• Puglia
  • Overview

    Also known by its Roman name Apulia, the unspoilt Puglia region stretches from the spur of the Gargano peninsula to the heel of Italy’s boot. The region boasts unspoiled gently undulating plateaux with forests, medieval pilgrimage towns, massive fortresses and fortress-like churches. With its gorgeous beaches, forests, historical sites and wonderful wine, Puglia holidays are second to none.

    Puglia in Italy’s southeast boasts beautiful beaches, golden sands, pine forests, undulating countryside with groves of olive and almond, and fantastic food. Although the region appears exclusively Italian, it has a rich cosmopolitan past with Greeks, Germans, Spaniards, Moors and Normans having bequeathed a delightful combination of architectural heirlooms including baroque churches and Romanesque cathedrals.

    The area boasts links to ancient times when construction techniques used for the famous whitewashed trulli houses were imported from Greece or the Middle East. Our stunning range of hotels in this region ensures complete luxury on your Puglia holidays. Visitors will enjoy staying in a masseria, grand restored country farmhouses and mansions; and Lecce, the Florence of the South with its Roman amphitheatre, is a must-see.
