Why Tony Colucci chose Ostuni

Villa Iolanda is an oasis of tranquillity . Totally private , yet only a mile or so away from the beautiful city centre. Far reaching views from the totally secluded roof terrace and your mind will just switch off and take you to another planet.

Lovely Villa in rural and quiet location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 2 weeks in Villa Iolanda - thank you! The Villa is beautiful, spacious, well equipped and ideal for a family or group. The pool is massive which the kids loved! We even made our own pizzas using the pizza oven! You definitely need a car as advertised as very rural. Ostuni old town is lovely (very busy in August but still great place to visit). 3 good supermarkets within 15 minutes to stock up on essentials. Overall a great villa and Tony and Colleen very helpful. Many thanks!

Wonderful villa and a wonderful holiday.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Puglia and it was wonderful. Booking was easy, Tony answered all our questions very promptly. On arrival, Colleen was very welcoming and the welcome pack was also great, full of delicious goodies. We spent a blissful two weeks, in and around the pool, on the huge shady terrace and on the roof terrace. Warm sea about 20 minutes away and the most fantastic towns to visit all around. Ostuni just a few minutes drive, was not an ideal road to walk there but was great to go in in the evening and join everyone eating ice cream, listening to music and wandering around the old town. Inside the villa the air conditioning was a bonus and the bedrooms were spacious with very comfy beds. The kitchen space was basic but with a barbecue and pizza oven outside and excellent restaurants all around this was not a problem. We have had the most wonderful holiday, would certainly return without hesitation.

A very relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We’ve just returned from a very relaxing two weeks holiday at Villa Iolanda.

Tony was very helpful with our booking and when we got to Italy Colleen was friendly and approachable making sure that we had everything that we needed. The Welcome Pack of supplies was indeed very welcome as it meant that we didn’t have to dash out to find a supermarket as soon as we arrived. The mid-week clean and end of stay clean were also very much appreciated. The villa had everything that we needed and included air-conditioning and Internet access, which with three teenage boys was a very big bonus! The wide veranda provided shade from the constant sunshine and was a great place to relax and read. Having our own large pool was wonderful for taking a dip and cooling down.

Close to Ostuni, it was the perfect location to explore the beautiful towns and beaches of Puglia. We visited several of the nearby towns and even managed a day trip by train to Lecce, known as the ‘Florence of the South’. We enjoyed many good cups of coffee, glasses of Aperol Spritz and lots of great food.

Fabulous holiday

  • 5 of 5

Just back from our week long stay at the Villa Yolanda and have to say what a great time we have had. A week definitely was not long enough. A beautiful location, spacious, well-equipped villa with a lovely pool. The owner, Tony and his staff in Italy could not have been more helpful - from the welcome pack to recommendations of where to eat! Ostuni is a beautiful town, well suited for families who don't want a tourist trap but need enough to keep the teenagers happy - very pretty, as are the surrounding villages. Will def be back

A great Puglian home

  • 5 of 5

Villa Iolanda is a modern, spacious villa within easy reach of the town of Ostuni and the Adriatic Coast. The pool is excellent and the area immediately surrounding the pool is spacious, perfect for children to play in. There is plenty of shade as well as a roof terrace with magnificent views out to the sea and the surrounding countryside. The villa itself is very well appointed with all some nice additional touches such as Internet access. This is a great villa in every respect and thoroughly recommended

A Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

The owner is very friendly and helpful and the villa is lovely - lots of natural stone throughout and it is tastefully furnished and very well equipped. Everything was very clean (including the sun lounger cushions) and the villa is nice and private. Ostuni is slightly too far away to walk but there are two restaurants within walking distance of the house.

Our children loved the large pool!
