About the Owner

My name is Hilary and I have lived in Italy for a number of years. I decided to stay in this wonderful part of the world not only for the sun but for the peace and quiet of this beautiful corner of Italy. Springtime here is unbelievable. The wild flowers spreading colour across the land.

Relaxing and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Tucked away in an olive grove, about 10 minutes drive from Ceglie Messapica, we spent 2 lovely weeks in this villa, and were sad to leave. We were made very welcome by the owners, who live on-site, but unobtrusively. The villa was clean and tidy. Beds were comfortable. We were caught out by the extra fee for Air Con (mentioned in property details), and by the separate entry to the second bedroom using the main door to owners' residence (not mentioned in property details. Hilary offered to make sofa bed up in the TV/sun-room, but our 10 year old is quite confident and didn't mind sleeping in a separate part of the property). The pool was wonderful-one of the best we have ever used. Along with the barbeque and pizza oven, the addition of an outdoor poolside double gas ring, which we could share with the owners, was very useful, especially in order to stop the heat in the villa rising due to cooking. We were free to explore the property, and use the fresh produce growing there. Our son loved spending time with George,the retired horse! Hilary and Rocco gave us plenty of helpful tips and local information, and treated us to a wonderful meal during our stay-an unexpected and delightful treat! The villa location is good-not far from places such as Ostuni, Alberobello, Grottaglie,and the Adriatic coast, to name a few, though a car is essential.

Owner's Response: Although it is our first year of renting. We have found everyone really nice. This family wanted peace and quiet and I think they found it at our home. Their son was wonderful always in the pool and I called him our shark. Thankyou for a lovely review. x x x

Amazing cottage in a field of Olive trees

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 amazing days in this beautiful cottage at the middle of Puglia region. Hillary & Rocco were so kind with us, giving us advices about the visits and local shops. They get a huge sense of hosting people, it was a pleasure. The cottage is very comfortable, the swimming pool so great ! We had a very good time !
