Puglia - The region: Puglia officially gets more sunshine than any other region in Italy, thus extending the holiday season from Easter until the end of October. The climate is typically Mediterranean with dry heat in summer and mild in winter.
The Puglia region is famous for its blue skies, rolling sandy beaches, exquisite food and wines, amazing architecture and general laid-back lifestyle.
Puglia borders two seas, the Adriatic and the Ionian, and provides 80 per cent of Italy’s olive oil.
The fertile red soil,dry stone walls and warm climate give this area a distinctly 'eastern' flavour, where the trulli houses look like pointy hats.
Far from being dry and arid this narrow peninsular grows some of the best produce in Italy due to the water retentive soil. There are local wine cooperatives at Locorotondo (vino blanca) and Martina Franca (vino rosso) but you will also find small local wine producers where you can buy wine on the side of the road.
Ostuni and surrounding area: There are a variety of historic Puglian towns and cities to visit, small fishing hamlets or beaches to explore, many under-developed or somewhere you hire a lounger and sun umbrella. Here are some suggestions.
From the terrace of your villa you will see Ostuni. The old town is a citadel, built on the top of a hill and still fortified with the ancient walls. With its typically white-painted architecture, Ostuni is commonly referred to as 'the White City” ('La Città Bianca') The old town is a maze of cobbled streets with delights around every corner. Fresh fish shops are plentiful with the best of the days catch and open late into the evening. Depending on time of day, you can eat or drink in any number of cool bars and enjoy some of the region’s finest restaurants.
We are a young family from London with two young boys who love the beach, outdoors and space to run around in a quiet setting. After searching Italy for a holiday home, we fell in love with Puglia for the weather, beaches, space and food.

The villa is in a beautiful position, safe and quiet and it's spacious, clean and modern inside with a wonderful terrace overlooking Ostuni pefect for outside living.
The villa is in the countryside yet only 5 minutes drive from bustling and beautiful Ostuni and a 10 minute drive to Ceglie Messapica with its gourmet restaurants and pretty town. Just 15 minutes to the beach and a 20 minute drive through beautiful countryside to Martina France and Cisternino.
The villa has a panoramic view of Ostuni. With its typically white-painted buildings, Ostuni is commonly referred to as 'the White City” ('La Città Bianca'). The old town is a maze of cobbled streets with delights around every corner. Fresh fish shops are plentiful with the best of the days catch and open late into the evening. Depending on time of day, you can eat or drink in any number of cool bars and enjoy some of the region’s finest restaurants. Or simply sit in the main piazza and watch the world go by with coffee or an ice cream. Each year a three day festival is held in the name of the city’s patron saint, Saint Oronzo, from the 25th to the 27th of August. The market is held every Saturday morning in the new town and is fabulous for meat, fish, fruit and vegetables.
If you want to play golf there is a seaside 18-hole championship course about 30 mins away called Masseria San Domenico or a 9 hole called Masseria Torre Coccaro. Both have spa, pools and restaurants and visitors can hire clubs. There is also a new 5 star hotel at Torre Coccaro - The Borgo Egnazia that has a championship golf course, spa and health facilities.
