“Simply perfect - Italy off the beaten track”
Reviewed 24 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We were absolutely delighted with this holiday home. Puglia was a new area for us to explore and we loved it. It seems corny to use words like ' authentic' and 'unspoiled' because they have often been over used but in this case it is absolutely appropriate. We found ourselves surrounded by olive groves and similar Trulli houses but these did not seem to be all holiday homes but family homes. We were greeted warmly in the local shops and streets by the residents of Ceglie. We were served fabulous meals in local restaurants and were surprised at how cheaply we could eat out. We were very impressed with the local wines and researched them thoroughly. Although initially we were travelling as a couple we decided to book the whole villa. [The villa and the attached Trullo are really two very comfortable adjoining homes.] We were glad we did book all of it as we were able to add our son to our party at a later date and he was very pleased to have the Trullo wing to himself even though we took over his patio! [Behind the Trullo is the most amazing covered veranda and patio with a fine BBQ ]. The owners have thought of everything.The property was beautifully clean and very well equipped.The caretakers are warm and welcoming and even though we had no common language we got along just fine. It is not just a 'holiday let' it is clearly a much loved second home. We felt very lucky to be able to share it. The instructions from the Airport were very detailed and it is a short journey from Brindisi Airport.. Ceglie, the nearest town [ 2Km] has a spectacular old quarter and, as said above, is a very friendly town. There were so many really good places to eat in Ceglie that really we could have stayed just here all week but we travelled to Alberobello; a town of Trulli houses nearby, Lecce; which is a baroque city but like no where else we have seen and Otranto which is the harbour at tip of Italy's heel. The owners provided a huge amount of local information which was invaluable Lots of guide books and road maps were available in the accommodation. The accommodation details provided were accurate and we would recommend this holiday home without hesitation to anyone who would like to experience Italy off the beaten track.
