I've been to Villa Messera many times to enjoy this most elegant part of Puglia, the region I originally came from.
My boyfriend and I can truly relax here, at the pool and in the sun in this fascinating countryside. We have two different coasts to choose from both are 30 minutes from the Villa. The sea in and around this area is marvelous, brilliant green and transparent.
Last summer we spent each day at a different beach, sand or stones depending on our preference.
The restaurants in this area serve an array of fresh fish dishes every day close to the sea. We also had the choice of a quick lunch with bread and grilled octopus. In the evenings we went to numerous locales: Alberobello, Locorotondo, Martina Franca, Cisternino, Ostuni and enjoyed the different cultural events available there, a drink or two and/or a dinner in the white old township with their special atmosphere.
The hosts Alessandra and Vito are very nice and kind. They were available to fullfill any need we had. We will for sure come back here.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed October 11, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My mum, boyfriend and I had a wonderful, relaxing 5 day stay at Alessandra's villa. The villa is clean, modern, spacious and cool. There is an above ground swimming pool and the grounds are beautiful and big, we miss sitting outside smelling the fresh air with the sound of the waterfall in the small fish pond. Alessandra and her husband are the most lovely welcoming hosts you could imagine. They provided food for our arrival, coffee for our stay, was on hand for any questions or recommendations and was very gracious with me when I had to advise of a breakage in the villa. We cannot wait to return (with a breakagwide free visit!)

“Fantastic stay in a great location ”
Reviewed September 5, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed for one week at Villa Messera and it was perfect. The villa had everything we needed, the grounds were big and there was plenty of space for playing and sunbathing. Our 4 year old daughter loved the big pool which was clean and lovely and cool on a hot day. We made use of the local markets and the kitchen at the villa and cooked a BBQ and a pizza in the outdoor wood burning oven. The owners came and met us in Locorotondo and guided us to the property. They were very helpful and keen to see we had a good time. It was nice and quiet and private but we were easily able to travel to Martina Franca or Alberobello for sightseeing or shopping. I would recommend this villa to anyone wanting to stay in that part of Puglia.

“Ideal for location & relaxation.”
Reviewed August 21, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Villa, grounds & pool are all one could need on location. Villa large, airy and very well stocked. Quiet and private.Wonderful welcome from Alessandra, who speaks adequate English. Car essential for exploration. Location is ideal for visiting Alberobello, Locorotondo & Martina F. Once road between Locorotondo & Martina F reopens it will be easy access to autostrada & thence the length of Puglia. Recommend the pizzeria just before you get to Martina F (Alexandra knows the one) but get there before 2030! Terrific value. Also Trattoria Terra Madre in Alberobello - home grown veg cooked superbly. Alessandria is always available by mobile. Abbiamo passato una vacanza incredible, Alessandra! Mille, mile grazie!

“Perfect”
Reviewed June 21, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Visited Villa Messer in June and it was all we expected and more. The facilities are first rate.
Our host Allessandra and her husband Vito couldnt be more helpful.
The location was perfect for visiting nearby towns.
In a rural setting amongst the olive trees and vines this makes a perfect vacat I n retreat and we would thoroughly reccomend it.
