Hotel Godenizzo
Ranked #19 of 23 Hotels in Peschici
Reviewed September 19, 2013

This is now the third time I have enjoyed the extraordinary atmosphere of Godenizzo. If you want to get fanciful about it, or romantic -- as I clearly want to do -- and if you hope to explore notions of inner and outer beauty -- in other words, Italianate style in all its wonderful rococco permutations -- this is the place for you: beautiful people; wonderful cuisine; picaresque setting; gorgeous cliffs and majestic beaches.
Sunsets both east and west add a cosmic dimension; the aesthetic senses are further enhanced by unusual local touches.
Peschici, nearby, is an old-world 'city' where ample shops can provide you with everything, from fresh produce to native American Indian hand-crafted jewelry, secured annually by its proprietor on trips out west.
You can self-style your meals or, more wisely, ask for the house favourites. (Ask for scrambled eggs cooked in local olive oil for breakfast.) Four generations of family can be observed nightly and a very international clientele warm to the place.
To my Italian-American mind, what is most reasurring is that Godenizzo is a place that preserves traditional values at the most accomodating rates (to descend from the sublime to the everyday).
Therefore -- I hope to say convincingly -- you will not improve on what Elena, Mattea, Pascale, and 'Momma' have to offer anywhere in Puglia , and if you, as I, believe 'each life is unique, never ordinary', no where else on earth.
It really is 'heaven on earth'; and naturally gives rise to hyperbole. (Quite obviously!) As a product of three cultures, I'd like to think I can vouch for Leibniz's remark, that this is the 'best of all possible worlds'.
One can't say enough about the place; I suspect I have. All I can say, then, is. . .
'Try it; you will like it' says the American ad of years ago.
It might even make you 'jump for joy'.

A warm Italian welcome awaits guests to this delightful and relaxing hotel. Our room overlooked the Adriatic where we spent our days swimming, and the wooded hillsides where goats forage and local delicacy fichi d'India (prickly pears) can be found amongst the olive groves. In the evening there is delicious local cuisine, with friendly and very helpful service. I would heartily recommend the Godenizzo to fully explore the local area.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the sea are recommended.

After a recommendation from a friend, we stayed at Hotel Godenizzo for two weeks from the start of September and what a treat it turned out to be. This hotel has a great atmosphere and reminds me of all the very best attributes of Italy. Friendly people, great service, wonderful food.A special place, perfect for a relaxing holiday. Ideally located just outside the town of Peschici, there is a great sandy beach a few minutes drive away and the hotel nestles in a deep green valley above the coast. Pure Magic!

Room Tip: Rooms at the top of the hotel have the best views.

I stayed at Hotel Godenizzo for 2 nights in August with my parents and brother. The host was very welcoming and spoke very good English which made things very easy for us. Views on the balcony of our room were spectacular and the surrounding area is both beautiful and peaceful. You can easily get into town with a 10 minute drive. The breakfast laid out each morning was delicious with croissants, homemade jams, and fresh fruit. We were full enough to last until dinner. Can't wait to return in the future.

We happened to pass thru the Gargano and we stopped at Godenizzo
for a one night and we ended staying for a week.We were surprised to find someone speaking english and available for any information we needed. The place was quiet and cozy and surrounded with beautiful flowers.
The food was excellent, homemade pasta, desserts and fresh fish. We are planning to go back this summer.
