Elegant double bedroom with independent access in prestigious period building in the heart of Otranto historic centre. Vaulted ceiling, modern en-suite bathroom, air conditioned. A stone’s throw form the celebrated Cathedral and the sea/beaches.

The space

The Pied-à-terre is a fully independent unit that is also part of a larger apartment (see, also for reviews). It is intended for guests looking essentially for a comfortable resting place during their holiday in Otranto.

It is located on the ground-floor of a prestigious period building in the heart of Otranto historic centre, right in front of the famous Cathedral. It has recently been restored to a high standard, highlighting several original features in the typical local stone (pietra leccese).

Fully independent, it consists of an elegant, spatious double bedroom, with vaulted ceiling and original tiled floor, and a modern en-suite bathroom. It is air conditioned (heating/cooling). The accommodation is ideal for a couple.

Prices are all inclusive. Bed and bath linen is provided.

Other apartments are available from the same landlords in the same building, or nearby area.

For further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Guest access

The pied-à-terre is fully independent. Access is via a short alley departing from the Cathedral square, and opening at the other end onto a balcony with a panoramic view of Otranto bay.

Interaction with guests

The pied-à-terre is managed directly by the Landlords, Antonio and Livia, who live all year in an apartment on the first floor of the same building. They will be happy to help with further guests' requests, as well as to provide advice and suggestions.

Mrs Livia was very kind and helpful. Apart of picking us up and showing the area of the apartment, she was always helpful with useful information about the city. The apartment was small, but well equipped and charming. When you add that standing in front of it, you have a beautiful view to cathedral and a panorama of Otranto bay, all together makes it an amazing week.

Livia and her children was very helpful and kind. The location is perfect, the apartment is in the center of Otranto, but in a quite little street with a perfect panorama to the sea. We loved everything in Otranto, beautiful beaches, wonderful and clean historic old town, nice restaurants and fantastic programs and concerts in the center. There was only one discomfort in the apartment, the partition wall between the 2 ground floor apartment. We heard every word from our neighbours, and actually they yell with each other every morning after they woke up, so we needed earplug to sleep well.

Emmanuela and her husband; Livia E Antonio daughter met us in the center of Otranto and directed us to a parking space we could use for the 3 days we had booked. They gave us a permit for the car which was very generous. They also explained all the various parking and driving rules for Otranto which can be complex. The apartment is very well located to the beautiful old town, and 2min walk to the sea front and many restaurants. The apartment is basic but is good value and has everything mentioned on the listing. A clean place to come back to for the keen explorer.

Beautiful, cosy and clean space. Perfect for a couple or one person. Emanuela welcomed me very friendly and showed me everything. There is no Internet, but there is a café next to the harbor that has wifi. I loved Otranto and my little home! Would definitely come back, thank you!

Il mio ragazzo ed io ci siamo recati una settimana in Puglia, scegliendo come base notturna la casetta di Livia e Antonio. Grazie alla gentile Signora Livia, che rappresenta appieno la rinomata ospitalità del sud, abbiamo raggiunto l'appartamento. La posizione è impeccabile, centrale, in una delle vie che si diramano dalla piazza della cattedrale e che termina con una ringhierina affacciata sul paesino pugliese. Inoltre, è particolarmente comoda per chi trascorre tutta la giornata fuori casa e che quindi, la sera, preferisce rilassarsi passeggiando per Otranto alla ricerca di un ristorante per cena. Carina la casetta, composta solamente da una camera da letto e un bagno; il necessario per chi mira a girare la Puglia (anche se in realtà, per noi, sarebbe stato comodo anche un soggiorno). Due aspetti per cui non daremmo la quinta stellina sono: l'umidità dell'appartamento, che ha bisogno di essere areato in continuazione per evitare odori sgradevoli; la scarsa illuminazione, offerta dalla sola porta finestra di ingresso che non può esser spalancata in quanto si affaccia su un vicoletto pubblico. Per il resto merita di essere presa in considerazione, è una base comoda e particolare per andare all'avventura della Puglia!
