Our great holiday
About the Owner
We moved here from England in 2006 fully restoring our 17th century farmhouse, building a large pool & modern villa.
An orchard was planted to provide us with a large variety of fresh fruits. Almonds, citrus, cherries, figs, plums, pomegranates & prickly pears. Made into homemade preserves etc. The gardens are always being extended.
In 2013 an outdoor pizza oven.
We enjoy sharing our knowledge of this beautiful area with guests over an amazing breakfast or during a visit to one of the many year round festivals.
To help you enjoy your holiday to the full we are able to offer information on all kinds of activities. For a lot more information including our life in Puglia article and the story of our first Olive harvest and oil production in Italia Magazine. Visit our website with

Villa Due Torri
We have just returned from a wonderful week at the Villa, it is fitted out to a very high standard and has everything you could need. It is in a fabulous location making a great base from which to see the area. Doug and Elizabeth made us feel really welcome and were full of information that meant we were able to get the most of of our stay.
The pool area and gardens were stunning and everyone really enjoyed the pizza making allowing us to try some innovative toppings (nutella and haribo). We would not hesitate to recommend this property and location.
From the Owner
“We came across this beautiful unspoilt area of Puglia while on holiday in November 2002. Returning at times throughout the year to explore fully. Finding that the Monopoli countryside had so much to offer. The location was very important to us as we like a countryside setting, stunning views of the land and sea, beautiful local beaches and towns. Here we have found all these things, lovely green countryside with anceint olive trees, beautiful gently sloping farm land with trees, wild flowers and wildlife all year round. We are within easy reach of many local towns, several airports, excellent train services from Monopoli and above all an all year round destination with plenty to do.”
