A striking, spacious 'Masseria' crafted in local stone and white lime, Villa Marcella is a place made for chilling out in the sun. The interiors are just as spectacular as the vast poolside terrace and with room for twelve, it’s the ideal venue for a Puglian get-together on a grand scale.

The villa is comprised of three apartments, two downstairs and one up, so the features you need come three times over. Both of the downstairs apartments have their private patio looking out over the pool or gardens, while the upstairs accommodation offers an exceptional sunlit roof terrace with to-die-for views of the Puglian countryside.

In addition, a new annexe has been added that comprises of other two ground floor apartments to offer guests even more space.

Olive trees provide shade in the two-hectare grounds, where a covered terrace with dining area will have you enjoying life al fresco in no time. There are armchairs and poolside loungers waiting for you and plenty of private spots to make the most of your time together. Candles and lanterns add an extra-special ambience in the evenings when the mood is relaxed and romantic in equal measure.

More treats are on offer at Villa Marcella, with a host of wellness services available to you. An area is dedicated to massage and face and body rituals, where you have on option to be taken care of in the most luxurious surroundings. Forget the time and just drift away…

If you don’t know Puglia, you can call upon the expert help of our concierge team, who can organise city tours, boat trips, cycling excursions and even cookery classes – an excellent introduction to the region’s irresistible cuisine. To make sure your dining is top-notch, great dinners from professional chefs can be arranged at the villa too.

Your location on the Puglian coast puts so much within reach. Pretty Polignano a Mare is your first port of call, delighting all the senses as you explore its picturesque squares and rugged cliffs. The sandy beaches of Monopoli are just a little further and the architectural riches of Martina Franca, Alberobello and Ostuni (the famous ‘White City’) are well worth discovering to the south.

The enchanting town of Polignano a Mare sits atop limestone cliffs looking out across the Adriatic. Those spectacular sea views and its sandy, Blue Flag beach make it a favourite destination, as does the pretty centre. The cliffs which surround the beach attract many cliff-divers and Polignano a Mare enjoys an international reputation as a prime destination for the sport.

The old town is a place to lose yourself, often literally, but you will soon find its jumble of little streets leading you back in the direction of the beach. Lots of appealing trattorias can be found around town and while Mediterranean cuisine dominates, other varieties appear on menus too. One local specialty you should try is the ice cream, which comes highly recommended.

Polignano a Mare is an excellent base for exploring the region in all directions. Midway between the cities of Bari and Brindisi, it’s also close to eye-catching Ostuni, Alberobello and Martina Franca and only 15 minutes’ drive from the attractive coastal town of Monopoli, where you will find even more history and chilled-out beach life.
