About Debbie and Bob Lane

We are an English couple who have travelled extensively often working abroad. Before moving to Puglia we lived in Berkshire in Southern England in a small town. We lived a hectic life revolving mainly around work ..... no wonder we opted out of the rat race and retired early when the opportunity presented itself!

Debbie and Bob Lane purchased this villa in 2005

Why Debbie and Bob Lane chose Lindinuso

We had holidayed in Puglia in 1999 and returned in the Spring of 2005, renewing our love affair with Puglia, Having recently sold our business we made the major decision to sell up in the UK and retire early, looking for a complete change of lifestyle. We found it. From a frenetic working life to the warmth of the mezzo-giorno and the warmth and hospitality of the Southern Italians, Puglia provides us with the opportunity to take the time to enjoy our retirement.

What makes this villa unique

The location of Casa Mare makes it a perfect place to relax and enjoy Puglia. Sea views from the verandah and from the living room with the constant sound of the sea in the background are a reminder, if you need one, of how close the sea and beach are. Waking up to summer sunshine, the blue of the pool and the blue skies are a perfect way to start the day.

With two holiday seaside villages in walking distance we love to stroll to one or the other for a morning coffee or late afternoon aperitvi, picking up any shopping at the same time.

Eating out on the verandah or at the large shaded table in the garden somehow makes even the best food and wine taste even better.

Together with our fantastic events organiser, Ylenia, we can arrange almost any sort of activity or day trip, making sure you discover and understand the real Puglia. We've even hosted a wedding here at Casa Mare, and had several honeymooners choose Casa Mare as the place to be.

For families with young children the environment is perfect, a safe beach, a garden to play in and our cats to amuse them.

Whether you are families or extended family, groups of friends, or a couple looking for a romantic holiday, Casa Mare is a perfect location in Perfect Puglia.

This villa is amazing, great pool and many spacious areas! Great location to explore Puglia

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at the Villa which has a fantastic heated pool (like a warm bath) and many different areas to relax and socialise. Bob and Debbie were on hand whenever we needed help with things such as directions or restaurant recommendations or bookings, they have also mastered the art of being there to help but also not intrusive on your holiday at all. The villa provided a great location to explore Puglia including Otranto, Brindisi, Lecce and Gallipoli. The welcome basket on arrival was a great touch, especially with a late arrival from the airport. The villa itself is spacious and the kitchen provides a great area to cook and socialise with your group whilst the outdoor veranda allows for drinks in the evening. We couldn’t recommend this villa enough and would definitely stay again if we were to go to Puglia. Thanks Bob and Debbie for your hospitality and making this one of our best holidays to date!

Fantastic villa, fantastic hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Villa was what we wanted and exactly what you see in the picture. Not too far from Brindisi airport, steps from the beach. Being cat lovers we also loved that added value! 🐈?

Debby and Bob were very gracious, helpful and wonderful hosts. The welcome basket was a great and much appreciated touch. We had a wonderful stay.

Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

Casa Mare is a beautiful house and very comfortable. The pool is fantastic and there is lots of shade. Debs and Bob provided lots of small things to make our stay more comfortable such as an excellent guide to the local towns and restaurants which we used a lot and really helped us find some great places to eat. We also really appreciated the excellent welcome basket which included home made meatballs on the night we arrived. There are also 2 bikes; not flash or particularly fast but we loved cycling along the coast to the local village to buy bread and fresh food in the mornings. Puglia is a lovely place for a holiday with lots to see within a short distance but if you want to just stay at Casa Mare that would be excellent too and fantastic for families or couples

The villa is absolutely lovely. It is comfortable, very spacious and very well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the villa. It had everything we needed and more. It's set in a peaceful walled garden with lots of seating areas and a fantastic pool. A very relaxing place to stay.

Debbie and Bob are great hosts and were on hand whenever we needed advice or support. They provide a really generous welcome basket which was greatly appreciated.

Lovely villa, great facilities

  • 5 of 5

The villa met all of our expectations (from owners description and previous reviews). A lovely beachside location, a stone's throw from a secluded beach with crystal clear waters. The villa has a fabulous heated pool which meant that we could swim very comfortably in May. Inside, every room is spacious and extremely well equipped. The owners gave us a much appreciated welcome basket which included some lovely local produce. They were always around to give us any advice re restaurants, places to visit, local tips etc. A fabulous holiday for my families' celebration of my husbands 60th birthday.

Lovely villa with a large pool and close to beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely relaxing holiday at Casa Mare. We were made so welcome by Debbie and Bob and the huge welcome basket including a meal for the first evening was very generous. The villa is well equipped and extremely comfortable. The large pool area is ideal for lazy days in the sun but the beach is so close that you are spoilt for choice between the pool and the sea. The villa is ideally placed for visiting Otranto, Monopoli, Gallipoli, and Alberbello, all of which are beautiful and worth the drive. We enjoyed the daily visits from the Casa Mare cats. Thank you for a lovely holiday
