Puglia 'Apulia': Apulia region of Italy, as it is called in English, is Italy's boot heel, its southeastern most region. Gateway to and from the East, it has been conquered by legions of foreign rulers, most of whom lived elsewhere. The notable exception was Frederick II (1194-1250), the last Emperor of the Hohenstaufen line. An enlightened man, he built many castles which still grace the region, along with acres and acres of vineyards and olive groves. Apulia produces one-tenth of the wine drunk in Europe; its olive oil is renowned. Traditionally both of these commodities were mainly used to dilute their finer counterparts up north, but lately the local food artisans have begun creating some first-rate oils and vintages that are available throughout the region. They perfectly complement the super-fresh seafood and vegetables that are the staples of la tavola pugliese.

South of Italy: If you have already toured the northern part of Italy and are looking for something equally fascinating, completely different and much less crowded, this is a wonderful area to consider. It offers at least one excellent archaeological museum, a host of cathedrals dating back to the 10th century, several deserted and thus highly atmospheric, Greek and Roman ruins, a gleaming necklace of lively fishing villages, one of Europe's largest forests, a chain of medieval hill towns, and some of the very cleanest beaches and water in the Mediterranean. It also has its own subspecies of architecture, called barocco leccese. Characterized by extremely ornate carvings that cover the entire surface of churches and palazzi, its apex is reached in the delightful little city of Lecce.  

Trulli: There is one other attraction that you will see only in Apulia, and that is trulli. Whitewashed cones made of stones held together without mortar, they are visible in almost every wheat field and olive grove, where they serve as miniature barns. But they are at their most picturesque when clustered together in the hundreds, to form a town. This is Alberobello and it's a wonderful site you will never forget.

The Puglia/Molise region

L'Olivo is the perfect pied a terre from which to explore the cobbled streets of the centro storico, or visit the nearby towns of Ostuni, Martina Franca, Cisternino all within the beautiful Itria Valley with it's characteristic Trulli. Stunning beaches are 15 minutes away and the area abounds with historical sites and interesting places to visit. In summertime the towns come alive with music, processions and feste most evenings, where you can join in the festivities and soak up the atmosphere. Outside of the main season it may be quieter, but is no less beautiful and the warm sunshine, good food, uncrowded beaches and centuries old olive trees make it well worth a visit at any time of year.


Situated in a quiet street, just a few minutes from the main piazza of Ceglie Messapica, l'Olivo will give you a true taste of southern italian life. Meander through the whitewashed streets and see the ladies chatter whilst shelling almonds on the steps of their homes. Visit the castle and the old town with it's maze of cobbled streets and beautiful architecture. Shops, Pizzerias and a bakery with delicious olive bread are just around the corner, while bars and restaurants with al fresco dining are situated moments away.
