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

Riding high above the vineyards laden plains of the Puglia countryside, Cisternino stands out as the jewel in the Brindisi crown. The medieval streets are filled with whitewashed villas, providing an eye catching contrast with the blazing blue summer skies and the rich colours of the surrounding countryside.

Things to do on holiday to Cisternino, Italy

There are few places where you can truly enjoy slowly wandering the streets taking in the scenery, but Cisternino is clearly one of them. Voted among the top 15 prettiest villages in Italy, Cisternino’s beauty can be found as soon as you enter the huge town gates. The whitewashed houses are given a splash of colour with the colourful flowers which adorn the balconies, little courtyards and open stairwells that give Cisternino villas their iconic form. There are still some excellent relics from eras past in Cisternino including the Renaissance Bishop’s Palace and the 14th Century Church of St Nicholas, both of which are still adorned with masterpieces of art and sculpture. The tower of the Palazzo Amati and the crypt of St Nicola di Barion are also worth investigating.

The quaint squares and covered courtyards of Cisternino hide a wealth of cafes, restaurants and bars, which fill the air with mouth watering aromas, which can only be topped by the taste of Puglia’s finest delicacies. The cuisine of Puglia is absolutely magnificent, and from a Cisternino villa, you can sample the absolute best of the district. The local wines offer a perfect accompaniment, and you will undoubtedly need a fair amount during your stay in a self catering Cisternino villa, mainly as you will want to take as much as possible home with you!

The countryside which surrounds the village is perfect for walking, cycling and horse riding in the sun. There are many miles of tracks throughout the lush green plains of Puglia that you could travel for many days and never see the same part of the land twice. Much of the land you will see is covered in vineyards, and for the budding connoisseur, local owners offer tours and wine tasting sessions to many visitors.

Places to visit on holiday to Cisternino, Italy

A Cisternino villa is a perfect base for full exploration of Brindisi and the further attractions of Puglia. Lecce, Brindisi and Taranto are all located within easy striking distance of Cisternino accommodation, each offering the visitor a new insight into this beautiful region. The Puglia coast is never far either, and you can be sunning yourself, pottering around in a sailing boat or swim in the warm sea within 15 minutes of leaving home.

Weather in Cisternino, Italy

Between May and October, average monthly temperatures are over 20˚C, with daily peaks just breaking into the 30’s. This period, aside from the hottest months of July and August, when the beaches become irresistible, many people flock to Cisternino villas for the sensational walking and riding. Cisternino is a magnificent hideaway in the winter too, as temperatures are rarely below 15˚C.

Travel to Cisternino, Italy

Brindisi Airport (BDS) is only 40km from a self catering Cisternino villa rental, and luckily for visitors from the UK, Ryanair provide a regular service from London Stansted (STN) directly to Brindisi. Taking a hire car from the airport is probably a good idea as it lets you get easy access to both the beaches and towns of Puglia, allowing you to truly get the most from your holiday in Cisternino.

The trulli is in a stunning rural location but only a short walk from a small village or a short 5 minute drive from the local town. It has been beautifully renovated and provided everything we needed. We pretty much lived outside using the BBQ and outside lounge in the evening. We spent many a night star gazing and watch satellites and shooting stars overhead creating many magical memories with our two young daughters. The pool is amazing and the girls would play in it all day long. The surrounding towns are stunning and offer plenty of opportunities for foodies. The beaches are amazing but can get very busy during peak season. If you go early in the week you can avoid the crowds that you get at the weekends. All in all we had a perfect stay and I would highly recommended this property for a relaxing family break.

The house was nice and warm, there was fresh fruit, biscuits, water and wine, ready for a quick goodnight snack. The next morning it was a beautiful sunny morning. It was easy to find our way in the well equipped kitchen and establish a breakfast on the terrace under the porch. What a view!! A wonderful garden, a neat pool and the blue sky above. Time for an easy day by the pool. In the house there is a very personal guidebook to the local area: Cesternino, Martina Franca, the bicycle path on the viaducts, the local inns etc. Also wonderful, very local advice about the cats and dogs that come by the house, if kids or adults are fond of pets. Very cute and friendly animals, by the way. The house is very well suited for five adults staying for a whole week.The living/dining room works perfectly as the gathering point, when the weather keeps you inside in the evening. With three bathrooms the logistics getting out of the house works well. It is a very well functioning house. The architecture is a great experience. Beautiful lime stone walls, very tasteful combination of modern functionality and old building tradition. Trullo life is something different in the nicest way! Ostuni is a beatiful town. So is Tarranto. Very nice walking streets and harbour area. Take a closer look and you will find out about italian corruption and neglect. We recommend visiting the ecological olive production Antica Masseria Brancati, with trees more than 3000 years old and a roman basement with production facilities. Rent this house and you will be gifted with a wonderful stay in the nicest house situated in a great area with a lot to experience.

It is situated away from the town so transport is essential, the nearest town San Vito dei Normanni has many small bakeries, butchers and greengrocers if you prefer these to the 3 supermarkets in the town. A large weekly market is held each Monday. The Massaria is decorated to a high standard and has character.
