A beautiful house - the photos don't do it justice. A great base for exploring Salento and Cursi is a lovely little town to spend a few days. We were met by Else and Giovanni - who were very welcoming; we didn't have any problems at all during our stay but I have no doubt they would have resolved any if we did. The house is beautifully decorated and the roof terrace a lovely spot to take breakfast or a drink as the sun sets.
What a fantastic ittle hoise , close to Otranto . Philip annd Paolo did a great job restoring the house in the historic center of Cursi .you can tell Philip is an architect : lots of lovely details all over the house and grat use of the space. the internal staircase is amazing as the roof terrace such a bonis. Love the Molton Brown products in the bathroom. Paolo has been very good in keeping in touchand providing us with lots of tips in the area. the house was spotless and I cant wait to go back in Sept !
Beautiful apartment, beautifully designed. All mod cons. Cursi is a terrific sport to explore all the delights of the Solento region being only 20 minutes from almost everything.
