About the Owner
Hello my name is Melanie and I work with Luigi. We both live in Puglia Italy. Luigi has lived in Puglia all his life and has many years experience in the rental market. I moved from England 9 years ago, after working in the Finance Industry. After making the decision to move with my husband (Nigel) to Puglia Italy, and start a new life living la dolce vita. We own a number of properties that are used for the rental market. Luigi and I started working together a few years ago, after being friends for ever 10 years. We managed our own property rentals, and one night we were discussing together how owners kept asking us to manage their properties. After much discussion we finally agreed to join together our passion for the Italian life and channel this into helping others understand why Puglia is the place to stay with our 'hand picked villas'.
Having that personal experience of what holidaymakers were looking for, our working relationship was founded on trust, integrity, and honesty.
Our knowledge of Puglia, its restaurants and beaches , means that we both have first hand experience of the area. Also all our villas, are managed personally by us to ensure the traveller gets exactly what they have asked for.
The properties we manage are luxury villas, and the owners are professional people who have put their trust in our team to deliver to you the customer, a first class customer service. We take pride in the fact that we know the owners personally, and we will manage your stay in one of our villas, as if it was our own.
From the Owner
“This Trulli has many original features - Olive press which was used 100's of years ago to press the hand picked olives. A sewing machine, which is now used as a coffee table. The snug, is inviting and warm, with barelled roof. The location is special, as it is within walking distance of the beautiful City of Locorotondo. This City is known for its wines and for its circular structure. which is now a historical centre, from which derives its name, which means 'Round Place'. It is deep in the Itria Valley dotted with white prehistoric roundhouses called trulli. The houses are topped with unusual pitched roofs called 'cummerse' a feature typical of the historical centre. Trulli Carolina has 6 conicle roofs, each topped with a different stone symbol.”
