I was really satisfied with all I got: a hospitable, warm welcome, a comfortable, neat and tidy ,fully equipped apartment. Families (even with babies) are provided with everything they can imagine in the kitchen and bedroom. Nicola, the host offers you iteneraries, gives you brochures, tourist guides and maps if you are interested. If you don't mind waiting for public transport this is the perfect place for you. I highly recommend it for families with a car! Emese
We spent the Easter holiday in Bari in this wonderful apartment. It exceeded our expectations. Nicola is an amazing host who provided us with maps, train and bus schedules. His attention to detail was exceptional. The apartment is modern bright with a comfortable bed, large tv , washer, micro, dish washer, in short everything you need and great wifi. Bus stop to Bari is just a 2 minute walk. Great location to visit many great towns surrounding Bari. Will definately return to la bomboniera. Thank you Nicola !
La Bomboniera is a very modern, bright and clean apartment on the third floor of a block in a residential suburb of Bari. All communications with Nicola, the owner, were responded to very quickly. For a first-time visitor to Bari the apartment would be very difficult to find without a SatNav (which we did not have), but Nicola was very helpful in providing detailed maps and meeting us at a well-signposted nearby hospital, before leading us to the apartment and the nearby parking (about 5 minutes’ walk away).
There are shops and restaurants nearby, but the apartment is also well-equipped for self-catering, with a good hob and oven, dishwasher and washing machine, and plenty of crockery and cutlery (though some sharp knives for preparing fruit and vegetables would have been helpful). Although the weather was not warm enough for us to use it, there is a very large balcony in addition to a spacious sitting/dining room and a large bedroom. The wi-fi worked well.
After our arrival Nicola spent time with us making suggestions for places to visit in the surrounding areas. There were also a few leaflets, maps and books of information in the apartment.
Nicola stayed in email contact throughout our 5 days in Bari to ensure we had everything we needed, and we found his apartment a very convenient base for exploring the surrounding area.
We enjoyed our stay, and that was in large part due to Nicola being a very friendly and kind man who was keen to ensure our stay met our expectations.

This apartment in Bari was a last minute booking. If we had known how nice the place was and how much there was to do in the area, we would have planned to stay longer. The apartment was set up well enough to move in for a week or more. Nice size with a huge balcony to enjoy sunrise and sunset. Everything was better than advertised. You can hear the neighbors a little but they are all very quiet after 10pm so no problem sleeping at all. It was so nice to have a large bathroom with a tub. Luxury in Europe. The area is away from the center of Bari but easily reachable by car or bus. We even walked which was very nice and only took 1 hour. This is a great base for exploring Puglia and Nicola was a fantastic host! He suggested places to visit that we had not even considered. This place is a very good value. Would definitely return!
