Here, the tourism is still local; so, you will be able to experience an authentic Italian vacation while luxuriating in the comfort of your villa. The surroundings include the baroque Lecce, also known as the Florence of the South; Otranto, recognized by UNESCO as a “Culture of Peace Messenger Site”; the seaside Gallipoli, which in Greek means “beautiful city”; and many other gems for you to discover, including great food and delicious wine.

Apulia boast the longest coastline among all mainland Italian regions, lapped by the Adriatic and Ionian limpid sapphire seas. For the most part of the year, this region is soaked by the sun and cooled by a fresh breeze, making it the perfect summer destination for the beach lovers. In the last decade, however, Apulia has been stirring tourists interest for many other reasons. Conquered by many different ancient civilizations – Greeks, Romans, Turks, Franks, Normans, Swabians, Angevins and Bourbons – Apulia treasures an impressive collection of castles, great artistic and cultural heritage, and important archeological sites. Besides the magnificent beaches and the crystal clear waters, Apulia’s highlights include the unique village of Alberobello with its white-washed trulli lining the streets, the natural wonders of the famous Grottoes of Castellana and Fasano, the baroque city of Lecce, Ostuni, nicknamed la città bianca due to the picturesque white stone houses and churches, and – last but not least – the captivating food reflecting centuries of mixed cultural influences. The only con to visiting this region is…so much to experience, so little time!
