Make a holiday rental home or villa in Puglia, Italy your home away from home

Puglia (or Apulia), is a gastronomic honey pot. Located on the South East or ‘heel’ of Italy, Puglia provides much of Italy’s fresh produce. 70% of Italy’s fish, olive oil and pasta all comes from this region, which is enough of an excuse alone to take a holiday rental in Puglia! Puglia is a dramatic land of natural beauty too, with stunning views offered from the majority of Puglia's holiday villas.

Probably the best property we have rented in over 25 years for being the 'complete package'. So relaxing and yet with plenty of excursions to keep you well occupied. We hope to return !

What a great holiday - the villa was lovely, recently refurbished to a high standard and offered everything we needed and more. The beds were extremely comfortable, showers were really good, the kitchen was well equipped but the absolute icing on the cake was the outside area! The pool is wonderful and the various sitting areas offer extra space both in full sun or the shade! The gazebo area is well equipped with comfortable armchairs and small tables. The outside BBQ area is perfectly located next to the side door and close to the kitchen. Jackie and Vincenzo were wonderful, they are helpful and so friendly and took care of the pool, watering the garden and helped out with the rubbish collections! The location is rural and quiet, but really pleasant - the villa is a good 20-25 minute walk from the nearest restaurant, however San Vito is lovey. It took a little getting used to as it is not at all touristy, but this adds to its charm - we were very lucky to visit during the annual Fiesta - a real bonus! There are good restaurants and access to other areas is excellent - the roads were great and driving wasn't too stressful!! We would definitely recommend visiting Ostuni and Albarabello was just stunning - we did the Segway tour, very informative, interesting and a lot of fun! Thank you again Jackie.... we had a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday x

Melanie who we rented house from was so helpful with recommendations and help. Would defiantly use them again.
