JOE & FRANKIE WELCOME YOU TO VILLA LEONARDO
Thank you for visiting our website!
We have lived in Italy for over 11 years, Joe is Italian, Frankie is Northern Irish, both of us are bi-lingual and have a high level of local knowledge.
We live on-site so we are on hand if needed to give advice, recommendations and deal immediately with any issues that might arise. We love meeting our guests and sharing our love of the area with them.
We searched high and low for the right property to fit the needs of our guests…….and we found it in Villa Leonardo! It’s a dream lifestyle and location that we want to share with you.
We want you to feel at home whilst on your holiday and we are happy to offer our guests fresh seasonal fruit & veg from our garden. We are delighted to be able to offer food that is fresh and local, just imagine tucking into our home grown melon and salads of fresh tomatoes and cucumbers grown on our land; add a bottle of the fantastic locally produced wine to the occasion with friends on a sunny lunchtime or a warm evening and you have a healthy and very enjoyable Italian meal.
Joe who was born in Italy but grew up in London, still remembers summers in Italy following his Grandad around his land in Puglia and sharing his lunch of bread and tomatoes picked straight from the vine. Having never forgotten that taste, he wants others to experience it too.
Joe and Frankie love getting out and about, meeting new people, finding new restaurants and experiences and sharing them with guests. If you have something particular in mind that you would like to experience whilst here with us, just ask and we shall try to make your dream a reality.
We love that the area offers something for everyone all year round. The national parks and the coastline provide choices all year round for hiking, biking, sight-seeing, snow sports, history, wildlife watching, local crafts, and picnics.
It is all here waiting for you and we look forward to meeting you soon!
