Why Tony chose Carovigno

The sea, olive trees, the colorful vegetation and the tranquility of the area led us to buy a piece of land in Carovigno and build our home away from home.

Notes on accommodation: Villa Spina is a 140 m² retreat consisting of 4 bedrooms, each circa 18 m². An open plan kitchen, dining and living area, approximately 60 m², make for spacious and comfortable relaxation areas. There are three wall-mounted A/C units which are hardly ever used as the villa is naturally cooled by the prevailing northern and southern breezes which flow through the house. All bedrooms have their own access to the terrace and pool area. A travel cot and high-chair are also available. Hot water is provide by the sun with a 250 litre roof-top hot water tank. For the rare overcast days, an electric hot-water boiler will ensure your uninterrupted comfort. There are two fully equipped bathrooms inside the villa. There is another enclosed WC under the stairs going to the roof-top terrace with a shower on the outside. These are easily accessible from the pool area. Outside: Villa Spina has 100 m² of terraces around the pool facing the beautiful Adriatic sea. An extendable teak table with 8 teak high-back chairs are provided for outside dining. A barbecue is also at your disposal. Also facing the terrace is the private 5m x 12m pool. The area around the house and most of the pool area is laid with grass, flowers and shrubs. You will also find a fruit orchard intermingled with various edible spice plants. Centuries-old olive trees together with almond, fig trees and pomegranates populate the rest of the land. So whatever is in season during your stay can be picked and eaten fresh from its source. Oleander and hibiscus bushes which are in bloom almost all year-round make for a fantastic array of colours . Cleaning / Towels / Linen : Bed linen and towels are all included. However, if you plan on using the available travel cot, for your own piece of mind, please bring your own baby blankets. The villa will be thoroughly cleaned before your arrival

Perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

The villa lived up to our expectation and we could not have asked for anything more. Everything was great from the pool to the bedrooms to the landscaped grounds. Particularly enjoyed having morning coffees on the terrace with the early morning sun shining down and enjoying the relaxing seaview. The kids definitely enjoyed the pool and running around on the grounds. Absolutely breathtaking! Highly recommended!

Great getaway destination

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I plus our two teenage kids spent two wonderful weeks in August at Villa Spina. The four bedroom house offered everybody privacy in their rooms while the open design of the common areas made for great family interaction. The facility, including the generously sized pool, were in top condition, which further enhanced the experience. Easy access to various towns and villages as well as the sea makes the spot ideal if you're looking for a relaxing time among the olive trees away from clubs and crowded tourist areas. Highly recommended!

Fantastic vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Although we were a little early in the season - we had a wonderful holiday at this great spot. The layout of the facility was perfect - 4 bedrooms, 2 baths and spacious open concept kitchen, dining and living room area - all on one floor. Having said that - we spent most of our time outside either beside the pool, or on the large patio area enjoying a BBQ, the view of the sea and lovely garden as the roses and many of the other plants were already in bloom. We enjoyed visits to Carovigno, Ostuni and Lecce.

Beautiful and relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed there for two weeks. The house is very clean and the layout of the house is great. There are 4 bedrooms and two bathrooms and this allowed my spouse and I to have our 'wing' and the kids had their 'wing'. The kitchen, living room and patio are all open concept so I always had an eye on the kids.

The pool was my favourite part, it is perfect for exercise and to play because it is the same depth so we could always touch the floor. The area is very quiet, and while you have dinner on the patio you have a view of the ocean.

You do need a car to get to places, but I guess that comes with wanting the peace and quiet we were looking for. It is safe and the grounds are big enough for the kids to run around and enjoy themselves within the gates of the house.

You are only a few minutes away from really good Italian restaurants and the market at Carovigno (great finds for souvenirs and good food to bring home and cook). You must try the restaurant Fantasy, everything was delicious (we went 3 times!) and they have good 'to-go' pizza to enjoy at home with some good wine.

We went to the beach a few times, but enjoyed being at the house with the pool just as much. It was easy to go for day trips to Brindisi, Bari etc and we saved a lot of money because we'd usually come home for a late supper.

I'd recommend this home if you are going on a family vacation, if you want more of a party and nightlife vacation you might not enjoy the location. Next time we want to take the ferry to go visit the Greek islands for a few days while we are there.

Villa Spina allowed us to have one of the quietest and relaxing holiday we have had in years, we are already planning to return soon.
