Surrounded by prickly pears and olive trees, Sosta a Ponente Bed & Breakfast is also the place we live in. The property is located in the beautiful countryside between Matino and Gallipoli, 10 minutes from the blue sea of Punta della Suina and Lido Pizzo and 15 minutes from Baia Verde.
In this modern-style Bed & Breakfast you will find a double room with its private adjacent bathroom and a bigger room with ensuite bathroom and walk-in closet.
Our wish is to maintain the nostalgic idea of authentic B&B. You will come as a guest and leave as a friend. This is for us the true essence of B&B. Here you will find an intimate place (we host no more than 4 guests at a time), a cozy retreat (we take care of you and respect your privacy) and a hospitable home (we offer to make you live our day).
Since the philosophy at Sosta a Ponente is to truly respect the environment, the house was built with traditional local materials (stone and tuff). Ancient special techniques along with new conception building solutions allow us to live in a healthy and fresh environment, avoiding as much as possible the use of AC, thus saving considerable energy. If need be, you will find a stand fan in each room.
The subfloor heating, solar panels, spring water well and all the fixtures, together with our philosophy create a real eco-friendly accommodation.
You will taste the veggies grown in our garden, cultivated with love and passion. You may go grab your favorite fruit or the reddest cherry tomatoes to top your own frisa, and then taste it ‘al fresco’ listening to the cicadas’ symphony.
We consider breakfast time a kind of liturgy. We will make your morning sweet and beautiful, offering you genuine local products. We will offer you dairy products from local certificated farms, the same with extra virgin olive oil and bakery specialties.
If you are looking for noise and clubbing, our B&B is not the best solution for it is perfect if you wish for direct contact with nature, true relax, real taste, nice human touch and the sweetness of doing nothing.
Sport lovers will either go for a jog, play tennis next door or borrow one of our bikes. As for the sea, we will suggest the most beautiful beaches according to your wishes (sandy, rocky, resort or free). We personally do kite surf so we know all about the best spots around, and among our friends is the manager of a sailing school. Therefore you can count on us to save money on your water activities.
We will also help you with your gastro tour. We have a selection of local restaurants according to what you will be looking for (fish restaurant, masseria, vegetarian and even vegan food). We know places… (that we won’t name here!) where the food’s good and doesn’t cost much but we personally prefer to eat amazingly and pay accordingly.
We truly, deeply love animals. Ours live in peace thanks to the overall positive energy of the place. At present we have a chick, Aquila Due, that gives us the eggs we use to bake your breakfast cakes, two doggies (Boris “the Easy One” and Yan “the Big Shot”) and four kitties (“Miss Mia” and Pepe “the King”), therefore you’re are most welcome to bring your own pet !
