Guestbook comments from the owner

On arrival we were greeted by an impressive welcome pack and the villa had everything we needed and more. The kitchen had plenty of crockery and utensils which were ideal for all the outdoor dining we did. The Pizza Oven was fabulous and we thoroughly enjoyed making the pizza's from scratch with our two children. We stayed for one week at Villa Gemelli and made our own pizza's on 3 evenings, had a BBQ on 2 occasions and dined out in the wonderful White City twice. Dining at the villa was truly a family affair and no-one was left slaving away over the cooker on their own as the outdoor dining facilities meant that you could cook and still be with the family. After a wonderful meal we'd head across the villa grounds to the cocktail bar where we would see out our evening under the stars and the lights of the pool – a great way to spend an evening !

The villa is set in large grounds in a peaceful location yet only 5 mins drive from the wonderful town of Ostuni. The large swimming pool was great for the kids, particularly the diving board which was a real novelty, and the quality of the loungers was as good as it gets.

We enjoyed our trips to the White City with it's quaint winding streets, the array of bars and restaurants as well as some wonderful shops. We travelled to Lecce and had a great day out and visited the local beaches as recommended by Steve & Jackie.

A thoroughly great week was had by all !

Our family spent two very relaxing weeks at Villa Gemelli. The whole experience from initial booking right the way through to the end of our stay was brilliant, firstly with Steve and then his excellent team in Ostuni. The villa itself was well equipped and comfortable, but the outside space made the holiday. The pool, Steve's bar and grounds are fabulous. We also had great fun making our own pizza in the oven. A wonderful place that we would highly recommend.

From the Owner

We picked the location as we wanted somewhere peaceful and tranquil that we could go and chill out, to get away from our very busy life in the UK. We find this each time we stay at the villa but also have the convenience of only being a 5 minute drive from Ostuni and a 20 minute drive from a wide range of beaches. Ostuni, known as the White City, has a vast range of restaurants, bars and shops and in our opinion is still 'real' Italy. The area is still relatively unspoilt by tourism, unlike Northern Italian cities.

Special interest holidays:

Both walking and cycling tours are available locally, as are traditional Puglian cookery classes.


Villa Gemelli is located near to many beaches, some with bars and facilities, others with nothing but warm sea and sand. The nearest beach is a 15-20 min drive. It is important to understand that this side of Italy’s coast line offers both small coves and bays as well as long stretches of beach.


The two nearest airports are Brindisi, a 30 minute drive and Bari, a 75 min drive. We would recommend hiring a car for your stay as the nearest town, Ostuni, is only 3kms away but is a good 60 min walk.


The stunning town of Ostuni is 3kms away and sits like a white beacon on 3 hills east of Martina Franca. The seemingly disordered tangle of narrow cobblestone streets recalls a North African Arab medina, an ideal place to get agreeably lost. There are a plethora of restaurants and bars just off the Piazza della Liberta, heading upwards towards the Sombre brown stone of the 15th century Gothic Cathedral.

Further Details:

Puglia or Apullia as it is sometimes known, is the heel of Italy's boot and is bordered by two seas, the Adriatic to the East and the Ionian to the South. Italy's deep south is little known to foreign visitors but those that do visit are regarded with an unforgettable experience. Uplifting natural beauty and a near tropical sea combine with the strange conical-roofed stone houses, the Trulli, unique to Puglia. The region is a food and wine-lover's paradise, no matter how hard you try; it is difficult to eat badly. A proportion of Italy's fish is caught off the Puglian coast and locally grown fruit and vegetables can be found on many a street corner. In addition Puglia has 23 D.O.C. wine regions, the best know being Salice Salentino. Puglia is something authentic and extremely Italian. It is a land of an unbelievable variety of colours. Here you will find rich red earth, tall dark green pine forests, silvery green olive groves and bright green scattered vineyards; glowing white towns, grey natural Baroque churches and ancient castles and buildings. The average daytime temperatures in July/August are about 32 degrees and a little less in June and September. With two seas around three sides of the area, the air does not feel too oppressive during the summer months. With sunshine for most of the year and olive groves which stretch along a beautiful coastline, it boasts one of the cleanest seas in Europe. Italians have long made it their favoured holiday destination and now with more cheap flights from the U.K. it is rapidly becoming a hot destination for gourmet travellers who are looking for something different to the better known holiday destinations. Visit oil and wine making Fattorias, see beautiful Greco-Roman cities and mysterious ancient Trulli. Enjoy wonderful local cuisine and rich strong wines which are becoming known throughout Europe.
