                                                            We enjoyed a lovely week in Symo and Pepe's compact cottage. They gave us a warm welcome, and set us up with a tasty platter of treats and a bottle of wine to start our holiday off with a lovely lunch! The cottage was well equipped and comfortable, and we took Pepe's advice to shop at the local Mon Mark and nearby bakery. The drive into Lecce to find larger supermarkets was too stressful! Although the weather was not always great, we still found the sea warm enough for great swims. Our favourite beach was at Torre del Orzo, well worth the half hour drive down towards Ortranto. Many thanks, Symo and Pepe. Peter and Bridget from London, England.

                                                            One of the best villas I have stayed in and I have

                                                            The villa is based in Lindinuso in Puglia, Italy. The villa is very comfortable with all the amenities required for a group of friends or families with children and the pool is very safe for children. The bedrooms are large and airy with both upstairs bedrooms having large balconies. The kitchen is perfectly adequate to cook full meals and the downstairs has a large lounge/dining area. The verandah is superb with plenty of shade and space to dine outside. All in all the perfect villa. The owners Richard and Noirin are close by and can be texted or rung and they are there very quickly should there be an emergency. They are both very friendly and keen to help as much as they can. My only problem, which is nothing to do with the villa, is that we chose to go mid-end of September and restaurants and shops within walking distance were closing down for the season in Lindinuso. There were, however, plenty of shops, supermarkets and restaurants within a short driving distance. One of the best villas I have stayed in and I have no hesitation in highly recommending it.

                                                            Perfect Puglia

                                                            This was our third visit to Villa Rosa and we are already planning to return next year. We have fallen in love with the villa and indeed with the whole of the Salento region! Once again the welcome package was amazing and means you can immediately relax and start to enjoy your holiday - it not only includes the essentials like milk, cheese and cold meats but an incredibly generous amount of delicious local wines, homemade limoncello and lemonade, pasta, snacks and even your first meal, made by the local Puglia Chef. Bob and Debie, the owners work so hard to ensure your holiday is perfect. We arrived late at night due to flight delays but Bob was still there to meet us with a friendly greeting - he'd even put our wine in the fridge to chill! This year we once again took advantage of Bob and Debbie's wide range of local contacts and enjoyed some amazing days out. We went wine and food tasting, visited a beautiful local masseria for an alfresco lunch and an afternoon around the pool. We made salsa with a local family and ended up being invited by them first to a local festival and then to a meal at their house! This is typical of the friendly welcome we received from the locals. The food and wine in the area is wonderful and there are loads of local markets and restaurants to explore. If you wanted to just chill out by the pool or on the many nearby beaches then that is very easy to do too, or explore gorgeous local towns and cities like Lecce, Otranto, Gallipoli and ( a new discovery this year) Squinzano. I really can't recommend this villa more highly, unlike some other places we have visited there is no false advertising, what you see on the website is exactly what you get, or no, actually it's far better than that! The ultimate compliment I can give is that part of me wants to keep this villa and the Salento region to myself - it's so unspoiled. But Bob and Debbie deserve to have people beating down their doors to stay here. We certainly cannot wait to return!
