Charming apartment in an old villa -GARGANO


Holiday in Puglia is always a suggestive experience. Our proposal is to make it warm and comfortable. Imagine a sober, elegant building of the XIX century, situated on the hills of Gargano. Imagine around it olive-groves, the characteristic fragrance, that only this very land can have. This is Villa Basso, for the traveller who appreciates fine taste, a real historical character, and a home away from home.

The villa has been the summer residence of a rich family . It is placed in an ideal position to enjoy a wonderful view of the sea . It has been also the set of the movie “ High bright sun” with Dirk Bogarde.
The villa been restored with the care and the passion that only who loves this indeed this place can feel; it is equipped with every confort and furnished with taste: a spacious and brightl kitchen with a big stone fireplace and a living room with an open mezzanine floor( screened from view but no door separating) with the double king bed bed and other furniture( a cot is available with no charge).
Two comfortable single sofa-bed complete the sleeping possibilities; wide bath with shower and sunlight.
The in entrance is direct from the very large terrace overlooking the sea
In the Villa another delicious self-catered suite for 2 is available , for a total number of 6 in party , see the advert on the same website-
ref. 8470 : Delightful ,panoramic suite -GARGANO,PUGLIA

The owner speaks english and will help and suggest you for every need.
The house is in an enchanting and calm situation in the heart of Gargano National Park, easily reachable from the main road, and not so far from other touristic destinations such as Vieste , Peschci, San Giovanni Rotondo( a religious site) Monte S. Angelo, Amalfi Coast ( two hours) .The nearest beaches are only 1 km from here.

The Gargano promontory is a different proposition to the rest of Puglia; a rugged spur jutting out from the coast covered in forests. Now a 15,000 hectare nature reserve, the Parco Nazionale di Gargano ( is home to thousands of different species of flora and fauna, including deer and wildcats.
Also in the park you can visit the Foresta Umbra or "Forest of Shadows", a beautiful blanket of Aleppo pine, oak and beech.

The Gargano is also home to some of Puglia's best beaches. Its capital, Vieste, is a pretty medieval town that gets incredibly busy in the summer but also boasts one of the region's most spectacular beaches, which looks out onto the towering Scoglio di Pizzomunno, an enormous monolith of rock in front of the beach.
There are places which, as a result of their history, position or the exceptional events which occured there, are shrouded in a veil of almost tangible sacrality pervading every nook and cranny. The Gargano is a “holy” land, a much-visited venue for some of the most important religious gatherings on a world-wide scale. The apparition of the Archange Michael on Mount Gargano is without doubt the core of religious experience in this land. Thousands of pilgrims travel tu visit the cold, dark grotto which Michael chose as is earthly dwelling. But is not only the cult of St. Michael which exalts the religious spirit of this area – there are the many churches, set against breath-taking backdrops, such as the Convent of St. Matthew in San Marco il Lamis. In more recent times, the presence of Padre Pio, who lived in San Giovanni Rotondo, has provided a strong attraction for millions of people. But it is the Gargano as a whole which expresses its divine beauty in every time and space.
