About Mr Halley McCallum
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 many fantastic stays at Villa Vesta and hope you enjoy yourselves here as much as we do.
Mr Halley McCallum purchased this villa in 2005
Why Mr Halley McCallum chose Ostuni
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 aid 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.
