We are very pleased by the feedback from our guests:

Il borgo Fianco a Fianco mi ha affascinato in ogni suo aspetto. Le foto rendono abbastanza la bellezza della location ma vederla dal vivo e trascorrerci qualche giorno ti fa apprezzare molto di più la tranquillità e riservatezza del posto. Stanze tutte comodissime ed ampie e zone comuni molto accoglienti. Sarà sicuramente un mia meta per i prossimi viaggi e la consiglio vivamente a tutti!

review from Eugenio Calasso

This is a magical place located in a forest surrounded by olive trees. The pictures reflect accurately the house but misses on all the beauty that represents staying there! Ilona was a fantastic host ensuring that we had all the information on the best locations to eat, explore and relax! This has been one of the best locations! Highly recommended and we will definitely considering coming back! So much to see…

Ilona and Jurgen’s villa/complex was excellent for a group of 10 or more. They were particularly helpful around check in, when, after our flight was delayed, they waited until we arrived at 2am to hand over the keys, and also left some local food and wine to greet us with. Thanks for a great stay!

review from James Tilston


What a tranquil slice of heaven! This is our first time trying AirBnB and we are sold. Ilona and Jurgen were so proactive with communication, and their lovely home is spotless, with such tasteful, serene design. The kitchen was well equipped to cook multiple meals throughout our stay, and we even arrived to a welcome gift of wine, cheese, bread, and other fabulous treats! The area is quiet and secluded, but still only 20 minutes from key destinations like Ostuni or Polignano a Mare. We found this to be the perfect respite for the vendor team while working at a wedding at the nearby Masseria Montenapoleone, and I would not hesitate to bring family and friends back here for an intimate celebration in the future!

An INCREDIBLE place to stay in the heart of Puglia. Jurgen is a knowledgeable and delightful host. The guest rooms and amenities are well kept and beautifully designed offering many options for quests from small to large groups, but still with a historical architecture and ambiance. A great center of gravity for many beautiful outlying cities in the Puglia region as well as access to beautiful coastal areas. One of the best Italy vacations in a decade.

Review from Luis Pougliese

This villa beyond exceeded our expectations!! Pristine and authentic- the perfect Puglia experience.

We searched online for the perfect villa for at least a couple months before we chose to stay at Fianco a Fianco and we are sooooo happy we chose this place!! It was everything we dreamed of and more. They have created an atmosphere that is both truly authentic and luxurious at the same time. Every inch of the villa was clean and comfortable and there was the perfect combination of private space for each family and enough wonderful community space for us to all to be together and enjoy meals and fun times. They left us a wonderful array of food and drink to welcome us in and all the special little touches are what made this place so special. We were a group of 10 complete with 6 kids and they children LOVED the pool and the grounds. They played hard and didn’t even care about their iPads or screens. If you go to Puglia, stay here!! You will remember it for a lifetime.
