Villa Cappelli sits majestically on the ancient Via Appia in the town of Terlizzi, just north-west of Bari in the region of Puglia. No one is quite sure when the villa first sprung up but some historians believe the garden to have once been a 13th-century monastic garden. The “farm” buildings on the property probably date to the 14th and 15th centuries. While the newest additions were probably built in the 17th or 18th centuries, one peculiar location in the villa is believed to be pre-Christian.
The land, filled with fossils from 10 million years ago, is covered by ancient olive groves, vineyards, and fruit trees. The entire villa is completely enclosed by an 18 ft. wall and features a formal half-acre garden planted almost exclusively with citrus trees, roses and lavender.
We've had a range of guests enjoy the villa from all over the world, including members of the British royal family, Bob Tuschman of The Food Network, world famous photographer Paul Freeman, stage and TV director Scott Ellis, reality TV star Fredrik Ekland, the music group Elbow, and many, many families just like yours!
Villa Cappelli promises you an unforgettable, authentic stay in a truly undiscovered part of Italy. Relax and immerse yourself in Italian indulgence — the food, the people, the fun.
Place to visit
Villa Cappelli is central to many surrounding Puglia attractions, none more than an hour away, and most about a half-hour drive. There are the beautiful seaside towns of Polignano A Mare, Trani, and Giovinazzo. Matera, declared Italian host of European Capital of Culture for 2019, is so well preserved it’s where they filmed Passion of the Christ and the latest Ben Hur. Castel del Monte is featured on the back of the Euro Penny and is Unesco World Heritage Site. And don’t miss the spectacular Gargano and the historic Canne Della Batttaglia. There are also the hidden gems of Terlizzi, the town closest to the villa, and Gravina. You can read more about all of them and see pictures on our site.
