Siamo stati in questa villa dal 22 al 29 agosto abbiamo ricevuto una accoglienza veramente stupenda da Richard . La zona è tranquillissima . Siamo stati davvero bene. Grazie Richard

Owner's reply: Leonardo, tu Carla e la tua famiglia siete stati i benvenuti a Villa Azzurra e siamo molto contenti che abbiate apprezzato la vostra vacanza con noi questo agosto, in quello che è un anno molto difficile per tutti noi. Speriamo di rivedervi a Puglua e nel frattempo stare tranquilli e felici.

“And relax........”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2020

We have just returned from our 3rd stay at Villa Azzurra and we have booked to go again next year already. I can’t rate the villa highly enough. It has everything you need and the pool is amazing. It takes just 10 minutes to walk to the village of Torre san Gennaro and the beach. We don’t bother hiring a car as we can get everything we need from the small supermarket and bakery. We eat out every evening at the local restaurants which are excellent and so reasonable. This is the real Italy and not commercialised in the slightest! Be prepared to use a translation App if you can’t speak Italian as not a lot of English is spoken in the village. Richard and Noirin are superb hosts who will go above and beyond to make your holiday go as smoothly as possible. With the uncertainty of our trip due to COVID-19, they were amazingly understanding and reassuring. We cannot wait to go again next year.

Owner's reply: We are so pleased that the Villa and our services accommodated your families needs so well Caroline. We do give all our guests a well stocked complimentary welcome basket, because our guests could arrive at any time depending on their flights, and could arrive hungry and tired in the evening even. The last thing that they then want to do is go shopping, so we always ensure that the welcome basket and fridge contains enough for an evening meal, breakfast and even lunch the next day - including wine and beer to help our guests unwind the evening of their arrival. Its great that you have booked with us already next year, and we are looking forward to welcoming you all back.
