Puglia, Italy
  • Seven trulli (with more to come) plus a villa
  • Olive groves, lemon trees, fine wine: the real soul of Italy
  • Sandy beaches in easy reach, and history on your doorstep
  • A slower pace of life

The sun-drenched region of Puglia – in the far south east of Italy – is all but unknown to many holidaymakers. Consequently, it has maintained its authentic Italian feel. Here, medieval hilltop towns overlook gently rolling countryside, consisting for the most part of attractive olive groves, terraces and vineyards surrounded by dry stone walls.

At Coreggia, just outside the World Heritage Site of Alberobello, you will find a slice of Italian heritage, in the shape of a group of small trulli – traditional conical cottages now available as holiday homes. These unusual and delightful properties are situated in a very peaceful rural setting, and they have been carefully restored, enlarged and adapted for modern living whilst retaining the character and charm of the original dwellings. There is a communal swimming pool close to the properties and each trullo has its own patio area.

Try a variety of Italian food and wine

Puglia is well-known for its amazing variety of food and wine, as each town has its own cuisine to reflect its history, traditions and nationalities. Eating is a social event here that brings everyone together, so don't be afraid to get stuck in and try a bit of everything.

Food fairs are a regular event, with the majority taking place in July and August – be sure to check them out if your visit coincides.

Visit the famous trulli town, Alberobello

If you've fallen in love with the trulli at Coreggia, you'll certainly want to visit Alberobello (meaning beautiful tree in Italian), as it's also known as the Capitale dei Trulli. There are more than 1,000 white-washed trulli here, built across two hills. This World Heritage Site is unique and should not be missed.

See the incredible sassi cave dwellings at Matera

Just over the border in Basilicata is Matera, which is famed for its cave dwellings, known as 'sassi'. As well as the homes, there are more than 120 cave churches, all of which were excavated from the rock. Even today, people still live in these caves, though they have been renovated to better accommodate modern life.

According to UNCESCO, Matera has the most “intact example of troglodyte settlements in the Mediterranean region”, so it really is worth stopping by. You can even visit the sassi themselves to see what it's like to live in a cave. There are many wonderful frescoes to admire too.

Explore Castellana's limestone caverns

If you haven't had enough of caves yet, the limestone caverns at Castellana are beautiful and the best in all of Italy. First discovered in 1938, these interlinked caverns are full of stunning stalactite and stalagmite formations, but the real highlight is the Grotta Bianca. The stalactites in this white alabaster cavern are incredibly thin.

Admire the architecture in Lecce

Lecce's nickname is the 'Florence of the South' thanks to its amazing architecture. The cathedral is the real stand-out attraction, with its Baroque art and twelve altars.
