Enjoy the daily “passeggiata” (evening stroll) in the cobblestone-paved old town streets full of shops and restaurants (gelato in hand), explore the castle and surroundings, cook with fine, fresh produce from the street markets, and take in free concerts and street performances. The town centre is pedestrian-only, which makes for wonderful walking and quiet, peaceful sleeping. This is also the perfect gateway for famous tourist destinations nearby like Ostuni, Alberobello, Martina Franca, Cisternino, Locorotondo (Valle d’Itria). All are a few miles away. The train station is just a few blocks from the house.
We stayed here around 3 weeks during which we explored Southern Italy in a rental car. The apartment is as advertised and seen in pictures - it is very charming and in a picturesque location. The only complaints we had related to lack of an English TV lineup and sketchy wi-fi. The trash collection set-up is complicated and shopping/eating are difficult due to lack of English speakers and local custom of shops closing in the afternoon and restaurants not opening until 8 pm. Parking is also complicated and requires parking on the street and walking a several blocks, which is fine except when it rains. The parking is complicated and scarce. We got a ticket and paid a 27 Euro fine. We ended up leaving several nights early and visiting Naples, Sorrento, and Rome, which as bigger more touristy cities, have more options, choices, and English speakers.

Un gioiellino d'appartamento con tutto il necessario per una vacanza senza problemi
L'appartamento è davvero molto molto bello e situato nel centro storico di Conversano. E' dotato di tutti i servizi ed i comfort che si possono desiderare. Si raggiunge a piedi in 2 minuti il castello e le parti più suggestive della cittadina. Noi eravamo in cinque e non abbiamo avuto nessun problema di spazio. La cittadina è stata ideale come base per le escursioni in altre cittadine in cui siamo stati (Polignano a mare, Ostuni, Alberobello, Locorotondo, Monopoli, Cisternino). I proprietari sono stati molto cortesi telefonicamente nei primi contatti e poi disponibili a darci suggerimenti sui posti da visitare e frequentare... Tutto molto bello !!!

Abbiamo soggiornato in quest'appartamento per una settimana durante la nostra vacanza in Puglia. Appartamento molto accogliente, ben rifinito e con tutti i comfort. Si trova in pieno centro storico e l'aria che si respira è davvero caratteristica. Consigliatissimo sia per i proprietari che sono davvero disponibili e gentili sia per l'ottima localizzazione: Conversano è ricca di eventi quasi ogni sera durante il periodo estivo ed è ideale come punto d'appoggio per la visita di tutta la Valle d'Itria. Vacanza indimenticabile!

Excellent house and wonderful owners
We stayed five months in this house over the fall and winter of 20/14 - 15. We've rented many short-term apartments in multiple countries, and this is one of the best. The house itself is very clean and modern -- everything works!, The house is outfitted better than any place we've stayed. By outfitted, I mean all the things for daily life, from linens to kitchenware to laundry facilities. These things may be less important to someone just staying for a few days, but they become extremely important the longer one stays.
Adding greatly to the quality of our stay, the family that owns this house are fine people, genuinely good, and eager to make your stay pleasant. The business relationship easily expanded into friendship.

Great place to stay and owners superb
Conversano is a beautiful place and it was made all the better where we stayed. It was a great location and a beautiful apartment in traditional part of the old town in Conversano. Roberto and his family were so kind and could not have done more for me and my family. I travelled with my husband and young baby. Roberto met us on our first day in the local petrol station and showed us where to park in the town along with going through the local amenities etc.
I cannot recommend this accomodation more as it had everything to offer a family or a young couple travelling around Italy. It had every appliance you would require along with being able to sleep up to 6 people. The price was extremely reasonable for what you get along with being in a great location for the local restaurents and super market. If you have a family there is great adventure parks, caves and aqua parks close by too.
To be honest I never rate accomodation but in this case I could not let it go without rating for great place to stay and extremely nice owners that could not do enough for us (even the local neighbour supplying us with fresh fruit and nuts).
Superb 5 star rating on this - will definitely return!!!!! The only bad thing was the weather unfortunately but this is not something that can be controlled ;-)

Very nice house
The house is very very nice. My family and I (5 people) stayed there seven days and everything has gone very well. The entire building is made with 'tufo', a local white stone, as every traditional house in Puglia. Recently the house has been well refurbished : its style is original, the rooms are wide and the forniture is modern and confortable. furthermore in all the rooms you can find all you need ! the house is located in the nice and well-manteined Conversano city centre and it is located closed to the old castle and its square (Largo della Corte). Conversano has maintained its medieval origin that you can see visiting the basilica church, San Benedetto church and several other buildings.

Great place for exploring Puglia
We spent three weeks in Jatta as our base for touring Puglia and found the apartment clean & well equipped. It's quite pleasant, wider than the normal home, with plenty of light & comfortable beds & lots of nice linens. Quality furnishings & a comfortable sofa for watching TV. Marina's brother Giuseppe showed us a place nearby for free parking. We had little trouble getting a spot there whenever we returned from a day trip.
The listing says 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 5, however the description mentions two bathrooms. Off the kitchen there's a toilet in a small room with the washer & a laundry sink. This is very handy, but I wouldn't call it a bathroom, so the first description is actually correct. In addition to the two bedrooms (one each on 2nd & 3rd floor), there's a single bed in a loft area of the 3rd floor. Ample space for storing suitcases and belongings.
We had some problems with the TV & internet connection, but Giuseppe came with a friend and they fixed the TV & installed a new wifi Cube. The internet service is sporadic but it's not the fault of the owners. There's not great cell or internet coverage in Puglia and the Cube was not getting a strong signal from the satellite during part of each day. Once we got acclimated to the timing we managed fine.
Just steps away from the castle & wide piazza the apartment affords the chance to be part of the town's social life. We enjoyed festivals, music and food events as well as easy local shopping. There are bakeries, a rotisserie chicken market, meat markets and a couple vegetable markets within a 5-10 minute walk.
As you pass under the arch from the residential street onto the main piazza area there's a wonderful little restaurant called A219. We got to know the owner Nicola, so if you go, tell them John & Nancy recommended it. He also has a store on Piazza Aldo Moro called Masi with fresh-made cheeses, jams and other organic products. Really good. Our other favorite eatery is Miei Amici in the piazza off Via Rosselli next to Via Conte Cosimo. It features pork products from Nocie including mortadella made from cingale (wild boar) which they serve grilled in chunks. A wonderful treat. There's a fabulous pastry & chocolate shop across the street on Via Rosselli. The best (and most exotic) gelato is at Pasha on Piazza Castello. Take the Conversano Lippizaner carriage ride outside town.
We loved our little cassetta & having made many friends in town, we plan on staying there again.

Amedeo -:- Charlotte, NC USA
My wife and I spent five days in this beautiful apartment in the amazing small town of Conversano. Everything about it is just as it is described on the web site and just as the pictures show. From here we did day trips to Matera, Salento regions, Castel del Monte and of course alberobello. Everything was less than two hours drive. However, we could have just hang around Conversano as it is truly a wonderful town full of life. The apartment is in the old part of town and a few step away from the castle that you see in the picture. We were pleasantly surprised by the night life. The area around the castle turns into a place to meet and greed even late at night. There are plenty of restaurants, bars and clubs to satisfy just about everyone. Highly recommend, will not be disappointed

Light and modern house in beautiful Puglia
This place was very comfortable to stay in. Marina and her family were very kind and helpful to make our stay as good as possible. Because it is in the middle of a city there is some noise from surrounding inhabitants. Puglia and this part of it is great!
