Having been recommended Puglia by a friend who is steeped in Italy and its beauties we spent a long time researching where to go. We could not have been more pleased with our choice of Il Gelso. Anita and Pino were perfect hosts, booking was very straightforward and information and instructions were clear and precise.The Trullo is perfect in every aspect and cannot be faulted. The bedrooms were comfortable, the living areas very pleasant, the kitchen very well equipped and well laid out and, of course, the outside area and pool were fantastic.
Sadly, were only there for a week but we spent a lot of time by the pool and
we also visited Matera, Ostuni, Monopoli, all of which were beautiful towns with whitewashed buildings and narrow streets.
The last day of our stay was my wife's 70th birthday and Pino cooked and served us a wonderful meal and even made a very tasty birthday cake.
We cannot thank Anita and Pino enough for all their kindness and help and for the care and love they have lavished on Il Gelso to make it such a special place to stay.More
