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.

"Perfect spot for a Puglian getaway"
We had a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable stay at Studio Violetta in Sogliano Cavour in the last week of June. Sogliano Cavour is a small town, but has a few bars and restaurants which you can visit if you don't want to drive one evening and the locals are very friendly. The apartment is in a great location for exploring the Salento region of Puglia, as beaches on both the west and east coast are within a 20 to 30 minute drive and beautiful baroque Lecce is also only a 30 minute drive away.
The owners, Kathy and Ray, were very approachable and friendly hosts and gave us information on the local area when we needed it, as well as home grown fruit and vegetables on occasion!
The apartment is very well-equipped, spacious and comfortable. It was also kept cool by two ceiling fans which were extremely welcome in the unusually hot June that we encountered. It was also lovely to use the small seating area outside for our morning coffee or to sit outside in the evening.
I would recommend this apartment to anyone - the rental price is very reasonable for its facilities and the location is perfect for exploring the heel of Italy and finding some great beaches.
