Villa Mimosa

Lovingly restored and extended well equipped holiday home with air conditioning in secluded area on the outskirts of Carovigno, 20 mins Brindisi airport, just over 1 hour Bari airport, bars/shops/restaurants 5 mins drive, 10 minutes to beach; ideal for peaceful getaway.

The villa is perfectly located for a quiet holiday within easy reach of the town, which can be seen from the garden and the roof terrace. However, a car is essential.

2 covered terraces offer shade for eating and relaxing. The terrace at the front of the villa was used by the people working the land for eating their lunch, and the curved stone seating benches are still there. Small cushions are provided to make the seats more comfortable. The side terrace is newly built with stone archways, and overlooks the swimming pool - the ideal place to watch the sunsets. The large sitting room has views through two double French doors to the terrace and the pool area. The roof terrace offers the perfect vantage to enjoy a chilled drink and enjoy the sunset. A small wooden table and two chairs are available for use on the roof terrace.

There is a very large selection of DVDs, from old favourites to new, and paperbacks, plus travel and information books and maps of the area. Also available Nintendo Wii with refundable security deposit. Enquire on booking.

Your surroundings: Part of the villa is well over 100 years old, and was originally built for use during olive harvest. It has been extended to the owners design, incorporating stelle volte stone ceilings in two rooms to echo the ceilings in the existing building and stone archways to the terrace. The area on which the villa stands is a protected zone with unusual traditional houses, each standing on approximately 2 acres of land. The villa is the only property which is inhabited on a regular basis at present, although two neighbouring houses are undergoing renovation by their owners. The lane on which the villa stands finally ends at a small nursery growing vegetables for local shops. Traffic is practically non existant.

"What can I say a ‘haven of peace and tranquillity’! We have just returned from a most relaxing week in Villa Mimosa. The villa is set on secluded and private and just outside of Carovigno. A car is a necessity to gain access to the local supermarket (only a 5 min drive) and the nearest beach (a 15 min drive) and to explore as much of Puglia as you wish. The Villa is beautifully furnished (including air conditioning) with everything you could want for self catering. The pool is fantastic- of a perfect size for a swim or just for a dip! A Fabulous terrace for alfresco dinning and olive, fig, mimosa, oleander trees as far as the eye can see. The owners of Villa Mimosa could not have been more helpful. In contact at every stage, great directions from the airport, people to meet you at the villa to show you all you need to know for your break and welcome supplies to keep you going on your arrival. What more could you ask for! The villa is in the prefect location to explore locally, Ostuni (the white city), Alberobello (the town of trullis) and the local sea front Santa Sabina. Or further a field Lecce (the city in the south) and the beautiful coastal drive along the South coast of Puglia (including Otranto and Tricase). Our week in Villa Mimosa was spent exploring the region of Puglia and relaxing in the beautiful Villa. Villa Mimosa was even better than the pictures and the description suggested and I would recommend a stay in Villa Mimosa-Carovigno to anyone! You will not be disappointed! Thank you!"
