I’m Massimo Valentini, founding director of Puglia Paradise Srl.
I founded Puglia Paradise in 2016 with one goal: to provide beautiful villas in Puglia with 5-star hotel-style services.
Our mission is to exceed guests’ expectations from every point of view.
Today we are a well established full-service rental company managing 25 hand-picked exclusive villas in Puglia and our villa portfolio is growing very quickly.
I’m an electrical engineer and before starting Puglia Paradise I’d been working for 10 years in the energy business. That required me to travel all around the world for much of the time. For both business and leisure I was staying in 5 and 4-star hotels, enjoying the great services provided together with a nice hotel room. I admit I easily got used to these amenities and I wanted them in every single accommodation.
While on holidays in Europe, I always struggled to find villas with the exceptional services I was used to in hotels. I’m talking about the personal assistance before arrival (I don’t like cold and automatic emails), great assistance during the stay, late and early check-in, perfectly cleaned rooms, efficient daily maid service, high-quality essentials, efficient transfer, tailor made suggestions about places to visit and where to eat based on my actual preferences, etc.
In general I realized that finding a wonderful villa with 5-star services was much more complicated than to simply find a villa. This is even more true in Puglia where in the last 10 years the number of villas with private pools has been growing.
Then the idea for Puglia Paradise was born, while I was kayaking along the rocky coast of Polignano a Mare (an experience I always recommend to sports guests).
