Lovely villa in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely two weeks here. The villa is in a gorgeous location with a cycle path running behind it, perfect for evening or morning walks. There is a restaurant and mini market about 20 minutes walk away which is great if you don't want to drive to one of the lovely nearby towns but they are well worth driving to. The views from the pool are gorgeous and our boys loved picking the grapes from the vines at the bottom of the garden.

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.

Why Owner: A Rogers Property Manager: Puglia Holiday Rentals chose Ceglie Messapica

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.

We also operate FLEXIBLE START DAYS, providing this does not leave us with a gap we cannot sell.

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.
