Reviewed September 8, 2013



We stayed for 2 weeks with our daughters and granddaughters. The house is pleasant with air-conditioning and mossie killers provided. The grounds were safe enough for the little ones to go off looking for lizards and picking lemons. We all loved the pool, the nearby beaches and the area is not too touristy. The owner was most helpful, with advice and translation to hand when we needed it. We had a lovely time.

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 15 jours merveilleux dans cette propriété , que Ray et Lina ont parfaitement décrite dans l'annonce.

Nous n'avons pas souffert de la chaleur, et la maison dispose de tout ce que l'on a besoin.

La maison était très propre et bien entretenue, ainsi que le jardin ( fabuleux! )et la piscine, tellement appréciable pour se rafraichir!

Mais ce que nous tenons vraiment à souligner, c'est l'accueil si chaleureux et l'attention que nous ont portés les propriétaires, et notamment Lina , qu'on a même eu du mal à quitter à la fin du séjour. Elle était devenue notre amie !

Nous conseillons donc vivement la location à ceux qui veulent découvrir cette partie des Pouilles et goûter aux délices culinaires , "maritimes " (la mer ionienne est exceptionnelle!) ,architecturaux ( Cisternino , Alberobello, Lecce...) de la région , sans oublier les champs d'oliviers à perte de vue!

Et bien-sûr que nous retournerons, même si c'est loin de chez nous!

MERCI à vous deux! et BACIONI a LINA!

Owner's Response: Isabelle, Many Thanks for your review, we really enjoyed your company and having you at Villa Bombolina. We try hard to offer a personalised niche service and very pleased that it was appreciated by you. We really hope you return soon. ------- Guest response translated in English:- We spent 15 wonderful days in this property, Lina and Ray were fully described in the announcement. We have not suffered from the heat, and the house has everything you need. The house was very clean and well maintained and the garden (fabulous!) And the pool, so valuable to refresh! But what we really want to emphasize is the warm welcome and attention we have worn the owners, including Lina, we even struggled to leave at the end of the stay. She became our friend! We urge rent to those who want to discover this part of Puglia and taste the culinary delights, "maritime" (the Ionian Sea is exceptional!), Architectural (Cisternino, Alberobello, Lecce ...) in the region, not to mention the olive groves of sight! And of course we will return, even if it is away from home! Thanks to you two!

Far from the madding crowd...

We have just returned from a 10 day stay at Villa Bombolina. The property is located in an olive garden featuring also fig and other trees (we didn't have to buy lemons as we had the lemon tree there :)), with several different spots meant for relaxation, eating or playing.It was clean and practical but most of all very tranquil (if you exclude the ciccadas, which you tend to get used to anyway).

The description on the site matched what we found in reality and more.

One of the best features of the place are ... its owners, wonderful people which really did their best to accommodate our needs. For example, we mentioned to Lina that a microwave oven might be useful - the next day a brand new one was there, plugged in and ready to be used.The meal Lina cooked for us was excellent and the info provided regarding the area invaluable.

The pool was on the small side but, on the other hand there were lots of inflatables to play with.

The place is very appropriate if you want to immerse yourself in the local (rural) atmosphere and a good starting point for exploring the greater area (Ostuni, Brindisi, Lecce, Alberobello, Cisternino etc.).

All in all it was a lovely experience and Villa Bombolina provided us with a place which, while vacationing in Puglia, we called home!

Puglia is in the "Heel of the Boot" of Italy. It is a wonderful place to explore for great food and wine, guaranteed sun and beautiful beaches. The summers are lovely and hot. There are wondefrul small towns such as Ostuni known as the "White City" with its historic centre and great restaurants; Alberbello, a "trulli" monument town and larger cities such as Brindisi, where you can shop and stroll or eat along the waterfront or the great Baroque architecture of Lecce. Torre Guaceto (about 10 minutes away) is a nature reserve and its long beach with white sand and crystal clear waters is great for swimming and tanning. Further afield, this little known region is awash with rolling vineyards, midieval villages and craggy shorelines, visit wine-making hilltop towns and soak up la dolce vita in sun-dappled piazzas. The nearest airport is at Brindisi about 15 minutes drive away and BARI about an hour away. There are train services to/from Brindisi from Rome and the North. There are ferries from Brindisi to Alabania, Greece and Turkey.
