“Would keep this a secret if I could!”

I agree with a previous review that the photographs don't do this villa justice. It's beautiful, very spacious, very clean and really well presented. The location is just outside Diso and Spongano.

It is very quiet; secure and set in a large garden with olive trees and an enormous vegetable patch. The location is perfect for visiting the salento area with easy access to the very pretty towns at Castro and S. Casarea Terme as well as the beautiful beaches up at Otranto and down to the south and west.

As previous reviews say there are local supermarkets within a few km drive and a very large one on the main road between maglie and S. M. Di Leuca near Spongano. However Grazia, the owner was fantastic at providing some information to help us find our way around, as well as leaving us some essentials on our arrival and turning up the following morning with a large box of fresh pastries.

At one point in the stay we need a visit to a local doctors for one of the children and again Grazia and Pino were incredibly helpful, arranging the appointment and going with us to help translate and pick up the medication from the pharmacy.

The kitchen is well equipped and clean and the oven and hob appeared to be new and there is no shortage of utensils, crockery, glasses etc.

The outside seating areas are spacious, with two dining areas and us girls loved the day beds in the evening with a glass of wine or two! The air con is a massive bonus as well in the bedrooms and the showers great. The beds are very comfortable and all the linens were changed in the 2 weeks we were there.

The garden is well maintained and there are plenty of very comfortable sun beds.
I think the children would have liked the pool to be slightly deeper so they could dive in but it's large, very clean and that's the only slight downside they could come up with.

There is work still being done on the property ( although the work isn't being done while you are there) - improvements to the outside seating and cooking areas as well as 3 further bedrooms and when completed will make this villa stunning.

We are three families with children aged 10 and 11 and loved it so much we are going back next year.

“Wonderful garden with great pool and a high standard house”
Reviewed 12 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Wonderful garden, both sunny and shaded pergola, large outdoor eating area, pool in the center.
The house is nicely renovated to a high standard with many beautiful design details. 4 nice double room with bathroom, the fifth double room is accessed only through the fourth room and they share the bathroom. All kitchen appliances were new with gas stove and convection oven. Missed some kitchen items and the knives were blunt. In bad weather, the main hall was big enough for 10 people to dine.
The owner Grazia responded promptly to SMS and email on the same day and took care of the few things that needed fixing. The maid cleaned and changed the sheets after a week and the pool was cleaned regularly. There were 6 bikes but unfortunately only one that worked.
The village Diso is small but there were mini market, bakery and two cafes in the village center. We found only a small pizzeria in the village. In Spongano that was equally close, about 1.5 km, there were major grocery stores and some restuarants. About 6 miles away, there was a really big food hall.
Overall, we were 8 adults (3 couples and 2 singles), were very happy with our stay with the proviso of the fifth double room. Curiously, the adress is not possible to find in Google Maps! But that was no problem since Grazias mother came to guide us when we didn´t find the place.

We spent the second week of September in this amazing setting... It is great to experience a real sense of freedom stemming from having your own delightful space.
The villa is characterized by all the necessary comfort. Pictures definitely do not reflect the quality and refinement of the accommodation.
Lawn and swimming pool well maintained and everything fully functional.
Grazia give a great personal touch to the all package (we were welcomed with delicious sweet pasties which was totally unexpected!!!)
We would definitely recommend this place and come back soon!

“Amazing villa!”

We were thrilled that Villa Pardonise was larger and more beautiful than the photos showed and the owners were absolutely helpful in every possible way....they even found out that it was my birthday and presented me with a wonderful cake! They also recommended a chef who made us a most delicious meal, dining 'al fresco' at home!! All in all the garden, furniture, pool and facilities were thought about extremely well. It was total value for money and if we had needed any little extra,or information about anything, the owner promptly delivered it to us.. we definately would return if we are lucky enough to get another chance and thank both Grazie and her family for their generosity and everything..
