Location description from owner

The Puglia region

The Puglia/Molise region

Puglia is a large, rural region making up the 'heel' of Italy. Hot and dry in the summer, mild and wet in the winter, and flatter than other parts of the peninsula, Puglia is Italy's bread-basket. It produces 80 per cent of Europe's pasta, more olive oil than the rest of Italy combined, and more wine than the whole of Germany. It's cuisine is based on fish and vegetables and epitomises the healthy Mediterranean diet eating and drinking is taken very seriously by local people, and is one of the principal pleasures of any visit to the region.

Just to the north of Brindisi, and less than 2 hours' drive away, is the remarkable Trulli region. These mysterious conical buildings dominate the area, and provide a stunning townscape in the town of Alberobello, a UNESCO world heritage site. Also within easy reach on a day trip are the lovely Baroque town of Martina Franca, and the 'white city' of Ostuni, a stunning hilltop village.

Cutrofiano

The Cutrofiano area

The villa is situated in the province of Salento, the south-easternmost region of Italy and surrounded by the Adriatic to the east and the Ionian to the west. The coastline is within easy reach and is exceptional, with every kind of seascape from small rocky coves to long sandy beaches. During July and August, the northern Italians arrive – often staying in the same apartment year after year – and suddenly the coastline is buzzing day and night, transformed by the Italians' love of sun, sea and sand.

Inland, the summer evenings are filled with festivals – sometimes there seems to be a 'festa' every evening, with fireworks and partying late into the night. One to catch is the 'Tarantella' festival, featuring a series of performances of this energetic and mysterious local dance, accompanied by the increasingly popular 'pizzica' music. Other festivals include 'Le Sagre' during August, celebrating local food and cuisine. And not to be forgotten are the weekly food markets with their fresh, cheap, locally produced fruit and veg - some of it little known outside the region. There are innumerable restaurants, often with no menu, where you will be presented with more food than a human stomach can hold. Eating and drinking, like going to the beach in summer, is an obsession here.

Salento has a strong Greek flavour from its time as part of the Byzantine Empire – in some towns a Greek dialect is still spoken. The 'contadini' (local landworkers) still eke out a living on their smallholdings as their parents and grandfathers did before them. There are dozens of attractive local towns, such as Otranto and Gallipoli, all with charming historic centres. 30 minutes away is Lecce, a Baroque gem of a city with extraordinary church facades and a relaxed and laid-back cafe culture and nightlife.

Our local town of Cutrofiano is renowned for its traditional pottery production. It has numerous bars, cafes and restaurants - including a recently restored farmhouse with an outdoor swimming pool and trattoria. Five minutes from town is a Spa resort for those who prefer intensive pampering. The list of things to do and discover is endless.
