We all loved staying in the B&B and Carpignano, with a great host and everything taken care off. You are right in a beautiful town enjoying the traditional Italian lifestyle. Our best stay in Italy, highly recommended, just go ahead and book.
It is one of those few places that serves as an superior location to which every another would be compared. Great, cosy and well designed space in an authentic place. Perfect breakfast served by friendly staff plus Giuseppe's local restaurants recommendations made this stay unforgettable. Courtyard available for guests is a perfect spot for an evening with a glass of Primitivo. All the surrounding beaches and historical highlights of the region are easily and fast accessible by car. Definitely coming back and highly recommended
Giuseppe's apartments are fantastic. They represent very good value for a very beautiful place to stay in southern Puglia.
We have three teenage boys and the location was perfect for us to use as a base to explore the region: the beaches, Gallipoli and Lecce are all very close and easy to reach from here.
The apartment was stylish, very comfortable and perfect for a short stay in what was very hot weather.
We would wholeheartedly recommend this place to stay and Giuseppi as a great host.
My boyfriend and I stayed in Salento guesthouse early June and we so very much enjoyed our stay! Giuseppe and Zuzanna did everything to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Giuseppe's family have lived in the house for 600 years (!!!) so you can imagine that he was able to tell us a lot about the area and had great tips for places to eat etc. The breakfast was amazing, everyday a little bit different thanks to Zuzanna's delicious baking :)
We had rented a scooter, which was great for just going to the beach, but for the day trips we had planned it was a bit inconvenient. So definitely make sure to go there by car, but otherwise the guesthouse is very strategically located for discovering the region.
Giuseppe and Zuzanna are working very hard to renovate a few other apartments in the centro storico of Carpignano (looks very promising) and they just installed internet in the Suites. We would recommend staying with them to anyone!!
Booked the self contained apartment for a 5 day high summer visit to attend a christening. The rooms were high ceilinged, cool and had character. Giuseppe is an excellent and multi-lingual host. The church was across the road and the early mass more than compensated by the lovely surroundings and wonderful communal breakfast with the other guests. A great base for beaches, vineyard and olive oil producers and sight seeing Puglia. Town typical, sleepy and very laid back with good restaurants within walking distance. Best to arrive off high season as many northern Italians come "home" for the holidays. All-in-all somewhere I would go back to.
