We spent a wonderful four weeks at Villa Augusta. The house is spotlessly clean, well-equipped, and comfortable to live in. The beautiful grounds seem like your own private park, with lawns, gardens, mature trees, terraces, verandas, and the beautiful pool, which is cleaned daily. Cooks will appreciate the fresh bay laurel, rosemary, and thyme that grows in abundance. The layout of the outdoor property, with its many seating areas, guarantees a choice of sun or shade. Although the villa is located in a safe area, there is an alarm system and a remote control gate protects the entrance to the driveway. The villa is a short drive to Lecce, a magnificent city, and is also a good base to explore many beautiful towns of Puglia. Antonio and his family are superb hosts: helpful, friendly, generous, and intelligent. They brought us delicious food and gave great travel advice. The high quality of the property is a point of personal pride to the family, and the positive vacation experience of their guests is a high priority for them. We will never forget their heartfelt welcome.
Antonio and his family were gracious hosts. From glasses of wine when we arrived to warm pastry when we were leaving, they went out of their way to be helpful. The house was clean and comfortable, the garden and grounds beautiful. One of the perks was riding bicycles through the nearby fields at sunset. The house was very close to the gorgeous town of Lecce, and we visited numerous towns in the region. It was also near some spectacular beaches. A truly wonderful experience.
Fantastic villa, full of all comforts and perfect for family with kids. We also had a cook for us, the food was amazing and the owner Antonio and his wife Marta always ready to help!!!!
Great house and garden. We would have loved a bigger kitchen and more appliances (no toaster, kettle, bowls...) but overall a very nice stay, very kind owners
