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 Brindisi area

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.

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!

Late summer in Puglia

  • 5 of 5

Booked a late summer holidayhere. Excellent communication from Louisa who owns this Trullo. She provided plenty of information and knowing our flight arrived later in the evening offered to provide a meal for us - what fantastic customer service, the food was excellent as well.

The trullo is along a lane and secluded enough for privacy but still close enough to the town of Carovigno. The trullo is ideal for 2 people and offers a good base for exploring Puglia - we liked the outside space and the roof terrace was superb for catching the sun and views.

Louisa is a fabulous hostess, although she lives next door, she was unobstrusive and on hand if we needed anything. She is fun and friendly and we enjoyed her company one evening as she shared her knowledge of the area with us. She has a lovely garden and we were able to eat wonderful late season grapes and figs directly from her garden. Added to that the outside dining area for al fresco meals and the peace and quiet, we had a wonderful week in the sunshine. We were her last guests of the year and it was a lovely time to explore outside the scorching summer heat. We particularly liked Ostuni which was very pretty with good restaurants and had a lovely feel to it of an evening. We used the Carovigno rail station as a start point for a journey to Lecce - the highlight of our week. We would definitely recommend using the very efficient rail service to Lecce, it was on time and incredibly good value. Lecce was amazing and highly recommended. You can book on line with Trenitalia and store the tickets electronically to show the guard.

We also would recommend a restaurant called Locanda de Nonna in SanVito di Normandi - this was a brilliant eatery and only 20 minutes away.

We ate in a fair bit and it was easy to shop locally for produce - there are excellent fish shops and butchers in Ostuni with a very well stocked supermarket. There were a few supermarkets in Carovigno but it was better to travel to Ostuni for shopping.

Overall we had a really relaxing week at Bella Terra, the accommodation was clean and as described with no negatives to comment upon. Louisa is a wonderful host and has a really customer focussed approach, nothing was too much trouble and although only next door she was very discreet.

We would recommend Bella Terra to anyone who likes a beautiful trullo in the heart of the countryside but close enough to access the towns and beaches for exploring.

Thanks again Louisa

A perfect stay in a magical place

  • 5 of 5

We were shown around the trullo by the owner Lousia once we arrived and were delighted at how clean and comfortable it was.

Louisa is very helpful indeed and on hand if you need her without ever being intrusive.

The trullo is simply magical set within olive and fig trees that came in really handy when wanting to hide from the sun. Only a short three minute ride in the car and you can indulge in blue seas of Santa Sabina or travel in land and you have a super old local town to stroll around or eat at one of the many restaurants.

This is a base that is within easy reach of some lovely tourist attractions or you can simply take yourself to one of many beaches along the coast. All of which have different things to offer.

A super rest for us in a quiet location which is in easy reach of all.

Thanks for your hospitality Louisa!

Peace and Tranquilty

What a great location, loved the peace and quiet. Great base to tour from or just chill out, some nice local restaurants but all the facilities you need to dine in including the BBQ. The owner Louisa was really helpful with hints and tips about the local area.
