Do you have a question about the breakfast? Would you like to rent a boat? Want to do a wine tour? Information about where to park? These and other questions are answered down below. Click on the question to see the answer.
Of course we can!! We have lots of contacts in the area, so let us know what you are into. There will also be a document in the studio full of tips about where to eat, where to go and what to do.
No, both studios are independent with their own entrance.
Since the studios are independent, we decided not to bother you with a ‘breakfast service’, but to give you coupons for a delicious breakfast at a local bar around the corner. That way, you can go whenever you want and take whatever you feel like having. Try a delicious pasticciotto with a cappuccino or if it is very warm that day; have a caffè in ghiaccio con latte di mandorla. You can sit outside looking over the piazza have your breakfast or inside at the bar like the locals.
Yes, both of our studios have windows that can open. They might be smaller and on a higher level than you might be used to. That’s because the summers get pretty hot here and big windows would make the studios too warm. Like almost all houses on the ground floor in Puglia (have a look around when you are here!), the studios therefore have high ceilings, windows that are not too big and of course air-conditioning!
Check-in is from 14.00 and checkout until 11.00. Let us know around what time you would like to arrive and we will do our best to make the studio ready for you also before 14.00. We can always store your luggage.
We are not a hotel and do not have a reception. The studio’s are independent with their own front door and we live close by (see the next question), but can’t see it if someone is waiting in front of the door. If you call us or send us a message about half an hour before you are in the centre, we can come to welcome you or explain you our new self check-in. This way, you will never have to wait. Thank you!
We do not live in the same building, but very very close. Within 1 minute we can be there when you have a problem, need anything or have questions. Do not hesitate to contact us during your stay! The studio’s have WiFi so you can also use WhatsApp.
Yes, you can pay by card or cash.
We love all things special, so yes! Would you like to surprise your loved one with champagne in the morning? Rose petals on the bed? Flowers? A special breakfast? A fridge full of coca cola, because… well… you just love to drink coca cola? Please let us know if you have any special requests and we will assist you in any way we can!
You can reach the center in about 10 minutes by car. A taxi costs about 25-30 euros. Ask for the price you get in the taxi and let the driver bring you to Via Giovanni Tarantini 25 or restaurant il Giardino, which is at the corner of the street where our B&B is located.
The cheapest option is the bus (STP Brindisi
). You will find the busstop immediately when you exit the arrivals on your right and the bus goes from Brindisi Airport (Papola-Casale) to the center of Brindisi (train station and via del Mare / Piazza Capitanerie di Porto) and the port of Costa Morena, where the ferries leave.
The line is a circular line terminating at the airport, it runs every day and runs from 05:30 in the morning (from Piazza Crispi – train station) to 23:45, every 30 minutes. You can buy a ticket for 1 euro on the bus.
The public transport in Salento is ok. From Brindisi you can take the train
to Lecce (20 minutes). You can also take the train to Bari. That train stops at:
- San Vito Dei Normanni
- Polignano a Mare
- Mola di Bari
- Bari Torre a Mare
- Bari Centrale
With another company you can go to Gallipoli and Alberobello. Please keep in mind that this will take you a while (the car is much much faster) From the 25th of June until the 5th of September it is also possible to use the bus service ‘Salento by bus‘. This bus leaves from Lecce. From the Brindisi station you can take the bus to the beaches of Brindisi. But please be aware: this bus is often very busy and there is a timetable, but it can happen that you have to wait for a while. If you can afford it, hire a car! Whatever you decide, we are happy to help you planning your trip!
We definitely recommend hiring a car to make the most out of your holiday in Salento. This way, you can tour around the coast and it will also be easier to visit the cities and little villages. The cities in Salento are not that big, so you can visit them in about half a day. Having a car gives you the flexibility to head to another city or a beach closeby. We also love having dinner in smaller, more authentic places. Without a car, those places are impossible to visit. Salento is very flat and the roads are good and easy. In Brindisi you can park for free close to the studio (see next question). Brindisi is located in the middle of Salento which makes it the perfect place to stay. Within a maximum of one hour drive you are wherever you want to go (Gallipoli for example, or Otranto). We recommend having a look at Sunny Cars when searching for a car. This is a website that finds the best deals and gives you all-inclusive (insurance, etc.) prices, to make sure you know exactly what you are going to pay. Choose a small car if you are just with 2. It is easier to park and usually you will get whatever they have anyway… We already were given a cabrio for the price of a Panda, twice! Always book your car online, it is much cheaper than booking it here at the desk.
Yes you can! Parking in Brindisi is usually no problem. If you are looking for free parking you can park anywhere in the city between the white lines. Keep in mind that it is easiest to park if you arrive before around 19.00, as after the city will be busier and busier. If you have a lot of luggage you can park shortly at Via Giovanni Tarantini 25. The studio is just a few meters from that.
Here you can find a map we have created with parking spots close to the studio.
