About this location

The Puglia region

Puglia is a varied region from the mountains, forests and rocky coasts of the Gargano, the hilly plateau that is the Murge where Villa Santoro is to be found, the flat coastal plains of the Adriatic and Ionian coasts down to the vast vineyards and emptiness of the Salento, edged by fabulous coastal scenery. Sandy and rocky beaches are within 25 minutes drive or further if feeling adventurous

The towns of Cisternino, Martina Franca, Ostuni and Ceglie Messapica show the tumultuus history that has formed present day Puglia with it's Norman, Baroque, Greek and Saracen architecture for all to see in their nspoiled centri storici. Here are found wonderful restaurants and food markets showing the breadth and quality of Puglia produce. The wines of Puglia are worth the visit alone!

There are many places to visit for fascinating days out, including Lecce the Florence of the south, Matera, Alberobello the trulli town, Caste del Monte, fabulous grottoes and many other places.

The climate in June, July, August and September is hot, however the constant cooling breezes between the Adriatic and Ionian seas keep Villa Santoro beautifully comfortable. May and October can also be beautiful with slightly more changeable weather. Even in November and December temperatures can reach 25C with beautiful clear skies.


Swiming and watersports of all sorts all along both easily reached coasts.

Tennis in Cisternino


Bike rides and tours

Architectural visits

Daily market in nearby towns

"Fabulous Stay at Villa Santoro in Puglia"
