Our week's stay at Villa Valeria was a long way beyond our expectations. The web site photos didn't prepare any of us (four couples) for its splendour, from the grand entrance avenue, to the turrets and the pool and magnificent gardens (which incidentally have 66 places to sit excluding walls around flower beds)! Although nearby towns and villages are great to visit, we loved Martina Franca, real Italy, with many places to eat, drink, shop - beautiful baroque buildings (and much earlier houses in the old town). It's very difficult to find anywhere to stay in Puglia with space, a pool and so on, where you don't need a car to go exploring locally. Guiseppe the on site caretaker cheerfully looked after the garden and pool and took away the recycling. House (including well equipped kitchen and comfortable bedrooms) and garden were immaculate on arrival. Finally - Jackie was helpful and professional from the outset; we were in touch several times during our stay - always quick helpful responses. We all loved Puglia and Villa Valeria.
We had a wonderful holiday in a beautiful villa and a stunning location. Jackie sorted everything thing out down to the last amendment to our shopping list and every other thing we needed. Guiseppe looked after the villa and pool without being in your face. All in all a wonderful experience thank you.
What a beautiful property. Our family of 8 thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Valeria. The location was ideal as we could walk to restaurants, shopping and site seeing in Martina Franca. I think I looked at every villa in Puglia and frankly this is the only one where you do not require a car. The pool was great on hot afternoons after taking a day trip or walking in town. The rooms were great size and our entire family enjoyed our stay. Having the two refrigerators was ideal. The grounds were immaculately manicured and Guiseppe who stays in a separate house on the huge property kept the area clean every day. Jackie, the property manager, helped us with transportation arrangements, stocked the villa before our arrival, arranged a boat trip and a dinner cooked at the property and was available any time we needed her.. She selected some wines for our stay and we enjoyed them all. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend to those looking for villas. We all felt like we were staying Castle with manicured grounds and a beautiful swimming pool. A big thank you to Jackie for all of her help.
The villa is beyond anything I could have imagined, beautiful, comfortable, relaxed. The large grounds surrounding it make it a perfect place for a holiday with a group!
Beautiful interior rooms, comfortable and relaxing to enjoy the wonderful gardens and pool area, although the water was rather refreshing for this time of year. Lovely situation being close to the town to enjoy the restaurants and markets, but great to return to the calm grace of this lovely building. A wonderful break.
As soon as I arrived at the magnificent electric gates and looked up the driveway I knew I was going to have an amazing experience. The manicured gardens, the fabulous swimming pool, peace and tranquility, with bird song and yet the town was a short walk away. Inside I was astonished at the decor and fabulous mix of old and new. Beautifully decorated, comfortable beds. Everything you would possible want to have for a wonderful, relaxing holiday. I would certainly be using Puglia Holiday Rentals again.. Wonderful.
