Gioia del Colle is not very touristy, but if like local towns and are planning to do day trips through Puglia by car (Matera, Alberobello, Locorotondo, Polignano a Mare, Monopoli, Bari,... are all within 45 min driving), then Alex's apartement is the place to be! The apartment is located in a quiet neighborhoud near the cozy centre of Gioia del Colle where you can find nice bars and restaurants (10 min walking). Shops are within 5 min walking or 1 min by car. There is plenty (free) parking space around the building. Communication with Alex and his brother Marco is really easy since they speak English perfectly. They responded immediately and were very flexible when checking in and out. The apartment is wonderful, the photos don't lie. There is a nice terrace to have a breakfast or a glass of wine to end your day, a second balcony around the apartment. Both are accessible via large windows. Further, there is a fully equipped kitchen (with a dishwasher), a huge living room with comfortable sofa and tv, a small storage room, two bedrooms, two bathrooms (one larger with a jacuzzi and a small one with a rain shower both with toilet). The place is bug free because of all the insect screens in every window, the wifi is stable and there is also a washing machine if you need it. Everything was very clean and there where ample towels provided. The apartment is on the second floor and easily accessible with the stairs or elevator. I would definitely recommend this modern apartment.
