Relax Puglia Limited values its beneficial alliance with home owners, suppliers and personnel. Together, through our holiday rental management services, we inspire travelers, like us, from around the world, to the southernmost region of Italy, in Puglia, because it is magical, fascinating and unforgettable.
Relax Puglia Limited, headquarters in Cisternino, Puglia (Apulia), has been welcoming visitors to this magical and richly colourful region of Italy and providing Puglia vacation rentals since 2010; providing travellers with an authentic and memorable experience of the local life as well as offering a showcase of holiday villas to rent in Puglia.
Experience true tranquillity at one of Relax Puglia’s ‘Home for Holidays’ in the southernmost region of Italy. Puglia has attracted engaged couples and honeymooners for many centuries, due to its stunning landscapes, pristine coastline, sleepy hilltop towns and slow pace of life. The region has the sensation that time has stood still, and that’s all you could wish for during your holiday with close friends and family.
Relax Puglia provides a range of additional services to make your stay more relaxed, comfortable and enjoyable. On your arrival, we can arrange for a food basket to be waiting for you together with a selection of local wines. Why not spoil yourselves with your own, in-house local chef, or a luxurious massage in the comfort of your villa. We have a wide range of tours and activities to choose from and we can provide transfers and taxis to help you get around.
The Dolce Vita is from coast to coast; from the Adriatic to the Ionian, between Otranto and Gallipoli. If you wish to discover the key to local artisan excellence, include a stopover in one or more of the hamlets and villages that trip along the coastline, topple on the summits of hilltops or make a splash in to the small bays and lagoons.
A selection of articles that explore the region of Puglia: its wonderful countryside and coastline, its rich history, its fascinating culture, its delicious food and wine and, of course, its warm and welcoming people...
A boutique summer villa and traditional trullo rented as a pair during the height of summer to become as one 'Nel Mezzo del Cammin'. A tight knot between the past and the future.
Central to the two independent properties, amidst the wild natural landscape, is generated a magnificent panoramic pool, decked by contemporary pieces of sun umbrellas and furniture with far-reaching views of the boundless skies, and the conical buildings that dot the countryside.
At Nel Mezzo del Cammin' there's a bird’s eye view of the hilltop town of Cisternino, (4 kms) its whitewashed houses and narrow cobbled streets, crammed with a staggering selection of restaurants, bars and curious boutiques.
The complex is a short cycle or walk to the labyrinth of winding country lanes of the surrounding and all-embracing Valle d’Itria.
If tempted, a vehicle ride brings you the outlying boroughs towards the baroque town of Martina Franca, the white wine headquarters of Locorotondo, the often overlooked (but please don’t!) Ceglie Messapica and the great ‘White Town’ of Ostuni.
There is much to explore further afield, our Guide Michele, suggests visiting the spectacular sights of perhaps the octagonal shaped Castle ‘Castel del Monte’, built by King Frederick the II in the 1300s; Gravina in Puglia where the iconic 007 made his grand leap off the Roman bridge; Matera – a fascinating complex of cave dwellings; the port and riviera of fine restaurants in Trani; the sweeping views and charming old town of Otranto, and one of our favourite cities of all Italy, Lecce, need we say more…..
Villa Beatrice Interiors
Very tall, vaulted ceilings give a viewpoint from one room to another. An extraordinary passion for design, strong lines, natural materials with significant elegance.
A highly functional kitchen, stylish and well-organised, serves multiple purposes; apart from cooking, a station for smart working or simply for chatting over the central island. A bit of mood lighting overhead illuminates the central work top, that connects to the back yard through French double-glazed windows and the breakfast patio.
The lounge, that celebrates light and nature, is comfortable and contemporary, furnished with a green twist, creating an easy aesthetic ambient. A perfect place for curling up with a book after a long day outdoors exploring.
Two double bedrooms with their own private ensuite, a mirror of the other. Another duality exists, but not connected, the children's dorm. The twin room which ma accommodate two or three, it is spacious, with soft spirited colouring embellished with bold fabrics.
The interiors are deeply pleasing, sought after in every detail, designed for aesthetic appreciation and creative simplicity.
Trullo Paradiso Interiors
Kitchen corner built into the stone alcove, long bench seats softened by cushions, a well-travelled 17th century oak dining table from a French monk’s monastery complimented by period style comforts of home. The adjacent, original trullo houses the manor suite, a double bed with ensuite shower and facilities.
Next door and the independently accessed trulli, accommodate two bedrooms, the children’s room and off the corridor, another double. Each sharing a spacious shower room.
Nel Mezzo del Cammin' Exterior
Let's begin with Trullo Paradiso.....The canopy beneath the whitewashed stained beams, is a stage from which to view the olive grove and magnificent chestnut tree!only to follow a discreet stone path leading to the poolside and Villa Beatrice.
A beautiful deep sea green pool forces the eye to climb the panoramic terraces that dominate the all-encompassing Vallé d’Itria, viewed from all corners of Villa Beatrice.
Covered terraces encircle the villa, each with the purpose, a passion for food at distinct or non-distinct intervals of the day; breakfast, nibbles, brunch, lunch, aperitif or fine-dining beneath the stars.
Enjoy this paradise, in a sun-kissed and protected space.
