La Macchiola
Ranked #3 of 3 Spongano B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 22, 2013

We just spend a week at La Macchiola and I must say we have had a very good time, but the setting was different from what we expected. Somehow we associated a working olive farm with something in the middle of nowhere with many fields around. But the farm is actually in the middle of a small (lovely) village and there is not much greenery around. It has a courtyard (in which we spent most of our time), a swimming pool (that was not open yet though) and a garden across the road (that was not really operational either). The countryside is a few kilometres away, but don't imagine you will step out of your apartment into the olive groves because this is not the case. Anna (the owner) is very friendly and helpful. We also really liked the village, it was very small but had everything we needed and some beautiful old buildings. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a quiet vacation in an authentic Italian village.

La Macchiola provided a comfortable and peaceful base to explore Spongano and the local area including Otranto and Gallipoli.

Anna made us feel very welcome through a mixture of Italian, French, limited English and gestures, our room was large and comfortable with a vaulted stone ceiling, there's also a nice pool in a secluded courtyard.

Breakfast was served in the walled garden each day with a good spread of tea/coffee, fruit juice, Italian custard pastry, yoghurt, fruit and the local Taralli biscuits.

The town itself has a large piazza (Piazza Vittoria) where you can watch the world go by - two bars and the Trattoria da Picalo where the prices are truly 'local', food good and a friendly welcome.

The place we're still talking about is La Strittula, a pizzeria which is mainly a take-away but has some plastic tables/chairs outside, the pizzas were the best we found and the perfect antidote after a few days of antipasti/primi/secondi, even better you eat at take-away prices. It's on Via XXV Aprile, Spongano, Puglia 73038.
