Agriturismo Arangea
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 January 2011

My wife and I stayed at Agriturismo Arangea with our large dog for a week and had a wonderful time. If you have never stayed at an agriturismo before, they are usually small, family-run farms that have some rooms to rent out. They operate very similar to a bed-and-breakfast, but they usually offer dinner with fresh farm produce at a flat rate.

Pros:
- Great location. The agriturismo is located about 10 minutes from Lecce with easy access to several highways. It is a great location for day trips to any of the towns on the peninsula, including Ostuni, Alberobello, Gallipoli, and Otranto. The farm itself is on a quiet road and has plenty of parking.
- Friendly hosts. Gianfranco and Guisefina are both helpful and accommodating. They made us feel extremely welcome and had wonderful recommendations for activities in the area. They also went above and beyond when we had some car trouble and helped us get a rental. That is the kind of service you would never get from a larger hotel!
- Large, clean rooms. The room was very comfortable with a large bed, desk, several chairs, and plenty of wardrobe space. The bathrooms are modern and spotlessly clean. Note that the water heater is European-size, so pace yourself with the hot water!
- Pet friendly. We brought our dog (70 lbs), and she (the dog) loved it here! The agriturismo has five cats who took turns running away from or teasing her, and it was the most fun she had all vacation. The rooms are plenty large for a dog crate, too, and the entire property is enclosed so pets can play. Gianfranco and Guisefina are pet-lovers, too, so if you are looking to travel with animals, this is a great option.
- Cost. You can't beat the price! Great bargin!
- Delicious meals. Breakfast was wonderful and included yogurt, breads, cold-cuts with a sandwich press, pastries, fresh-squeezed OJ, and various jams. We ate dinner there three times in six days and enjoyed it very much.

Cons:
- There really were no cons, but like most agriturismos, this is not a luxury hotel!

Summary:
We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone heading to Puglia, and would definitely stay there again in the future.

We stayed for a week in Arangea and we really enjoyed the place. Well situated, we were able to travel (to Lecce, Gallipoli, Otranto...) and go to the beach very easily in the Salento.
Concerning the room, it was perfect : clean and functional. The breakfast was enjoyable with fresh fruits everyday, cakes, bread...
we ate once for the dinner and we were very happy about the food. it's a typical family cuisine, much better than in a restaurant!
Gianfranco and Guisefina are very kind hosts, and do everything to make us feel comfortable.
And for all this, the rate between quality and price is really reasonnable.

We recently spent a week in this new agriturismo and we definately enjoyed our stay. It has opened only since last month, but the hospitality and warmth of the owners has filled eventual "gaps". The place is surrounded from the nature and is very peaceful. Also the area dedicated to children with playground is really nice, my daughter really enjoyed her stay there. Is situated in a small village outside lecce, but still really close to the center of it.
The rooms were very clean, quiet,but TV and a full body mirror were missing, but if you decide to stay in an agriturismo you propably can do without.
The only thing I would change was the breakfast, which was every day fresh fruits collected from the trees that surround the hotel like peaches and pears, and fresh cakes prepared from the owner, Mrs Giusi. All was delicious, but not everyone enjoys cakes for breakfast, something savoury or cereals would be welcomed.
Last but not least, the price was really reasonable.
