Incredible villa for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 1, 2012
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
We recently stayed at Villa Fiorella for one week (wish it was longer!) for a family vacation. The villa exceeded our expectations on so many levels. We were a group of 6; 4 adults and 2 children and the pool was a big hit with everyone, especially the kids. Even though the weather was unusually hot (we had an entire week of perfect weather), the pool water stayed cool and refreshing the entire time. And Diane and Michael ensure that it is spotless and well maintained. We couldn't believe how large the pool was for a private residence.

The villa itself was also larger than we expected, with great balconies giving views of Ostuni, the water, and the surrounding landscape. Because of its location, the villa is close enough to town to be convenient for grocery shopping and sightseeing, but just far enough out of town to be peaceful and private. And, it was spotlessly clean when we arrived.

Diana and Ian were most helpful. They assisted us when we had problems getting our rental car and they showed us where to get the best local wine (Lu Capasone in Ostuni) and foods and where to park in Ostuni. When we arrived on Sat night tired and hungry, we were amazed to find a refrigerator full of food, a carafe of wine, a personal note, and an extremely thorough welcome packet with loads of information (which we used on many occasions). We used Angelo for taxi service on one occasion and he was very prompt with a beautiful car! We couldn't believe the attention to detail and effort they put into making us feel welcome and providing us with so much information. We can't say enough good things about them.

Wonderful, clean beaches are close by. We went to one called "Mediterranean(?)" because we wanted the convenience of bathrooms and a snack bar for the kids. It was very reasonable for parking, had chairs for rent and a snack bar that was better than any beach snack bar we'd find in the US! A drive along the coast is also a must. We made a day trip to Alberobello and we found nearby Cisternino to be quaint and a lot of fun. We bought fresh fruits and vegetables at the Wednesday market in Ostuni. Fresh seafood is also abundant.

The villa has all the conveniences you'll need. It is perfect for all ages. If you are looking for a great place for a family vacation, this is it! We highly recommend Villa Fiorella.

Ideal setting for a perfect family holiday.

Just back from a terrific holiday at Villa Fiorella (grandparents and 2 families: in total 6 adults and 4 children of 11, 9, 7 and 5 years old). It is a really comfortable and big house, with everything you need, spotlessly clean on arrival. When renting a holiday home, there is always this delicate balance between hope it will be as presented on the site, or perhaps better, and fear it will be a disappointment. Villa Fiorella made all expectations come through, and Diana's efforts and tips before and especially during our stay made the difference. When we stayed at the villa, she was in the UK, but we kept in contact via email and she used her very efficient network to organise things on our request, probably better than anyone locally would have been able to, really impressive.

We were there during the first week of June, and even if the temperature outside reached 32°C, it was always nice and cool inside, the highest temperature I saw on the thermometer in the house was 23°C (no need to use the ventilators). The location of the villa is perfect: next to Ostuni, which is only a few minutes by car. It is a city big enough for people looking for culture, shops, good restaurants (try "Osteria del Tempo Perso", if you want to give yourself a good treat!) and bars, but with a cosy and nice atmosphere. The sea is nearby, with several (small) beaches, and there are various interesting villages in the neighbourhood, close enough for a visit in the morning or afternoon. It was always a pleasure to come back to the villa afterwards. We especially liked that the villa is tranquil and beautifully located, but not totally isolated. The swimming pool was a total success: large enough for a good swim, but also very comfortable for the children to play in the undeep part. It was a pleasant surprise to feel warm water running out of the shower next to the pool.

For us, Villa Fiorella was the ideal setting for a perfect family holiday. Picture us, after a swim all together in the pool, dressed for the perfect evening temperature, with a prosecco under the gazebo, the children playing in the garden. Then, dinner, all together around the stone table on the terrace, Rosanna's homemade pizza's straight from the pizza oven to our plates. The ideal occasion and atmosphere for us catching up as a family, enjoying being together... what a feeling of complete happiness! That's how good life can be.

A Magnificient Villa in a beautiful part of Italy

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 29, 2009
  • Stayed: Apr 2009
We visited in April 2009. The Villa is magnificent and has a wonderful patio and swimming pool with plenty of space to relax. Our children (7 and 5) enjoyed swimming most evenings. The photographs don't do it justice. Inside the Villa is very spacious and clean and with four bedrooms and three bathrooms is suitable for both small and large families. The Villa has everything you need for your stay, buckets, spades etc are provided for the children to use at the beach.

Diane and Michael were perfect hosts. We arrived at 12.00 midnight on Saturday and they were there to welcome us and had a wonderful supper prepared, with local red wine, which was excellent. They advised us on the places to visit and where to eat and encouraged us to call them if we needed anything during our stay. Their recommendations were perfect.

Ostuni is a lovely old town about 5 minutes drive from the Villa. It has many lovely restaurants, which are all reasonably priced. The locals as you expect with Italians were very helpful and friendly. The Villa is a great place to stay whether you want to relax or go sight seeing as there are many towns all within less than an hours drive. Places to see are Cisterino, Martina Franca, Alberobello (trulli houses) and Lecce.

We have been to many places in Italy and this was the best Villa we stayed in.

If you decide to stay in the Villa, you will not be disappointed.

A great holiday in a beautiful villa in a wonderful part of Italy.
A warm welcome was given by Diane on arrival and everything you needed for your stay was provided.The large swimming pool is set in a beautiful garden with plenty of space to relax.
The weather for October was great,we travelled around by car but one day we took the train to Lecce which was a great day out.
We look forward to returning very soon.

I have never had the post holiday blues so bad!!!!

We have had a great 2 weeks in this fantastic villa. The Villa and pool were absolutely fabulous and proved a real hit with both the children and adults. We did not move too far from the pool in the second week of our stay which says it all.

But if anything could top the accommodation it was Diane, our perfect hostess - she has been an amazing. As well as offering suggestions and recommendations on places and restaurants to visit she gave private swimming lessons to our kids, assisted with our hire car breakdown and just showed a genuine interest and passion in ensuring we had the best holiday ever - and we certainly did.

Ostuni is a beautiful part of Italy and we'd love to come back and visit and stay in Diane's villa again.

Ostuni (white city) in Puglia is one of the most stunning towns of southern Italy. Bathed in sunshine for most of the year the climate is typically Mediterranean with warm breezes that sweep across this ancient landscape with its endless olive groves, sandy beaches lapped by clean waters of the Adriatic, a wealth of history and well preserved buildings displaying some of the finest examples of Baroque architecture in Puglia. There is lots of local atmosphere only 5 mins away in Ostuni Piazza with excellent restaurants and craft shops tucked away amongst the well preserved winding cobbled streets. Additionally you are ideally placed for exploring Baroque architecture and ampitheatre - Lecce 70km, Alberobello (30km) UNESCO world heritage site - delightful Trulli buildings found nowhere else in Italy, wonderful port of Brindisi (30km) where ferries sail to Greece, Villanova (7km) - where you can dine in open air restaurants overlooking the Adriatic sea, Amalfi coast - Pompeii (3hrs.
