I had an amazing holiday staying at Villa Mandorle. It was delightful visiting the beautiful and serene countryside in such an unspoilt part of Italy .
It is an exhilarating drive along the coast from the airport and up into the hills. Passing on the way, olive groves , vineyards , charming quintessential Trullis and rich red fields divided by ancient stone walls .
Arriving at Villa Mandorle it is heavenly for a while to walk in the garden amongst the flowers, trees and herbs soaking up the breath- taking views all around .
The Villa is very welcoming , full of Italian charm and elegance topped with the most wonderfully arched ceilings .
Then to sit with a cool drink in the gazebo peacefully watching the sun set in the hills behind the stunning swimming pool . Divine !
The most beautiful tranquil setting in rural Italy yet only a short drive to the nearest town that has absolutely everything you may require. The villa is very comfortable and homely and a real touch of Italian architecture. The outside area and pool is very pretty and spacious. Inside the villa it is furnished to a high standard with everything you would have at home. The owner gave a first class level of care and attention to our stay and answered any questions very promptly. We were certainly made to feel very welcome in what feels like a home from home. Would highly recommend this property to couples or families who want a very comfortable, relaxed break but with perfect access to the wonderful surrounding area. Local markets a plenty with fresh food and wine and prices are so low you can really budget if need be but will not scrimp on the standard. We would highly recommend this villa and will be returning again for another piece of Italian tranquility.
Multo Bellisimo! Grazie Milli for everything. The holiday started with such a fantastic and very helpful Ali, who clearly wants your time in her home to be the very best it can be. She is very happy to help and no question is too much trouble.
The Villa Mondorle is fully equipped and in the most idyllic setting with views to die for. We had great fun around the swimming pool which was beautifully clean and in an amazing spot. You can just relax and unwind from the pressures of life at home.
Puglia is a fabulous area to discover with happy welcoming people, spectacular scenery, meandering roads that lead you to exciting towns where you can watch the world go by with the odd prosecco or two! Just bliss and we will definitely be back for more - thank you - fabulouso
We stayed for four days towards the end of September, and it was a fantastic break.
The property itself is very traditionally styled in keeping in with the surrounding area. It was clean, and everything seemed new.
Inside was spacious, with a large living room and kitchen/dining room. The property had all the modern facilities you could need (WiFi, washing machine etc).
The outside is where we spent most of our time, enjoying the pool area and patio areas for lunches and breakfasts (two areas for this, which was nice).
The location itself was extremely peaceful, no noise or light pollution in the evening. Fantastic night sky!
A car is a must if you want to get out and about, a highlight was the Cisternino town (5 minutes away). Authentic restaurants all over the town, and all very reasonably priced.
Highly recommended, and would visit again.
We have just spent a fantastic few days at Villa Mandorle, and I only wish we could have stayed longer! The house itself is beautiful and comes with everything you could need for a break in the sun, including wifi, dishwasher and washing machine.
House aside, we fell instantly in love with the lifestyle Villa Mandorle has to offer: our days started with breakfast outside on the patio, followed by a trip into Cisternino (~10 mins drive, you need a car) to pick up food from the local market and wander through its picturesque streets and alleyways. When we got back we would have a light lunch and then make the most difficult decision of the day: whether to spend the afternoon relaxing by the pool or down by the local beach (~20 mins drive). The decision wasn't made any easier by the gorgeous views one gets lounging by the pool, nor the presence of a second gazebo! We typically headed back into Cisternino for dinner - there are countless local trattorias, ristorantes, masserias and pizza places to choose from and you won't go far wrong whichever you go to. One particular highlight was the tiny crepe shop tucked away down a little alley; another was Bar FOD underneath the clock tower in the main square.
Ali was very helpful in the run up to our holiday and answered all our questions promptly, while the woman who greeted us on arrival (apologies - I forgot her name!) did a great job of showing us all the practical stuff one needs to know. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Villa Mandorle to a friend and hope I can come back here again.
This is a lovely villa set in the hills outside Cisternino ( 10 min drive). The location has the most amazing views in a totally quiet setting, even the pool has a wonderful view. The house is very comfortable with good bedroom accommodation set off an openplan, very spacious new kitchen/diner and large sitting area. Great place to cook and then eat on the amazing terrace.
The bedrooms are all well furnished and comfortable.
This was my second stay in Villa Mandorle, the first being before the new building. The first stay was lovely and I would have happily returned, but since the extension the place has been transformed.
The new kitchen area has completely opened up the house giving it so much living space making holidaying with a large family very comfortable. I would also like to say that if you have never visited you would not know it had been extended as it has been done so well and in keeping with the original property !
The grounds of the property are beautiful and pool area just lovely with plenty of loungers. The property is very well stocked so you are never running out of things
The surrounding area offers some really lovely walks and once in the car there are many gorgeous towns and villages to visit, Go on market day as you'll get all you need there.
All in all I had a fantastic holiday and would recommend Villa Mandorle to anyone. Thank you you 😄
