About the property

Three bedrooms with bathroom, bath, garden with tall trees

In the shadow of the magnificent castle of Federico II (UNESCO Heritage), Chez-Antoinette is a villa with pool in a beautiful garden, surrounded by tall trees. Ideal for those seeking the quiet of the countryside and the outdoors.

Chez-Antoinette is a beautiful villa of about 150 square meters located at the foot of Castel del Monte, in the heart of the Alta Murgia National Park. The villa has a private pool pertinenziale set within a large garden with tall cast, including a pine forest.

Has three bedrooms, each of which has its own private bathroom, the villa can comfortably accommodate 6 guests.

The warm and relaxing atmosphere of the interior and the exterior of the villa make it the ideal place for small groups, families with children who want to spend a pleasant stay in touch with nature and with the history and traditions of a charming place.

Chez-Antoinette is positioned in the middle of the Alta Murgia National Park on the slopes of Castel del Monte. In the immediate vicinity of the villa there are numerous services: adventure park for families and kids, shuttle service to the Castel del Monte, traditional inns, hotel, church, horse riding, airport for ultra-light, trails for hiking and mountain biking and more.

The Alta Murgia National Park combines in its vast territory real gems to be discovered; since the beautiful old towns of Minervino Murge, Ruvo, through the beautiful Romanesque cathedral of Trani, the cathedral of Ruvo di Puglia, without forgetting the seaside resorts placed a short distance from the villa. What more than anything we suggest is to live the surrounding area in direct contact with it, by living in the open air in order to enjoy its landscapes, scenery, smells and flavors

Delightful! Fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife daughter and I stayed for four days in May at Chez Antoinette and we really enjoyed it. The property is very comfortable and well equipped with good spaces to hang out both indoors and (especially) outdoors. Valeria was extremely helpful and communicated clearly about all of the arrangements. When we texted with any questions her answers were pretty much immediate. She also provided really good information and recommendations about the property and the neighboring towns. As a result we knew where to go for beautiful walks in the surrounding countryside (it was nice just to be able to stroll up the road to Castel del Monte), and for great sights and restaurants in Andria, Trani and Bari. Andria is closest and Bari is obviously biggest but we really liked Trani a lot and wish we could have spent another evening there.

Anyway we had a great time, we loved Chez Antoinette and it made us want to come back and spend more time in Puglia. Thanks to Valeria for giving us such a great experience.

Great Malvern

Lovely house and pool, noisy dogs at night!

  • 4 of 5

The house is beautifully presented and is very well equipped with everything needed for a self catering holiday. We were given a welcome basket which was very thoughtful and there were various cooking ingredients in the cupboards. The house and garden are clean and well maintained. We had very relaxing days around the pool and evenings sitting on the veranda. There are a couple of ok restaurants within walking distance and plenty of good restaurants a car journey away. The nearest supermarket is a half hour drive.

We found it hard to sleep as there is no air conditioning but with the windows open it was noisy either because of the local dogs barking a lot through the night or a couple of the nights one of the local restaurants had loud music playing until the early hours of the morning.

Overall a great house, remote from shops, peaceful by day, noisy at night.

Amazing! Everything you need for a fun filled family holiday in the sun! 😁🌞🏊❤

  • 5 of 5

We have had an amazing week staying in the villa. The villa is equipped with everything you need. The pool has been amazing and the children have loved it. There is a castle to visit 15min walk away with a restaurant and gift shop on route. There is a main supermarket (coop) about 25min drive away. The area is beautiful and peaceful with plenty of wildlife. There are plenty of places to visit in the surrounding area, Trani especially beautiful, traditional Italy. Valeria is very helpful and is on hand to answer any questions you have. Thank you for sharing your villa with us. See you next year! Ciao xxx

Very nice house, great hosts

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly as described. All very well maintained and any issues we might have had were very quickly addressed. We stayed there October and the weather was mild. It was always 2-3C cooler at the house than down by the sea (30 min drive by car). It got chilly during the nights so it was great the house has central heating. We often did the 5 km return trip up to the castle - especially good for an evening walk with glorious sunset - and went for long walks in the fields behind the house with old trulli here and there and always a view to the magnificent castle. There were also bikes in the shed for longer tours. It is a very peaceful area and the view from the swimming pool area to the castle is great. The best about this property are its owners! Valeria was fanstatic in providing tips such as where to go, what to see, where to find a bakery, what food speciality to try, how to pay for parking or book a restaurant etc. etc. She was very quick to respond to our messages and it was really great to be on vacation and feel that no emergency would be a challenge since she would be there to help if it ever became necessary. We can highly recommend all the day trip and excursion suggestions provided by Valeria! We would definitely stay at the house again.

Airy, modern villa

  • 5 of 5

The property is light and spacious with all mod cons. We were grateful for the comprehensive welcome pack as there are no local grocery stores. A car is essential and we were out and about most days visiting historic towns with their castles and cathedrals so had no time to use the bicycles provided. The water in the pool was too cold for us at this time of year and the central heating was very welcome when the evenings became chilly. The only improvement we would suggest is the provision of more seating in the lounge area. One smallish settee is not adequate for four adults and we had to resort to patio chairs. We would certainly recommend the villa to anyone wanting a quiet stay in the countryside.
