Caution is compulsory and proportional to the value of the house.
Whereas linen is an optional service and its cost is ? 25 per person per week. And you asked for it, choosing to pay it. Please also remember you could have used the washing machine after the first week, maybe also before...

Dear late August guests, it was our delight to meet your beautiful family! I love having the children running around and enjoying the playground, basketball, pool, trampoline & outdoors so much. I wish I had gotten a picture of them so enthusiastically picking almonds on their own initiative...what a sight with them on the pool ladder handing down each hand picked nut! I'm glad your first trip to Puglia convinced you to come back & visit. You are always welcome to stay with us & don't forget to mention your 5% return guest discount & accumulative 5% discounts for anyone you refer who books with us. You got to see alot in your short week with three top city visits but there is sooo much more to see-do, so please do come back. Hopefully you got to take some of the very good, yet economical wine home with you and maybe next time you can take one of my wine tours through Salento or Valle d'Itria or a cycling or trekking tour which is something I hope to offer in 2015. Thank you for the kind words of our family & villa and we look forward to sharing more hidden treasures with your family next time. ciao for now...donna

"Relaxing, safe, Comfortable and Convenient!"
Donna and Family! What can I say? You all made me feel so welcome with your warmth and hospitality.
This was my 5th or so trip back to your accommodation, and as always I felt looked after and care… More
Dear UK friend, What can I say? You have become part of our extended family & we welcome every stag party, romantic getaway, girls retreat you care to have! Including assisting you when you needed a bigger place with a pool. The great news is we are retiring the above ground pool for an in-ground one before next summer----so book soon under the old rates before our slight price increase comes into effect! I now manage 3 other holiday homes nearby and also work with other city owners for split-stay visitors to Puglia, Basilicata & Campagnia (Matera, Salerno, Sorrento).
As you have witnessed, the villa gets a thorough spring cleaning each year and we try to institute every improvement requested (new wardrobe, dividing wall added since you last stayed with us) and we will always have wine as you know, since I do near weekly wine tours in Salento & now Valle d'Itria as well.
I LOVE guiding & advising folks on how to discover the treasures nearby. Puglia, Basilicata & Campagnia regions continue to amaze me as I learn something new every personal trip I do (2 'heel of the boot', 3 Sassi di Matera, 2 Valle d'Itria & 1 Amalfi Coast trips this summer) which I love sharing with the guests who like to do things on their own.
We can’t wait for for your next trip back and hope all the property buying tips & potentials I've provided over the past few years come to fruition this year as prices & loans are down compared to your original hunts. Tell the London gang I say hello and we'll see you soon!!

"A Very Special Place"
We stayed in Villa Donna for one week in September. This is a very special place. On entering the house we immediately felt at home. It is beautifully restored by Donna and Toninio who have taken grea… More
Dear friends, I am so pleased you felt at home & found our place 'very special'. We do aim to please and have taken great care in restoring Villa Donna to its dimora beauty while equipping it with every comfort we can think of. There isn't anything like sleeping in the countryside quiet with just nature to hear. We've had several comments pertaining to the comfy beds (including the sofabed) with some claiming they slept better here than in their own homes.
It was my pleasure introducing you to our quaint town. It may not be a hillside charmer but it is less touristy and authentic Italian living with everything one needs and as you experienced, within comfortable walking distance. It's nice that there are numerous cafe-bars to enjoy in every part of town and I agree, Locanda Di Nonna Mena is a must try (& worth a return visit too). Unlike some of the more popular towns, SV does offer great traditional foods and beverages and you pay like a local, not the inflated tourist prices. The local entertainment is free with near nightly concerts or events in July and August and the 'Open Day' events last from June-September. SV also hosts the Barocco classical music festival kick-off as Leonardo Leo was from here. There are numerous saint's day or food/wine or cultural festivals going on in any of the nearby towns throughout the year and lots of beach dance clubs open in the summer. Their are 'discos' nearby and live band events held at some of the larger bars in town, but mostly during the winter.
I'm glad you got out and explored Puglia and was happy to help get you to where you wanted to go and enjoy some of the hidden treasures I've found to share. Being midway between Salento & the Valle D'Itria does have many advantages (beauty, wine, food) like being only an hour or so away from the 3 UNESCO sites (Trulli capital of Alberobello, prehistoric cave dwellings of Sassi di Matera & Castel del Monte).
I apologize for the unpredictable weather of late but glad you got to bike through the scenic country trails past the ancient olive tree groves. I am available 24/7 and gladly fill the transportation gap for those who don't want the hassles of driving, parking and not being able to drink while out and about or for those, like you, who get caught out in the rain. We also have a car bike rack just in case as we've had beach goers get stuck on the slightly inclining trail home after a long hot day. For these reasons we believe its feasible to do without a rental car for short stays. We have the 7pax van to shuttle folks to wherever they want to go at low cost which is often less than a daily rental car rate plus diesel fuel which is less than regular gas which most rental cars use.
It really was a pleasure meeting you both (our first Irish guests). We love developing international friendships and do hope to see or hear from you in the future. friends in Puglia, donna & tonino
Swimming pool; Great for children of all ages ; Car advised;
Wanna have fun in the sun? Get away, destress? Go to an unspoiled location? Meet friendly people? Enjoy great food & wine in a beautiful destination? Then say yes to Puglia & Donna's Cottage for an affordable, romantic, incredible place to stay, mid-way Ostuni-Brindisi! …see more

Thank you new friends for your kind words and unbiased compliments & support during those few challenging days I had. I wish the weather had been better and your time with us longer so we could have bbq'd or had you over for our traditional Pugliese Sunday dinner. I'll make sure I let the local locanda owner aware of your powerful compliment and keep passing along the 10% off your meal cards. You left the cottage in fantastic shape which is one of the bonuses of having a new, smaller & more efficient accommodation which is perfect for a couple, friends or small family of three. It's always nice to see guests enjoy our welcome baskets and especially the fruits of our land (almonds mainly). I'm glad you took the opportunity to sit back, relax & take in the quiet countryside without working too much! You are ALWAYS welcome to visit or stay with us and take advantage of our 5% discount we offer returnees on their next stay. We also offer accumulative 5% referral discounts if your friends, family or co-workers book with us, so spread the word & work on a free stay! Take care and have a wonderful summer-year! Your new Pugliese friends, Donna & Tonino.

Dear Kerry, you all are always welcome to stay with us anytime as we have went year-round this year. Don't forget to ask for your 5% return discount plus your 15% military affiliate discount for your next stay with us which basically means you'll get two free nights and it applies for Villa Donna as well! We try to make everyone feel at home by providing as many comforts as possible. All you need to do is ask and we will get it for you if we don't have it next door. I can't wait to see what you think of Villa Donna and look forward to introducing you, your hubby and your friend to a few more Salento wines and Pugliese foods, maybe even take one of our wine tours this time around? The weather is turning so it should be plenty of warm to get to the sea. Perhaps you all can ride the bikes down and utilize my bike-n ride pick-up service to get back? I have at least two new driving tours to tell you about when you get here with lots of photos and tidbits to share on how to get around more easily and economically along with some great restaurant recommendations. See you in a few weeks, donna

Thank you for staying with us! We had a great time showing you a little bit of Puglia. Wish you could have stayed longer but we hope you enjoyed the personal driver/tour guide services. It is great seeing folks come back to visit after the San Vito Air Station closer. Please share us with your friends and don't forget to mention the 20% military affiliated discount and 5% referral and return stay discounts we offer. We really enjoyed our trip together to Alberobello and Matera and sharing a bit of the Italian nightlife with you and your wife in San Vito. I hope you enjoyed the traditional Pugliese dinner with us and all the great Salento food and wine! What a trip, finding the place you used to live 20+ years ago--Gotta love the southern Pugliese hospitality and openness to strangers! We look forward to hosting you again someday...
