Pretty panoramic villa with a huge veranda that overlooks Ostuni which lights up at night. Quiet and peaceful setting with its own private drive, yet a short distance from the town of Ostuni and Ceglie Messapica and a 15 minute drive to the nearest beach. The villa is spacious, clean and modern with a gated pool.

Perfect for getting away from it all with friends and family - in the countryside but very close to towns with fantastic restaurants, fresh produce, artisan shops and some of the best beaches in Italy.

Amazing stay in this peaceful and private villa. If felt like real Italian experience rather than a tourist trap. The villa is well situated between interesting towns and only a short drive to beaches. We enjoyed lovely long lunches in the villa and in Ostuni - it has to be the food capital of Italy. The kids loved the pool... more

The score and recommendation for our week-long stay at Villa Traetta would have been better had it not been for a problem with smelly tap water. The house itself and environs were generally fine and matched well with the description provided.

Management response:
