Great location, beautiful home, wonderful welcome

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay in the Villa. The location is great, just a short stroll to the nearby village where there are shops and a few lovely restaurants, and a short drive from a lovely beach and the beautiful towns of Ostuni and Cisternino. The house itself is spacious, clean and very comfortable. We traveled with our 18 month old toddler who was in complete paradise and Annalisa very kindly arranged toys and other baby equipment which added enormously to our enjoyment of the trip. We received an extremely warm welcome from the whole family who were friendly while not being intrusive. Highly highly recommended

There's very little I can add to the previous reviews.

Everything was fantastic.The Semeraro family couldn't have been more welcoming and were always available to offer advice and help when needed. They definitely go above and beyond! The house is in a perfect location to explore all the beautiful places in Puglia and if you just want to relax the pool and grounds are just beautiful. The village of Casalini is just a short stroll away and has a great choice of restaurants and a couple of small supermarkets for fresh bread and meat etc. We stayed for three wonderful weeks and enjoyed ourselves so much we have booked to return in 2016.

Can't wait!

Amazing everything!

  • 5 of 5

Cannot praise this villa or the wonderful Semeraro family enough. We had the most wonderful 11 days and everything was exactly as promised. Nothing was too much trouble for Annalisa, despite the fact she was not so well she made herself constantly available to help us. Annalisa's partner, Nicola, went beyond the call of duty to accompany us to the hospital when our youngest needed treatment - also spending an hour nursing our older toddler in the waiting room when we were in the operating theatre. We will always remember Nicola's kindness and concern in ensuring our daughter received the right treatment, not to mention his diligence and patience driving with us around the town at night to find a pharmacy stocking the drugs we needed. Much praise must be given to the doctor and staff at the Cisternino a&e who surpassed my expectations in many ways too (but hopefully this isn't something most guests will need to worry about!). We thoroughly enjoyed the Semeraro wine (The Opera is brilliant, far too easy to drink...), the easy walk into town and the handy local amenities (the best meal we had was at the Four Leaf Clover restaurant, we arrived unannounced and the restaurant looked closed, we asked for a pizza and were told the oven was not on but we could have pasta or fish - cue the most wonderful, fresh lunch of salad and antipasti (complimentary) and pasta in a really easy setting with staff so happy to accommodate our two little ones) made this one of the most relaxing holidays we have had with our girls, even taking into account the hospital visit. The villa is such a tranquil place and the view is quite mesmerising. Lots of easy day trips and the beach nearby, we just loved our stay. Lunch with the Semeraro family was a particular highlight, beautiful food and generous, welcome company. Thank you Annalisa, Nicola and the rest of the Semeraro family. We are so thrilled we chose your beautiful villa. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Warm and friendly southern Italian welcome

  • 5 of 5

I cannot praise the Semeraro family enough.

Fantastic welcome and a beautiful lunch with 4 generations around the table.

Well presented villa plenty of room with a fabulous pool and garden area.

The option of a stroll into the small village of Casalini and not to have to use the car all the time was a huge bonus. A tour of the family business with our passionate tour guide Pierfranco (sorry if incorrect spelling) led to plenty of wine tasting afterwards. Great fun especially the Operah.

Perfectly placed for exploring further afield with Cisternino ,Ostuni and Martina Franca on the door stop.

Wonderful beaches 20 minutes drive away.

Good luck with the new arrival Annalisa!

See you next year we hope.

The Villa is lovely spacious and has everything you need for an enjoyable stay. The family are warm, friendly and happy to assist in anyway. This village is very convenient with the local amenities only a short walk. Travelling by car is a pleasure and all route are well marked.

Practically perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

WOW - returned only yesterday and want to return - it is like staying with family - the entire Semeraro family are beautiful.

The villa was perfect and the hospitality shown by all incredible. The pool was perfect for staying cool during the heat of the day and the restaurants of Casalini are varied and great value. A morning coffee and pastry at the 'Meeting Bar' is a must!

Pierfraco's tour of the winery showcased the family's passion for wine making (I have to listen to more Mozart).

The local area is great for exploring via car or cycle and a wonderful beach set in a national park is 30 minutes away.

Cisternino comes to life at around 9pm, when it cools down, and is a great experience, however, we rarely moved from the pool.

Am determined to return next year.
