“Wonderful Puglian holiday at Casa di Sara”
Reviewed 23 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We truly enjoyed our 3-week holiday based at Casa di Sara, located in the hills outside Monopoli, Puglia. The villa is beautiful and comfortable, situated in a tranquil countryside devoted to agriculture and country living. The grounds are spacious and lovely to look upon, with flowering bushes and trees (olive, fruit, nut) everywhere you look. Walks down country roads offer images of trulli, ripening artichokes and luscious cherries hanging enticingly over stone fences. Did we try some -you bet!

The villa's owners clearly love their well-maintained property. Their own villa is nearby, but barely visible, and it was comforting to know that they were sometimes on the property, in case we needed advice or assistance.

Their kindness was matched by everyone we met in Puglia. People were unfailingly patient with our bungled attempts to communicate in mangled Italian! Once, when we were seeking directions, a tired construction worker, at the end of a hot day, gestured for us to follow him, and he drove to where we wanted to go -then cheerfully waved goodbye.

Also incredibly helpful were the folks at HelloApulia, a tourist booking and information business. Denise, and Claudio, in particular, set up a fishing trip and an agriturismo experience; the latter was particularly intriguing since we saw ricotta, mozzarella, and
burrata cheeses made the traditional way and then shared with eager tasters! Such events would have been very difficult to set up without the knowledge and graciousness of the HelloApulia staff.

The villa is really well located for short drives to tourist "musts" such as the Castellana grottoes, Alberofello ( trulli village), Polignana, and Roman ruins. Best of all, it's close to the incredibly beautiful Adriatic, which can be peeked at while walking the country roads near the villa, and unfolds while you drive from the hills into the seaside city of Monopoli. Everywhere you look, from grocery store parking lots, driving along the highway, strolling in the ports, is the Adriatic .

We wish we were still there!
