Perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation property with a lovely garden (and 2 hammocks), great view from the tower, well equipped and comfortable. We enjoyed having all our meals outdoors - and that was in early may. A perfect beach for the kids (and us) not too far away, friendly locals in the small shops, and very helpful and friendly owners made our stay the perfect holiday! Highly recommendable as a romantic getaway.

It`s a great place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

After a busy working-season, in this house/garden/area we had the best relaxing two weeks we have had for a very long time. The garden is beautiful, the outdoor-shower in hot july is a very fresh alternative to the sea. The clean coast and quiet area around the house gave us lots of energy - the nice sporty and ecology-minded owners are amazingly helpful, gave us a lot of freedom and did their job to keep the plants livable - the garden deserves it! From the rooftop, you have a look to Ostuni and the sea - at night a drink on it under the stars was the best. The upper room in the tower might be a big adventure for children - but also a bit a challenge to climb up - everything seems to be very originally renovated.The owners house with a renovated trulli is just around the corner in the same garden - but far enough to keep yourself independent. Without car you might be a bit lost - but also with bicycle you can discover a lot in the region. In general this place is one of the most romantic places we have visited; if your are up to meet a lot of people, to go partying or jump in the sea directly after you woke up - you might should look for another place - for all the others: it`s a great place to relax!

Rural Beauty

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent place to just step back away from the tourist strip into the heart of rural Puglia and relax. The property is an experience itself, and although you can get away from it all here you're still just minutes from lovely beaches, some superb restaurants, and conveniences. We had a great stay. (For seafood, go to Il Brigantino in nearby St Michele. There's no longer an official tie to the rental property organisers, but it is excellent.)

A week in the Olive groves

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly beautiful property ......set in beautiful surroundings. It has been restored by the owners with great attention to detail and history. The property is well equipped and the beds were very comfortable. A visit to Ostuni is a must ....and Alberobello is very quaint. Torre Santa Sabina is also a very nice place to visit. The owners and agency staff were so helpful as were all the local people in the shops etc. If your looking for a relaxing holiday with a true Italian flavour this is the place!

A paradies among olive trees

  • 5 of 5

My husband, my three-year-old daughter and I stayed three weeks at Torre Spierti.

Torre Spierti is even better than the pictures here. The small tower is sheer beauty. It is indeed a historical building the owners restored with care and taste.

It has two comfortable bedrooms, a small – cosy and functional – kitchen and an entrance. The bathroom is small but, again, functional. There's even one very small bedroom up in the tower: the perfect 'get-away-from-it-all' room. The best of the tower is its rooftops: it overlooks the ocean of olive trees all around, Carovigno and Ostuni, the sea. AMAZING!

In the rent the use of a smaller building beside the tower is included too. It has a beautiful pergola, a bathroom, a kitchen, a closet, a grill, an pizza oven. The pergola can be gracefully lit at night: the perfect place to have dinner.

Free access to the immense garden too, which is IMPECCABLY kept: old olive trees, hammocks scattered around, the organic vegetable garden, the area where the two over-cute donkeys live... There are three adorable labradors which never bark, never come inside the house and simply love being cuddled. There are even two beautiful restored trulli dating back to the 17th C.. They get rented too but, as they face another direction and have a separate car entrance, you will hardly notice other guests. We got to know our neighbours because we actively sought them out otherwise we would have hardly met them at all.

The property is perfect for small children: it is all fenced up (no way to get outside the property without having to open a gate), dogs and donkeys are more than used to see guests and truly love little ones.

The friendliness and care of Maris and Francesco – the owners - deeply influence this beautiful property. They live there too but they are amazingly discreet: you'll have it difficult to actually see them. Having a chat with them is a must though. They know their region extremely well and they are expert runners (if you are a runner too, ask them where to go for a run!). 'Brava gente': good people indeed!

Supermarkets, groceries stores and the like are just 4 km away, in Carovigno. Carovigno is a nightmare in its lower part but, a couple of minutes up the hill, and it will amaze you. More breath-taking villages: Ceglie Messapica, Ostuni, Cisternino, Locorotondo... The best beach: the protected area of Torre Guaceto, a 10-minute ride - all shades of turquoise.

Short for it: this is no fake - it is REALLY beautiful.

Meraviglioso soggiorno in questa dimora. Accogliente, pulitissima, rilassante e posizionata molto bene.Troppo carina la presenza degli asinelli e dei cani coccoloni, mia figlia era impazzita per loro a tal punto da non voler mai uscire per non lasciarli.

Ormai glia ha promesso che la prossima estate torna a salutarli e le promesse vanno rispettate! ;)

Stop here for souvenir photos, you are in the street of the "Gold of the Park '! We recommend the purchase of the oil produced from these olive trees on the nearby farm 'Calemone'. Here over the oil you may get a tomato 'semi-dry' 'Slow Food', preserved in jars with oil and organic without adding any preservatives! At 7000 meters you have 3 partner restaurants.

Famous is the ricotta, curd, the pampanella (fresh cheese) and stracciatella, burrata cheese, caciocavallo, scamorza, cacioricotta. Before leaving do a stock, and even expeditions.
