We stayed at Villa Mimosa from 3-10 June 2012, and had a wonderful time - one of our best holidays ever. The villa is extremely comfortable and well equipped with everything you could wish for, from plentiful kitchen equipment to books, DVDs and an ipod dock - it feels like a real home from home. Everything was beautifully clean and well maintained, and the owners had provided us with detailed information about everything we needed to know. The gardener/caretaker Vincenzo came every day to check that all was well, and to maintain the pool and gardens. The pool is perfect - large and deep, with a diving board and lovely stone edges. The villa is in an extremely peaceful location, surrounded by olive trees - perfect for a quiet and relaxing holiday. The gardens are lush and beautifully maintained. We were able to sit by the pool and watch butterflies, swallows or bats, depending on the time of day. There is plenty of space to sit in the sunshine, or in the shade of the lovely covered terrace, whichever you prefer. This was our first visit to Puglia, and there was more to see within easy driving distance than we could manage in a week - the beaches we went to were clean and undeveloped, backed only by sand dunes (although there are plenty of beach clubs if you prefer sunloungers and beach bars), and the local towns are magical, with an endless choice of restaurants, cafes and ice-cream shops. I heartily recommend Villa Mimosa, and look forward to returning to Puglia in the future.
Thank you for your kind words and your recommendation, and we hope to be able to welcome you back at some point in the future.
Perfect Retreat in Puglian Countryside
As a family of 6, we spent a week in Villa Mimosa in June 2018. A week wasn't enough and we all wished we could have stayed longer! Everything was absolutely perfect - a very comfortable, spacious, fully equipped villa, sprawling outside area, and large pool. The villa is maintained and managed very well and Corinne was able to fulfil the couple of additional requirements we had without any fuss. We would absolutely recommend this property to those wishing to be in Puglia and feel that they are actually living there rather than just staying. As advertised, a car is a must as the property is located in a fairly remote area, yet within reach of the town easily by car. If we happen to return to the area in the future, we would definitely look to stay in this villa again.
Thank you for your lovely review, and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We look forward to hopefully welcoming you to the villa in the future.
Lovely villa set amongst olive trees with a show piece swimming pool
We've stayed in a number of villa's over the years and irrespective of destination we try to tick the same wish list. Private, not overlooked location. Spacious and air conditioned accommodation with on-suite bathroom and a well equipped kitchen. Beaches and attractive local towns within a short drive. Tranquil gardens are a bonus and most importantly a large pool with good outside areas for lounging and dining. Suffice to say we chose well and all our hopes were fulfilled. We had a wonder 10 night stay at Mimosa, Carovigno and in particular Ostuni are lovely places to visit and eat out, while the kids where rarely out of the fantastic pool. Communication with Corrina was great and their local friend Vincenzo was always on hand for any localised assistance and took great care of the pool and gardens early in the morning before we surfaced. We really liked our first experience of Puglia, the good value and delicious local food and wine, the countryside of endless ancient olive groves and the friendly locals make for a relaxing holiday choice.
Wonderful holiday in a beautiful villa
We spent 2 weeks at Villa Mimosa, end of June/beginning July (myself, husband and 2 teenage boys). We all loved it. It,s a truly beautiful house. it is very well maintained and in a beautiful country setting. To be honest when we first drove up the country lane I felt we would be absolutely miles from everywhere, but the town is less than 10 minutes away and it is 15 minutes to Santa Sabina which has several lovely little beaches, none of which are crowded and a lovely atmosphere at night. The boys, and us indeed, loved the 'street barbecue' food there. It is lovely to relax outside surrounded by local and visiting Italians enjoying a beer and fresh barbecued food.
The villa has such a peaceful setting and is a perfect location from which to explore the surrounding area. It is beautifully maintained, very clean and very well equipped. Vincenzo came regularly not clean the pool and look after the garden and was very helpful. The pool is lovely with a great poolside space and a covered terrace beside it.
A change of bed linen and towels at the end of week one was a treat. Vincenzo's sisters are lovely, friendly and efficient.
We visited some of the surrounding towns including Alborobello, Cisternino and Ostuni. we also visited Lecce and while it was stunning during the day it was even more so at night and well worth going there in the evening, it's balsa cooler for walking around!
We did visit other beaches but preferred not got to Santa Sabina. The water is clean and clear and there are several small beaches not choose from. There is a wonderful bakery there, great fresh home made snack food for the beach.
This is one of the nicest villas we have stayed in, you can feel that it is more than a rental property. We had a great 2 weeks that just flew by all too fast. We would love to go back as there is so much more we have to see. We would certainly recommend this villa, and the area. 5 stars⛱

Thank you for your lovely review Michelle and Martin. I am so glad that you and your boys enjoyed your stay in our holiday home, and we look forward to maybe welcoming you again in the future.
Great holiday villa
This property is a real home from home very well equipped in
every way.The pool was great and was a very welcome relief from the scorching temperatures.
If I was to be really picky the door to the first bedroom sticks a bit so makes it difficult to enter and exit without making a noise.Recycling is also a bit of a trial!! Carvigno itself has a lot more to offer than is first apparent my favourite restaurant was La Loggia but others enjoyed Mama Lenas and Cartina.,Evo in Alberobello was another good find.Could not have stayed much longer I would have been enormous!!!
Thank you for your review - we are glad you liked the villa. We will make sure that the door is 'lifted' when we return in September (did you mention it to Vincenzo while you were there?). The changing temperatures in Puglia can cause problems with the wood, but it is easy to fix.
An Oasis of Calm
My husband and I have just returned from a wonderful three weeks at Villa Mimosa in Puglia. The villa was just perfect with everything you could possibly need and the pool is just fab many hours spent swimming and relaxing. The covered patio area is ideal for eating lazy evening bbq's and playing games afterwards. It really is a very beautiful, peaceful and tranquil setting just what is needed to recharge the batteries after a busy year at work. Puglia surprised us with it's beautiful old towns and villages, all within easy driving distance. We ate at lots of restaurants both in Carovigno and Ostuni and the food and wine are both excellent. The best thing about the area is the lack of tourists it seemed to be mainly Italians, hardly any Brits !!! Many days were just spent at the villa, reading, relaxing, swimming, sunbathing and sleeping. All in all a perfect holiday. A big thank you to Corinne and Barry for letting us share their lovely home and for making it so easy to book and also all the help and advice given.
We are so glad you enjoyed yourselves Becca and Tim. It is always a pleasure for us when our guests feel at home.
Hopefully you will visit our home again sometime in the future.
