We are often asked when is the best time to visit Puglia. The short answer is anytime. Personal preferences need to be taken into consideration. Do you like a hot and sunny holiday, to relax and chill on the beach by the pool? Then mid June through to the end of August is for you.

Do you want to explore the area with days out combined with beach and pool relaxation days. If so consider May to the middle of June and September.

However if you want to really explore, learn more about the culture, history, architecture, food, wine and the people then the months of October, November, March and April are the best. Certainly consider December through February too but be prepared for chilly evenings and possibly quite a bit of rain.

In October of this year, after the end of the main summer season, we took the opportunity to spend time with regular visitors and introduce them to more of Puglia and the Salento. Our week included private dinners in a Wine School, visits to the local market, to wine-makers, an English-Italian-American lunch party, a private visit to an old palazzo, the discover of a wonderful independent “biscotti” maker, wine-tasting and a lunch in a “pastificio”.
