Terlizzi, Province of Bari, Puglia
When we found the villa, it had been abandoned for 40 years. For years, we have painstakingly restored this historic villa to the beautiful home it is now.

At Villa Cappelli, you'll have an unforgettable, authentic stay in a truly undiscovered part of Italy. Relax and enjoy immersing yourself in Italian indulgence: the food, the people, the fun.

Villa Cappelli sits majestically on the ancient Via Appia near the town of Terlizzi, just northwest of Bari in the region of Puglia. We have a small apartment on the premises, so we are always available to ask any questions and provide any services.

I don't wish to over state how amazing this place is and risk the review sounding exaggerated or insincere however... Villa Cappelli is the perfect getaway vacation. I travelled with 15 of my in-laws (brave, I know), most of whom grew up with the Villa...More

Villa Cappelli serves as the ideal base for exploring Puglia. The hosts are warm, accommodating, and very knowledgeable about the history of the villa and surrounding area. The rooms are architecturally stunning. The grounds are beautiful. And the price was very reasonable.

About the neighbourhood
Villa Cappelli is centrally located to many amazing sites in the area. It's very easy to do quick day trips to some breath-taking spots and make it back to relax by the pool and have lunch or dinner at the villa.

Terlizzi is closest town, where you can head to enjoy some great restaurants and buy the freshest produce around, the tastiest meat you've ever had, and the best seafood in the world!

Then, there are so many other spots not far from the villa. From amazing seaside towns like Giovinazzo and Trani to breath-taking sites in Gravina and Matera. There's also Polignano a Mare, Alberobello, the Gargano, and Castel del Monte all close by!
Getting around
We are located in the beautiful Italian countryside, so you will need a car to get around.
Car recommended
How to get there
Airport: Bari: 26.0 km
Railway: Terlizzi: 3.2 km
This link takes you to specific directions via Google Maps driving from Rome: http://bit.ly/1Ms5Sef or this one from the Bari airport http://bit.ly/1Ms5Sef

Once you are in Terlizzi, follow any signs leading to MercatoneUno. It is a large department store near the villa. That will get you on Strada Provincaiale 108. Follow this road going to Mariotto. Eventually, you drive across four speed bumps in the road (you will hear a short chopping/rattling sound as you drive over them, not big 'mound' speed bumps), after the fourth speed bump/rattle, take an immediate 90 degree hard right. You will see a pine tree-lined street. That is Via Appia and Villa Cappelli is about 200 meters in on your left.
