Villa Filomena

1 of 26
Villa -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
San Michele Salentino, Province of Brindisi, Puglia
Villa Filomena is a comfortable, newly-modernised villa built around the original traditional arched-stone hallway which may be hundreds of years old. We are close to town but decidedly in the country on a 2-acre plot of olives, almonds, figs and other fruit trees.

Renovations and decorating have been done with comfort and relaxation in mind. The villa has three bedrooms, two with king-size beds and the third can be made up as two single beds or one king-size bed. The house kitchen is fully equipped including dishwasher and washing machine and there is also an outside kitchen with a barbecue. A large patio surrounds the house with a covered terrace providing a shaded dining area for up to 12 people overlooking the pool.

The pool is 10m x 5m, with ample poolside furnishings and an outside hot and cold shower. Pool and beach towels...

Interaction with guests
When you book I will send you some preliminary tips and information about the house, area and what to think about when planning. Before you depart for Puglia I will send you another file with more detailed information, directions to reach the villa and some info about the region so that you can plan ahead. There will be information about your arrival, what you get in your welcome pack and facilities the villa has to offer. Our villa manager lives locally, speaks English and will be there to greet you when you arrive and on call at all times during your stay. Once in the villa, there is a large file with information, maps, attractions and events, tips on getting the best out of local life and, of course, food and wine.

Sadly we can't control the mosquitoes, these are a problem all around the Mediterranean area, we did provide citronella candles and advised on using anti insect sprays. The rotovation was a one-off event, usually this takes place in June, before our holiday lets season. We...More

I have just returned from a 2-week stay at Villa Filomena. The house is bigger than we thought from the photos. I went with my wife, my two children (7 & 5) and my wife's parents. All the bedrooms are a great size with air-conditioning...More

About the neighbourhood
We are surrounded by ancient olive groves; olives along with almonds, figs and wine are the main staples of the local economy, and local life is still very much lived to the rhythms and needs of the land and the trees.

We are a 1.5k (a mile) away from town, and within easy reach of many other larger towns.

San Michele is a small local town with all necessary amenities and many good restaurants, cafes and bars. We even have a Michelin starred restaurant. Local shops are mostly small family run concerns, there is a local market once a week and a couple of medium sized supermarkets. Many of the surrounding towns have excellent markets too.

How to get there
Airport: Brindisi: 41.0 km
Railway: Ostuni: 20.0 km
Ferry: Brindisi: 40.0 km
The nearest airport is Brindisi, about 30 mins drive. Bari is about 90 mins drive away. Ryanair flies to both from Manchester and Stansted, and Alitalia from Gatwick. Directions to the villa from both airports will be given on confirmation of booking. We are easily located on the edge of town.

You can hire a car from either airport and this is the most practical way of getting around while you are there. A Satnav is essential as much of Puglia is made up of unnamed roads and in town very convoluted one-way systems.

There is a bus stop at the bottom of our road where you can catch local buses but these are not really advisable for regular use and the scope is limited. If you want to go further afield for a day or more, the rail links from Ostuni and Brindisi are comprehensive and...
