Ideal for couples looking for a romantic getaway. Romantic mini-apartment in the countryside with large private pool, stone BBQ, and plenty of space for outdoor dining and relaxing. Sleeps 2

CIS: TA07301391000012428

Part of a larger house, originally built in the 1600s, the apartment has charm in abundance: exposed stone walls, barrel ceilings, and stylishly furnitured. The whole property has been lovingly restored leaving it with a romantic ambience, both internally and externally. 


Stepping into the open plan apartment through the double doors, you enter into the lounge area which has a flat screen TV and DVD player, a small cabinet containing a selection of DVDs and books, a comfortable 2 seater sofa, coffee table and arm chair. 

The kitchen has a four ring gas hob, full size oven, fridge freezer, single sink, kettle, toaster, Nespresso coffee machine, ample crockery, pots and pans to cook delicious food.

The night area is separated with an attractive, fixed dressing screen for privacy and contains a large double bed, two bedside tables with lamps, a wardrobe and a set of drawers and a full length mirror.  The window looks out onto the side of the property and onto the olive trees.

The bathroom has a walk-in shower, WC, wash hand basin and mirrored wall cabinet and a small window brings light into the room


Just outside there is a small bistro table with two chairs under the tree, where you can enjoy your breakfast, or moving a little further to the side of the apartment there is a big gazebo with large, good quality resin, throne type chairs and coffee table.  Just perfect for enjoying a glass of local wine.


As the day progresses and the sun heats up what better way to cool off then take a dip in the 10x5m private pool which has Roman steps at the shallow end and a ladder at the deep end. Relax nearby on the sun loungers whilst sipping a cool beer.  Close to the pool you will find the BBQ and a covered area with a table and chairs for dining or just unwinding. There is an outdoor shower and sink for guest use.


There is also a second poolside bathroom which has a walk-in shower, wash hand basin, WC and houses the washing machine and a small fridge to have easy access to cold drinks near the pool.

As the property is set in over three acres of land containing various fruit and nut trees there are plenty of other shady areas where you can escape the sun and relax in the fresh air, maybe even take a nap in the hammock!  The views to the pool and onto the land are lovely.

Formerly used by monks in the 17th century to make wine this mini apartment is attached to the main house which is the owners' private residence when in Italy. The apartment in only rented when the owners are away to ensuring that guests have total privacy during their stay. 


There is plenty of space for you to park you car within the property.

City Tax is included in the price of your rental.

Our paradise

This is our fourth year at Casa Settimo Cielo and for us every year means returning to paradise. The place is beautiful and perfect for relaxing. Puglia Holiday Rentals with Jackie Lear and her team are fantastic. Thanks and we hope to come back again next year.

Thank you for your 5 star review of Casa Settimo Cielo. It is such a fantastic property for 2 people with a huge pool all to yourselves, we know that's why you hope to come back for a 5th time in 2024
A place of relaxation and peace

A remarkable little casa which had everything you need for a relaxing, stressless holiday. The villa had everything you need for cooking etc and an outside barbecue too. The bed was comfortable. We slept really well there. The outside area had lots of places yo sit and relax. The pool was a welcome treat in the Puglian heat.You feel away from it all but Martina Franca is only a few minute drive and other outstanding areas of beauty such as Alberobello and Matera. Very peaceful and quiet only the sounds of the birds. We booked easily with the company and were met by Barbara who explained everything and we were fine the whole stay. However if you needed anything Barbara was on the end of the phone if you did. A lovely place would highly recommend if you like a peaceful out of the way holiday.

We are pleased you enjoyed your month stay with us at Casa Settimo Cielo and hope you return to Puglia again soon
Charming little studio for two

We spent two weeks at Casa Settimo Cielo and had a lovely time. The pool is really nice and big, although the apartment is quite small, it is well equipped and extremely good value for money; perfect for a couple. Rosanna and Jackie were extremely helpful and even offered to do a shop for us at the local supermarket as our flight from London got in so late. Martina Franca is a wonderful town. Less touristic than Ostuni and with some exceptionally good restaurants. We had probably the best pizza we have EVER eaten there; check out Basilico e Pomodoro! Highly recommended! 5*

Thank you for your 5 star review of Casa Settimo Cielo. This property fantastic value for money, very well equipped with your own PRIVATE POOL and no one else on site. All for less than a stay in a room at a local hotel. It is a studio and is spacious enough to contain a bedroom area, kitchen, dining and cosy lounge space. There are two bathrooms, one inside and one outside, two fridges. Perfect just for two.
Un bellisimo angolo di Paradiso

Grazie di tutto. Tutto perfecto.

Quiet house in stunning surroundings

Casa Settimo Cielo was everything we could have wished for and more. The accommodation was delightful and peaceful - it was the perfect size for two. The views whilst we ate dinner by the pool each evening was just lovely, we could not fault the beauty of the Italian countryside. The villa is perfect for outdoor living, we relaxed by the pool and soaked up the hot sun every day. We hired out a rental car (which we thought was essential) to make trips to the supermarket and to visit the surrounding towns. Our favourite was Martina Franca, great architecture and even better food! Jackie and Rosanna were both extremely helpful and replied instantly to any requests. I could not recommend this place enough if you're looking for a relaxing and tranquil escape. Thank you so much for your hospitality!

Relax e tranquillità - Casa Settimo Cielo

Ci è piaciuto molto il mostro soggiorno, avevamo bisogno di tranquillità e pace, e qui non mancano di certo, solo un po di festa a ferragosto, ma più che plausibile e non fastidiosa. Non manca nulla, geniale l'idea del bagno con doccia esterno, per non disturbare chi eventualmente sta riposando nel trullo. Il paese non è troppo distante, non abbiamo avuto nessun problema. Per ogni esigenza il Sig. Tommaso era completamente a disposizione. Consigliato al 100%!

Thank you for your 5 star review of Casa Settimo Cielo. We also think this a great place to stay for just two people with the added bonus of the private, sole exclusive use of the pool and grounds. We hope to welcome you back again sometime!
A wonderful, tranquil place for a very relaxing holiday.

We have just enjoyed a lovely week staying at Casa Settimo Cielo. The accommodation is charming and very comfortable for two. It was so nice to use the pool and sit beside it admiring the view and watching the swallows. It is in a great location to visit interesting places like Matera, Ostuni and Grottaglie and Martina Franca has a lovely historic centre and excellent restaurants. All combined to make a wonderful relaxing holiday.

Beautiful Outdoor Living
A fantastic villa surrounded by countryside. We spent most of our time by the huge pool; the villa really is set up for outdoor living with multiple seating/eating areas, loungers and poolside fridge and bathroom. The views sitting by the pool over the Italian countryside are lovely. The area surrounding the villa is just farmland, so very peaceful with incredible views. Inside the villa is small but perfectly thought out - and the thick stone walls and fan means air con isn't needed. The local village is a 10 min drive away and is beautiful with vast amount of restaurants. Very helpful company to book with, both via email and once in Italy Jackie and Rosanna gave immediate replies to any questions we had. Would book again without hesitation. Thanks for a fantastic honeymoon! Jenny and James x

A beautiful small getaway property in outstanding countryside.
Having visited Puglia five times before we knew what to look for when choosing our holiday and most importantly as a company, Jackie, of Puglia Holiday Rentals answered all of our questions perfectly and with a great deal of knowledge about the house and area. We decided to book it and were not disappointed as everything was exactly how it was described especially the outside space and pool area. The town of Martina Franca was fabulous although a little short on a variety of restaurants but travel the short distance to Cisternino and we found some amazing places to eat. Unfortunately we had the worst weather during our holiday which was a shame for late June but we still enjoyed our stay immensley.

Thank you for your review and we are pleased you found Casa Settimo Cielo as described in our advert. We pride ourselves in our knowledge of the properties we rent and want our clients to be delighted with their choice of holiday rental. Martina Franca has an abundance of restaurants to choose from, however I expect with you having been 5 times you would have already eaten at a lot of them. As you say, Cisternino is another great place to go for dinner as is Ostuni and Ceglie Messapica. The weather has been unusual for June this year and we are pleased you still made the most of your stay. We look forward to your 6th visit to Puglia!
A very peaceful and charming holiday venue.
The apartment is fully equipped for 2 people and delivers exactly as is described. The DVD’s and games were appreciated. The outside space is picturesque and offers the opportunity to use the lovely pool, to barbecue and to relax in various areas. The apartment information folder was well put together and covered all aspects of tourism in the area as well as equipment use in the property. The evening show of lights in the trees was an attractive display! Rossana was extremely helpful as were Puglia Holiday Rentals.

Thank you for your lovely review and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay and found the property as described. We love the fact that you get a full size pool and all of the outside with exclusive use, that coupled with the fantastic pricing makes Casa Settimo Cielo a great place to stay. It's great to know we have another satisfied customer and we hope to welcome you back again soon.
Comfortable and is set in beautifully maintained grounds.
We stayed in this property for 10 days in September. The location is well positioned for travelling around an the house itself was beautiful and had a charm about it, just what we wanted for our first Italian experience. The house was very well appointed, clean and comfortable and is set in beautifully maintained grounds and have everything we needed during our stay. The seating, pool and barbecue area is also very well appointed and laid out perfectly to enjoy the weather all day and evening and is definitely a further bonus to the property. The whole property enabled us to relax fully without having to leave. Without hesitation I would recommend this place to anyone and would definitely return in the future.

We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at Casa Settimo Cielo. September is a lovely time to come to Puglia, the weather is good and the sea still warm. We think this property is fantastic value considering you have your own private, exclusive use pool, privacy and plenty of places to relax. We hope to welcome you back again sometime.
Wonderfully relaxing time
My fiancé & I spent a week at this studio apartment in June & had such a wonderfully relaxing time. The studio is spacious and is beautifully presented with all the amenities we could have asked for. The kitchen facilities were sufficient for our stay & we enjoyed having breakfast & lunch on the outside patio area or down by the pool. We would quite often sit by the pool watching the swallows dive in to take a drink. The apartment is set in open countryside & overlooking fields filled with almond, fig & walnut trees. The local Italians we found to be very friendly, even offering us some of their homegrown vegetables one day! We would highly recommend this apartment especially to couples looking for a peaceful & romantic break ❤

How lovely to hear you enjoyed your stay at Casa Settimo Cielo and had a great time together. We also like the fact it is under 10 minutes into town by car and the nearest pizzeria is only 5 minutes away, which does great take-away pizza too.
