Marta & Michele
We would like to introduce ourselves through this page. We, Marta and Michele, in 2005 decided to drop up the carrier of employees and we have decided to open the doors of our house to guests in Puglia. As many claim us to be a harmonious and assorted couple, we are together for 40 years and we have two children, Claudio and Valentina, they are busy in a non-profit organization “The Path” and a grandson, Federico. We are fond of travelling, as we love visiting new places and being acquainted with new people. To give hospitability to people originally from different countries, to learn new cultures, to enter in the contact with various experiences and lives, is the unique approach. Pay us a visit, and you will see that we are early birds, especially Michele. Marta wakes up early to prepare you homemade breakfast; do not be surprised to be awaked at 6 a.m. by a perfume of a just-baked cake. You will find Michele at this time in the garden taking care of wonderful flowers and trees. Our goal is to receive you as dear friends and to make you feel like at home. We are always at your complete disposal ready to supply you with correct advice what places to visit and what dishes to taste, with certain discretion. We are always welcomed; the doors of our house are opened for you! See you soon! Marta and Michele.
Our house is submerged into the intense green and flourishing garden. The English lawn on board of our swimming pool is the ideal place to relax during a hot summer day. Olive trees, colourful flowers, limpid swimming pool water, orchards where to promenade and to sample fruit make “The Path” a small nature oasis. Noticeable external spaces with intense green where walking round, reading, listening to music and relaxing is a pleasure. Besides, there’s a spacious living room for our guests where we service breakfast, where you can play cards or work in a peaceful atmosphere (free Wi-Fi internet).
