Puglia Activities

Now you’ve booked your Puglia villa holiday and made your travel plans how about something extra? There’s a wealth of Puglia activities, sporting and otherwise and we can help you get the best on offer.

From Artisan market tours to Wine Tours, and everything in between. There are many opportunities to explore and experience the real Puglia.

We have a some wonderful contacts who can arrange just about anything. If you want to do something that is not listed … just ask and we will see what we can do! If it’s not there, ask any way. One of our co-ordinates will almost certainly be able to organise it.

Of course we had to try out many of these activities and excursions, you can read about our week with family here, when we sampled many of the wonderful things to do and see in Puglia. We’ve also been on the Wine Tours more than once or twice, always learning something new, tasting different wines and having fun.

Come to Puglia, relax by the pool, on the beaches, but take time out to explore our adopted home land, but beware, you may well fall in love with Puglia and the Salento.
