fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fantastic,memorable week at Villa Gemma. The owner Paolo is a true gentleman! On arriving we got a bit confused with directions and at 12am he came out to meet us. There was,a lovely welcome basket of local olive oil, biscuits, pasta sauce and wine and also 6 large bottles of water in the fridge. The villa itself was beautiful. It was furnished with traditional furniture and very tastefully decorated. There was plenty of room for the 6 of us with 4 large double rooms and 3 bathrooms. The grounds that the villa sits in are very well kept and there is a gas bbq and a traditional pizza oven on the rear terrace. As the weather was unseasonably hot (38 degrees) most days, air- conditioning would have been nice, but there were floor standing fans for each bedroom. There is also a resident cat that we named Frank! He doesn't belong to the villa but I think he just craved a bit of attention and was there to greet us every morning and evening! During our stay we managed to get a parking ticket and had trouble with the instructions (in Italian) on how to pay it. I text Paolo and he graciously came to our rescue and helped us to sort it out. A really genuine and lovely guy. If you are thinking of holidaying in the Puglia region of Italy, then please do yourself a favour and book Villa Gemma. You will not be disappointed!

Einfach herrlich!

  • 5 of 5

Ein großzügiges Haus in wunderschönem Anwesen. Umgeben von Oliven-, Zitronen- und Orangenbäumen. Von mehreren Terrassen, auch vom Dach, blickt man auf Trani und das Meer. Zahlreiche gut modernisierte Bäder machen den Aufenthalt auch für größere Gruppen komfortabel. Hinter dem Haus sitzt man sonnig und kann grillen. Für Kinder ist im Gelände unendlich viel Platz zum Spielen. Einfach herrlich!

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

The Villa Gemma was a great place for two families to spend a holiday. Quiet, natural, and relaxing- but close enough to Trani and Bari to make day trips. We appreciated Paolo- he hosted us like a member of his own family. I would recommend this Villa for anyone who seeks to decompress from busy urban life for a week or two. Paolo will take care of you!

Lovely Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We were a large family group of nine who stayed in villa Gemma in June/July. The villa was everything we had hoped for and was very spacious and well equipped. There were large grounds and a lovely view from the roof of Trani, the nearest town about 2 miles away. The house had wifi and satellite TV but did not have air conditioning. A car with sat nav is a must for getting around.

Paolo was very professional flexible and helpful, and spent lots of time showing us around on our arrival. Would definitely recommend this villa as a base for exploring the area.

This property is absolutely stunning. Words cannot describe the surrounding beauty. We spent a week at the villa and enjoyed every minute. Very good location in regards to going into town, beach and sightseeing. Very well kept property and you can see the love put into this home by the sophisticated décor.
