Located a short drive outside of Martina Franca, in the Puglia region of Italy, Villa Battaglini offers the quality and design reflecting an authentic Italian get-away house. Set within its private, sumptuous grounds, this owner-occupied home is a secluded treasure tucked away in green tranquillity.

The finish throughout is impeccable, with every little hallmark of style thoughtfully considered. Lovingly restored, this original villa blends traditional style with subtle, contemporary verve and charisma!

Accommodating twelve guests over six bedrooms, with an option of a sofa bed for an additional guest or perhaps a child in the group, the bedrooms and living areas are simply brimming with charm.

Entering the estate guests will have to catch their breath as they swing into the long, elegant tree-lined drive and pull up to this characterful home. The outdoor spaces are luscious and stunning, meticulously designed with understated flair.

The beautifully cloistered veranda is offering privacy and shade, through to stunning outdoor courtyard eating area, little private nooks for morning coffee and breakfast through to private pool amid fragrant plants and fig trees, this is a little taste of authentic Italian charm.

Air-conditioned throughout, Wi-Fi is provided, while guests will have complimentary water, breakfast served to them and can take advantage of their private patios leading off the bedrooms.

The Deluxe room offers a king size bed - a tranquil and calm space offering something worthy of an interiors magazine. Quality is abundant, apparent in the wonderful lighting, crisp bed linen, fluffy towels and window-side armchairs looking over the wonderful green gardens. This room comes with an en-suite shower room.

The Superior Room likewise has a king size bed, its private patio and en-suite, as well as the option to add another bed if needed. Neutral oatmeal tones, subtle lighting, a lovely writing desk, comfortable sofa - these bedrooms are designed with the utmost ease of their guests in mind.

The Suite room offers both a sumptuous bedroom as well as its private living room, with a sofa bed. Providing the ultimate in privacy, it has a private entrance and roof terrace, with a stunning view of the Valley of Itria.

With its discreet and thoughtful layout, this villa is suitable for either a family or group of adults or a set of couples holidaying together, offering both sociable eating spaces as well as privacy and independence. Living spaces are sublime: this villa even comes with a beautifully restored wine cellar, making this place an ideal spot for a glass of local wine and some antipasti.

The living room, so tastefully finished, is a space to unwind: comfortable seating and wonderful views, guests will always find a selection of books and magazines on offer.

The breakfast room has a large communal dining space and the breakfasts themselves are full of fresh local delicacies: fresh pressed juices, fragrant figs and oranges, fresh local bread and salamis to name a few. This space was once a fully operational Palmento - where farmers used to produce their olive oil and wine. The thick, ancient walls of this superb building meaning that in the Summer months it remains cool and fresh, while in the winter it is warm and insulated.

The outdoor spaces are peerless, ideally set up for outdoor dining. The outside fireplace provides a stunning ambience in the evening - imagine sitting back with a glass of wine from the on-site wine cellar in hand. Here, guests are truly taken care of.

The private pool is especially beautiful when lit at night; fig trees and prickly pear trees make this such a fragrant and sumptuous spot.

The owner lives on site and offers guests every convenience including daily breakfast and light cleaning, while remaining a discreet presence. He has passionately restored this original farmhouse space and is a wealth of knowledge on Puglia and its surrounding region.

What you should know…

  • Whilst being ever so discreet and private, guests should be aware that this is a semi-catered villa with the owner living on site
  • This villa has plenty of privacy yet with the common breakfast areas and communal outdoor dinning spaces, it is ideal for those after a group experience
  • Italy is incredibly child friendly, guests of this villa however should be aware that toddlers will need to be monitored by the pool side area
  • The steps may make this a less suitable option for those with mobility impairments

Located just a short drive from Martina Franca, in the heart of Puglia, guests will enjoy the wonderful, vibrant Southern Italian way of life.

Martina Franca's pretty, historic centre offers a winding maze of alleyways and an intermix of architecture: whitewashed simplicity nestled alongside baroque extravagance.

Built on a hill in the verdant and lush Valle d'Itria, visitors will enjoy the surrounding countryside as an antidote to the narrow lanes of the ever so photogenic Martina Franca.

Steeped in history, the main entrance to the old town is through a grand historical gateway, Porto Santo Stefano. In the main piazza and park outside the town walls, locals will gather to natter.

The centre of Martina Franca is charming and worth roaming around observing local daily life; you can still see the pointed roof buildings which are a local tradition; eighteenth-century palaces, a little age-worn, jostle among humble dwellings - within the true spirit of Puglia.

Alberobello is worth making a day trip for, in the trull-dotted (original pointed roof homes) Valle d'Itria; pretty hilltop towns such as Locorotondo and Ostuni offer a taste of authentic white-washed local town life.

From soaking up the atmosphere in downtown Martina Franca to sampling the cured ham that is the pride of the town, to meandering through the Valle d'Itria to the pretty hilltop towns, visitors will have a genuine taste of real Puglian living.

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Babies & Toddlers Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Puglia, the “heel” of Italy, is a family friendly destination - whether it be hilltop or coastal towns, long sandy beaches with clear waters and the beautiful coastline, as well as the sumptuous rustic local cuisine, children will be welcome!

Southern Italians are very family-minded, highchairs and children’s cutlery will be provided in most restaurants, whilst the piazzas in the evening are full of youngsters roaming and playing together whilst their parents watch on from courtyard al fresco restaurants.

Amongst our pick of the beaches for families would be the four kilometre stretch of Torre Lapillo, an arc between two 16th century watchtowers; the shallow incline of the bay is ideal for smaller children.

On the southern most “stiletto” point of the heel Pescoluse is nestled - known as the Maldives of Italy. The wild pine tree backed Baia Dei Tuchi is another popular spot for children. Hiring parasols and sun loungers is simple, and the beachside cafes offer wonderful fresh, pressed juices and gelato.

For slightly older children, there is ample opportunity for water sports, boat trips and diving. A particularly attractive spot would be the Grotta della Poesia, for those seeking an adrenaline thrill by rock jumping into the turquoise sea pool from the natural bridge.

For days out, just a short trip away, families can take advantage of the zoo safari, Fasanolandia. Children will be thrilled to be so close to big cats roaming free, with giraffes bending down to peer into the car windows and monkeys jumping on the bonnet.

For scuba diving and snorkelling, there are multiple water sports centres, including Scuba Diving di Levanto Stefano and Orca Diving. Underwater exploration is so accessible in the calm, warm seas of southern Italy.

Alberobello is an enchanting day trip for children to discover the local culture, namely the curious cone shaped houses named trulli, particular to the region. Children will be fascinated by these fairytale like homes, like something out of Snow White, and the myriad of souvenir shops will also prove successful.When a little seclusion is required, back at the villa children’s needs can be provided for by the on site host, whilst the magical lawns, gardens and pool will provide hours of fun and exploration.
