“Rural Paradise”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My partner and I stayed at this wonderful property for 2 nights as we had to leave our original villa early... I wish we could have stayed here for our whole holiday!
The property is located just outside of the pretty town of Francavilla Fontana (30 mins from Brindisi Airport) but it feels like you are in the countryside. It is in a quiet lot, surrounded by tall pines and eucalypts. The grounds are overflowing with brightly colored flowers and original farm features.
The house itself is a cosy and authentic property with a spacious lounge/diner a kitchen (with an original bread-oven renovated but not for use) with a double bedroom leading out into an enclosed private courtyard with citrus trees, a well and a shaded area for relaxing and alfresco dining. The house has been tastefully and elegantly decorated by Pierfrancesco, the owner, with great attention to detail.
Pier himself is hugely friendly and approachable and likes to offer as much support to his guests as possible to ensure they get the most out of Puglia. He is knowledgeable about the local area and will go out of his way to help you.

If there was some constructive feedback to leave it would be that the bedroom can occasionally get a little hot, but nothing the stand-alone fan doesn't sort out.

We had such a lovely time here in a very special property that is obviously well looked after by its owner. I would wholeheartedly recommend this property to couples looking for a relaxing time tucked away in a rural setting but with easy access to some of the best sites in Puglia.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 10 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

It is a wonderful and peaceful place. Lovely house. I felt at home. words cannot express how beautiful the house is and how unique it was to stay in this house. I felt very privileged. On our arrival we found a basket full of local products, such as olive oil, wine, home made jam. It is also conveniently located for all those who want to go and explore Puglia. Highly recommended.
