We stayed at Francis Vacanze in June. The apartment was well appointed, clean and suitable for 4 adults and twins aged three. It had a large balcony for eating breakfast or dinner whilst enjoying se views.The owner, Raffaele Maschio was very friendly and extremely helpful, sorting out taxis for us to the airport and to other parts of Puglia for a day trip. He also entertained the twins, showing them magic tricks! They begged for more each time they saw him! Most days we walked to a local Beach Club by the sea which had 3 bio-swimming pools, a restaurant and bar, and clubs for the children so we were able to spend some time reading books, chatting whilst they were entertained (doing drawing, playing games) by friendly helpers. We could also walk into the beautiful old town of S. Cesara Terme from the apartment More

We spent two weeks at Francis Vacanze in 2012.
A friend of mine from Melbourne told me about Santa Cesarea Terme, so we decided to spend our children winter school holidays in Salento.
We arrived in late July from the Canberran chilling winter...
We could never imagine how wonderful and how warm it could be, and not only for the weather.
We were lucky to book at Francis: I travelled a lot but rarely I found a spot so amazing.
We were close to the beach. The sea was wonderful and safe and we also had an astonishing view of the bay form our room!
The hotel is new, comfortable and extremely clean (I can say they are crazy about hygiene!).
The cuisine is really excellent and Raffaele and his staff do everything to spoil you.
Raffaele also suggested spots to visit in the Salento Region. I must say that is one of the beauty of Italy. He also introduced us to the incredible world of “Pizzica” a traditional dance which impressed my two little girls!
We came...
