Arrival Airports / Train Station
Most guests fly to Bari. Travel time from the airport to the retreat is approx 1hr 15 mins.
You can also fly to Brindisi.
There is a station in our local town Martina Franca – please let us know in advance so that we can arrange a local taxi to pick you up from there, as there is no taxi rank. Likewise, if you travel from Matera, Lecce, Polignano etc, let us know in advance so that we can arrange a taxi to collect you.
If getting to Bari is inconvenient for any reason, why not arrive a day early and book a hotel in Bari for a night, then enjoy a leisurely Sunday morning. Then either rent a car, or join our taxi-share either at Bari airport, or at Bari central railway station after lunch.
We are located in a beautiful world heritage site. If you hire a car at the airport, you will save on airport transfers (80€). And it gives you the freedom to explore the local area and beaches during your stay.
(Suggestion: find cheapest car hire deals at RentalCars.com)
At the entrance to the property the gates are normally closed. Ring the intercom buzzer for assistance. If there is no reply, call +39 342 619 0945 for assistance.
