Guestbook comments from the owner

"Relaxing, quiet, set in beautiful countryside"

Good directions, key left in key safe and villa clean and well stocked on arrival - enough to make a decent meal. Nice pool and comfortable but not luxurious accommodation. Kitchen space a bit tight so not ideal for any chefs. Third bedroom located downstairs and accessed from outside which not a problem for us as son is 20 but could be for young families. Good base to explore delightful area with beautiful towns with old town centres, good restaurants (cheap and great antipasti). Very quiet location - restful. Beaches 15 minutes drive. No air con which wasn't a major problem as temperature was around 30 during day and 20 at night. Thanks Cath Blakeman Sept 2012

"Lovely stay."

Great place to chill out and relax but close enough to get to the hustle and bustle. Need a car to get about but then you get to see the place! beach about 15 min drive away. Katy Cook Oct 2011

Villa rosa

  • 3 of 5

Make sure you choose a small car! The first time you drive down the narrow drive to the villa is quite a shock! Villa is situated in beautiful countryside, nice and close to Ostuni, though one must always consider the drive home if out late! Villa itself is well equipped though I think I would prefer air conditioning next time round. Pool was great. Mosquitos a bit of a nuisance!

Kathryn and Annie are very helpful and the welcome pack was the best one I have ever come across!

The beaches were disappointing in terms of cleanliness, but it was August and therefore very busy. Cisterninio and Monopoli were two of our favourite towns, very unspoilt Italy and fantastic food everywhere!

I think it was possibly a little too remote for our boys of 12 and 16 but we had a lovely time none the less. Thank you

Owner's Response: Hi Charlie, Thank you for your review of Villa Rosa and kind comments on the villa and our generous welcome pack. I wanted to explain that every window and the front door has mosquito screens so that visitors should not be bothered in the house by them as long as they are kept closed. We do mention in our description that the lane is narrow and will take cars up to 2.8m wide. Trucks do make it down the road as they have to deliver the water to the house. I agree that some of the beaches could be cleaner but we do put some suggestions in our guest book as to those that are less used and therefore a bit cleaner. I've spent time picking litter up off the beach when walking there and wish the local councils would do more to keep them cleaner but sadly this is a situation beyond my control. We do say the house is off the beaten track but only 5km from Ostuni. Most villas in the area are in the countryside and I can appreciate that teenagers like to be entertained but we do provide wifi, DVDs and board games and a large fenced pool to ensure child safety. Once again thank you for writing a review to help web visitors decide on a villa that's right for them.

Puglia 2013

  • 4 of 5

We could not have wished for a nicer introduction to Puglia.

The villa more than lived up to all our expectations -

the pool was super and the peaceful location made for a truly relaxing holiday

With Ostuni only a short drive we very quickly became one of the natives.

Already planning our 2014 return.

From the Owner

I love the area because it is not spoilt by tourism and has lovely countryside where you can get away from it all. You can enjoy the slightly higher altitude in the summer for the breezes but also be on the beach in 15 mins. The food and cuisine is wonderful and very affordable. There are plenty of places to visit and enjoy in the local area including a zoo safari park and lots of sandy safe beaches for children.

From the Owner

There are a host of festivals throughout the summer in Puglia in each of the small country towns which are normally always free. They include La Taranta (near Melpignano) which is the biggest music festival in Southern Europe which attracts over 150,000. You can enjoy the snorkeling in some of the many coves dotted along the coastline or take a walk in the pine forests in the area or enjoy a round of golf at one of the golf resorts.
