The Puglia region
The Puglia/Molise region
Northern Puglia grows most of the duram wheat for the pasta of Italy, & the region makes as much wine as Australia but, this particular area is best known for its olive oil. Olive tress are everywhere which give the view a green 'carpet'.
Nearest beaches are ten minutes drive away, and there are many more easily accessed from the main coast road. The beaches are sandy and tend to be within coves of limestone which rise 2 or 3 metres out of the sea.
Villanova (15 mins by car) is the larger of the nearby small fishing villages along the coast, Boat hire is available at the marina here at reasonable prices.
Ostuni, the "Citta Bianca" is a magical place especially in the evenings. The architecture is a mix of all things southern Mediterranean. It looks like a north African town. Eating, drinking and relaxing out in the open air late into the night is a joy, for all ages. In July and more so in August the main Piazzas of Ostuni and Carovigno have live entertainment of all sorts of high quality, culminating in the Saint Oronzo horse parade in Ostuni on August 25/26th. Martina Franca has an Opera festival in July. Ostuni and Carovigno are working towns that operate all year round. This is a mainly agricultural area. The soil here is highly fertile and wonderful vegetables are available. The Markets tend to be on different days in different towns. Carovigno's is Tuesday morning, Ostuni has a full market on a Saturday morning and a vegetable market on a Wednesday morning. There are good supermarkets and smaller specialist grocers, butchers, fish vendors, cheese makers, wine, and fresh pasta shops in both towns.
There are blue flag beaches within a ten minute drive, (Villanova and Torre Pozzelle), and many other lovely beaches and coves to swim, snorkel, and sunbathe. In the summer evenings the coastal villages come alive with music, street vendors, ice cream parlours, restaurants and bars.
The beautiful Baroque towns of Lecce, Martina Franca, Locorotondo and the Famous Trulli of Alberobello are all a short drive.
Carovigno is 7km and takes 10 minutes to drive.
The beaches and harbour at Villanova take 10 minutes to drive with a 3 more minutes to Monticeli and Torre Pozzella
The beaches and harbour at Santa Sabina take fifteen minutes to drive.
Brindisi is a 30minute drive, Lecce one hour (less on the train from Carovigno or Ostuni railway stations), Otranto 90 minutes by car
