Review 5315: The Puglia, Casa del Negroamaro
1bed/1bath house in Guagnano (near Lecce), Puglia
May 2012, 12 days
The house is located in the center of the village of Guagnano, in the heart of the negroamaro wine-making area of Puglia. Guagnano is a small village of about 5,000 people perfect for visiting wine-producers in the Salento.
Everything in the village is walking distance: multiple fruit and vegetable vendors, supermarkets, coffee bars, even a couple of restaurants.
The building is in excellent shape: clean, solidly built, and with modern amenities. The house was peaceful even though the bedroom is in the front. The street that runs in front of the house is one-way and not noisy. Next to the bedroom in the front is a sitting/reading room. After that is the dining room and the kitchen and bathroom are in the back. There is also a patio in the back, perfect for meals or drinks in warm weather.
The back patio is private, clean, and comfortable. There are also stairs to the rooftop lookout area.
The furniture is in excellent shape and the house is very clean. There are plenty of chairs and all the areas are very comfortable.
The bed in the master bedroom is very comfortable. There are also two pullout beds for extra people. The bathroom was big enough and the shower perfect: clean and with enough space.
The kitchen is great: usable and fully equipped. There are enough pots, pans, and dishes to cook a dinner for several people. It feels like a place where someone actually lives.
Problems or Bonuses
It was a great surprise to find this place in the middle of a village that is not touristy at all! I cannot wait to go back!
Agency and Representatives (and price)
Fabio, the owner of the agency, responds to emails very quickly and speaks perfect English. He is very professional and knows a great deal about the area. He provided excellent suggestions for place to visit and things to do. He was a joy to deal with!
Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?
I recommend this rental whole-heartedly!
Things to do in this area
There are five great wineries in and around the village, so this is the perfect location for wine-lovers. There is also a great eatery in the village (L'Orecchietta) where we ate literally twice a day every day: home-made, super tasty food!
