About Maura Watson

We are a young family of four who work hard but live life to the full. We love to spend our summers in the sun and our winters in the snow but living in the UK the reality is we spend most of the year in the rain! Growing up by the sea yet surrounded by beautiful countryside developed a lifelong passion for the freedom that gives you. In Puglia you will find just that - space and freedom. As a child I was lucky enough to spend some wonderful holidays abroad and came to love the combination of the relaxed, easy lifestyle in an open and welcoming environment. I have lasting memories of great food, sun-filled days and wonderful people. When we set about looking for a holiday home we were looking to create those same special memories for our own children that we had been lucky enough to experience. A place where the days are long and sun filled, where there is a perfect balance between relaxation and holiday activities but in an area that is still unspoilt and has maintained it's authenticity. Come and experience it and share in this unique italian magic.

Maura Watson purchased this villa in 2006

Why Maura Watson chose Brindisi area

If like us you enjoy the tranquility of open space combined with great food, fantastic wine and a relaxed and sun-filled lifestyle then book a holiday in our beautiful italian home. We would love the chance to share this very special yet relatively undiscovered part of Italy with you in the hope that you will love it as much as we do.
