This place is remarkable! All was perfect The apartment was large, Beautifully decorated Swimming pool very relaxing Breakfast exceptionally furnished with excellent high quality products James and his team are wonderful and so caring We’ll come back as often as possible
Where do I even begin to describe the dream that is The Proud Garden? This place is absolutely magical oasis in the world - a place of peace and beauty where I was able to completely disconnect and relax while also having a wonderful jumping off point to explore the surrounding areas. Close to shops in Carovigno and the beautiful city of Ostuni, plus the lovely beaches of Torre Guaceto and Egnazia, everything is a short drive away if you can possibly manage to force yourself to leave the perfect pool and property. The rooms are beautifully decorated, comfortable, clean and new and with only 4 of them it feels often like you have the whole villa to yourself. Most days I was the only one lying by the pool with an occasional visit from Pea the cat. The breakfast is delicious, the gardens are exquisite and the roof deck is a perfect place to watch the sunset or the stars. I want to thank my host James for creating this one of a kind place to escape from the world and for going absolutely above and beyond looking after me so kindly while I was recovering from a car accident. I cannot wait to return to the Proud Garden someday and would absolutely never stay anywhere else in Puglia!…
Third trip to The Proud Garden and once again didn’t disappoint, it’s such a lovely place run by the fabulous James. It is beautiful and tranquil but you can still get out and explore local towns, beaches etc... Highly recommended. Thanks James for another great holiday.
Returned from the TPG on Wednesday and before I landed back in the UK I wished I was back there. My 2nd visit to this amazing place ( my first about 2 years ago) this place just gets better and better. I felt totally relaxed due to the tranquil surroundings and the hospitality of James who was just an amazing host. This is such a retreat for me where I could chill, read and do nothing or just a 5 min drive into town to find some wonderful restaurants, historic buildings etc or just a trip to the beach. Mainly it’s TPG that is the biggest attraction for me - a pure gem - I cant wait to return
Cannot express how much I love The Proud Garden,if you want to recharge your mind and body,look no further. Peaceful & chilled out,but only 2 miles to the town,we had a wonderful week returning for our 3rd visit,We celebrated 2 special birthdays during our week ,our group took over the 4 rooms and having the exclusive hire really makes it special for us with our friends. We love having days by the pool and sun downers on the roof terrace,27 degrees of clear blue skies for the very end of September too! weather was perfect,James & Pea are the purrfect hosts ;-) just book it and see for yourselves..
