5/5 Excellent

An idyllic stay in Salento
My husband and I along with four best friends just completed our stay at Villa Aquaviva in Castro...aptly named the pearl of Salento. Six stars for sure! The villa, decorated meticulously in nautical style, is just steps from swimming in the clearest, calm water. Marinella and Carlo were the perfect hosts, providing detailed itinerary of best places to visit, restaurants, etc. They truly strive to make your visit perfect. Also, employees Pina and Cosimo are exceptional at providing meals if you like. We enjoyed a tour of the coastline in our hosts’ personal dingy...stunning vistas and crystal water. The area is very accessible to other important areas in Puglia that one may want to visit, but when we did, it was always a treat to return to such a lovely, restful place. We have travelled extensively in Italy, and this trip ranks as one of the top. Each of our friends echo these words and more. Most highly recommended as a beautiful villa to relax and enjoy a wonderful area before everyone else discovers it!

5/5 Excellent

The best place in Puglia!
Since we arrived, Marinella, her husband Carlo and the staff that work with them, helped us with everything and every detail was taken care of. Five stars service, and house. They also took us on their beautiful boat for a day trip along the coast, and everything worked better than expected! Highly recommended.
