About Apulia

The region Apulia (Puglia in Italian) forms the spur and heel of Italy. Rich in beautiful landscapes, coastline, history and culture, it is now a popular destination for holiday rentals to enjoy relaxing and exciting holidays. Luxury self-catering villas with pool and apartments near the sea are spread along the region, offering plenty of choice to take a break from the every day life and to explore the area.

Apulia is a land of pristine nature. It boasts vast and diverse natural landscape, starting with the National Park of the Gargano and the Murge, the marine reserves of the Tremiti Islands and Torre Guaceto. The countryside is dominated by gentle, fertile land where tasty vegetables, grapes and olives are grown.

Accommodation in Apulia

Accommodation in Apulia Apulia is a land of history and art. Many towns and villages are expression of Romanesque, Renaissance and Baroque eras and they are not short in museums, historical buildings, archaeological parks, and castles. The most famous among them is Castel del Monte, the 13th-century castle constructed by the Emperor Frederick II and declared UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Apulia is a land of devotion and old traditions. From cathedrals and sanctuaries to patron saints feasts and festivals, Apulia will not lack to enchant you with suggestive traditions and local customs kept alive with pride. The patron saint's feast is celebrated in each town with processions, illuminations, fireworks and air balloons. Devotion brings pilgrims to Monte San Michele, along the ancient Via Sacra Langobardorum, or to San Giovanni Rotondo, Padre Pio’s hometown.

TRULLI

Apulia is the land of TRULLI. A trullo is a traditional Apulian dry stone hut with a conical roof. Their style of construction is specific to the Itria Valley and they were used as temporary field shelters and storehouses or as permanent dwellings by small proprietors or agricultural laborers. Trulli may be found in and out of Alberobello, and in the areas around Locorotondo, Fasano, Ostuni, Cisternino, Martina Franca and Ceglie Messapica. Many of our self-catering villas and apartments consist of restored and re-decorated trulli; some of these properties are truly charming and romantic, some have a rustic atmosphere that will give your holiday a unique touch of style.

Please view Villa Geli, a three-bedroom private villa with pool near Fasano and just 15km from the sea. Villa Pasquale is constructed around two trulli and has a fascinating fairy tale look. If a two-bedroom self-catering accommodation is spacious enough for your party, please consider Trullo Martina and Trullo Solare. If you are rather after luxury apartments with shared pool and perfect location, Trulli Belli is one of the best options for you. These two-bedroom self-catering flats belong to a beautiful complex of three trulli accommodations situated on a small hill near Alberobello.

Accommodation in Apulia BARI & MONOPOLI
The towns of BARI and MONOPOLI and their surrounding areas are another interesting option for holiday rental. No matter if you book a rustic private villa with pool in the countryside or a luxury apartment on the coast with spectacular sea views; you will be impressed by the hidden treasures of these two Apulia towns, from the Basilica di San Nicola and the Bari Cathedral to the sunny beaches of Monopoli.

Our self-catering coastal apartments in Monopoli are perfect to enjoy the sea and the spectacular sea views from the furnished terraces. If you are after a romantic break, please choose the cozy one-bedroom apartment Dino Bello; if you rather need a more spacious accommodation, the four-bedroom flat Raggio di Sole is the one for you.

Only 6km from Monopoli is Trullo Macchia, a lovely private villa with pool with three bedrooms. Should you need a fourth bedroom, please view Masseria dell’Isola, a tastefully restored old villa with pool in a secluded and quiet location near Conversano.

 

CLIMATE & MORE ...

Blessed with an average 300 days of sunshine per year, Apulia has a wonderful climate. The hilltop towns in the Itria Valley always enjoy a breeze, even in the hottest months of the year and the humidity is generally minimal. It is a lovely dry heat that warms your very bones, either whilst sitting in a piazza enjoying an ice cream, or on the beach soaking up some rays before taking a dip in the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic Sea. Rainfall is scarce and generally concentrated in the winter months. Clement weather in the autumn often permits swimming in the sea late into October.

Apulia is a paradise for food lovers. Challenge yourself in the kitchens of our self-catering accommodations, cooking the tastiest vegetables of Italy with the glorious oil coming from the cultivation of magnificent olives! Orechiette pasta (little ear shape, handmade pasta) is the signature pasta of Apulia. Not to be missed are the mouth-watering burrata cheese, a fresh and delicate type of mozzarella, and the smoked caciocavallo and scamorza cheese, delectable with a spoonful of onion chutney or honey.

With so many miles of coastline, Apulia does not lack great seafood, such as mussels, prawns and clams, cod and sea bass. February is the time of the sea anemones, treasured for the delicate red flesh and eaten either raw or cooked in a classic pasta dish. 

We invite you to taste the Altamura bread before leaving the region, widely renowned for its unmistakable taste and yellow color derived from wheat flour. Not to be missed are the glorious Aleatico, Primitivo di Manduria and Negroamaro wines!

Our self-catering private villas with pool and our apartments closer the coast are ideal starting points to explore the rest of the region and discover the beauty of SALENTO. Salento is the southeastern extremity of the Apulia region, the proper "heel" of the Italian "boot". Salento peninsula is a rock of limestone dividing the Adriatic Sea from the Ionian Sea and it boasts a number of remarkable places such as the Alimini Lakes and Porto Selvaggio. Here the coast can be sandy or rocky, it features pristine beaches and crystal-clear waters, and it is dotted with Norman watchtowers.
