The villa is situated on the Appian way so perfect if you like cycling and for viewing all that nature has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We all loved the pool, great fruit trees and wonderful surroundings. Fireworks, shooting stars, figs and almonds from the garden, catching lizards and the pool to ourselves.... perfect. Recommend cooking with produce from one of the local markets, cant beat freshness or takeaway from Cafe Galante deli 5 minutes drive away.

Comfortable villa with a great view!

  • 4 of 5

This is a really comfortable and very well equipped house with loads of space and many thoughtful extras - lots of kitchen equipment and cook books, inflatables for the pool, table tennis, basketballs and a hoop, plentiful fruit trees to help yourself to and best of all, a huge pool! It is nicely furnished inside (don't be put off by the rather simple exterior). There are wonderful walks available from the doorstep and Jackie and Sheree are very helpful. We had a lovely stay and enjoyed visiting the attractive nearby towns.

Owner's Response: It is always lovely to hear how much our guests have enjoyed themselves at Villa Bella Collina. The figs at the moment are delicious and great to just pop out in the morning and pick a few for breakfast. The floats and little dingy for the pool has been a hit for both small and big kids (adults) alike! We love to give you as much information as you require to ensure you really discover the beauty of this stunning area of Puglia.

Lovely property in beautiful area

  • 4 of 5

A very spacious, comfortable traditional property in an amazingly beautiful part of Italy. Very well equipped - everything you could need is provided - beach towels a real bonus!! On top of a hill so wonderful panoramic views and a gentle breeze to cool the 30 degree plus heat we experienced. Fantastic pool. So many lovely town nearby to visit. Great local shop for provisions.

Property very clean, cleaners that came half way through our visit were excellent + very thorough.

Jackie was very helpful with any queries.

The only downsides were the very potholed track leading to the villa, and garden/land surrounding pool not at all grassy like photos + very rough/ploughed over, not really suitable for a walk around or sitting on.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay at Villa Bella Collina. The views are amazing. We have now attended to the track and filled in all the pot holes and further guests have had not issues with the track. With regards to the land near the pool this has not been ploughed over and is strimmed and can be walked upon easily. As the season changes from spring to summer so do the temperatures and therefore the grass dies back. Further away in the fields surrounding Villa Bella Collina these have been ploughed and will be flattened again later this year. The Appian Way which is famous for walking and cycling is right on the doorstop and the footpath is well maintained. Most of our guests rave about the walks in the countryside and the surrounding natural beauty.

A wonderful stay in a wondeful place.

  • 5 of 5

Villa Bella Collina is beautifully situated at the top of a hill. This gives fantastic views and also a lovely cooling breeze, which is very welcome in the Puglian heat. The views from the roof are amazing and we loved going up there during our stay. The villa is large, spacious and extremely well equipped. I have never stayed in a holiday villa with such a well equipped kitchen before - there was even a knife sharpener!

The pool was beautiful and really big too. We just loved it. The outdoor poolhouse with toilet, shower and a fridge for drinks was really useful.

Jackie from Puglia Homes was fantastic and I would recommend booking through them just for the terrific customer service. Any little queries were answered immediately and she was really friendly and helpful. Can't recommend highly enough.

Perfect Family hideaway base on top of the hill

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing and wonderful stay at Villa Bella Collina.

Informative and friendly welcome. Jackie sorted a small hiccup with the water during our stay promptly.

The Kids were ecstatic with the pool and inflatables provided, so were we. The olive grove and fruit trees (figs, pears, apples, grapes, almonds) has ripe fruit that we enjoyed.

Well kept tidy and clean throughout. Rooms were spacious and kitchen equipped well enough for us to cook lovely fresh produce from Martina's market. The villa is set on a hill so benefits from a breeze even in the heat and also means you have great 360 view,especially from the roof terrace. At night we had the vista of the heavens and were lucky enough to see firework displays in Locotorondo & Ceglie Messapica.

Martina Franca is beautiful, as is the surrounding countryside and other local towns. Cafe Galante is great local store or place to pick up a very nice lunch.

We will definitely return in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. Villa Bella Collina is a special space for those wanting to get away from it all. We also love the fact you can walk to the local café/bar and corner shop. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Puglia Holiday Rentals

Wiggers' review

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was a lovely one. We were asked wether we wanted an early check in, how wonderful! At arrival Jackie Lear explained everything very nicely and she gave very good tips what to do and what to visit in Puglia. And we did!

The villa was very clean, tidy and spacious. And the pool was really very clean too and had crispy cold water, a must in hot Puglia.

If we come again, we certainly will visit this villa!!!! Thank you Jackie for all your information and printing our flight tickets, super!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review, we understand how precious your holiday is and strive to make it that bit extra special where ever possible. Villa Bella Collina is in a perfect position to just relax by the pool or venture out to explore. The little countryside cafe/bar/shop just five minutes away by car is a real jem for just popping out to.

Beautiful villa in a beautiful area - è perfetto!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this beautiful villa last summer with friends and enjoyed the generous facilities/equipment, clean and easy living spaces and helpful attention of the local and very knowledgeable agent. The pool is well kept and a delight to relax around- pool bathroom really handy to save going indoors- and it has a fridge for cold drinks! This location is brilliant for evening trips into any of three nearby towns- or you can just walk/cycle down to the local shop/ bar which is fun. We plan to be back!
