Villa Cappelli promises you an unforgettable, authentic stay in a truly undiscovered part of Italy. Relax and immerse yourself in Italian indulgence — the food, the people, the fun.
The Villa sits majestically on the ancient Via Appia in the town of Terlizzi, just northwest of Bari in the region of Puglia.
No one is quite sure when the villa first sprung up but some historians believe the garden to have once been a 13th century monastic garden. The “farm” buildings on the property probably date to the 14th and 15th centuries. While the newest additions were probably built in the 17th or 18th centuries, one peculiar location in the villa is believed to be pre-Christian.
The land, filled with fossils from 10 million years ago, is covered by ancient olive groves, vineyards, and fruit trees. The entire villa is completely enclosed by an 18 ft. wall and features a formal half-acre garden planted almost exclusively with citrus trees, roses and lavender.
While steeped in history, the villa also features modern conveniences like free WiFi, a fully stocked kitchen, plus cooking and cleaning services.
Relax in comfort with plenty of room for all your friends and family. There are 10 bedrooms and 8 full baths for up to 20 guests (no more than 20 people unless previously agreed upon). You can enjoy lots of common rooms and spread out to enjoy the entire 22,000 sq ft (2000 sq m) structure. Everyone will find their favorite space, with reading rooms, an enormous full kitchen complete with a wood-burning brick oven, an extraordinary large terrace with magnificent views, and a loggia that overlooks the luxurious 40x20 ft pool (12x6 meters), and a huge monastic garden full of citrus trees and fresh herbs. You also find Villa Cappelli is conveniently located close to many major attractions.
You can rent the villa by the day, week or longer. It is also available for private functions, parties, banquets, conferences and feasts.
During your stay, you'll have use of a washer, fridge, dishwasher, oven, microwave and more. Maid service as well as shopping and cooking services are also available to make your stay extra enjoyable.
