Beautiful villa, great pool, fantastic host!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is beautiful, spotlessly clean, comfortable, modern, but still has that old world feel. The pool was great for the kids! The outdoor patio and eating space is wonderful, and we ate outdoors at the villa most nights. Carmelo is a great host, who recommended restaurants, beaches, and places to see. We would text him, and he would respond within minutes. We were welcomed with a lovely basket of wine, cheese, meat, bread, fruit, and coffee, which was such a nice way to start our stay! The neighbourhood is very nice, and we took a walk along the winding road most evenings, and saw the most amazing sunsets! You must have a car, as there are no restaurants or shops within walking distance, but they are only a short 5-7 minute drive away. This was a good location to explore the surrounding towns, and the beach (Adriatic side or Ionian side) was a 30-40 minute drive away.

We stayed as a family of 7 (4 adults and 3 children), and would recommend this property for sure!!

Thank you Carmelo for a wonderful stay in your beautiful villa!! We hope we can return to Puglia one day!!

Amazing villa, beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We visited the villa early August and was extremely pleased with our choice. The villa is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need (the outside kitchen is a fantastic touch!). The decor was lovely and the outside area was kept to a very high standard.

It was close to the town of Martina Franca so access to shops and restaurants was very easy. Carmelo was a great host who was always making sure we had what we needed.

One of the best holidays we have ever had - we had to drag ourselves away!

Superb villa in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 2 year old son for 10 days in May/June 2015. The villa is well located within 5 mins drive of Martina Franca, and within close proximity of Locorotondo, and Alberobello. The villa was fantastic, catered for all our needs, the kitchen provided all we needed for our stay, & was impeccably clean. Carmelo couldn't do enough for us, any hint of a problem and he sorted it quickly, he provided great advice of the local area, places to visit/eat/drink etc. Would thoroughly recommend to friends and family and we are already looking at going back next year. The weather was mid to late 20's during our stay, and whilst the pool was on the cold side, it didn't deter our son jumping in at every opportunity!

Had a wonderful stay with a family of all ages in Villa Faraone.

We have stayed in many vacation apartments and houses before and this one was the best.

The villa and the garden is amazing. Everything is clean and well maintained.

The owner, Carmelo, was wonderful and always ready to help with everything. He was specially helpful when we had some car problems, which we really appreciated.

The area is charming and a little exotic for us North-Europeans. Trullis and olive groves everywhere.

Can't recommend this enough and hope we will return someday.
