From the first moments of conversation with the owners, I was certain that falling in love with the photos would not be an illusion. When we arrived everything appeared as promised. The house was immaculate and we immediately felt at home. The views of the sea are seductive.You will want to sit, or dine, on one of the several terraces everyday.

Each instruction given by the owners as to use of the dishwasher, stove, washing machine and dryer was precise and helpful ( these made the stay extremely easy). Their suggestions of things to do, or places to go were also quite helpful.

The village of Peschici is delightful. The inhabitants are warm and very kind. Whenever we told anyone (including in restaurants) that we were staying in the home of Anita and Jan we were immediately treated with special care. They are obviously well liked and respected.

Each day we would walk to the fruit and vegetable market for their fresh produce and bread ( do not miss the olive oil). There, as in the cafes the proprietors soon felt like friends. The warmth, real.

The charm of this village cannot be exaggerated. It was very helpful that we spoke Italian as not everyone speaks English. Because we could we had many dear conversations with neighbors and several of the older women of the village, who could not have been more kind e.g offering vegetables from their gardens.

There are many beautiful places to drive. In the middle of the small roads, you might find a cow with a bell around her neck, sheep, goats, cats, dogs etc. One can stroll along the beach, or sit with gelato and observe the charm of the Centro.

Above all, it is impossible to exaggerate the pleasure of the views from La Rondinaia. The only negative was having to leave. Next time, we hope to stay for several months.

We arrived the 2nd week in may and stayed for two weeks, four weeks would have been much much better.The apartment is superbly situated high on the cliff edge, the balconies and sun terrace enable you to enjoy both the sun rise and sun set, awaking each morning at 6.30 I laid the breakfast out ready for the start of the day with fresh fruit and pastries, I wait up on the sun terrace for the aroma of the fresh coffeee to arrive and the distinctive sound that says the cafetera has done its part and all is needed now is for me to just pour and savour happy in the knowledge that I chose wisely and these two weeks are going to be just so perfect.My wife wakes up and we share the moment together looking out towards the fisherman in the small boat below bringing in his net, just himself today only expecting maybe no more than a dozen fish, no problem, dont want to over do it. Peschici seems to encompass that philosophy no problem just take it easy and enjoy, no one is in a hurry to go anywhere ,any way whats the hurry. This place is great..the town is great...italy is great... life is good... dont miss out. Ciao

“A delightful flat, with fantastic views, in the pretty, historic centre”
Reviewed 3 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

This is a lovely flat, attractively furnished and decorated, in a perfect position overlooking the sea. The whitewashed walls and high ceilings give a light and airy, seaside feel to the living areas. I was there during a very unusual cloudy and chilly week in March and needed to use the air-conditioning unit to blast out heat as the underfloor heating wasn't very powerful. (There are several fans available to supplement the air-conditioning when faced with the much more common problem of extreme heat.) This flat is ideal for a couple or small family: note that the bedrooms are interconnecting and there is only one bathroom.

The flat is tucked away down a quiet side alley in the pretty, historic centre of Peschici, popular with Italians in high season but, it seems, yet to be 'discovered' by foreign tourists. I was on holiday by myself so I much enjoyed chatting to shop-keepers, bar and restaurant owners who, out of season, had the time to do so. They were all very courteous, generously offering a few cents off a cup of coffee or free home-made liquers when I became a regular customer, and giving me a friendly wave in town as they went by in their cars. The Italian came in useful again when phoning Michela and Maria (her sister and driver - they live three miles outside Peschici) who were friendly and keen to answer any query.

For anyone who gets bored with the beach (a ten-minute descent down a winding, 170-step path - no problem for somebody of average fitness and a great way to work off gently all that delicious pasta!) and has visited the Tremiti Islands, I can recommend a visit to Antonella Vescia. Antonella is an English-speaking tour guide for the Gargano National Park. She is a fount of knowledge for things to do in the area and far better, in my experience, than the tourist office (again, because it was low season, she had plenty of time for a chat and was keen to practise her English). Her office, Agrifogliotour, is to the right when facing the church in Piazza Sant'Antonio, across the road and 100 metres up the hill from the tourist office.

All in all, a wonderful flat and a lovely place to visit. I've already booked a return visit - when the weather is likely to be warmer and sunnier!

We booked one week, which turned into two, which turned into three! The apartment is perfectly situated on a high cliff overlooking the sea. We were there in the "off season" in November and still loved the area. The kitchen for us was the core of the apartment. We did not have our own vehicle and shopped at all the local shops and mainly did our own cooking. Kitchen is stocked will all amenities including a dishwasher. The sitting room is small and cozy. There are two bedrooms and you need to walk through the middle of one with single beds to get to the master room. We were a couple on our own so no problem for us. The beds were supercozy and Anita made sure the feather duvets were brought out for the cool weather. We had some initial issues getting the floor heating working but a number of emails back and forth quickly resolved and was adequate to heat the house in November. The bathroom has one of the best views of the ocean! Washer and dryer are a bit old and noisy but worked (we tried as much as possible to use the roof deck to dry our clothes. Wifi worked great which was good for us as we were using it for business. A few disappointments which didn't mar our experiences - there was hardly any toilet paper upon arrival so it was urgent for us to get to the shops immediately the next morning (would be nice if a couple rolls were provided), none of the two fireplaces were operational which was one of the things we were looking forward to staying here, we left a day early and although Anita let us know a few times she would arrange to get our one nights' refunded back to us it never did happen.
Anita was very responsive to all emails very quickly. We ran out of propane and arrangements were immediately made for full bottles to be dropped off. Peschici is an amazing village and we were so lucky to have made many friends. We loved the walk down to the beach which we did everyday. The walk up is a lot of stairs but nothing to be put off by. My partner even went into the ocean...we did have a lot of sun thankfully.
