Notably, it is just great to relax with a glass of wine.

Our cosy villa is painted white inside, tiled floors throughout, which keeps it cool light and airy. Air conditioning. fitted in the bedrooms new for 2016

About the Owner

We visited Puglia several times before buying this property ,the clear blue sea with its soft sandy beaches, rocky coves and the hillsides with their spectacular views over the Adriatic is what we fell in love with .

We are a English born family, but my father was Italian, my family still live in the beautiful town of Lecce, the ‘Florence of the south’.

We decided to name our dream villa after my original family name "Mazzeo" . We love that this wonderful area "Puglia", for it still retains its real simplicity, yet provides high standards of restaurants, shops and bars. We particularly love the people of this area, who cannot do enough for you and are so welcoming and pleasant.

Wonderful holiday in the olive groves in beautiful Puglia, just a short drive from historic Ostuni.

  • 5 of 5

This was a dream of a holiday Villa Mazzeo was delightful, well equipped, spotlessly clean and so peaceful. It is set in olive groves with a large outdoor living space including a roof terrace , we spent evenings on this terrace looking at the stars , early mornings were also a favourite while eating figs and pomegranate picked from the tress in the garden.

Near by Ostuni is magical especially at night with many great restaurants and outside bean bag cocktail bars. We visited several local beaches all so lovely it's difficult to choose a favourite. There is so much to see and do with a short drive of the peace if the villa we ran out out time to visit all we wanted . We will definitely be returning .

Relaxing holiday in Puglia

  • 4 of 5

We were met in Ostuni and guided to the villa by local representatives who were very helpful ,giving us all the information we needed about the villa and the surroundings. The villa is beautiful with new fittings throughout and was spotlessly clean. The setting is amazing with 2 beautiful terraces and a roof terrace for relaxing . The out door pizza oven and barbecue making mealtimes a rea pleasure. Gina was very helpful both before our trip and by email during the visit. The villa is in a secluded location but it is easy to get by car to Ostuni which is beautiful and within 30 minutes you can be on a beautiful beach.a wonderful relaxing place to stay

"great really good food"

From the Owner

We particularly love the outdoor living at Villa Mazzeo, with its 3 patios, specially the roof terrace taking in the lovely sweeping views over the olive groves, "Bellisino". Villa Mazzeo is surrounded by 1 acre of enclosed garden with furit trees, olive trees and stunning mediterranean plants to the front as you drive up. We fell in love with this beautiful hidden villa due to its breathtaking views arcross the olive groves and peaceful location, but still with its easy acess to have breakfast in a Baroque city, lunch in a restaurant built inside caves and enjoy dinner in a cobbled white village in the hills. We wanted to find a piece of heaven to rest, recharge and this was just prefect for us and our family.

In this lovely unspoilt area of puglia there is a zoo/water park located near Fasano.Great saturday markets in ostuni/Martina Franca which we have left instrunctions at the villa where they are . Local festivals [ procession of Saint Oronzo the protector of the city] which we had the pleasure to attend in Ostuni [ 26th August] ,which was an truly amazing experience. The white city is lined with local stalls, horses and riders have mantillas and costumes in gold and silver embroidery it was the most incredible experience . Be aware though you will need to get there early late afternoon we recommend to get a parking space.[Again we have left full handover in our guest folder around parking and where you can park]. Aberobello [ UNESCO site] is also a real magical place with its Trulli and it is a must to visit. Bicyle hire is also available locally along with boat tours. We also hired a boat from Monopoli [ 1 hour drive] which our family loved the snorkelling which was amazing along with the stunning Basilica Cattedrale Maria Santissima della Madiaand is a must, the church is incredible inside. The gorgeous beaches beaches near are beautiful with their clear blue waters, secluded coves and sandy bays, which are there to be discovered.We love Torre Pozzella with its enchanting beauty and hidden coves. Other beaches in the area are Torre Canne, Torre Guaceto,Villanova,Quarto di Monte, Marina di Ostuni,

Another great and truly amazing experience when you go into the Ostuni in the eveing for drinks is the Riccardo Caffe can be found by walking through tiny stone alley ways, up and down steps past beautiful white washed Italian homes. It looked beautiful, bright blue bean bags with candles lit everywhere from the outside and magical inside. The cocktails where delicious. Definalty a drinking spot to visit. Relaxing, beautiful, something very special.

From the Owner

We fell in love with this Villa as soon as we saw it, due to its stunning rural location. As we drove down this winding little lane and turned the corner to see this lovely white washed villa sitting amongst the olive groves .The peaceful surroundings were so calming and relaxing . It was perfectly located with its huge sundrenched back patio and roof terrace views.
