“Lovely villa!!”
Reviewed 6 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Steve was very responsive during booking and then later his management company kept in regular contact and greeted us to take us to the villa, making organising the holiday very seamless.

Probably just as well because the villa is set back in a secluded and quiet area that we would never have otherwise found! Really does feel very luxurious and private but obviously the trade-off is that renting a car is essential as the nearest conveniences are at least 5 mins drive away, beach is about 15 mins away.

Upon being shown around by the management company we were provided with a lovely welcome pack which was much appreciated and great way to start the holiday! We were shown the surroundings; a table tennis table, pizza oven, fruit trees, lots of seating areas (shaded/non-shaded), Steve's bar and the huge pool that is literally big enough to swim lengths! I couldn't keep my daughter out of it, the pool was amazing!

Inside the villa were 3 adequately sized bedrooms, all with air-con, a nice shower, the kitchen had a washing machine and dishwasher and everything was easy to operate.

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Gemelli.

“Great place”
Reviewed 30 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Great villa everything you need in property the pool was really good as it was very hot. You do need a car has it is a bit out of ostuni and do not book a large car as the road is very narrow up to the villa but worth booking this villa take plenty of mozie spray. Ostuni is worth a day spent there. Very cheap wine and for eating out. Steve & Jackie have thought of everything for you to enjoy your stay welcome pack in villa when you arrive and lots of information of where to eat,shops and beaches. Would recommend it and would return for another stay here.

“Best villa for outside space ever visited!”
Reviewed 30 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The experience of staying at Villa Genelli was excellent from start to finish. The owner provided fantastic detail of the villa and surrounding area before we travelled and superb instructions on how to get to the villa from the airport. Nothing was too much trouble.
The villa is in a quiet area only 10 minutes drive from Ostuni

The villa is clean and comfortable and very well stocked with appliances cutlery and tableware. Air conditioning was a god send with temperatures in the mid 40s. With grown up children in tow, 6 people using the one bathroom needed to be well co-ordinated! No great issue for us but would have benefited from an additional bathroom.
The real delight of the place is the outside space. A really large pool, plenty of areas for sitting sunbathing and relaxing including a roof top terrace with ample chairs and sun beds - all comfortable and stylish plus orchard, vegetable patch, table tennis. The barbecue in a separate seating area was right next to the fantastic pizza oven which we used a few times to cook on (thanks again to some detailed instructions from Steve)
Then there was the bar....at the end of the swimming pool with fridge and freezer - it was just like having your very own private hotel. Idyllic!!
The gardener, the pool man and the cleaners were all unobtrusive and Colleen was brilliant if ever we had an issue (rarely). For example, the villa is served by a well and requires water delivery. We ran out 1 afternoon and Colleen had a delivery to us within an hour and a half. Very impressive!

Ostuni itself is lovely with many nice bars and restaurants to frequent. Those recommended by the owner were spot on! Taxis to and from can work out expensive though (50euro round trip)

Would I recommend this villa - you bet I would. A really great place and superb customer service all round. A great holiday experience - Thank you Steve!

Thank you very much Barry for your fantastic review, I am really pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Gemelli. We are meeting a surveyor next month to see whether we can get planning permission for a second bathroom, possibly an en-suite to the main bedroom, as we appreciate that 6 people sharing one shower / toilet requires military style planning :-)

“Perfect holiday house. Fabulous pool area”
Reviewed 29 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed here for two weeks last summer and it was complete relaxation from the moment we arrived. Comfortable house, but the real selling point was the pool, garden and bar area. The pizza oven seemed challenging, but once we got the hang of it, we hardly needed to use the local pizzerias. Fabulous welcome pack which was more like a luxury Christmas hamper. Clean, well equipped and service that seemed to do above and beyond. Truly great holiday house

“The perfect villa”
Reviewed 14 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Villa Gemelli. We arrived in the dark after flight delays and were very happy to find a welcome pack of food, a well equipped kitchen and comfy bedrooms; but it was waking up next morning to sunshine and discovering the large garden and pool area that delighted us all. We loved Steve's bar, and eating our lunch/dinner in different parts of the property. Being able to pick figs, grapes and apples from the garden was a great novelty. We discovered long hidden table tennis skills and although we meant to go for a bike ride we didn't quite make it. But we did have a barbecue.
We really liked the seating area by the pool with the very attractive loungers and the swimmers made good use of the diving board and lilos.
