Location description from owner

The Puglia region

Apulia is the south-easternmost region of Italy, just facing Albania and northern Greece from which a lot of influence was coming in the ancient times till the middle age (there are still villages in the south where a dialect directly linked to ancient greek is widely spoken).

It stretches north-west to south-east over more than 500 km, from the Gargano peninsula (the "heel" of Italy) till Santa Maria di Leuca, tip of Salento, the "Finibus Terrae" point where Ionian and Adriatic sea merges together. From one extent to the other, all-over the region you will always find the 3 main historical mediterranean cultivation: olive trees (the main producer in Italy, and the 2nd in the world after Andalucia), grape vineyards and wheat. This reflects of course in the traditional cuisine, which take main products from the land and the 2 seas.

The region presents a variety of landscapes, shaped by nature and history over the centuries. Original Peucetii and Japigi, ancient Greeks, Romans and Byzantines (many old chapels with original fresco remaining), Arabs, Normans, Swabians (with a huge influence of Frederic II, the "Stupor Mundi"), Spanish, all leave their legacy with monuments and influence: magnificent castles and fortresses (Castel Del Monte over all), wonderful romanic and baroque churches (Cathedrals of Trani, Bari, Ostuni, Brindisi, Lecce, Otranto), nobles towns (Trani, Lecce, Martina Franca, Gallipoli) and tiny villages (Locorotondo, Cisternino, Alberobello, Ostuni, Ceglie Messapica, Specchia...)

800 km of coast on 2 seas, Adriatic and Ionian, offer plenty of beaches, diving and snorkeling sites, as also picturesque sea villages (Vieste, Giovinazzo, Polignano, Monopoli, Otranto, Gallipoli, Ugento, Leuca) with traditional fish-markets and fisherman fleets.

But the truly hearth of Apulia lies in its rural areas, Daunia, Murgia, Salento, where lifetimes and traditions have been preserved over the years and not so much altered from modernity. Here you can still experience the authentic Southern Italy atmosphere.

The region offers a variety of outdoor activities and events during all summer, from guided excursions in the main naturalistic areas, to music concerts and festivals (Jazz, Lyric) and traditional religious feasts.

Locorotondo

The Trulli area, in the center of the region, is a traditional rural set: a hilly countryside of vineyards and olive groves, densely populated and dotted by these typical local architectures, established over the centuries.

The so named Valle d'Itria stretches among the white washed villages of Locorotondo, Cisternino, Ceglie Messapica and the magnificent baroque Martina Franca, with its Palace seat of a famous summer lyric festival. Ostuni, the "White Town" perched on the southern edge of the hills overlooking the adriatic coast and the secular olive groves, is one of the gems of the whole region.

The whole area lies on the southern edge of the Murge hills (Murgia dei Trulli; 400 m a.s.l. average), which slope down to the adriatic coast on the north (Monopoli, the ancient roman town Egnazia, Fasano, Ostuni) and the ionian one on the south (Taranto).

Both coasts offer long beaches with sand dunes (Torre Canne on the Adriatic, Castellaneta marina on the Ionian), as also rocky coves with pristine water (you can snorkel on the submerged pier rests of Egnazia).

The southern portion of the region, Salento, with its baroque towns (Lecce, Gallipoli, Otranto) and great coasts is just 1&1/2 hr by car, as also the nearby incredible town of Matera, UNESCO Heritage Site, settled on the cliff of a natural canyon.
