My boyfriend and I had a real pleasure to stay for a 5 nights with our little dog in Aia Grande B&B. The location is perfect for everybody who wants to visit near cities Otranto and Castro. You can easily reach many, local beaches. Or double room was clean, bright, equipped with a small fridge and air conditioning. The room was cleaned daily. We really enjoyed the variety of breakfast: sweet pastries, fruits, srramble eggs, focaccia and other local products. The coffee was served by the owner who was incredible friendly and helpful during all our stay. I really recommend this place.

Really fantastic B&B ideally suited to anyone who wishes to visit this beautiful part of Puglia. Close to the enchanting city of Otranto, yet enjoying the the quiet of the countryside on the outskirts of an idyllic little town. Pierangelo is a model host, and the breakfasts are first rate. Just what's needed to set you up for the day.

The owner is a very friendly person who keeps the rooms spotless. He serves a beautiful breakfast - more than the usual sweets and coffee. Our room had a nice big balcony overlooking the pool. Pool is gorgeous at night - it is lit with soft color from within. Our room was too small for our comfort (we were traveling with large suitcases). For those traveling with a carry on, it is fine. Shower water fluctuated between warm and cold. You could hear through the walls. Bottom line, worth the stay again!

Actually, the L'Aia Grande is on the road between Casamassalla and Uggiano La Chiesa. Very clean room; lovely terrace overlooking countryside. A super breakfast included an egg as well as fresh pineapple and melon (unusually generous for Italy) as well as the customary creme filled croissant; . This inn is tiny and relately isolated, so you really need a car (or a bike) to enjoy the area. That said, it is VERY close to the sea, and only a few minutes from Otranto which, though touristy, is well worth a visit. Tip: get Pierangelo, the very friendly owner of L'Aia Grande, to take you to l'Incontro, the restaurant in La Chiesa at which he works; it is very good!
