Located on the “heel of the boot” of Italy, the Puglia region is an ideal holiday destination. With a fascinating history, great weather and charming towns, it is little wonder that this region is becoming increasingly popular with visitors from the UK. If you would like to visit this region for your next vacation, then consider a holiday rental villa in Posto Rosso. Fully equipped with everything that you might need to feel at home, it is a perfect base for those of an independent nature to enjoy the coast, and to explore the region in general.
There are a number of recreational activities that you can choose from whilst on holiday in Posto Rosso. Snorkelling is certainly a big attraction here, with rocky waters that attract many colourful fish. Fishing, as a consequence, is also popular with some people! Add this together with cycling, tennis, swimming, canoeing, horse riding, golf, nature walking and hiking and there is enough to keep even the most active people occupied.
If you would like to get out and about to see some of the Italian countryside whilst on holidays in Posto Rosso, then you will be well rewarded. Taking a drive through the olive tree covered countryside, you will soon discover many charming little villages and towns. The fortified town of Gallipoli is one such place, and is worth at least a half day visit, if not more. Further north, Lecce is often described as the Florence of the south, and again a half or full day spent wandering around its beautiful streets is time well spent. Archaeological sites abound in this area, as do many places of outstanding natural beauty. With so much to see and do in the vicinity, it is always a good idea to plan a sightseeing itinerary before you head for the region.
