Guestbook comments from the owner

Due to airline delays we arrived well after midnight, but was warmly greeted by Ian who showed us around the villa explaining in detail the alarm system, air conditioning, pool lights etc. Ian had also provided us with a welcome pack, which was much appreciated .

Clear blue skies, brilliant sunshine and a magnificent large pool greeted us the next morning. Villa, spotless and roomy and plenty of shaded area on veranda and beside pool where one can relax and eat outside.

Need a car as area is quiet and peaceful. A GPS is a must as the side roads are many, narrow and not well signed, but that is the beauty of the region. However Carovigno and Ostuni are only a short drive. Carovigno has plenty of restaurants and shops. If you wish to eat at the villa there are good supermarkets in Carovigno. Ostuni is a magical place, especially at night. So many places to see and explore with numerous restaurants, shops, bars and outdoor entertainment which lead to various spectacular views and a 15 centaury cathedral.

Only two draw backs,

Firstly, if the washing machine instruction could have been in English it would have helped immensely.

Secondly, we had to leave after a wonderful week!!!

Our stay was perfect and the owner of the villa made us very welcome..

Hope to return very soon and would recommend this outstanding villa in a most unspoilt part of Italy to anyone.

Great villa with a 15 meter pool

  • 5 of 5

Really good villa very private in the countryside but near to supermarkets and Ostuni. Several good restaurants nearby including 3 with a Michelin star. We enjoyed the table tennis table football and pizza oven.

The owners were very helpful and we had no problems with any of the facilities.

Would definitely recommend this villa especially for the 15meter pool which is unusually large for a 3 bed villa.

Gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at Villa Peppe- in 30 years of villa holidays this is the first time we have ever returned to the same place

The villa is very comfortable and the air-con much appreciated. The pool is big and maintained daily.

As we don't speak Italian Ian was our main contact and was always helpful, including tracking down a sports massage!

The setting is quiet but within easy reach of several little towns with a huge number of bars and restaurants.

Highly recommended.

We could well be back next year...

Exactly as described...perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Ian & Giuseppe were the perfect hosts...nothing was too much trouble and any issues encountered were sorted out very quickly.

The villa is exactly as it is described...well thought out, spacious, with good quality fixtures & fittings used throughout...we particularly liked the reclining chairs in the lounge area!

The pool in particular was the main focus of our stay and it was great...our teenage children (and us) enjoyed the ability of being able to connect our music (via our mobile phones) to the speakers by the pool...enabling everyone to sunbathe to music.

We particularly liked the Guest booklet that Ian & Giuseppe had put together and gave very good local information and maps, ranging from the best beaches to visit to local supermarkets to suggested day's out to best restaurants...we would recommend eating at the 'IL Volcano' restaurant in nearby San Vito Dei Normanni...well worth the several visits we made during our stay!!

When we did stay in...the kitchen facilities were great and eating outside made it even more thoroughly enjoyable...the only down side was that we didn't use the outside pizza oven...maybe next year!

The villa's location ensured that whole holiday was relaxing and peaceful...exactly why we booked it!

We would fully recommend the Villa if you are looking for a quality property in a quiet location...but within easy reach for whatever you want to do!

We will certainly be looking to book again next year.

A superb villa with fabulous pool

  • 5 of 5

The villa was spotless with everything you need provided for,the pool outstanding and the location peaceful but close to amenities ...in short 10/10. A warm and informative welcome with help on hand should you need it during your stay and an excellent base for visiting everything Puglia has to offer.Only downside to our visit was that 2 weeks passed too quickly !

Super holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have been to puglia several times and last year was by far the best.We have stayed in trulli before ,which we enjoyed but find after a week the small living space starts to get a bit claustraphobic.

So last year we chose villa pepe .

The villa was everything we expected and more, lots of space, everything new and working. The photos really don't do it justice.It was only half an hour drive from brindisi airport and very close to many local towns such as Ostuni, Carovigno and Ceglie where we ate at many fabulous restaurants at very reasonable prices.

The nights we stayed in we had a great time, especially the kids making pizzas at the villas pizza oven. We cheated a little and bought the dough at the local supermarket - we were on holidays after all !

The villa was spotless and had everything we needed. The swimming pool was massive and the kids played all day long in it, which really made the holiday.

Ian made us feel at home and was very knowledgeable of the local area, with lots of suggestions for days and nights out .

I would heartily recommend this villa to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday in this beautiful part of Italy.

Super vacanza

  • 5 of 5

Con la mia famiglia, siamo stati in questa bellissima villa nel mese di Settembre per passare la nostra prima vacanza in Puglia, ed è stata una delle più belle vacanze trascorse in Italia. La villa si trova a soli 8 chilometri da Ostuni e 6 da Carovigno, ottima base di partenza per visitare al meglio questo splendido territorio del Sud. La prima impressione appena arrivati è stata di sublime meraviglia, in quanto non pensavamo di trovare un posto cosi perfetto per passare le nostre giornate, sembra una perla incastonata nella rossa terra e nel verde degli ulivi secolari. La villa e dispone di 3 ampie camere da letto, doppi servizi ( indispensabili se ci sono bambini), un grande soggiorno con cucina attrezzata di ogni comfort , vogliamo parlare della piscina " incantevole" con acqua sempre limpida e pulita , dispone inoltre di impianto stereo per ascoltare la musica durante i bagni. Insomma le fotografie sono assolutamente veritiere, ha dimenticavo!! il forno a legna è semplicemente fantastico, in conclusione raccomando vivamente questa villa a tutti coloro che vogliono il meglio.
