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

The Taranto province is dotted with traditional old villages that will take you off the beaten tourist track, and the best way of finding these is to rent a car and head out for a spot of exploring.

The finish in the property is excellent, a well equipped kitchen and plenty of space for our family of 5. The outside space is fantastic with large areas of paved patio to several sides of the residence and plenty of places to sit in the sun or shade. The large covered terrace is particularly pleasant. The pool is a great size and has loads of space around it. The location in its own olive groves is very peaceful and relaxing. A car is vital. The property was very clean and well prepared on our arrival and the meet and greet without problems.Communication with the owner was easy and prompt. Very happy to recommend this property.

Ricordi che si vanno a sovrapporre alla ricchezza di storia che si respira in questa grande casa di famiglia. Grazie - soprattutto a Peppino - e a tutti. Con affetto.

Inside the trullo was pristine and well equipped. It is fairly small inside which is irrelevant when the weather is good and outside living is the norm ,but slightly "cosy " when confronted with heavy rain and storms. Outside the seating areas and pool are lovely and the location is peaceful and quiet with only a 10 minute drive in Martina Franca . Madeleine and Jur were perfect hosts and very helpful regarding restaurants shopping etc.
