Description from owner

Villa Sant'Annina is a wonderful country house set in the most magnificent rustic grounds where we harvest everything from olives and almonds to clementines and figs. There is a large kidney shaped swimming pool and a full sized tennis court .The grounds are extensive and beautiful with panoramic views right down to the sea in places and towards the beautiful city of Cisternino.

The villa has been refurbished to a high standard, sympathetically retaining the lovely stone trullo and lamia which date back hundreds of years - these now form the two bedrooms of the Mirtillo apartment, which sleeps 4 people. (There is an additional cost of £100/week for Mirtillo). This listing is for the three lovely 2 bedroom apartments, each sleeping up to 4 guests - although in total, the villa sleeps up to 20 in 4 sections. The other sections are listed elsewhere on the site.

The property is wonderful for couples or small families, and is also perfect for larger families or for families holidaying together.

The Puglia region

Puglia is known as the breadbasket of Italy due to the fact that most of the country's fruit, veg, pasta and olive oil are produced here. The area is very lush and green with some of the most ancient and impressive olive trees in the world - some thousands of years old. The region is wonderfully unspoilt and the holiday choice of Italians who love the 500 miles of sandy white coastline. It is also famous for the stunning Trulli which fill the countryside, particularly in the beautiful Valle D'Itria where the World Heritage site of Alberobello (Trulli Land) is situated. It is the perfect holiday choice for non touristy types who want a taste of true Italy. You will not find many bars and nightclubs here but you will experience some of the freshest and loveliest food of your life at some of the lovely restaurants. Historically, the region has been occupied more often than any other in Italy so there are some very interesting archeological sites and cities to visit. Villa Sant'Annina is situated right in the heart of the Valle d'Itria zona Monti. We challenge you to find a more beautiful spot!

Cisternino

Ostuni is a stunning medieval white city, offering some of the best cuisine in Italy! It is a very vibrant city with a huge weekly market and the friendliest locals in Italy. Even at peak season, it remains very Italian and unspoilt. It is the place where Italians take their holidays! The villa is just 15 minutes away from the stunning Ionian coastline - 500 miles of white sandy beaches. The nearest beach is the best family beach in the area, complete with fantastic beach restaurant (very cheap, fantastic fish!)There are plenty of places to visit from the stunning World Heritage site, Alberobello (trulli town), to the beautiful city of Lecce (the Florence of the South!). For kids there is the fantastic Fasanolandia zoo safari and theme park plus the chance to be at one with nature and see where 90% of the Italy's pasta and olive oils are produced.

Puglia is most famous for its unique Trulli buildings. Crafted from stone, these amazing ancient stone structures have now mostly been renovated to provide stunning rural accommodation. The walls are several feet thick, keeping inhabitants cool in the summer and warm in the winter beneath their stunning domed ceilings.

Must sees…

The best time for sight seeing is around 5pm when the temperature begins to drop and locals dress up to take their passegiata.

Centro Storico, Ostuni – just walk and walk. Every corner you turn holds another breathtaking view. Stunning. Our favourite church is next to the town hall in the Piazza.

The following towns are all a short drive from Ostuni, and well worth a visit.

Martina Franca- The road to martina is a lovely drive – full of Trulli and Masserie. Martina itself is a baroque jewel -extremely elegant and well worth a visit.

Cisternino / Ceglie – smaller pretty towns with lots of character. It is worth visiting these towns for the drive alone which offers lovely scenery.

Alberobello – remarkable sight and a must see while you are here. Home of the trulli. Good to combine a trip with a trip to the amazing Castellano caves nearby.

Lecce is about 45 – 60 minutes drive. It is known as the Florence of the South, but I prefer Lecce any day! Wonderful Baroque architecture. Elegant university city. Masses to see and lots of shops!

Gargano peninsula – This is a treck, North of Bari. You will need to set off early, but once you are there you will see some of the most stunning coastline and country side you have ever seen in your life. Regarded by many as the loveliest place in Italy.

Egnazia - Ancient Roman port of Greek origin. Extensive ruins and fascinating museum. Also look out for the many Dolmens - Bronze age stones dotted about the region.

Markets

Every Saturday morning there is a fantastic market in Ostuni which sells everything from food to furniture. Fabulous ceramics and cheap for everything. Also, 2nd Sunday of each month, antiques market around old walls of centro storico. There are great markets in local towns nearly every other day of the week if you miss the Ostuni Saturday market.

Rainy days

For kids, there's a big ten pin bowling / amusement arcade on the road out of central Ostuni to Pilone.

There is also a fabulous Zoo safari with huge funfair / theatre in Fasano.

In Monopoli there is a 'play planet' – indoor play centre for children; not my idea of a picnic but they love it and they serve great pizza!

The caves in Castellano are huge and very impressive. They are a great rainy day option. Guided tours are available in English.

Eating Out

Puglia is known as the breadbasket of Italy due to the wonderful supplies of oil, pasta and fresh fruit and vegetables it produces. Locals will boast that the best is kept in Puglia. There are an abundance of fantastic restaurants in the area from romantic cave restaurants in the historic centre to fabulous fish restaurants on the beach. Each property is furnished with an information pack, detailing our personal favourites!

Beaches

Where can we start! Puglia has 500 miles of the most stunning sandy coastline. From tiny, deserted sandy coves to big family beaches complete with all facilities, the region boasts the loveliest beaches in Italy. You need never visit the same beach twice. Again, you will find our personal reccomendations in your info pack. The coast is about 10 minutes from Ostuni centre (or 30 seconds from Villa della Torre!)

History and Architecture

The region is steeped in the most fascinating history with much evidence of both Greek and Roman occupancy. The buildings that Puglia is famous for are the beautiful Trulli - conical or domed roofed farm buildings made from local stone. They are an extraordionary sight. There are many accounts as to how and why they first appeared - most of them rather fantastical! Whatever the reason, they make the region very special!
