The first criteria in the hospitality business is ‘to like people.’ Sounds simple, but truly, the best visits are those remembered because of that extra mile owners go ensuring guests satisfaction; and here lies the compliment. Otranto Mon Amour owner, Véronique does just that. Very kind, caring and considerate, she has a flair for making her guests feel at home.
Thank you! For arranging my pick up at the train station, delivering me to the bus stop, giving me a raincoat and all other little extras such as … leaving a hotplate out so I could make a late night coffee. Situated at the end Otranto Bay, top floor of a small apartment building, the B & B overlooks town and ocean. The building and B & B are clean and quiet. Rooms not overly large but certainly big enough for a couple. Outside to the right, it’s a picturesque walk into town. To the left, the scenic coastal road continues.
The Benessere Room’s Jacuzzi, soft lighting, make for a romantic ambience. You don’t have to travel coupled to appreciate the use of artistic (often theatrical) surroundings. In fact, it’s Veronique’s individual style that makes her B & B a special destination. The second room of my stay, at the front, was equally enchanting, with a bathroom/shower and spectacular views. If it’s out the ordinary you seek, then Otranto Mom Amour is the place you should try. The rooms are air-conditioned. A previous reviewer mentioned, breakfast is a voucher for coffee/tea and pastry at a nearby café. As note, the B & B provides a basket of fresh fruit, water (sparkling/still) and juice available to guests throughout the day. Basically, hot drinks and food are taken off premises due to the limitation of facilities. Because it was quiet during my visit, Véronique kindly made available a hotplate, kettle, and milk so I could make use of my own coffee. I had anticipated a return visit before departing Italy, unfortunately unpredictable train strikes made this impossible. Hopefully, I’ll have that pleasure another time – “thank you so much Véronique!”
Travel note: Véronique arranges your pick-up/drop off, at bus or train station.
Local buses run to smaller beaches during the summer months and stop at end of August. Check ahead if you don’t have a car. Recommend doing travel research before you leave home, esp. if travelling by local transport. Not all travel agents keep abreast of alternate routes. I found a very helpful agent in Otranto: Ellade Viaggi, at via Gugielmotto d’Otranto, 33 – tel: 0836 801578-801005 English is spoken, and helpful juggling schedules and timetables, accommodation. I was glad I took their advice and pre-booked a cabin on my Brindisi/Greece crossing. The ship was packed. Had I not, I’d never have gotten a cabin on board. You can also purchase bus/train tickets here. The bus stop is across from the agent’s office. Otranto train station is a taxi drive…
