Rental Home
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.

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...More

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.
