“We loved it and would come back any time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

La dolce villa is a superbe accommodation with everything you need and more. Very spacious and tastefully decorated. The villa ist just a 5min drive from the city center of Ostuni by car and ideally located for all important visits within the region in Puglia within 20min - 2hrs (Ostuni beach, Monopoli, Martina Franca, Alberobello, Noci, Bari, Brindisi, Lecce, Gallipoli, Marina di Leuca, Matera, etc.).

Giovanni was a great host and took care of us. Always available for any questions and very helpful. Thank you!

“A haven of peace and tranquility in beautiful Puglia.”

I stayed in La Dolce for two weeks with my husband and two boys age three and one. The villa is beautifully decorated and very spacious. The veranda is well kept and has lovely views.

Ostuni is a short drive away(5mins) and most evenings we ate in the square or had ice cream. Plenty of restaurants and cafes which are very child friendly.
We also visited the beaches which were very quiet at this time of year, perfect for us.

The weather was probably the only disappointment factor on this wonderful holiday. We had two or three thunder storms but the kids loved them, some cloudy days, probably nine days of good weather.

All in all this was a fabulous first holiday for our family and I would like to thank La Dolce for making our stay so pleasant and enjoyable. We will be back next year. Thank you.

“Perfect Base to explore Puglia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Great location if you're happy to be away from other tourists. We found that being close to Ostuni was ideal as it is very pretty and has lots of restaurants and bars. Make sure that you pay for parking. Further afield we really enjoyed Cisternino, Locorotondo and Alberobello so became very familiar with that road. Also liked Brindisi; and Campomarina which we discovered on the way to Galipoli and a must if you want to swim in the Ionian sea. Took a while to locate a suitable beach on the Adriatic side but eventually we found Pilone - accessible from a car park for €3.00 per day

“Parfait et superbe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 for a stay in August 2013
Google Translation

La maison est extrêmement bien située, que ce soit pour visiter la côte adriatique, l'intérieur des terres comme Alberobello, ou même aller à Matera en Basilicate.

La maison est très jolie, bien équipée, une suite parentale avec dressing et salle d'eau privative, et 2 autres chambres avec une autre salle d'eau.

Nous étions 6 amis a y séjourner et tout s'est vraiment très bien passée.

La literie est excellente.

Le seul inconvénient, c'est le chien des voisins qui n'aime pas que l'on aille dans la piscine et qui aboie régulièrement, mais bon ça va quand même.

Il manquerait juste un vrai barbecue ;)

“Splendida villetta a due passi dalla Città Bianca.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013 for a stay in August 2013
Google Translation

Superato il cancello, un vialetto composto da piccoli sassolini bianchi conduce all'ingresso della Dolce Villa. Circondata da un giardino sempre curato, che sul retro presenta una piscina e un piccolo trullo restaurato, la Dolce Villa è dotata di ogni comfort che si possa immaginare. Aria condizionata, ampio parcheggio, patio con sdraio per prendere il sole, ogni dettaglio è stato pensato per offrire agli ospiti tutto ciò di cui hanno bisogno per rilassarsi e dimenticare lo stress della vita. All'interno dell'abitazione si possono trovare due stanze dotate di letto matrimoniale, una delle quali dispone anche di bagno privato e stanzino guardaroba. Un secondo bagno è invece presente sul corridoio, fornito di tutti i sanitari e di lavatrice. Una terza stanza è fornita invece di due letti singoli. L'ampio soggiorno contiene un tavolo da pranzo, televisione, stereo e un bellissimo divano in pelle bianca che fronteggia il grande camino. L'angolo cucina è dotato di un comodissimo ripiano al centro che permette di preparare sia veloci spuntini che pasti più complessi. Gli elettrodomestici tengono conto sia delle esigenze di ospiti mediterranei (macchinetta per l'espresso) che degli ospiti del nord europa (bollitore per il thè). Un porticato dotato di un secondo tavolo per cenare all'aperto e di divanetto e poltroncine da giardino, si affaccia sul retro della casa e sulla sopracitata piscina. Sul lato della casa una scaletta permette l'accesso a una ampia terrazza che offre la possibilità di spaziare con lo sguardo sul circondario. L'unico rammarico è stato da parte nostra l'aver soggiornato una sola settimana in questo fantastico angolo della Puglia.

PS: il proprietario, una persona gentilissima e sempre disponibile, ha contribuito con la sua solarità a rendere il nostro soggiorno ancora più piacevole.
