Fantastic and relaxing stay in Carovigno
My family and I enjoyed very much our stay in this lovely house in Carovigno. The house is fantastic, very clean and spacious, and surely we will be back next year as we loved it so much!
The house is located 10 minutes drive from the seaside, Ostuni is 30 minutes away and we love it.
Emma has been very helpful answering all ours emails. We would definitely recommend this holiday to anyone who is looking for a relaxing, romantic holiday in such a lovely town like Carovigno

Stayed in Carovigno over the Easter period this year, it's the first time I'd been to Puglia, so I didn't know what to expect. Was pleasntly surprised by the warm welcome the Pugliese give, the food was great, and Carovigno has lots of great restaurants. The house was central, in fact about 1 minute walk from the main square, it was really comfortable and clean, the kitchen was big, so we did some cooking rather than eating out every night, it was lovely to sit around the big table with friends sharing some of the great wine Puglia has to offer! I would definitely recommend this holiday rental, it was everything we needed, and really inexpensive too!!

Via Matteotti - a Hidden Gem!
I cannot recommend Via Matteotti enough; it is a real gem in the beautiful Carovigno in Southern Italy a short drive from Brindisi.
The house which really does feel like a home from home sleeps 7 (2 doubles, 1 single and 1 room with Bunk Beds) and is fitted out with all mod cons (central heating, open fire, TV, DVD player, CD player, cooker, washing machine and fridge) and there are a good selection of Dvds, CDs, books and board games in the house. There were just two of us so we had tons of room and all for €25 each a night! The house is centrally located in Carovigno not far from the main square. The kitchen is well fitted with crockery, cutlery etc and bed linen is provided. Be aware you will need to take your own towels.
The rooms are large, with high vaulted ceilings (apart from the single and bunk bed rooms which have low ceilings but are idea for children). There is no aircon but with really think walls the house remained fairly cool. To be honest the only thing that lets the house down is the bathroom which is a bit small and a bit dated – however saying that you don’t spend your holiday in the bathroom – well at least I don’t!
In the surrounding area are a choice of restaurants and bars; especially in the main square. A bit further away are more shops, including a supermarket, where you can stock up on essentials. We tended to have breakfast at the house and then make a picnic for the beach and then mainly ate out in the evening, but did stay in a couple of times with a DVD and a TV dinner!
At the end of the road from the house is Castello Dentice di Frasso – I think the grounds are worth visiting but I wouldn’t bother on going inside.
In my opinion you will need to hire a car to get around otherwise, you can get to the beaches by bus but the Italian bus system doesn’t seem to stick to the timetable! We also took our SatNav with Italy added on – I’d say that was a must – you could probably hire one with your car though! There are plenty of beaches to choose from but pick wisely, some are very rocky, but stunning, while others are lovely and sandy. Our favourite was Torre Guaceto which is part of a nature reserve and has a manned car park and a little train to get to the beach. Pantanagianni was another good one with a sandy beach which is good for sunbathing and you can hire sun loungers here and there is another manned covered car park. It does get a bit crowded though. When we were driving around there was signs everywhere pointing to the “mere” so I’m sure there are plenty we missed!
Another local must is Castellana Grotte -you simply must visit these caves if you can! My partner is claustrophobic but enjoyed the caves. There are 2 different tours, we did the longer tour which included the Grotta Bianca (White Cave) and lasted about 2 hours. Brindisi is also worth visiting with a beautiful harbour, if you have long enough in the area you can get ferries from here over to the Greek Islands. There are some stunning churches and two castles! Also make sure you don’t miss the stunning Ostuni – also known as The White City (La Citta' Bianca), you’ll know why as soon as you drive in a see the city sitting on the hill. We just wandered around the narrow whitewashed alleyways, visited the church and had lunch in the main square – I don’t think it could have been any better!
Alberobello is another local must, it’s famous for its unique conical houses (called trulli) and are a Unesco World Heritage site.
I'd love to keep Puglia a secret but that would be selfish! We’ve booked again to stay at Via Matteotti in September – another 12 days of heaven await!
A Brilliant first trip to Italy
I visited this beautiful Italian House on a week long stay.
Finding the house from the airport was an easy task , on arrival I was greated into a warm modern house.
The rooms were sapcious and decorated to a high standard. Having things like a television and fitted kitchen really made the stay more homely. There were dvd's and books already at the house.
Surrounding the area of the house there are various resturants and bars in the sqaure , a short distance walk there are more shops from a lovely bakery to clothes shops ) . Carovigno it's self is a smaller town but still a lovely location.
There are a few beaches around, only 20 minutes drive and some really beautiful sights further a field.
The whole trip was lovely and I will be returning - the local people made me feel welcome and the house was lovely.
