Overview

About the property

Villa in San Vito dei Normannni - Peaceful Location, Ideal setting for families or couples

Villa Poggio is superbly situated 1km outside the town of San Vito dei Normanni in a small residential village. The villa boasts a large private swimming pool and completely enclosed private gardens with a large variety of fruit trees. You will enjoy the rural tranquillity of the villa whilst being close to all the local amenities such as cafes, bars, shops, supermarkets and restaurants. San Vito dei Normanni is a town of just over 20,000 inhabitants located in Puglia, the heel of Italy's boot, and is just 5 minutes away from the Adriatic Coast and its many beaches. The town is a perfect location to relax and experience real Italy, but is also in an ideal location should you wish to discover more of this beautiful region. The villa is within easy reach of several airports (Brindisi 15 mins, Bari 1 hour, Naples 3.5 hours).

About Angela and Steve

We purchased our property after visiting Puglia on a day trip to Italy and falling in love with the area. Initially it was to be our holiday home for retirement. However, as a former contracts manager in construction and police officer both very demanding roles, we decided to make a life change and move here. We haven't looked back since and hope you will love Puglia as much as we do.

Angela and Steve purchased this villa in 2005

Why Angela and Steve chose Brindisi area

We pride ourselves on high standards of cleanliness and attention to detail. We have been living here for 9 years and have a good understanding of the language and events/places of interest to pass on to our guests. Although there aren't any bad wines, we can recommend the best ones to try and organise wine tours for you to sample the local wine before you buy.

The garden/pool area is very tranquil and maintained to a very clean high standard.

What makes this villa unique

We are on hand 24/7 should we be required and are happy to help with advice if required and restaurant bookings. However, we keep a low profile during your stay and the pool is solely for guests use.

Brilliant time..... We highly recommend a "Villa Poggio" holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at villa Poggio, (two adults, two teenage kids). The villa was spacious, great décor and

very clean, everything you require.

The outside area, provided a perfect size patio, large table and BBQ (of which we enjoyed very much). Villa Poggio is in good

size grounds, with a very large well kept swimming pool, in private tranquil surroundings, perfectly positioned

for the sunshine, giving us hours of fun.

Lots to see and do: Everything was very closely accessible. Many beautiful historic towns/cities to see (recommend

White city, Ostuni ) incredible views.

Various local large food shops, markets, beaches and an abundance of extremely good and well priced restaurants. We even

visited a local go kart track, a great time was had.

Thank you very much, Steve and Angela for being most gracious, helpful hosts... nothing seemed to much trouble, two

extremely lovely people. Your assistance definitely helped make our holiday a great one !!

Fantastic !

  • 5 of 5

Steve and Angela are superb hosts. Great communications and directions in advance and they were always available for recommendations and help.

Villa is excellent. Great layout and everything works as it should. Very private with a wonderful garden full of fruit trees. Pool is brilliant - big enough for swimming as well as having fun.

Location is good too - lots of things to do only a short drive away. It seems that every day there is a concert or a festival or cultural event nearby. Lots of music and fireworks. Good beaches are close by and the historical towns of Ostuni, Alberobello, Lecce and Brindisi are all within easy reach. Everything you might need (supermarkets, post office etc) is available in San Vito, only 5 minutes away.

We had a great holiday. Didn't want to leave and would love to return. Highly recommended +++

Lovely villa, great pool, good ameneties, secluded location

  • 5 of 5

Villa Poggio is in a secluded location surrounded by olive groves, but is within easy reach of the local town and its ameneties, and great local beaches, which are perfect for young kids, are only a 15 minute drive away.

We (family of four with 2 kids aged 10 & 7) thoroughly enjoyed our week. The villa and its grounds are lovely and the pool is great - the kids only left it to either eat, sleep or go to the beach! It has two bedrooms (both with aircon - vital during the sultry Italian evening heat) and is perfect for a family of four. The lovely owners Steve and Angela are also on hand to provide valuable local knowledge.

It also has good facilities - beach towels are provided, there's a tv, dvd and x-box console (for those who want to spend their holiday watching tv!) and a selection of books. There's a purpose-built barbecue, access to a modern washing machine and beach umbrellas and chairs to borrow if required.

You always take a chance when choosing a villa on the internet, never quite knowing what you've let yourself in for until you arrive. With this villa, however, we hit the jackpot! Our only regret is that we only spent a week there and not a fortnight! We'll certainly return.

Love villa Poggio and Ange and Steve

  • 5 of 5

This a lovely cosy villa with a great pool in a quiet location but within easy reach of shops and restaurants. Ange and Steve the owners could not have been more welcoming and helpful. They live on site but you would hardly know unless you wanted to. San Vito is a lovely town with a real Italian flavour. Nice beaches only a few minutes drive away. Stayed here several times now and will definitely be back.

Excellent accommodation in a fantastic area.

  • 5 of 5

I have never stayed in such well equipped accomodation and have no hesitation in recommending villa poggia. The pool particularly was amazing with a spectacular surround of succulents and cacti Our thanks to Angela and Steve for a superb holiday, helped by their local knowledge we were able to find some lovely beaches and restaurants. Daisy and Charlie added to the charm.

A wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to say anything original that hasn't already been said by the other reviewers! This villa is just brilliant and the pool is outstanding! Angela and Steve have done everything to ensure this villa has everything you could possibly need on holiday and more besides! Everything is immaculate and the pool area is a total haven of peace and beautiful planting. You really totally relax the minute you arrive. All the local restaurants recommended were very good as was the supermarket, just a few minutes away. We soon found our way around with the excellent map provided and Steve's directions for places a bit further afield. Santa Sabina was particularly lovely and very close by. It is great having their knowledge of the area at your fingertips, it really saves time and helps you filter out where you want to go. We were due to move on after a week but couldn't tear ourselves away so stayed on a bit longer as there was a small gap in their bookings which was a real bonus. As mentioned by others, Daisy and Charlie are real sweeties but absolutely no way intrusive, they just wag their tails a lot as you pass by! We had a wonderful time here, super accommodation, lots of sun and great food and wine.
