We are a family of four and had a great, first visit to Puglia. The Villa Rosa was a good anchor for our many travels around the area. The owners, Debbie and Bob, could not have been more helpful – both before and during our stay. All descriptions online of the villa are accurate, and it’s very nice to have the beach towels, dvds, games, and very extensive guide books provided with the house. We cooked a lot with local produce and fish. The kitchen is well stocked. The welcome basket is wonderful, full of fresh food and fun treats. The villa is quiet at night for sleeping and very sunny in the day for the pool.
We loved the fun-filled Sun Beach in town, full of Italian families and walked the promenade very night eating gelato. Day trips to Lecce and Oria were beautiful with delicious lunches. Do the drive from Otranto to Leuca, spectacular. With very little Italian, we managed well everywhere. The people here are much friendlier than in some other more crowded areas of Northern Italy. Need a car. Thank you Debbie and Bob!theo w - July-2011
