About the property

Villa near Carovigno, Brindisi, Puglia, Italy - Peaceful And Secluded Location In The Countryside

This delightful villa is located in the heart of Puglia’s country-side. With no neighbouring villas and totally surrounded by olive groves and farm land, Villa Capperi offers total seclusion and serenity. Accessed by a pine fringed drive and surrounded by dry stone walls. The villa is set in over three acres of land with olive trees and many varieties of fruit trees. Whilst the villa is tucked away in the Puglian countryside in an extremely tranquil location, getting there is simple as it is easily accessed via a quiet little country lane. Located just over 3km’s from Puglia’s finest beach and nature reserve at Torre Guaceto, the villa is perfectly situated for lovers of sun and sand. The fine old town of Carovigno with its many bars and restaurants, castle and old town is just 5km away. During 2012/13 the owners carried out an upgrade programme to the Villa and its grounds (including new Air Conditioning, new Kitchen equipment, free Wi-Fi etc). The owners also completely modernised both bathrooms for the 2015 season. For the 2017 season the owners updated the kitchen and added further cupboard space, worktops and a full size dishwasher.

Notes on accommodation: The Villa has a three acre estate which is surrounded by a traditional Puglian dry stone wall. The villa also has a monitored security system. Villa Capperi has a very large roof terrace (200sqm) with stunning views across the estate. Entrance to the roof terrace is via a gated stairway; however, we recommend that children should not be unaccopanied if on the roof. Air-conditioning is available at no extra cost provided usage is not excessive. A certified electricity meter measures units consumed within the villa so that guests can keep a track of usage. Like all air-conditioning, it requires windows and doors to be closed to work properly and minimise electricity consumption. However, the villa is naturally cool if you observe the Italian custom of closing the shutters when the sun is at its hottest. Sorry, no pets. This is a non-smoking villa. Outside: Large terraces surround the villa with an extensive main marble-floored veranda at the front. The veranda leads onto the large private swimming pool (12m x 4.5m) which is surrounded by a small dry stone wall. The Villa has several outdoor tables including a king-size one and chairs, barbecue, sunbeds, poolside chairs etc. The pool is of traditional design with a deep end and shallow end that features Roman Steps. The pool is therefore suitable for swimming lengths as well as relaxing with the whole family and we recommend that children are accompanied at all times.Traditional Puglian dry stone walls enclose the three acre estate and the villa's immediate surroundings are fenced in the local style with a gate providing guests access to the land and its many fruit trees. Utility Room: There is a washing machine provided for guests' use in the utility room. Towels and linen for the villa are included (but not beach or pool towels). Linen and towels are included and changed weekly. Pool maintenance is at least once per week. Villa cleaned weekly. Other: The lounge has a DVD player connected to a widescreen TV (we do not have Sky or live TV). There is a large selection of DVDs for grown ups and children to watch. The Wi-Fi hub is located in the lounge.

Another Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to this lovely Villa for several years, we seem to enjoy it a bit more every visit.The property is very well maintained & every time we return it just seems to get better with new kitchens & bathrooms! It is very well situated , lovely & quiet but not too far away from great places to visit, Ostuni is currently one of our favourites, with its beautiful town square & so many places to choose from to eat.

Already looking forward to next years visit!!

Wonderful holiday, wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

We had another wonderful holiday at Villa Capperi. As before we mainly chilled around the pool and did a couple of days out (Locorotondo and Cisternino both well worth a look). Since we last stayed, the kitchen has been neatly updated (new dishwasher, microwave etc). Weather in September was really good and all in all we had a great time.

Beautiful villa with a lovely, large and clean pool all set in a tranquil yet accessible location

  • 5 of 5

It is fair to say that we have had one of our most memorable holidays as a family. Puglia is a beautiful and unspoilt region with plenty of places to visit together with some lovely beaches. Would strongly recommend visiting Locorotondo, Martina Franca, Ostuni and especially Alberobello. The historic centres of these hilltop towns are stunning.

Chris and Marion, the owners, and Antonio, their representative in Italy, could not have been more helpful or attentive. The villa was the perfect size for us (2 adults and one child aged 9), very clean and well equipped. The pool was superb and very welcome in the heat. Hardly any mosquitoes either! Note for families - unless you visit some of the more popular towns, most restaurants do not open at lunchtime and only open in the evening at 8pm. This meant we cooked more in the villa than anticipated but it certainly didn't spoil our our holiday. The bbq was an added bonus as was the money we took home with us!

All in all we had a fantastic holiday and didn't want to leave.

Thank you very much Chris, Marion and Antonio!

Italian Paradise

  • 5 of 5

If you enjoy peace and quiet with a major bit of sunshine thrown in, then this is the place for you.

A few minutes drive from San Vito dei Normanii, surrounded by olive groves and fruit trees it is the perfect place relax, which is exactly what we did for the week.

The villa is fitted out with everything you may need to do as much or as little as you want.

A very difficult place to leave after a fabulous holiday.

Will certainly make every effort to come back next year.

We are 3 kms from the beach at the little seaside town of Lido Specchiolla and approximately 5 mins (4 kms) from Puglia's finest beach located in the nature reserve in Torre Gauceto.

To the west the Med (Ionian sea) and the seaside towns located along the Taranto to Gallipoli coastline is only 30-40 mins drive.

As we do not tend to have any "package" holidays in Puglia, beaches near the villa mainly attract Italian families in the summer.


We are an easy 20 minute drive from Brindisi airport (BA, Ryanair, Alitalia & Easyjet from April 2015) and a straightforward 75 mins from Bari airport (BA, EasyJet and Ryanair, etc). Car hire is essential due to the Villa's secluded location. In addition, there are frequent inexpensive flights from all over Europe that go to Naples. The journey from Naples (multiple airlines) to Puglia is mainly motorway and is a comfortable 3.5 hours. Flights to Puglia fill up quickly so early booking is advisable.


The Villa is 3km from the nearest beach and less than 4km from the nature reserve and extensive golden sands at Torre Gauceto. The historic old town of Ostuni is 15 mins drive away. We are 5km from both the town of Carovigno with its attractive old town and the lively resort and beach of Santa Sabina. Lecce with its famous Baroque architecture is a short drive away as are most of the region's other towns and places of interest (Alberobello, Monopoli, Brindisi, Locorotondo, Martina Franca, etc)

Further Details:

Whilst the villa is tucked away in the Puglian countryside in an extremely tranquil location, getting there is simple as it is easily accessed via a quiet little country lane.

The villa is located 4km’s from Puglia’s finest beach and nature reserve at Torre Guaceto and is perfectly situated for lovers of sun and sand. The fine old town of Carovigno with its many bars and restaurants, castle and old town is just 5km away as is San Vito Dei Normanni.

We are 4km from the large supermarket on the outskirts of San Vito. Carovigno has beautiful churches, a castle and a nearby underground grotto at Belvedere. Carovigno is well known throughout Puglia for its cuisine and each restaurant is proud of its specialities featuring local produce such as olives, tomatoes, cheese and seafood and fish. You won't need to look further than house wines which are superb value. Both San Vito and Carovigno are full of little shops (deli's, greengrocers, bakers, fishmongers, butchers, small bars etc) as well as a choice of supermarkets.

There have recently been several new excellent restaurants opened in Carovigno. Check out the fantastic reviews on TripAdvisor. The lively coastal resort of Santa Sabina with its superb restaurants and pizzerias is just 10 minutes drive away and a favourite destination for Villa Capperi's guests. Even nearer is the seaside town of Specchiolla (just a few minutes drive away) which now hosts some good restaurants along the sea front.
