Why Bob & Helga chose Brindisi

Our villa is on a hilltop overlooking Ostuni and the the Valle D'Itria. The property had been lived in until the 1960s and was in need of major renovation. Fortunately, the nephew of the owners was now an architect and he shared our vision of an authentic renovation but using modern materials. The old trullo for example was used as a 'palmento' - a room where grapes were pressed and the juices stored for wine-making. All of this was lovingly preserved and is now a popular feature of the house. We were keen to preserve the old traditions too and now include almond and olive harvesting among our autumn routines. This local produce is on display in the villa and makes the ideal gift for friends. We may not be able to identify precisely the exact trees of origin, but we can certainly guarantee that everything is home produced.

What makes this villa unique

Being on a hilltop, we do not suffer the sometimes oppressive heat of the Summer months and instead enjoy a unique micro-climate where warm Spring and Autumn weather combines with the hot Summer to give a long season for holiday visitors. The villa is secluded and tranquil, yet is near enough to local facilities so as not to be isolated. The nearby village of Casalini for example, boasts 3 small mini-markets, a bar, a post office with ATM, a petrol station and 4 superb restaurants, each of them offering a different dining experience. Most guests will spend the first few days of their holiday relaxing by the pool before venturing out into the great wide world of Puglia. We provide advice and suggestions and regularly book restaurants and guided tours for our guests, all at no extra cost as we are keen to make your stay as enjoyable as possible without of course being over-intrusive. Because we value your privacy, we do not live on site during your stay, so that you can enjoy the full, peaceful holiday experience with your friends and family.

We look forward to welcoming you to Puglia.

Fantastic, peace, space, service and location

  • 5 of 5

This was our sixth year at Otto Sentieri, and every year it gets better! We love the quiet location and the acres of olives and almonds in which the Trullo is set. Bob and Helga are perfect hosts, on hand swiftly if needed. The pool (cleaned every other day) is excellent and the accommodation very comfortable.

Excellent stay at Otto Sentieri

  • 5 of 5

We've had an excellent stay at Otto Sentieri. Bob and Helga are a delight

- very helpful and nothing is too much trouble! The villa is clean and

comfortable and had everything we needed. Also the location is beautiful,

quiet and the perfect place for a 'get away from it all' retreat.

Prachtige plek, sfeervolle woning!

  • 5 of 5

Net terug van een heerlijke vakantie in Puglia, mede dankzij deze hele fijne woning! Het huis is heel rustig gelegen op een prachtige olijfgaard met zwembad. Alles wat je nodig hebt, is aanwezig. Ook voor onze 2 kleine meisjes werd alles klaargezet; babybedjes, kinderstoel, aankleedkussen… Het huis is schoon, goed verzorgd en heel sfeervol. Bob en Helga zijn goed te bereiken en geven je goede tips en veel informatie! Wij komen hopelijk snel weer terug! Dank voor de goede zorgen.

Shine on you crazy diamond

  • 5 of 5

This anthem of Pink Floyd applies to our stay in Otto Sentieri: nice and complete house, quiet and romantic hideaway, smooth swimming pool to chill, close to all beautifull typical Puglian villages (and restaurants) and last but not the least Bob and Helga: very helpfull but not pushy hosts where you can only dream of!

Normally we visit a place and house only once, but fot this chilly place where dolce far niente rules, we really like to make an exception!

Diamonds are a girl's best friend, but this diamond is everybody's friend!

Great location, perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

Propert is in a lovely, peaceful location. Accommodation has all the facilities you can think of, children were ecstatic that the wifi reception was good but the lure of the pool trumped even that! Close to Cisternino and Ostuni. Also good base to venture further. Bob and helga were a fountain of knowledge on everything local. Couldn't have asked for a nicer introduction to Puglia. Am sure we will return in the not too distant future!

We are ideally situated in the cool hills between the beaches of the Adriatic and the historic sites of the Itria Valley, including the UNESCO World heritage site of Alberobello. The area is renowned for its local wines from Locorotondo as well as its gastronomic restaurants, many of them family run. Long sandy beaches in Torre Canne and Torre Guaceto are punctuated by secluded rocky inlets and isolated coves. Beach side restaurants and bars offer delicious seafood snacks. The early evening passeggiata typifies the social and cultural spectacle on view throughout the region. There are many open air theatres in historic town squares. Villa Otto Sentieri is ideally situated to profit from the sun, the sea, the rolling hills, and the markets and restaurants offering fresh local produce. It is a short drive from the airports of Brindisi and Bari and also the hypermarkets in Mesagne and Fasano. Daily shopping is done in our local village which also boasts 4 excellent restaurants.
