Puglia

Puglia tailor-made holidays

Introduction

At the boot of Italy, Puglia has the country's longest coastline where the Adriatic and Ionian Seas meet, but it is so much more. A countryside of legendary foodstuffs, where cuisine is all-important, the landscape is one of sun-bleached hills, silver olive groves, hilltop and coastal towns. Apulia as it's also known is also one of the Italy's richest in terms of archeological sites. Sail the beautiful Ionian Coast, explore the hidden villages of the Daunia Mountains, cross the enchanting fields of the Valle D'Itria, discover the Romanesque architecture of imperial Apulia, discover the stone architecture of the Murgia Barese and the extraordinary Baroque art in Salento.

Top places to stay in Puglia

Masseria Torre Coccaro, Fasano

Small & intimate hotel

A masseria or fortified farmhouse, this vast, walled estate dates back to the 16th century and today is converted into a five star country house.

Masseria Torre Maizza, Fasano

Historic hotel

This masseria or fortified country house dates back to the early 18th century. Once a watchtower, looking out for invading Saracens, it’s now a bijou resort although the charm of its original chapel and mulberry trees remain.

Borgo Egnazia, Puglia

There are many reasons to love Puglia: its balmy climate, smooth beaches and sculpted coves, its cathedral and ancient watchtowers, its beautiful olive groves and traditional whitewashed trulli.

CalaPonte, Polignano a Mare
