Relais Villa Lucia
Reviewed August 18, 2013

A typical case of an unrealized potential to be a great vacation house.
The villa is very well located in central Puglia and not far from the beaches of Ostuni. it boasts a beautiful and very clean pool and well manicured garden but suffers from poor maintenance, a total absence of any outside sign - so you must meet the host at the nearby petrol station to guide you in.
The rooms have good potential but kitchenettes are poorly equipped (old appliances, noisy fridge, gas cooker, no microwave). The broken faucets and clogged showers are annoyances that can spoil your otherwise nice time there. One of our bedrooms had no windows and main living was dark and dingy. Quality of sleep is below average with the old mattresses but rooms have brand new and very effective Samsung A/C units- a must in the heat of August. We stayed 9 nights and were a small group of nine persons including four children and a senior person.
The host was indeed omni-present as another reviewer noted (Maranello, Aug 17). he did not know much about the activities and festivals in the area.
In summary, very nice on the outside and beautiful pool (as seen in the pics) but poorly maintained. In all fairness, value for money is below average.

Just on the outskirts of Carovigno this little gem has the distinction of being lovely, welcoming, affordable, and in a perfect location for exploring the highlights of Puglia. On a main thoroughfare, the SS 16, from here you can explore the delightful villages of Ostuni, Cisternino, Locorotundo, and Alberobello. By train an easy journey to Lecce too! Together with their son Teo, Nini and Lucia run Villa Lucia with warmth and understated hospitality. They are always available to help suggest restaurants, sights, bike paths, and really go out of their way... Nini actually lead me by car, I was on a bike, to a country road where I could ride through olive groves and down to the coast and provided a cell phone in case of emergency. I joined the family for chestnut roasting and several meals and let feeling like one of the family. My apartment with separate kitchen and bath was very roomy and cozy.

Room Tip: All the apartments ( I believe there are 8 ) that I viewed were lovely.

RELAIS VILLA LUCIA e un'oasi di pace, verde e natura che trovandosi, nel bel mezzo del Salento, a soli 4 Km da Ostuni, permette di passare dalla calma e il relax piu totale alla vita sempre frizzante della Citta Bianca.Negli questi ultimi tempi l'agriturismo e diventato il vero segreto per rilassarsi e ritemprare le membra, stando a stretto contatto della natura.La struttura offre la possibilita di soggiornare in alloggi della tradizione contadina salentina degli ultimi secoli.Il gestore e sempre presente e a disposizione per ogni esigenza degli ospiti.La struttura offre la possibilita di alloggiare e trascorrere la vacanza in piccoli appartamenti, debitamente ammodernati, che racchiudono rustici appartamenti con piu posti letto, dove l'atmosfera crea un ambientazione calda e accogliente. Le camere sono dotate dei comfort necessari per trascorrere una villeggiatura in totale relax.L'azienda agrituristica produce principalmente Olio d'oliva, ma nei nostri agri coltiviamo vari ortaggi e abbiamo innumerevoli alberi di frutti dove realizziamo anche gustose marmellate. Durante il soggiorno e possibile degustare tutti i nostri prodotti.Il Nostro Rispetto per la NaturaProteggere l'ambiente e essenziale per conservare le preziose riserve naturali e la salute del nostro pianeta. Il Relais Villa Lucia e impegnata in tal senso con il rispetto di questi punti essenziali:• Utilizzo di un impianto fotovoltaico per ottenere energia pulita per tutte le necessita della struttura• Contenimento dell'inquinamento atmosferico, idrico e del suolo grazie soprattutto all'utilizzo di prodotti piu rispettosi dell'ambiente;• Corretta gestione e differenziazione dei rifiuti;• Salvaguardia della biodiversita nelle aree poste sotto il controllo diretto della struttura ricettiva;• Alimentazione sana e corretta, che attinge in parte alle produzioni biologiche regionali.FilosofiaCerchiamo di indirizzare le persone a trascorrere le loro vacanze in ambienti piu piccoli e accoglienti in cui poter entrare concretamente in contatto con le realta locali.Questa filosofia di viaggio si chiama turismo rurale, formula che promuove la conoscenza del territorio attraverso la scoperta di borghi, edifici tradizionali, prodotti agricoli e artigianali, gastronomia, alberghi diffusi, l'accoglienza semplice e discreta degli agriturismi.La nostra missione e quella di far sentire gli ospiti come a casa, in un ambiente tranquillo e solare dove poter trascorrere le proprie giornate a stretto contatto con la natura per degustare i prodotti dell'azienda, dagli ortaggi, alla frutta, alle dolci marmellate fino al nostro principale prodotto l'Olio.Il visitatore dimora, in queste splendide ed accoglienti alcove che un tempo erano luoghi di lavoro o di semplice vita quotidiana, lasciandosi avvolgere da un'atmosfera calda ed accogliente. Ospitalita per noi non si ferma solo al fornire un alloggio per un determinato periodo, ma ci spinge a far conoscere ai nostri turisti le nostre tradizioni, da quelle culinarie a quelle di vita quotidiana, infatti in particolari giornate organizziamo diversi corsi didattici a livello globale. Dalle lezioni di cucina pugliese per assaporare le "stacchioddi cu li cimi di rapi" (orecchiette con le cime di rape) alla lezione di "n'zippamu na littera" (costruiamo una stuoia), passeremo alle serate di Pizzica, dove le innumerevoli canzoni narrano le nostre origini come un libro di storia.Il soggiorno presso il Relais, sara una piacevole vacanza dove godere di Sole, di Mare e di Vento le caratteristiche principale di questa terra stupenda: il Salento!!! ... more   less
