About the property

Situated in proximity of the sea and few kilometres close to historical and touristic sites such as Castel del Monte (10min), Trani (10min), Polignano a Mare, Alberobello, Matera (45min), Villa Gioia is a unique and charming destination where to spend the holidays.

This magnificent noble villa is a historic holiday residence built in 1799 by the Gioia family. In a prestigious setting, you can enjoy an exclusive experience immersed in the green of the Apulian countryside.

Villa Gioia is developed on two floors.

On the ground floor you will find an impressive entrance hall, a grand living room with a fireplace and a flat-screen TV with satellite channels, a studio room, a dining room, a large kitchen with a courtyard and a veranda equipped with a dining table. The sleeping area located on a separate wing of the ground floor, is composed by 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. There is also an extra service room with 2 bunk beds and internal bath.

Upstairs there is a lounge with frescoed ceilings, 2 double bedrooms with an internal bathroom and 2 other bedrooms served by a separate bathroom. All bedrooms and bathrooms have direct access to a large sunny terrace.

The villa is equipped with free WiFi and ample parking spaces for guests.

A vast park with centuries-old trees and a land of 40,000 sqm with orchard and olive trees finally surround the property.

Villa Gioia is a 5-minute drive from Corato, a nice town with several typical shops and restaurants. Bari International Airport is only a 20-minute drive away and a transfer service is available on request. The sea is 12 km away and is easily reachable in 10 minutes by car.

Villa Gioia is particularly suitable for groups of friends or families who want to spend their holidays together in a location of great charm, located in a strategic position to discover the beauty of Puglia's natural, historical and artistic beauties.

What a fabolous place.

  • 5 of 5

When we at last found the villa we had a fantastic stay. The old magnificient villa was for us modern stressed people a restplace for our souls and besides the large bedrooms, the kitchen became the central point for our group. How wonderful to see all the genuine details in all the rooms and if the radio in the ”office” is for sale, i,ll buy it. Nothing were ”styled”, just a pure and historic place that made our group happy. And a special thanks to the serviceminded staff. We will shurely come back to visit again.

Merveilleux séjour

  • 5 of 5

Venant de Paris, nous avons effectué un merveilleux séjour dans cette région au décor magnifique. La Villa Gioia grande et spacieuse nous a plu, correspondant exactement aux photos présentées sur le site et au descriptif. Le propriétaire très gentil, fut très compréhensif et arrangeant. Nous tenons à le remercier car c'est grâce à lui que nous avons pu découvrir cette région de l'Italie.

Rosanna également très gentille fut très proche de nous durant tout le séjour veillant à ce que nous ne manquions de rien. Un grand merci à elle pour son amabilité. Nous recommandons cette location à toute personne intéressée. Quant à nous, c'est avec plaisir que nous n'hésiterons pas à revenir. Encore Merci
