The Puglia/Molise region
Salento is a great all year round destination. In Spring, Summer and early Autumn there are many unspoilt rocky or sandy beaches to go to with crystal clear water and there are also many interesting and friendly towns and villages to visit all year. Sogliano Cavour has local bars, 4 restaurants, 3 supermarkets, butchers, a fishmonger, pharmacy, local specialist shops and a post office, all within walking distance of our apartments. There is also a large pine forest and a riding centre. There are beautiful beaches within a 30 minute drive of our apartments both on the east and west coasts. There is also what is called "The Maldives of Salento" near the most southerly point of Santa Maria di Leuca .
Olive and wine growing are the main agricultural industries in the area and you can also buy local handmade pottery which is sold all over the Salento region. There is a summer opening swimming pool nearby (small entrance charge) with a pizza restaurant attached.
The towns of Galatina, Cutrofiano and Corigliano D'Otranto are all within a five minute drive from our apartments and all have a variety of cafe bars and restaurants and historic churches.
Lecce is an exciting place to visit and is only 30 minutes away by car. It is rich in historical and religious heritage and is known as the 'Florence of the South' because of its baroque architectural style.
You can visit local markets and come "home" and perfect your Italian cooking skills.
Every year, at the beginning of June there are many celebrations. In August, Sogliano Cavour hosts the Locomotive Jazz Festival over 3 nights. During the second week of August the patron of Sogliano Cavour, San Lorenzo the Martyr, is celebrated followed by a festival with lots of food to eat and live music.
After a day on the beach you can spend the evening partying in a different town as each Salento town has music and food festivals.

"Marvelous apartment with excellent hosts"
My wife and I celebrated our 30th anniversary in Kathy and Ray's lovely apartment located in the charming town of Sogliano Cavour. The apartment itself was spacious, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. It was also well-equipped and very thoughtfully supplied with the basics (coffee, tea, milk, pasta, butter, wine, etc.) so that we could enjoy our first night without worrying about stocking the kitchen. Ray provided a very thorough orientation and left us with clearly written instructions and recommendations. They live close by and were available for additional information as needed. The town and surrounding area offer many restaurants and beautiful architecture. We found this to be a very reasonable and well-run holiday rental and we are happy to recommend it to others.

"Ideal location for seeing the beauty of Puglia!"
Situated between the beautiful beaches of the Adriatic and the Ionian Seas Sogliano Cavour is an ideal location. The property is very functional, has excellent wi-fi and reasonable air con. Kathy provided information concerning the best of everything including restaurants, beaches, markets and day trips. We had a great time and would recommend the apartment and the area.

"Tip Top Flat in a great location for exploring the heel of Italy"
Lovely flat. The owners have very recently renovated buildings in the centre of this sml town/village. So you get character and everything in tip-top condtion.
The owners are sociable and very helpful; happy to provide tips and info - which you may need if you go without a guide book or any Italian like we did! Besides a gr8 location to explore by car the heel of Italy.
The town/village has sml supermarkets, a couple of cafesband restaurants However it is sleepy and its v.close neighbour Cutrifiano has a wider choice of bars/ restaurants and if you have kids, a playground.
There was a sml festival in Cutriafiano when we were there celebrating the life of a resident. According to the owners there are often events/ festivals and we loved the place (we being 3 ladies mid to late 30s).
Top tip - In this part of Italy they are shut for what seems the whole afternoon - their Siesta must be a full 3 hrs! So up and at 'em if you want to go touring.
We are very happy that you loved the area and enjoyed your stay in our Apartment Verde in October. We are sure your Top Tip about Siesta closing will be very handy for other guests. Thank you very much for taking the time to review our apartment.
