Our region holds a number of festivals ‘sagra’ during the year, mainly during the summer; celebrating religious anniversaries, customs, local food produce, crafts, wines and music. They offer huge amounts of evening entertainment with live music and usually fireworks to close the event. Each village opens its community doors offering their hospitality and locality to visitors. Be sure you enquire with us as to the nearest one to your holiday villa in Puglia to ensure you do not miss out on all the fun and festivities!
Exclusive for our Guests at Relax Puglia
Chef in Casa - Home-cooked food for travelers of the world; what better way to grasp the inner circle of local life than to have a local cook share with you their Puglia cuisine, as cooked in their homes. We are fortunate to have on board Lucrezia, who has been working with Relax Puglia for nearly ten years.
Lucrezia is warm and generous with a passion I can only envy for cooking; but looking after two growing boys has been her real inspiration; working magic with fresh and seasonal local ingredients. Enquire with us, we have set menus available to choose from or let us know what you’ve in mind.
Cooking Classes – If you are looking to entertain the family and also wish to experience real Pugliese country cooking then look no further. Hands-on cooking lessons where everyone gets to be involved making a full course meal, from anti-pasto to first and second courses and to complete it with a traditional sweet dish.
In-house Massages - Life is easier when you are relaxed so you may need to pamper yourself or someone else. Bring the Massage Therapist to your Puglia rental villa door and enjoy a delicious massage, a fusion of eastern and western techniques pointing you towards both relaxation and cure.
The best part about bringing the Massage Therapist to your door is, you don’t have to drive, you don’t have to deal with the outside world, you don't even have to get dressed although the Therapist would appreciate you wear a robe!
"Beautiful villa lost in the middle of a beautiful olive grove. Huge pool and perfectly maintained twice a week. The owners are adorable and care about the well-being of the tenants before and during the stay: precise mails, telephone to give advices, detailed guide of the villa and the area proposed on the spot. A contact person is present on site and does everything to facilitate the stay of guests. All the photos correspond to the reality and make it possible to be well aware of the environment and the interior of the house. The city of Ostuni is 15 minutes away and offers all the amenities, besides being a cute little town. The only negative point (or not, depending on what you are looking for) is that the sights are 45 minutes or so so be prepared to do a little car. We spent a week in the villa and we had a lot of fun. We recommend this rental."

"This villa was lovely, there were 2 folders explaining everything we needed to know about the villa and also the area which we found tremendously helpful. Check in and explanation was great and in English, what to do if we lost power etc. Having the manager on Whats App was good and she responded quickly to any concerns. It was very private, well maintained and serviced. The change of sheets and clean up half way through our stay was appreciated, as was the basket of local products and there was plenty of drinking water for us when we arrived. They recycle paper, plastic, glass and organic matter and have bins with enough bags that we did not have to go shopping and try to find biodegradable bags. The closest grocery store was Famila with a wine shop next door, if however you are trying to save on expenses I would totally recommend the new Euro Spa a few minutes past the Famila, all well signed and the weekly market in Carovigno (less busy than Ostuni) for fresh vegetables meat and cheeses. We did have a hiccup during our stay but it was rectified to our satisfaction. There was a booklet for recommendations for improvements I believe they take it seriously. One thing to remember is in Southern Italy is in the middle of the day nothing gets done quickly, relax and enjoy."

"It was a pleasure to be in this house. The house is very well-equiped and we found all we needed. We just had one little "problem": the air conditioning of the two bedroom made a lot of noise. When we put it on it startedt to "whistle".

"Lovely Villa in Puglia with amazing pool
★ ★ ★ ★ ☆
We absolutely loved our stay at Villa Tamburroni. From the moment we booked through to checkout everything was perfect. Dealing with Carly was easy and informative and Colleen who met us at the meeting point was great. The villa is lovely and traditional, spotlessly clean and ideal for a family getaway. The pool was amazing.
We were also touched by the generous welcome hamper on arrival. All the information you need is clearly set out.
We could not have asked for a more pleasant stay, Thank you Carly and John"
