General information: Puglia gets close to 300 days sunshine a year with the warm weather starting in April and going right through until the end of October. The hottest months are July and August but with two seas around the area the air does not feel too oppressive during these months, especially as the property is located on a hillside. Spring and autumn is glorious- sunny and warm with wild flowers in abundance.

Italians are unashamedly devoted to celebrating everything Italian - religion, food, love... And they show it with festivals, there's almost one a week in the summer, celebrating everything from classical music to grapes. These family orientated events provide great free outdoor entertainment and gives you an insight into the wonderful hospitable Pugliese people. Puglia is something authentic and very Italian, come and find out for yourself and see why more people are recommending it.

Activities: There is no limit to the amount of activities you can do in the region whether you prefer soaking up the sun, shopping, sightseeing or something more active. Beautiful architecture, ancient castles and Baroque churches can be found in all the local towns and eating is an activity in itself as the region is a food and wine lovers paradise - no matter how hard you try it is difficult to eat badly. With over 400 miles of coastline, Puglia has a huge selection of sandy beaches/coves (all of which have blue flag status) and there are plenty of activities for the water sports enthusiasts.

If it is golfing you are looking for then Puglia has five major courses to offer. The 5* San Domenica Golf resort and spa near the fishing village of Savelettri, is the closest at only a 10-15 minute drive.

Beautiful villa

  • 4 of 5

My family has just returned from an enjoyable 10 day stay at Villa Capalu.

The villa is well equipped and wonderfully located in the region.

Maura was extremely helpful and informative in recommending places of interest to visit and a variety of local restaurants.

Lovely villa with multiple terraces

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in villa Capalu. We, two families of 4 grownups and 4 children had enough space and privacy. Villa is very cozy, you really feel at home away from home. We extremely enjoyed our evenings on the terrace under the olive trees. We grilled local chicken and had local vine with stracatella and strawberry sweet tomatoes. We were welcomed by lovely Maura, who prepared humper basket for us, offered and organised the private chef cooking for us on the arrival evening and predicted all our needs beforehand. You can hardly wish for a better and nicer host. The area itself is very nice, a lot to see and to do, amazing sea, food and people. Will definitely come back!

Wonderful Puglia

  • 5 of 5

This was our first holiday to Puglia-generally we holiday in France during the summer.

We were delighted with our choice this year and had an amazing time

Maura was so friendly and helpful but also very unobtrusive.It was fantastic to arrive late to a welcome hamper and the offer to phone for pizzas for us-Angelo's pizzas were delicious and arrived after 15 minutes!

Maura's villa is really beautiful-the website does not really do it justice.The trulli kitchen was so tastefully fitted and opened up on to a very large terrace with a comfy sitting area, a marble table with a wrought iron pergola(which looked beautiful at night when lit up with fairy lights!) and a barbecue built into the terrace.

We loved having so many different areas to sit, including the front verandah overlooking the Canale di Pirro and of course the wonderful pool area at the bottom of the steps.

We visited several local towns, generally in the mornings before it got too hot(Alberobello, Ostuni, Locorotondo)-we particularly enjoyed our lunches at the seafood shack Alba Chiara right on the sea just past Savelletri.

We really enjoyed spending time at the pool and the villa-often eating the fantastic local food(great food bought very cheaply at the market in Locorotondo and wine from the Cantina in Locorotondo)

We found Alberobello easy to get to for evening meals and our favourite restaurants were La Cantina, Fidelio and Gli Ulivi-great experiences.

We would love to visit again at some point!

fantastic week!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our week in Puglia! With regard to your villa, what can we say! We loved it! It was exactly what we needed to end our holiday with. It was in a beautiful position, excellently equipped, very comfortable, a real home from home! For me personally, my favourite bit was my own trulli kitchen! Ray may have told you that we were hardly away from the villa all week! We loved playing Perudo, cards, water volleyball, etc and just chilling by the pool as a family. The little we saw of the surrounding area we thought was really lovely. We didn't get around to swimming in the sea, but thought the coast was so unspoilt with development, which we loved. It is definitely an area of Italy that we would like to visit again, (and if we did so, would certainly like to stay in your villa again!)So now it is back to work for us all here, with fantastic memories and photos of our italian adventure to keep. We are all just very glad that we chose to stay in your villa!Thank you for a lovely week,

The perfect place to chill

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to completely chill out. We had a great time visiting the many lovely and very accessible villages within 20 minutes of the villa as well as the grotto and the beach. The four restaurants recommended in the housebook that we selected were all excellent but best of all was the villa itself with great views, total comfort both inside and out and just a terrific ambiance. We felt relaxed within five minutes of arriving and stayed that way until the minute we left. Ray was the perfect host and made us feel at completely at home - we nearly decided not to leave we felt so good. Philip and Eva were also very kind and welcoming. Thanks to you all and we will definately be back.

The wonderful thing about the local towns is that they all have their own character with historical centres quite unspoilt by new development. Within 10 minutes is Fasano, a modern town with banks, supermarkets, restaurants and an interesting old centre, Locorotondo, a hilltop town of remarkable circular design with whitewashed houses and a large ‘cantina’ selling excellent local wine, historic Alberobello a UNESCO heritage site and a unique and fascinating place to explore its thousands of trulli. Within 20 minutes is Martina Franca an elegant baroque town, ‘Cisternino famous for its gastronomy, and hilltop Ostuni known as the ‘White City’ as it glows day and night. Nearby is Castellana Grotte famed as the most spectacular limestone caves in Italy, the archaeological ruins of Egnazia, a Graeco-Messapian town and seaport, and a Zoo Safari Park, ideal family fun. A quick 10 minutes takes you to a selection of sandy beaches/coves and 5 minutes to the village bars, restaurants & shop.
