Most relaxing holiday-highly recommended
We had two wonderful weeks in Will's villa. He couldn't have looked after us better - a full fridge on arrival with frequent gifts of pastries during our stay. The villa was very comfortable, plenty of space with flexible accommodation. Swimming pool was excellent.We particularily liked the different areas to sit and sunbathe - both in the sun and in the shade.Carovgno and Ostuni - each ten minutes away by car -provided all you needed. Local bread ,homemade pasta and fresh fish shops were excellent. Many stunning hilltop towns to visit within 30 minutes of the villa with an abundance of beautiful town squares, cafes and restaurants.Puglia is an enchanting area of Italy. Go and visit it.
I am pleased you enjoyed your holiday so much. We try to help, and you made it a great holiday of celebration too.
Villa Acacia is in a convenient position to enjoy Ostuni, Carovigno, the beaches and the Adriatic, and Puglia more generally. There are so many lovely villages and towns - Lecce, Monopoly, Martina Franca, Cisternino, Locorotondo, Alberobello. And the Zoosafari at Fasano, and water park too. The people here are friendly and helpful, the food wonderful and at fantastic value.
We try to help your holiday be relaxed and special as we know holidays are hard earned.
I hope to see you again. Have a great autumn - it will be lovely here but we will have the hard work of the olive harvest!
Best wishes, Will
Wonderful villa in an idyllic location close to Ostuni
We stayed for a week at Will's villa in the countryside very close to Ostuni and Carovigno. Surrounded by olive trees, the setting is beautiful and tranquil, yet is only 5-10 minutes drive to the characterful Ostuni, and it's fantastic eateries and gelaterias.
A perfect retreat for a family holiday, we loved the outdoor table tennis, and cycled in to Carovigno via the country lane, where we enjoyed shopping for seafood to cook on the barbeque.
The villa and trullo provide high class accommodation, the kitchen had everything we could have needed, including the welcome pack from Will, who incidentally was so helpful throughout our stay - providing recommendations for local restaurants, shops, beaches and the history of the region.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying here - a most wonderful holiday villa!
Very comfortable, quiet and relaxing
We had a wonderful relaxing week and although the weather wasn't the best we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Villa and Trullo worked well for us, the kids had a bedroom each in the Villa and were happy with the internet speed (probably their only requirement for a holiday villa) and we could relax in the Trullo which we found really comfortable. On the cool nights we had the log burners to make it cozy. The location is very quiet and is about a 45 minute walk into Carovigno along a very quiet lane, Ostuni is slightly further but only a 10 minute drive.
Will was very helpful accommodating our late arrival and departure times and meeting us on the first night with the keys and the fires lit at 11.00 PM. There was also the unexpected bonus of a stock of groceries to get us going on the first morning and a gift of cakes on our departure. He was also a mine of information on the local area and restaurants and was really helpful in making reservations for us where he thought they might be busy
If the weather had been warmer the Villa has a beautiful setting with a pool, outside seating area and a roof terrace that looks out over the olive groves and down to the sea.
Thanks Will for a wonderful holiday
Thank you for you kind words and for being great guests. They say life is what you make it and, although the cool weather was later and more changeable than normal, you made the most of your holiday in the heart of Puglia.
The internet speed is better than mine at home in the UK, and the service is unlimited.
I have built the new parts of the villa with double the normal insulation, and insulated the ancient parts too, to be warm in winter and cool in summer.
With whatsapp I can quickly give lots of information to make life easier when guests try to find things when out, or locate the best beaches, restaurant or bar etc. When guests communicate as well as you then I hope I help to the maximum.
One week on from your stay and we are enjoying great sunshine and temperatures in the low twenties in this the second week of April. I hope we can tempt you back for some of the beautiful weather we normally get here.
Thank you, and best wishes to you all in your work and your studies.
Wonderful villa and host
An exceptional week spent at Will’s villa and trullo – we were 2 couples and stayed for a week in early September – one couple occupied the villa and the other the trullo so we had plenty of room. We had a bit of difficulty finding the property but Will was able to guide us with detailed directions via Whats App. We were exhausted when we arrived and didn’t feel like heading out again for dinner so Will provided us with eggs, ham and tomatoes which we enjoyed washed down with a bottle of Prosecco, beer and some Gin and Tonics!! All accommodation was extremely comfortable with comfy beds, well equipped kitchen and bathrooms and great outside areas for relaxing and dining. We had excellent weather during our stay which enabled us to take advantage of the large pool and its sunbeds. The property is very quiet and situated amongst an olive grove but within easy driving distance of Carovigno, Ostuni and Villanova where there are many fine restaurants. We particularly enjoyed a meal at Art Café La Loggia in Carovigno. We loved the beaches which were a short drive away – Polignano a Mare where we saw people cliff diving from the vertical cliff tops and where we enjoyed their specialty – caffe speciale (coffee, lemon zest, sugar, cream, amaretto); Mezza Luna and its beach club – good food, fine sand and crystal clear water. We explored Puglia and would recommend visiting the towns of Matera – originally a prehistoric troglodyte settlement (where we hired a guide for a walking tour of Sassi di Matera), Lecce, Gallipoli, Locorotondo, Alberobello and there are so much more.
Will is an amazing host – nothing was too much trouble for him and we really appreciated his knowledge of the area for directions, shopping, dining and secluded swimming spots. We loved the extra touches like the pastries that he provided. He even provided an early morning “taxi” service for our friends who were catching a train from Brindisi. Thank you Will – we had the most fantastic time and we would highly recommend the property to anyone who is thinking of visiting Puglia – it is a wonderful location to explore this part of Italy.
A warm welcome in Ostuni
We stayed in Will's villa for the last two weeks in September and from the moment we arrived we felt as though we belonged. Will is an amazing host, he is very knowledgable and very well connected in the local community. He ensured that all of our needs and queries we taken care of very quickly. He arranged a pasta making afternoon with the lovely Annarita which was great fun and educational. The villa is very comfortable and well equipped, the swimming pool is fantastic and the roof terrace an amazing place to eat and relax. We would wholeheartedly recommend the villa for a holiday in Pulia, it is perfectly positions to visit Ostuni, neighbouring towns and the coast.
Lovely villa for a perfect family holiday
We stayed one week with our 3 children (1, 4 and 6 years) in this fantastic villa.
Will is truly the perfect host, we never had such a helpful, caring host before. Honestly. He did everything to make us feel right at home...
We had a lot of food and drinks as a welcome package. Even for our long drive back home, he provided us with everything you could think of :-)
And he gave us a lot of helpful insider tipps! The communication was always very quick and nice.
The villa is created with lots of love and very well equipped. The pool was fantastic... Our children did not want to leave the property because they liked this place so much... Old olive trees all over the place... hammocks underneath. Figs and almonds right from the tree just a step away... A spacious roof top which is great for sundowners...
The villa is located in a very calm and relaxing area not far away from must-sees like Ostuni, Carovigno, Locorotondo, Cisternino, Martina Franca and Alberobello. Beautiful beaches are close by (approx. 10-15 minutes car drive). The location is really perfect to explore wonderful Puglia.
We can highly recommend this wonderful place! Thank you for a great week in your lovely villa, Will!
Ostuni, die "Citta Bianca" ist ein magischer Ort vor allem in den Abendstunden. Die Architektur ist eine Mischung aus allen Dingen im südlichen Mittelmeerraum.
