AMAZING... our experience with Pasquale & Marco at Villa Merlata was the best holiday we ever had and we can't wait to go back next year!
The villa is spectacular and it's beautiful backdrop makes you feel relaxed as soon as you open the gates. The attention to details in the house, from the beautiful bathrooms, the bedrooms and the kitchen is great. We loved the fact that we could stay outside and cook dinner at the same time and use the pool.
Perfectly located to Ostuni and all of Puglia's beautiful beaches... it really is the perfect villa!
I write very few reviews, but felt that it was my duty in this case! We had such an incredible time at Villa Merlata. Absolutely stunning and in huge grounds. The photos truly don't do it justice. The house was also brilliantly equipped.
It's about 5 minutes drive for Ostuni (you definitely need a car for this villa). I thought this might be an issue, but it was actually really nice to have a bit more privacy. Having said that, the wall around the periphery of the villa is very low, so people in passing cars tend to have a good snoop - so definitely no topless sunbathing! There were relatively few cars though, and they've recently planted shrubs just inside the wall, which should grow enough to ensure more privacy soon (hopefully!).
Giovanni (who is the go-to person during your stay) is absolutely fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble. He gave us loads of great recommendations, booked taxis to/from restaurants in the evening and even took us all the way to the beach at 8am on a Sunday morning to make sure we went to the best one!
All in all, an amazing villa in a fantastic location. We'll definitely return.
I stayed for 3 days at this beautiful luxurious villa near Ostuni with some friends. The interior design of the villa is very charming and cosy. On top of that, the terrasse and the swimming pool are stunning, also beautifully lighted at night.The villa is located in a nice and quiet environment, but still not too far away of the beaches and the beautiful city of Ostuni. I'd recommend this place to everyone, guaranteed you'll have a great stay!
