A Luxury Beachside Villa in Sunny Puglia
Overlooking a beautiful cove and sparkling turquoise waters, this 6-bed, 5-bath villa in the lively and popular resort of Marina di Pulsano offers a large and luxurious retreat only a few steps from the calm crystal clear and turquoise sea.
Relatively undiscovered by other Europeans, the Salento area in the south of Puglia (the southernmost part of Italy's heel), is where the Italians choose to holiday. Located on the western coast of Salento in the south of Puglia, its Ionian coast is much calmer and sandier than the better known Adriatic coastline on the eastern coast. Apart from its own natural coastal beauty, the area of Pulsano is at the heart of Primitivo wine country and provides the perfect base to explore the region’s coastline of Caribbean-style white beaches, pretty bays and coves, fabulous food and wine at amazing prices and stunning baroque architecture a little further afield.
The villa itself is great for large or two families, with lots of living space inside and out. Newly refurbished with architect designed interiors, there is sleeping for up to 12 in 6 bedrooms with 5 bathrooms (4 ensuite). There is a well-equipped kitchen, dining area with access to the terrace and living room all with sea views immediately outside. Outdoors, you can soak up the sun and share meals on one of three terraces, or cool off around the hot tub.
Who would need a swimming pool (even if one was allowed so close to the seaside) when you can step barefoot out of the house straight onto sandy beaches with crystal clear shallow waters lapping your feet. Ideal for toddlers learning to swim or sitting with your baby in the cooling seas, you can also launch your own kayaks from a little shallow slipway by the house and more able swimmers can swim through the waters going from totally clear to turquiose to deep blue beautifully refreshing waters.
Daily conveniences are also only a few steps away including, a bakery, cafe, bars and convenience store. In the mornings, you can grab fresh coffee, croissants and pastries just across the road.
Something for all the family with toddlers able to learn to swim, choice of games and kayaks for the kids, teenagers enjoying the lively resort during July and August, top up your tan from March-October, enjoy the delicious and wholesome food and wine for great value, enjoy the historic towns in the area and enjoy peace and tranquility September - June.
All told, whether you want to explore Puglia’s history-filled towns, dig into its fabulous food, or lounge on its sun-blessed beaches, this luxurious villa lets you have the Italian escape you’ve been dreaming about.
***** "Fantastic!" Dear Steve and Cathy, As we stayed with 2 parents and 8 kids from 12 to 20 years old, it was quite a challenge to find an accommodation that could satisfy all longings. Your house absolutely hit all topics. There is more than enough space in and around the house. Having the sea, shops and bars all within very short walking distance and still have privacy nothing could meet everyone’s desire more. The house is well equipped and feels comfortable in any way. Also having the Italian families as close neighbours gave us the feeling to be part of the “real Italian holiday-life”, which was very nice. Antonio has been a perfect host.

***** "Lovely vacation get away" We stayed at this villa in October. It was lovely and located right on the beach. The house was clean and felt very safe. We were a group of 7 women and we never felt uncomfortable or crowded. We would recommend this villa to anyone wanting a quiet getaway.
