Why Owner: A Rogers Property Manager: Puglia Holiday Rentals chose Tarent

This property is the perfect villa to relax and soak up the Puglian countryside and has all the comforts of home.

There is plenty of space for children young and old to run around and when you are ready to venture out there is easy access into the main towns nearby.

What makes this villa unique

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

There is a delightful easy walk to the Galante Cafe/Bar and corner shop, which is approx 15/20 minutes max away via the quiet country lanes, or just 5 minutes taking the quickest road by car.

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.

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!

What a stunning location we found Bella Collina to

  • 5 of 5

What a stunning location we found Bella Collina to be in! Gazing out over the green Valle d'itria from the roof terrace, watching the pink and orange sunset in a darkening deep blue sky, glass in hand, it is hard to imagine a more tranquil and relaxing atmosphere. While the rest of the family get on with a bbq in the spacious and varied outdoor areas, with gorgeous food from local markets, you can see the White cones of the old trulli houses and the rough stone walls fade gradually in the balmy dusk. For me this was the most magical part of our holiday and and one of those memories that you keep with you for a very long time. A very special place.

Great villa with fabulous pool

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Villa Bella Collina with another couple in June and it was a great place for a house party. It is very well set up - fabulous pool, well equipped kitchen, comfortable bedrooms and charming patios for al fresco dining. Set in its own olive grove with spectacular panoramas of the countryside, you can enjoy walking/cycling around the surrounding area. And then by car there are loads of local treasures to explore - we particularly enjoyed the local markets and the evening passagiato around Ostuni, Cisternino and Ceglie. And look out for the local festas - the Italians certainly know how to party!
