About this listing

Elegant apartment in prestigious period building facing Otranto Cathedral. Two double bedrooms, each with en-suite bathroom, living room with kitchenette. Vaulted ceilings. Air conditioned. Very close to the sea/beaches.

The space

Elegant self-contained flat in prestigious period building facing the Otranto Cathedral. The flat has been recently refurbished to a high standard, restoring most of the original features in bare local stone (pietra leccese), including vaulted ceilings, arches, niches and original flooring.

Fully independent, it consists of a spatious living room with a sofa bed and a cooking area (including fridge/freezer and washing machine) and two double bedrooms, each with modern en-suite bathroom with shower. It is at ground level, hence it does not have a private balcony. Air conditioned (heating/cooling). The accommodation is ideal for a family of 4 - 5, or two couples.

The Belvedere may ordinarily be booked for a minimum of seven nights. Prices are all inclusive. Bed and bath linen is provided.

Other apartments are available from the same landlords in the same building, or nearby area.

Guest access

The Belvedere is fully independent, with two separate entrances respectively to the living room and the main bedroom. Access is via a short cobbled alley departing from the Cathedral square, and opening at the other end onto a balcony with a panoramic view of Otranto bay.

Interaction with guests

The Belvedere is managed directly by the Landlords, Antonio e Livia, who live all year in an apartment on the first floor of the same building. They will be happy to help with further hosts' requests, as well as to provide advice and suggestions.

It's like going back in history! Living inside the walls of the Otranto Castle was a wonderful experience! The apartment had plenty of space and a big terrace with a perfect view over the sea.

We spent 14 lovely days in Livia's and Antonio's apartment. Livia welcomed us very warmely and friendly. The apartment is perfectly located opposite the cathedral right in the heart of the town - just a few metres from the wonderful city beaches and the promenade. The flat consists of two double bedrooms, each with its own fully equiped ensuite bathroom and a kitchen/living room combo. Everything was clean and tidy. The apartment is located in a nice alley which leads to a viewpoint where you can overlook the bay of Otranto. Though the apartment didn't has its own terrace it was no problem to put chairs and a table (which you can find inside) in the alley to enjoy a coffee in the morning. In the evening the alley gets very crowded so it could be a bit loud, which didn 't bother us at all. We would highly recommend this place and like to thank Livia for everything!

We really enjoyed our stay in the apartment. It was well equipped for all our needs and those of our toddler. The apartment is at the heart of the old town so it's very close to lots of wonderful restaurants. It's also only 5 minutes away from the beach. Livia and Emanuela were there to meet us and on hand throughout the week. We'd like to come back and would definitely stay here again if and when we do.

THE PERFECT OTRANTO APARTMENT We stayed here for a week and we loved it. It's just opposite the cathedral (the best location in town) which is great for sitting out in the mornings and people watching. The rooms are comfortable and there is everything you could need. We hired bikes too and there was plenty of space for them. In fact there is a lot of space, easily for four people and bit but great for two. The host doesn't speak English but her daughter Emmanuella does very well and she met us on arrival. She was very helpful and friendly throughout the week. Overall, we couldn't have asked for more!

The natural beauty and charm of Otranto was only exceeded by our gracious hosts Livia & Antonio. Wonderful people. Livia met us just outside the castle walls and chaufeurred us through the narrow streets of this medieval gem, dropping us off at the door step of our lovely apartment , just a few feet from the medieval cathedral. Fantastic! Everything was perfect- clean, beautifully appointed, a fabulous location and the warmest of hosts. Our highest recommendation.
