The Puglia region

Welcome to Puglia/Apulia (poo-lia), Italy's south-eastern most region, the heel of the boot we learn about in our earliest geography lessons!

In many respects, Puglia is the perfect holiday destination, offering not only some of Italy's loveliest beaches but also a sublime climate, a series of fascinating towns, a number of important archaeological sites and, last but certainly not least, an excellent culinary tradition bristling with local specialities!

With over 800km of coastline, Puglia is well-loved by those with a penchant for beaches or life on the open sea! Whether you spend time on the Adriatic shores around the Straits of Otranto or the enormous stretches of sandy beaches on the Ionian Sea in the south-west, you will never have to go far to find an ideal spot. All this with a climate as warm and sunny as anywhere in the Mediterranean!

Puglia's history is inextricably linked with those of other Mediterranean countries and the invaders who came from afar: the ancient Greeks, the Romans, the Byzantines, the Normans, Emperor Fredrick II and the Spanish Bourbons. All left their imprint in some tangible way.

The main towns and cities include northern Foggia, Bari, the regional capital, Brindisi, a bustling port town, Taranto, one of Italy's most important naval ports and beautiful Lecce. Each has its own significant attractions and splendid baroque or mediaeval old town centres. Puglia is also home to some uniquely delightful small towns, such as the white walled City Ostuni, Otranto, the fortified island town of Gallipoli and, on the southern tip, Santa Maria di Leuca, with its opulent Liberty style sea-front villas.

The central Puglian towns of Alberobello, Locorotondo, Cisternino and Martina Franca are famous for delightful old town centres and their trulli, traditional circular stone houses with conical roofs. The centre of Alberobello is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, thanks to the high concentration of these distinctive constructions.

Local and international festivals add a little spice to life, especially in the summer with events such as the Otranto Jazz Festival and La Notte della Tarante, where the area's traditional dance, the Pizzica is celebrated.

So much to explore, so much beauty to contemplate and so many things to do!

Cisternino

One of the most stunning towns when driving from the airport to the property. Wandering through the streets today, visitors are charmed by Ostuni's mediaeval layout. The narrow back streets, little passages and flights of steps make it delightfully easy to lose one's bearings! Suitably, however, the climax of any visit arrives when you reach the highest part of town, home to the imposing Archbishop's palace and the 15th century Concattedrale with its curvaceous, symmetrical façade and rose window.

The views from Ostuni are, by themselves, reason enough to make a trip there. Wonderful vistas abound from all angles, the best of which offer 360-degree panoramas of the surrounding countryside and the Adriatic Sea.

The coastline near Ostuni (just 8km away) boasts some of Puglia's loveliest beaches whose cleanliness and quality of amenities are testified to by the 5 Blue Flags won in recent years.

Cisternino, boasts a small, utterly charming old town centre that has remained virtually intact for centuries. Its whitewashed houses, narrow, shady streets, historic churches and elegant central piazza open out onto a series of panoramic view points from which visitors can take in the surrounding countryside, with its rolling hills, dry stone walls and white-tipped conical trulli roofs piercing the green fields.

It is a is lovely town to visit at any time of day, though there is something particularly magical on a summer's evening as the sun sets and the locals come out for their evening passeggiata (stroll). The restaurants, gelaterie and bars around the piazza fill up and the atmosphere becomes gently hedonistic.

Martina Franca has long been the commercial centre of the area, ever since Philip of Anjou granted it tax free status and various other privileges in 1310.

With Franca now appended to its name, old Martina was soon attracting new residents, including noble families and businessmen. Elegant palaces (at least 20 of note) and churches (over 15) began springing up throughout the old centre, testimony to the new-found wealth that was flowing into the town.

Until the reunification of Italy in 1861, Martina Franca was a fully walled town, with 24 towers and four gates. As it evolved to cater for more modern requirements, however, some of these towers were removed and other access roads punched into the walls. However, the four Renaissance and Baroque gates still exist, effectively delineating the old town from the more modern 19th century part of town, which also has some fine buildings and a shady park.

Opposite the park is the wide, tree-lined expanse of Piazza XX Settembre, which leads through the Porta di Santo Stefano (one of the four gates) into Piazza Roma, home to the impressive 17th century Palazzo Ducale. From here it is a short walk through the narrow streets to Piazza Plebiscito, the true heart of the town and backdrop to its masterpiece, the delightful Basilica di San Martino. Its intricate, sandy-coloured, über-Baroque façade is extremely fine, especially when illuminated by the evening sun.

During the summer months there is always something festive going on in one of the towns from firework displays, fashion shows, to outdoor cinema and blues and jazz bands.

The Festival della Valle D'Itria
Classical music and opera festival that has been running since 1975.
