"Think Puglia has a range of rental properties, from seafront villas and luxury farmhouses to chic restored trulli and secluded rural retreats. While some of the villas are family friendly, others are achingly cool. OK! fell in love with Villa Blanca, a stunning white-washed party pad with a clifftop infinity pool and al fresco hot tub. It overlooks the charming harbour town of Santa Maria di Leuca, with easy access to Brindisi airport as well as the delights of Otranto.
Trullo Terra Dolce is more of a traditional farmhouse with rustic appeal, while Masseria Cisterna Rossa offers privacy with extensive grounds, a stunning pool and a roof garden perfect for sundowners. Masseria Lamacoppa, a 17th-century farmhouse, has authentic Italian appeal and a huge pool with a 12-person hot tub! It's also ideally located close to the white-washed hilltop town of Ostuni, with its maze of cobbled streets and charming restaurants, or Alberobello, Locorontondo and Cisternino for the region's glorious trulli homes that feature on many Puglia postcards.
For true rock-star living, rent Villa San Vincenzo for its luxurious interior and pool-side cinema screen. It's located close to the fashionable and historic town of Gallipoli and wonderfully blends traditional architecture with hi-tech gadgets."
