My wife Sarah and I have three young children under the age of 11. We live in Suffolk and first visited Puglia back in 2000. Having fallen in love with the region we decided it would be an ideal place for a holiday home. We built and equipped the Villa with our family holidays in mind. We have had may fantastic stays at Villa Vesta and hope you enjoy yourselves here as much as we do.

A home away from home. Set in a beautiful and peaceful surrounding, yet only 10 minutes drive to the nearest town with a small supermarket just 5 minutes away. We have tried to include everything required to make your holiday as comfortable and as easy as possible. The kitchen has everything you could need from an electric kettle to a potato peeler that actually peels! Air-conditioned bedrooms lead to a good nights sleep in the warmer months with central heating and duvets for the colder times of year. All bedding and towels are included. The Villa is an ideal place to relax, or for the more adventurous, the perfect base for exploring the surrounding towns, villages and beaches. We are just 10 minutes from Cisternino, 15 minutes from the stunning Ostuni and only 90km from Lecce. The Agean coast is but 20 minutes drive or visit the Ionion Sea in under 2 hours. We have been visiting Puglia every year since completing Villa Vesta in 2007 and every trip we find new and interesting things to do. The area is rich in history and the Puglian people are friendly and welcoming and, rightly so, very proud of their beautiful region.

The area offers many beatutiful and interesting places including Cisternino, Ostuni 'La Citta Bianca', Martina Franca, the stunning churches of Monopoli, the impressive limestone caves of Castellana Grotte and the World Heritage Site of Alberobello with its famous Trulli. Slightly further afield (approx 100km drive) is the city of Lecce, kicknamed 'the Florence of the South' with its renowned Baroque architecture. The nearest beach is located at Torre Carne, 10 minutes further on is the well equipped (parking, showers, wc, bar, restaurant) Lido Bosco Verde just before Pilone. There is also the zoo-safari at Fasano.

Wow!!! we just had to put pen to paper to say a big thank you for the part you played in us having such a lovely family holiday recently, by which I mean thank you for our stay at your beautiful villa.
The place is outstanding with all of the features and facilities of modern living , no need for packing all of the electrical goods … everything was already there and to hand…. Definitely no roughing it here!!!
My wife and I stayed there along with her mum and dad, our own daughter, her husband and their 3yr old daughter, our granddaughter! And what a time she had in the pool, she couldn’t get enough of it and she even got me in there too.
Although we needed our vehicle to get anywhere it was never a problem with the town of Cisternino being only a few minutes drive away if we needed anything or fancied eating out.
Although the villa is in a secluded setting its well placed and central as a base for visiting other outlying towns or the beaches on the coast.
When we arrived we were met by Bettina and what a great help she was, a really lovely woman and its fair to say your villa is in safe hands with her looking out for it. She had already been out and had put the welcome pack together, well when I say welcome pack it was nearly a weeks worth of shopping!!
The weather was great, the food and wine was great and so was the company, we all had a fabulous time and will definitely be looking to holiday there again in the future, I would recommend it to anyone wanting a get away from it all break.
Thank you both once again Hal & Sarah

Judith, Roger and family

This was our second visit to Villa Vesta and we were at home in an instant. The manager and her team are incredibly thoughtful and welcomed us back literally with open arms. The house is cool, crisp, stylish and the main living area is open plan making it the social heart of the house. However, relaxing in the outside living area is a dream with scented hedges, flowers and is a signature of the architect Bettina's properties. This was our fifth visit to this lovely area with historic buildings and even older olive trees (1500 + years) and the villa is a great centre for the beach and surrounding towns. The villa caters for many guests and is very well equipped.

Wonderful Vacation Home and Base to Explore

This was our first time in Puglia and Villa Vesta made for a perfect base to explore the area. Major "must see" sites and hidden gems were all within a reasonable drive. The house is in a perfect setting and beautifully appointed. Being winter, the pool was closed but it was still warm enough on some days to sit outside for lunch and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

The house was extremely comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. The bedrooms, bathrooms and living areas were spacious, modern and pristine. The kitchen had everything we needed. There was nothing more we could have asked for, and look forward to returning. A special thanks to Bettina for her help in arranging a most magnifcent cooking class for lunch and dinner (a 17th birthday celebration for our son), and New Year's eve at Bell' Italia in Cisternino!!

Many thanks for a wonderful holiday!!
Owner's Response: Martha,
thank you very much for your kind words. You are the first to stay at our Villa over New Year and I hope not the last! It sounds like you had the most fantastic time, I'm very pleased for you and glad for the feedback about the Villa's facilities.
Regards Halley

Not only did we adore this property but our children felt at home too. With an added sense of adventure they relaxed in the airy well planned living space.The location we knew from previous visits but the immediate surroundings of the villa were lovely. The perfumed lavender and rosemary hedges guide your senses around the grounds. The evening atmosphere is tranquil and calm as is the safe pool area. Resources in the house were well equipped as were things to keep the children happy. The manager of the house is amazing as are her support staff who will assist you at any time. The British owners are delightful to deal with and the whole holiday was fantastic. We would revisit this villa and have already recommended it to family and friends.
Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. I am very pleased to know that you enjoyed our Italian home and you are most welcome to come back next year! Our Villa has been designed, built and is now run as a home where children can enjoy themselves safely. We are glad you and your family felt at home and enjoyed the pool and sunshine as well as being entertained with the games and DVD's. Thank you again. Halley

Piece of Heaven

Our 5th visit to this area and this was the best villa we have stayed in by far. I usually miss some comforts from home but this villa is so well equipped and designed it is home from home and a fantastic pool. Very well located between a number of lovely towns with very easy driving on quiet country roads. The first week was just my wife and I so a rather expensive luxury for two but in the second week another family of three joined us and the cost shared by two families is an absolute bargain for a villa of this standard. A surprisingly undiscovered part of Italy which is loved by the locals but with limited numbers of tourists which adds to its charms. If you have not been - GO!

The Villa is situated to the south east of Cisternino and north west of Ostuni. This region of Southern Italy is known as Puglia, the 'High plains of the Murge'. As you leave the coast road and come inland you start to climb up in to the High plains (which is approx 400m above sea level). Once at the top you will find all the towns perched on top of the hills white washed and very beautiful. The property is located between Cisternino and Ceglie Messapica off the road to Ostuni. The Villa is an ideal base to explore Ostuni 'La Citta Bianca', Martina Franca, the incredible limestone caves at Castellana Grotte, the famous trulli at the World Heritage site of Alberobello or even the beautiful city of Lecce with its renowned baroque architecture (kicknamed 'Florence of the South', approx 1 hours drive). Excellent beaches at Torre Carne, Lido Bosco Verde or Pilone are approximately 25 minutes drive.
