How to Relax - Stay at Villa Rosa

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at Villa Rosa. From the moment of receiving our directions we knew that the whole approach was both carefully thought through and relaxed. Clear instructions and superb e-mail correspondence meant we travelled with confidence. The owners were really welcoming; with a hamper second to none, including handmade goodies and local produce, so no panic over first meals. The facilities are great and travelling by car in the area is easy. For us, alternate days of pool with local browsing and travelling further afield were the perfect combination. There are superb restaurants in the area, read the visitors book when you get there. You will soon sink into the local approach to life, conversation and perambulation. There are some excellent beaches in the area varying from quiet sandy coves to fully serviced beaches with bars; the local guides at Villa Rosa provide all the information you need. We re-booked quite soon after we returned home and are now counting down the weeks.

Fantastic base for an Italian holiday

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of five and we really enjoyed our stay at Villa Rosa. From the first email every communication with Debbie and Bob was informative, friendly and professional. The instructions they provided to the villa were clear and straighforward. Upon arrival we were surprised by the generousity of the welcome basket which meant that we were well provided for our first night. The villa itself is well stocked and the pool is magnificent! We found that both the guide book and the guest book in the villa were rich sources of detail about local beaches, restaurants and surrounding towns and villages and we found that this really informed our visit to Puglia. This is a top notch holiday home and Puglia is a fascinating region that should be visited before it becomes any more developed.

Owner's Response: As always it's great to hear when our guests have enjoyed their holiday at Villa Rosa and we especially appreciate the comments about the Villa guide. We will be working on the guide (and our website) throughout the forthcoming winter to make sure both are up to date and comprehensive!

We are a family of four and had a great, first visit to Puglia. The Villa Rosa was a good anchor for our many travels around the area. The owners, Debbie and Bob, could not have been more helpful - both before and during our stay. All descriptions online of the villa are accurate, and it's very nice to have the beach towels, dvds, games, and very extensive quide books provided with the house. We cooked a lot with local produce and fish. The kitchen is well stocked. The welcome basket is wonderful, full of fresh food and fun treats. The villa is quiet at night for sleeping and very sunny in the day for the pool.
We loved the fun-filled Sun Beach in town, full of Italian families and walked the promenade very night eating gelato. Day trips to Lecce and Oria were beautiful with delicious lunches. Do the drive from Otranto to Leuca, spectacular. With very little Italian, we managed well everywhere. The people here are much friendlier than in some other more crowded areas of Northern Italy. Need a car. Thank you Debbie and Bob!

Discovering wonderful Puglia

  • 5 of 5
If you have ever thought about visiting Puglia then my advice is to book this villa now. All the financial arrangements beforehand were handled in a polite and professional manner and any questions we had were immediately answered. Instructions on how to get there were clear and easy to follow and the villa is a short and straightforward drive from Brindisi airport. The villa itself is fantastic: clean, cosy and comfortable. As other reviewers have mentioned it is superbly well-equipped – the only thing we added to the kitchen was an extra large lemon squeezer to tackle the huge fresh lemons growing in the back garden! Bob and Debbie (the owners) were so kind and helpful. They gave us our privacy but we always knew they were there to offer help and advice – I think this level of service would make this a particularly good villa to rent if you were a first- timer to the region, or even to Italy. Casalabate itself is small seaside resort but we there is a good restaurant and shops 5 minutes walk from the villa and many more a short drive away. We were amazed at how reasonable prices were and we also enjoyed using the wonderful, cheap local produce to cook our own meals. Puglia itself is amazing. The Salento region is not glamorous or upmarket but it has beauty and enormous charm. We needed our Italian phrasebook as few people speak English but the locals were always friendly and helpful. We alternated between relaxing and enjoying the fantastic pool or nearby beaches and visiting towns in the area. In particular we fell in love with Lecce which is a must see. I cannot believe this area is not full of tourists from all over the world, I have a feeling in the future it will be! So do yourself a favour and go there now whilst you can still have the feeling of discovering a new and wonderful part of Italy.

Owner's Response: Puglia is still unspoilt, and as the review says, not full of tourists. This is an opportunity to experience the real Italy.

The perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful house in such a wonderful part of Italy! I found Bob & Debbie's villa in Casalabate near perfect (and infinitely better than an experience in Tuscany last year). They have created a holiday home that is both warm and inviting, while still practical and managed with great efficiency (and the complete privacy of the villa is a plus). The pool is divine, and a short drive will get you to any number of gorgeous beaches, including one that was perfect for early morning romps with my dogs (Lido Exotica, 3 min up the road, turning left - go very early and it's all yours). The town itself is no great shakes, but the weekend market is pleasant (and do try the local cheese...very good). More importantly, it is very easy to get to many different locations of interest: I did the Salento peninsula and coast to Otranto one day; the Valley of the Trulli another; and Lecce anytime. Only improvement they could make was a little more air/con in the bedrooms, but it's a small detail. The welcome basket was a really great touch as well - something other holiday rentals tend to omit. Thanks guys!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay at Villa Rosa. The villa is located close to towns, both big and small, and restaurants that are either a short walk or a short drive away. We found an excellent pizzeria in Torchiarolo- Nonna Lisa's.

We have high standards when it comes to self catering accommodation and can honestly say that Villa Rosa lived up to and beyond our expectations. The house is well maintained and kitted out with all the amentities you could possibly want. The Welcome Basket is very welcome indeed and a very thoughtful gesture on behalf of the owners Bob and Debbie. Both Bob and Debbie are on hand if you need anything at all and are very obliging.

The pool is very inviting and a fun way to spend afternoons. The pool toys and swimming aids are handy if you have children who enjoy a splash about.

The gardens, both in the front and back of the property, provide a wonderful oasis. We enjoyed leisurely breakfasts sitting in between tangerine and lemon trees while butterflies fluttered by.

Some beautiful towns e.g. Otranto and Ostuni are about an hour and thirty minutes drive away. The university town of Lecce, about 30 minutes away, boasts beautiful baroque architecture. The Byzantine church in Otranto is a must see.

We enjoyed interacting with some very friendly locals and brushed up on our Italian. We enjoyed staying in the Villa and Casalabate so much that we are already planning our next trip.

This Villa cannot be recommended enough and we are so pleased to have found such a lovely place to enjoy our trips to Italy.
