Top-hole Tra-Cey!

  • 5 of 5

It ticked all the boxes and more. We were a family party of eight adults and six children celebrating the two seniors' 50th wedding anniversary.

The Villa was superbly appointed and nothing was found wanting. Originally advertised as sleeping only 13, another mattress with pillows and sheets was provided to satisfy our total complement of 14 and easily accommodated as appropriate in one of the large bedrooms. Our group of 14 comprised: First family - the parents/grandparents (2); Second family - two parents one child aged 6; Third family - two parents and two children aged 9 and 7; Fourth family- two

parents and three children 11, 10 and 8. All appeared comfortably separated and at no time were we tripping over each other.

There was plenty of seating for everyone in the villa, in the veranda, the sun beds round the swimming pool and in the covered eating area outside.

The weather temperature varied between 29 degrees and 26 degrees and we had two thunderstorms. The highlight of the holiday was undoubtedly the swimming pool especially for the children who had great fun with the armchair and lilo floats and the underwater water jet against which they could improve their swimming strength (the never ending pool). Another highlight was to have a traditional Italian meal provided by a local lady, Lucrezia. Delicious! Another highlight was to use our skills with the pizza oven in the outside cooking area adjacent the outside covered eating area which adequately accommodated our 14.

Villa Tra-Cey lies in between Martina Franca and Locorotondo and is about a one hour drive from Brindisi or Bari airports. Because it is off the beaten track, Jackie Lear, the Puglia Holidays Rental representative, gave us sat-nav and clear instructions to rendezvous at the local Simone petrol station and Itria Caffe before the final couple of kilometres. She provided us with excellent customer service. Each morning we collected scrumptious croissants from the cafe.

The property was beautifully clean on arrival and appeared well maintained. It was also very secure with electronic gates. The £750 damage cover was promptly returned despite our accidentally breaking two tumblers and a wine glass. The large amount is understandable for the equipment at risk: there is a full size snooker table with green baize in the games room in the basement and a very large TV with electronic games equipment. We have no hesitation in highly recommending Villa Tra-Cey.

Owner's Response: Doug Thank you so much for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay at Villa Tracey. It is always a pleasure to help our guests get the most from their stay in Puglia, especially when it comes to restaurants and places to visit off the beaten track. A note to readers, the full size snooker table that Doug mentions, is actually a pool table.

This luxury villa in the heart of the Valle d'Itria equidistant between the beautiful hilltop towns of Locorotondo and Martina Franca, both just a short drive away. With fabulous views of the countryside, which is dotted with traditional trulli, this is an ideal location to immerse yourself in calm and tranquil surroundings.

N E W F O R 2 0 1 3 - Pool satety fencing.

The UNESCO site of Alberobello, the capital of trulli, is just a short drive away as is Ostuni, known as the 'White City'. Further afield, approximately 90 minutes away, are Lecce, the Florence of the South and Matera, another UNESCO site famous for the cave like dwellings and that were inhabited until until the 1960s when the government was shamed into rehousing the inhabitants. Today some have been turned into boutique hotels. Due to the close proximity of the Adriatic, there are lots of beaches close by or a little further westwards you can soak up the sun along the white sandy beaches of the Ionian sea.

There are no shortages of shops, restaurants, beaches.

Golf: The San Domenico Golf course, in the nearby town of Savelletri, is bordered by the Adriatic Sea, olive groves and cultivated fields creating a challenging 18 hole par 72 golf course. Less challenging is the Coccare Golf Club a small par 27 course in the grounds of Masseria Torre Maizza, a five star hotel; it also has a driving range.
