The Puglia/Molise region
Puglia is one of the last corners of Italy where you don't see a Pub nor a Fish & Chips Shop, and may it long last. Italian food is well known worldwide, and the Puglia region is a strong contributor to the Italian cusine.
Wines and olives are produced in abundance ( 20-25% of Italy's production), and a quality to match.
Historic places and heritage stands up to any region in Italy, from World Heritage Alberobello with its over 1000 trullies, to the baroque Lecce.
The countryside varies from dramatic mountains, to fertile lush valleys, rightly called the kitchen gardens of Italy.
The varied coastline of the area offer sandy blue flagged beaches, and rugged dramatic coast.
The Ostuni area
Ostuni the "Citta Bianca" with its old part perched on a mount, offer narrow winding alleyways, with architecture inspired by the various rulers of the area over hundred of years. The variety of Ristorante's and Pizzerias, places for a quiet drink, add to the atmosphere of this cosmopolitan city.

Having had a most enjoyable holiday in Villa Caruso last year we decided to return in 2011. On arrival there is a very generous Welcome Pack which is most acceptable. The house itself is extremely well equipped, and has everything you need on a day-to-day basis. The pool is very well maintained, and is a real bonus in the very hot weather. The large garden has not only almond trees, but also a lemon tree and a large vine - freshly picked lemons go down a treat in the G & T's! The house is located in a rural setting of stone walls and olive trees, but also near the beautiful city of Ostuni, and the sandy beaches of the Adriatic. A car is a necessity, which can be easily acquired at either Bari or Brindisi airports, or at the train stations. We would highly recommend the house and the location for a holiday, and we ourselves would hope to return for another visit

What a lovely area of olive groves, almond trees and lemon blossom. Completely relaxing spot with easy access to the beaches and hill top town like Ostini gives the best of all worlds. Take the time to visit the hill top towns in the evenings for lovely restaurant meals but buy your own food in the wonderful market in Ostini on Saturdays.
The house is quaint as part of it is a trulli one of the conical shepherds "huts." In the region I loved Lecce with its character and rich warm golden stone buildings.
