Description from owner


When we found the villa, it had been abandoned for 40 years. For years, we have painstakingly restored this historic villa to the beautiful home it is now.

At Villa Cappelli, you'll have an unforgettable, authentic stay in a truly undiscovered part of Italy. Relax and enjoy immersing yourself in Italian indulgence: the food, the people, the fun.

Villa Cappelli sits majestically on the ancient Via Appia near the town of Terlizzi, just northwest of Bari in the region of Puglia. We have a small apartment on the premises, so we are always available to ask any questions and provide any services.
