Villa Azzurra is a charming 2 bedroom, air-conditioned holiday home, that has been totally renovated and modernised during 2011. Completely restructured and furnished with with great care and attention to detail, it has transformed into a wonderful place to spend your holidays..
Situated in the seaside village of Torre san Gennaro, it is an ideal location to relax in the sunshine, chill out by the private pool, enjoy the beach or use as a base to explore the attraction of historic towns and culture of the Salento peninsular and Puglia.

Secluded from the quiet laneway by traditional solid walls in the attractive local sandstone, entrance is through timber gates into a tiled parking area adjacent to the walled in front garden.
Newly landscaped, the front garden is adorned with numerous palm trees and flowering shrubs in graveled beds, and boasts newly planted Lemon and Kumquat trees, and a mature, red-fruited sweet pear tree standing over a cascading herb feature offering a range of fresh flavourings for your cooking.
Stone planters screen the front from the timber-framed shady al fresco dining area, with comfortable seating, just perfect for lazy afternoon barbecues. Alternatively, at the end of a days sightseeing, what is more pleasurable, than a tranquil supper beside the shimmering pool waters, illuminated and sparkling with the reflection of the garden lighting on a balmy summer evening.
Villa Azzurra’s rear terrace boasts a shower room and toilet, and the poolside sunbathing area is furnished with solid wooden loungers and set with flowering shrubs and planters, providing the perfect temptation to laze around and soak up the sun, before slipping into the crystal clear pool waters to cool off when it gets to be too much.

A tiled staircase takes one up to the roof terrace and another perfect sun-bathing location, complete with its sea views and aspect across the village and surrounding countryside. Here also are the solar panels that utilize the suns power to provide additional domestic hot water.
As an alternative to the attraction of the pool, then just a few short minutes stroll takes you to fine sandy beaches, washed by the waves of the Adriatic seas’ warm shallow waters.

Inside, Villa Azzurra is totally renovated, with tasteful furniture and fittings of high quality, a brand new wooden, fully fitted kitchen is equipped with dish washer, integrated full height fridge freezer, 4 ring gas hob and electric oven, microwave … in fact a full range of electrical appliances, and all dining and cooking accessories that even the most discerning gourmet would need to make cooking and eating-in a pleasurable experience. A full size dining table and modern seating ensures comfortable family meals together.
The large bathroom is fully tiled and contains a multi-directional massage shower cubicle, toilet, bidet, wash basin and storage. All bathroom towels as well as hand, shower and pool towels per person are provided as a courtesy, and the Villa also offers an automatic washing machine, hairdryer, iron and ironing board.
Both bedrooms overlook the front garden and have adjustable window shutters and ceiling fans, they both contain ample wardrobe and clothes storage, with bedside lockers and drawer units.
Bedroom one is a master bedroom with king size bed, and has the added advantage of an intercom phone to the front gate.
Bedroom 2 has twin single beds, which if required, can be replaced with another king size bed in the event of two couples wishing to holiday together rather than a family holidaying with children.
The living area is large, bright and airy, with comfortable leather seating on a large solid sofa and matching armchair. A large ceiling fan provides an alternative cooling option to the air conditioning if preferred, and if the decision is to spend an evening at home, it boasts a large flatscreen wall mounted TV, with DVD player and satellite television reception supplying approx 200 channels in many languages (English, German, French, Dutch, Spanish, Russian and many more)
We provide a quantity of DVD’s in the Villa, but if cannot find something suitable to watch from the selection provided, then, from our library list of over 400 titles, pick your choice which we will drop out to you on request. We also supply books, jigsaws and games to keep you and/or your family entertained.
The living area also contains a cast iron wood stove, for cosy evenings at home during a winter break.
The property is fully double glazed and has integrated insect screens on each window and door for your added comfort inside
The Villa guide provided is full of information about the Villa itself, beaches, towns and attractions to visit throughout Puglia and the Salento.

Villa Azzurra is located south of Brindisi and just 20 minutes from the airport, on the edge of the seaside village of Torre san Gennaro. This is where Italians choose to holiday and its easy to see why.
Quiet and peaceful in the off season, it bursts into life in spring with the opening of its ice-cream parlours, cafes, trattoria, restaurants and pizzerias along the seafront Piazza and squares, all within a pleasant five minute walk, there are also shops, bakeries and supermarkets, and with stalls selling locally grown fresh vegetables and fruit throughout the season you are spoilt for choice.

The beaches are free and uncommercialised, but boast fresh water showers on the promenade and public conveniences nearby. A short stroll through the village takes one past the little fishing harbor where fresh fish are sold from the boats or in the small fishmongers shop.
The twin village of Campo di Mare abuts the harbor on the other side. More commercialized, it offers beach entertainment and protected swimming in artificial horseshoe bays. Its attractive streets offer a further wealth of restaurants and local eateries to choose from.
Villa Azzurra is an ideal choice of venue to holiday at any time of the year, whether you intend to relax by the swimming pool, or explore the region. Conveniently located just 20 minutes from Brindisi airport, and its’ port and marina, only 25 minutes drive from the historic town of Lecce (the Florence of the South) and also within easy distance of Alberobelloand the Trulli country, Otranto and Gallipoli. This peaceful villa provides a haven for a perfect holiday all the year round and to enjoy La Dolce Vita the way the Italians do,
On your arrival here at Villa Azzurra you will be personally welcomed by ourselves, the English/Irish owners. You will also find a generous Welcome Basket supplying the first few meals after your arrival in Villa Azzurra. As well as all the usual basics you will also find local products, wines, beer and locally grown fresh fruit/vegetables in season. Before you arrive, if you wish, we can shop for you and stock the kitchen.
We live just 5 kms from the Villa so we are always available, just a phone call away, – throughout your holiday to help in any way to make your stay at Villa Azzurra special and memorable.
We can make restaurant recommendations and reservations for you, and provide advice or directions to places you want to visit.
