We had a great stay. John and Susie were very helpful and friendly. The house and garden were great and perfect for our 16 month old to run around. Would definitely recommend it.
Immaculate villa with a premier host in a beautiful location!

We spent 5 wonderful days in Puglia coming home each afternoon to our luxurious villa .. everything we needed .. comfortable beds, great shower, gorgeous bed linen and towels... and a very generous welcome pack! Thank you, John for making us feel so welcome with advice re trips , restaurants and vineyards. We love cooking and the kitchen and outdoor facilities did not disappoint! The grounds and gardens are beautiful. We visited during spring but can imagine a young family having a wonderful summer in the pool and exploring the woods. The house is certainly spacious enough and the second bathroom a winner for groups of 4!
The villa location was wonderful for visits to the Trulli, the Salento Peninsula and Lecce as well the Adriatic coast. Don’t miss the wonderful Wednesday market in Martina Franca! A gorgeous first visit to this part of Italy.
This vacation rental was fantastic, more than we expected.

John and Susie were warm and gracious hosts providing information on the area, trullo history, and “must see” Italian sites of interest. The gardens and pool added to the tranquility after a busy day. The villa was nicely decorated, kitchen very functional, beds very comfortable. Feel we were lucky to find a perfect setting to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary with daughter and granddaughter. We would definitely stay there again in the future. Bob and Sandy

From the moment we arrived we felt at home in the Villa. We arrived late in the evening so the essential items of bread, milk and wine left by John and Susie were very welcome. The Villa was very well equipped and spotlessly clean and the pool was impressive. John and Susie are wonderful hosts, friendly and on hand, if required, even offering to assist with the arrangements for our daughter’s wedding. We highly recommend the Villa and would stay again if in the area.
Fantastic peaceful villa

We had a wonderful stay for one week in Casa Septembre, Jon and Suzi were great hosts and very helpful with baby equipment to help us with three month old. Really helpful with suggestions for where to go and we would definitely stay again.
Perfectly peaceful, private, great value for money

We had a wonderful holiday. The villa is extremely spacious, much larger than the photographs suggest. The huge pool is absolutely wonderful and our children’s diving skills developed rapidly as they gained confidence on the springboard! The villa is very comfortable and extremely well equipped. The wood and the orchards are just great and we enjoyed picking delicious figs for breakfast.
Martina Franca is a beautiful Baroque town with lots going on every evening. We enjoyed an aperitivo in the Gran Caffe before eating in some excellent restaurants.
John and Susie are the perfect hosts. They are so discreet that we rarely noticed that they lived nearby, yet they were always ready, when asked, to give us well informed help on beaches, restaurants and places to visit. Really ten days was not long enough so we will be back for more! Thanks again

Previous reviews have said it all, almost. Yes, the villa is perfect, pool fantastic, John and Susie excellent, Martina Franca delightful but not much mention of the beautiful beaches. We argue about our favourite.
Torre San Leonardo is a wonderful unspoilt sandy beach somewhat hidden away so the vast stretches of sand are never overcrowded. The swimming on the sandy base is great but there is bit of seaweed to wade through first. Further away, but well worth the drive, is the beautiful beach at Porto Cesareo with fine silver sand and crystal clear water so you can see the sea bed and little fishes darting about. Rather more commercialised so you can get a beer and a sandwich or wine and a three course meal. It would be good if the site included photos of these spectacular beaches.
Wonderful, well equiped and peaceful

John and Susie prepared the house beautifully and were on hand if we needed anything. Travelling with a 23 month old, they ensured we had all we needed; high chair, cot, even a little bowl and sippy cup.
The house was larger than we had expected with plenty of outdoor seating areas. The pool was not directly on the door step which for us was perfect, our daughter could play outside in the forest without the worry of her running into the pool.
We loved Puglia, the house is situated in easy driving distance of some beautiful towns, beaches and beach clubs, we enjoyed many a wonderful day out .
We returned to London rested and very, very happy with our choice of destination.
Everything you could wish for.and more!

Casa Settembre is sublime. The location perfect for exploring the surrounding area. The villa extremely well appointed and ideal for lazy days in the gardens or around the pool. John and Susie are perfect hosts. Very knowledgeable about the area. Attentive without being intrusive. Helpful when help was needed.
The Trullo house is a delight. Cool and comfortable in a warm environment but with the option of heating should that be required. Bedrooms are spacious and bathrooms convenient. The kitchen is well equipped and the open plan lounge and dining area well furnished.
The area is interesting with a variety of splendid and accessible towns, villages, nature reserves and beaches within easy reach.
Cafes and restaurants abound and local produce provides excellent cuisine. Local supermarkets are within easy reach and parking generally cheap and convenient.
In summary. If you like variety, exploring or simply lazy days, this delightful villa is for you. As well travelled people, we rate this villa and it’s owners one of the very best! Thank you John and Susie. We loved it!

John and Suzie have a beautiful villa which was perfect for our honeymoon. We spent four days in Florence before heading to Martina Franca for 10 days exploring and relaxing by the pool. The villa is very well equipped and furnished to a high standard. The pool and gardens are lovely and private,but we knew our hosts would be available if we needed them.
The welcome pack was much appreciated after our long journey.
The villa is ideally located for the local restaurants and exploring the area.
We would highly recommend this villa and hope to return again.
Thank you John and Suzie so glad we chose your wonderful villa.
