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

Just a few kilometres from the ‘heel’ of Italy, the old town of Mottola lies within the Taranto province of Puglia, around 27km from Taranto itself. Mottola is known as the ‘Ionian Spy’ due to its strategic, lofty position, almost 400 metres above sea level - with panoramic views of the Taranto Gulf to be enjoyed from all around the town. Tourism is on the increase here, so get in while you can, and make sure you book your Mottola self-catering accommodation nice and early.

Things to do in Mottola, Italy

As previously mentioned Mottola has a hillside location, and some stunning and far-reaching views can be enjoyed from various vantage points around the town. A walking tour of the town centre is the best way of getting your bearings, and as you go you will find that a number of historic old buildings will quickly grab your attention. These include the 13th century cathedral, the 17th century Church of the Immaculate and the 16th century Chapel of St Mary of Constantinople.

Agriculture and food production are the mainstays of the local economy, and sampling the local produce will likely be a big part of your holiday in Mottola. The main focal and meeting point of the old town (known as ‘La Schiavonia’) is the Piazza XX Septembre. And around here you will find a number of cafes, food shops, small restaurants and other food-related businesses, providing you with ample opportunity to enjoy the traditional favourites and purchase fresh ingredients to cook with when you return to your Mottola holiday villa.

The area surrounding Mottola has been declared a natural and archaeological park due to its Byzantine settlements, and makes for some great walking and hiking under the warm summer sun.

Places to visit on holiday in Mottola, Italy

It's rural but close to lots of interesting little towns and villages and the owners recommended some great local restaurants. The property itself is very pretty and the Trullo was cool even when it was boiling outside. The interior looks better than the pictures - bed is comfy, the dining area large and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare some simple meals. The only warning is the shower is very small - you're liable to get water everywhere! The terrace is perfect for a Aperol Spritz in the evening and pool was cool and clean with a couple of comfy loungers. The whole plot consists of another slightly larger Trullo, and the owner's lovely villa, but only the roof of the other Trullo is visible from the terrace so it feels very private. The pool is shared with the other Trullo but we had it to ourselves most of the time. The owner was really welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Five stars.
