We are retired business people from the Lake District in England who like the good things in life. We found Puglia offered a relaxed lifestyle with excellent fresh, local produce and wine (Rick Stein thinks so too!). Finding Villa Maria just completed the picture and we fell in love straight away. We want our guests to feel the same way we do when they come here and welcome them personally. We are available to offer any advice or assistance necessary.

Elaine and Martin Phizacklea purchased this villa in 2007

We are very proud of Villa Maria. It was built with much thought and love and is very comfortable and welcoming with a huge, well established garden and large swimming pool. It is very spacious but also welcoming and extremely well equipped, especially for foodies! It is set amongst ancient olive and almond groves way into the horizon which you can admire whilst relaxing on the private veranda enjoying the local wines.

Whilst the villa is set amongst olive groves it is only 5 minutes from the famous Ostuni (Citta Bianca) and Ceglie Messapica (older then Rome). The local towns are all within easy driving distances, as are the Adriatic and Ionian coastline (10 & 20 mins respectively) The airports of Brindisi and Bari are both easily accessible (25mins & 1 hr away). There also golf courses within driving distance too.

After a lot of searching on the internet and many discussions with the rest of the family we decided to go for this villa. This was a very special occasion for us as it was my dad's 60th birthday celebrations. I'm always dubious when booking things like this as sometimes photos can look so much better than the actual villa. But I can safely say the villa looks much better than the photos. As soon as we arrived, the electric gates opened onto a huge swimming pool and vast grounds including grapevines. I was taken aback by the shear size of the property. The condition is fantastic; brilliantly decorated and very clean. I stayed in the Truli which was an experience in itself, very cool and authentic.

Elaine and Martin were great, always on hand for anything from local information to some of their homemade olive oil and wine.

Location-wise it's perfect too as it doesn't suffer from any noise from the main road but is only about 10mins drive from Ostuni or Cegile Messapica. We only managed to get to Ostuni in the week we were there but it has to have some of the best food we've ever tasted and we've been coming to Italy for over 20yrs. Amazing Anti-pasti (which isn't actually just meats and cheeses!), pastas and pizzas. Although, as my mum is a very fine Italian chef herself, we certainly made use of the huge kitchen at the villa which contained every pot, pan and utensil under the sun.

Please don't think twice about booking this villa. We can't wait to start organising another trip. A Truli fantastic experience (had to get a Truli joke in there somewhere.)

Cheers.

Dan De Pasquale & Family.
Owner's Response: Thank you Dan and family for your wonderful review. We are delighted that your stay at the villa made it a memorable 60th birthday. Best wishes to you all and we hope we will be welcoming you back to Villa Maria.

We were 7 persons visit wonderful Puglia and Villa Maria in June 2012. It was a fantastic place with the beautiful pool, the fantastic garden to walk around and enjoy life! The villa inside had everything we needed, a big modern kitchen, nice bedrooms and the lovely little “trulliroom” and a lot of space. And the nice place were we could make our own barbequeeveenings in the sunset, wow. We also liked the security arond the villa, it felt very safe.

The Villa is extremely well equipped and comfortable. We will certainly try to return to this wonderful villa. Elaine and Martins hospitality was outstanding. We really hope to see you again x .
The area around the villa is fantastic with a lot of things to se and do. In the village Ceglie nearby we visit very nice restaurants.

Fantastic 5 star villa

Firstly, I'd just like to thank Martin and Elaine for letting out your fabulous villa. We have had one of our most memorable holidays yet! The villa is beautiful, the setting is peaceful and the grounds are well kept. The amenities in the villa are more then you could ask for, you actually only need to unpack your suitcase and you feel like your in your own home, kitchen well stocked with all appliances etc, the decoration is fresh and extremely clean. The choice of DVDs is great! Actually nearly better than our local blockbusters!! The space and layout of the villa is a plus, if you have two families sharing there is amply space to spread out. The owners are fabulous, we feel like we've gained two great friends. Always there to help and offer good guidance on restaurants, places to see etc.

The location is great, only a short car journey to the local towns and beaches. Train station 10 minutes away where you go travel around the coast, both Bari and brindisi are a must to visit.

We had our two young boys with us (3 and 5), they loved the villa, it's a real treasure for all looking for a holiday in south Italy. We'll be booking again!

My wife and I visited Italy with our two grown up children and their partners
We stayed at Villa Maria for a week and thoroughly enjoyed it. The description and photographs on the site were very good but didn't do justice to the property and the siteing. The Villa was immacultely clean , well maintained and comfortable in every aspect .
We work very hard as a family and the stay at the villa was just what the doctor ordered, the weather was great , the accomodation first class, we especially enjoyed the peace and quite, and the owners Martin and Elaine could not have been more friendly and helpful. Since arriving home we have recomended to all our friends that hey should use the proprty if they are in the area , we have already booked for next year .

Thank you for everything Martin/Elaine we will keep in touch and see you next year

Family Holiday August 2012

We enjoyed a relaxing holiday in August last year (2012) at Villa Maria to celebrate my mother’s 80th birthday. The villa had everything we desired and for the 6 of us, all age ranges, which gave us the freedom to explore, find a quiet spot, come together for an meal, play games in the evening or simply watch one of the many DVDs provided by Elaine and Martin.
We especially enjoyed strolling through the gardens with all the different varieties of plants and trees (not forgetting Fred here). I was often found by the pool on a lounger drinking the local wine reading a book and grabbing figs from the tree. Heaven! Some afternoons we were lucky enough to see the local swallows swooping to drink from the pool in sequence, a beautiful sight.
The villa is well positioned to visit all of southern Puglia as everywhere is within easy reach. In our hired cars we went out on day trips to the sea, to various cities and to absorb the culture during the Italian ascension holiday. The market in Ostuni was great fun, the scent of peaches lingering throughout the stalls, and the taste of the local cheese was incredible! We felt confident enough during the day to leave my mother and aunt on their own because security around the villa was excellent and indeed the shuttering was needed when temperatures exceeded 45 degrees.
Elaine and Martin were exceptional hosts, warm and friendly. Arranging a stunning birthday cake for our youngest daughter and helping us out whenever we had a need. Nothing was too much trouble. In particular Elaine was on hand to help out with the internet for those dreaded exams results!
Having rented before in Italy and elsewhere in Europe, this was definitely a 5* experience for all of us!
