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. More tourist-orientated attractions and facilities can be found in the attractive old town of Martina Franca (31km) and the city of Taranto (27km), the capital of the province.

Weather in Mottola, Italy

The period between May and October is the most pleasant in which to visit this part of Italy, as daily peak temperatures average in the mid-twenties, and above 30C is a regular occurrence. Outside of these months’ rainfall increases but temperatures remain mild.

The property was exactly as described and was maintained to a very high standard and spotlessly clean. As we were at the Trulli for a month we visited many restaurants, some local others further afield, and found them all very good. It would be difficult to choose a favourite. We visited the Rendezvous, in Martina Franca, several times for breakfast and by the end of our vacation we felt like members of the family. There is plenty to see and do in the region, beautiful beaches, wonderful churches and museums, wine tasting and superb scenery. My husband and I could not praise Susan highly enough. She was a great hostess. Nothing was to much trouble for her. Any little problems were dealt with immediately and with a smile. As our Italian is very limited Susan kindly booked several restaurants on our behalf and organised for a local cook to prepare a typical evening meal for ourselves and friends. The meal was wonderful and I would recommend anyone staying at the Trulli to try this experience. There is a supermarket in nearby Martina Franca that has everything that you might need and there is also a very good weekly market. Although our weather was disappointing (it was April!) it did not spoil our time in Puglia and would recommend this area to friends and family. (Both friends and family joined us during our stay). We left Puglia feeling relaxed and looking forward to a return visit. We also feel that we have made a good friend in Susan.

We are a Dutch extended family of 3 generations, 12 people, 6 adults and 6 children, age 8, 6, 5 ,4, 3, and 1 year. We felt at home. The house was clean, toys for all the kids, good beds and soft towels. It was comfortable having two very complete kitchens to cook for a big family. We ate very often altogehter at "home". The first week the weather was not that good, so the pool was cold. The second week the sun came and the solar heating did her work well. We could all relax. A top priority was to have a safe place for all the young children, - the fence off lockable swimming pool area, with its non slip pool surround. Thanks Jenny for your good service. We would like to recommend Trulli Sulla Cortina to all our Dutch friends and relatives. Gonny Vos
