Casa Gelsomino - Holiday apartment with pool near Cisternino

Charming casolare with pool

The sun smiles down from an azure colored sky and bathes the landscape in warm, golden light. The white façade of the casolare (old country house) greets you from afar and and the bright colors of gorgeous blossoms bid a charming welcome – what a holiday dream!  

In this unique, culturally as well as scenically fascinating region, you can easily combine culture and beach holidays during your stay at Casa Gelsomino.

The trulli village of Alberobello is only a stone’s throw away; Cisternino with its picturesque center lies, so to speak, right in front of your door; long beaches of golden yellow sand along the crystal clear sea are found only a few kilometers to the west.

The casolare of friendly owner Nicola is an ideal retreat, whether you wish to indulge in your holiday read on the roofed terrace or to enjoy the southern Italian sun and unwind at the pool.

The lovely holiday apartment

The renovated country house includes altogether 4 holiday apartments, each of which has a separate entrance and a private terrace.

At Casa Gelsomino, a cozy bedroom with double bed offers sleeping facility for two. Should there be 1-2 further guests (3rd/4th person), the couch in the living room is easily and quickly turned into a bed for them.

Furnishing of the living-dining room includes the sofa bed as well as dining furniture and SAT-TV (flat screen TV).

The kitchen features, amongst others, 4-burner gas stove, refrigerator with freezer compartment and microwave.

The bathroom is equipped with WC/bidet and shower.

Outdoor area and privacy

A fence separates the terrace of the apartment from the remaining premises of the casolare. Enjoy the sun, prepare something delicious on the grill, savor a glass of cool white wine or relax in the shade of the roofed part of your outdoor area.

The pool, however, is for shared use by all the inhabitants of the casolare. Relax on the sun beds or take a refreshing plunge into the water. The pool is open from May to October (changes due to weather conditions possible).

The area is framed by olive trees as well as other fragrant trees and blooming bushes.

Furnishing and parking

The pool as well as an outdoor shower and a washing machine are for shared use.

As far as TV is concerned, you can receive English channels, too. WIFI is also available at the apartment.

The walls of the holiday apartments are very strong, which is characteristic for old country houses in Apulia. This keeps them pleasantly cool in summer and air conditioning is not necessary. A fan is nevertheless provided.  

Parking: Parking is available on the private premises.


Breakfast can be booked onsite for € 7,50 per person. Breakfast includes both savory, e.g. cold cuts and cheese, and sweet components.

Every now and then in summer, the owner organizes dinners for all those staying at the casolare to share. Depending on the dish (fish or meat), dinner starts at € 25 per person, beverages and the owner’s personal recommendation concerning wine included.

When we were onsite, we enjoyed, for example, a primo piatto – in this case, the typically local, home-made orechiette with tomato sugo.


At the small town of Casalini, ca. 800 m off, you find bars, grocery stores and pizzeria "Il Quadrifoglio".

A larger choice of restaurants and stores is found in the center of Cisternino, about 4 km off.

It takes you about half an hour by car to reach the famous trulli village of Alberobello.

Tip for an excursion

During your holidays you should of course plan for at least one day at and in the Mediterranean Sea.

The charming small seaside resort of Torre Canne, for example, is only a few kilometers from Casalino. During the summer months, there are a lot of tourists, but during low season, you have often got the fine sandy beach all to yourself.

At the beaches of Pilone, located towards Ostuni, water bugs get their money’s worth as well.

For further tips, recommendations etc. regarding your holidays at Casa Gelsomino and Cisternino do not hesitate to ask Nicola, he will be glad to help you on.

Die Lage der Unterkunft ist optimal. Sehr angetan waren wir außerdem von der Sauberkeit sowie von unserem Gastgeber, der viele Tipps gegeben hat und auch immer wieder mal selbst kocht. Definitiv ein besonderes Erlebnis war für uns, als wir von ihm dazu eingeladen wurden, am Abend auch zum Cousin/Cousine-Treffen zu kommen. Bei der Anreise hat ebenfalls alles einwandfrei geklappt, die Anfahrtsbeschreibung passte prima. Auf jeden Fall haben uns die Herzlichkeit des Gastgebers und auch die Lage überzeugt, da man mit dem Mietwagen nicht stundenlang fahren musste. Deshalb: Jederzeit nochmal!

An Apulien hat uns vor allem die Urtümlichkeit ohne übermäßig erkennbaren Einfluss von Massentourismus sehr gefallen. Unsere Unterkunft war toll – besonders die Herzlichkeit und das stete Kümmern des Gastgebers sowie die liebevoll eingerichteten Wohnräume und der Außenbereich. Unvergesslich auch die gemeinsamen Abendessen mit den Gästen der Masseria Piccola bei unserem Vermieter Nicola, der uns alle vorzüglich bekocht hat. Wer in diese Region kommt, darf sich die Grotte von Castellana nicht entgehen lassen - echt beeindruckend. Man sollte sich auch die große Runde gönnen. Dies war sicherlich nicht unser letzter Urlaub hier, weil es im Norden sowie im Süden Apuliens noch vieles zu entdecken gibt. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder!

Bernhard H., Wülfrath, Juli 2017

Die Strände und die schönen Orte in Apulien sind einfach ein Traum. An der Unterkunft haben uns vor allem die Lage, die Freundlichkeit des Besitzers und die tolle Außenterrasse gefallen. Wer auswärts essen gehen möchte, der sollte nach Locorotondo fahren oder die Locanda in Casalini aufsuchen. Dort gibt es fantastische Antipasti, von denen man allein mehr als satt wird. Außerdem auf keinen Fall verpassen: ein Abendessen bei Nicola! Wir möchten auf jeden Fall noch einmal hierher kommen, wegen der Sonne, dem Meer, der Einfachheit und Langsamkeit. Alles zusammen war sehr erholsam!
