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, we decided to relocate here to Puglia in 2006 which is the year that we bought and re-built Villa Nicola.

We then sold our house and business back home, and relocated here and bought additional properties over the next few years.

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.

Villa Gallese was ready in 2010 and we purchased Villa Azzurra in autumn of 2011 which we fully rebuilt and had it ready for guests in the 2012 holiday season.

Each year from April when our guests start arriving, until the end of 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

Lovely Villa with a nice private pool

  • 5 of 5

What makes a great vacation?

1. The house : The villa is just as shown on the pictures. We were just the two of us but it could fit one more couple without any problem. You have everything you need and it's nicely decorated.

2. The pool : Your own private pool in a quiet neighborhood. Nothing more to say.

3. The people : Richard and Noirin were extra helpful and charming. We arrived late in the evening... they were there to greet us with a nice basket with food and wine. We left at 6.45 am... they were there for the checkout. We had a small Wifi problem... Richard was there to fix it. Just perfect.

4. The area : Perfect starting place to go and visit others towns nearby.

That's what made our vacation perfect.

Thanks again Noirin & Richard!

perfectly peaceful in Puglia

  • 4 of 5

Delightful villa tucked away in the Southern Italian countryside but surrounded by some beautiful beaches. The Villa was perfect for us, we were a family of 3 visiting. Everything you would need for your visit, including well needed pool to cool off at the end of the day and a fabulous barbeque for easy dinning. Hosts Richard & Noirin could not have been more welcoming and helpful with recommendations to local restaurants and historic towns and villages to visit. Well maintained and clean. It was lovely of our hosts to leave a welcome basket which consisted of basic ingredients and a bottle of local wine!! Thanks Richard & Noirin

Lovely stay in Villa Azzurra

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Puglia in Villa Azzurra exploring the Southern parts of Puglia. The location of Villa Azzurra is ideal for this. The villa has all amenities you can wish for. The owners of the villa made us feel welcome already before our holiday.

Great For Family

  • 5 of 5

Villa Azzurra was a great location for our family holiday in July 2016 . Pool a bit hit with young kids and Villa was well equipped , modern ,clean and comfortable with Richard and Noirin always available locally if needed. It is located on the edge of a small village ,Torre San Gennaro which has good shops locally for excellent local food and fish. A number of beach options nearby and the sights in Lecce, Ostuni and others all within easy reach by car.

Excellent accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at Villa Azzura which was exactly as described and in excellent condition. Richard and Noirin were there to meet us and give us a tour of the property even though we didn't arrive until quite late at night. They provided a very useful welcome pack which included the usual essentials of tea, coffee, milk, water, bread, butter and jam but some extra's as well to get our holiday off to a good start. We loved the pool which gets the sun all day and is very private and the shaded outdoor eating area was ideal. The location was perfect as it was ideal for visiting the nearby areas of Lecce, Otranto, Locorotanda and Monopoli to name but a few but Otranto was definitely our favourite. We highly recommend the villa and would love to return again.

Thank you Richard and Noirin.

Beautiful two bedroomed Villa, with garden, gated entrance and private swimming pool, situated just minutes walk from the sandy beach. The property has been lovingly renovated and equipped and benefits from a very high level of finish and furnishings.

Located by the seaside village of Torre San Gennaro, a holiday village with year round shops, bars and bakery, etc.. During the summer there are ice cream parlours, pizzerias, restaurants and bars open along the beach front and the seaside piazzas and squares.

Close enough to both Campo di Mare and Lendinuso to also avail of further amenities in each village,

Villa Azzurra is also just 5kms to the town of Torchiarolo, 20 km to the stunning city of Lecce, 15 kms to Brindisi and ideally situated to explore all of Puglia and the Salento.

Holiday where Italians holiday... here in Puglia and experience the real Italy.

Villa Azzurra is the perfect place to relax and unwind, beside the pool, on the beach or exploring the Salento.

Golf: 5 star Acaya Golf Course is approx 25 km from the Villa.
