Map and how to get there

- Very Good
The property was great - well-managed, clean and well stocked with a lovely garden with fruit trees and a clean pool. Richard and Noirin were extremely helpful and made us feel very welcome. We really appreciated the 'welcome pack' of food etc they provided for us. We loved being so near the beach and would highly recommend the property.
“Amazing holiday in the sun.. villa sun that is!”
Absolute amazing time from the moment we got there. We were given a warm welcome from Noreen and Richard, shown around and advised on nearby restaurants and towns. We also greatly appreciated the welcome basket full of goodies to get us started. Fantastic villa with delicious fruits from the garden and refreshing swims in the pool. Good day trips out to some beautiful towns - would recommend a car as we would have missed out if we had not had one. Overall amazing! Dare I say..best holiday so far??
“Excellent vacation, great villa, nice people”
Excellent vacation, great villa, nice people.. Clean, quiet, Perfect kitchen, great outside sitting with barbecue grill, pool... Sea is clean, not far away, nice little town of Torchiarollo with Nona Lisa restaurant and supermarket for shopping.. Just postive memories will remain for a long time :-)
“Wish we were still there!”
We had a fantastic time at Villa Sun Beach and the owners, Richard and Noirin, could not have been more helpful and welcoming if they tried. The welcome basket of food was perfect and got the holiday off to a great start. The villa was immicualtely presented and the garden was so, so lovely. Because we went end of May the pool was a little on the chilly side but the kids did not seem to mind (aged 5yrs and 18months) and it was used every day. Richard came and cleaned the pool regularly, too. We loved helping ourselves to fresh fruit from the trees in the garden and the children loved lizard and gecko spotting, too. We travelled with my husbands parents which was a godsend making sure our toddler remained safe around the pool. It was nice for us that the pool wasn't gated as it allowed our other son the freedom to get in and out of the pool independently though of course this is something you need to consider when travelling with little ones. The local area was definitely the 'real Italy' - certainly not jazzed up and beautified like, say, Tuscany might be. We loved the local market in Casalabate for the wonderful atmosphere and fresh foods and its 'realness'. The flipside of going somewhere so underdeveloped is that some areas are not well looked after in terms of rubbish. It made us a little sad at times that the locals perhaps didn't care for their environment as much as we do here in the UK (never thought I'd hear myself say that!). So you need to be prepared for that when visiting this part of Puglia. However, the local towns - Otranto, Lecce and Agaya in particular - were beautiful and clean. And of course, the Villa with its walled garden were idyllic. We would definitely recommend Villa Sun Beach to friends and family.
“Best holiday in years.”
We booked this holiday knowing nothing about the area or indeed about Puglia. The villa has a fantastic website with all manner of information and photos, so you have a pretty good idea of what to expect before you arrive. We were greeted at the villa by the owners Richard & Noireen who helped us settle in and were very informative about places to visit and eat out. Most of our days were spent by the pool or on the beach (5min walk) so we probably didn't do as much exploring as we would of liked to. The places we did visit were great, especially Lecce (better at night), and the locals were extremely friendly and the restaurants served great food at reasonable prices. We had two teenage girls with us who fell in love with the place and the boys. Every evening they would go into Lendinuso to meet up with the friends they had met. At no time did we have to worry about them as the whole area is very family oriantated. We booked the villa for two weeks next year before we came home and I would thoroughly recommend to any family or group thinking about taking a holiday in this area.
