After Breakfast the choice is up to you:
Visiting local markets, the sights of Apulia, the beaches, just wandering the narrow streets of the ancient part of some town or other, enjoy the Italian coffee and dolce or a cocktail on the terrace of a bar and watch passers by in anticipation of a good Apulian lunch or dinner.
Sometimes guests come home in the afternoon for a nap or just lazing on the verandas.
We also have some DIY hiking routes because some prefer to enjoy their holidays slowly and walk from here tot f.i. Martina Franca, have lunch and come back by the local train.
There's something to do for all tastes and Villa Lavanda is a good central starting point for it all.
