We loved our stay at Villa Eva. The villa is just ten minutes from the beautiful town of Ostuni but it feels private and peaceful. It is well situated to visit many of Puglia's nicest towns and beach clubs. The villa is clean, neat and well equipped and all the rooms are a good size. The highlight is the huge pool with generous lounges, surrounded by olive trees, it was the perfect place to relax. Angela our host was extremely helpful, she responded to all our queries immediately and helped us arrange some great activities and gave us some excellent recommendations. She went above and beyond to help us out, thanks Angela!

We spent 5 days in Trullo Liz, which is an amazing trullo/villa in the middle of the Puglia's countryside, close to Alberobello. Very peaceful and perfect to relax. The villa is very spacious and has a superb patio and outdoor space, overlooking olives trees. Wonderful swimming-pool. Check-in was easy and Antonella from Puglia Paradise were very welcoming and available at all times. We really had a fantastic stay and we hope to be able to come back. Highly recommended! Thank you Antonella and Puglia Paradise!

Wonderful location! Everything was perfect. Trullo Sabina was clean, everything in the right place and nothing was missing. Swimming pool was perfect and service was amazing. Piglia Paradise team is incredible, Massimo Grazia and Leandro are 150% available in terms of time and they have the right suggestion in order to satisfy your wishes. If you want to spend some days in Puglia you cannot do better choice of Puglia Paradise and his team

My family and I enjoyed the most incredible week at Villa Elisa with Puglia Paradise. The entire experience was perfect - seamless communication from our wonderful concierge Angela, incredibly luxurious and beautifully designed villa, and the most amazing, off-the-beaten-track part of Puglia. There are so many beautiful beaches, gorgeous historic towns and amazing wineries just a short drive away, and Angela was always available to help make our trip extra special. Would 100% recommend!

I had a great time in Villa Elisa! It is a beautiful house, and it has everything you need. The weather was perfect so we spend a lot of time in the pool. The smell in the house is fresh and everything was clean. Our host was helpfull and told us something about the historie of the house. She gives us good advise about the village Ostuni and told us ‘the must sees’.It was a perfect vacation for me!!

Puglia Paradise went above and beyond ensuring our stay was an incredibly enjoyable experience. They were on hand to help with any trip and restaurant bookings etc. and were extremely friendly and lovely to deal with. This was a special family holiday celebrating a milestone birthday and staying in Villa Margarita really made it a truly wonderful experience. The villa was beautifully decorated with Scandinavian interiors throughout - a real mix of old and new. It was gorgeous! And each bedroom had its own bathroom - very handy when in a big group. The terrace and pool side area were fabulous! Plenty of space to relax and unwind - whether you wanted to be in the sunshine or not and to make it extra special the villa had an outside pizza oven.Actually, one of our highlights from the holiday was a Pizza making night. Puglia Paradise arranged for 2 chefs to come over to the villa and show us how to make Pizza - and as a bonus - pasta too! This was a really special experience. Francesco and Valentina from Il Piatto Fumante in Castellana were so friendly and knowledgeable in their craft and their pizza was delicious!! It is a night I will always remember.I would highly recommend Puglia Paradise to anyone looking for a beautiful, stress-free and special holiday!

This villa offers glorious views of the Italian countryside. The property is large and private, the pool and deck area are relaxing and the trulli itself is very large and renovated (trulli are beautiful but traditionally very small places to stay). Its walking distance from the historic town of Martina Franca, which has great shopping and places to eat plus a nice little museum. You can reach several larger cities in reasonably short drives from here. We visited Leece, Alberobello, Ostuni, Otranto, Gallipoli, Polignano a Mare, Monopoli and Locorotondo (that's eight cities in five days) by doing morning and evening trips from the villa (sandwiching in a siesta each day, of course!). Great location and a relaxing, clean place. The property manager Leandro was very helpful as we do not speak the language. He helped us get around, find restaurants and grocery stores, whatever we needed he was there. We'll use Puglia Paradise for our next trip to Italy.

Our villa was super spacious and close to many attractions in Puglia. Most of all our villa specialist, Leandro, was the ultimate professional!

Dear Massimo, Leandro and especially Antonella,From the planning of our holiday 9 months ago to the actual day we departed after enjoying 10 days at Trullo Stefano the team have been truly amazing. Every question we had however small and trivial prior to us leaving the UK was answered quickly and efficiently and anything we needed help with whilst staying at the Trullo, Antonella was there to get things sorted.We run a guest house here in the UK so we are fully aware of how important reviews are but realisically everyone knows that no amount of checking can avert the possibility of something going wrong but that's never the issue..... it's how it is dealt with that is. And this is where you will always need an “Antonella”. She was perfect from meeting us at the local supermarket and guiding us to the Trullo in her car to being at the end of the phone to answer any questions we had and always with a smile on her face and an efficiency that almost put us to shame! She even offered to get some avocados for us from the market when I messaged her asking advise because we couldn't find any ripe ones and this was on a Sunday too. You wouldn't get anyone doing that in the UK Trullo Stefano was amazing. From the beautiful ceilings and stone structure of the buildings to the amenities, the welcome pack of goodies, the toileteries, the games rooms and the pizza oven (all of which we tried out) but being great coffee lovers to have our own little nespresso machine plus the seperate milk frother was a real bonus and treat which we enjoyed every single evening without fail. It's the little things you see. Now we knew from the reviews the Trullo was remote and it was but beautifully quiet with the poppy fields to the right and olive groves to the left it was both tranquil and relaxing. The pool was a little chilly as Italy had experienced a poor May weather wise (according to every local we chatted to!) but once you were in and the sun was out it was great. Even the swallows kept diving for a drink of water!If you are looking for somewhere truly traditional, interesting, quiet and secluded this is the place for you but remember, if you have a car (which you'll definitely require) we also managed to travel over 1000km on daily trips to the most beautiful places like, Ostuni, Poligano a Mere, Matera, Mesagne, Martina Franca, Lecce and Gallipoli. All within easy reach for an afternoon trip but watch out for the lack of indicator use by the locals!!!Many thanks to all of you for making our trip unforgettable. If we return to Italy which we certainly hope to do you can be sure we will be contacting Puglia ParadiseCheersSimon, Sara, Hannah & Christian

It was the most exacting holidays in Italy thanks to Puglia Paradise. We were in Villa Incanto nel blu in Polignano a Mare - the villa has perfect privet garden and terrace with access to the living room. Villa has 2 quiet perfect room - which one room have access to the second terrace - and one really big living room (big comfortable sofa for even more than 2 people) with beautiful fully-equipped new kitchen that offers everything from a full-size stove, fridge and oven, dishwasher and cookware, tableware and utensils. And of course there was Espresso Machine with nespresso capsules for perfect morning! :)The welcome at villa was really nice - with welcome wine and olive oil. The owners were very helpful! For sure - Puglia Paradise was PERFECT in every (Other owners should learn for them how to receive guests :) )

A M A Z I N G place to stay, rest and have fun. My and group of my friends stay in Puglia Paradise for one week in the end of May. The wather was a bit cloudy but despite this we don't have time to get bored. The villa in itself have so much to offer. From such a basic things like perfect WiFi connection (for my very important because I got to have direct connections to my work), to various relaxing facilities. The villa is modern and fully equipped with everythink we need: pots, cutlery, knives, coffee maker and more. Every room has it own TV with smart function so you can connect smartphone to them and wach whatever you want. Only one thing what we want and it wasn't there- barecue. The owner, however, listened to our request and promised that she would appear in the future. The pool was also a nice touch to whole perfection. It was cleaned 2 times during our one week stay so we doesnt have to bother about it. At the end, we can stay how long we want. We have flight from Bari at 23 and we stay in willa till 18:00. It was amazing addition from owner side. Before visiting Puglia Paradise me and my girlfriend was in love in Puglia. Right now, we are totally enchanted and we hope that it will be just entrance for visiting this region more often. Thank you one more time for our wonderful memories.

Trulli Stefano is the perfect location for a relaxing getaway. The Trulli is beautiful, has a private pool and is only few km from the sea. The highlight was the pizza oven which we used every night. Leandro was an amazing host and provided some great restaurant recommendations. Would stay here again and recommend to anyone.

We stayed with 11 people for one week in Trulli of Stars from Puglia Paradise and it was amazing. We loved it; the house was very comfortable and complete, as well with an indoor swimming pool as an outdoor jacuzzi. The view was astonishing, we used the outdoor kitchen and pizza oven several times, but the indoor kitchen was also very complete. There is a lot to do in the area, beautiful beaches, and nice places to visit, really great!

Just got back from an amazing stay at trulli of stars, one of the various accommodations on offer by Puglia Paradise. It truly felt like paradise - set in total tranquility among olive groves - not a sound except for the chirping of birds, the buzzing of bees and the rustling of leaves. The property was lovely and equipped with all the necessary amenities for a relaxing break. I surely miss cooking and enjoying breakfast on the most amazing terrace every morning. The outdoor jacuzzi and the indoor pool were also super. The property also has a table tennis area which was great fun.The property surely deserves 5 stars but our hostess Angela was the cherry on the cake. She was ever so friendly and extremely helpful all throughout our stay. She was always literally a message away and was always so quick to suggest places to visit, restaurants to dine in and any amendments to our planned itenanary. She even reserved our table at all the restaurants and each one was fantastic. She couldn't have been any more hospitable and that surely added to our truly enjoyable time there. It was a fantastic, truly unforgettable holiday in Puglia paradise. We will be back!

Just had an amazing stay at Trulli of Stars. This property is amazing...so peaceful and the view is like something out of movies. It has an outdoor jacuzzi and indoor spa, table tennis, cosy living area (with Netflix also available), large outdoor grounds overlooking olive trees. Angela was so helpful...she gave us a warm welcome and even booked some amazing restaurants for us. She also recommended some places we should visit. We were not disappointed. Puglia is beautiful, the Trullo we stayed in was magical and Angela was first class! Couldn't have asked for anything more. It really is deserving of the name Puglia Paradise!
10:22 22 Apr 19
We stayed at Trulli of Stars by Puglia Paradise for 5 days and it truly was paradise. The location is magnificent, right in the middle of the countryside. So peaceful and quiet. The views from our villa were second to none. The villa itself is amazing. Five lovely bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, a fully functional kitchen with dishwasher and washing machine. Villa was clean and tidy and very well kept. The outdoor heated jacuzzi is the perfect spot to relax in with a lovely glass of Puglian wine, just watching the beautiful sunset. The indoor swimming pool was clean and the perfect spot for a bit of morning exercise. There was even table tennis for those active visitors. Angela, our host, is the most perfect host ever. So sweet and friendly and always ready to help. On our request, she even booked different restaurants for us at different locations. Needless to say, food was delicious.Angela, is a total asset to the experience of Puglia Paradise.Honestly, I do not have anything negative to say about the place, location or host. Will surely return.Mark

At Villa Margareta, we felt like we were living on a movie set! This property is spectacular. It's surrounded by olive trees and features panoramic views of the Adriatic Sea. The house itself is modern and luxurious. We actually changed our plans during the week we spent in Puglia so that we could spend MORE time at our villa!! We made dinner in the full chef's kitchen, and spent a lot of time in various indoor and outdoor seating areas. When we did venture out, we found Villa Margareta to be perfectly situated: Just minutes from the hilltop town of Ostuni, and within easy reach of all of the major sights of this region.Giovanna and Massimo were perfect hosts: Booking the property was easy, and Giovanna met us at the house in person to check in. She spent time talking to us about the area, and continued to be helpful during our week at Villa Margareta, offering helpful suggestions for things to do and see.We are so happy to have discovered Puglia, and hope to come back some day. When we do, we will definitely book one of the Puglia Paradise properties. Having the right home and being hosted by great people makes all the difference.

We stayed at Trullo Badessa for a lovely week in the countryside equidistant from Alberobello and Locorotondo. The Trullo is on a working farm and commands fantastic views over the surrounding countryside. The sunsets are fantastic as the western horizon is so far away.Outside are two patios, one under a verandah for eating and the other given shelter by a tall tree for much of the day.Inside the kitchen is well equipped and big enough for two of you to prepare a meal together. Both bathrooms are pretty as are the two bedrooms and living room.The whole Trullo was spotlessly clean when we arrived and the welcome hamper was plentiful with enough for dinner, breakfast, a few snacks and a bottle of wine. They even include a bag of charcoal for the barbecue.Best of all was Grazia, our host, who looked after us beautifully. She answered every request for advice or help immediately at pretty much any time of day and was happy to book restaurants, tours and tell you where to go or where to shop. She made us feel extremely welcome and was the extra bit of polish great service delivers.In all, a beautiful and relaxing place to stay with great customer service.

We loved our stay at Trullo Incanto D’Itria. It was such a beautiful place and the most perfect homebase while we explored Puglia. The Puglia Paradise team was outstanding. They were very accessible before and during our stay, and they made sure we had everything we needed for a wonderful stay at Trullo Incanto D'Itria! Thank you!

We truly enjoyed our experience at this place. I would highly recommend it to families looking to explore this side of Italy.

We had a wonderful stay at Trullo Incanto D’Itria hosted by Puglia Paradise. We stayed for 4 nights with another couple and found everything to be in perfect order. The pool was wonderful. The grounds are stunning. Staying in a refurbished Trullo is an experience that should not be missed. The staff at Puglia Paradise was incredibly accommodating. They shopped for groceries, planned excursions, were available for advice at any moment and made our trip one that we'll fondly remember forever. We would recommend this location for couples, families, and groups of travelers and anyone who would like a truly relaxing, peaceful, authentic Italian experience!

We spent our summer holidays in "Trulli of Stars" and we had the best experience ever! The Villa is beautiful, with a breathtaking view from the terrace, furnished with taste and fully equipped. There is plenty of space and ways to spend quality time for both adults and children. The host was super nice and provided a top notch service throughout the stay, he was always available with our queries and needs. We will definitely be back in the future!!
09:54 24 Jul 18
Puglia Paradise ensured that our family had the most amazing summer experience. 11 of us, including our kids stayed in Villa Girasole for 10 days. After exploring the magical region during the day, everyone couldn't wait to get back to our villa. Evenings were spent swimming, barbeq's and tennis games. The service was outstanding and every little detail was taken care of by the team.
21:25 01 Jul 18
