The Puglia/Molise region
The New York Times voted Puglia and Basilicata two of southern Italy's most up-and-coming destinations - and rightly so.
PUGLIA - APULIA the heel of Italy with an Adriatic and an Ionian shoreline is the country 7th largest region blessed with beautiful clean seas and a fertile land.
The deep south of the region from Brindisi to Taranto and Lecce is known as The Salento Peninsula a glorious land steeped in history colonised by the Greeks in the 7th century BC and for centuries fought over by Normans, Saracens and Turkish invaders.
Puglia and in particular Salento is famous for its food and cuisine - LA CUCINA POVERA - cooking the simplest way by making the most of the ingredients available; think of making the tomato sauce from hand picked tomatoes, think of hand made pasta and dishes prepared with hand picked wild greens. Most of the fish in Italy is caught off the Apulian coast, 80% of the pasta in Europe is produced here and 80% of the olive oil originates in Puglia, but it is the raw ingredients - the greenest vegetables, the sweetest fruit that have put Apulia on the food map.
Previously known for quantity rather than quality, Puglia wines have now been recognised for their quality with the best produced in the Salento Peninsula famous for Primitivo - Negroamaro - Malvasia grapes. Take a look at your supermarket shelves - there you will find a wide selection of wines from Puglia Salice Salentino - Copertino - Primitivo - Rosso salento - Leone de Castris - Squinzano on and on - try them !
In the heart of the Salento area of southern Puglia, 20 minutes drive south west from Lecce and approximately equal time from the coast and beaches. We are surrounded by beautiful countryside, land cultivated by local farmers and historical cultural centres such as "Galatina, Gallipoli, Otranto".
The area offers comprehensive shopping, banks, post office a wide choice of high quality pizzeria/ trattorias, caffe bars and lots of sunshine.
Visit during the Summer months and be amazed through visiting villages to experience their local Sagra's there is somewhere to go every night and absorb the beautiful way of southern Italian life.

"Wonderful oasis of peace & tranquility with lots of interesting places to visit locally"
Just got back from a wonderful week at Villa Sponziello. The villa, terrace, pool & gardens are wonderful - the photos on the website don't do it full justice. Wonderfully equipped kitchen - we c… More

"Homely and comfortable accommodation with beautiful pool and local guide on hand"
This is a great spot for accessing the whole of Salento - both coasts and the very tip of the heel of Italy. You need a car - it is fairly remote. The pool is wonderful, fruit and veg growing in the garden and an amazing air of tranquility. The local contact for the property was unbelievably kind and helpful and made our whole stay a total pleasure. Also has air conditioning which is a great plus when it reaches 42 degrees! Really cool, dark rooms for my boys meant lots of lovely sleep for them and therefore also us! Hooray! Many thanks

"Wonderful house, very friendly and helpful owners, fantastic area"
First of all we would like to thank Christine, Giovanni and Christian for their hospitality and help throughout our stay – starting from easy booking of the villa, helpful direction from the airport, tips for the best beaches as well as fantastic fish restaurant in Gallipoli, introducing us to the owner of the best Ristorante on Sogliano Cavour…
The house is very comfortable for a big family, in great condition, clean, well equipped, with plenty of towels, kitchen equipment, cooking and cleaning materials. We really enjoyed terrace with outdoor kitchen and large garden with fresh vegetables we were allowed to enjoy. We should highlight fantastic pool (which Giovanni cleaned every other day!). We enjoyed it every day and our kids simply loved it! We also had a chance to taste fantastic Pugliese cousin during a great evening with Christine, Giovanni and their friends Giuseppe and Pina.
The location of the house is excellent. You can reach beautiful beaches of Gallipoli and Otranto in 25 minutes, as well as explore wonderful Salento. If you want to relax, you can simply stay in the villa and enjoy all its comfort and privacy.
