Private and modern Mediterranean summer villa, located in the best area to explore most famous Apulia's sites. A gorgeous pool, a panoramic sea-view and a charming rock garden, with a 200 year old mulberry tree, makes Villa Isabella a wonderful retreat from the stress of daily life. Cool and contemporary, it is packed with comforts: three en-suite double rooms, air conditioning, cleaning service, Wi-fi, TV, Security services, three outdoor eating areas - two at ground level and one at roof level - with barbeque and a ventilated sun deck where relax and watch stars. The villa can comfortably host a family or three couples due to its well-planned layout that preserves privacy and freedom for each double room. The villa embodies dynamic spaces for continuous enjoyment; choices are made between a luxury sunlight garden, a sheltered patio, or the quiet and cool interiors. During your day you can choose to enjoy the sunny and seductive pool, where you can easily bring out breakfast and lunch from the adjoining fully equipped kitchen; or you may decide to spend your day at the roof terrace, overlooking the surrounding countryside and the sparkling blue sea. Mediterranean herbs and cactus planted at the roof garden will immerse you in the energizing and rich atmosphere of summer. Interiors of Villa Isabella are designed and decorated with the aim of maximizing the light of Puglia and to provide you with comforts. Local Puglia's stones used for the outside areas and Tuscan handmade “cotto” tiles placed at the interiors, merge seamlessly with contemporary lines and rustic-chic elements, striking the perfect balance between modern comfort and ageless charm. The main entrance leads into a white, open concept living and dining area, with a sofa and a fully-equipped kitchen with a dining table. Two bedrooms lead off from the dining area have their own communication with the outdoor and swimming pool areas. All doors and windows have wrought iron grills and mesh screening to allow windows to be left open but keep insects out. Villa Isabella lies 100 meters from the coast and 5 minute drive, or 15 minute walk, from the charming fishing village of Torre a Mare. The location of villa Isabella and its high quality of spaces offers you chances not only to relax but also to plan one day trips to gorgeous UNESCO places, like Alberobello and Matera, or outstanding natural areas as the Torre Guaceto natural reserve and Polignano a Mare.

Maria purchased this Villa in 2015
Why Maria chose Bari
For its valuable effects on mind and body. Its garden rich of flowers and cacti has a regenerating effect on spirit. The private layout of the property joined with its pool, garden and different solutions to help you relaxing makes a striking combination on wellbeing. After resting at the villa I always enjoy a visit to Polignano a Mare or Ostuni delighting myself with the amazing food of local restaurants.
What makes this Villa unique
.Quality of spaces and comforts. Peace and tranquility enriched by energizing flowers and exotic plants. Few hours away from not to be missed Apulia's locations.

Villa Isabella was perfect for our stay of 4 adults and 2 children. The location is great. Not far to walk to Torre a Mare, or catch the local bus which runs regularly and takes less than 10 minutes. It was about 30 minutes on the bus into Bari. This was a relaxing holiday we decided to forego the car as we knew in August we would not be wanting to travel around and certainly our two grandsons would not be up for it. We didn't need it, Torre a Mare has some great restaurants, a supermarket which is well stocked and bakeries. It is very Italian, which is exactly what we wanted. There are also plenty of places to buy fresh fish along the road from the villa. There is also a restaurant about 5 minutes walk. The villa is well thought out and very comfortable with plenty of outside space. The pool was lovely.
Maria was there to meet us and very welcoming and helpful. Michelle was at the end of the phone when our driver could not find the location and their cousin Angelo was also on hand if we needed him (which luckily we didn't). We can highly recommend this villa and would have no hesitation in holidaying there again.
Super mooi huis op mooie locatie.
Dit is een super mooi huis. Helemaal compleet ingericht met in iedere ruimte airconditioning. Mooi terras voor het huis, waar zich ook de veilige parkeerplaatsen voor 2 auto's bevinden. Aan de achterkant een mooi terras bij een heerlijk zwembad. En super mooi dakterras met eettafel en loungeset met uitzicht op zee, waar het 's avonds heerlijk vertoeven is. Prijs kwaliteit verhouding is goed.
Het huis ligt op ongeveer 100 meter van de zee met een rotsstrand. In de nabije omgeving lekkere verse vis te koop en goede restaurants. Het is een goede uitvalsbasis voor bezoek aan Bari, Alberobello, Matera e.d.
De eigenaresse is zeer vriendelijk en hulpvaardig. Ze is telefonisch goed bereikbaar. Ze reageert heel snel op vragen en doet er alles aan om het haar gasten naar de zin te maken. Dit is een huis waar we graag nog een keer teruggaan!!
We had a great experience staying with Michele & Maria, the villa lived up to our expectations, its was very clean, well equipped and the location is very close to the sea and if you like seafood the local fishmongers are worth a visit. The pool was refreshing, the roof terrace was so pleasant that we could have stayed all day but there is limited shade so be careful. We had a couple of short power outages during our stay but never more than 10-15mins but other than that everything worked as expected. Torre a Mare is a short bike ride away, there were 3 adult bikes available and we enjoyed the restaurants, coffee shops and gelateria's. We were sorry to leave, especially leaving our new friend, the neighbours friendly dog on the adjacent plot who we named Rufus Hound. If you go, then be sure to give him a biscuit from us.
Amazing modern property for a fantastic relaxing holiday
We loved the villa which is modern with amazing outside areas to sit and relax. The pool is great and from the roof terrace you can see the sea which is 100yards away. You can walk down to the the seafront to purchase freshly caught fish each day or a short drive to a number of local supermarkets to top up on whatever else you may need. We loved the villa and highly recommend it.
My family had a fantastic week staying here. Michele and Maria were very helpful, with lots of local information and dining out suggestions. They even went out of their way to switch one of the double beds to 2 singles for us, which was such a nice thing to do.
The villa was perfect for our needs. It's very well equipped and is laid out very well with amazing outdoor seating spaces. We made good use of the herb garden too.
The pool was a nice size with easy access and was well maintained. With the fabulous weather we had, we were lucky to be able to use it every day.
The only small issue we had was because we had a really large estate car and so parking and manoeuvring was a bit of a squeeze but it was not too big a deal and our other smaller car had no issues at all.
Thank you Michele and Maria for a wonderful week in your villa. We really enjoyed every day we had in this lovely, well thought out villa!
Perfect villa with all facilities

There are three terraces, one in front of the house where one can sit under a balcony when it rains, one in the back near the pool and one on the roof, very large and very comfortable.
