It is connected to Solo Hope 2 through a secure connecting door that can be locked off when necessary. Two double bedrooms are located on the ground floor and are wheelchair accessible.

The Puglia region

Villa Hope is set in sunny Puglia 3km from San Vito dei Normanni and 10km from beaches on the Adriatic near Brindisi. The area is noted for it's fabulously sunny weather and lovely Mediterranean temperatures. This area is one of the hidden gems of Italy and has much to offer from living history and fantastic food to quiet landscapes and beautiful beaches.

San Vito dei Normanni

If you've decided to explore the surrounding area there is much to do. If you're eating out, the food of Puglia is renowned throughout Italy. Carovigno, 4 kilometres away, is a fortified hilltop town and home to the restaurant, Gia Sotto l’Arco, hailed by Italian food critics as the best in Puglia. Ceglie Messapica, another very pretty hilltop town just 12 kilometres away, is known as a centre of gastronomy and boasts a Michelin starred restaurant, Al Fornella da Ricci. There is also a huge choice of very reasonably priced, family run restaurants and bars, many near the beaches serving the catch of the day.

A touring antique market visits nearby towns every Sunday and other local markets, also weekly, sell everything from locally grown fruit and veg to nearly new Dolce e Gabbana.

The nearby Adriatic beaches are sandy or rocky, take your choice. Most of the best are a short drive from the villa with nearest only minutes away. They are safe and have lifeguards in attendance.

There are always festivals and concerts to visit and San Vito Dei Normanni is well located for day trips around the region.

Many breathtakingly beautiful churches and historic buildings can also be enjoyed in the area.

Head north and within 15 minutes you will arrive at Ostuni, The White City. It is well worth exploring the twisting lanes that criss-cross this medieval city on a hill and is particularly beautiful when lit up at night. Carry on up the coast road towards Bari and you will pass through Monopoli and Polignano, both worth a wander. Inland from Bari you will discover Catel Del Monte. This amazing castle was built by Frederick II in 1240 for no apparent reason. It is visible from miles away and its mixture of architectural styles has even had Dan Brown commenting as to its symbolic meaning.

Heading West and you first arrive at the hilltop town of Ceglie Messapica. Further on you get to Martina Franca with views to Locorotondo and Cisternino in the distance.

A few kilometres further and you arrive at Alberobello, a Unesco site, with its unique type of building known as trullo. These are built from stone with conical roofs and mythical symbols painted on them and date to the Middle Ages. You will see many these trulli as you drive around the rolling countryside. These particular buildings are found only in this area of Italy and have a completely unknown origin.

To the south is Lecce, the Florence of the South. Fantastic baroque architecture surrounds you in the historic walled city which is easy to wander around as it has been pedestrianised. Carry on South and there is the port of Otranto and at the end of Italy you arrive at Santa Maria di Leuca.

To the east of the Villa Hope there is the Torre Guaceto, a protected coastal area that attracts hosts of migrating birds. There you may rent bicycles and visit the unspoiled beaches, plus there are lots of walks through the reserve.

Brindisi is only 20 km from the Villa with lots to see and do. The Appian Way starts here. The port is central to the city, which was once the setting off point for the Crusaders, however, it is now more popular as a place to set off by ferry to discover what the beautiful Adriatic has to offer!
