“Paradise Amongst the Olive Trees”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

If you have time and want to enjoy a relaxing vacation italian style, I highly recommend this family run residence in Apulia. Antonella, Enrico and their son Andrea, the owners of the place, made us feel right at home right from the very beginning of our stay. We were once again travelling with our Golden retriever and dogs are not a problem here. We were given an apartment in a quiet part of their residence with a beautiful hundred year old olive tree right infront of our terrace. Our room was simply decorated, the bed was comfortable and we had a kitchen where we enjoyed several meals by cooking ourselves on several occasions after purchasing groceries from the nearby towns. (be aware that groceries can be expensive in the more touristic towns of this area so shopping in Leverano was suggested by the owners where prices were better. We did find a good butcher shop in Porto Cesareo however that had very nice meats for the barbeque at residence gli ulivi and sandwich meats for lunch on the beach. The residence is a good parting point between the towns of Porto Cesareo..the beautiful beaches of Torre Lapillo and Punto Prosciutto (paradise on earth!) which are 15 to 20 minutes drive away. June is a very good month to visit as beaches are not yet crowded and the evenings are still cooler. Do try the olive oil that the residence has to offer..very good as well as the great homemade pastries and cakes that Antonella makes for breakfast. Fresh fish can be bought from the fishermen in Porto Cesareo so I was told.. Also nice to bring home and cook on the barbeque. We just loved it here..and it was so nice to get away from the chaos and traffic of the major seaside towns..and return amongst the olive trees.
