“Home Away From Home”
Reviewed March 27, 2011

After the worst flight ever to Bari, any place would look good. But being greeted by a very friendly owner of Casamare at the airport it was a prelude of a great time in Polignano-a-Mare. The ride from the airport was nice and being in Puglia felt good. Soon we found out that Casamare wasn't just a good place. Its location in the heart of the historic district, its warmness and comfort and its beautiful view of the sea cost from the terrace made us forget the flight and made us feel like home. The owner of Casamare, her architect husband and her two beautiful kids went beyond anything to make us and our daughter as much welcome as possible. The town house was a historical building, neatly restored to a modern home where you could feel the history by just touching the stone walls while being in the middle of a comfortable, beautiful and romantic living room/kitchen with flat screen tv and decorated authenticly by the owner. The bedroom was so cozy and warm perfect for nice and relaxing sleep. The best part was the terrace where the owner had a miniature orange tree that complemented the priceless view of the historic district and the sea. Meters away from the terrace every year takes place the international competition of cliff jumping. The entire town was beautifull and the people were very friendly. We had a chance to visit Ostuni and Alberobelo as well. Our time in Polignano-a-Mare was very short but was very relaxing and far from our daily non-stop life in the USA. We hope very much some day to return there but this time will stay longer and this time we will know what to expext from a such pleasurable place as Casamare.

A great location, within the walled 'centro storico of this pretty, Puglia seaside town, with a rooftop terrace with great views of cliffs and sea, and a friendly owner who can arrange a pick-up if required from Bari airport, 30 minutes along the Adriatic coast. A skilful conversion of a tall three-storey town house to 2 apartments, designed by the owner's architect husband with imaginative use of traditional materials. Breakfast is included at a nearby cafe. We turned up without a booking off season but were made very welcome and offered a really bargain rate for the two apartments, or at and alternative elsewhere in town ; highly recommended.
