Puglia, a favourite travel destination of many, is located on the heel of the boot of Southern Italy. Our two holiday villas are at the top of the Salento Region which is about as far south as you can go on the Italian mainland. There is so much to see, so much to discover, to explore and to experience, the sights, smells, flavours and the warmth of the Mezzogiorno. Mezzo giorno is Italian for midday. The Mezzogiorno is the area of southern Italy made up of a number of southern Italian regions, including Puglia. The area is known as the Mezzogiorno because of the heat of the midday sun.
Long a holiday destination for Italians and now fast becoming a favourite travel destination for visitors from throughout Europe and much further afield. Now you can discover the secrets of Puglia, this is your chance to experience Italian life as the Italians live it. If you crave the heat of the southern sun and the warmth of the southern Italians then this is the place for you.
But don’t expect noisy nightclubs, all-day breakfasts, fish and chips or roast dinners. This is not Ibiza or Tenerife or other well-known tourist hot spots. Neither is it the South of France. Sometimes shabby, somewhat down at heel in places, this is the real Italy. Here you will find acres of peaceful olive groves, sandy beaches, rocky coastlines, amazing architecture, years of history, restaurants from the simple trattoria to the more up-market restored manor houses and excellent food and wine.
