The hotel is situated beside a road in a small village in Salento. There are restaurants in the village but better eating is to be had in Otranto which is about 10 minutes by car. The hotel was purpose built about two years ago and retains it's novelty. Much thought has been put into the design of everything, sometimes to the detriment of practicality, but overall extremely good. Andrea the manager speaks reasonable conversational English and we had no trouble in making ourselves understood. The rest of the staff are cheerful and helpful and have basic English. Andrea was most helpful, suggesting restaurants and itineraries for driving around Salento and Puglia. He seems to work all hours but remained cheerful and informative throughout the 4 nights we spent there. The bedrooms are spacious and the bathrooms modern and bright. The shower was the best I have ever encountered in a hotel and everything necessary was provided. The only small gripe was the relative lack of drawer storage in the bedroom but it is perfectly adequate for a short stay. Breakfast is a good, substantial buffet style affair served in a large breakfast area which also has a small bar with most drinks and coffee can be had at any hour that the staff are on duty (definitely up until 10 pm and sometimes later). There is a secure underground car park although cars would appear to be perfectly safe parked in the substantial areas around the hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone travelling in the area.
