There were 8 of us staying here beginning of June. The villa has two double bedrooms upstairs and two double bedrooms downstairs, three with on suite and one with bathroom right next to it. There is also a 5th shower room, newly refurbished, next to the larger kitchen area. We were all so pleasantly surprised, the villa turned out to be so much better than we expected! Actually, it was more or less perfect for our needs. The rooms were fine, bathrooms all of good standard, living areas large and the terrace areas also of great size, the swimming pool area absolutely beautiful and the gardens and orchard lovely and secure. There was even an outbuilding with 2 washing machines! The villa is in the countryside, surrounded by olive groves and there is not very much in the nearby village, however S. Vito dei Normanni is within short driving distance for super markets and a lot of the main attractions - Ostuni, Alberobello, Grotte di Castellana, Brindisi, the beaches to mention some, are all within easy driving distance - and Matera (a must see) is just over an hour's drive away. Word of caution - we followed our sat nav and it was useless, taking us along tiny dirt tracks, when it would have been much easier and more sensible to follow road signs. To top it all, we celebrated a big birthday during our stay, and Pino and his team provided a superb birthday meal (with a cake), and we also booked a 'Pizza night' with a chef,
also brilliant. We continued our holiday in a villa located in the heel of Italy, and although it was fine, Tenuta Placella was our favourite. A big thank you from all of us to Pino and his team for making our stay feel so special.
