We believe that all holidays are unique, and with Villa Rentals Puglia you can be assured that yours will be with our bespoke concierge services.
From the every day to the once in a lifetime, our concierge services are arranged in advance, just for you. We do our best to make sure you're in the pool as soon as possible after landing.
We love a challenge and think the sky’s the limit…literally! So if you need a yacht or private plane, a wine or olive oil tasting, in-house chef, massage, yoga sessions, or even just a spot of extra cleaning, simply let us know during the booking process and we’ll do the rest.
Listed below you’ll find some of the basic services we can offer. This list isn't exhaustive, and if there’s anything you require that's not listed, please get in touch. We’ll always try to accommodate your requests.
What would a trip to Italy be without a tour of its ancient wine-producing countryside? Our wine tours include all transport, wine tastings and a tour of one or more vineyards. They can be arranged from a half day touring a single vineyard to a full day seeing multiple vineyards (hic!) Contact us to find out details of the various packages we offer.
For hundreds of years Puglia has been a major producer of some of the best olive oil in the world (in our opinion, anyway). So for a slightly less boozy affair than a vineyard, we can arrange tours of local olive plantations. Here you’ll find out how the olives are grown, how the olive oil is pressed and processed and a tasting of the delicious local oil to finish.
It’s your holiday, and what better way to help relax into it than by having a sumptuous massage at your own villa? With a couple of days’ notice, sessions can be booked from half an hour to two hours per person. The decision on whether to have a Full Body, Swedish or Indian Head Massage will almost be as hard as those knots currently residing in your shoulders.
Much of Puglia requires engine-powered travel to get to. However there’s nothing quite like cycling through the Pugliese countryside on a hazy afternoon. Hire a bike to pick up local meat and cheese from a picturesque Masseria or pop to one of the beautiful beaches along the Ionian sea.
For use of bicycles during your stay, just contact us in advance to give us further information on your requirements.
For those interested in a more structured tour of the countryside - or if you’re someone who has several full body lycra cycling outfits in your wardrobe - we can organise cycle tours lasting from one day to one week. Included in the tours are visits to sites of interest and tasty local restaurants.
We can also accommodate those who want to strike out on two wheels alone, or with a professional cycling guide and van support... Just let us know in advance and we’ll sort it all out for you.
Forget about cooking for the family, or being the designated driver for the evening. Our concierge services can provide a private chef to cook Puglia's local delicacies for you at your own villa. All you need worry about is which wine to open. Contact us in advance to arrange this.
For anyone harbouring a close affinity with Uber, we have some bad news. Unfortunately, taxis are few and far outside of large cities in Puglia. However with our concierge services we can arrange both airport pickup / drop off, and your evening transport to the restaurant.
We know from personal experience how difficult it can be transporting all of the things needed for babies and small children. So at no additional charge, inform us if you’re bringing a baby or small toddler and we’ll provide a simple baby pack.
The baby pack consists of: high chair, travel cot with bedding, changing mat and baby bath or bath seat. NB. this depends on availability and age of the child.
Who wants to go to a supermarket to stock up on food and wine when they’ve just arrived on holiday? Not you! So for a small additional charge we can make sure that great local produce is waiting for you when you arrive, including some delicious local Negroamaro.
Just let us know if you require this service, and we’ll provide you with a shopping list to fill out.
All of our houses have a mid-week quick clean, plus a full clean carried out on the weekend. If you don't want to have to pick up after the family or just fancy some additional cleaning, please let us know. Treat yourself to someone for a couple of hours every day to make beds and make your villa and stay sparkly!
Now it’s time to search for a villa!
All additional concierge services are charged at applicable rates and are subject to availability. We advise booking as early as possible.

We know these have been trying times for a lot of people around the world. We all still need time off to relax and unwind. At Villa Rentals Puglia we recognise this and will be…Read Full Post
