The location of Villa Le Mura is just wonderful, only a couple of kilometres from the stunning town of Ostuni and in typical Pugliese countryside. The walls that surround the villa ensure privacy and they add real character to the gardens and pool. The building maintains its original character with vaulted ceilings and the local stone being used where possible.
This four bedroom villa has been restored with care and attention. Three of the bedrooms are in the main house and there are lovely terraces where you can enjoy lovely evening meals. The main villa has the well-equipped kitchen and dining room, two double bedrooms one twin/double with two bathrooms.
The fourth bedroom is in a separate building which is the other side of the pool and has air conditioning. Here there is also a small kitchenette and bathroom (with a bath and separate shower). On top of all this, Villa Le Mura even has its own private grotto, a cave sitting room where one can escape the heat of the midday sun and chill out.
The terraces have been superbly planned and the outdoor areas are excellent. Dining tables and sun loungers enjoy views of the blue sea in the distance and the pool is the perfect place to lap up the sun and cool down in the lovely pool. An added bonus is the tennis court which even has floodlights so that you can get some practice in after the sun has gone down and the heat has subsided. There are also football goals so you can show off your skills.
Villa Le Mura is ideally located to explore this delightful area of Puglia. The white city of Ostuni is on your doorstep and the sandy beaches are just a short drive away. The towns of Cisternino, Martina Franca and Locorotonda are all within a 30-minute drive and the stunning Baroque jewel of Lecce makes for a great day trip. We are over the moon to add Villa Le Mura to our Puglia programme and are sure that Essential Italy clients will adore their holiday here.

Great holiday in a fab location. I will recommend and use Essential Italy again when we next go. Everything in the villa worked and it was very peaceful, lovely pool.

Understated and lovely. The tennis court was a real luxury - and helped make out minds up about where to book. We mostly played at night with the lights, as our days were busy and the cool of the evening was lovely. It got our first family holiday booking in 10 years! As described, and perfect for our chosen area and town.
