Villa Augusta is truly located 'away from it all', so if you're looking for peace and quite place this is right for you. The property offers various activities for families: swimming pool with sunbeds, bicycles, table football, hammocks, even kids playground.
Antonio is a great host and is available for help when required.
Villa is located just 15 minutes drive from the centre of Lecce, which is a great starting point for exploring Puglia. There are many beautiful places in the region to visit.
Overall our 10 people party really enjoyed our 10 night stay at Villa Augusta and would highly recommend it to anybody looking for countryside escape.
The photos of this property just don't do it justice, it's a lot bigger than it looks and is very pretty. We travelled as a group of 8 adults and 3 small children and there was more than enough space for all of us. There is plenty of outdoor seating, lots for the children (trampoline, slide, swings, bikes) and the pool has a really good shallow end for them to splash about in.
The property itself was very clean and obviously well looked after and well equipped. The owner was lovely and very welcoming, always happy to answer any questions and recommended places to visit, even a good wine shop!
The nearby beach St Isodoro was beautiful and again very well looked after, I would also recommend a visit to Lecce with it's beautiful baroque buildings and plenty of restaurants and shops, you could spend hours there.
I have visited many places in Italy, but I loved the relaxed feel of Puglia, it is less touristy than other areas and the people are very friendly, and children always seemed welcome where we went.
I would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone wanting peace and quiet but with plenty of nearby things to see and do. My only disappointment is that I didn't book for two weeks!
