Maria purchased this Villa in 2015
Why Maria chose Municipio 1
For its valuable effects on mind and body. Its garden rich of flowers and cacti has a regenerating effect on spirit. The private layout of the property joined with its pool, garden and different solutions to help you relaxing makes a striking combination on wellbeing. After resting at the villa I always enjoy a visit to Polignano a Mare or Ostuni delighting myself with the amazing food of local restaurants.

A perfect villa for our party of two couples. Wonderfully equipped. We loved the pool and the outside space was lovely, especially the roof terrace. Our host Michelle could not have been more helpful - he even took us to a large supermarket on our first day to do a big shop so that we didn’t have to carry heavy items from the local shop - thank you once again Michelle. 100 yards to the sea front and the bus stop was just around the corner. We bought wonderful fresh fish from the local fish shops and bread from the bakery. 25 minute walk or 5 minutes on the bus into Torre a Mare. The wine shop, Bar 12/ and Sydney’s bar all excellent as was Restaurant Nicola. Buses were only 1€ per journey - amazing! We were able to explore by local bus and then trains from Bari. (Torre a Mare train station was too far out and not easily reached on foot.). Highly recommend visits to Bari, Trani, Polignano a Mare, Alberobello and Lecce. Would not recommend Mola di Bari. We were sorry not to fit in Matera so will have to come back 😀�
Perfect holiday home
Beautiful villa - many extra touches- lots of thought to provide everything you could need - 4 adult and 1 year old twins all had an amazing time - wonderful memories created - thank you
Villa Isabella was perfect for our stay of 4 adults and 2 children. The location is great. Not far to walk to Torre a Mare, or catch the local bus which runs regularly and takes less than 10 minutes. It was about 30 minutes on the bus into Bari. This was a relaxing holiday we decided to forego the car as we knew in August we would not be wanting to travel around and certainly our two grandsons would not be up for it. We didn't need it, Torre a Mare has some great restaurants, a supermarket which is well stocked and bakeries. It is very Italian, which is exactly what we wanted. There are also plenty of places to buy fresh fish along the road from the villa. There is also a restaurant about 5 minutes walk. The villa is well thought out and very comfortable with plenty of outside space. The pool was lovely.
Maria was there to meet us and very welcoming and helpful. Michelle was at the end of the phone when our driver could not find the location and their cousin Angelo was also on hand if we needed him (which luckily we didn't). We can highly recommend this villa and would have no hesitation in holidaying there again.
Super mooi huis op mooie locatie.
Dit is een super mooi huis. Helemaal compleet ingericht met in iedere ruimte airconditioning. Mooi terras voor het huis, waar zich ook de veilige parkeerplaatsen voor 2 auto's bevinden. Aan de achterkant een mooi terras bij een heerlijk zwembad. En super mooi dakterras met eettafel en loungeset met uitzicht op zee, waar het 's avonds heerlijk vertoeven is. Prijs kwaliteit verhouding is goed.
Het huis ligt op ongeveer 100 meter van de zee met een rotsstrand. In de nabije omgeving lekkere verse vis te koop en goede restaurants. Het is een goede uitvalsbasis voor bezoek aan Bari, Alberobello, Matera e.d.
De eigenaresse is zeer vriendelijk en hulpvaardig. Ze is telefonisch goed bereikbaar. Ze reageert heel snel op vragen en doet er alles aan om het haar gasten naar de zin te maken. Dit is een huis waar we graag nog een keer teruggaan!!
We had a great experience staying with Michele & Maria, the villa lived up to our expectations, its was very clean, well equipped and the location is very close to the sea and if you like seafood the local fishmongers are worth a visit. The pool was refreshing, the roof terrace was so pleasant that we could have stayed all day but there is limited shade so be careful. We had a couple of short power outages during our stay but never more than 10-15mins but other than that everything worked as expected. Torre a Mare is a short bike ride away, there were 3 adult bikes available and we enjoyed the restaurants, coffee shops and gelateria's. We were sorry to leave, especially leaving our new friend, the neighbours friendly dog on the adjacent plot who we named Rufus Hound. If you go, then be sure to give him a biscuit from us.
Amazing modern property for a fantastic relaxing holiday
We loved the villa which is modern with amazing outside areas to sit and relax. The pool is great and from the roof terrace you can see the sea which is 100yards away. You can walk down to the the seafront to purchase freshly caught fish each day or a short drive to a number of local supermarkets to top up on whatever else you may need. We loved the villa and highly recommend it.
