From the villa’s central location you can easily visit the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Alberobello and Matera, plus the Necropolis of Egnathia, the Castles of Conversano and Monopoli and the Baroque City of Lecce, which has been described as the Florence of the South

The Ostuni countryside is tranquil and the ideal place to relax and unwind. The beautiful setting and vibrant atmosphere are perfect for families, friends & couples

Ostuni is one of the most stunning cities of Southern Italy for the dazzling effect of its whitewashed houses. Hints of the middle ages are at hand in every corner of the old town, known as the "White City", la citta bianca in Italian. It is a bustling town, with many restaurants and bars and plenty of night life

In close driving distance to the villa you are spoilt for choice for wonderful restaurants where you can sample the fantastic locally produced food, such as the delicious burrata cheese, ear shaped orecchiette pasta and an abundance of seafood, as well as the local wine. There are also many local interesting markets, Ostuni’s on a Saturday morning being the best

Heaven

  • 5 out of 5
Our family of 13 (2 grandparents, 3 daughters & husbands, 5 grandchildren aged 5 to 12) found the beautifully furnished Villa Aurora to be an idyllic home for our holiday. With 4 separate living areas, each with their own bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens and living areas, plus lots of large communal areas, each family unit could have its own space, as well as join together as one big group. We all tended to gather in one of the big family-sized kitchens for breakfast, then around the beautiful swimming pool during the day, if not out and about, exploring the beautiful ancient Puglian towns perched on hilltops in all directions. This villa was absolutely perfect for our big family gathering and we enjoyed many heavenly nights eating together on the rooftop terrace. The owners have clearly worked hard to provide all that anyone could want in a wonderful family holiday, and the villa would be just right for many other groups. There is certainly lots to explore and enjoy in this beautiful part of Southern Italy, and we found all the locals friendly and delightfully helpful, even if we couldn't always exactly understand each other! They would be happy to walk down a street with you, to be sure you found what you were looking for. This is a holiday area enjoyed as much by the Italians themselves as by the relatively few overseas tourists. There is much more than you have time to enjoy in just a week or two, and you will definitely want to return!

Beautiful Villa Aurora

  • 5 out of 5
We (13 of us - 9 adults and 4 kids) spent 4 glorious days in Villa Aurora this July. The villa is situated very close to a quaint city and beautiful beaches yet far enough away to have peace and tranquility. The owners have done a simply amazing job at ensuring their guests have everything to make their stay a memorable one. The villa was very clean, beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything and everything we needed to cook the most amazing meals. The gardens are so beautiful. The outdoor eating area's (3 in total) were spectacular - we ate dinner every night on the rooftop terrace and watched the sun set. It was unbelievable! The owners were very kind and always available to answer any question we had. They kindly provided us with a lovely card and welcoming basket as well as a binder with information about where to eat, shop, bank, sight see, etc. They even put us in touch with a woman that cooked us the most mouth watering meal one evening at the villa! Soooo good!! We spent many hours lounging around the pool, walking through the gardens, enjoying a game of ping pong, pool or foosball. We took a day trip visiting one of the ciities in the area. We had an amazing time! I would recommend this villa to anyone that wants to experience a little bit heaven! Our only regret was that we were unable to spend a full week or two! Thank you villa Aurora. We hope to return one day soon.

A superb villa with all mod cons!

  • 5 out of 5
The villa itself has all amenities a family or group of friends could wish for. A roof terrace for evening drinks, a good sized pool, a full-sized snooker table, large TVs, electronic games, sound systems, large gardens, table tennis and table football........
The furnishings were all good quality, well chosen and, most important, comfortable!
All cooking, laundry and shower facilities were excellent.
We booked it for a large family party and also had friends staying nearby. The owner was very helpful and knowledgeable with finding local accommodation for those who couldn't join us in the villa.
Nothing was too much trouble and that was very important as we were visiting the area for the first time.
I would certainly have no hesitation in booking the same villa again and cannot find fault with it.
The renovation, furnishings and facilities have obviously been a labour of love.
A huge, beautiful villa in a fabulous part of Italy.

So Good to Return

  • 5 out of 5
It was fantastic to return to the beautiful Villa Aurora. After having visited 3 years ago for a wedding we were able to return with friends and a number of new arrivals! Whilst seemingly not possible, the improvements to the villa keep coming and it is clear how much care, consideration and thought goes in to making a guests stay as relaxing and spectacular as possible. The stunning setting is coupled with every possible amenity making the villa perfect for a group trip. Linda and Chris, thanks for sharing your wonderful home with us once more and for your help arranging the private cook, beer & wine tasting evenings. Seeing our children being able to enjoy the setting and develop in one anothers company over the course of the week was priceless. A superb trip and a quite perfect Villa - Would not be out of place on MTV cribs!

FANTASTICO!

  • 5 out of 5
Villa Aurora truly does have the "WOW" factor. I cannot praise the accommodation highly enough. We are a mature group of 8 people who have been having villa holidays for many years now, and I have never known such attention to detail as in this villa. It is evident that this really is Linda & Chris's second home.

There is everything you need to have a peaceful, relaxing holiday, yet you are only 10 minutes drive from Ostuni, the stunningly beautiful "white city" where there are many shops, bars and restaurants. The villa is spotlessly clean.

Linda did everything in her power to make our holiday perfect and couldn't have been more helpful and informative.

We had never been to Puglia before and we loved the countryside and the trulli houses. We found the local people without exception to be helpful and friendly.

The highest recommendation we can give is that we would love to go back to Puglia and stay at the Villa Aurora.. and we never normally do repeat visits..... FANTASTICO!!

A Piece of Paradise in Italy

  • 5 out of 5
14 close friends (senior couples) stayed at the beautiful Villa Aurora and what a treat we had the weather was glorious the villa stunning in magnificent grounds.
The owners more than helpful, on one occasion they arranged for a lady to come and cook traditional Italian meals on a couple of nights, waited on and eating under the stars next to the pool was a real treat. Nearby Ostuni has lovely restaurants but don't forget your phase book. The beach is not too far away but we stayed at the villa most of the time as the local supermarket and local markets are just nearby so we all enjoyed the local produce in the shaded area by the pool.
The really comfortable villa is filled with the owners acquisitions from around the world which really added a different dimension to the stay. The owners attention to detail is exceptional. The games room on the lower ground floor was very popular in the evenings. The Trulli a very unique building. Can't wait to go back.
