"Lovely tranquil location and perfect for exploring Puglia"
We stay at the Trullo which was small for a family of 4 but beautifully designed and a very relaxing base from which to explore Puglia. The location is lovely and with great attention to detail by the hosts Antonella and Saverio and also Saverio's parents who live on site. One day we were presented with a basket of freshly picked tomatoes and peppers - a lovely touch and typical of the hospitality they provide. The pool is beautiful, although closed in the evening. The layout of the properties has been very well done, each one enjoying privacy and its own terrace.

"Beautiful villa, in a beautiful location, with the perfect hosts!"
We stayed at Villa Ulivi for 2 weeks at the end of June and had a most wonderful, relaxing holiday. The villa is lovely, with beautiful views, and the surrounding gardens and swimming pool are equally attractive. The swimming pool is a short walk from the villa, but my little 2 year old loved the walk to the pool, discovering all the local flora, fauna and spiders! Saverio and Antonella were very attentive to all our needs, and extremely helpful, as well as their parents who lived on site. We thoroughly enjoyed picking our own cherries from the cherry tree! Martina Franca is a short drive away and is a beautiful old town, with lots of interesting alley ways to explore. The nearest beaches are about 30 mins drive away, and had they been closer, this is the only aspect which would have improved our stay. Overall we had a fantastic time and would really recommend this villa. Of the 3 villas in the estate I think it has the best views and the nicest terrace.

"A precious little find!"
The owners of Il Borgo delle Querce are lovely people and did everything to make our stay as pleasant as possible. We felt very welcome. It was nice that they were waiting for us to arrive and my first impression of the house (il Trullo) was just perfect, spotlessly clean with all comforts and a sweet patio with a goreous view of the surrounding land (with lovely sunsets..). Fresh fruit, wine, pasta and olive oil from the region were our welcome present and a nice touch. Sleeping in a Trullo ensured a long deep sleep!
The house is well situated for visiting the nearby tourist attractions (you do need a car) and if you fancy a longer trip, I would strongly advise visiting the town of Matera. I can definitely recommend staying here - it's just so wonderfully idyllic..

"Wunderbarer Urlaub im sonnigen Apulien"
“Wir waren schon zum zweiten Mal bei Saverio und Antonella - und genau so begeistert wie beim ersten Mal. Borgo delle Querce ist ein idealer Ausgangspunkt für Besichtigungen (z.B. Alberobello, das wunderschöne Trani, Lecce, Otranto, Leuca - der südlichste Punkt Apuliens, Gallipoli, Cisternino, ...).
Dazwischen kann man sich am Meer (Ionico oder Adriadico) oder am wunderbar gepflegten Pool im Borgo selbst erholen. Doch nicht nur der Pool ist herrlich, die ganze Anlage ist sehr sauber, gepflegt und ruhig. Antonella, Saverio und seine Eltern waren immer mit ihrer Freundlichkeit und Hilfsbereitschaft für uns da und gaben uns mit ihrer herzlichen Art das Gefühl echter Gastfreundschaft.
Auch die Stadt Martina Franca selbst ist sehenswert und mindestens eine Reise wert.
Wir waren sicher nicht das letzte Mal im Borgo delle Querce in Martina Franca. “

"An oasis of beauty and peace."
We cannot praise Il Borgo delle Querce enough. From the immaculately presented and well equipped villetta, to the beautifully maintained grounds and swimming pool which our three young girls revelled in, it was a lovely place to stay. Puglia itself is an unspoilt and relatively undiscovered part of Italia, and was a revelation to us, despite our having lived in and travelled around Italia in the past. Saverio and Antonella were great hosts, but even more praise should go to Saverio's parents, Augusto e Fausta, who look after the property during the week and made us feel so welcome. Grazie mille, signori! We have already recommended Il Borgo to our friends, and hope to revisit shortly.

"Splendid Holiday Home in Sunny Puglia"
My wife and I spent three wonderfull weeks in Il Borgo delle querce in Martina Franca in Puglia. The holiday home is perfect. All is clean and everything you need is present. It was very nice to sit on the terrace and enjoy our diner there. Very handy is the gaz bbq. The owners are very friendly and very helpfull. The house is situated in the middle of a beautiful garden. Also the pool, which you have to share with other guests on this domain, is very good and super clean.
Martina Franca is perfectly situated to visit Puglia. The coast is only a half hour drive and other interesting places like Alberobello, Castellana caves, Lecce and even Matera in Basilicata are not so far away.
If you are looking for a quiet holiday home to explore Puglia then this is definately the place to be. 100 % recommended
