About Jane Hope Kavanagh
My beautiful dog !!! I wanted a change of life style after nearly 30 years as a hairdreser - make-up artist for film and tv, although I still like to keep my hand in by working occasionally. I live most of the year in San Vito dei Normanni, thankfully I'm fluent in Italian, due to owning a hairdressers in Milan a few years ago.
Jane Hope Kavanagh purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Jane Hope Kavanagh chose San Vito dei Normanni
We fell in love with our 1970's built property in 2004, it has a peaceful and happy feeling, though not the most beautiful house in Puglia it has bags of charm, at least in our eyes. Also it's huge with plenty of space for everyone.
What makes this Villa unique
Peace and tranquility, should you want it. Geographically San Vito is right in the middle of some of the most beautiful towns and countryside of Puglia.

Very enjoyable, very relaxing. Plenty of space and a lovely pool. The weather for us was very hot but there was plenty of shade and the air con was a great bonus. All fresco dining under olive trees or vines was great too. But the cicadas were very noisy during the day although they were quiet at night. The olive and other trees shed their leaves continuously so sweeping up was necessary.
Owner visited daily to water the garden and remove our rubbish and was a great help in advising where to shop or dine out.
Overall a lovely relaxing place.
Our holidays was very nice. We spent beautiful time. All for you need, you can find in Villa. Thank you Jane once more:))
Thank you Diane. I’m so pleased you enjoyed Villa Hope and your birthday party we organized there. It’s such a good venue for family parties. What a shame you couldn’t stay longer, I hope you all can come back soon.
What a lovely holiday
We rented all 3 villas for a big family holiday, the villas were individually spacious so everyone had their own space whilst the pool area and large outside dining area was was lovely for us all to get together. The pool area was great for relaxing around and was great fun for the younger ones in the group. Jane was very helpful, she was staying locally so popped in regularly to check everything was okay and was a great help with local information on restaurants and places to visit, she even helped out with booking taxis so the younger ones in our group could visit the local late night night spots. We visited beautiful Ostuni and Alberobello and San Vito itself, although a working town rather than a tourist town, has a lovely square with plenty of bars, restaurant, cafe and shops and entertainment.
We all enjoyed our holiday and a big thank you to Jane for all her help.
Thank you Louise for the review.
It was an absolute pleasure meeting you all.
I think holidays are very important times especially for big family groups. Also a great opportunity to show off Puglia to people that don't know it. It's a very special place, food is great so are the people and of course the beaches are fantastic.
Tourists are made to feel very welcome here, not every resort treats tourists like the Pugliese.
Wonderful property and location
We spent two weeks in Villa Hope last Summer, and it was a very enjoyable experience. Jane was welcoming, helpful with tip as about restaurants, where to shop, places to visit. We fell in love with Puglia and will definitely go back, thanks to an excellent experience. Don't forget to ask for Mimo, the pizzaiolo to come one evening for home made pizza using Jane's property pizza oven. A real treat! Paulina, Maxim and family
Thank you Paulina it was a pleasure having you here in San Vito dei Normanni. The location of Villa Hope is perfect as we are in the middle of such interesting places to visit, Ostuni with it's beautiful white medieval city, Carovigno and Ceglie with their amazing restaurants, Lecce, the "Florence of the South" and of course all the local beautiful beaches. You certainly made the most of your trip to Puglia.
It would be lovely to see you all again.
Wonderful holiday experience
We had a wonderful experience when we rented this lovely property a few weeks ago. The communication with the owner was excellent and she helped us, not only with everything regarding the house, but also preparing and arranging a lovely birthday party with our own pizza baker and a beautiful cake. We also had great assistance and help during our stay with people looking in on us and helping us out with things regarding the house but also with suggesting restaurants and nice beaches and other places worth visiting.
The property itself was spacious, clean, and very well equipped with everything from a dishwasher to books, games and dvds. The pool area was great with comfortable chairs and also a covered area offering shade. We also very much enjoyed the long table under the grapevines where we all had breakfast together and dinner, drinks, cardgames and chats at night. The villa is also very well located with lots of beautiful cities and beaches nearby, you do need a car though, as it is located outside town.
I would definitly recomend this to anyone and all of us (we travelled in 6 adults and 6 children) would love to come back again.
