The Proud Garden

Afternoon Tea
Villa -
4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Carovigno, Province of Brindisi, Puglia
The Proud Garden operates year round as a very private B&B. However this listing is to rent the entire property as a private villa on a self catering basis.

Located in the Southern Italian region of Puglia. This is the very heel of the Italian boot, a region famous for its food, wine and its traditions. But Puglia is a far cry from the more sterilised tourist hot spots of the north. There is wonderful architecture, pristine beaches, fantastic food, great wine and a very real flavour of Italian life.

Set within 5 acres of Olive Groves most of the land is as its always been, a working olive farm producing very high quality organic oil. In and around the house we have created a number of garden ‘rooms’ reflecting the Mediterranean climate of the region.

We are approximately 2.5kms from the nearest town (Carovigno) which has a wide ran...

Interaction with guests
We live in the area so will be on hand to meet you on arrival and familiarise you with the villa.

After this we understand that every guest is different so how much you need to see us really depends on you. We can leave you too it if you require complete privacy or we are to be on hand if you require help, recommendations for sightseeing, restaurants etc...

Usually somebody will visit the villa every couple of days to clean the pool, take care of the gardens and remove the rubbish (its your holiday so you obviously don't want to be doing this).

We can arrange for an evening meal to provided on an ad-hoc basis if required with a days notice in advance.

We don't charge an additional cleaning fee this is all included in the rental cost.

About the neighbourhood
Our local town of Carovigno is 2.5 miles away and is a very typical southern Italian town. Being a working town there is life year round. It has a sleepy historic centre, a castle, a full range of shops and enough bars and restaurants to suit all tastes, pizza to michelin star.

Ostuni is just a little further away but definitely the star of the region. The old town comprises a jumble of winding cobbled streets leading up to the Cathedral sitting on top of the hill. A fantastic place to wander around and get lost. Again there are a large number of bars and restaurants to suit all tastes.

There are a number of blue flag beaches in the immediate area, ranging from large sandy bays with restaurants & beach bars, to small private sandy coves.
Getting around
To get the most out of your stay in the area we strongly recommend hiring a car for your stay at The Proud Garden. Whilst we are only approximately 2.5 miles from the local town and just a little further to the beach, public transport here is limited and infrequent.

If you really don’t want to hire a car then we can help you with taking the train from either Brindisi or Bari airports or of course we can arrange a car to collect you.
