About the home
Our beautiful 3 bedroom villa is set in an acre of land boasting olive, fig, hazelnut, chestnut and an abundance of fruit trees. The villa is in the quiet and secluded district of Lamacoppa, just 3kms from the picturesque hillside town of Ostuni, known locally as the ‘White City’.
The villa offers a good level of comfort for up to 6 people whilst retaining the charm and rustic features typical of the area. Outside there is a roof terrace, a covered veranda ideal for eating al-fresco style, a family sized BBQ and a traditional working pizza oven with a further outdoor table and chairs seating 6.
The villa has air-conditioning and heating throughout. Set in front of the villa is a 12m x 6m luxury swimming pool and jacuzzi, diving board and outside solar heated shower.

Villa Gemelli is located near to many beaches, some with bars and facilities, others with nothing but warm sea and sand. The nearest beach is a 15-20 min drive. It is important to understand that this side of Italy’s coast line offers both small coves and bays as well as long stretches of beach.
The stunning town of Ostuni is 3km away and sits like a white beacon on 3 hills east of Martina Franca. The seemingly disordered tangle of narrow cobblestone streets recalls a North African Arab medina, an ideal place to get agreeably lost. There are a plethora of restaurants and bars just off the Piazza della Liberta, heading upwards towards the Sombre brown stone of the 15th century Gothic Cathedral.
The average daytime temperatures in July/August are about 32 degrees and a little less in June and September.
With two seas around three sides of the area, the air does not feel too oppressive during the summer months.
With sunshine for most of the year and olive groves which stretch along a beautiful coastline, it boasts one of the cleanest seas in Europe. Italians have long made it their favoured holiday destination and now with more cheap flights from the U.K. it is rapidly becoming a hot destination for gourmet travellers who are looking for something different to the more well known holiday destinations.
Visit oil and wine making Fattorias , see beautiful Greco-Roman cities and mysterious ancient Trulli. Enjoy wonderful local cuisine and rich strong wines which are becoming known throughout Europe.

The Puglia/Molise region
Puglia, or Apullia as it is sometimes known, is the heel of Italy's boot and is bordered by two seas, the Adriatic to the East and the Ionian to the South. Italy's deep south is little known to foreign visitors but those that do visit are regarded with an unforgettable experience.
Uplifting natural beauty and a near tropical sea combine with the strange conical-roofed stone houses, the Trulli, unique to Puglia. The region is a food and wine-lover's paradise, no matter how hard you try, it is difficult to eat badly. A proportion of Italy's fish is caught off the Puglian coast and locally grown fruit and vegetables can be found on many a street corner. In addition Puglia has 23 D.O.C. wine regions, the best know being Salice Salentino.
The Ostuni area
The stunning town of Ostuni sits like a white beacon on three hills east of Martina Franca. The seemingly disordered tangle of narrow cobblestone streets recalls a north African Arab medina, an ideal place to get agreeably lost. There are a plethora of restaurants and bars just off the Piazza della Liberta, heading upwards towards the sombre brown stone of the 15th century Gothic Cathedral.

We really enjoyed the peace and quiet and amenity of the villa. The villa accommodation is compact but well-planned, and Villa Gemelli is well-equipped with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. We had very warm weather, but the pool by day and air-conditioning by night worked a treat. The surrounding area is beautiful, and a very comprehensive guests reference book was provided by the owners, Steve and Jackie. We loved all the fruit and nut trees in the garden and sampling the local cuisine, and had great fun working the pizza oven. We would definitely consider staying here again.
Thanks for the review Ann, we are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Steve and Jackie.
