“Great place, great views and wonderful outdoor terrace.”
Reviewed 12 October 2016 for a stay in May 2016

A group of us stayed here for 4 weeks in May/June. Villa Caterina was a great choice. Although there was plenty of room inside, we lived out on the terrace. The local focaccia, cheeses, breads, ham, proscuitto, tomatoes, vino, etc made for lazy long lunches, much relaxation and laughter. We could walk through the gate out of the garden to the water to swim - lovely water but bit rocky unless you go around to the sandy end of the cove. The villa is off a private lane with security gates so it was private and quiet. The bedrooms and bathrooms were comfortable, the facilities were good and the place was clean. Anna and Giacomo, and Emanuela at the booking agency were all wonderful to deal with. They were also delightful people and helpful along the way. Thank you so much!
Polignano a Mare is a gorgeous town, as is nearby Monopoli, not to mention Alberobello, Ostuni, Martina Franco, Lecce and the other towns we visited in the region through picturesque countryside with ancient olive groves. The regional wine is good and reasonable in the supermarkets, as is the food - best tomatoes ever! The local restaurants near the villa were really good - a small one around the corner alongside the marina and the ones at beautiful San Vito - a short walk around. All in all, it was a truly memorable stay in a wonderful part of Italy.

“Gorgeous villa to enjoy with large family on the beach”
Reviewed 26 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Where to start? We rented this wonderful contemporary villa close to Polignano a mare in Puglia for one week. We could not have been happier. The villa is spacious with 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms with 2 bathrooms being en suite. There is a large common space with a well equipped kitchen and a flat screen TV. The best part is the large patio overlooking the beach that one has private access to. The beach is NOT private ( beaches in Italy are by law public) , but the access is private. The large yard is perfect for children to run and play
The outside shower is perfect for washing sand off before getting into the house. There is reliable WIFI service. The views are magnificent and the washing machine is very handy.
I recommend to have a rental car to get to the supermarket which is a 5 minute drive into town.
We had a wonderful stay , cooking fresh food and enjoying the beach.
