We had this apartment for one week and the one next door, Nearco, for 10 days, with our children and grandchildren. We had come to visit family in Castellana Grotte and the location of the apartments was ideal, just a few minutes outside the town....More

About the neighbourhood
These spectacular limestone caves, 40km southeast of Bari, are Italy's longest natural subterranean network. The interlinked galleries, first discovered in 1938, contain an incredible range of underground landscapes, with extraordinary stalactite and stalagmite formations – look out for the jellyfish, the bacon and the stocking. The highlight is the Grotta Bianca (White Grotto), an eerie alabaster cavern hung with stiletto-thin stalactites. 'Speleonights' take small torch-wieding groups into the caves after dark, among the bats, beetles, and crustacea that live there.
