We just came back from a wonderfull stay at Residenza Gemma. I stayed with my wife and daughter of almost 2 years old.
The place is exactly like you expect from the pictures. Very clean, nice equipement in the appartment and a beautiful terras. Airconditioning is also functioning very well. Beds are really comfortable. Babybed was also perfect.
Cleaning is done almost every 2 or 3 days.
The pool is also very nice & big! Owners are very focussed to keep the pool clean and it works; the water is clear.
Melina is always helpfull when you ask her for help, recommandations etc.
Appartments can be a little noisy, but thats not a real problem.
Would definetely recommend it!!
Melina and giuseppe welcome you, kindly and naturally, in a superb place, all white, in the middle of olive groves, away from the hustle and bustle of Porto Cesareo, but only a few minutes from the beaches.
A beautiful swimming pool surrounded by beautiful spaces to rest. Everything is thought of for everyone's privacy.
Thank you for your warm welcome!
The best part: Melina's delicious cakes, all fresh, to start the day off right and Giuseppe's "available" organic tomato field!
