Great little get away from it all
By Rob A. on 13-Oct-2019
Location was great if you're looking to 'get away from it all' like we were, but close enough to all shopping essentials and some interesting locations if needed.
Louisa always discreet but on hand, more than generous and helpful when needed. Happy to recommend.
A great introduction to Puglia

Lovely stay at Bella Terra.
Louisa is not only a lovely warm person she’s interesting and intuitive.
Nothing is too much trouble...rare to find this
these days. Louisa is also generous with her plums and figs when plentiful.
When we arrived, early June, her garden was an abundance of fruits and flowers. Her Limoncello is the best we’ve tasted. Good location just a few minutes drive from historic Carovigno town and the beach and waterfront fish restaurants at Torre Santa Sabina. Also just 15 mins drive from Ostuni.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay.
A perfect choice for a first visit to Italy

The property was easy to find, situated in a quiet rural location, yet only five minutes from the sea (at Santa Sabina) or the local supermarket (at Carovigno). The accommodation was clean and provided all the facilities I needed, and the welcome pack of 'essentials' was much appreciated due to my late evening arrival. Sitting under the gazebo on the front patio for breakfast in the warm sunshine was idyllic, and coupled with walks along the seashore provided the 'chilling' time I was in need of after the stress earlier in the year.
Louisa was the perfect host, providing information and advice to help the novice, which I am sure will bring me back in the future.

We arrived to find the property as good as if not better than the photos on line. Louisa provided us with a lovely welcome pack and several gifts of homemade limoncello, passata and produce from her garden throughout our stay. She was very helpful and friendly but also allowed us our privacy. She also thought of every little touch to make the house comfortable. The garden is delightful with loads of places to relax and sit for sun or shade throughout the day, a lovely cool pool and beautiful views. Do bring mosispray as you will need it in the summer. We loved Caravigno especially in the evenings and found some lovely beaches to visit and great ice cream! The area in Trulli country is really worth exploring too. We will be back !
A lovely tranquil setting only a short drive from some great beaches, Carovigno and Ostuni.

‘Bella Terra’ is a wonderful place to unwind after a hard day sightseeing or lying on the beach. Set in a large garden with trees full of fruit to die for, it really is a mini oasis way from it all. The accomodaton includes a kitchen, dining and sitting area plus a bathroom and a double bedroom. Whilst the rooms are not particularly large, this is not a problem as long as the weather is OK because the garden is definitely the place to be. Our hostess, Louisa lives next door and was always on hand when required to offer help, advice and even a ‘spade for the beach’. Grazie Louisa, fino a la prossima volta!

Louisa is a fantastic and experienced host renting a beautiful Puglia-Style, agritourismo influenced stone-cottage. We had a wonderful and calm stay. From the private rooftop you can oversee the coastline, take a book and relax. The house is located so that you can easily reach it by car but feel great privacy as there are no direct neighbours or roads that make noise. Overall, we can only recommend this beautiful property for a relaxing and romantic stay in Puglia!
Great stay! Great Hostess!

I read in a review something like " a close friend that you haven't met yet". Well, that is really the description of Louisa! So friendly, caring and perceptive like as you have known her for years. To be honest we had thoughts about having the owner next door but that turned out to be an excellent solution. The small issues occured were solved right away thanks to the fact that Louisa was next door. She was always on hand but also very discreet which gave us, at the same time, the feeling of beeing by ourselves. The trullo is nice and I would say that it has everything that you need for. Although warm outside we had a nice sleeping temperature thanks to the air condition. We loved the pool which was clean and big enough. The big garden with the wonderful olive trees and all other fruit trees is so wonderful. You hear the cikadas, the wind and nothing else... a place for meditation.
Thanks again Louisa for the nice company going out for dinner in Carovigno and also for inviting us to your home with friends and family , Many languages spoken that night and so great:-)

A special place to relax and enjoy everything wonderful in Puglia!
By Annette W. on 04-May-2018
A beautiful Trullo in a splendid garden in the peaceful countryside. The house was spotless and everything we needed was provided. It was exactly as described in the advertising and Louisa our host was extremely friendly and helpful with anything we needed. The location is perfect for day trips to special places of interest like Lecce, Alberobello and many others. The house and garden are great to come home to after a day touring or at the beach. We also spent a couple of days just lounging around in the shade in the garden. It was a perfect holiday. We highly recommend Louisa’s house for a holiday in Puglia.
Fantastic, beautiful holiday in Italy
By Chris B. on 16-Aug-2017
Louisa is a very welcoming host for this beautiful unspoilt property, set in a quiet friendly area, with great local beaches, seafood, restaurants and the wonderful town of Carivigno. Let Louisa tell you the history and the best places to go, you will NOT be disappointed!
Best 50th Birthday present for my wife
By Mick T. on 05-Aug-2017
The owner, Louisa, can only be described as a close friend you haven't met yet!
Her trulli is fantastic: clean, quiet, well appointed,and far enough away from Carovigno to be secluded, but close enough to experience the wonderful Piazza, Castle and La Loggia restaurant, which was recommended by Louisa.
She is attentive to your needs, but affords you space to do your own thing. Approachable and very knowledgeable she is a perfect host.
The trulli is close to Carovigno train station where you can get to Lecce, Monopoli, Polignarno a Mare and Bari very easily.
Without any reservations my wife and I would recommend this as a perfect couples holiday for all tastes and would recommend a visit to Specchiola and the Lido Tiziana for a great beach day, then experience Santa Sabina or Carovigno Piazza in the evening, however, leave it past 8 o'clock and car parking is not easy to find.
We are already planning our return visit for next year, and as a note, you can now fly to Brindisi from Manchester
