    Local information

    • What to do - what to see:
    • When you're on holiday in Apulia, there are numerous towns to visit, a few close and others more distant, which are enticing enough to plan for the day. The eastern seaboard tends to be most evocative of the Crusader history, as the ports along this coastline were used over many hundreds of years, not only by warriors embarking upon conquest of the Holy Land, but by countless pilgrims who preferred the perils of the sea to the tortuous overland route of the Anti-Taurean mountains, Syria and Palestine. In fact, it is no coincidence that many of the great churches were built during this time to offer sanctuary to the old or sick traveller.
    • Whilst the northern part of Apulia around Bari has a much more European and industrial flavor, the arid, sun-baked area central, and leading south west towards Gallipoli, is so dramatically unlike the rest of Italy, eschewing the fashionable, and chic, big names and smart restaurants, that it is seemingly a region that never became part of Europe. The whole peninsular displays a startling diversity of culture, topography and demographic. If you're on holiday in Apulia, our advice would be to take a little look everywhere. Our trullo in Apulia is just about in the middle of it all - so you are ideally situated, wherever your travels take you, to cover any of these destinations within a day.
    • Eating Out
    • What to say about the food, apart from the fact that it is fabulous. We cannot begin to number the osteria, and tavola calda that have filled our tummies over the years. Pugliese dishes will astonish you, and you won't be able to resist their unique, fresh and genuine flavors, because in Puglia there's a deep-rooted culinary tradition, composed mostly of simple dishes, made with local products. Our trullo with its close proximity to all of the major hill and coastal towns, is right in the middle of an incredible selection of places to dine out, or just to shop for wonderful fresh and local ingredients to conjure up your own gastronomic delights, using the first class indoor and outdoor cooking facilities at the trullo.
    • Beaches-18 km
    • Then, of course, there is the sea and beautiful coastline. Only 25 minutes away are the fabulous beaches of the Adriatic. There is a whole coastline (the longest in Italy) to choose from, where there are sandy stretches and rocky coves. Some beaches have 'paid for' areas, where you can hire beds and umbrellas, in season, but the clear majority are free. When you stay at our charming trullo, we provide you with beach chairs, parasol, picnic hamper and cool boxes. In fact, all that you would need for a day at the beach.
    • Ostuni-8 km
    • One of the most stunning cities in southern Italy, famous for the dazzling effect of its whitewashed houses. It is a genuine and charming example of Mediterranean architecture. The city of Ostuni is a series of levels, staircases, small roads, alleys and arches, hidden behind the great medieval bastion-ed walls. The architecture of Norman and Byzantine invaders permeates every niche, and the vista of the olive grove encrusted coastal plan is stunning. The brightness of its whitewashed houses, set against the pink-tinged brown of its duomo, sets the scene, brilliant in the full sun, Ostuni has become the fabled Città Bianca (the White City). For a holiday in Apulia, having Ostuni on your doorstep is a real bonus.
    • Ceglie Messapica-9 km
    • A settlement since the fourth century BC, with 5 km of its original fortification walls still standing. The 15th century castle and bishop's residence, with Norman tower was built on the site of a far older Greek acropolis, in turn replaced by a Roman temple. Today the site is being entirely restored by the commune in partnership with the European Union, and will form an extensive museum of local history and educational centre. Famed also for its gastronomy, no visit to Ceglie would be complete without the purchase of its famed 'dolce Cegliese' or Ceglie cakes, which are divine. Equally restaurants in Ceglie are renowned throughout the peninsular for the quality of their fare. Ceglie is also surrounded with many examples of the trulli.
    • Cisternino-1 5km
    • Sits high above a virtual 'sea' of olive groves and vineyards on the edge of the famous Val d'Itria. Visit the 'centro storico' a fine example of 'spontaneous architecture', alleyways, houses, churches added to, built upon, partly extended over the centuries presents the visitor with a charming warren of tiny streets, and exit through the Porte Grande, an 11th century Norman arch to the most stunning panorama of a sea of olive groves. Famous also for its 'fornelli' or stoves, tiny restaurants offering delicious barbecued food to eat in or take home, free concerts every Sunday in summer in the central piazza, or the la

    Additional information

    • Lecce-79 km
    • The capital of the Salento region due to its geographical position between the Ionic and Adriatic Seas. Known as "the Florence of the south", Lecce has a wealth of architectural monuments in Baroque style, with gargoyles, cherubs and portals. There are many sites of artistic and historic interest, including the Church of St Croce, Piazza St Oronzo, the Column of St Oronzo, Porta Napoli, Lecce Cathedral, the Roman Amphitheatre seating 25,000 spectators and much more. Lecce is certainly worth a visit on any holiday over here.
    • Bari-90 km
    • The commercial capital of Apulia, Bari was first settled in the 3rd century by the Romans, and later invaded by Lombards, Saracens and Byzantines, all of whom have left their marque upon the city. The cathedral famously houses in its crypt, the remains of St. Nicholas, whom we refer to as Santa Claus, and thus Bari has become also a centre for pilgrimage for both the orthodox and catholic faith. A fine Swabian castle constructed during the time of Frederick II is open to the public, and the stamp of Napoleon was left, clear for all to see in the fashionable shopping district, reminiscent of any Parisian boulevard. The delightful promenade, some 15 km in length offers a pleasurable walk watching the many ships entering and leaving the mainland for Greece.
    • Matera-100 km
    • A World Heritage Site located in Italy's Basilicata region, on the north-eastern fringe of Apulia, was, with Grassano, its much smaller neighbour, a backdrop to Carlo Levi's stunningly beautiful book "Christ Stopped at Eboli", as well as being the film location for Mel Gibson's "The Passion of Christ". Matera is a unique example of a cultural tradition and civilisation which stretches back to the Neolithic age. The old city was created out of a rocky ravine, the numerous natural caves being the first houses of the Neolithic inhabitants. Today these 'sassi' homes have been turned into boutique houses, and hotels, a far cry from the malarial backwater of Snr. Levi's most poignant book. Matera is another must see site to visit.
    • Gallipoli-117 km.
    • Gallipoli is quite clearly divided into two parts, the more recent, enveloping the marina, and main habitation, and the old 13th century city built around the Aragonese fort which guards the entrance to the bay. This walled island is connected to the mainland by a 6th century bridge, and although small comprises homes and churches of splendid Baroque architecture, in particular that of Sant' Agata built in 1629. No holiday over here would be complete without a visit to the wonderful fish market located under the bridge. Although small, the range and freshness of the produce is breathtaking.
    • Otranto-130 km
    • A picturesque fishing port in the south east of the region this is one of the most popular destinations for visitors. Boasting a 15th century Aragonese castle (today open to the public), and defensive walls which encircle the old town, Otranto is one of the prettiest places of interest in the whole peninsular. Not to be missed is the beautiful cathedral of Sant' Maria Assunta, consecrated in 1088, displaying a massive rose window, and one of the longest Roman mosaic to be discovered anywhere in Europe.
    • Castel del Monte-450 km
    • This most astonishing castle, constructed at the behest of Frederick II during the 13th century is a site of rare architectural value. The central octagonal keep is bordered on all sides by octagonal watch towers, which each have eight rooms on each floor. Nobody is quite certain whether this unique building served as a military fortress, hunting lodge, or was specially commissioned as astrological observatory. Whatever may have been it's original purpose, Castel del Monte is spectacular.
    • GETTING THERE
    • By air there is a choice of two international airports, served by Ryanair, Easyjet , BA and others, both easily reached within the hour; Bari in the North (80 km) and Brindisi ( 64 km) in the south are reached in 44-55 minutes.

    • MORE TO SEE
    • Bari being the commercial capital city with 250 000 inhabitants offers the best shopping, a grand opera house, called the Petruzzelli teatro; a large medical city centre with many museums.
