The Salento, heart of PugliaSalento is the southernmost peninsula of Puglia. Puglia has been in the travel news for many years now. Often called the new Tuscany we have become accustomed to seeing Puglia tipped as the place to go on holiday. Now the Salento is becoming named as a new “iconic” destination. The Architectural Digest featured this recent article highlighting the Salento. Take a few minutes to read it and if you have not already booked your holiday in the Salento, Puglia you will certainly be tempted to do so.

Our two Puglia holiday villa rentals can be more appropriately named Salento holiday villa rentals. Both are located in the north of the Salento region, deep in Southern Italy. They offer villa accommodation for a relaxed holiday and a perfect location for exploring the delights of the Salento. From both Villa Rosa and Casa Mare you can easily visit Lecce, Ostuni, Otranto, Gallipoli and many other well known, or less so, towns and cities with fascinating historic centres.

Explore the coastlines of the Salento, the Adriatic to the east and the Ionian to the west. Visit Oria in the centre of the peninsula from where, on a clear day, you can see both the Adriatic and the Ionian seas. Up and down the coastlines there are wonderful beaches to explore. From isolated sandy bays, marine reserves, commercial lidos to free beaches there is so much to do, so much to see.
