We arrived at B&B Baia Scirocco in the late morning after running away from a dreadful accommodation, Antonella offered a coffee and made us welcome while the room floor dried up (we booked very last minute).
The room was well appointed and clean, with a handy small fridge to keep our beverages cool and plenty of space for our things, even though not overly spacious ... why would you want more inside room with that gorgeous terrace just outside your door, though...
Breakfast featured warm croissants, good bread and home made jams, plenty of home made goods (a different cake every morning and typical Apulian bisquits), orange juice and fruit and was served on the sunny terrace in front of the sea.
The terrace is the perfect place to unwind and relax and offers an outstanding view to the sea and endless quietness, but do consider that, due to the exposure, does not have any sun during the last hours of the afternoon (this is definitely a plus during the hottest months since the place gets nice and cool, ready for a good night sleep).
Antonella lives onsite (this is a real B&B) and is always nearby to offer advice on places to eat (do try the Trabucco and Osteria Pane e Vino, both amazing), and visit (drive to Vieste and down the coast and spend a day wondering around the Foresta Umbra) and to help out with any problem.
After a disappointing start of our holiday, Antonella helped us getting the best from the area.
A free wi-fi connection is available & Antonella just installed a brand new air conditioning system (hardly needed though due to the breeze and the exposure), we used for heating (the weather was still quite chilly) and it worked well.
The only small downturn is that it's a bit awkward to find (call and Antonella will guide you there) and to drive to (a few hundreds metres of steep and curvy road, but pretty deserted). It's well worth the effort though!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Bed and Breakfast is located in the little town that is the most characteristic of Puglia: Peschici, on the East side of it in a very quiet zone: on a dead-end street at the base of a rocky cliff, with no public roads nearby. The structure only faces the sea on a side. Our little B & B is a family run structure and has only 3 rooms. The terrace can be used by the guests and it provides an enchanting view. On the horizon you can see the Pelagosa Island, and when the sky is clear and visibility is good you can also see the Croatian Coast. Two rooms access to the big terrace, while the third has a small private terrace. They all have the sea view, are daily cleaned and have their parking place. The town centre is also attainable by feet through a staircase. ROOMS: We have 3 double rooms, of which 2 can host a family of four through a bunk bed, and one which can host a third bed. They are all colorfully and modernly furnished and have a private bathroom. BREAKFAST: From 8 am to 10 am, the breakfast is served on the terrace. It is plentiful and almost totally composed with products we make. Next to coffee, tea or cappuccino, we offer every day home-made bread, cakes and marmalades. SERVICES: Air condition, private bathroom, mini fridge, parking place, big sea-view terrace, free wi-fi. LOCATION: The B & B is located on the East side of the town and so faces Vieste del Gargano. The cliffs and the sea are just a few meters away, but 1500 m separate us from the closest beach, the Bay of Peschici. By feet, through a staircase, you can reach the centre in about 5 minutes. BEACHES: The Bay of Peschici is 2000 m long, made of fine sand and defined by cliffs. One section is free; the others charge a fee but are equipped with the needs sunbathers ask for. Water sports such as windsurf, canoa, water ski and sail are available. The other spectacular beaches are on the coast road to Vieste, from 2 km away from our Bed and Breakfast. LOCAL TOURS: Paid tours on motorboats leave from Peschici arbour: The Tremiti Islands tour and the sea caves and coast tour. We also recommend to visit the Umbra Forest and the religious cities of Monte Sant'Angelo and San Giovanni Rotondo.
