The Puglia/Molise region
Know as “Coast of the Trulli”, we are situated south of Bari, in one of the most beautiful areas of Puglia, a land rich in cultural sites, sea and tradition. Here you can see the Trulli of Alberobello, the Grottos of Castellana, the historical centre of Polignano with breathtaking views from its balconies, the mediaeval Conversano, Monopoli with its monumental churches, Cisternino with its alleys and “Grills”, the 'White City' of Ostuni, the zoo in Fasano, the Terracotta of Grottaglie, and Matera with its 'Sassi' (cave dwellings). ). Not to be missed is Capitolo by the adraitic coast, where you can enjoy the local life during the day among the rocky coves and the free beautiful sandy beaches, the private beach clubs which offer all the main facilities, where the fun goes through the night, with its fully equipped beaches turning into nightclubs.
Safari at Fasano, Grottaglie, famous for its pottery and the stones of Matera amongst others.
Not to be missed the sea; the best choice of beaches is in the Capitolo area (part of Monopoli) which has a huge selection of beaches, from rocky coves to long sand beaches and both private beach clubs with facilities as well as free beaches. Many of the private beaches turn into bars and nightclubs after dark, providing a very lively nightlife in the summer months. Monopoli has good restaurants, shops, a weekly street market and interesting churches in a pretty medieval old town.
