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.

Everything was absolutely brilliant - we really really loved our holiday at the Courtyard and are working out how we can return! Giancarlo was so kind, friendly, hard working and helpful. The area was perfect for the little men and ourselves. We cant fault it!
