We found Pand'Amuri to be an excellent base for our 5-day off-season exploration tour in Salento. The hotel is situated very conveniently for both the seaside and beaches and the inland historical towns. The rooms are modern and include every convenience, have good, solid beds, the breakfast is tasty and plenty (try the many house-made sweet cakes) and best of all the people at the hotel are truly friendly and helpful. The feeling is like being at home away from home. Poggiardo has even in off-season a couple of very acceptable restaurants and offers a quiet small town atmosphere.
