“Perfectly Ideal”
Reviewed 20 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We are lovers of all things Italian and have visited many parts of Italy but had never ventured this far south before and what a joy it was. Sogliano Cavour is a bustling working town but with it's own charm and located as it is almost equidistant between the Ionian and Adriatic coasts it makes it the ideal location to go off exploring.
Kathy and Ray (the owners) could not have been more helpful, their warm welcome after a fairly fraught early morning flight from Gatwick started the holiday on a great note. The apartment is very good indeed, the refurbishment carried out by Ray is top quality, the interior is beautifully decorated and the facilities are first class.Outside there is a delightful terrace where we breakfasted, and so well equipped was the kitchen that we cooked for ourselves on more than one occasion and ate on the terrace enjoying the warmth well into the night. We have already booked our return visit next year and there can be no higher recommendation than that. Thankyou Kathy and Ray.

“Not many as good as this”
Reviewed 14 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Chic and terrific. The apartment is brilliantly, tastefully and functionally kitted out. In fact, after years of renting, this hits the # 1 spot for kit out: good beach umbrella, foldable beach seats, great Italian related dvds, books, including Italian food cook books for inspiration, Roberts radio, quality TV, excellent selection of kitchen utensils and very efficient air conditioning, which is a godsend in unusually hot weather and a perfect shower. The pied-de-terre garden is well shaded, secluded, but open enough for a breeze and surrounded by a variety of lovely pot plants including superb chilli and basil that Ray encourages you to use. Do!

Ray and Kathy live next door and are caring, unobtrusive and very informative hosts: their favourite beaches, restaurants, historical insights, all on tap and worth following. Parking is free and no hassle, with Sog Cavour a very pleasant, attractive small town with easy access to the architectural (Lecce may be on your radar but check out Galantina 5km away - stunning), culinary and coastal wonders of Puglia: Italy does not come much rawer than this and hardly any tourists, so bring a dictionary as English (even a few words) is rarely spoken. Thoroughly recommended all round.

Dear Jamie and Kathy, thank you so much for your lovely review about your stay in Apartment Verde. We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Verde and the unspoilt small town of Sogliano Cavour and also visited some of the places recommended by us and hope to welcome you back again some day. We agree that Galatina is a great place and as the town is only a short drive away it can be visited frequently.

Best regards,
Kathy and Ray

“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!
