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 house provided a perfect base for our Italian vacation. The staff was very accommodating with our larger group and managed to squeeze a cot into the third room so the girls could sleep together. With the heat and teenagers who loves sleeping we ended up spending less time out and about and more time enjoying each other's company poolside. The pool was perfectly clean (cleaned once while we were there even), big, and a comfortable temperature. The house is well appointed so making our own meals was easy even with two cooks in the tiny kitchen. There was room for visitors for dinner outside with places to relax and chat. The beds were comfortable and the house clean on arrival. The house is very private in a beautiful countryside making it hard to leave.

We have just returned from a week’s stay (end of June 2016) as a family of four (with a four-year-old and a nearly two-year-old) plus one set of grandparents who joined for a couple of days. The house, grounds and location were perfect for us to have a relaxing and enjoyable time. The trullo is very well configured and in excellent condition. The decoration, finishes and furniture are all to a high standard playing on the character of the building but also modern enough to make it feel fresh and appealing. All four bedrooms are of a good size and comfortable (two with double beds). The location is beautifully rural and tranquil whilst being close to the conveniences of Alberobello (a very pleasant country lane drive) and within easy driving distance of the coast and Puglia’s various attractions. It took us about an hour to travel from/to Brindisi airport. A car is essential! The pool is large and was a good temperature in the near 30oC outside heat. Our boys would happily spend all day in it! It was clean, tidy and safe (being fenced / gated). The surrounding gardens have matured since the website photos were taken and were very well maintained. The shaded terrace areas are a welcome retreat for lunch etc. The surrounding olive groves and fields are fun to walk around and we were able to pick cherries and pears. We were made to feel welcome (local cheese and wine already in the fridge!) and would have loved to have stayed much longer!
