I moved to Puglia in 2008 with my partner and children, one of whom was born in Italy. We bought the rental villa and then the family house we now live in 100m away. The experience of buying and renovating these two properties encouraged us to start a small property business helping people find, buy and renovate their dream home in the Mediterranean.

Bill purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Bill chose Cutrofiano
The villa is secluded and yet near to neighbouring towns; it is surrounded by olive groves and fruit trees; and it is right in the centre of the Salento region of Puglia, providing access to both the Adriatic and Ionian coastlines and their countless coves, bays and beaches.
What makes this Villa unique
This area of Puglia is as yet largely undiscovered by foreign tourists, providing one of the last corners of Italy that genuinely offers a taste of Italian rural life as it has been lived for generations. The people are warm and welcoming, and there are countless bars and restaurants offering exceptionable value for money and quality: eating out - and food more generally - are local obsessions. The cuisine, not to mention absurdly cheap wine, should not be missed!

Lovely villa in quiet country location and only 10 mins drive to nearest small town for supermarket, restaurants etc. The owners, Bill & Tracey, were great and could not be more helpful. They live a short distance away, they are on hand should any problems occur, but they are very unintrusive. Bill has produced a very useful 'bible' containing information regarding the villa, local shops and restaurants, and places to visit with maps and directions. This was invaluable. There is a small pool which is wonderful to cool off in on hot days and the covered terrace is perfect for eating outside or chilling on the sun loungers at the end of a hard day's sightseeing. Having spent a month in this beautiful hideaway we can thoroughly recommend Villa Della Mora to anyone looking to explore this delightful part of Puglia. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to return.
Will come back for sure!!!
Clean, spacious, comfortable, quiet, large modern kitchen and the most important element in my opinion, is the owner’s attention to detail.
Comfortable and well-equipped
The property is comfortable and well-equipped and the owners have added lots of nice touches to ensure a great stay whatever the weather. We really appreciated the selection of films on hard drive when the weather was poor, as well as the efficient heater (we stayed in mid-May 2019 when the weather was unusually wet and cool). It's within easy reach of the coast on either side of the peninsula and the owners have provided comprehensive information about things to do in the area, as well as places to eat. We particularly enjoyed Otranto and the drive south from there along the coast road. It was very sad to see so many run down or abandoned properties and diseased olive trees in the vicinity but that did not detract too much from our overall enjoyment of the holiday.
We have just returned from a lovely holiday in Italy. This house in Cutrofiano was by far our favorite property so far. Bill and Tracey have thought of everything to make your holiday memorable. Property was very clean, very well equipped, and there was a very generous welcome hamper waiting for us on arrival. The surrounding area is lovely and very peaceful. We loved it. The only thing I'd suggest Bill changes is the photos on the website, they really don't do the place justice. Thanks Bill.
Perfect, peaceful and in Puglia!
'Such a lovely villa, with a welcoming basket of local food to settle us in & so well equiped with everything you needed including a brilliant, helpful folder to find your way around the area & all it offered. Surrounded by a lovely garden, with own pool & acres of olive groves in the centre of the heel of Italy in Puglia with both coasts only a few kilometers away. Only stayed for one week but felt like home everytime we returned from a trip in the beautiful area. Can't thank Bill enough for his help & letting us have the chance to stay in his beautiful villa. It was a suprise present from our daughter & son & we couldn't have picked a more perfect place to stay!'
Perfectly Delightful Cottage in Puglia
We stayed four nights at this absolutely charming little farmhouse in Puglia. The cottage is set on its own and there is complete privacy. There is a lovely patio that looks out onto olive groves. It is so lovely to sit outside and enjoy the view. The cottage itself is wonderful. It is modern, tastefully decorated, and spotlessly clean (which is of upmost importance to me). The owners have thought of every convenience and it takes no time at all to feel at home in this charming villa. There is a town nearby (5 min drive?) Cutrofiano, which is convenient for groceries, etc; however, the owners graciously have fresh milk, pasta, and other bits to get you settled so you don't have the sense to arrive and then have to leave again to get supplies. The location, as far as I was concerned, was fabulous. And easy drive to either coast. The owners live nearby but we did not see them once, except upon arrival; however, they are available should we have needed anything. In all, I completely recommend this great little place and will definitely suggest it to my friends if/when they travel to this gorgeous region. Thank you Bill for providing such a wonderful place to stay in Puglia!!
Thank you very much for your gracious review - we're so pleased you enjoyed your stay here. You now seem a very long way away in LA, but we hope to be able to welcome you back one day!
