Great house in a great location
The house is tucked away in a little courtyard, but once you enter the door it is airy and spacious. It has been renovated and maintained to a high spec and is very well equipped, both for entertainment and for cooking, so you can choose to cook for yourselves and eat in the peaceful and shaded garden (complete with lots of orange trees) or eat out in the towns several good restaurants. Parking in the nearby square was easy and it's safe to leave the car there.
Galatina itself is an attractive town (we were there during the 3 day tarantella festival which was good fun) and don't miss the amazing frescoes in the church of Santa Caterina . The town is also a great base from which to explore the rest of Salento - the beautiful city of Lecce and the coastal towns of Otranto, Gallipoli and Leuca - all worth a visit.
All in all, a very enjoyable holiday in a great property. Highly recommended.
Incredible home, Incredible hosts, insanely good location and wonderful neighbor
This home is one of the most well done and appointed we've ever stayed in, and we travel extensively worldwide. Once you get your parking pass and get acclimated to the neighborhood it's very easy to find yourself at home and comfortable. Internet works great in all 3 bedrooms, and hot water abounds. The kitchen is gourmet in nature and has every conceivable pot, pan, and accessory you can imagine. Very hard to come up with a dish that you couldn't prepare in this space. Great television and tons of sound. These owners are at the top of their game. I rent out homes in the US and this is exactly how I represent my properties. We couldn't have been more pleased either personally or professionally. There were six of us.
Thanks so much John, it was our pleasure to have you and Dorothy stay with us and we hope to see you again some day. Jon
Amazing stay in Galatina!
We absolutely loved Galatina--a beautiful, lively town--and Giardino Segreto was the perfect base for our adventures in town and around Salento. The house is old, with high ceilings and worn stairs, but it's as comfortable as any modern home, with excellent plumbing, a well-equipped kitchen, and very comfortable beds. Even at the end of October, we enjoyed fruit from the garden and spent a lovely afternoon on the rooftop patio. We were two couples travelling together and it was a perfect size for us, but it would also be comfortable for more. There are three good queen beds.
Hosts were very helpful and gracious. We look forward to returning one day for more Puglia food and wine!
Thanks Janice! Glad you enjoyed your stay at the house and see you again in Puglia some day soon! Jon
Sandy & Brian's October visit
This house is lovely; it certainly has the best-equipped kitchen we've ever found in a rental, complete with a little library of good cookbooks as well as that most elusive of vacation home wants - good knives and pots/pans! All three of the bedrooms are very spacious, so a group sharing would be happy regardless of which room they ended up with. Between the large garden and the rooftop terrace there's a lot of room to spread out, so everybody can have their own space if they want it. Unless you have a really tiny car, best to go get the parking permit from the police station and park in the adjacent piazza - the ingress to the courtyard is a bit hairy. Mark (Jon and Rebecca's friend who was staying next door) was very friendly and helpful, and Galatina is a good base for exploring the nearby beach towns and Lecce. Thanks Jon and Rebecca for your hospitality.
Thanks so much, Sandy and Brian! We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again one day.
Very good overall
4.2 out of 5 overall. Villa-5, Garden-4.5, Kitchen-5, bedrooms & bathrooms-4.5, view from roof top garden-1, stairs-2, Corte Sta. Maria-2, nearby restaurants-3, next door neighbour-5. Galatina is off the beaten track. Very nice but need a car to get around. Day trips to Gallipoli and Otranto outstanding. Galatina not a foodie destination but a nice, historic town. Glad we made the trip. Would not repeat. Grazie.
Beautiful home - an authentic Italian experience
Jon and Rebecca have created the most beautiful home, tucked away in a quiet courtyard in Galatina's Old Town. The house is spacious and light-filled with vaulted ceilings in most rooms. We especially loved the well-equipped kitchen which was a joy to cook in and the lovely walled garden. It really is a home-from-home with a huge flatscreen TV and large collection of DVDs if you fancy a film night in with pizza from one of the local restaurants. The house is right in the centre of the Galatina and within walking distance of restaurants, bars and gelaterie. This was our first time in Puglia and we found Galatina to be an excellent base for exploring the Salento region, including trips to Lecce, Gallipoli, Otranto and any number of gorgeous beaches. There is a fabulous drive from Martina de Leuca along the coast road to Otranto which rivals Amalfitana. Having spent years going to Tuscany we're now converts to Puglia and would love to return to Giardino Segreto with family or friends.
Thanks Pam! We're so glad you and Stuart had a great time, and that you've been won over to Puglia! Come again soon. Jon
Puglia (aka Puglia e Puglia) combina la stagione calda, bella architettura, e il più fresco di cibo disponibile in Italia. La maggior parte di vino, pasta e prodotti in Italia proviene da questa regione. È possibile trascorrere giornate esplorando le piccole e tortuose strade di Galatina, ma non perdetevi la vicina città isola fortezza di Gallipoli. Il lungo tratto di spiagge di sabbia a sud di Gallipoli chiamato il Lido sono perfetti per rilassarsi al sole. Visita della città di Lecce a vedere la Piazza Duomo, l'anfiteatro romano e la famosa Basilica barocca di Santa Croce. Il porto della città adriatica di Otranto ha un bellissimo centro storico con vista sulla costa albanese in lontananza e la Cattedrale di Otranto, con un mosaico di 700 metri quadrati dell'albero della vita che copre l'intero piano. Continua a sud verso la punta della penisola verso Santa Maria di Leuca per un'unità che rivaleggia con la Costiera Amalfitana. Ci sono molti ristoranti fantastici sul mare, o confezione un pic-nic e sosta lungo il percorso. La grotta ponte di Gagliano è particolarmente ottimo posto dove fermarsi per una nuotata.
