Perks for the Parents

This sleek and spacious villa with pool and private gym is set in beautiful gardens and has plenty of space for children to play. The private pool is great for adults and children alike and has a wide stepped entry point ideal for smaller children. Inside, the property has plenty of space for kids and adults to enjoy privacy, and along with a large living room on the ground floor, there is a den, office and gym area on the lower level. The open plan living room is designed to stay cool even in the heat of the midday sun and boasts a state-of-the-art surround sound stereo system and 50-inch wall mounted flat screen TV.

Why Kids Love it

Teenagers will love the downstairs den where they can watch TV and films in peace. They can also use the gym equipment. Younger children will love the pool and all the wonderful outside space to play ball games, and for really little ones, the property is well set up with big baths, a high chair, a travel cot and more. There is a brightly-coloured children's room to make them feel really at home. Local beaches are under 10km/ 15 minutes’ drive away.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 3 days. This is a family friendly property however, as with all properties with pools, parents must keep an eye on their children at all times. The pool and stairs are not gated. There is a DVD player in the open plan lounge. The villa has a full alarm system with cameras and video surveillance. There is also a safe in the property that guests are welcome to use. There is space to park on the driveway but guests can also make the most of a large garage (controlled by remote control) measuring 60sqm, offering plenty of space for 2 vehicles.

About the Location

The villa is situated in the peace and quiet of the countryside, but close to the historic town of Ostuni, and enjoys views of the 2 ancient masserie - Carestia and Foragno. It is a great location to enjoy a holiday in Puglia, within easy reach of the airport and with lots to see and do in the vicinity if you want to do some sightseeing during your trip. It is just inland with beaches under 10 km away. Brindisi and Bari both have airports; Brindisi is around 35 minutes’ drive away while Bari’s is just over an hour away. Car rental is essential in this rural area.

Accommodation Details

This 5-bedroom villa includes a spacious kitchen with American style fridge freezer, 5 ring gas hob, oven and dishwasher, plus a living and dining area with table seating 8. The bedrooms are laid out with 3 on the upper floor and 2 on the lower floor. The top floor has a master double bedroom, second double bedroom and single bedroom. All have ensuite bathrooms; there is a large jacuzzi bath in the master bathroom. Both bedrooms on the lower level sleep 2 guests and share a bathroom. There is a utility room, smaller living room, small gym and office area on the level also. Gardens measure 5000 sqm and include olive groves and a large swimming pool.

Style Notes

Modern Italian. The property is stylishly furnished throughout in a modern, contemporary style however it remains in keeping with the traditional Puglian architecture and traditions. Rooms are spacious with curvaceous walls, neon mood lighting and attention to detail; the kids room is a bright green while the kitchen and living spaces are airy and bright. An inner courtyard holds an olive tree for a nod to the property’s history. By far the biggest draw is the well maintained, extensive gardens which include a curvy swimming pool and olive groves; another perk includes 21st century energy saving devices including solar panels and a thermal chimney.

I am a Mum of two children. My eldest - Ben - is 13 years old and my youngest - Lucy - is ten. As a family, we holiday in Italy 2-3 times a year and love the laid back, relaxed atmosphere that Italy offers us. Italians respect traditional family values and adore children as much as they love their food, which in our eyes makes it the perfect family holiday destination! When they were little we liked to holiday in the Italian Lakes in particular. Our children are now old enough to enjoy the many water sports that the area offers, but we were holidaying in the area since they were only just crawling and found that the area offered plenty for them to enjoy whatever their age. We can already see how much it will offer them as teenagers too! We now like to explore other areas of Italy too, our favourites being Puglia, Tuscany and Umbria as well as the Lakes region. I hope that I can help other families to find their perfect holiday in Italy.

Puglia, Italy

Meadows, beaches and sun-ripened figs

It’s no surprise that Puglia is beloved by Italian tourists: with pristine sandy beaches, hilltop towns filled with Baroque churches and meadows of wildflowers and olive groves, it’s a sensational vacation spot. Down on the heel of Italy, it’s known for its ‘peasant food’ - simple dishes bursting with the sun-ripened flavors of local figs, olive oil, tomatoes and peppers. Entertain the kids with gelato and beaches, then explore some of the area’s special treats, including the limestone caves of the Grotte di Castellano and the eerie UNESCO-listed Castel del Monte. The town of Alberobello is also well worth a visit for trullo-spotting - the town has over 1,500 of the region’s classic cylindrical houses that you can't see anywhere else in Italy.
