The Puglia region
Holiday in Puglia, a wonderful, unspoilt region of Southern Italy, to enjoy a taste of the real italy with fantastic cuisine, historic centres, long, hot, sunny summers. Rich in history and abounding with olive groves and vineyards, if you want to experience traditional Italy, Puglia is the place for you. Warmth, from the sunshine and the local people, hospitality, tranquil olive groves, superb cuisine and wine. Historic centres and other historic builidings to explore. Local festivals, dancing and music (don't miss the tarantalla!) and local foods to try. Everything you could want from a holiday in Italy.
Casa Mare is ideally situated to explore the whole region of Puglia. Close to Lecce, the Florence of the South, and to the Port of Brindisi, head north and inland for the historic centres of Ostuni (the White City), Martina Franca, Cisternino, Ceglie and others all within an easy drive. Further north (about an hours drive) you will find Fasano Zoo Safari and Alberobello, home of the Trulli, Castel del Monte and Castellana Grotto. Head south for the port of Otranto, Santa Maria di Leuca on the tip of the boot where the Adriatic meets the Ionian. South west for Gallipoli and and many other beautiful towns/cities and beaches. There is no shortage of things to do and see, or you could simply relax by the pool or on the beach!
Local activities include swimming, tennis, walking, cycling, fishing, horse riding, golf, wind-surfing, kite-surfing, go-karting. Other activities include wine-tasting, olive-oil tasting, cookery lessons, italian lessons, artisan and market tours. We work with a mult-lingual local Italian events co-ordinator who can organise just about anything and make your holiday really special.
If you are looking for bright lights, night clubs, fish and chips, all day breakfasts and karaoke on the beach - this is not for you.
If you are looking for sunshine, peace and quiet, rest and relaxation, local life, local culture, great food and wine, history and the warmth of the local italians you have found your holiday destination and your holiday villa!
Casa Mare is mid way between Lendinuso and Torre San Gennaro. Both are Italian holiday villages and within walking distance of Casa Mare. During the season there are often open air shows and local dancing. Both have restaurants, pizzerias, gelaterias etc.
Torchiarolo is a small town and has everything you need including a great family run trattoria (excellent food, superb wine).
Lendinuso is walking distance from Casa Mare and has a wonderful bakery/corner store open all year and a great butchers (seasonal) as well as markets, geletaria, pizzeria and other entertainment in the season. Torre San Genarro is also close by, half an hours walk or 5 minutes by car. Live entertainment in the season offering small supermarket, bakery, cafe-bars, restaurants and beaches. Nearby towns have supermarkets, butchers, fishmongers, greengrocers, post office, bank and hairdressers. Also some great restaurants and cafe-bars. Large hypermarkets, Auchan and Ipercoop, within 20 minutes drive.

"Only choose if you like LOTS of cats!!"
This was meant to be a special trip, a last treat before my husband retires in November and we can no longer afford private villas with a pool and it turned out to be so very disappointing. We realise… More
We are sorry that these guests did not enjoy their stay here. We do make it clear that there are cats here; we cross link to the Casa Mare cats Facebook page which shows all the cats that either live here our visit here. Most of the time there are very few cats around in the summer as they most mainly only visit when they need feeding, in the off season when there are no other people in the area.
We were here at the time that the guests were here and they did not once mention they had a problem with the cats. If they had we would have done what we could to mitigate any disappointment, or impact of the cats.
We have had many guests here over the last 7 or 8 years, including those who have cat allergies, and they have all been happy with the facilities provided and the presence of the cats.
It is a shame that the guests were disappointed with their holiday; had they spoken to us we could have offered them alternative accommodation or found another way to ameliorate their disappointment.

Most amazing welcome pack ever... Wine, first meal, breakfast!! We had a great time at casa mare.. The beautiful cats were an added pleasure, all the children had their favourites! Pool was great. Onl… More
It was unfortunate that the heat exchanger failed just as the guests arrived. The temperature of the pool water was 28+ and we put the pool cover on every night to help keep it up as much as possible. The heat exchanger was replaced as soon as we could get delivery of a new one and all is now back to normal.

We are glad that you enjoyed Casa Mare and the facilities. The location is as advertised, rural and by the sea, with the beach conditions variable according to the weather and the tides. Apart from the beach in front of the house the beaches at Torre San Gennaro and Lendinuso are both in walking distance and offer good sandy beaches with commercial facilities.

We love it when guests return; and we are always looking for new and different ideas to improve our offering. Hopefully we will have something new for you next year too.
