Luxurious Villa With Large Pool

Overview

Property

Updated: 09-Dec-2016
Beautiful Villa with all comforts near Alberobello, Locorotondo, Martina Franca - Ideal For Families, Pool Fence Protected, Beautiful Location, 30 Min To The Coast

A wonderful place all year round and which offers lots of things to do for the whole family. The pool is open from mid-April through October. The central garden and pool area are shared with the other house on the plot (a traditional Trullo which sleeps 4 people). Garden, pool and pool area (with large shaded dining area) are very generously sized, in order to offer enough space to each party, in case both houses are occupied. We are confident we can recommend this property to anyone, including families with small children (our own kids grew up here). The property is a tranquil, safe and child-friendly environment, the pool is protected by a fence. The garden has a great variety of fruit and olive trees, some hundreds of years old. There are many attractions in the area: Lots of little towns with wonderful historical centers, Unesco heritage sites like Alberobello (just 15 minutes by car) and Matera, Lecce with its amazing baroque, lots of beaches on both coasts, countless typical restaurants for all budgets...Upon arrival you will find your complimentary Welcome Kit with useful information and advice about the area.

The Villa, a recent build, has been designed to interpret the original style of the local architecture without trying to look like an ancient building. This is expressed in the small windows towards the front and the inclined outer walls. It is very spacious and light. All bedrooms have their own access to the garden. Equipped with aircondition and underfloor-heating.

About the Owner

My husband, Alessandro, and I have been living in this wonderful area for several years now. Alessandro was born and raised in Martina Franca while I'm originally from Munich (Germany). The Trullo and land have been in Alessandro's family for seven generations (it was build by an ancestor). We have restored it very carefully, focusing on keeping its original features, such as the exposed stone arches and the century-old limestone on the floor. At the same time, we have built a new house on the land which we wanted to blend in with the local architecture without trying to look ancient. We have spent a lot of time exploring this enchanting region and love to share our findings and experience with people who come and visit us.

Luxury villa and pool

  • 5 of 5

We spent a thoroughly enjoyable week here. The villa was stunning and beautifully appointed. The booking process and instructions on how to get there were amazingly detailed and we managed to find the property late at night without any problems. There was a welcoming gift of local biscuits and wine when we arrived and the owners - Sandro and Ina - were on hand to help with any problems and to provide local information. Sadly it was a little too cold in October to use the pool but everything else was perfect. We thoroughly recommend it as a place to stay.

Gloriously spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is all the photos suggest and more. They don't do justice to how spacious it is. It combines elegance with comfort, with nice bonuses like figs on the trees and (for our sons' benefit) Sky on TV. The pool is big though a little chilly in late September, bracing but irresistible. The location is handy for visiting a number of beautiful towns, our favourite was Locorotondo, and easy enough to get off to the sea. Though you could be tempted just to stay there. We loved the place.

The hosts were very helpful. Welcoming with well thought out directions to get there and a useful booklet of local information.

No ifs or buts, this place was excellent.

Fantastic hosts

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the villa with our two year old and six month old and Ina could not have been more helpful, setting up the cots and high chairs and even leaving out some toys for our children. She was unceasingly helpful throughout our stay, from providing us with weather forecasts and suggestions for rainy day activities to printing our boarding passes for our return flights. Our daughter loved picking fruit from the trees in the garden for breakfast. Thank you both for being truly fantastic hosts.

The villa is great, clean and smart and has everything we needed. The towns nearby are lovely, Martina France our favourite for lovely buildings, restaurants and gelato!

We couldn't fault our holiday, if only the weather had been a bit better!

Holiday in fabulous villa in Puglia

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the villa and were warmly welcomed by our hosts who had a bottle of Prosecco in the fridge with cheese and olives. The villa exceeded our expectations. Extremely spacious, comfortably furnished and super grounds with olive trees, an orchard and a lovely swimming pool. We lived off the land on Pomegranates, Figs and walnuts which were all in season. Very nice outdoor area for barbecues. The weather could have been better. We expected it to be warmer and drier, however it was pleasant. Martina Franca, a lovely old town was just 10 minutes away. There were many interesting towns to visit, especially Lecce further south. We visited the Adriatic and Ionian coasts. The seafood was superb and very reasonably priced. Our hosts were very helpful in recommending good restaurants and made several bookings for us. The villa was a peaceful haven to get back to. We enjoyed a very relaxing week in Puglia and would like to return some day.

Perfect house for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

A lovely property, equipped with all mod cons in an idyllic location. The pool is safe for toddlers with its fence around it and the playground entertained our 2 year old for hours. The owners were so friendly and helpful but never obtrusive. Some lovely towns nearby and not too far to the beach by car. We stayed in both houses at this site and both are great, although the house is much bigger (the Trullo is quite big itself though and has plenty of space for 4 people). Perfect!

Very good

  • 5 of 5

The house is very well decorated, clean, well maintainted and well thought of. The owners are really concerned that you have a good stay, and in case of any problem, they look for a solution. The pool is great, and so are the old olive trees in the spacious garden.

Location

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

The nearest beach, on the Adriatic coast, is about 30 minutes by car. At about 1 hour’s drive is the Ionian coast which we definitely recommend you explore. Puglia is long and narrow, with the sea on almost all sides, so there are hundreds of miles of coastline, with countless places of all kinds: Fully equipped beach clubs for all budgets, free beaches with high dunes and great scenery and anything in between. We will be happy to supply you with directions to what we think are the best places.

Travel:

Nearest airports are Bari and Brindisi, both at about 1 hour's drive. It is essential to have a car in this area as public transport is scarce to use an euphemism. Cars can be easily rented at the airports. It is very important to book your car in advance.

In case you arrive late or want to avoid the hassle of food shopping on your first day, we can do this for you, as well as organising catering for your first evening's dinner. Please write to us for more details.

Distances:

Nearby towns: Martina Franca, famous for its ancient baroque centre and the opera festival in summer, is just 4 km away. Even nearer is Locorotondo which holds the official title “uno dei borghi piu belli d’italia” (“one of Italy’s most beautiful villages”). Famous Alberobello, a Unesco World Heritage Site, can be reached in about 15 minutes by car. Also nearby are Cisternino and Ostuni, two very pretty and lively towns. Lecce, the capital of baroque architecture is about one hour's drive away.

Further Details:

The area offers many attractions, with loads of interesting festivals, countless wonderful towns and places to visit and explore. It is also a great area when you are on vacation with children. We can offer some experience on this topic as our twin boys grew up here.

There are great restaurants for all budgets and the most delicious local produce in case you prefer to cook.

We will be happy to supply you with information and directions.
