Feeling jaded, stressed, in need of a holiday? Take a look at our Puglia “Well-being” Week, Available in May, early June and late September to take advantage of the warm sunny weather without it being too hot. Take advantage of this vacation and you will go home feeling refreshed and relaxed.
We will create a tailored package for you whether you want just a little yoga, beach and pool time and pampering or you want something more strenuous. There will be time too to explore Puglia and our special area, the region of Salento, either independently or as part of one of our Puglia Experience days.
Accommodation is at Casa Mare, a peaceful location beside the Adriatic.
A typical program goes something like this :
Day 1 – On arrival day you will have time to settle in and perhaps explore the locality a little. Depending on arrival times a light lunch will be served and dinner will be provided a local chef.
Day 2 – Every day we will begin with an early morning walk beside the sparkling Adriatic. You can set your own pace, if you prefer to jog or run we will provide you with routes to follow, by the sea and in the country. We will end the walk/run with a refreshing swim in the sea, or in the swimming pool.
Time for breakfast. Continental breakfast served alfresco under the flowering arbor or, if you prefer, on the beach. On the menu will be the best Pugliese cold meats, cheeses, cereals, yogurts, fresh bread, fruits, coffee or tea.
After breakfast we will take a trip to either Torchiarolo or Squinzano giving you the opportunity to do a little essential food shopping and experience a typical Pugliese town. The focus today is on rest and relaxation, spend the rest of the day by the pool or on the beach. Late afternoon will give you the opportunity for a yoga session and / or a massage before aperitivo is served by the pool, a curtain raiser for the barbeque and cocktail (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) evening.
Day 3 – Take a wine tour in the morning. Wine tours are chauffeured and our guide is fluent in English, Italian and French. Apart from the opportunity to taste and buy some of the best wines from Puglia you will learn a lot about the wines and wine-making and have a lot of fun too.
