The Puglia/Molise region
Puglia is the heel of Italy's boot, with lovely hot summers and many beautiful beaches to explore, as well innumerable towns and cities such as Lecce, full of stunning architecture, Ostuni, a beautiful white city on a hill, Francavilla Fontana with its lovely castle, pretty Carovigno, the list is endless. The zoo safari at Fasano is about 45 mins away. Torre Guaceto on the Adriatic , a nature reserve with white sandy beach and clear blue sea. The beaches of the Tyrrhenian sea are not far away with Gallipoli being about 1 hr drive, Taranto also about 1hr. The fascinating town of Matera with its cave dwellings is a must. There are several water parks in the area. And of course, Italian food and wine at every turn! The atmosphere is relaxed, relaxing and friendly.
San Vito dei Normanni has a market every Monday morning where you can buy fresh local produce. In fact there is a market in a different town every day of the week! San Vito is very well placed for visiting so many other nearby towns, cities and beaches. In the summer there are often festivals in the town centres providing music, fun, street vendors, fireworks etc. Santa Sabina with its lively evening entertainment is a must. Ostuni has a very old historic centre with many winding pathways. Restaurants and coffee shops abound

"Well equipped, beautifully maintained and welcoming villa - fantastic."
Staying at Villa Oleandre quite by accident, we had the most lovely time. The villa is a gem both in terms of facilities, spacious rooms and comfort, large grounds to amble around in if you wished to get away for a while, plus the secluded decent sized pool which was made much use of by the whole family. Bikes were provided for the more energetic, the barbecue was a joy to work with and neighbour Antonio was most welcoming generously supplying home grown fruit and tomatoes on a regular basis, completely unprompted, I might add. The peace and quiet of the neighbourhood was delightful yet the nearby town of San Vito is less than 5 minutes by car, Owners Gerry and Angela were most helpful and welcoming and couldn't do enough to make sure our stay was a pleasant and relaxing experience in the most unobtrusive way. It was most appreciated. I would certainly recommend Villa Oleandre to anyone looking for any type of family holiday, be it relaxing by the pool or getting out and around the area. Access to motorways for Brindisi/Lecce or Bari are quick and easy. We would definitely return given the opportunity. Loved it.
