Villa in Contrada Fantese
Casa M 101
Settle into a life-affirming stay in the Ostuni countryside with this artfully-designed villa. A low profile, complete with ample space and fine interiors will match the highest expectations, as will the cozy wood fireplace, tree-wrapped terrace and rustic bedrooms; a true mix of new and old. The old-world towns of Cisternino and Martina Franca are a short drive through enchanting countryside. Begin your day with a refreshing swim in the lengthy pool that partners this luxurious villa, before emerging and relaxing on the shaded sun recliners. It’s the simplicity yet finery of the property that helps it to stand out so well, with the stone floors and wooden panelled walls providing a cleanly defined and modern-feeling space for friends or family to relax in. A brilliantly polished dining table, rich furniture and cast-iron fireplace helps to round out the attractive interiors, while dry-stone walls splash a touch of Italian countryside character for guests to wake up to. The huge, carved benches and tables of the villa’s gardens are the real star of the property, providing a comfortable and natural gathering space for groups, all under the leafy limbs of the property’s almond trees.   Despite being located in peaceful Italian countryside, guests can take advantage of close access to a number of renowned Italian towns, as well as the delights of the Ostuni coastline. It’s hard not to fall in love with nearby Cisternino, which seems frozen in time with its white houses, winding streets and classic piazzas. Guests are less than 20 minutes from a range of sandy beaches, with the Adriatic sunshine and plenty of great swimming options, while the medieval charm and glorious seasonal processions of Ceglie Messapica are also close by. After a packed day, embrace a glass of Brindisi Rosso wine by the glowing fire pit at the villa. Copyright © Luxury Retreats. All rights reserved.

Trullo in Fasano
Cjase Madràc (Trullo)
This picturesque retreat looks out over lush rolling hilltops, distant sea views, and the historic towns of Puglia. Arched doorways, tiled floors, and unique accents (think: rope-covered lamps and shuttered windows) create a design scheme that is ruggedly elegant. Stroll through aromatic gardens planted with thyme bushes and lemon trees. Along the coast you’ll find beach clubs, shopping, and spas. Handcrafted wooden furniture and exposed brick walls lend a rustic charm to the interior. Settle onto a plump love seat, tucked away in an intimate alcove. The patio is the perfect place to bask in the glow of the morning sun or to watch the dramatic nightfall. A broad, natural stone staircase leads down to the teal-hued infinity pool, inviting you in for a refreshing swim. Cacti, eucalyptus trees, and other verdant shrubbery are landscaped around the backyard. Gather under the terrace pergola in the balmy evening and uncork a bottle of the region’s finest wine. An alfresco table sits under a vine-covered trellis; a great spot to savour your welcome dinner, consisting of traditional Apulian fare. Your pick of restaurants, bars, and sandy shores are a short drive away from the villa. On a day trip, visit Lecce—a historic city known for its baroque buildings. Nearby Savelletri beach features crystal clear turquoise waters and thatched parasols to lounge under. Fragrant olive trees, narrow streets, and ancient architecture await in Fasano.

Che bello trullo
Olives and fruit hang heavy on the branches of trees shading this traditional Puglia estate.

All about Apulia

Planning a Puglia vacation? Read on to find out more!

Situated in the heel of the boot that is Italy, Puglia is sometimes overlooked in favor of the Amalfi Coast or Sicily, but the country’s south-easternmost region is deserving of your attention. Boasting over 500 miles of coastline, Puglia makes an ideal choice for a beach vacation, while ancient towns such as Lecce, Martina Franca, and Alberobello are rich in both charm and culture. With a history that has been shaped by the Ancient Greeks, the Romans, the Byzantines, the Normans and the Spanish Bourbons, Puglia is a unique and fascinating destination.

Thanks to its location on the Adriatic Sea, Puglia’s climate is warm and sunny for most of the year, with temperatures ranging from 70°F to 90°F from late April to early November. The beaches are busiest in the warmest months of July and August when most Italians take their vacations. The region has two airports, in Bari and Brindisi, which have regular flights to and from cities across Europe.

Soak up the sun and swim in the sea

Although the glitzy Amalfi Coast on Italy’s western shore is better known among tourists, Puglia’s sandy beaches have just as much to offer – if not more. One of the best-known beaches in the region is the amusingly named Punta Prosciutto or ‘ham point’ on the eastern side of the Salento peninsula. With white sands and clear, turquoise water, this informal spot is perfect for a day of sunbathing and swimming with family. A little further down the coast, there’s Porto Selvaggio, a protected nature reserve just outside the pretty baroque town of Nardò. Although it is inaccessible to cars, the Baia di Porto Selvaggio can be reached by a short walk through a fragrant pine forest, and the idyllic bay boasts some of the Mediterranean’s cleanest waters.

Marvel at the architecture in beautiful Lecce

Check out the trulli in Alberobello

Situated amid the hills of Puglia’s central Valle d’Itria, the small town of Alberobello is famous for one thing: trulli – the distinctive conical houses that look like something out of a fairytale. Although you’ll find trulli scattered around the region, it is the sheer concentration of these curious limestone buildings that have earned Alberobello its UNESCO World Heritage status. Indeed, there are over 1500 trulli densely packed onto the westernmost of the town’s two hills, with most of them dating to the 14th century. For the best vantage point, take the steps to Piazza del Popolo, where you can admire the quaint scene from the Belvedere Trullo lookout.

Savor the local specialties

Of course, almost every region in Italy is famous for its cuisine, but even in a country known for its fabulous food, Puglia stands out. Year-round sunshine and warm temperatures create the perfect conditions for growing vegetables, so expect fresh zucchini, eggplant, tomatoes, and peppers to feature heavily in most dishes. Puglia also boasts its own traditional varieties of pasta, which are made with just flour and water since eggs were considered a luxury in this historically poor region. Orecchiette (‘little ears’) is the best known, but look out for troccoli, cavatelli, curti, gruessi and more, all of which are traditionally topped with local fare such as rapini (a type of broccoli), mussels, ricotta, white beans, wild fennel, and zucchini flowers. Cheese is a particular specialty here – don’t miss the fantastic, fresh burrata di Andria, which is usually drizzled with fragrant olive oil, or pampanella, which derives some of its flavor from the fig leaves in which it is wrapped. For dessert, try pasticciotto, a traditional pastry from Lecce, alongside a caffe leccese – a shot of espresso served on ice and mixed with sweet almond milk.

Experience the luxury of our villas in Puglia

If you’ve been tempted by the charm of Puglia, take a look at our selection of vacation rentals in the region.

Ostuni rentals

Otherwise known as la citta bianca or ‘the white city’ thanks to the whitewashed houses clustered on the hilltop, Ostuni itself is a beautiful medieval city with panoramic views of the Adriatic Sea and the surrounding countryside. Outside of the city, the area is host to some of Puglia’s best beaches, including Lido Morelli and Costa Merlata. OurOstuni rentals can accommodate up to 20 guests, and there’s even a chance to experience the region’s famous trulli – one of our villas is built around a cluster of eleven of the conical structures which have been restored to create a unique vacation rental.

Marina di Pulsano villas

Situated just outside the attractive town of Taranto, ourMarina di Pulsano villas are modern and luxurious, with swimming pools and plenty of outdoor space to enjoy the glorious Italian sunshine.

Mesagne villa

One of the most remarkable vacation rentals in Puglia, thisMesagne villa is brimming with character and history. Surrounded by olive groves, the property is a restored 16th-century masseria, or fortified farmhouse, complete with a wealth of period features, including vaulted ceilings, stone arches, imposing fireplaces and frescoed ceilings. The elegant accommodation has plenty of room for 12 guests and the tasteful design is modern yet respectful of the villa’s heritage.
