Property description

Peschici is one of the 31 Places to Go in 2010 according to New York Times of January 10th 2010:

'The Italian peninsula of Gargano sits on the Adriatic and boasts a checklist of summer-perfect Italian holiday options....The offerings are largely a part of the protected Gargano National Park, a swath of terrain encompassing everything from the oak and beech Foresta Umbra to the sheer chalk-colored cliffs and grottoes of the coast’s Caribbean-clear waters to the postcard-worthy whitewashed villages that hug the sea....Peschici and Vieste, larger than fishing villages but cozier than cities, with white walls and medieval centers'

This is an opportunity for nature lovers who want to spend relaxing holidays in contact with sea, forests, mountains, lakes, animals, and flowers in Parco Nazionale del Gargano, Apulia, on the Adriatic Coast in the south of Italy.
Apulia is famous for being the place where the sound of the sea and the wind are coupled with the unique, breathtaking panorama of Gargano Promontory. Here in the heart of Apulia you will find Peschici, one of the most suggestive little villages of the coast. In its antique centre there is Casa Michelle, a small independent apartment on the second floor of a house recently renovated.

Apart from the dogs barking, children playing around, and women chatting and singing, in high season you do not hear a noise while staying at Casa Michelle, because it is beautifully located in a narrow, silent alley in the pedestrian area, near 'Piazza' and 'Castello,' the heart of the old village.In high season the village and the small alleys close to the apartment are crowded with lot of tourists who at night sit in the bars to drink a glass of wine and listen to music.

Casa Michelle can comfortably room four people or be a really great and spacious home for a couple. The apartment (about 60 square meters), fully air-conditioned, consists of two floors. The first floor hosts a large room with a sofa bed/dining area/kitchen corner (4 burners, oven, freezer) and bathroom with shower.
On the second floor you can find a loft with a double bed, a wardrobe and another bathroom with shower. This is one of the best spots of the apartment, as you can admire the deep blue of the sea directly from the bed that is in front of a large private and secluded terrace. On the terrace, of course, you can enjoy all your meals.
Casa Michelle is good also on the outside! In fact, a spiral staircase takes you to enjoy a breathtaking view of the sea from a solarium, shared with the guests of Casa Eloise.
Casa Eloise is the same owner’s, and the two apartments together are the ideal solution if you are more than 4 people and up to 8: next door to Casa Michelle, it is an independent apartment of 65 m2 consisting of a living room with dining area and open kitchen, sofa bed, TV, one double bedroom, one bedroom with bunk beds, bathroom with shower. Also from Casa Eloise, through a staircase, you can reach a private sea view terrace where you can have your meals, and the solarium at the top of the house.

With a nice 10 minutes walk on a quite steepy path from the historical centre, you can reach the wide village beach where from May to September you'll find a beach umbrella and 2 deckchairs ( included in the rent)just for you. But you can also arrive at the beach by car or, best of all, you can visit other small beaches along the coast, not far from the village. In September and October the weather is still mild and you can lie on the beach and get sun tunned.

Peschici and Gargano are the places you will enjoy the most if you want to plunge into the southern Italian atmosphere. Peschici is called the 'Gem' of Gargano, it is a cliff-top village which dates back to 950 A.D. The village itself is a cumulous of white low houses scattered against the rock. From afar you are dazzled by the white houses in the sun; at night the village looks like a 'crib.' The palette of many artists painted the bluish- green of the sea, the blue sky and the green Aleppo pines leaning over the water. At the foot of Peschici is a white sandy bay and, if you hire a boat, you discover lonely romantic little beaches. Excursion boats take you to 'grotte' and to Tremiti islands, quite an unspoilt area with a small local community, with wonderful beaches, a paradise for divers.

If you love history and art Trulli di Alberobello, Grotte di Castellana, Castel del Monte, Bari, Lecce and its baroque, Sassi di Matera are within an easy reach. And, why not, you can reach Naples with a 4 hours’ drive! The nature in Gargano, a hilly promontory in the north of Apulia, is strong, wild and very varied: terraced fields, olive plantations, lemons and oranges orchards, pines, lakes, steep white coast alternating with large sandy shores, small bays, deep inlets, caves, and marine cliffs. Gargano is also a 120,000 hectares National Park with forests, lagoons, marine reserves, and mountains.

Every season of the year is worth a visit: choose spring if you love nature and want to look for wild asparagus and for ORCHIDS, the queens of the flower kingdom. Within the bush and on the hills of Gargano there is the highest concentration of orchids in Europe: 85 species with a stunning range of colours. Choose summer if you love sea, beaches, music, people and autumn if you appreciate mushrooms, good fish and tranquillity and silence. Both in spring and in autumn the weather is mild and you can have nice swims in the sea and get suntanned.

And what about food all year round? The local cuisine, the typical 'cucina mediterranea' is rich and varied and includes genuine flavours such as olive oil, caciocavallo and pecorino cheese, fish, tomatoes, and handmade pasta.
