Why Gillie Wright & Shirley Ellis chose San Vito dei Normanni

After four years of extensive re-building and restoring Casa Uccelli is a mix of old trullis and new trullis, with all the modern conveniences and comforts needed for a trouble free holiday, set in a tranquil and quiet olive grove yet not isolated with villas and Masserias close by. For those who are seeking this mix, you could go a long way to finding such a great place to base yourselves and explore beautiful Puglia. After doing so you can come back to your own private home from home with its great swimming pool, BBQ area, terraces,and olive trees to relax by.

What makes this Villa unique

Peace and quiet but only a short distance from good restaurants and beautiful old towns. Live in the old trullis and enjoy all modern conveniences at the same time. All ages catered for and the ability to make as much noise as you like without disturbing the neighbours!

                                                                  We were made to feel very welcome by the property managers who greeted us, showed us through the property and gave us plenty of local information. They took us to the local supermarket for essential supplies.

                                                                  The pool was lovely and clean and kept that way by regular visits from the managers.

                                                                  The whole family had a brilliant holiday including my 86 yr old grandmother.

                                                                  I would recommend to anyone this property. The owners and managers were very friendly and helpful.

                                                                  Thank you.

                                                                  We hope to see you again soon.

                                                                  Perfect holiday accommodation for large a family

                                                                  Danielle O.

                                                                  We had a wonderful time during our two week stay. The accommodation was lovely and the pool was a real luxury the whole family (six of us) enjoyed. The weather was very warm and so plenty of time was spent relaxing and swimming to keep ourselves cool.

                                                                  The accommodation was an ideal base for us to visit Lecce, Alberobello and Matera as well as some more local towns. We also made a couple of visits to the beach and the caves, Grotte di Castellana, made a great day out. The accommodation is close to the airport which is convenient and the supermarkets and local shops meant we were well stocked throughout our stay.

                                                                  I’d also like to say how wonderful we found Jackie and Kevin to be. They were there when we arrived to show us around the accommodation, changed bedding etc after the first week and gave us suggestions on places to visit. They were so friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Our youngest daughter unfortunately got an ear infection whilst we there (these things happen) but Jackie and Kevin took us to the local doctor and Jackie even came into the appointment with us. It is fair to say our Italian isn't great and their assistance made what could have been a tricky situation, very straight forward.

                                                                  We really enjoyed our stay here and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone!

                                                                  - Richard & Danielle

                                                                  A perfect holiday in a beautiful trulli- with pool

                                                                  Anonymous

                                                                  We had a fantastic time at Casa Uccelli. Staying in a beautiful trulli house with all mod cons and home comforts was just perfect for all the family- Ma Pa and six young adults all around thirty years old but often regressing to 17 or 18 on holiday.

                                                                  Great location- the house is on its own but not far from major attractions and the little local towns we visited such as Oria were good for an evening stroll and a gelato. Matera was the longest run we did but we went twice and the second time caught the sassi all lit up for the evening- totally stunning.

                                                                  The house is managed by a really lovely couple and we were able to order food in advance of our arrival and also a meal to be waiting for us- perfect start to a great holiday.

                                                                  The house was spotless and the pool attended to every few days and we had contact with the managers throughout our stay so felt very well cared fot.

                                                                  Location
