stay with Kathy and Ray; the sooner the better.

“Great value”

I stayed alone in verde for 2.5 weeks in august where friends came and went. There was one bedroom and a sofa bed in the lounge This well kitted out apartment has everything you need for a comfortable stay without going overboard. The price is very reasonable and kathy the owner is close by, unobtrusive but extremely helpful. The welcome pack was very appreciated. The area takes a wee while to uncover its full charms, there is a mixture of lovely wee towns, beaches within 20-30 mins and industry. A car is absolutely essential. Sogliano Cavour is a small local town with a couple of restaurants, cafés/bars, supermarket and a few local shops. Beware the church bells, they are your early morning alarm and become slightly manic on Sundays!

We stayed for two weeks in the Apartment Verde which is upstairs from Studio Violetta. We had intended to book the studio as there was just the two of us but as there was no-one in Apartment Verde we were offered it at the same price. Apartment is very spacious and comfortable. All modern appliances put in from new (this is a complete renovation, brilliantly done by the host, who is a master-builder, and his wife, of a 300-400 year old house). Located in the very centre of Sogliano Cavour.
Although it was mid September to beginning of October the temperature was mainly 30-35 degs. Even so we didn’t need the air conditioning as the walls are so thick it keeps the temperature down. Nice little balcony outside – lots of pot-plants on low walls -with chairs/sunshade. Also foldaway dryer/airer.
Hosts live in adjoining house, interesting to talk to and are very helpful with any queries and can direct you to places to eat or places of interest to visit. Plenty of information in apartment also.
Very handily situated for visiting surrounding area : equi-distant from east and west coasts with good beaches – our favourite was Baia Verde which was very secluded (take your own drink and eats – no bars) and accessed by parking and walking a short distance (200 metres) though a pine forest.
Interesting old towns/ports abound. We visited Otranto (where the castle had an Andy Warhol exhibition), Gallipoli, Lecce and other smaller towns/villages. Corigliano was close by and has a fine castle, which became a private residence a long while back, where you can eat in a restaurant (although we didn’t). La Puteca restaurant near the castle does the most fantastic seafood risotto (must order the risotto for minimum two persons). They take credit cards, which is handy as lots of restaurants don’t, especially in smaller villages.
Traffic signage is a bit confusing if it’s your first time in Italy (at least in this area). Arrows indicating left or right often mean straight on (but not always!) Maybe it was just us being a bit dense….
Welcome pack of essentials food/drink wise. Also shampoo/soap provided.
All in all we couldn’t fault it and we’re sure you will find it agreeably surprising.
One point - although I have indicated it as suitable for older travellers (we're 70 and 64), there is a steep-ish flight of steps to access the property.
