You are immersed in country side and can pick directly from the trees or from the soil a variety of home grown fruits and vegetables.

The autumn and winter months are cool and windy but still generally very mild compared to central and northern Europe. The dark red of the wet soil contrasts with the bright colours of the silver and green olive tree leafs or the yellow and red winer flowers. The silence is interrupted by the distant barking of local dogs and the air is filled with the beautiful smells of moist soil and nearby wood burning fireplaces. Long walks or cycling tours await you as the house is just next to a cycling route.

Diddy's Country is not just a wonderful place, it's a unique experience for all your senses, immersed in the countryside life and century old traditions.

An in-ground swimming salt-water pool is planned for Summer 2017, watch this space!

Location description from owner

The Puglia region

San Vito dei Normanni

Beautiful countryside town and century-old olive groves (we produce our own olive oil which you can use for free at the property). The first Trullis (cone shaped house typical for the region) can be seen just minutes after driving towards San Michele Salentino. We are on a cycling route which leads to various sites such as Torre Guacceto nature reserve (and Beach) and also all the way to Brindisi (we have used bicycles at the property for you to use).

There are great food shops, small artisan producers, markets and fantastic restaurants nearby (there is a list in the kitchen).

Getting around

You will need a car, it is quite difficult to get around by bus or train (train stations are quite far away). Just outside our house are lovely walks on the bicycle trail, you can pick flowers in the spring and sometimes meet a shepherd with his sheep! Drive to all the famous towns, each one is unique and offers amazing sightseeing opportunities. The best are Ostuni, Otranto, Lecce, but also drive through the Itria Valley and admire the trullis (go to Alberobello) and Martina Franca has the most elegant shops (probably in all of puglia except for Bari may be). In about 1 1/2 hours you can reach the tip of the heel and enjoy the stunning caribbean-like beaches of Santa Maria di Leuca.

Interaction with guest

Dear Guests, Diddy's Country is our secondary home, we live in the UK but Alessandro is from Brindisi and his mother is from San Vito d. Normanni. We use the house for our holidays and you might see us there during UK holidays. When we are not there, our lovely Pamela will welcome you or leave the keys for you in a secure place if you should arrive very early or very late. We suggest you rent a car, the house is 1 km away from the town of San Vito dei Normanni and there is so much to explore. Although we can leave bicycles out for you if you wish, we do not suggest you go about your daily routine by bicycle. The beaches are about a 15 minutes car ride away, and you can explore lovely towns such as Ostuni, Brindisi and Ceglie (20 mins) .
