The town of Giurdignano is a great little place, in the evenings of course ! ... check-in was easy, great hosts !!! ... our daughter truly enjoyed the swimming pool every day. Great weather in July .... thank you Il Calesse ...

Sehr sauberer und ordentliche Unterkunft mit freundlichen Gastgeber und schönen Pool. Das Frühstück ist gut. Verbesserungsvorschlag wäre Frischer Saft und moderne Möbel sowie Plastikgeschirr beim Frühstück sollte gegen normales ausgetauscht werden. Wir würden wieder kommen.

Lovely stay in the beautiful area of Apuglia. Nearby tasty, origin restaurants. About 8 km to Otranto. The hotel is very clean, the smell of fresh laundry is everywhere in the room. Every second day we got fresh duvet covers. The breakfast ist sweet and so tasty. But also mixed with fruit, ham, cheese and local bread variations (very good). We really loved and enjoyed the stay and we would come back for sure! Thanks a lot.

Posizione comoda per visitare il Salento.
Tutto molto curato e pulitissimo. Colazione ottima e varia adatta a tutte le esigenze. Camera ampia e bagno nuovissimo e grande. Trovare l’acqua minerale nel frigo e bagnoschiuma nel bagno è stata una bella sorpresa. Posizione ottima per visitare il Salento e godere del bellissimo mare sia Adriatico che Ionico.
