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

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 !

Salvo & Liz Natale purchased this villa in 2011

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 !!

Just wonderful!

Firstly I want to point out that this property is much better in reality than the photographs show you and they are very good. The house is very comfortable, modern and well designed, definitely everything you need for a perfect holiday stay. Even down to the fresh basil for your tomatoes, in the garden. The outside spaces, around the house, are beautiful and very relaxing. The pool is located at the end of the wonderful Mediterranean style garden, and is the biggest private pool we have ever had. If you are looking for a place to completely unwind in,with no distractions, plenty of peace and quiet, but with a town full of amenities, practically on your doorstep, then this is for you. I can honestly say that Villa Katia is the nicest holiday villa that we have rented. The small but very well stocked supermarket in Francavilla Fontana has a great selection of local red wine. Try the Negroamaro variety, they are so good. The last thing I want to mention is the lovely people that we met while we were there. They were all so friendly and helpful especially Salvo and Liz who made the process of booking so easy and we on hand, via mobile phone, if we had any problems. If we get the opportunity, we will go back.

Owner's Response: Dear Rosie and Mike
Thank you for your lovely review.
Yes its true its always difficult to reflect the full beauty of the house and gardens from a photo and we are delighted that you enjoyed the pool so much it does make you feel as if you are immersed in the olive grove and is even better at sunset.
Francavilla offers so much for a small town and we chose it for the fact that it is not a tourist "hub", it gives you a real feeling of an Italian town and the life that goes with it, we love sitting in the square in the evening all year round and just people watching.
The local food and wine is typically Italian,seasonal and fresh from street sellers to supermarkets, we do miss it when we are back home !
We look forward to your return visit.
Thank you Salvo and Liz

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5
We had a great holiday in Villa Katia. The villa was spotless and well equipped. The garden is large and picturesque but the icing on the cake is the pool, which we made great use of.
The area is delightful and a few beaches are easily accessible. We visited a few local towns and enjoyed meals out in some lovely local restaurants.
The owners couldn't have been more helpful and answered any questions we put to them.
We would highly recommend this villa and the surrounding area.

Owner's Response: Hi Julie,
Thank you for your kind review, it was a pleasure to assist you and your family to explore beautiful Puglia.
We have tried to make every aspect of the garden a pleasure for everyone to enjoy and
you are right, the mosaic tiled pool is such a welcoming sight for all our visitors.
We love the location of our villa because it gives you easy access to either coasts of Puglia which are both a short drive away.
We do hope that you will continue to explore the area and will visit again in the future .
Thank you,
Salvo and Liz

Smaller supermarkets can be found in the town along with fresh fruit and vegetable and bakeries can be found on every corner in Francavilla.

There is a huge market on Saturdays selling everything ! Francavilla becomes very busy so beware of traffic congestion.

Taralli and wood fire oven bread can be bought near to the Villa Katia at L'erede, which is on the main road leading to Francavilla.
