About Richard & Noirin Bates

We are an Anglo-Irish couple who fell in love with Puglia and bought our first "Place in Puglia Villas" property ( Villa Sun Beach) as our holiday home when our family was young.

Our love of the area grew and when our children flew the nest, so we decided to relocate here to Puglia in 2006, and moved here once all our arrangements were finished..

We sold our house and business back home, restructured Villa Sun Beach and bought additional properties over the next few years, and each one has been transformed into beautiful holiday rentals for our guests, with many families returning to us year after year and becoming friends in the process.

From April when we start taking bookings, until October when we close up for the winter, we dedicate ourselves to making sure that your hard earned and well deserved holiday goes as perfectly as possible and as we live just 10 minutes away from any of our properties, we are always on call if required during your stay.

For our guests we can organise extra services such as In-Villa dining, In-Villa Italian cookery lessons, inshore sea fishing and coastal excursions, winery and wine-tasting tours, bicycle hire as well as restaurant recommendations and advise on excursions and attractions, full details of these and all other infomation are in each of the properties In-Villa guidebook and also on our website at

Richard & Noirin Bates purchased this villa in 2003

Switch off, breathe, relax

  • 5 of 5

From the point of our initial enquiry to the moment we left the property the owners, Richard and Noirin, could not have been more helpful, friendly and supportive. They answered our endless questions and queries, provided great local knowledge and were easily contactable.

We stayed for two weeks and could happily have stayed much longer.

The property and the lovely grounds offered everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing holiday. The pool is a good size and is well maintained with plenty of space to catch the sun all day long. Additionally, there is a covered seating area to cool off and a great BBQ which we used fully.

Although we spent more time around the pool than we had planned as it was so relaxing, we also ventured out to Matera, Gallipoli, Lecce, Otranto amongst others and the villa was a good central location for these trips out.

Whether you want to sit around the pool or explore Puglia, this is a great venue to be based at with owners who genuinely care that you have a good experience.

Lovely villa with pool near the sea!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Sun Beach for one week in August. Richard and Noirin were superb and gave us a warm welcome, they were very helpful and knowledgeable. The villa was of a good standard, the kitchen was very well equipped and the pool area is lovely and fruit is readily available from the garden. The villa was very clean, the beds all very comfortable with good mattresses. We received a well stocked food hamper on arrival, this included a lovely bottle of vino rosso!

This is a great location to explore Puglia and a information file is there providing details of places to visit and places to eat/drink etc. The beach is at the end of the road, about 400 metres, with a bar and commercial beach if you want a sunbed further along the beach. We all enjoyed our stay in Villa Sun Beach and will return. Thank you Richard and Noirin!

Nice villa close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week in villa Sun Beach. The villa was very clean and very well equiped. The owner provided great service. The welcome basket was very generous, including wine, beer, bread, fruit, cheese, ham etc.. Lecce and Brindisi less than half an our away by car. The beach a 5 minute walk. The sunday morning market in Casalabate is very recommended for fruit, vegs and fish.

Fabulous villa in Lendinuso

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay. The villa was spacious for our three children and the large pool and gardens meant they had room to play and roam around safely. They loved picking the different fruits that were in season in the garden.

Villa was spotlessly clean. Owners were extremely helpful and provided a super welcome basket and information pack. This was invaluable helping us immensely to get the most from our stay.

We would love to return.

Fanatsic relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a lovely 2 week stay in Villa Sun Beach. The villa had everything you could wish for and was very spacious. The beds were comfortable and the air con worked well.

The pool was well maintained and was lovely to sit and sunbathe around. The town in which the villa is situated is not extensively developed and was typical Italian with very few tourists. This suited us fine.

Richard and Norrin are good hosts, we had one minor problem that was rectified immediately.

A lovely place to stay, would highly recommend.
