About Isabella Oztasciyan Bernardini

I am half Armenian and half Greek.Professor of Modern Greek Language and Litterature I love travelling, visual arts and learning languages. I speak Greek, Italian, English, French,Turkish.

Spent most of my youth and keep my best memories in this property. While my family and I work restlessly to improve them and make sure that they are as comfortable as possible for our guests, we really wish that you will enjoy them and relax as much as you need during your holiday in the South of Italy.

Our beautiful Region is still unspoiled and I invite you to discover it as soon as you can!

Isabella Oztasciyan Bernardini purchased this villa in 1971

Why Isabella Oztasciyan Bernardini chose Gagliano del Capo

My parents built the villa in the seventies, just because they fell in love with this area. The villa is an example of eco-architecture, where the building is one thing with the environment. The villa is built "in pietra viva" following the antique local tradition. It is less than 2 km away from the first village and it is surrounded by a big garden. No neighbours, no noise, but just the stars and the sea.

What makes this villa unique

This villa for ten people is very convenient for two families or a for a group of friends.

It is organised in two apartments and this makes it particularly suitable for two families.

Fantastic for children: a lot of space for playing outside.

Here is a lot of space! Big terraces, swimming pool, sunbeds and barbecue for enjoy eating outside on the terrace.

Fast WI FI inside and outside of the villa

Privacy and silence are luxuries nowadays. In our villa you will have both of them.

From the villa you can see the mountains of Albania and the two Greek islands north of the island of Corfu, Othoni and Erichousa.

The panoramic view is just beautiful and in the area you will find both rocks and sandy beaches.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Any time I'm dreaming, I have a dream in which there is a very nice House at the sea in Southern Italy :-), much sun, good books and so on. I thank you again for giving this house to our family in summer! It was great!

Tout était parfait

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour de rêve dans cette villa dont la vue est tout simplement à couper le souffle. Tina est une vraie fée du logis, et l'on est accueilli avec chaleur. Rien ne manque, les lits sont excellents, la propreté impeccable, la cuisine est bien équipée. La disposition des lieux est idéale pour un groupe de deux familles, ou plusieurs générations, tous peuvent vivre ensemble avec des horaires décalés. Le village à proximité est très agréable et vivant, du soir au matin....

Special interest holidays:

This is the perfect villa for a sunny family vacation, or for a group of friends that would like to relax on the beach, eat good genuine products like fresh fish and vegetables.

If you like going to the beach, diving, snorkeling, water skiing, you are in the right place. You can also rent a boat for a day or join boat tours. After the sunset, you will enjoy visiting villages and enjoy local cuisine and regional wine. Don't miss the festivals in the region! Everyday you will have a different festival with people eating on the street and dancing in the main square of the village.

Having said that, since we have the swimming pool, many families hardly left the villa and just stayed on the pool


The villa is on the seaside, but due to the high cliff, it does not have direct access to the sea. The closer access is a bay at 1km from the villa, called Il Ciolo, with rocks. At 3km you can rent a boat at the port, and at 4km you can find the longest beach of white sand of the region.


Car hire is essential. You can fly to Brindisi (which is a Ryanair hub, while 'classic' airlines fly there via Milan or Rome) and rent car at the airport. You will need about one hour and a half to get to the villa from Brindisi.

Should you land in Bari, my recommendation is to enjoy the beauties on the way. You may wish to stop in Ostuni, beautiful villa mid-way, all white old houses on a hill


1km from the first village Gagliano del Capo, good for shopping.

3km from Santa Maria di Leuca, with beach, boat rentals, sea food restaurants.

1km from the nearest access to the sea, 'la baia del Ciolo', a bay with rocks.

I will send you more useful information on local activities via email.

Further Details:

Local shop: on the way to Gagliano, which is a village only 1 km far, you will find a good bakery shop and a grocery

The bank is the main square of Gagliano, which also offer in the main square free internet access

Gagliano has a farmacy and a full big hospital
