About this location
The Puglia region
Our little holiday paradise lies in the Salento region, the "heel" of the Italian boot and is only a few steps away from one of the most beautiful beaches of the region with crystal clear waters and white sands.
Puglia is far too beautiful to just spend all your time here enjoying the sun. Maruggio is a good starting point for half- or whole day excursions to the most stunning sights of Puglia. You will find travel guides with lots of tips in all our houses. We are also happy to provide you with some personal recommendations. Of course you don't have to visit everything on your first time here - once you've been in Puglia you will want to come back.
Among the Highlights:
Lecce surprises with exuberant Baroque
Taranto, Brindisi, Bari (sightseeing and shopping)
Alberobello and its world-famous Trulli houses (World cultural heritage site)
Ostuni (the picturesque "white city")
Oria (historic centre with dome and castle - and great restaurants)
Gallipoli (ancient Greek harbour and historic centre)
Castel del Monte (castle of the emperor Frederick II) (World cultural heritage site)
Otranto (historic centre and dome with one-of-a-kind mosaic floor)
Manduria (historic centre, old Jewish ghetto, excavations)
Grottaglie (ceramic workshops, Bishop's castle, historic centre)
Matera and its impressive "Sassi" (cave dwellings) (World cultural heritage site)
Trani with its cathedral built on a terrace overlooking the sea
Massafra with its breathtaking gorges (gravine)
The fairy-tale like limestone grottoes of Catellana-Grotte
The cliffs of the Salento and the "edge of the world" at Santa Maria di Leuca
Zoo-safari in Fasano (not only for kids)
The town where the German-Italian movie "Solino" was filmed was actually Nardò and is close by.
Campomarino di Maruggio
The little settlement "Monaco Mirante" is just 3 km away from the seaside resort and fishing village Campomarino; both belong to the Commune of Maruggio, about 4 km inland. There you find all the shops you might need and the charming "mercato" (weekly market) on Wednesday mornings.
The ice cream parlour and café "Panna e Cioccolata" in Campomarino is open all year round, and also the Restaurant/Pizzeria "Piccole Ore" only takes a short winter break. Although most other restaurants and bars in Campomarino are only open during the holiday periods, the wider surroundings offer a large selection of excellent restaurants year-round (for example in Manduria, Sava or Oria). By the way, Campomarino has grown a beautiful new pleasure harbour that complements the fishing port.
Monaco Mirante is surrounded by dunes, vine yards and olive groves. The "Dune di Campomarino" and the whole coastline are part of a nature reserve. The path from your holiday home through the dunes to the beach passes dense juniper bushes, bamboo plants and old agaves.
Spring in Monaco Mirante: a world of marvellous experiences, a rural retreat. No hotels in sight. Out of high season you are only likely to meet farmers who are tending to their fields where they grow mainly vines and olives, but also vegetables and scrumptious figs. On the weekends you might encounter the local families who come together on the beach and unpack their pasta and panini for lunch, but for most of the time the beach will be all yours.
In July and August the other houses in Monaco Mirante slowly fill with life and the true Italian holiday spirit spreads. You might catch a few gentle guitar notes on the evening breeze, and see the youth spending the evenings on the beach or at the ice cream parlour of Campomarino.
Rich red-brown fields begin inland from the coastal dunes; here grow mainly olive trees and vines. But the local farmers also cultivate many vegetables and fruits, which they sell in the mornings at the Piazza San Giovanni in Maruggio. Jump on one of our bikes and take a ride through the narrow and calm inland roads that are flanked by the traditional dry-stone walls still built with stones collected from the surrounding fields. Admire the mystical forms of ancient olive trees lining your way and treat yourself to an ice cream once you reach Campomarino.
The wonderful natural white sand beach is only a few minutes walk from all our houses. You can easily carry your sun umbrella, sun loungers or anything else you might require for your stay at the beach or your swim in the water. Of course, we provide our guests with beach mats, sun loungers, umbrellas and beach towels for free.
The beach is completely natural. You won't find orderly rows of sun chairs or a beach bar here! Nevertheless, there are bins along the beach that are emptied daily in high season. Additionally, you will find large refuse bins and recycling containers for plastic and glass along the beach road and inland streets towards Maruggio all year round.
