My party of five family and friends stayed at the Villa Margareta, one of Puglia Paradise's five-star properties, for five nights in June 2019. The house's location is perfect for visiting the charming hilltop town of Ostuni, only a five minute's drive. From the villa we also visited Alberobello, Polignano a Mare, Lecce, and Matera (do not miss it). It was tough to leave Villa Margareta as it was so beautiful, peaceful and comfortable. The outdoor area is phenomenal with so many areas to lounge in, a sparkling pool that was quite warm, and even a pizza oven, which we used one night. The bedrooms are outstanding. The linens, towels, mattresses and pillows are all excellent. The kitchen and living room are amazing. The furniture and design is out of Architectural Digest. I was especially impressed with the service that this agency provided. The home's property manager, Angela, was so helpful, from making dinner reservatio
We have spent several holidays with Puglia Paradise and we can only say good things about them. The villas are always beautifully finished, spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped and managed. Any question we had whether about the villa itself or the towns, restaurants or area has always been answered almost immediately by WhatsApp by the Puglia Paradise team. An all round excellent company, we would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to visit this lovely region of IT. Rachel Murray
From the moment we booked this property the service was excellent; communication was regular, detailed, helpful. The property manager was on hand 24 hrs a day and responded to requests promptly. A small leak in one bathroom was dealt with within an hour. The property itself was lovely , very clean, well maintained. As a family of 5 , with 2 teenagers, we loved the pool and the boule area. There were many discrete spaces in the large garden where we could all be together, or separate for quiet individual reading time. The BBQ and Pizza oven by the pool were brilliant, so evening meals al fresco were magic as darkness fell and the lights around the terraces and gardens came on automatically. There is plenty to do locally and Ostuni, only a few minutes away by car boasts many good restaurants.
The perfect villa. What a lovely home. Everything is perfectly designed with no detail spared!
Villa Margareta Exceeded Expectations. We were a group of eight that visited Puglia at the end of September. Villa Margareta exceeded all of our expections! It is beautifully designed and elegantly and comfortably appointed! From the gorgeous bedrooms with ensuite to the bocce court! There is plenty of seating in all areas of the interior and exterior. A gorgeous salt water pool with beautiful views of the Adriatic! A rooftop bar with views of the olive groves and the Adriatic! A very well equipped massive kitchen and gas range. Angela was very responsive and met all of our needs! The pizza night was exceptional and the array and variation of antipasti and pizza was incredible! Thanks very much Puglia Paradise! We hope to back one day!!
This home met every expectation we all had. It was stunning. The views were to die for, the kitchen was fully equipped with great cookware, even Le Creuset pans. The 4 bedrooms all had king size beds and were extremely comfortable. We also appreciated the dishwasher. This home is quite close to Ostuni so picking up groceries from Familia was very easy, or having dinner in town was also very convenient. Angelina, our concierge, was so accommodating, nothing was too difficult for her. We appreciated how quickly she responded and got us what we needed. Thank you again for ensuring our group had a fabulous holiday. Jessie & Larry
We had a wonderful time in this fabulous villa. It was as stunning as the photos depict and easily accommodated our party of 8. Angela was welcoming, receptive to our questions, helpful in suggesting local activities - all contributing to a memorable Italian holiday.
We stayed at Villa Margareta (very close to Ostuni) for 5 nights. What an incredible experience! We were a group of 8 people, celebrating various life milestones, including a 70th birthday, and wanted a luxurious home base in Puglia. Puglia Paradise and their team were gracious hosts, and the villa was breathtaking! All the conveniences of a home away from home, and perfect for relaxing days by the pool, or day trips to the all the amazing towns and beaches in Southern Puglia. I would highly recommend booking with Puglia Paradise, and even taking part in some of the extra services they offer. We booked the pizza cooking lesson, and it was a highlight of the trip!
An absolutely lovely, peaceful villa in the countryside. All 4 bedrooms have wonderful beds! The kitchen is well equipped down to excellent knives! Angela was most helpful with planning tours, getting groceries in for our arrival and arranging divers (as well as a rental car). We would happily go back to Villa Margarite!
This was a great villa. We were comfortable, relaxed, in its no fuss and yet tastefully designed interior and outdoor areas. Generous in size; inviting pool; state of the art kitchen utensils (the juicer and espresso maker well used); inspiring locally made crockery (Nicola Fasano); they even allowed us the use of the garden herbs and fruit (fiorone fig tree growing wild just outside gave birth to multiple harvests). The bed was supremely comfortable and we slept so well in the shuttered darkness. My family got quite hooked on the Pétanque lawn (and competitive too......) The outdoor pizza oven was so much fun- it became the centre of a delightful social when tens of pizzas were conjured out by our lovely pizza husband and wife teacher duo. We also enjoyed Ostuni nearby, Grotaglie’s ceramiche shops, Cisternino, Ceglie Messapica and the lovely La Dolce Vita beach club. Ostuni market was a genuine (so cheap!) and fabulous bazaar. The slow food restaurants including Masseria Salinola around the region delicious. All in all an amazing villa and lovely break. The grounds were wonderfully kept by Rolando- thank you. Thank you Angela our concierge in particular for helping us almost as soon as we reached villa Margareta and throughout the holiday. And Massimo for his early rapid and friendly responses Thank you.
We had an incredible time at the Puglia Paradise Villa! It was our first family holiday trip and it couldn't have been more perfect. The villa was amazing - very clean and spacious. The pool was pristine, pizza night was memorable and we had ample space to enjoy comfortably in our own corridors. Cannot wait to go back!
Lovely Puglia. Had a great two weeks at Villa Margarita in Puglia. Property was outstanding and perfect location! Will definitely be coming back.
Perfection. Villa Margareta is perfect in every way. The villa is stunningly beautiful, with fabulous outdoor space. Everything about the villa, the bedrooms, the pool, the numerous seating areas are styled to perfection. Puglia Paradise who manage the property were fantastic and assisted with car hire, transfers, taxis, restaurant reservations and organised the most fabulous Pizza Chefs to come to the villa to cook for us - this is not to be missed and was the highlight of our stay. The villa is situated a 5-10 minute drive from beautiful Ostuni where you can find a plethora of restaurants - that is if you can bear to leave the tranquillity of Villa Margareta!
Fantastic stay in a spectacular villa! I stayed in Villa Margareta with my family during our trip throughout the fantastic Puglia. Villa Margareta has exceeded our expectations and has so many strengths that I don't even know where to start. Maybe I should start from the wonderful swimming pool with sea view, or from the interior finishes, or from the very comfortable bedrooms. In short, it was a perfect stay made unforgettable by Angela's support, always available and reachable for any need. It is the second time we stayed in a villa managed by Puglia Paradise and we have had confirmation of a professionalism and reliability that is really difficult to find. For this, we recommend Villa Margareta and Puglia Paradise, the top of the top in Puglia!
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!
We spent our second week in Villa Margetha just outside Ostuni where we were joined by our three adult children and partners. What a spectacular villa, amazing interior/exterior design and a kitchen to die for!! Here, we were greeted by Angela from Puglia Paradise who helped us to settle in and again was on hand to make restaurant recommendations etc. We found it hard to leave the villa as it was just perfect for a family holiday. Our favorite night was the Pizza Night arranged by Puglia Paradise and hosted by Valentino and his lovely wife Francesca. We all learned and practiced making fabulous pizzas and pasta. It was all great fun and very tasty! Valentino went to great lengths to ensure we had a memorable night and we really want to acknowledge their kindness! We also took a great boat trip from Poliganano a Mare and swam in the caves. Angela helped us organize a wonderful restaurant in Ostuni (Piaza di Cathedrale) where we celebrated my significant roundy birthday! Once again I have to say that Massimo got the villa choice spot on for our family requirements. We will be holidaying with Puglia Paradise again and would recommend that you consider them for your next holiday – you won’t be disappointed!!
Massimo, handled our booking with professionalism and with an efficiency that is rare, having travelled worldwide, it was such a pleasure to find this in Puglia! The villa Margareta we stayed in was of 5-star standard and met all our expectations and much more. Nothing was too much trouble and every request was met with an immedacy. For those of you thinking to book a stay here - all one can say, quite simply is - why would you not? a little piece of paradise next to the beautiful white walled city of Ostuni The property is MrandMrsSmith worthy ! Definitely planning a next trip with more family and friends !
We had an incredible time at Puglia Paradise. The space was spacious enough for 8 of us and very clean. The hosts make it very convenient for us by providing ample beach towels and providing concierge service available through whatsapp. We booked a pizza night one night for a birthday and the couple that came to cook/teach us were amazing. The whole experience was a memorable one for our family. Thank you!
Villa Marghereta is an outstanding place,il looks exactly as the amazing pictures online. Massimo and Angela are great hosts, kind and helpful. We spent five days at the villa with our kids (6 and 3) and fully enjoyed the stay. We totally recommend this place and will be back for sure very soon.
A wonderful house with beautiful views and tasteful furnishings. Exceptional service. Highly recommended.
This is a superb villa that was just about perfect in every way. Massimo, our host, was equally excellent, responding to every query with lightening quick speed.
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.
Phantastische Villa. Wir waren 4 Paare , die eine Woche in dieser tollen Villa verbracht haben. Besonders genossen haben wir die großartige Küche mit ausreichenden Geschirr, die viel Platz zum gemeinsamen Kochen und daher zur Kommunikation beiträgt.Hervorragender Kräutergarten!! Ein gepflegter Pool (leichtes Salzwasser, viel angenehmer als Chlor) mit tollen Loungemöbel daneben zum Genießen der Morgensonne, ausreichend Mobiliar rund ums Haus, sodass viel Privatsphäre für jeden bleibt. Wunderschöne Zimmer, nur eines ist im Vergleich zu den drei anderen etwas klein, vor allen das Duschbad. Absolut ruhige Lage mit Meerblick mitten in den großartigen Olivenhainen.Kann man unbedingt nur weiterempfehlen.
My family and I had an amazing time at Massimo's place. The beautifully appointed house is newly built with four bedrooms (all with ensuite bathrooms) and amazing indoor and outdoor kitchens. There are so many different spots to lounge - from the outdoor living room, the shaded palapa next to the pool, to the rooftop bar. The house has all the amenities you need to feel at home. The location was good, just minutes from the beautiful town of Ostuni. Giovanna was an amazing and attentive host - she gave us some incredible recommendations of things to do during our stay. Highlight was dinner at Masseria il Frantoio, which she booked for us. We couldn't recommend this place enough! It is perfect for a getaway with family or friends!
Traumhafte Ferienvilla. Diese Villa läßt keine Wünsche offen. Liegt etwas abseits von Ostuni. Sehr ruhig und naturnah mit traumhaften Blick auf das Meer.
Sehr schönes Haus nahe Ostuni - sehr gepflegtes Haus. - sehr guter Service/Betreuung durch örtliche Betreuung - nochmals vielen Dank an Giovanna - lediglich eine Kaffeemaschine bzw. ein Vollautomat fehlten, Nepresso-Maschine und italienische Espressokannen waren aber vorhanden - kleines Lebensmittelpaket/Getränke sind bei Anreise im Kühlschrank, weiteres kann vorab bestellt werden -. großer Supermarkt ca. 5-10 Autominuten entfernt - Pkw notwendig
This villa is truly special, the layout and space inside and out is amazing. All the fixtures and fittings are top quality. We had brilliant service during our stay with super quick responses and fantastic local information. We also took advantages of the additional services organised by Massimo’s team, the masseuse was superb! Don’t hesitate to book this stunning place, you’ll have a wonderful and truly memorable time!
Faultless villa in perfect position Villa Margareta completely exceeded our expectations, we had a blissful holiday exploring Puglia but our most perfect moments were cooking in the outside kitchen with a view of olive trees and the adriatic sea twinkling on the horizon. The villas host, giovanna, was an invaluable help to us suggesting restaurants and booking them for us and made our holiday easy and stress free, we would love to come back.
A wonderful villa in a lovely location with a view to the sea. The team at Puglia Paradise provide exceptional service, before your stay, at check in, during your stay and at check out. Nothing is too much trouble to enhance your stay. Thankyou so much. We highly recommend Villa Margareta and Puglia Paradise. We'll be using them again.
Myself and 7 friends had the most amazing week at Villa Margareta at the end of May 2018. The villa looks even better than the photographs in real life, and the 8 of us enjoyed relaxing by the pool taking in the breathtaking views down to the sea. Being that none of the group spoke a word of Italian, Massimo was always on hand to offer recommendations and even book us into restaurants and day trips. It made our holiday a truly relaxing experience and we thank Massimo for all of his kindness. In our time here we had day trips out to Ostuni, Polignano a mare, Martina Franca and Monopoli - all were fantastic! The rooms are decorated perfectly and ample room for 8 guests, we enjoyed the BBQ and pizza oven area and watch the sun go down with a glass of wine in hand. We would compel anyone to stay at this gorgeous villa and can't wait to go back in the future!
Fabulous Villa. We have rented a number of villas over the last 10 years and can honestly say this was one of the best. The modern style, the beautiful accommodations, the sea view, the pool, the services offered by the management company Puglia Paradise - all made for a wonderful week. We were 4 couples and we all loved it. Each bedroom was an ensuite and the beds and pillows were very comfortable. Even when we had an issue with the a/c Massimo responded with a fix within an hour. If you go, be sure and book the pizza making class. It was so much fun and the pizzas cooked in the wood fired oven there were delicious.
Absolutely stunning villa with fabulous views and gorgeous surrounds. This property exceeded all expectations - the entire villa is beautifully appointed and was perfect for our holiday. The manager Massimo was fantastic and could not have been more helpful. Every bedroom has its own bathroom - with each one configured differently. The Villa has so much space, a variety of living areas and lots of thoughtful touches, including a welcome food pack, Aesop hand wash and hand cream and a well stocked pantry. The pool is beautifully maintained, with turkish towels provided for guests to use and plenty of sunbeds,umbrellas and shaded areas for relaxing. It is located about a 10 min drive from Ostuni and very easy to get to a good sized supermarket for supplies. I would stay at this property again in a heartbeat and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fantastic villa in Puglia.
La maison est très agréable. Nous y avons séjourné à 2 familles (4adultes et 4 enfants). La description correspond à la réalité. La localisation est idéale pour visiter la région des pouilles
Beautiful villa and great service. We stayed four nights at the beautiful Villa Margareta via Puglia Paradise. We had such an amazing experience; not only is the villa absolutely stunning with everything you need for the perfect holiday (and then some!) but the team were also super helpful and made sure our stay was as smooth as possible. The villa is by far one of the best places I have ever stayed at. I can whole-heartedly recommend booking via Puglia Paradise, and hope to be back in Puglia.
Amazing stay in stunning villa in Puglia. The villa is even more stunning in real. Modern, clean, all the amenities needed, calm, private and very well taken care of. The pool and view from the terrace instantly put you on holiday mood. Even though we weren't there in summer and could not use the pool, the villa and sun of Puglia offered our family a great holiday. The villa is also amazingly located in Puglia. Close to beautiful Ostuni, just 30-40 min max from all the towns that are worth visiting and 15min from beautiful beaches. Ideal location! But of course, this stay was made even better by the outstanding service provided by Puglia Paradise and Massimo. Always on call, ready to help and give us useful tips on the region. Thanks again for making our Easter break so restful and enjoyable. We will be back!!
Amazing service from Puglia Paradise, from beginning to start. The welcome food package, tips for the local region and even when we had forgotten something at the villa Massimo and his team got it sent over to us in a matter of days. Thats what I call prestige service :-) thanks again Puglia paradise for an amazing stay and your careful outstanding customer service
Perfekter Aufenthalt in sehr schöner Villa! Wir - zwei Familien - haben den Urlaub in der sehr schönen Villa Margareta sehr genossen. Die Villa liegt in einem ruhigen Areal, zwischen Ostuni und dem Meer. Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt. Schon die Begrüßung durch Massimo von der Agentur PugliaParadise war herzlich. Auch während unseres Aufenthaltes konnten wir uns bei Fragen an Massimo wenden und haben sofort die nötigen Informationen erhalten. Das ganze Team der Agentur war sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Die Villa ist sehr schön eingerichtet. Die Schlafzimmer mit En-Suite-Bäder sind großzügig und komfortabel. Der Wohnbereich ist einladend und man kann auch bei kühlerem Wetter abends zUSmmensitzen, dank der ausreichenden Sitzgelegenheiten. Die Küche ist mit allem ausgestattet, was man benötigt. Durch die offene Gestaltung macht das gemeinsame Kochen sehr viel Spaß. Endlich auch ein Ferienhaus mit ausreichender Ausstattung was Geschirr und Gläser betrifft. Auch im Außenbereich hat man sich bei der Gestaltung Gedanken gemacht. Alles ist modern, freundlich und sehr gemütlich. Es gibt verschiedene Lounge-Bereiche, so dass auch eine Gruppe mit acht Personen ausreichend Privatsphäre geniesst. Der Pool ist durch seine Maße ideal zum Schwimmen. Auch wenn das Wasser im Oktober sehr kühl war. Toll waren auch der Grill, derPizzaofen (hier hatten wir einen sehr schönen "Pizzabackabend", von Puglia Paradise organisiert) und die Boccia-Bahn. Das Haus hat auch eine sehr gute Ausgangslage, zahlreiche schöne Orte in Apulien zu besichtigen. Alles in allem ist die Villa und Puglia Paradise sehr zu empfehlen.
A special place! We truly had a magical week in this stunning property! As a family of 4 with two energetic little girls, we were so happy with the villa, large pool, BBQ and garden. The outside spaces were ideal for us and so comfortable for soaking up the sun and enjoying the sea view. The interior is beautifully decorated and very well equipped. Ideally located only a short drive from Ostuni and the sea, the property is also very quiet and peaceful. Perfect for a relaxing holiday! We also had a wonderful experience getting to know Massimo and his team at Puglia Paradise - their professional service and extra care was the best we have experienced.
So beautiful we didn’t want to leave! Villa Margarets 8352844 Villa Margareta is a Puglia paradise, a place so beautiful we did not want to leave. It sits in the middle of an olive grove, and although newly built it fits the landscape perfectly. The villa is both elegant and cosy, tastefully furnished and equipped with everything you can think of. The many and varied outdoor areas are perfect. Our group of people of different ages all found favourite spots, some seeking peace and quiet in the shade with a good read and a glass of local wine, others enjoying the pool and sunbathing all day. The evenings are pure magic, with everything you need to entertain, both in- and outdoors. That is, if you do not want to visit one of the many great restaurants in the picturesque “white city” Ostuni, just a few minutes away, or any of the other charming towns near by. The property is all the ad describes, and much more. Beautiful, comfortable, clean and well kept with great wifi. The service provided was excellent, and I would not hesitate to recommend Villa Margareta, for friends, families or other groups wanting a luxurious stay in the absolutely wonderful Puglia. For those wanting to explore the area, there are clean beaches, historic towns and much more to visit. A trip to the trullitown Alberobello is worth while, so are the many masserias open for tourists. A trip to the stunning Lecce is recommended, and the same goes for the many beautiful small towns along the coast. We are really hooked on the pugliese cooking, with the seafood as a favourite. Simply put; If you have a chance to stay at Villa Margareta in Puglia, do not hesitate – there nothing not to love about it!
Amazing villa in wonderful area. I spent 1 week with my family and my parents in July 2017. We knew the area quite a lot but It was our first time staying close to Ostuni. Villa Margareta has been recently built and designed with a great teste; it is really well organized with its 4 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, and equipped with high-end forniture. We could really relax in the quiet of that area, having in front of us the sea and a stunning pool (14 meters long!). Making pizza was a real experience for us! I admit we were all very surprised about how good was the position of Villa Margareta: just 5 minute drive to the center of Ostuni, known as the White Town, and just 12 minute drive to some wonderful beaches. We definitely recommend this beautiful villa.
I stayed with friends at Villa Margareta just outside of Ostuni in Puglia. The villa was extraordinary. Incredible views over olive groves, stunning building and furnishings of the highest quality. Areas to relax in every area of the house - by the pool, by the woodfire oven, on the roof, outdoor terrace. There is even a bocce court! We were four people with our own double rooms and bathrooms. Massimo, our host was super helpful, friendly and attentive. Highly recommend.
We had a wonderful vacation and an amazing trip thanks to Massimo and his Team. We can highly Recommend Puglia Paradise for a stay in Puglia. We will definitely go back and surely use the same high quality services again. Great work, best customer experience, and beautiful villas !
