We spent a very happy family vacation in August at the Villa Meo Evoli, a place from another era. There was ample room in the villa and the garden to give each one his/her own space. The large pool (20 m x 10 m) was a favorite of both adults and children. Drinks and dinners on the veranda, with a view of the sea in the distance, brought everyone together in the evening. Our gracious hosts, Anne and Leonardo Meo Evoli were on site, but out of sight, to assist when needed and give us tips on local activities. From our base at the villa, we visited several beautiful sites of Puglia. Everyone loved Puglia, its weather, delicious foods and above all the friendly people.
