Diddy's Country Abbasciu is the main apartment of the Villa (there is a small apartment on the first floor as well, which can either be rented together with Abbasciu for an extra cost or will remain closed). Abbasciu has 4/5 bedrooms and we can also accommodate babies. Diddy's Country is set in 4 hectares of olive grove just 1km outside of San Vito dei Normanni. It is a paradise for families and kids of all ages. There is a beautiful salt-water infinity pool with paddling pool for toddlers and lots of sundeck space. There is a big playground with trampoline (at your own risk), swings, slide, gymnastic bars, mud kitchen. We also have a variety of ride-ons for all ages, the best being the go-karts that kids (and adults) can use on our internal roads. We offer bicycles (new and used) for you ...Diddy's Country Abbasciu is the main apartment of the Villa (there is a small apartment on the first floor as well, which can either be rented together with Abbasciu for an extra cost or will remain closed).

We offer bicycles (new and used) for you to borrow, there is a cycle road just outside the property (carful, the cars can go fast). Diddy's Country is ideally located for sightseeing and beach-hopping, many world famous towns are between 20-60 minutes drive away such as Ostuni, Alberobello, Lecce, Locorotondo to name just a few. The closest beaches are 15 minutes away by car. Diddy's Country is also a working Olive Farm and we produce our own Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Please also explore the many plants and pick the many seasonal fruits and vegetables. There is never a dull moment at Diddy's Country and you will have a hard time to drag the kids away.

In questo periodo di vacanze con covid, volevamo una casa vacanze con piscina. Abbiamo trovato per caso questo posto e mai immagginavamo di trovare ciò che abbiamo trovato. Questo posto è un sogno. C'è tutto ciò di cui si ha bisogno durante una vacanza. Non abbiamo mai sentito il bisogno di uscire, di visitare un paese vicino, di vedere il mare. I bambini non si sono mai annoiati, e gli adulti hanno trovato in questa casa tutto ciò di cui avevano bisogno e di ottima qualità. Mai immaginavamo che una casa vacanze fosse attrezzata in questo modo. Ci ritorneremo sucuramente ...anche perchè non non siamo riusciti a provare il forno a legna per le pizze. Ah ad accoglierci la signora Cristiana che ci ha accolti in modo eccellente e accompagnato con discrezione durante tutta la settimana. Attenta ed efficiente. Ci teneva più di noi che tutto fosse ottimo. Grazie... avete realizzato un sogno

We really enjoyed our stay here. The property was perfect for a young family - it had everything we needed for our 20 month old daughter - cot, highchair, toddler cutlery, playground etc. We enjoyed the pool and the tennis court and the quiet location of the villa. It is also very well-equipped for self-catering with every detail thought of and high end equipment to use for cooking. The hosts were very responsive, Alexandra sends through an amazing app before your stay with lots of information to make the best of the villa and recommendations for the local area. The house manager, Christiana, was very helpful and welcoming and always checked that we had everything we needed. The location is great - 15 minutes from the beach and 20 minutes from towns such as Ostuni and Martina Franca. Would definitely recommend!

Possibly the best house we’ve ever stayed in, and we’ve stayed in a few! As a group of 12 (three families) space for all to roam and hang out is key and this amazing house has it in abundance. The gorgeous pool, kiddies play area tucked away under the trees in the shade, the outdoor pizza oven and barbecue, numerous seating the quiet areas. Really it was perfect for us. We were lucky enough to meet the owners on arrival who showed us round the house, the wine cellar (stocked should we run out of our own wine - we did 😂), the many fruit trees and grounds, the kitchen better equipped than our own at home and gave us lots of tips on where to go and what to do. They couldn’t have been more lovely and they left us in the very capable hands of the house manager Cristiana and her helper Sandra who bent over backwards to help us whenever we needed during our stay. Can’t recommend highly enough. We will 100% be back. Thank you.

Nunzi da Roma Sono pugliese e vivo a Roma ma torno spesso in Puglia. Conosco molto bene Diddy’s Country perché ci sono stata varie volte negli anni passati per trascorrere le vacanze estive. Anno dopo anno questo posto l’ho visto trasformarsi e diventare un posto incantevole. A giugno 2017 vi sono ritornata. Diddy’s Country è oggi un paradiso. Gli ospiti soggiornano in una bellissima villa arredata lussuosamente e circondata da un giardino così ricco di fiori e di piante da sembrare un orto botanico. Di fronte alla villa una pineta regala ombra e profumo di resina. Ai lati della villa e a perdita d’occhio i maestosi ulivi secolari. È un posto bellissimo che assicura serenità e recupero di energie. Il clima temperato lo rende accogliente in ogni stagione. Lo consiglio a tutti, in particolare alle famiglie con bambini. Qui i piccoli fanno festa dalla mattina alla sera nel parco giochi e nella piscina e la notte dormono come angioletti. L’assistenza agli ospiti è professionale e cordiale al tempo stesso. Pulizia e arredamento delle camere incantano. Non vedo l’ora di tornarci.

Dopo anni di attesa, finalmente diamo priorità ad una delle nostre mete "papabili": la Puglia, per visitarla, godere del suo splendido mare e dell'accoglienza dei suoi abitanti. "Purtroppo" abbiamo finito per soddisfare solo l'ultimo dei nostri programmi: il posto è così accogliente, rilassante e piacevole, che praticamente non ci siamo mossi. In compenso la frequentazione stretta con i proprietari e con il personale ci ha dato conferma della fama di ospitalità di questo popolo! La casa è meravigliosa, arredata con gusto, funzionale in maniera straordinaria e con dotazioni che neppure a casa mia io personalmente possiedo.!

This location & villa is amazing. So relaxing and inspiring. A very clean pool with salt water. Safe and fun for kids. Exceptionally family friendly environment with bikes, go-karts, playground, trampoline and dinosaur... Very well equipped kitchen, outdoor pizza oven and two spacious, clean, new bathrooms. Enough space within the house for 2 or 3 families... Daily seasonal vegetables&fruits and olive oil directly from the garden and huge olive tree plantation around the house. We love this place and will come again!

Abbiamo pernottato per 3 settimane al Diddy's Country per la prima volta come "ospiti" invece che proprietari. L'esperienza è stata molto interessante e vorrei condividere con voi il motivo per cui amo questa villa e questa campagna! Qui ho molti ricordi di infanzia, ma in questi ultimi anni - prima mio padre e poi io e mia moglie - abbiamo dato una nuova veste a quella che era una storica casa di campagna. Pur mantenendo le tradizionali volte a stella in tufo e alberi di olivo ultra-secolari, Diddy's Country è oggi una villa mediterranea stupenda immersa in un giardino rigoglioso con prato, piante e fiori e circondata da 4 ettari di olivi secolari scolpiti dal tempo in vere e proprie opere d'arte. Da bambino giocavo a dare a ciascuno un nome diverso, suggerito dalla mia fantasia in base al la forma! Questo garantisce la massima tranquillità e privacy. La villa è completa di campo da tennis con luci notturne; piscina "infinity" in pietra bianca di Trani e mosaico in vetro color sabbia che da all'acqua - purificata con un sistema al sale - il colore naturale del mare. C'è poi un parco giochi privato per bambini di tutte le età nonchè gocart a pedali, bicliclette, trampolino elastico, Xbox, libri, giochi di società, ecc. ecc. Ogni pezzo di arredamento e accessorio è stato previsto per una permanenza comoda e confortevole, tutto della massima qualità per una vacanza di lusso sostenibile.

Un luogo incantevole, dalle mille risorse, per una vacanza comoda e con le risposte perfette ad ogni esigenza. E' un concentrato di comodita' e bellezze pronte da vivere. Si stacca totalmente la spina...tra il verde di un giardino variegato, una distesa di ulivi secolari, con mille angoli da scoprire per passare una vacanza indimenticabile!! E che dire dell'accoglienza? I proprietari ti calano immediatamente nel loro paradiso, con la massima delicatezza e professionalita'! E poi ho avuto una bellissima sorpresa...appena inserita in quel bellissimo contesto, una piscina favolosa! Che dire...so dove andare in vacanza anche l'anno prossimo!!!

About the neighborhood
San Vito dei Normanni, although not the prettiest of towns, is ideally located to explore all that Puglia has to offer. From there within 20 - 60 minutes you can reach the most beautiful world heritage towns and beaches (the nature reserve of Torre Guaceto). Ostuni is just 20 minutes away and a most beautiful town, but driving there you will see the first trullis after just a couple of kilometres from our property. Trulliland is about 30 minutes away just outside Ceglie Messapica. Some beaches are rocky and some beaches are sandy, ideal for young children. San Michele Salentino, just 10 minutes away has got some fantastic restaurants. There is too much to see, try and taste to mention it all here, come and explore.
Getting around
We would say you definitely need a car, especially as a family. We do have bicycles and you can borrow them for free, but Italian drivers are not sticking to the rules and the roads are quite dangerous for bicycle riders. Having said that, there is a cycle route just outside the property which is reasonably safe, the route takes you both ways and you can even cycle all the way to Torre Guaceto. We try to keep up with the bicycle service, but should you run into trouble, there is an excellent bicycle repair in San Vito by the post office. With the car you can explore all of Puglia easily, north towards Bari/Castel del Monte, west towards Taranto, Grottaglie (ceramic town), Mattera, the ionian coast with it's amazing beaches.
