Overview

About the property

2 bedroomed villa (sleeps 4) or 5 with pull out bed

Villa Gialla is set in a quiet Contrada, very close (within 3km) to the pretty town of San Vito Dei Normanni. The villa is also very close to the beaches on the Adriatic sea and Brindisi Airport. Set within an acre of land comprising of olive, fruit and nut trees with ample secure parking. Perfect for anyone wanting a very peaceful holiday, with a central location, to explore and experience the unspoilt region of Italy and sample a taste of real Italian country living. The large covered veranda is perfect for relaxed outdoor dining. The accommodation has undergone a complete renovation, new bathroom and kitchen, double glazed windows and air/heat conditioning units in every room. The area has great restaurants, bars and supermarkets where you can sample the local delights and specialities.

Puglia is a beautiful area to visit with lots to see and do. Many local markets and hypermarkets, banks, fresh fruit and vegetable stalls to sample the local produce. There are numerous restaurants to sample the delicious Italian cuisine. Fantastic panoramic views all within easy driving distance from the villa. If you are looking for something authentic, very Italian; have you been searching for something charming and different, then Puglia is for you. It is a land of extraordinary colours and wonderful variety. Here you will find an undulating plateau of rich red earth, dark green pine-forested hillsides, silvery green olive groves and lush vineyards; sparkling white labyrinths of towns with historic centres which seem to glisten in the sun; grey and natural hues of the Baroque churches and ancient castles; and all against a backdrop of blue Mediterranean sea and sky.' Brindisi Airport is a 15 minute drive away. Bari Airport 1 hour away. Car essential to explore all there is to see.

Villa and surrounding areas: The accommodation has recently undergone a complete renovation, new bathroom and kitchen, double glazed windows and air/heat conditioning units in every room. The accommodation is on one level, easily accessible for children and people with mobility problems (one small step onto the veranda).The large covered veranda is perfect for relaxed outdoor dining. Set within an acre of olive, mature fruit and nut trees. Outside table and chairs provided under the covered veranda for alfresco eating. Plenty of secure parking.

San Vito Dei Normanni town centre 10 mins away. Ostuni (White City) 15mins away, all with great restaurants and shops. Aberobello 45 mins away is a must to see . Visit the local zoo safari and water world in Fasano 45 mins away. All distances are approx. Within a short drive, there is the World Heritage site at Alberobello,with its Trulli's (cone shaped buildings), the white hilltop towns of Cisternino, Ostuni and Locorotundo, the bustling town of Martina Franca

Coastal/Beach: The beautiful beaches along the Adriatic coast all within 20 mins drive from the villa.

Puglia has the longest coastline of any Italian region, and close to Ceglie there are beautiful sandy beaches and quiet rocky coves, lapped by the clean blue waters of the Mediterranean.

About Derek Watmough

My wife, daughter and I love coming to our villa throughout the year to relax and get away from the pressures of life back in the UK.

Our daughter is now 19 years old, still gets excited when we say we are going and enjoys practicing her Italian on the locals and chilling out in the pool or on the veranda, pray it may continue for a good few years yet, before boys take over :-((((

Derek Watmough purchased this villa in 2007

Why Derek Watmough chose San Vito dei Normanni

We chose this villa because of its peaceful location.

Great Villa suitable for all ages to relax and explore the region

  • 5 of 5

We had really positive communication and information about the rental property during the booking process. Excellent directions from the airport and greeted by the property manager.

When we arrived the property was spotlessly clean and just as described. The property provides privacy and is in its own grounds planted with fruit trees and provides a space to relax, dine and barbecue at leisure.

The is an excellent base to explore the region. The roads are quiet and stress free for driving around and the villa has great access to major roads.

The Villa is only 20 minutes drive from Brindisi airport and a ten minute drive to some beautiful sandy beaches.

We stayed with two teenage boys and had plenty of room to kick a ball about, play boules and splash in the pool without worrying about neighbours and other guests.

As regular renters some of the really positives things about this villa rental included - plenty of bedding and towels, washing machine very clean and useable kitchen.

We would definitely book this rental again and recommend to friends and family.

Comfortable villa in delightful setting

  • 5 of 5

The villa is set in it's own beautiful and secluded grounds, including laden fruit trees and masses of vividly bright morning glory. We thoroughly enjoyed having leisurely breakfasts and evening meals on the large terrace and dipping into the pool which was bigger than it appeared in the photos. The agents, Tina and Richard were very friendly and welcoming and we appreciated their kind touches including freshly picked flowers in all the rooms and bowls of fruit. With a car and sat nav, we found the location to be a convenient base for exploring all of Puglia. Locally, we thought the upstairs restaurant in San Vitoria to the left of the main church, was very good and we also enjoyed the atmosphere and restaurants in nearby Mesagne. We would highly recommend this villa to anyone who wants to get away from it all in a relaxing environment while at the same time being within easy reach of beaches and places of interest.

Excellent villa in Puglia.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was in excellent condition, modern, in its own grounds and in a quiet neighbourhood.

Well placed for seeing this part of Puglia.

Well looked-after, and an excellent meet-and-greet service at the airport.

Holiday Chill Out July 2009

  • 5 of 5

This is the ideal place if you want somewhere to chill in a quiet location (under the hot Italian sun). The villa is very clean, with a well-equipped kitchen and a modern bathroom.

Due to the remote location, you will need a car if you want to travel to the beaches and other attractions. The safari and theme park is a must, as well as the picturesque Alberobello. We did take a stroll into San Vito Dei Normanni which took 20 minutes, but you can have a well deserved chilled glass of Prosecco sat in the main plaza.

Large supermarkets are only a 10-15 minute drive away and there are plenty of restaurants in San Vito.

Will definitely be going back, as it was nice to experience a traditional Italian town.

Belle et agréable maison, mais quelques points à améliorer.

  • 4 of 5

La maison est agréable et fonctionnelle, les pièces sont spacieuses et dans un bon état général. La maison est jolie et située dans un quartier calme.

Les extérieurs sont plaisants, la propriété est assez grande et la piscine est plus grande que sur les photos environ 4mx4m. Le salon de jardin et les chaises longues en plastiques sont dans un état assez moyen.

Les petits défauts selon moi sont, le réfrigérateur de petite taille sans partie congélation (dans un pays aussi chaud les glaçon serait utile...), la literie de la chambre parental assez moyenne (celle des deux lits jumeaux est correcte), et la propreté générale à notre arrivée n'était à la mesure de nos attentes.

Pour résumer, la maison à un bon rapport qualité/prix mais a quelques défauts facilement corrigeable.

Owner's Response: Je vous remercie pour votre commentaire. Nous prenons à bord de la table et les chaises à l’extérieur. Malheureusement, pas de place pour un congélateur mais beaucoup d’espace de frigo pour l’eau et des boissons froides.
