San Vito dei Normanni, Province of Brindisi, Puglia
Diddy's Country Abbasciu is the main apartment of the Villa (there is a small apartment on the first floor as well, which we rent out separately or which can be rented together with Abbasciu). Abbasciu has 4/5 bedrooms and we can also accommodate babies. Diddy's Country is set in 4 hectares of olive grove just 1km outside of San Vito dei Normanni. It is a paradise for families and kids of all ages especially. The brand new salt-water pool is ready and waiting for you and we have an extra paddling pool for toddlers. There is a big playground with trampoline (at your own risk), swings, slide, gymnastic bars, mud kitchen. We also have a variety of ride-ons for all ages, the best being the go-karts that kids (and adults) can use on our internal roads. We offer used bicycles for you to borrow, there is a cycle road just outside the pro... Read more

Interaction with guests
We are sometimes there for UK school holidays, but most of the time our housekeeper/manager Pamela will look after you. Please do not hesitate to contact Pamela or myself for anything.
We are happy to interact, but equally happy to leave you alone.
Please bear in mind that both apartments will be rented separately unless you book both together for total privacy.

This location & villa is amazing. So relaxing and inspiring. A very clean pool with salt water. Safe and fun for kids. Exceptionally family friendly environment with bikes, go-karts, playground, trampoline and dinosaur... Very well equipped kitchen, outdoor pizza oven and two spacious, clean, new bathrooms. Enough space within the house for 2 or 3 families... Daily seasonal vegetables&fruits and...

About the neighbourhood
San Vito dei Normanni, although not the prettiest of towns, is ideally located to explore all that Puglia has to offer. From there within 20 - 60 minutes you can reach the most beautiful world heritage towns and beaches (the nature reserve of Torre Guaceto). Ostuni is just 20 minutes away and a most beautiful town, but driving there you will see the first trullis after just a couple of kilometres from our property. Trulliland is about 30 minutes away just outside Ceglie Messapica. Some beaches are rocky and some beaches are sandy, ideal for young children. San Michele Salentino, just 10 minutes away has got some fantastic restaurants. There is too much to see, try and taste to mention it all here, come and explore.
Getting around
We would say you definitely need a car, especially as a family. We do have bicycles and you can borrow them for free, but Italian drivers are not sticking to the rules and the roads are quite dangerous for bicycle riders. Having said that, there is a cycle route just outside the property which is reasonably safe, the route takes you both ways and you can even cycle all the way to Torre Guaceto. We try to keep up with the bicycle service, but should you run into trouble, there is an excellent bicycle repair in San Vito by the post office.
With the car you can explore all of Puglia easily, north towards Bari/Castel del Monte, west towards Taranto, Grottaglie (ceramic town), Mattera, the ionian coast with it's amazing beaches.

How to get there
Airport: Brindisi: 25.0 km
Railway: Ostuni: 20.0 km
Ferry: Brindisi: 25.0 km
Diddy's Country is located 1km outside of San Vito dei Normanni on the San Vito - Ceglie (SP30 towards Ceglie), upon taking the SP30 towards Ceglie, take the second road to the left (inside the double bend after the intermittent lights indicated as cyclable road or Percorso Cicloturistico). On Contrada Conversano take the second gate on the left (the first gate is also ours). There is a keypad on the left-hand side, enter the code 12546E and follow the internal road to the left until your reach the parking. Park anywhere, but bear in mind that the other guests might have one or two cars too. Follow the little path on the left, pass the gas tank, until you reach the house. Abbasciu is on the other side on the ground floor.
