Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Brindisi area

Near the sea, large terrace, air-conditioned and central heating

Our beautiful villa, renovated to the highest standards, sits on the outskirts of the historic town of Ostuni, a medieval town with its maize of cobbled streets and baroque architecture. The gardens include over 200 vines, 15 different types of fruit trees, almond and olive trees. An all year round location, our villa is equipped with radiator gas central heating and air conditioning in the three double bedrooms. Outside the BBQ and large verandas make for wonderful al fresco eating and those lazy relaxing family meals. For the cooler evenings there is the modern equipped kitchen and large lounge / dining room to entertain or just enjoy romantic evenings. The villa has a roof terrace that has spectacular views for miles and offers extra privacy for sun-bathing. Ostuni, central to the area of Puglia boasts one of Europe's finest climates, spectacular natural coast line, beaches lapped by the clean waters of the Adriatic and friendly people that just love good food & wine.

Ostuni is central to Puglia and most locations are easily to drive to. Other locations to visit include Bari, Brindisi, Lecce, Alberobello, Otranto, Martina Franca and Fasano (including zoo safari)

Guestbook comments from the owner

We very much enjoyed the villa and it was lovely to be able to spend time in the shade as it was certainly very hot. Not sure what the daytime temperature was but we noticed 31 degrees at 11.30 one evening. Other than visiting a few beaches and walking into Ostuni a couple of times we didn't do much but just enjoyed the rest and relaxation. We found the Italians so friendly and helpful.

Amazing time-two years in a row!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the villa last year and had the good fortune to book it again for our holiday this year. If we return to Ostuni next year we definitely know where we will be staying!

The villa details are 100% accurate-nothing has been left open to interpretation. It is located exactly 3 km from Ostuni-the town centre-not the outskirts of the town!

It accommodates six adults comfortably both internally and externally. Inside is very light and airy and, on arrival, was spotlessly clean.

Externally the covered verandah was perfect for relaxing-reading, drinking the excellent local wine.....For the sunworshippers in our group the roof terrace was ideal.

We dined out most evenings in Ostuni but also ventured further afield. In Martina Franca we happened upon an amazing restaurant, opposite the church in the main town square, frequented by locals. It was so good we returned-twice!

There are numerous beaches a short car ride from the villa. Last year we frequented Torre Guaceto so headed back this year to be immediately remembered by the manager.

I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending the villa to family and friends.

To finish I would like to thank Constanza and Dave who were just a phone call away and able to advise us to what to do the night the lights went out as a result of the lightning storm!

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

The villa is fantastic, well maintained with everything you need. We stayed there from 27th aug 2010 - 10 Sept 2010. The area is really quiet and if you want a very relaxing holiday then this is the place for you.There are many beaches on the coast just a short distance away. The air conditioning is great a must in the summer months. I would recommend a visit to ostui which is very historic and certainly try a pizza there, they are perfect!. Another good place to eat is cistermino ther is a restuarant just as you go up the hill on the left hand side, the food is delicious. Alberobello is a must to visit the truli's are well worth a visit. Leece is another god place to eat with many restaurants.

We also spent a day at torranto which to be honest we did not enjoy at all.

Once again the villa is fantastic and I will definitely stay there again.

Many thanks to Neil & Linda

A very comfortable, clean house in a quiet setting with wonderful surroundings, and a privileged view from the roof. Plenty of things to do and see locally if you want to, with a walk in Ostuni along the alleys that thread upwards to the cathedral whilst stopping and enjoying a drink in one of the pavement cafes a particular joy. I would have no hesitation returning.

A cosy house in Ostuni

  • 5 of 5

A well-maintained and fully equipped cosy house in peaceful environment on the outskirts of the beautiful and typically Italian town Ostuni, where there was a nice "piazza", good restaurants and friendly people. Many interesting places worth seeing nearby. Clean and free sandy beaches about 10 km away.Highly recommendable property.

Wooderful holidays

  • 5 of 5

We liked your villa very much, it is very comfortable, has a wonderful location and we found all things we needed

in the house. It has a very good equipment. The weather was o.k., we could sit in the sun, made long walks at the coast and could even swim in the sea. We were in many locations in Puglia, like Bari, Alberobello, Otranto

and even to Marina di Leuca. Ostuni is very nice and we found everything to shop. Most we liked the

fishrestaurant La Vela in Villanova and in Brindisi Il Pescatore Jaccato at Brindisi Port.

Ostuni is a beautiful medieval town with white-washed houses, windy cobbled streets and breath taking views across the countryside and natural coast line. A short drive away are the unspoiled sandy beaches lapped by the clean waters of the Adriatic. The whole area is a food and wine lovers paradise with local fresh produce and wonderful local wines available everywhere. Puglia being a peninsula is flanked by both the Adriatic and Ionian Seas, no wonder the numerous fresh fish shops outnumber the butchers. This is no holiday for those seeking mass tourism, slot machines, English pubs or fish and chip shops but it is for those who love quality but inexpensive restaurants, the atmosphere of local piazzas, friendly people, relaxed living and some of the best ice cream and coffee around. Travel into the countryside with the endless olive groves and orchards and you will also find local restaurants with the finest of local food. The towns of Lecce, Brindisi, Alberobello are close by.

Other Activities: Basket Ball and Football stadium
