Casalabate, Puglia (Apulia) on the Adriatic coast in southern rural Italy, is a small Italian community where the Italians holiday! A car is essential to visit Lecce, Otranto, Ostuni and other wonderful historic places as well as our local communities. There are restaurants and pizzerias in Casalabate itself, supermarkets, butcher and fishmonger, fruit and veg store, deli/bakery and the Sunday market offers a wealth of local produce and products.
Villa Rosa is the ideal location for a seaside holiday, complemented with private 10m x 5m swimming pool, surrounded by a large patio with solid wood sun-loungers. Relax in the Puglia sunshine, soak up the local culture, explore the Salento, spend the day on a nearby beach. However you want to spend your holiday time, this Puglia villa is the place to do it.
Eating out in local restaurants is a wonderful experience or for a change authentic local Puglia cuisine can be ordered and collected from local businesses. Relax on the patio under the Puglia night skies and enjoy a delicious meal and local wine.
Take a wine tour to discover the fantastic variety of Pugliese wine. It's a fun day out and you can buy wine for your holiday and to take home.
The English owners have lived in Puglia for over fifteen years and are close at hand to offer help and advice when needed. They are able to help you to arrange activities and discover parts of Puglia and the Salento that you would not find on your own.

About Debbie and Bob Lane
We are an English couple who have travelled extensively often working abroad. Before moving to Puglia we lived in Berkshire in Southern England in a small town. We lived a hectic life revolving mainly around work ..... no wonder we opted out of the rat race and retired early when the opportunity presented itself!
Debbie and Bob Lane purchased this villa in 2005
Why Debbie and Bob Lane chose Casalabate
We had holidayed in Puglia in 1999 and returned in the Spring of 2005, renewing our love affair with Puglia, Having recently sold our business we made the major decision to sell up in the UK and retire early, looking for a complete change of lifestyle. We found it. From a frenetic working life to the warmth of the mezzo-giorno and the warmth and hospitality of the Southern Italians, Puglia provides us with the opportunity to take the time to enjoy our retirement. Villa Rosa was bought with the plan to make it a dedicated holiday rental in mind.
What makes this villa unique
There are many large villas with pools but not so many smaller two-bedroom villas that have private, heated pools. With two bedrooms, sleeping 6, Villa Rosa is ideal for smaller families or couples who want the privacy and peace of a self-catering villa, especially one with a pool, and do not want to holiday as part of a larger group. Located in Casalabate Villa Rosa is perfect for a relaxing seaside/pool holiday and also as a base to explore the Salento Region and Puglia. Our own home is five minutes drive from Villa Rosa and we are on hand to help with anything you may need. Together with our fantastic events organiser, Ylenia, we can arrange almost any sort of activity or day trip, making sure you discover and understand the real Puglia. We've even hosted a wedding at Casa Mare and had several honeymooners choose Villa Rosa and Casa Mare as the place to be. Regular returning guests are a testament to how our guests enjoy their holiday at either Villa Rosa or Casa Mare. Our long term aim is to eventually move into Villa Rosa, we love it so much, and it is the ideal size for a couple or small family!
