Escape to Puglia if you want to avoid the better known areas of Italy; whilst it is becoming increasingly popular the “heel of Italy’s boot” is still largely unspoilt and authentic. Salento, in the sun-drenched south, offers wild beaches and inexpensive food; Lecce is charming with its plethora of baroque buildings and Ostuni is a dazzling white city on the top of a hill, with beautiful views over the adjacent Adriatic sea. Puglia offers nature reserves, sweeping vistas of ancient farmland, beaches, baroque towns and white-washed trullo houses, all to be enjoyed with a fantastic holiday climate, from mild winters to long, hot, dry summers which warm the sea to glorious temperatures.
Puglia’s star attraction is its excellent food; known as the breadbasket of Italy most of Europe’s pasta comes from here and it makes more olive oil than the other Italian regions together. Find a villa in Puglia and experience the allure of unspoilt Italy for yourself.
