The Puglia/Molise region
Salento this peninsula extending southeast between Ionic and Adriatic contains landscapes considered to be the most beautiful in Italy.
On the coast of the Adriatic sea still free from excessive tourism,visitors are rewarded with breathtaking scenery,cliffs overhanging the ocean,marine grottos and hidden inlets where one can enjoy the beauty of the sea.
Descending from Lecce often called ' Florence of the South' for the incomparable beauty of its churches and monuments,we find gorgeous locales such as Otranto,Santa Cesarea,Castro and on the extreme point of Salento Santa Maria Di Leuca.
Puglia has some of the finest and reasonably priced foods and wines in the country.
Also local restaurants, agriturismo's and cafes are all reasonably priced.
Uggiano La Chiesa............... is a typical rural Salentina town the perfect location to feel like one of the locals and is only a two minute drive from Otranto.It is also only 2 km distance from the stunning Adriatic coastline....a drive not to be missed from Uggiano to the 'Tip of the Heel' at Santa Maria di Leuca.
Quiet and peaceful location with nearby facilities of restaurants,pizzerias and supermarkets.
Explore local markets or be adventurous and try the local cuisine in an agriturismo restaurant....La Scallele and La Fattoria are two we would recommend.
The Pizzeria's In Uggiano are L'Incontro,L'Arcata and Al Capone all have a take-away service available also.
There is an excellent Restaurant in the town called the Gattamora which has a first class name for itself in the local area.
Otranto...........The Adriatic port of Otranto is the eastern most city in Italy and is protected by the powerful Aragonese Castle and overlooks an emerald sea.
Otranto was a pitstop for the Turks,The Crusaders,Byzantines and The Normans and each left their mark on the area.
Uggiano La Chiesa is an ideal base to discover surrounding towns and cities .Just to give you an idea of distances: Uggiano La Chiesa to the following places -
Santa Cesarea Terme 10km,Castro 22km,Poggiardo 15km,Maglie 17km,Lecce 46km,Capo Santa Maria Di Leuca 45km,Galatina 32km,Gallipoli 68km.
Ideal location for Go-karting at La Conca circuit Muro Leccese, which is only 10km distance away.
The apartment is ideal if you are attending the Scuola Porta d'Oriente language school in Otranto as it is only a five minute drive away.
An ideal location if you are organising a biking holiday in Puglia and the self-catering facilities are perfect!
There are two swimming pools further down the coast one at Zinzulusa Caves and the other at Castro(BluBay) both are only open in High Season.
Water sports are available at Alimini Beach(north of Otranto) only during the month's of July and August.
