About Philip Marvin
We fell in love with Villa Sant' Annina in 2011, and finally took ownership in 2013. Every year we love to add something new, whether it's outside furniture or inside furnishings
Philip Marvin purchased this Apartment in 2013

The nearest beach is a beautiful 15 minute drive. This is the best family beach in the area, with water sports, fabulous beach restaurant, bar, sunbeds etc. The Puglian coastline offers some 500 miles of white sandy beaches. Whilst the local beach is our family favourite, there are beaches for every taste from tiny rugged coves to beautiful white sandy nature reserves.
Ryanair, Easyjet, Alitalia and British Airways fly to Bari or Brindisi airports. Brindisi is our favourite (Ryanair or Alitalia from Stansted or Heathrow) and is about 55 minutes away by car. There is also a port at Brindisi offering ferries to Greece. Bari airport is about 65 minutes away.
Villa Sant'Annina is wonderfully positioned to explore the whole region. It is a 5 mins drive to the beautiful old city of Cisternino with its lovely old cobbled streets, fantastic restaurants and bars and huge market. It is also a short drive to Ostuni, Martina Franca, Locorotondo and Alberobello (world heritage site/trulliland). The ancient site of Egnazia to the north is an easy drive and a must see stopping off at the port of Savelletri - great for buying fresh fish.
Activities locally available include: Fasanoland - a fantastic safari/theme park for kids, sea/ocean, watersports, tennis, Castellano caves (amazing), many wonderful towns to explore. We provide a detailed information pack for guests covering all aspects of the region. There is a huge 24 hour Conforama supermarket only 20 minutes away.
The swimming pool is normally open mid May til end September, but exact dates depend on weather.
