About Richard & Noirin Bates
We are an Anglo-Irish couple who fell in love with Puglia and bought our first "Place in Puglia Villas" property ( Villa Sun Beach) as our holiday home when our family was young. Our love of the area grew and when our children flew the nest, we decided to relocate here to Puglia in 2006 which is the year that we bought and re-built Villa Nicola. We then sold our house and business back home, and relocated here and bought additional properties over the next few years. Each one has been transformed into beautiful holiday rentals for our guests, with many families returning to us year after year and becoming friends in the process. We purchased Villa Azzurra in autumn of 2011 which we fully rebuilt and had it ready for guests in the 2012 holiday season. Villa Suzannah is our latest Place in Puglia Villa and was purchased and fully upgraded for our guests in time for its first guests in May 2014. Each year from April when our guests start arriving, until the end of October when we close up for the winter, we dedicate ourselves to making sure that your hard earned and well deserved holiday goes as perfectly as possible and as we live just 10 minutes away from any of our properties, we are always on call if required during your stay. For our guests we can organise extra services such as In-Villa dining, In-Villa Italian cookery lessons, inshore sea fishing and coastal excursions, winery and wine-tasting tours, bicycle hire as well as restaurant recommendations and advise on excursions and attractions, full details of these and all other infomation are in each of the properties In-Villa guidebook or can be found on our website at www.placeinpuglia.com.

Great house for a multi generation family holiday
We were met at the property by Richard and Noirin who arrived very promptly, in spite of a slight miscommunication initially. They were very welcoming and showed us how everything worked and where everything was located. The house was fabulous. I appreciated the fact that there was physical separation between the room and bathroom for me and my husband and our daughter and her family were upstairs with their own two bedrooms and bathroom. The welcome package was great and meant that we didn't really need to get to a supermarket till the next day, which we appreciated after the long drive from Rome airport.
The house was well located, close to the beach and not far to a cafe and a pasticceria which had beautiful bread, pastries etc and was open every day from early till late. The only drawback to the place was that the village of Lendinuso was largely closed because the "season" was over, in spite of the fact that the weather was still very warm and we swam every day. However the peace and quiet was great. The small people probably would have enjoyed the company of other children on the beach though had there been more people around.
The house was an easy drive to Lecce, Alborebello, Oranto and Gallipoli and we went to some lovely beaches along the coast. The market at Castelabate was fantastic, very local and so cheap. The house itself was very clean and well maintained and Richard very responsive to all queries. He even delivered additional pegs for the almost daily wash that having small children necessitates! We were there for 12 days and could easily have stayed longer.
Beautiful villa in Puglia
This was our second stay at this beautiful villa, and again we had a wonderful holiday. Richard and Noirin are very attentive hosts and facilitated an early arrival at the villa for us. They left an amazing welcome basket full of lots of local goodies and accommodated dietary requirements too. The villa is perfect for our family with three active boys. It is very well presented and maintained. There was an issue with the outdoor toilet which Richard ensured was repaired the day we reported it.
The villa is very close to the beach and the village has a lovely delicatessen, butchers and small supermarket. There are some nice pubs and pizza restaurants within walking distance.
This year we visited Ostuna, Zindalusa Grotte and the Water park. These were all great trips and we especially enjoyed the outdoor swimming pool at the Grotte.
We liked it so much we are returning next year!
The villa is clean, comfortable and spacious. The swimming pool is well maintained and perfect for cooling off in the lovely Puglian sunshine. The owners are very welcoming and extremely helpful. The beach is less than a five minute walk away and you can also walk to a few fab restaurants. We hired a car and travelled around the stunning Puglian coast. We visited beautiful places such as Lecce, Brindisi and Monopoli. There is a great water park to visit which the children loved. This is our second visit to the villa and we will definitely return. We would highly recommend this villa and the hosts.
Excellent for family holiday
Six adults and one child stayed for first week of September 2016.
Very good size with a huge lounge/diner, open plan kitchen and large bedrooms. Balconies to both upstairs bedrooms and a roof top terrace. Plenty of room for us not to be all on top of one another.
Very well equipped, comfortable beds and clean. The welcome pack was great with everything necessary to start us off.
Outside there is an excellent pool, large enough for a proper swim. A yard at the back for washing and hanging clothes, a WC and shower and a built in BBQ (charcoal can be purchased at the large Conad supermarket in Torchiarolo, a 15 min drive away).
The whole property is very secure in a residential area. The beach and pizzerias are only a short walk away and the local village has a very good bakery and two butchers/delicatessens. There is a fruit and veg stall outside the bakery some days.
All in all Villa Suzannah is an excellent base for a beach holiday and visiting places in the Puglia region. Thanks Richard and Noirin.
Perfect for family get away
This was the second villa we stayed in during our trip to Italy and it was perfect for what we wanted. The pool is wonderful with shady areas to keep the children cool. The outside space is excellent for families with children as space to play away from the pool and a large covered area to escape from the sun. The villa itself is well maintained and layout worked well for us as 2 families. When the heat became too much in the villa the air con was excellent at rapidly cooling either upstairs or downstairs.
The local area was refreshingly non commercial! During siesta time there is nowhere to eat as locals close down but once you get into the habit this is perfectly workable. The local restaurants close to th villa had great food and atmosphere and the 2 minute walk to the bakery every morning was perfect for croissants!
We didn't use the beach by the villa on beach days but looked great! We drove 5 mins to the next village where the man made enclaves worked for us with littlies as water nice and shallow.
Richard and Noirin were great with helping us get the most from our stay both before and during. Excellent hosts - couldn't have asked for better, always on hand when needed.
Spacious, well appointed and friendly owners
Lovely welcome from Richard and Noirin. Villa is excellent - clean, large rooms and has everything one could need including aircon. Lovely pool and plenty of sun loungers. We had a great time here. We enjoyed picking the lemons and herbs for BBQs, the property is very private and well located for exploring Puglia.
