The Puglia region

Puglia is described as the heel on Italy;s boot, it is bordered by two Seas the Adriatic to the East and the Ionion to the South. Little is known of this real Italy for tourists and as such you will truly experience the friendliness of its people and sample the organic richness of its home grown products. Puglia is renowned for its regional wine, olives and pasta.Temperatures average in July and August at around 32 degrees and only a little less in June and September. April and May can be like warm summer days in the UK. We visited Puglia in October sporting shorts and t/shirts only to find locals in sweaters and coats - the locals must think the stranieri (foreigners) are mad!! Google knowitall /weather/puglia for up to date weather information. With sunshine most of the year and olive groves stretching along the coastline, it is tantalising to see the different seasons in play. You will never tire of the area for want of more places to visit and things to do.We will provide you with a visitors guide to Puglia outlining all the tours and attractions you might like to visit; even setting out a daily schedule of tours to follow!! We really want you to enjoy the Trulli of Allberobello, the Caves near Lecce, the beauty of the "white City" of Ostuni, the Zoo Safari and adventure land, Waterpark, fantastic markets and shopping. We can tell you of our favourite beaches and restaurants so that you get the most from your holiday. The list is endless and with the aid of our villa guides and information pack, and the use of our pre-loaded sat nav, we promise you a unique Puglian experience......

San Vito dei Normanni

San Vito Dei Normanni, a town of 20,000 inhabitants, is only 10 minutes away. Here you will find the tranquillity of tree lined historical squares and a walled castle area where you can chill out for an early morning coffee, pick up fantastic fresh breads and pastries for breakfast. All your shopping requirements can be found in this town so you don';t have to go far from the villa.There are a number of good restaurants and takeaways and a great market day on Monday mornings. Only 10 minutes away is the Adriatic coastline made up of private sandy coves, the beautiful Nature Reserve of Torre Guaceto, Fabulous Lidos; where sun loungers, parasols and restaurants await you and private stretches of beach and coves where you will find a scattering of ice cream bars, fish, meat, pasta and pizza restaurants ready to serve you.Further afield we will give you directions to all the local attractions such asOstuni the white City, you need to visit both day and night to truly appreciate the historic splendour of this ancient hidden city only 20 minutes away. Great market day Saturday mornings!! handbag and shoe heaven!Martina Franca is only 20 minutes away with lots of lovely boutiques and is renowned for its famous music festival in July and early August.Monopoli and Polignano a Mare are two unspoilt coastal cliff towns on the way to Bari.

Great for the kids take a pic-nic and enjoy a fun packed day. 50 minutes away towards Taranto you will find a great waterpark adventure fun for young and old...If you get the chance we recommend a visit to the famous town of Alberobello and its rustic trulli, dine in the cavernous restaurants there, a delight to experience but be warned it can be very busy during the day and is better to visit late afternoon approx 1 hr from San Vito. In the opposite direction heading South where do we start...
