About Jacquelyn Ashley
I am retired military and am from Colorado. I met my husband while working here in San Vito. He is a Chef and we decided to stay here in San Vito to start a family.
Jacquelyn Ashley purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Jacquelyn Ashley chose San Vito dei Normanni
Location, Location, Location..... its close enough to walk to town but it feels secluded and private because its on a dead end road with no thru traffic. You can reach the beaches and highway access in 7 km and town is 1.5km to the main road.
What makes this Villa unique
We live in town and are available 24/7 in case of emergency or for restaurants reservations. Happy to help. My husband and I reconstructed our home over 4 years. It has been a labor of love and we are happy to invite you to be our guests.

A beautiful villa with wonderfull hosts in a perfect location to see Puglia!! Highly recommend!!
We just finished two perfect weeks at Villa Grace! The home, with a pool, is very beautiful and comfortable with enough room for 2 families and 6 people to live comfortably. Jackie, Vincenzo and Grace are absolutely wonderful and perfect hosts. Vincenzo restored the house and his work is spectacular and made it even more special to stay here. They are very helpful in all you need for directions, restaurant recommendations etc. Most importantly, this beautiful villa is perfectly located to see Puglia. In 15 mins you can be to a beautiful sandy beach on the crystal clear Adriatic Sea. In 10 mins you can be on the state highway to any of the many places you would want to see such as Alberobello and grotto at Castellana,( both are great places for families with small children) Ostuni, Lecce, Bari, Brindisi, Gallipoli,Otranto and the many beautiful small towns such as Martina Franca and Locorotondo. Most of these are within an hours drive with Gallipoli about 1hr and 15 mins away. You then return to this beautiful villa and a dip in the pool to relax and enjoy the setting. Finally, San Vito is a cute small town with everything you need from good restaurants, close by markets and the charm of rural Italy. We very highly recommend Villa Grace as the perfect vacation home!! Thank you so much Jackie, Vincenzo and Grace! We so enjoyed our time with you and look forward to seeing you again!! Janet and Larry
We loved having you stay in our villa. Thanks for taking such good care of our home. Very happy that you enjoyed your vacation. We cant wait to meet again.
Jackie, Vincenzo and Grace
Jackie was awesome from the first moment we met!!!The property is is really well looked after and the pool and seating areas are really well done.
Excellent Vacation,Beautiful Villa,Spectacular Pool
We were so impressed by the Villa. It was spacious and had everything we needed.We arrived late and the fridge was stocked and all the ammenities were supplied. The pool was the highlight and the tropical plants surrounding the pool created the most relaxing atmosphere. It was very private, but close to town and easy access to the highway for day trips. Lots of great sighting and great food and wine. The village has a beautiful downtown with lots of night entertainment.
We had one of our best family vacations and we plan to go back. Thanks to the great owners. Highly recommended!!
Beautiful house and superb pool and outside space
Very well maintained house and grounds. Very quiet and private.
Fantastic sized swimming pool.
Lovely hosts with plenty of information.
San Vito is a lively town reachable by car in just a few minutes. Plenty of places to eat and drink. Would also be able to walk but it was unseasonably hot (over 35 every day) while we were there so we didn't try it. The route is very well lit and not very busy.
Visited a lot of towns in the area by car but also used the train from San Vito (right outside of town and very remote) and also Carovigno train station. You do need a car to get to both.
Shorter trips were around 4 euros each way and Bari was 7 euros each way.
We visited Bari, Lecce, And Polegnino which was our favourite place.
Thank you Jacqui for introducing us to the wine shop !!!!
Eating out was very good value in all of the restaurants, we particularly enjoyed Xfood, Nonnas (which you need to book) and the "butchers shop" (can't remember the name) but Jacqui will know where I mean. We also had some great barbecues.
All in all a fantastic holiday was had by all, a great way to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversaries, Thank you !!!
Anita, Martin, Maria and David
Thanks for taking such good care of our home. Congrats on 30 yrs of matrimony, we are sooo happy you had a great trip. We would love to have you back.
The perfect combination for a relaxing holiday
We loved Villa Grace. It was the perfect combination of a comfortable house, amazing pool area and hosts that went out of their way to make sure guests have a wonderful stay. Our biggest problem was dragging ourselves away from the beautiful, private and quiet pool area so there were many days we gave in and just stayed and soaked it all up. We did spend time in San Vito which is a very non touristy town with lovely squares where we enjoyed morning coffee or evening drinks watching the local life. Nearby Ostuni and brindisi and Lecce which is a little further were interesting and attractive towns. We spent 9 days staying here and loved every minute. Looking forward to returning already.
We truly hope you will come back. We wish you all the best
Gorgeous Villa,Gardens, and Pool Great Location!!!
We had an amazing vacation, the villa exceeded our expectations.The villa was spacious for 6 of us, highly maintained, and had all the comforts and items we needed. The owners were very helpful and kind. The pool was the highlight and the outdoor living area was comfortable and convienent for coming and going into the kitchen being the heart of our vacation. We loved the food and the local village had great restaurants and lots of evening entertainment.The villa was easyly accessable and most evenings we walked into town. Beautiful towns and beaches nearby. And it was great being so close to the airport as the second part of our party arrived later.
We definitely reommended this villa and this town. We look forward to a return visit
