Ticked all of our boxes
We were a party of 3 families; 6 adult and 4 children. We were
welcomed by Barabara; who is an amazing lady; who thinks of
everything. From the minute we arrived we were impressed by the
quality, facilities, size and location of Villa Tra Cey. Our
favourite part of the villa had to be the outdoor kitchen; we
didn't really eat out as we loved sourcing the food and cooking it
between us. The Martina Franca location is very central and only 15
minute drive from Aberobello. We're all eager and hopeful to
return; we couldn't fault anything about the holiday; including the
information and correspondence with Jackie at Puglia Holiday

Thank you for your 5 star review of Villa Tracey
We are pleased "it ticked all the boxes," especially as you had 3 babies to cater for.
There is so much to do at Villa Tracey that often our guests don't venture very far but choose to relax in the comfort of the surroundings.
We hope to welcome you back again.
A great stay!
Lovely property exactly as described in the advertising.
Impeccably clean and the meet and greet by Barbara was very
welcome given that we were quite late having been held up by the
car hire people.
The supply of games and floats, etc for the pool was very much
appreciated by our grandchildren.
The initial visit by the chef to demonstrate pizza making was a
great success and allowed us to make our own for the rest of the
The only minor disadvantage was a long trip for supplies from
the local supermarket but a small price to pay for such a lovely
Thank you for your 5 star review.
We are pleased you found the property as advertised and enjoyed using the pool floats.
Our guests love our pizza chef evening, especially the little ones who get to make their own.
We are a bit puzzled by the long trip to the supermarket though, our nearest supermarket is just over 5 minutes drive away and is listed in our house book.
We hope to welcome you all back again sometime.
Mooie, ruime villa met zwembad . Alles was aanwezig wat op de
site vermeld stond. Prachtige vakantie gehad

Perfect Villa for Family Holiday
We were a mixed age group of 7 people and from the moment we
were met by the lovely Barbara the whole experience was faultless.
Villa Tra Cey had everything we could possibly need and more, to
make our stay relaxing and enjoyable. The whole villa inside and
out was perfectly clean, with well appointed bedrooms &
bathrooms, comfortable beds, lots of chill out space, and a kitchen
so well equipped we had a job to keep one of our party out of it.
The outdoor space was fantastic, with more than enough comfortable
sun loungers for all, and plenty of comfy shaded areas for those of
us that needed it. The pool was a delight to swim in with easy
access and very well maintained. We practically lived in the
outdoor kitchen/bbq and dining space near the pool. A perfect spot
for eating and also for all those "pre dinner drinks & sun
downers" we just had to have whilst admiring the superb views
surrounding the villa. We found some absolute gems of local
restaurants serving local dishes and wines in Locorotondo and
Alberobello, made a visit to the I Pastini winery (large purchases
made) and even went to the Aquapark Egnazia at Monopoli. All great
fun, nearby and very easy to get to. We were lucky enough to have
the amazing Lucrezia cook for us the most beautiful dinner one
night. Words do not describe how delicious her food was, all local
and served with huge pride but also eaten with great gusto. Loved
it! From first booking to check out the service provided by Jackie
and Barbara has been excellent and we highly recommend! Grazie
mille da tutti noi

Thank you for your 5 star review.
We are pleased you found our service faultless and the property well equipped.
We too love the outdoor kitchen and BBQ area, especially the bar area for making cocktails.
We hope to welcome you back sometime.
We stayed at Villa Tracey for a week for my sister's wedding. What a lovely villa. Such a peaceful location and had everything we could ask for. Even 'The Hoff' called around and loved how the villa looked. Barbara was so helpful and welcoming and made us feel at home. We only wished we could have stayed for longer. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Beautiful area and so close to Martina Franca and Locorotondo. We are all devastated we are back home. Thank you for a fantastic holiday. Stunning villa and stunning welcome.

How wonderful to hear that David Hasselhoff came to the villa during the wedding week in Puglia!
We always try to exceed our guests expectations and look forward to welcoming you back.
Villa Tracey - Fabulous Villa for an amazing family holiday
We booked this villa for a family holiday to celebrate two special birthdays. Our party included three families, three generations of seven adults and three children. From the initial contact with Jackie at Puglia Holiday Rentals right up until departure, we could not have asked for a better or more professional service. The villa had everything a large group could possibly need to ensure that everyone was able to relax and enjoy the many facilities the villa had to offer. Everyone was well catered for from the large screen TV including Sky to watch the world cup, table tennis, snooker table, punch ball, the toys for the small children and the amazing swimming pool. The swimming pool and outside lounging area were fabulous and very well used as we had amazing weather. In particular, we enjoyed the outside kitchen and the large table for "Al Fresco" dining. We had several BBQ's, made Pizza and as a special treat we had the wonderful Lucrezia come and cook a fantastic meal for the actual birthday celebrations. The property was spotless when we arrived and was very well maintained. The kitchen was well appointed and everything we needed was there. The pool man came several times to ensure the pool was cleaned and in perfect condition for our stay. The area around Villa Tracey is amazing. We enjoyed eating out and visiting the many special towns just a short drive away. We went to Alberobello, Martina Franca, Ceglie Messapica, Locorotondo & the beautiful Cisternino. Each town was special and we had some amazing meals with lovely friendly service. We particularly enjoyed our meal at Osteria Bell'Italia in Cisternino, so much so that we went back for our last night in Puglia. We did a wine tour & tasting at I PASTINI and an Olive Oil tour & tasting at L'Acropoli di Puglia. Both were extremely good, very informative and the owners gave very interesting presentations in English. Both tours had been recommended by Jackie and are well worth doing. We also had a day at the AcQuapark Egnaizia which was great fun for all but especially the children big and small. We had a day at the beach too which was fabulous. We did quite a lot in our two weeks, but also feel that there is still a great deal to see and do in the Puglia and would love to return one day. A special mention must be given to the wonderful Basia, who could not have been more enthusiastic, helpful or friendly. Nothing was too much trouble and anything we asked she had the answer.

Thank you for your 5 star review for Villa Tracey.
Villa Tra-Cey really is packed out with things to do, lots of comfort and a great outdoor space with pool. We even supply floats for the pool!
By booking direct not only do you save £££'s on the service fees the middle men charge you, you get to talk to us about your needs for a holiday rental, so that we can match the property to you. It is important to us that you choose the right property so that you are over the moon with your choice and have a fantastic time in Puglia.
Séjour parfait ! - Villa Tra-Cey
Super séjour... Nous étions 13 à séjourner dans cette magnifique villa et nous sommes ravis de nos vacances. La maison était parfaite pour notre groupe. Très bien équipée, nous n'avons manqué de rien, si ce n'est d'un peu plus de temps pour vraiment en profiter à fond !! Un petit coin de paradis, à peine 10 minutes des commerces. Barbara et Jackie ont été à nos petits soins. Nous recommandons vraiment cette propriété. Nous reviendrons surement ! Merci ! Céline and Co

It was a pleasure to meet you all and to hear how you had enjoyed discovering Puglia. Thank you for your 5 star review. We at Puglia Holiday Rentals want all our guests to have a fabulous time.
We stayed at Villa Tra Cey for a week at the beginning of May this year. The villa was absolutely beautiful and the pictures do not do it justice. There were 8 of us in total being 6 adults and 2 children. The service we received from Jackie was also excellent. We did have a couple of issues with the hot water and each time Angelo (the maintenance man) was there within a matter of minutes. Jackie did also advise us that they would be having a new boiler installed after our stay to ensure the problems did not reoccur. She booked trips and restaurants for us and it really felt like nothing was too much trouble. The pool and games room in the villa were great and we found a prefect mix of chilling out at the villa and going out exploring the local towns. The outside kitchen area was also great and we used this nearly all week.
I would not hesitate to go back to this villa if we visited the area again and thanks to Jackie for all of her help. A real pleasure to find such good service these days!!

Thank you for your 5 star review.
We are very pleased to say we have resolved the small issue with the hot water and all our guests are very happy and clean :-))
We always try to do our best for our guests and it is a pleasure to tell you about the off the beaten track places to visit as well as where to eat with the locals.
It was a pleasure to have you all and we hope you come back again in the near future.
The perfect family holiday home
This is a stunning villa, we had the most beautiful 2 week holiday here, we have a large family with 5 children ranging from 2-18 years old. This accommodated all ages with actives at the villa or in the surrounding towns to keep all the kids happy! The food is amazing, with towns very close by perfect for going out to dinner in the evenings, the beach being only 30 minutes away was great. The property was greatly equipped, very child friendly. Would love to return next year, would highly recommend it!!
We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Villa Tracey and hope you return again sometime.
It ticked all the boxes
It ticked all the boxes and more. We were a family party of eight adults and six children celebrating the two seniors' 50th wedding anniversary. The Villa was superbly appointed and nothing was found wanting. Originally advertised as sleeping only 13, another mattress with pillows and sheets was provided to satisfy our total complement of 14 and easily accommodated as appropriate in one of the large bedrooms. Our group of 14 comprised: First family - the parents/grandparents (2); Second family - two parents one child aged 6; Third family - two parents and two children aged 9 and 7; Fourth family- two parents and three children 11, 10 and 8. All appeared comfortably separated and at no time were we tripping over each other. There was plenty of seating for everyone in the villa, in the veranda, the sun beds round the swimming pool and in the covered eating area outside. The weather temperature varied between 29 degrees and 26 degrees and we had two thunderstorms. The highlight of the holiday was undoubtedly the swimming pool especially for the children who had great fun with the armchair and lilo floats and the underwater water jet against which they could improve their swimming strength (the never ending pool). Another highlight was to have a traditional Italian meal provided by a local lady, Lucrezia. Delicious! Another highlight was to use our skills with the pizza oven in the outside cooking area adjacent the outside covered eating area which adequately accommodated our 14. Villa Tra-Cey lies in between Martina Franca and Locorotondo and is about a one hour drive from Brindisi or Bari airports. Because it is off the beaten track, Jackie Lear, the Puglia Holidays Rental representative, gave us sat-nav and clear instructions to rendezvous at the local Simone petrol station and Itria Caffe before the final couple of kilometres. She provided us with excellent customer service. Each morning we collected scrumptious croissants from the cafe. The property was beautifully clean on arrival and appeared well maintained. It was also very secure with electronic gates. The £750 damage cover was promptly returned despite our accidentally breaking two tumblers and a wine glass. The large amount is understandable for the equipment at risk: there is a full size snooker table with green baize in the games room in the basement and a very large TV with electronic games equipment. We have no hesitation in highly recommending Villa Tra-Cey.

Excellent villa providing everything we required.
When booking a villa over the internet we are cautious. Happily we can recommend this company for efficiency and helpfulness. There were no problems of any significance and we have no hesitation in saying you will not be disappointed with either the villa or the management.
Our thanks to Jackie & Sheree for their help and useful suggestions
