About Louisa Hudson

Retired special needs teacher , love to paint, love the sunshine, food and friendly people. My mother was born in Carovigno and I fell in love with the place after family holidays as a child. I worked hard to renovate the property and guests have really enjoyed their stay. I now spend more time in Italy developing my lovely garden , producing wine, olive oil , jams and limoncello which are for sale. I also enjoy painting the local scenery.

I provide a little welcome pack for all guests of a few essentials which are much appreciated especially for late arrivals.

Louisa Hudson purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Louisa Hudson chose Carovigno

I fell in love with the house, beautiful garden and location. It has fantastic sea views! The house which I have worked hard on to renovate, sits in the middle of an acre of lovely garden with lots of different fruits, olives and a small vineyard. Whilst it is very private and rural , its only 5 minutes drive to the beach and 5 minutes to the town of Carovigno. So the house has the peace of the countryside but is not remote.

The rental part of the house is a flat topped trullo (Saraceno). Its a haven from the hustle and bustle of life with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The house is at the top of a private drive and has a security system. The house has everything you need for your stay. There is a 5 mt circular above ground pool in the summer months and convenient outdoor shower.

What makes this cottage unique

The trullo is ideal for a couple having one double bedroom. There is also a sofa bed in the living area which would be fine for an adult or 2 children. It has a country cottage feel in a beautiful location. New 5 metre above ground pool to cool off in and get some exercise. newly installed Wifi. Wander around the garden in the mornings and pick figs, plums and grapes and lots of other fruits. The house is on a hill so there is a lovely healthy sea breeze, many houses in the interior of the countryside can be very hot, but Bella Terra has a fresh magical atmosphere.

Its very easy to find as its near a very tasteful 4 star hotel called Corte di Fero which has a big sign on the main road to Carovigno. Turn at the sign and the house is down the lane. The hotel is lovely , has a large swimming pool and is only a few minutes walk from my house. The hotel is not visible from the house.

Best 50th Birthday present for my wife

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Louisa, can only be described as a close friend you haven't met yet!

Her trulli is fantastic: clean, quiet, well appointed,and far enough away from Carovigno to be secluded, but close enough to experience the wonderful Piazza, Castle and La Loggia restaurant, which was recommended by Louisa.

She is attentive to your needs, but affords you space to do your own thing. Approachable and very knowledgeable she is a perfect host.

The trulli is close to Carovigno train station where you can get to Lecce, Monopoli, Polignarno a Mare and Bari very easily.

Without any reservations my wife and I would recommend this as a perfect couples holiday for all tastes and would recommend a visit to Specchiola and the Lido Tiziana for a great beach day, then experience Santa Sabina or Carovigno Piazza in the evening, however, leave it past 8 o'clock and car parking is not easy to find.

We are already planning our return visit for next year, and as a note, you can now fly to Brindisi from Manchester

What a wonderful place! A slightly quirky perfectly resourced trulli. everything you could need. Set in olive groves, fruit trees and vine yards, off the beaten track so peaceful. The pool is wonderful a great place to cool off and relax set in the splendid gardens. Great location for transport links set between two towns to access shopping and eating out. We will be back its a great tonic!

Spring in Puglia

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay in trullo Bella Terra. It is a perfect location, quiet, full privacy and surrounded by a wonderfull garden with many places to sit and relax in sun or shadow. The trullo is ideal for two. Although not luxurious we had everything we needed.

It's a perfect base for visiting the local markets and wonderfull medieval towns like Lecce, Ostuni, Alberto Bello and Locorotondo. Several times we visited a good fish restaurant in S. Sabrina at the seaside and on Sunday we enjoyed the local family traditions.

Louisa, you made us feel very welcome. You gave us all information we needed. I (Dutch) could practice my Italian with your kind relatives the last evening when you invited us for dinner.

Thank you very much Louisa. We enjoyed our stay in your trulli.

Care and independence in wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Louisa has a beautiful property and wonderful way of caring for you but not getting in your way. We loved our stay in her spring garden and well-appointed apartment. Louisa came to the local town to show us how to get to her home and gave us great ideas for travel and food.

Her place is situated in a great location for visiting many parts of Southern Italy and we did a range of car trips, resting in the garden, cooking fresh food and dining out - once with Louisa, and once in her home with family.

Thank you so very much Louisa for your care, fun attitude and interesting conversations.

Wonderful accomodation- authentic Italy

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Louisa's trullo in the real Italy as part of a self- devised 3 week tour of the country. The accommodation was clean and had everything we needed. It was lovely to be able to eat outside in the natural surroundings of the fig and olive trees. As previous reviews have mentioned the trullo is in a location which has a secluded feel whilst being very close to Carovigno, where there is a lovely cocktail bar in the main square, and Santa Sabina where there is a lovely beach. A car is essential for this stay, although this is true of the region generally. There are nice restaurants nearby and plenty of places to visit on days out- Ostuni, Alberobello, Grotte Di Castellana, Gallipoli and Lecce included.

Louisa is a fantastic host and we can't wait to return!
