Property type villa
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

Villa in Ostuni, Brindisi Province, Puglia, Italy - Sleeps 6 All EnSuite Sea Views of Adriatic & Castle Large Terraces Air Con Shade

This holiday home has all the character of stone vaulted rooms and conical trullo but with the convenience of a newly renovated, well insulated design. Six 5 star reviews on Tripadvisor. Very good unlimited wifi included. Modern bathrooms and kitchen with professional cooker. Look out from the veranda over the pool to the Aloes and Olive trees, or from the roof terrace, great for evening parties, to the Adriatic or the beautifully lit Carovigno and its castle. Seven minutes drive to Ostuni, the white city, "the jewel of Puglia" with its wonderful old city to explore by day or enjoy in the warm night air. Relax in old bars, or the sophisticated modernity melted into the solid stone. Carovigno has a lot to offer from gourmet to great value restaurants with fantastic food and low prices. Italians choose to holiday here. The veranda has an outside kitchen, popular in southern Italy, and we have two barbecues. The local fish, meat and vegetables are exceptional so you can go into town later and chill, or just watch the sun go down, poolside.

Villa Acacia is in Ostuni, with all the convenience that gives in getting around and to the beaches etc. Many properties now coming up, under a new Ownersdirect system, for an "Ostuni" search are up to thirty kilometers distance and are far from convenient. Many roads here are single track and compare similarly to driving times for distances in Cornwall for example.

About Will Sanderson

I refund the Service Fee, whenever you prefer it.

"From the start of booking to the return of our deposit the owner has been top class. His one concern being that we have everything we need plus giving very helpful advice for trips, eating etc." Trip Advisor 5 star review.

"One more thing – the proprietor, Will Sanderson, is a true gem and the ultimate in hospitality. He very patiently acquainted us with the nearby town, showing us the supermarket, fish store, the better bread store and the not-so-better bread store, the best place to get local wine and the restaurants and night spots. Then, going one step beyond, he stepped in to help us through a medical emergency and assisted us in arranging some emergency flight plans, for which I am most grateful. If you book this villa, consider Will one its assets." Trip Advisor 5 star review

Will Sanderson purchased this villa in 2007

Why Will Sanderson chose Brindisi area

Very convenient but tranquil. Many properties in Puglia are remote to the extent of inconvenience when you wish to go anywhere. Villa Acacia is in a great location, away from it all yet within 5 minutes drive you can be in Ostuni or Carovigno and in 10 minutes at the beaches or on the motorway, to Lecce for example.

What makes this villa unique

The olive grove here is particularly nice, of a good size with trees of over one hundred years, and with views out to the Adriatic. If you leave a review we will send you a litre of our olive oil to your home - you can taste the difference!

A fantastic week away in a lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

Great location for a truly relaxing week. Villa is in character with the area with all the mod cons you could need for a perfect holiday. We ate out locally in Carovigno and Ostuni and also in at the villa. The rooftop table was superb for a sunny breakfast. with beautiful views. Will was the perfect host even arranging a cookery day which we thoroughly enjoyed. While we were in residence a little cat arrived looking very sad and beaten up. We think she had been abandoned. We fed and cuddled her back to health and called her Squiffy. She seems to like the Villa Acacia as her new home.

Beautiful Villa/Trullo in lovely part of Puglia

  • 5 of 5

Villa Acacia is a charming property, and has been renovated to a high standard with care taken to preserve its unique features. It offered all the modern amenities you would expect, with lots of space to spread out and relax. We were delighted to find almonds, walnuts, lemons, and figs all growing in the grounds of the villa. The location, between pretty Ostuni and Carovigno, was a great base from which to explore Puglia, and we were able to fit in a couple of great day trips. One to Lecce and Otranto, and another taking in Albertobello, Locorotondo, and Martina Franca. Bicycles were available at the villa for those wanting to explore locally.

Will is a truly great host and could not have been kinder. He gave us lots of good recommendations on local restaurants and places worth visiting, such as the best nearby beaches.

It is one of the only villas we would genuinely like to go back to and I would definitely recommend this property as a place to unwind and sample the charm of Puglia.

Owner's Response: Thank you. And you will be most welcome to return. We have tried to make Villa Acacia a tranquil and relaxing home from home with everything you might need. Puglia has so much in depth to offer - there is always another lovely blue flag beach to discover or a beautiful town, ancient site or market to explore. The Pugliese are so friendly too, and coupled with fantastic food and great wine the days here are very relaxed. The evenings and nights can have great sophistication and a lovely vibe. I look forward to your return to this wonderful part of the world. Best wishes, Will

A really great villa for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a lovely stay at this villa. We enjoyed spending time relaxing by the pool and eating outside.

The villa is in a really good location - close but not too close to a town which was ideal for us.

Will, the owner was very attentive - you will be amazed at the bounty of goodies he buys for his guests. He even bought us breakfast on our last day which was very thoughtful of him.

The only downside of our stay was that it wasn't long enough.

Many thanks for a lovely stay.

Villa Acacia peaceful set amongst olive trees.

  • 5 of 5

Villa Acacia was just what we needed clean, comfortable and a great base from which to explore Puglia. It had everything we needed especially peace and quiet. The villa is semi remote and a car is essential however Carovigno is just 8 mins away with all your amenities. Ostuni with its beautiful charm and atmosphere white washed buildings is 15 mins away and comes alive of a night time. Will the owner is very helpful and always on hand directing you to various shops (supermarkets,butchers,bakers etc) We will be coming back to explore some more.

Owner's Response: Thank you. I am very pleased you found Villa Acacia so well placed - we are very central for the places to visit in Puglia. Ostuni is described as "the jewel of Puglia" and it truly is. I know you enjoyed coming into Ostuni and particularly you enjoyed being at Riccardo Cafe - there is a very special atmosphere in the centro storico of Ostuni. The olive trees and the tranquility at Villa Acacia are a lovely basis for a great holiday. I look forward to your return, there is so much for you to enjoy close by here - the beaches at Torre Pozzella, Montecelli, and Santa Sabina, the marina at Villanova, Lecce, Otranto, Matera, Gallipoli, Alberobello, Castellana Grotte, the wine tours and the olive groves. Best Wishes, Will

A lovely peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

Great accommodation for a family plus!! Will was an excellent host- very helpful with a great approach to villa rental which made our stay all the more relaxed. The welcome pack of food (and excellent wine!) was the best we have ever experienced. Caravigno is a lovely local town, and nearby Ostuni is quintessentially Italian. We would happily return.

Owner's Response: Hi, Thank you very much - I aim to please, and know that when it comes to those hard earned holidays it is more than important for you to be able to relax quickly into your holiday and then have a great time. The villa is in a fantastic and tranquil position between Ostuni and Carovigno and close to the beaches at Torre Pozzella, Santa Sabina, and the Marine Protected Area and beaches at Torre Guaceto. It is a wonderful part of the word to be in, it was wonderful to meet you all and I am very pleased you had a great time. Best wishes, Will
