A lovely stay in a very quiet location. The apartment on the ground floor of the house was very comfortable with a well equipped kitchen area. Tina and Vito are very helpful and hospitable. There are available in the main house if needed but not intrusive. It was very nice to have a source of local knowledge to give advice to us for sightseeing and shopping. The garden is large and beautifully maintained and the large but unheated pool was for our own use. Our stay coincided with the village festival in Selva so it was nice to see the locals enjoying a night out. Set high on the hill above the coastal plain there are terrific views from many of the local roads and is centrally located for visits to a large number of the famous tourist destinations.
We stayed in August 2017 with our two children (4 & 6). The apartment is ideal for a family and is well equipped, as described. Vito and his lovely family were very welcoming, and took the time to show us local restaurants and sights of Selva di Fasano. They struck exactly the right balance of being there if we needed help but giving privacy and space to enjoy the property. The pool was a particular hit with our children, and was clean and well maintained.
The position is great for visiting the surrounding countryside and towns, and we particularly enjoyed Alborobello, Ostuni, and the caves at Castellana, though Cisterano, Polignano, and Martina Franco are also within a short drive. Thoroughly recommended!!
Its is a place to stay high up on the hill above Fasano. Its is not a fantastic apartment but the basement of the owners house who you will meet/hear in the garden most days. The pool is unfortunately across the drive, and there is one door in and out of the basement which is dark inside. The owners promptly replaced a damp stained mattress when it was pointed out. . Looking back at the website photos it is now easy to see the basement is centered at the back of the main house drive next to the garage and the outside furnishings shown were not available presumably because the owner has to get his car out. Puglia is a beautiful area but there are better places to stay for the money.
We travelled in September with our two young children (3yrs and 7 months) and picked this apartment because of the pool which we would have to ourselves and the security that brings with young children. The apartment is an annexe of a large house in its own wonderfully landscaped gardens and we couldn't have been more impressed. The owners are very pleasant and always check you are ok but you never get the impression that anyone is nearby. The apartment is well equiped with full kitchen, dishwasher, satalite TV, washing machine etc and outdoor dining table as well as a gas bbq and the pool and sunloungers. It's all kept very clean and the owner Vito bought us a microwave and high chair and organised a cot when we requested these items before we arrived. The property is located in the hills outside of Fasano and is perfect for short trips to Locorotondo, Ostuni, Alberobello and Lecce. There are several good restaurants within a 10 minute drive or the places mentioned above all have great restaurants. We couldn't have been more impressed with the accommodation or the owners, we were even shown how to swicth on the pool lights and pump if we wanted to go for a late night swim!

The apartment was modern and very clean. It is ideal for a 4 person family. Located within the large house of the owner. But you have privacy in the apartment and by the very nice swimming pool.
