Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
The Villa Diomedes is situated in peaceful olive groves with views of the sea. It was built 4 years ago in the coastal resort of Lido di Specchiolla, and is only 20 minutes drive away from the nearest airport of Brindisi. There are several sea food restaurants close by on the beach and shopping can be done in the nearby town of Carovigno, or in supermarkets in one of the many towns within easy reach of the villa. The beach is only 5 minutes drive from the villa, but there are lots of lovely beach resorts along this stretch of coastline.
The villa has an elevated outlook to the Adriatic sea with beatiful stone arched terraces and steps leading down to the pool and sun bathing areas.
There are three bedrooms in all, two with a large double bed in each, and one with two single beds. There is a seperate bathroom with a shower and the double bedrooms have en suites with showers and one also has a bath.
The rooms are all air conditioned and the open plan kitchen, dining room and lounge works well for families. The decor is new, modern and trendy and the fully equiped kitchen makes life easy for guests. There is a BBQ for out side eating and a selection of very good, comfortable out side furniture, which includes dining table and chairs, settee, chair and stool and sun loungers all of which have comfortable cushioned seats.

The Puglia/Molise region
The region is known for its olive groves and small round dwelling places with conical roofs known as "trulli's".
The best place to see these is in the town of Alberobello, which is almost entirely made up of trulli buildings of all types and sizes,
Our villa is set in an olive grove and a local farmer manages the olive trees for us. We enjoy watching as they gather the olives for processing. There are many wonderful cities within the region and those close to us, like Brindisi, Bari, Ostuni and Lecce are steeped in history from the Roman period onwards. The area was prey to many invaders over the centuries and there are many influences and evidence of these incursions to be seen.
The area is a protected conservation area and so strict local planning is in force here to ensure the protection of this area of outstanding beauty. It is a serene and peaceful place and is lovely in the spring when an abundance of lovely wild flowers cover the area under the olive trees.
There are many cycle tracks around our property which are great for exploring the local rural area. These can take you down to the coast which is within walking distance. The coastal area just below our villa has many lovely restaurants many of which specialise in sea food.
Closer to the villa is a new hotel and a little further on the opposite side of the road is a pizzaria so you can have a break from cooking!
