The Courtyard is located in Spongano, an traditional village with few tourists and lots of charm. The area is rural, flat and covered with ancient olives groves and vineyards, with small traditional villages and sandy beaches never far away. The villages have a sleepy, distinctly untouristy feel to them. Shops in Puglia traditionally close for the siesta at 1pm, opening around 5pm until around 9pm.

Beaches
10 minutes drive away is the popular rocky cove of Castro, 30 minutes drive away in Otranto there’s a family friendly sandy beach and playground. Italians adore children so you and your children will feel welcome wherever you go in Puglia!

Restaurants and Shops
The Courtyard is near Spongano's main village square and local shops including a bakery, chemist and grocers. There are also pizzerias and a few cafes for coffee, drinks and ice cream.

Activities
The area has a wealth of interesting sites to explore and activities such as golf, cycling, riding and sailing can all be arranged.

Further Afield
The stunning city of Lecce (known as the ‘Florence of the south’) and port of Gallipoli can be reached within an hour of The Courtyard.

E.B. - August 2018

Thanks for a wonderful holiday. The apartment was lovely and beautiful garden and pool - we were very comfortable. It was the first time we'd taken our 2 year old daughter abroad and we were a little apprehensive but it all worked out perfectly and she had a great time.
The apartment was great. A really solid feel to it (the thick solid walls meant it stayed cool even without the aircon) and a beautiful job on the renovation. We're already missing Puglia and nostalgically flicking through all our holiday photos! Thanks to Giancarlo who was great too. Best thing about our trip was giving our daughter some fantastic experiences - and a taste of Italy off the usual tourist trail. The pool and garden also a highlight.
We loved the area! Our favourite spot was Andrano Marina. A recommendation for runners - the quiet lanes which cross the olive groves outside of Spongano are perfect for a nice run with very little traffic and lovely views and not too hilly.
Hopefully visit again some day.


J.S. - May 2017

The holiday was great and we really enjoyed the location. Loved apartment, sparkling clean - my wife usually freaks out every time we get into a holiday rental due to dirt, but this did not happen this time!
Joyful pool and garden, brilliant welcome - Giancarlo was great.
Absolutely recommend.
