Guestbook comments from the owner
A wonderful 2 weeks has been enjoyed by us all
The time has flown by,the villa has been everything and MORE !
Definitely home from home.
The villa is well equipped for the entire family including the" wasp zapper"- a big boy toy ( be warned !!)
Liz and Salvo couldn't have been more helpful with the lead up to and during our stay.
So a couple of places to see, as previous visitors stated Ostuni is worth a visit 25 minutes away and beaches on the south coast including Torre Colimena.
A trip to a local winery ( including a tour of the grounds ) Azienda Agricola Melillo near Villa Castelli is a must.
Lastly a trip to Lo Sfizio Divino (Francavilla) the pizza is worth a trip 15€ for 5 of us !!
couldn't eat at home for that !
Thanks again and will recommend to all !! Ciao
Salvo & Liz Natale
We live in Plymouth and have two sons both at University.
We have an Italian delicatessen and cafe called IL Pezzettino here in Plymouth.
So we tend to live and breathe all things Italian, Salvo is Sicilian and Liz is from Bristol !
After spending several holidays with our family in Puglia we decided to search for a property that would enable us to enjoy the simplicity of rural life and food of this unspoilt region.
Villa Katia (its original name) has been extended and modernised, adding a swimming pool.
The villa has the advantage of being very close to the beautiful Baroque town of Francavilla with all the facilities expected of a modern town, to people watch or 'passegiare' visit shops, bars cafes all things stereotypically associated with Italian lifestyle and at the same time enjoy the peace and tranquility of Villa Katia a short drive away.
The house is in 11,000 sq mts of olive,almond and fruit trees and the only sound you will hear is from the 'cicale'. We love the natural shaded areas dotted all around the gardens provided by the olive trees.
We love the fact that you can land at Brindisi airport and within 40 minutes of picking up your hire car, you can be in the swimming pool !
We love using the wood fired pizza/bread oven and enjoying our own olives and olive oil from our own trees with a glass of local Primitivo !!
