About Richard & Noirin Bates

We are an Anglo-Irish couple who fell in love with Puglia and bought our first "Place in Puglia Villas" property ( Villa Sun Beach) as our holiday home when our family was young.

Our love of the area grew and when our children flew the nest, we decided to relocate here to Puglia in 2006 which is the year that we bought and re-built Villa Nicola.

We then sold our house and business back home, and relocated here and bought additional properties over the next few years.

Each one has been transformed into beautiful holiday rentals for our guests, with many families returning to us year after year and becoming friends in the process.

Villa Gallese was ready in 2010 and we purchased Villa Azzurra in autumn of 2011 which we fully rebuilt and had it ready for guests in the 2012 holiday season.

Each year from April when our guests start arriving, until the end of October when we close up for the winter, we dedicate ourselves to making sure that your hard earned and well deserved holiday goes as perfectly as possible and as we live just 10 minutes away from any of our properties, we are always on call if required during your stay.

For our guests we can organise extra services such as In-Villa dining, In-Villa Italian cookery lessons, inshore sea fishing and coastal excursions, winery and wine-tasting tours, bicycle hire as well as restaurant recommendations and advise on excursions and attractions, full details of these and all other infomation are in each of the properties In-Villa guidebook and also on our website at www.placeinpuglia.com.

Richard & Noirin Bates purchased this villa in 2012

Lovely stay in Villa Azzurra

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Puglia in Villa Azzurra exploring the Southern parts of Puglia. The location of Villa Azzurra is ideal for this. The villa has all amenities you can wish for. The owners of the villa made us feel welcome already before our holiday.

Great For Family

  • 5 of 5

Villa Azzurra was a great location for our family holiday in July 2016 . Pool a bit hit with young kids and Villa was well equipped , modern ,clean and comfortable with Richard and Noirin always available locally if needed. It is located on the edge of a small village ,Torre San Gennaro which has good shops locally for excellent local food and fish. A number of beach options nearby and the sights in Lecce, Ostuni and others all within easy reach by car.

Excellent accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at Villa Azzura which was exactly as described and in excellent condition. Richard and Noirin were there to meet us and give us a tour of the property even though we didn't arrive until quite late at night. They provided a very useful welcome pack which included the usual essentials of tea, coffee, milk, water, bread, butter and jam but some extra's as well to get our holiday off to a good start. We loved the pool which gets the sun all day and is very private and the shaded outdoor eating area was ideal. The location was perfect as it was ideal for visiting the nearby areas of Lecce, Otranto, Locorotanda and Monopoli to name but a few but Otranto was definitely our favourite. We highly recommend the villa and would love to return again.

Thank you Richard and Noirin.

A wonderful Villa perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 adults and a young baby staying in Puglia requiring a restful , as well as wanting to do some occasional sightseeing and the Villa Azzura was just ideal for this. The Villa was perfect, clean and in an ideal location for some peace and quiet.

The lovely little pool was a great hit with all the family.

Our host was very helpful and easy to contact if we had any enquiries.

We hired a car from the airport and checked out a few of the many points of interest.

It helps and is nice to know a little Italian to get by but people are very friendly and helpful.

Weather was perfect and we visited local beaches that were in walking distance and some better one's by car. We would love to visit again soon.

Car: recommended

Beautiful two bedroomed Villa, with garden, gated entrance and private swimming pool, situated just minutes walk from the sandy beach. The property has been lovingly renovated and equipped and benefits from a very high level of finish and furnishings.

Located by the seaside village of Torre San Gennaro, a holiday village with year round shops, bars and bakery, etc.. During the summer there are ice cream parlours, pizzerias, restaurants and bars open along the beach front and the seaside piazzas and squares.

Close enough to both Campo di Mare and Lendinuso to also avail of further amenities in each village,

Villa Azzurra is also just 5kms to the town of Torchiarolo, 20 km to the stunning city of Lecce, 15 kms to Brindisi and ideally situated to explore all of Puglia and the Salento.

Holiday where Italians holiday... here in Puglia and experience the real Italy.

Villa Azzurra is the perfect place to relax and unwind, beside the pool, on the beach or exploring the Salento.

Golf: 5 star Acaya Golf Course is approx 25 km from the Villa.
