Make a holiday rental home or villa in Castellaneta, Italy your home away from home

Located in the Taranto province of Italy, Castellaneta is a medium-sized comune which has a population of around 17,000 people. The town is perhaps most visited for its array of churches that date back over the last few centuries, but Castellaneta is also just 20km from the coast of the Ionian Sea and the Gulf of Taranto, so offers an excellent base for both a beach holiday and visits to bigger cities such as Bari and Taranto.

Things to do in Castellaneta, Italy

The centre of Castellaneta has a number of historical buildings, and if this is your forte you will be well at home visiting old attractions such as the 13th century Chiesa di San Nicole, the 15th century Chiesa di Francesco d’Assisi and the 13th century Chiesa di Santa Maria delle Lucce – the latter of which is home to a number of interesting frescoes. Castellaneta’s most famous son was the actor Rudolf Valentino, and you will find a number of buildings and businesses named in his honour as you continue your stroll around town.

If you would rather get out and about exploring the local landscape, a strong recommendation is to visit the Gravina of Castellaneta. The area is home to a number of carved caves which were once inhabited by locals, but some of which are now used as churches. The reason for the cave-dwelling was the scarcity of trees in this part of Italy, and some residents also built their homes out of rocks. Some of these layered rock structures (known as trulli) still stand, and can be seen at various points both in the town centre and the surrounding countryside.

Places to visit on holiday in Castellaneta, Italy

Castellaneta is 20km by road from the nearest town of Mottola, and this old destination makes for a great day trip. Mottola has a number of ancient churches and cathedrals, and is well-visited for its elevated position 400 metres above sea-level, which permits some stunning views from around the town. Taranto, the capital of the province of the same name, can be reached in around 45 minutes by car and boasts the best amenities in the region.

Weather in Castellaneta, Italy

Average high temperatures in January in Castellaneta are a mild 12C, and these increase by two or three degrees every month until the hottest months of July and August, which often see temperatures above 30C. If you are intent on avoiding the rainfall it is best to visit Castellaneta between April and August – though the old short shower is unavoidable whenever you visit.

Flights to Castellaneta, Italy

Taranto Airport does not receive direct flight from the UK, so the best way of getting to Castellaneta is to fly to Bari Airport (BRI), which is 69km to the south of the town. The airport (which is also known as Palese Airport), receives UK flights from British Airways and Ryanair. The use of a hire car is the best way of getting to your Castellaneta accommodation.

Very comfortable beds (although the wine and limoncello may have helped!), a well equipped kitchen and a large dining table made it perfect for our large group. The pool was great - the kids loved it, and the masseria is not too far from some lovely beaches, restaurants and shops. Alex and Julia great hosts, very helpful and not obtrusive at all. All in all a great property, highly recommended.

The Trullo is located about a 10 minute drive from from the world heritage town of Alberobello. It should be noted that having access to a car is essential. The Trullo itself is well maintained and is authentic. By this I mean that the arches inside the Trullo that lead to the kitchen and master bedroom are a bit low so taller folks need to watch the height. We felt that the intimate interior added to the charm of the place. Once you enter the kitchen, and the master bedroom ceiling height and space are not at issue. That being said, Trullo Serena is meant to be enjoyed outside (Al Fresco). The design of the outside covered eating area, the beautiful pool, the lounge area (shaded by olive trees), the built inn BBQ and the lovely automatic night lighting have been well thought out by the designer. There was even an adjacent storage area that housed the clothes washing machine and a wine fridge (which received a lot of use during our stay). We thought it was pleasant request that the we were asked to leave the driveway gate open in order to allow a farmer access to his olive groves which were just west of the Trullo. We were also impressed with the local agent who manages the property as any questions we had were immediately addressed. There are many adjacent towns that are a pleasant drive and are well worth a visit. The Adriatic sea and beaches are about 25 minutes to the east. In summery, we enjoyed out stay at Trullo Serena and we can recommend this property to anyone who would like the experience of staying in an authentic and updated Trullo.

Everything was in order and the directions to get there and get in worked beautifully. We had a lovely welcome pack which was perfect after a late journey and there was shopping 10 minutes away on the Sunday to stock up. We had a few little problems with the villa, the PlayStation didn't work ( although saved me from having to drag one of my 11 yr olds off it to enjoy Italy !) and the alarm was faulty. Maura was fantastic though and completely looked after us. She responded really quickly to any queries and was a great source of local recommendations for visits/ restaurants etc. We were there at the end of October so we had mixed weather with some days a little cool but the heated pool meant we could use it every day regardless.
