I have just returned from staying at Jim and Paul's appartment in Galatina. First of all, the town. As soon as I arrived in the Piazza de San Pietro and got my first glimpse of Galatina, I knew it was going to be a great place to stay. Beautiful baroque churches, palazzos and all the shops you could need and more. A genuine, well conserved, deep South Italian experience.
As for the appartment, it was everything you see in the pictures and more. Very well finished with great attention to detail. Comfortable bed, very effective air-con, central but quiet, two great terraces to choose from and everything else you want to take on holiday but don't have room for; beach umbrella, coolbag etc. What I really liked was that no expense or thought had been spared. You didn't need to go out and buy loads of loo roll, dishwasher tabs, olive oil etc, it was all there. If you go in summer, you will live in the kitchen and first roof terrace till late in the evening. A suberb place to stay which I will recommend and return too!
Galatina is well placed for great excursions to either coast. All trips can be done in about an hour. Try Gallipoli, Sta Maria de Leuca, Porto Badisco, Porto Selvaggio and Torre Ulizzo.
I am really fussy when choosing holidays off the internet, trust me this place and its surroundings are top-notch. I actually preferred this region, The Salento, to the area that we went on to next, around Ostuni and Martina Franca. I will be back soon. Thank you Paul and Jim for being so professional in every respect.
