The space

This is a magnificent restored '1790's country house, restored by the current owners over a two year period. The Villa has 4 very large double bedrooms each with their own private bathroom and modern walk-in wet room. The fully tiled shower areas have an overhead shower with LED lighting indicating water temperature, hand held shower wand and body massage shower jet heads. Low level LED lighting in all the bathrooms for your convenience at night. All windows have screens & window shutters for those all important lie-ins. There is a large newly remodeled open-plan modern kitchen-diner. A very cozy, comfortable lounge features a large fireplace surrounded by 2 sofas. There is a TV with english and Italian channels. All bedrooms have large double beds, air conditioning, high ceilings and original features. There is WIFI in and around the property. A stone pathway through the beautiful large mediterranean garden takes you to the covered eating area. Warmed by the bright mediterranean sun wrapped in the brilliant blue sky, breakfast is a lingering lazy start to the day. Plans can be made for perhaps firing up the pizza oven to experience the incredible flavors only from a real olive wood burning oven. Perhaps a Puglian wine tasting adventure that will introduce you to some of the best wines produced...or cheese making, we can arrange this and more.
It's time for a leisurely stroll along the bougainvillea and jasmine covered colonnade to relax and enjoy the southern Italian sun. The pristine, glass tile lined, salt water pool so very inviting. The three meter stone surround allows plenty of space for the 8 sun loungers or the shade of the umbrellas. A wander through the ancient olive grove offers a unique and tranquil experience. There are over 50 fruit trees guests are encouraged to pick off the tree and experience the full flavour. Plenty of room for parking, the land is completely fenced in.

Villa Magnolia is a wonderful place to stay - truly magical. The surroundings and setting are so beautiful that makes it a perfect peaceful retreat in Puglia. Lesley and Ron are very welcoming and are the ideal hosts - we even had a pizza night where they taught us how to make pizza in their very own pizza oven! I will be recommending this place to my friends. Well worth a stay! I hope to go back one day.

Lesley and Ron, Live in Italy and Naples FL. We own a magnificent XVIII century Italian Villa, which we run as small boutique hotel and/or self catering Villa. Situated in the beautiful region of Puglia (the heel of Italy). We love getting away from it all and coming to Naples …
