About Jacquelyn Ashley
I am retired military and am from Colorado. I met my husband while working here in San Vito. He is a Chef and we decided to stay here in San Vito to start a family.
Jacquelyn Ashley purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Jacquelyn Ashley chose San Vito dei Normanni
Location, Location, Location..... its close enough to walk to town but it feels secluded and private because its on a dead end road with no thru traffic. You can reach the beaches and highway access in 7 km and town is 1.5km to the main road.
What makes this Villa unique
We live in town and are available 24/7 in case of emergency or for restaurants reservations. Happy to help. My husband and I reconstructed our home over 4 years. It has been a labor of love and we are happy to invite you to be our guests.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
In August in Puglia, its all about the outside
This property has a really great outdoors. The pool is the prime focus - bigger than usual and surrounded in a variety of lovely seating areas. Good BBQ area. Bedrooms were good with efficient Air Con. Kitchen was adequately equipped for simple meals. The owner was very welcoming and friendly. She was also so helpful with top tips on local shops (notably wine!) and places to visit. The nearby town of San Vito had all the amenities you need (good supermarket), but was not drop-dead gorgeous.
We had a really great time. I would recommend this rental.
P.S. I would say car hire is essential - the walk into town was beyond me! Parking there was easy.
Fabulous property and fabulous location.The house was true Italian style-very quirky .
The properties owner was extremely helpful and really helped make the whole rental process seamless.places to visit for day trips were recommended and places to eat and drink.I would definitely return .
We had a lovely week staying at Jackie, Vincenza and Grace's villa. They were very attentive hosts and dealt with accommodation problems quickly. The pool is a delight although unfortunately, the weather wasn't. However, if you want to experience the real Italy as it was before tourists invaded this is the place to go. Eating out is cheap and the visit to the wine shop with Jackie set us up for the week. One piece of advice take lots of mosquito repellent as we were covered in bites. Lovely rustic Italy would definitely recommend.
A beautiful Country House Villa
A wonderful holiday in this beautiful country house villa. The villa was very comfortable and spacious for our party of 6. The pool and outdoor area is beautiful - great for swimming and a few yoga sessions!
The owners are very friendly and helpful and gave us great recommendations for places to visit and eat. They also helped arrange additional car hire for us whilst we were there - even picking us up and taking us to collect the car!
Car hire is essential - it's easy to drive the short distance to the outskirts of San Vito and walk in to the town centre. There is easy access to supermarkets and a great bakery for bread, pizza, croissants and pastries!
Our favorite place to eat and wander was Ostuni- a whitewashed hilltop town - it has a real 'buzz' in the evenings.
A wonderful relaxing holiday -thank you Jackie, Vincenzo and Grace.
We had such a lovely stay. The pool and surrounding area is so relaxing and beautifully laid out. Jackie is a fantastic host - always available if needed but discreet and sensitive to your privacy. We spent most of the time swimming, sunbathing and generally relaxing but visited Ostuni and Gallipoli which are both well worth a visit.
Thank you Jackie for a wonderful holiday!
Magnificent Villa and Pool, Lovely vacation
The photos do not do this villa justice, they can't capture the incredible ambiance we felt. The villa is absolutely enchanting, you feel all the personal touches as the owner restored the villa himself. The pool was huge, larger then most hotels we've stayed in. The banana trees and surround the pool and we felt as if we were on a tropical island. It was quiet and peaceful, we even saw shooting stars. It was nice being able to walk into town at night and we perfectly safe as there were streetlights all the was to the gate of the villa. San Vito offered a lively nightlife and great local cuisine. We were shocked at how inexpensive it was. It was a great location to travel around pugilia, the had easy access to the highway and it was very easy to find the villa. We never got lost!! For a family of 6, we all have space to spread out and relax. The villa had all the modern comforts and we felt truly at home. It was our most memorable family vacation. The owners made everything so easy for us and we're very helpful.
Thanks for a lovely vacation
