The Corte dei Melograni Resort is plunged in the quiet of the olive groves on the road from Otranto to Giurdignano. If you have a car, it's a very convenient location for both visiting Otranto and reaching the nearby beaches such as Laghi Alimini and Baia dei Turchi. An accommodation outside Otranto but very close to it (just some five minutes by car from the town centre) offers the advantages of a totally relaxing quiet and of the free parking inside the resort without having to deal with the search of a not so cheap parking in town. Of course an accommodation in town is a better option if you are not travelling by car, although a shuttle service links the Corte dei Melograni to both Otranto and the most popular beaches.
The resort is a brand new facility, so everything is functional, clean and in order. Each room is accessible directly from the outside, pretty much like in American motels. Our room was quite small but comfortable, furnished in a plain way but in good taste. The bathroom was very comfortable and surprisingly spacious compared to the size of the bedroom. Each room has a French window leading into a veranda with a table, two chairs and a clothes rack. Unfortunately, the French window is equipped with a curtain but not with a shutter, thus letting the morning light flood the bedroom, especially in the summer. Such a brand new facility should have provided a shutter to assure a better sleep quality.
Breakfast is good and abundant. The buffet offers not only a wide choice of sweet food, but also some savoury food such as ham and cheese, quite a rarity in Italian B&B's.
The staff is friendly and helpful. The manager took charge of booking a restaurant in Otranto for us and then called us to confirm our reservation.
The rates fit the value.
