“Wonderful place to relax and as a centre for beach and sightseeing.”
Reviewed 6 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a lovely stay, comfortable and with everything we needed. Could sit in the shade under the veranda, sunbathe and then have a dip in the pool to cool off. Delightful sitting watching the sunset over the olive trees. In great position for visiting historic Italian towns with great sightseeing and food! Also easy to get to great beaches. Didn't want to come home!

“The perfect base to explore this stunning area”
Reviewed 3 December 2013 for a stay in August 2013

person found this review helpful

Having holidayed in other parts of Italy before we were keen to discover a new area. Casa Mandorlina proved to be the perfect base for this. Location wise, we felt secluded enough to really relax, surrounded by olive and almond trees (the kids particularly enjoyed collecting figs from a nearby tree), yet were only a short drive to Ostuni - a gem of a city that really comes alive from 9pm. With beautiful architecture, great restaurants and a local market on Saturdays that's not to be missed.
We were also well placed to explore the rest of the sites of Puglia and managed to find a good balance between exploring the nearby towns (for us) and the lovely nearby beaches (for the kids!). The villa itself is bristling with character yet well renovated equipped with everything you could think of to make your stay enjoyable. I was initially concerned that the living area would be too small but it was absolutely fine for our family of four. On top of that we spent most of our time on the very generous sized terrace while the kids thoroughly enjoyed the pool which, although was fairly small, was perfect for cooling down. Our days were spent exploring in the mornings and chilling out/cooling down in the afternoons - bliss!
The owners, Wendy & Louis, went to great lengths to make our stay comfortable, with masses of great local advice. The welcome pack was very appreciated - as was the cold prosecco in the fridge on our arrival! It was also nice to know Francesco, who looks after the villa and pool, was just a few minutes away if we need anything. All in all a wonderful family holiday and we hope to return soon. One word of advice though: hire a car and make sure you get excess waiver insurance from a third party - roads are narrow! A £16 insurance saved us over £200.

“Beautiful setting for a relaxing holiday, ideal location, wonderful neighbours!”
Reviewed 26 March 2013 for a stay in August 2011

Casa Mandorlina is a cleverly converted building, offering very comfortable accommodation for six people. The location, a few miles from Ostuni, is quiet; the house is surrounded by an open area with mature fig trees providing an excellent treat for breakfast, but it is not isolated and the neighbouring family is particularly friendly and helpful.
Ostuni and the other small towns in the area are charming with plenty of shops and cafes. The villa owners can provide invaluable suggestions for really good restaurants offering traditional Puglian food.
The kitchen area is small but functional and the villa is well-furnished with some lovely creative touches.
There are a number of beaches a short drive from the villa. There is a really good pay beach adjacent to a nature reserve which was busy but not overcrowded even in high summer. We visited a number of the local towns and also more touristy areas like Alberobello, but we also really enjoyed sunbathing on the terraced flat roof of the villa, eating lazy lunches sitting on the veranda and we made good use of the small pool.
We hope to stay again before too long.
