The apartment is well located in a quiet area of Santa Maria al Bagno - 5 minutes drive from the beach and attractive town centre. The apartment is very well equipped, clean and has a lovely airy feel. A large balcony overlooks the pool (perfect for al fresco dining!) and there is an additional roof terrace which can be accessed via a spiral staircase. The third bedroom and second bathroom are also accessed via the spiral staircase - perfect for our two teenage children!
This is our second visit to Melograno apartment and it’s just as good as we remember. The local agent, Luigi, was very helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We hope to return in the future!
This place just did not work for us. We booked this so we could use the pool. When we arrived, there had been a storm but the pool was unclean with bags/leaves and a pipe in the pool. The more hazardous part were the tiles broken and unbroken around the pool. The tiles were used by owners to hold down their umbrellas, but were a trip hazard. The tile in the shower was broken with sharp edges and the grate where pump was was raised with sharp edges also. There was scum in the pool and the filter was not on when we arrived (was on a timer). The landlord kindly offered to clean the next day, but this would already have been two days gone out of 5, and I was deeply unhappy with the condition of the pool area. I have two young children that run around in circles, we value their safety greatly and we did not want to take the risk. The is the first ever apartment we have booked that we could not stay in. It also had a third floor with a very steep spiral staircase, I would not have been happy with my kids climbing this. The area itself is very remote, car required, and the roads are not surfaced properly. There is an unfinished house in the course of construction straight ahead of you. The view of the sea is nice and the apartment, 2 bedrooms and kitchen are well equipped. This apartment may tick the boxes for some people, but it did not work for us. The owner was understanding, and was good to us, but this was a terrible situation for us and for him. We left with nowhere to stay and two hungry tired kids. The owner was also left without his tenants. I didn't write reviews before, but now I know how important it is to leave honest reviews that will help you select the correct property for you. It is really important to be fully aware of all positives and potential problems it might cause a young family.
The apartment is well located in a quiet area of Santa Maria Al Bagno. It is well equipped and has a lovely balcony and large roof terrace which overlook the pool and the sea. The upstairs bedroom is accessed by a spiral staircase and was perfect for our teenage boys. Luigi (the agent) was very helpful and was able to recommend local shops and restaurants. We had a fantastic holiday in Puglia and hope to return next year.
Very well equipped apartment in a convenient location. Easy access to Santa Maria al Bagno with its beach and bars and good location for exploring the southern area of Puglia; we visited many great places including Lecce, Gallipoli, Otranto, Alberobello etc.
Nice views with French doors onto the balcony, plenty of space and comfortable beds. Good seating inside and out, the DVD player was a bonus. An Information book would be good.
++ : Apartment very well equipped. Beautiful and big terrace with see view. Nice for the teenagers to have their own room + bathroom + terrace.
- : car needed for everything (beach, supermarkets, town,....)
