“A naturalists' paradise”
Reviewed 22 July 2011 for a stay in April 2011

On our visits to Villa Oleandro we have always received a very warm welcome from Ian and Margherita who have a detailed knowledge of the area. We have rented the apartment 6 times, usually in April, as our interest is photographing the wild orchids for which the Gargano is famous. We have also visited in October - the autumn colours were magnificent, particularly in the Foresta Umbra which has extensive well marked footpaths. we will definitely return as there is still lots to see and do.
The apartment is comfortable and very well appointed with an exceptionally well equipped kitchen and large shower room. The log burning stove and a plentiful supply of olive wood gives a very cosy atmosphere on cooler evenings in the early spring and occasionally the central heating has been welcomed. On warm days we really enjoyed dining on the terrace with a view along the valley to the Adriatic.
Shopping is easy and fun in Vico, the ancient local hilltop town with a good food market and several shops, making self catering very easy. Our hosts have introduced us to some excellent restaurants, especially the local Trabucco - an ancient fishing platform.

“A Wonderful Holiday”
Reviewed 21 June 2011 for a stay in May 2011

This was a wonderful find, very rural set in the midst of hundreds of olive trees yet only 2km from a lovely beach. The apartment, although attached to the main house is completely private, very comfortable with everything you could need to self cater. The outside space has sumptuous terraces on three levels with ample shade, lots of locations for sunbathing and dining.

The owners were very respectful in affording us privacy whilst making sure that we were comfortable. Nothing appeared too much trouble.
The newly completed swimming pool and sun terrace were wonderful and I would imagine a must as the summer gets into full swing.
To get the most out of a stay it would be important to have transport as there is much to explore from the forests of the Gargano National Park to the mediaeval historic area of Vico itself.
All round a wonderful holiday in glorious surroundings we will surely go back as we hardly touched the surface

Management Response
22 Jun 2011
"The steep ground could be an issue for parents with very young children, or those with a physical disability.
Well worth a return visit!"

We do actually mention that the property is unsuitable for the disabled and for active children. The surrounding olive groves include steep ground but we would like to mention that all the terraces around the house are flat and comfortable for our guests.
