“Relaxing undeveloped area, great pool” Had a wonderful few days relaxing by the enormous pool in fantastic weather and stocking up on local food at the excellent local deli (2 mins walk) Richard & Noirin kindly supplied a very generous and thoughtful welcome basket and the villa was clean and well equipped. Not much to do in village (still fairly undeveloped for tourism but that also added to its charm) but easy access by hire car to Lecce (wonderful walled city) Gallipoli and Otranto (great swimming beaches)
Villa Nicola, seaside villa with pool, AirCon, free WiFi, owners live locally
Paradise in Puglia.
From the very first email communication with Richard and Noirin, I knew this was going to be a special holiday! They responded quickly to all queries prior to travelling regarding the villa, the surrounding area and places of interest further afield. Their detailed directions to the villa ensured a stress-free drive from Naples! Richard and Noirin are the most welcoming, gracious and friendly hosts we have ever met. They are so passionate about Puglia and they have really thought of everything to ensure guests have the best possible holiday. The welcome basket provided was overflowing with groceries, which lasted for numerous meals. The information file was fabulous, full of great facts about the area and helped to form the basis of our itineraries for our day trips ( when we could extract ourselves from the pool!). The villa itself is beautiful, spotlessly clean and well laid out. The two bedrooms have great wardrobe space (with hangers) and numerous chests of drawers. The second bedroom is well equipped with a double bed and 2 singles. All beds were exceptionally comfortable. The kitchen was very well supplied with all utensils required and again spotlessly clean. The outside space was magnificent. The pool was gorgeous, such a fantastic size for a private villa. Richard kept it exceptionally well maintained. There were many areas of sun and shade outside and the sun loungers were extremely comfortable and luxurious. Richard and Noirin were brilliant at keeping us informed about local events occurring, which really helped us get to know the area better. We couldn’t rate this villa or our holiday experience more highly. Richard and Noirin work tirelessly to ensure their guests have a wonderful holiday. It has been our absolute pleasure to stay in Villa Nicola and we hope to return some day. …
