About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Full bathrooms, 2 Full Kitchens, Sleeps 8, Pool, Sea View

A dream like setting hillside Italian Villa with a view of the Adriatic Sea and a private infinity pool. Our villa is situated on an active olive tree grove and produces our own family's olive oil, 'Vito and Joe's Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil'. This home was purchased 10 years ago and is fully renovated and restored with all modern amenities including a washing machine, all new plumbing including a well, new kitchens, one upstairs and one downstairs, two full bathrooms, a new patio with garden and fountain, and breathtaking views of the Adriatic Sea. The home is situated in a small town called Vico del Gargano which means Village of Gargano and the Villa is a 5 min drive from the village. There is a sand beach 5 min from the villa which has a small restaurant and beach umbrellas, lounge chairs for rent by the day or week. The home is in the region of Puglia or Apulia, and is known for beautuful settings, weather, olive oil, wine, and cheeses. The home is cared after by Luigi and Valentina, who have a small home only minutes away, to meet you upon arriving and to help you and guests get comfortable in your new home. The views from within the home are spectacular, with a terrace and long traditional wooden table to eat, relax, read, and take in one of the most beautiful sites in the world. All linens, beach towels, and paper products are provided. You also have an ironing board, iron, hair dryer, curling iron, as well as all kitchen utensils, plates, pans, stove, two refrigerators, and almost anything else you will need to just relax and enjoy.

There are endless activities for you and your family to enjoy in the surrounding villages, and total privacy at the private home for those just wanting to unplug and get lost for awhile.

Know it is paradise on earth for a romantic stay, adventurous couple or group, or an awesome family vacation with daily adventure and recreational fun!

The Italian villa is near Bari, Foggia, and Rome, with only a few hour drive.

Travel to the Villa thru Rome which is a three and a half hour drive or thru Bari which is a 3 and a half hour drive. I found the travel thru Rome much easier as the drive may be longer but the travel and connection to get to Bari was much longer than the hour you save driving. The drive from Rome is very easy where it is best to travel directly East and then south. Be sure to rent or bring a GPS.

About Joe Borio

I am from Cazenovia, New York and I am a doctor, a chef, and a consultant. Our oil from the farm is sold commercially by the name, Vito and Joe's Extra Virgin Italian Olive Oil, and is named after my two boys. I have an online cooking show, Cooking Italian with Joe, and shoot videos for my show from this location very often. My family is from Italy and I wanted to own a home there as a place for my family always to go back to.

Joe Borio purchased this villa in 2005

Why Joe Borio chose Foggia

This home is between where my mother and father's families are from. So it is a perfect place to ensure easy travel for family get together's.

What makes this villa unique

The home has a view of the Adriatic Sea from your own infinity pool, a warm and sunny climate, and the most beautiful views of the earth I have ever seen. The smell of the country side is filled with wine, olives, and the sea.

Beautiful Private Italian Villa with Pool View Adriatic Sea Puglia Apulia

Beautiful Villa and the Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The owner Joe and the caretaker Luigi were fantastic. Great communication and a warm welcome to our family. The home and area was more beautiful than described. We loved our trip and our stay at this beautiful Villa on the coast of the Adriatic Sea! The view from the home is breathtaking with farmlands and quaint Village, gorgeous beaches, cultural visits and shopping all around. The home was "Old Italy" updated with dramatic views and pool overlooking the sea, olive orchards, bocce court and best of all welcoming neighbors and Village to make it a true "Italian" adventure for our family. Cant wait to go again next summer

the best 10 days of my life

  • 5 of 5

It was a beautiful house and guest house with and amazing balcony to look at the view while eating your meals. Very comfortable living space with lots of room. The listing description was very accurate and the place was very clean and everyone was very nice. There is a cute town close by that has awesome restaurants and sites to see. The beach is also right down the road. The pool and the view behind it where amazing nothing I've seen even compares. There's a brand new bocci court that is amazing. The whole feel of the villa and the view is just undecribeable. From the infinite pool you can see the Adriadic sea and the sunsets and rises make it even better. I can't even put into words how amazing this place is.

My dream come true in Italy!

  • 5 of 5

This place was everything I had hoped for and the view was spectacular. You can see the Adriatic Sea from the beautiful pool. The owner was great to deal with and the caretaker "Luigi" was extremely helpful. You must see to truly believe the beauty in this place.

The surrounding area is rich in olive trees, vineyards, beaches, horse farms for riding, shops, markets, antiquing, site seeing, and so much more. The home is truly a home situated on the side of a large steep hill with gorgeous and panoramic views.
