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!!

Dear December guests, I am so glad you enjoyed San Vito even after 20 years of changes-improvements. You are exactly the audience of former residents/ex-pats we are trying to capture and hope keeping our rates low proved it possible. I'm glad my first rental while abroad worked out and you got to see Puglia and its beauty which even off-season is fabulous to see. Early spring is my favorite time of year with Almond trees in bloom lined along the hectare entrance of green grass, shrubs & fresh organic oranges to enjoy. Our mixed snack baskets are the least we could do to re-introduce you to some of the local products (Salento wine) as well as insight into where we come from (American beer). I'm glad the villa exceeded your expectations & please do recommend us, especially to our military wherever you may be so they too can take advantage of our 15% military affiliated discount. We invite you back anytime as we are officially open all year long!
